It’s been well over a year since Overwatch added Micro Missiles to D.Va’s kit, but a new YouTube video paying tribute to the offensive update has just come out.

D.Va’s Micro Missles were added in an update in September of 2017 in an effort by Developers to the hero more offensive options while using her Defense Matrix.

More than a year later, YouTuber TTMR has come out with an amazing animated tribute to the ability, a video they admitted took way longer than expected.

Blizzard EntertainmentMicro Missiles allow D.Va to deal significantly more damage.

In the video, D.Va’s cannons just aren’t getting the job done against Reaper, so she decides to upgrade her mech’s firepower.

In doing so she removes some of the power for her shield, but who needs defense when your offense is OP, right?

Things seem to go well at first, and D.Va’s new missiles help her team defend the point, until her shield runs out of energy. After that, it’s game over for her.

The video has come out long after the update, which just goes to show the amount of work TTMR put into the animation.

Since the Micro Missile update, D.Va has also had her Defense Matrix nerfed, so this video could really be about both abilities.

D.Va is undoubtedly one of Overwatch’s most popular heroes, so even though this video took a while to come out, fans probably won’t mind too much.

The Overwatch community is rallying behind a 26-year-old player who passed away earlier in October after defending a woman from a man who allegedly broke into her home with a knife.

Tiago de Souza, who reportedly played thousands of hours and mained Hanzo, Pharah, Sigma, McCree and Doomfist, reportedly gave his life to save a friend and her daughters.

According to Brazilian media, Tiago was at the woman’s house when her ex-partner broke in with a knife in-hand, trying to attack her.

Investigators say the suspect beat the woman with punches. When Tiago tried to interfere, he was allegedly stabbed and died on the spot.

The suspect later went to the police station in Prudentópolis on his own accord and was detained.

A petition on the website Avaaz describes Tiago as “very fond of science and questioning the mysteries of the universe.”

“He liked several games, but undoubtedly his passion was Overwatch,” the petition continued, noting how he had unlocked four golden guns for different heroes through competitive play.

Tiago enjoyed playing as Hanzo.

“Tiago was an incredible, selfless and generous person, who gave his life to save someone else’s,” the petition said. “We, friends and family, do not want your courageous attitude to be forgotten, and nothing better to honor you than with a tribute in your favorite game.”

So far, over 2,000 people have signed the petition asking Blizzard to honor the player, though they didn’t specify on how they would like the company to pay tribute to Tiago.

Potentially, if Blizzard were going to honor the player, they could do so on the Brazilian Lucio Ball map for the Summer Games event, or even something from Overwatch 2, whenever that game is released.

Blizzard does have a decent track record of honoring its players. Notably, Blizzard immortalized the streamer Reckful by adding a Rogue Trainer NPC with his gamer tag in World of Warcraft.

Hopefully, Blizzard can continue this trend an honor the Brazilian player.
