These are so well animated, did someone buy motion capture equipment just to animate the reaper in a too-too??

#13 So... what did this update actually fix? in TF2 General Discussion
theoxandmoonHAWTHORNEZootSuitRioterHAWTHORNEPeople are only happy when they are moaning...I wouldn't say it's moaning. Creating legitimate feedback, especially about things that went wrong in the update is an important thing.
Its been barely 12 hours, I dont think people have played enough of the update to produce legitimate feedback.

I mean just reading through the changes you can tell Valve didn't really pay attention to real balancing. I'm especially confused because b4nny was supposed to be working closely with Valve. Did he forget to tell them what we needed?

It it is true, a lot of the changes that people hoped for have not been delivered.

However I feel that the changes that have been made are for the better; engi is less tedious, medic is more fun and valve are taking steps to create a better pyro.

Be happy that the game is still receiving large updates after 9 years.

In regards to b4nny, I'm not too sure on what his suggestions were. Does he have a video on his channel or something ???

HoodieThe shortstop is the most retarded thing I've ever played against.

Last thing scout needed was an air blast. It is good for mvm though... if anyone plays that still.

#229 MAJOR TF2 update for 7/7/16 (Meet Your Match) in TF2 General Discussion
SchweppesI'm just surprised they didn't touch the darwins danger shield since that's still one of the game's most broken items

So frustrating to play against, wouldn't be surprised if it became a standard for snipers in MM.

SelekHAWTHORNEPyro needs some reworking, airblast is insane, you can control anyones movement and you get crits on demand with the unlocks (unlocks that won't be banned).

How is not obvious it needs a rework.

True. It should however be balanced in a way to make the Pyro a higher DPS class close-quarter combat/assault class. Otherwise it would make the class useless.

[edit] To the people downvoting me: How would you rebalance Pyro? Taking something away without giving something else in exchange is hardly sensible.

In regards to your edit:
- Reduce the power of air blast, make the knock to a player similar to that of a sticky or rocket. Make it so subsequent air blasts have a weaker effect on players. So you can spam your air blast on projectiles just not players.
- Remove crits on the flair guns.
- The length of after burn is too long.
- Backburner doesn't need crits from behind. Mini would be suffice and still give the weapon an advantage, think of it as a back scatter but for the pyro.
- Degreaser should go back to its speedy self but have a more highly nerfed air blast.
- Phlog needs mini crits instead of crits, and an overheal instead of uber.
(edit)
- Scorch shot crits you twice if you are already on fire. It shouldn't crit burning players at all with it being so hard to miss with.
- Reserve Shooter needs to go back to 3 shots. Straight up nerf.
- Power jack should make you take proper minicrits like GRU.

tl;dr: Downvote me anyway.

edit: I get it, sorry for causing a shit storm, I'm happy changes are being made.
edit 2: This is not me running away from downvote, I would have removed the whole post otherwise.

Thing is, they are unclear on whether this class update is gonna be a rework or just new weapons and hats and shit. Pyro needs the rework more, but if it's just new stuff, Heavy should get it imo

I'm inclined to agree. Both classes need some reworking, more pyro that heavy, but both classes need some weapons that move away from there traditional style; the same way that demo-knight is effectively a 10th melee class.

I think we should wait for the update's weapon rebalances before we start crying about rebalances.

-snip-

Hardly crying, both classes will receive balancing no doubt. I would just like to see more of a development in pyro's game play. It is basic stale and brain dead atm
