        Some autist at Valve though he could get away with cucking every weapons that made degreaser OP so he fucking ruined Axtinguisher and reserve shooter believing he might keep the degreaser as is. Turns out that shit was still broken as piss and shit and they had to SHUT IT DOWN.

        Fun my fucking ass, that shit made Scout literally unplayable.

          the degreaser nerf when Pyro was already incredibly weak without it was the last straw for me, haven’t played vanilla since. Better for TF2 to remain a happy memory than keep witnessing its mangled corpse.

            That shit was busted and turned the entire community into a bunch of paranoid people everytime they killed a spy.

            It was fun as fuck when the spy hat worked and you could negate the only downside of it

          Still a retarded item, it’s less retarded than it was before but it’s absolutely laughable to give a sniper an option to double his health against a class he beats 99% of the time with no discernible downside whatsoever, god forbid a sniper have to leave his sightline for 5 seconds because he somehow didn’t instantly kill a pyro a million miles away who actually landed a flare. It’d be like giving pyro a melee weapon that just gives him 50% more health against explosives and make him immune to knockback

            what’s good is playing what you enjoy and working with you team, as long as you work with your strengths along your team’s, TF2 just forces you to be a good team

            Here is a simple guide
            Scout: Stock/Milk or Pistol (most of his secondaries are good)/Basher
            Soldier: Do whatever you want other than LibLauncer/Airstrike, Gunboats or Battallion/Whip, escape plan or market gardner
            Pyro: Stock/Panic attack or scorch shot/powerjack
            Demo: Stock, Iron bomber is allegedly better because of hitbox sizes?I dunno.
            Heavy: Stock or Tomislav if you’re a shitter/Sandwich or Banana/GRU, Tickle mittens or FoS
            Engineer: RR/Wrangler/Jag is the certified shitter baby loadout
            Medic: Crossbow/Medigun of choice/Ubersaw or Amputator.
            Sniper: Stock or Bazaar Bargain/Jarate/Bushwacka
            Spy: Stock, L’etranger or Diamondback if you wanna be a shithead / All watches are fine but DR isn’t quite what it’s used to be but still has use with kunai+DR setups and stock sapper

          I’m genuinely glad the Dead Ringer got nerfed, it should’ve never been added to the game. It isn’t fun to play against and it’s absolutely braindead to use.

        See, the TF team was always fucking stupid, but there’s no way the Bison nerf wasn’t a purposeful "fuck you" before leaving the game to rot.

      with old airblast being a hitscan stun, it was broken when it used to work with pyro, it’s still pretty dumb on soldier
      unlocks were a fucking mistake, giving single players the ability to do what should require a small team, in team fortress 2

      Because they decided that weapons need to be balanced based off of competitive.
      Because TF2 is totally meant to be a competitive game.

        reminder that compfags have gone on record saying that certain blacklisted weapons are perfectly balanced in normal play and that they’re only banned because the 6v6 meta is incompatible with them.

      Because some idiot at valve thought, hey pyro also launches people in the air, I’ll just give him this weapon designed and balanced around soldier.

        It could have been interesting balancing weapons by others you had equipped, but it was implemented horribly by tying them to hats as well, and generally making the stats only positive like extra health on scout or fucking headshot immunity on sniper

        Because they were stupid? Like correct me if I misremember any of these but:
        >150 health scout and the shortstop was an actually good item
        >anti-sentry set for soldier with the worst rocket launcher for dealing with sntries
        >110% pyro who could still flare punch and powerjack turned every unaware sniper into a medium health kit
        >Sniper’s set, I shouldn’t have to say anything else
        >Silent decloak when DR was at its peak in strength

      fags on tf2 complain about every weapon being overpowered, probably because the player base is a majority children.

      Rewarding pyro with mini crits just for airblasting was fucking retarded and total cancer to fight against
      One of the few nerfs I actually agree with, but it probably would’ve been fine if they just made it soldier only instead
