      Your Uber is more important than anything. Foregoing Uber not only means you're a waste of a slot, but you are indirectly preventing anyone else from playing medic by means of their pressing tab and noticing we have a (useless) Medic already

      >If you use the crossbow within medigun range, just switch your fucking class and don't ever play Medic again
      Crossbow heals for 75-150. It provides burst healing in a pinch. If someone has taken damage in the last 15s, they are considered 'in combat' and healing them only ticks for 24 per second. It is way more efficient to pop a bolt on someone and then heal them as you get them to full quicker.
      >Foregoing Uber
      While you don't receive as much ubercharge for landing bolts on targets that are in combat (1/3rd), you're instead getting a player such as a scout back to full HP in under two seconds. The alternative is healing them for upto five seconds. It's a matter of urgency. For sure there's times where you need to get that 20 HP dude healed up ASAP.

      Surrounding myself with 3 meatshields and staying alive is more important than going from 17 to 55% ubercharge and dying anyway. Get back out there and die twice before we can make a real push.

                Never said my teammates suck, my exact opposite of my point, they're good. You have to realize being a good medic means juggling several people at a time, just to keep them pushing. Medic is crucial to almost any push, even in pubs.

        >slower than scout and doesn't give Medic the speed boost that scout can give
        and most importantly:
        >pyro has the range of a bee's dick; so you have to physically run up to enemies instead of shooting them, which wastes Uber time, especially if the enemy is spread out or running away

        For example, if you Uber a Demo, he will fire fast projectiles to destroy a Sentry in 3 shots from a distance in about 3 seconds, leaving you 5 seconds of Uber to kill with.
        If you Uber a Pyro, it will have to physically run at the Sentry while being knocked back, slowing it down. If the Sentry is on a ledge as they often are, think Borneo last or Dustbowl stage 3 cap 1, you might have to run up a set of stairs or go the long way around so Pyro's Flamethrower can even reach the Sentry. That might take your entire Uber.

        If you Uber a Scout, he can rapidly hunt down almost any enemy before they get away from him, and get multiple kills within the space of one Uber.
        If you Uber a Pyro, he can't chase down Soldiers or Scouts, and multiple dispersed enemies are slow to kill.

        There are situations where ubering the Pyro is a good idea, but generally speaking, ubering Pyro is a usually bad idea for the same reasons that picking Pyro to play is a bad idea.

          You must not play much Pyro because most of that isn't true in the actual context of the game. An Ubered Pyro can much more easily put damage on large areas of the enemy buildup around chokepoints and open a path for the rest of the team to follow and finish up.

          An Ubered Demo or Solider isn't going to have teh time to destroy a sentry, reload and then turn to clean up the rest of the team. You're also forgetting that Dragons Fury has nearly twice the range of stock flamethrower and absolutely demolishes Sentries.

            I'd also add that sometimes it's better for a demoman to have someone causing chaos and pushing the enemy team out of position than it is to make them invulnerable. A lot of the time the only reason I can't destroy a sentry nest is the fact that there's a fuckton of people guarding the spots where you're able to hit the buildings, which is worsened when there's an enemy pyro or short circuit engineer cucking every uber on you because you draw all of their attention. Even if the sentry is just pushing the pyro back they're still eating sentry aggro that lets you push as if you yourself are ubered.

              Ill also admit that most Pyros are shit, but the real potential of the class is extremely potent. Being able to consistently reflect projectiles is such an insane asset but not nearly enough Pyro players get good enough to get kills with it except for on accident.

            You must not play much Demo. Demo absolutely will. He doesn't even need to reload. He gets 8 stickybombs that each take 0.6 seconds to fire, so he can get all 8 out in 6.4 seconds. Then as backup he has 4 grenades (with the same fire rate) which would take 3.2 seconds.

            That's a potential 1,360 damage you can deal in the 8 second duration of an Uber without needing to reload once.

            Demo only needs 3, maybe 4 stickies to destroy a Sentry, that leaves him with at least 4 stickies and 4 grenades to kill other players with, from a distance unlike Pyro.

            Outside of the ideal scenario - all 12-6 players clustered in the same spot - Pyro will never have the range or mobility to "clean up the rest of the team", because Demo and Soldier can shoot people from a distance much faster than Pyro can run around to reach everyone who is on either flank.

            Ill also admit that most Pyros are shit, but the real potential of the class is extremely potent. Being able to consistently reflect projectiles is such an insane asset but not nearly enough Pyro players get good enough to get kills with it except for on accident.

            >Being able to consistently reflect projectiles is such an insane asset
            Not really. Only 2/9 classes commonly use projectiles to attack. And if either of those classes are as smart as the one reflecting, they won't just feed you projectiles. Demo's stickies can't be properly reflected and he fires them faster than Pyro can push them back; Soldier has a Shotgun.
            Everyone else uses hitscan you can't do anything about.

              And those 2 classes are the two most common frontline classes. And don't lie Anon, they CONSTNATLY feed you projectiles. They can't help themselves.

                Like I said, not intelligent ones. You were talking about the potential of the class. If you are a good Pyro fighting bad Demos and Soldiers, sure you'll do well but you were going to do well anyway.
                If you are a good Pyro fighting good Demos and Soldiers, you will not do well.

    crossbow was a mistake and should have never been added to the game.not only did it invalidate the needleguns forever because of the more reliable damage (post reload buff, whatever), it’s bred this class of medic players who think they’re PUG pros in the making by throwing twitch arrow heals whenever they cab instead of just using the medigun.

    Was playing CP_Powerhouse yesterday, the mid was a stalemate and had ran down to overtime, I capped it as a scout and then it became another stalemate at their final point, I switch to heavy eventually and I was 99.9999999% of the way to carry the team to victory with the Tomislav (killed 7+ people at their final cap, soldiers, medics, engineers, two heavies), there was a medic and another heavy with me in the small windowed balcony overlooking their last point (with the big healthpack and big ammo box in it), the medic was healing me, I hear he has ubercharge ready so me and the other heavy jump in to attack their sentry / last remaining few players, except:
    >the medic doesn't uber
    Turns out he had the Kritz equipped and when asked told us he wanted to use it on the "fist heavy". So anyway it turns out we failed the final push even though we had basically won at this point (the clock was at 2 minutes and they had like 3 people up), the medic cost us the game, all that time and energy spent wasted. Just a frustrating experience.

    I'm considering quitting TF2, it got 8.5k hours out of me, it's a good game but it's just not what it was. People think it's just le wacky silly hat game now, and you're regarded as a "tryhard" for treating it as a game to be understood and played. A team-based class-oriented game... and you're a tryhard for picking right and playing the team objective... it's been over for this game a while and the bots are just added cancer honestly. You can pinpoint the exact moment TF2 truly began to die, and that was when they added the conga taunt (2014) and that's on God. Overnight the game went from being treated as a game to being a wacky bullshit simulator. I remember feeling dismay, many with me, as teams ignored the game and just wanted to conga across the map. "Friendly" bullshit increased 1000%, where it was regarded as a troll and a waste of a slot and a team detriment before, earning you a kick, now it was openly tolertated, encouraged. RIP.

      Failing that, I would recommend competitive 6v6 or Highlander if you really want to play TF2 in a way that's taken seriously. You don't even have to go the super duper serious ranked competitive route, you can just play pickup games

      Powerhouse is one of the maps that gets taken less seriously in general, Payload maps are probably the most seriously played in Casual

          Yes I fully agree. Friendly shit is cancer, friendlies should be killed and kicked whenever possible to send the message that this is a first person shooter and not Second Life. But the real point is that regardless of the 'should', that's how the game is now, and if you want solutions they're there.
