I still get annoyed when my scouting behind is on fire, and I standing right next to a friendly pyro who does nothing, just sits there and watches me die, and me being to far from a health pack to make it.
Not one of em can figure out that they can airblast the fire on their teammates off! :x

Not like you can tell them to airblast you. You know, with some sort of voice chat. If only such technology existed.

Even if I do, they will still just sit their and done nothing.

How can you be so sure if you've never tried that avenue of investigation?

No what I meant to type is even when I do they still sit there, I've tried it, I just have the misfortune of not being around pyros who knew they could do that.

A Lv3 Dispenser reloads the Heavy faster than he can fire and also affords him healing, though he's more vulnerable to headshots than just a regular Sentry.


I have done this to great effect before. Alex and I have even double-teamed it to defend a control point.

Yes, the human sentry is amazingly good, especially if teamed with an ACTUAL sentry.

I'd like to try that, but I haven't found a heavy to team up with me.

Next time I'm on your team, I try to pay attention to the chat, and I frequently play heavy.

Sounds good!

The other thing I could use sometime is a medic; I have both the Frontier Justice and the Gunslinger, and I keep racking up revenge crits but not using them before I die. I figure if I get ubered with plenty of those things, I'd be deadly.

I'm pretty good as a heavy. So long as I don't run out of ammo, im pretty hard to kill with a medic.

I'm enjoying Pyro and Scout. I'll be a Medic if I don't see anyone else as one, but I don't find it as fun. I'm trying to decide if Soldier has any benefits over the Scout, so I don't find him as fun.

I haven't tried the rest.

I love playing Pain Train Demoknight. I know some people don't like the Pain Train, but I've gotten some good runs with it.

Of course, Ullapool Caber is really fun as a Demoknight. Charge in, crit explosion wipes out everything. Retreat like a baby because you're flashing red. Repeat.

God I love the Backburner now that it can airblast. I mean, it's shit for actually trying to reflect rockets. That's such a bad idea. It's great for being able to extinguish teammates and being able to blow back enemies whilst you make an escape. I cannot tell you how many times I've back critsed up a Medic and his Heavy without either trying to stop me.

If you keep the flame burning, the Backburner's mini-crits tend to bring down foes very quickly, often before they realise since, hey, they're usually focusing on what's directly infront of them.

Yeah as a player of both Scout and Spy, I just tend to stay away from you pyros in general.

You mean crits, right? The Backburner does full crits.

So... just out of curiosity, am I the only one who actually prefers the Stickybomb Demoman to the Demoknight?
