wish said in Remove the dispenser block from Upward last:
The soldier can destroy the dispenser, but it telegraphs that the spy wants to cross into upper. A scout or pyro can then just sit where the dispenser was thus preventing the spy from crossing, until the dispenser is rebuilt.
the dispenser block has always been a really strong addition to upward last defense, but its made more egregious when your pyro is at spawn instead of in tiles. before, if the dispenser was dead, it was just the engineer you had to avoid. with the rest of the team at spawn, its impossible to get a lot done as spy because you’re forced to take these ranged fights where your revolver does 20-30 damage.
spy is reduced to enforcer-ing a gun and then just sitting there hoping the defense drops down at some point
