has improved greatly over the course of one season, held his own playing against advanced/challenger teams easily, i’m very impressed with him! he’s got such little experience while being a genuinely good pyro, he’s going to get even better the more he plays

@pajaro i don’t know if there is any other item in the game that completely negates the existence of one class like the darwin’s does to pyro. the pyro certainly is the shortest range class in the game, and that’s why the class is so weak. if the pyro class was strong, i definitely wouldn’t be advocating for the ban of the darwin’s but pyro is extremely weak and i think that giving the sniper more weaknesses (such as being able to be flinched by afterburn until their full charge from cozy camper kicks in) is only a positive change to highlander. if pyro was as strong as say, scout, then i’d probably be advocating for the banning of the detonator too, since a strong close range class doesn’t need to be able to make up for it’s weakness in long range (this is why there is another ban discussion going on for the flying cleaver)
i don’t know if my replies will change your mind, and i don’t think that banning the darwin’s will solve the inherent problems with the sniper class, but i do hope that people read my posts and see that the sniper having a weakness to fire spam is healthy, rather than detrimental.
@pajaro i don’t think that the sniper should even have the option to avoid one class in the game unless they have shotgun or they take out their melee. it’s healthier for the game if sniper can be spammed out by a pyro using det/flares. most people agree that sniper is oppressive, so why shouldn’t we make an effort to make the sniper just a tiny bit less powerful and give the pyro a way to have some counterplay against them?
@tua once the scorch shot is inevitably banned it may not make much sense to run the darwin’s anymore until you start getting det spammed and start putting it back on to completely negate the existence of pyro until they are quite literally smacking you in the face with the powerjack. i don’t think that anybody considers the detonator to be OP, so why should sniper be able to avoid the consequences of not killing a det-spamming pyro when they peek? it just doesn’t really seem like an option that the sniper needs to have when the class is already so powerful and i really don’t think it’ll be fair for the sniper to completely avoid flame damage once the scorch shot is no longer in the game.
the sniper secondaries are not what make sniper OP but i think that they contribute, especially when one of them forces the pyro to put away their flamethrower/scorch/det/flare in favor of a melee weapon, just so that they can have a chance to kill the sniper. the most oppressive class in highlander should not be able to make nearly all of the weapons available to one of the weakest classes in highlander completely useless
i think that at this point the scorch shot is pretty much all but guaranteed to be banned, so why not make it a double ban and take the darwin’s away too, leading to healthier counter play against the strongest class in the game?
he’s on a quest

bump, i have a lot of mentees but seasons almost over and i’m getting less busy so i would love to do more demo reviews with pyros of any level
super nice guy and he’s a really good spy too, scrimmed him regularly all season and he always did really well, he deserved to make playoffs
ALSO HIS TRICKSTABS ARE REALLY NASTY
ggs home depot, big thanks to joey lemons for letting us use your server, we love you
honestly probably the best sniper playing in advanced right now, seen him do well against invite snipers too, he definitely belongs there!
to spu: i have seen strange comments from you on one person’s profile over the past few months. they have deeply disturbed me. is your obsession with perenne just a joke or is there something deeper there?
a true innovator of the pyro class, he honestly is the only pyro i have ever played against that made me think “man i wish i didn’t have to play this guy”
EDIT: i’m finding myself with a lot less time on my hands and the season is also starting so i’m going to be much less available for demo reviews than i was the past couple of months. feel free to ask anyways but no promises that i’ll be available!
hello everyone i took a 3 year break from tf2 but i’ve started playing again and i feel like i’ve gotten back into the swing of things pretty quickly. i didn’t really mentor back when i was playing in plat but i don’t see many pyro mentors around so i think it would be fun to spread the knowledge i’ve gained over the years. i’d love to look over the demos of pyros in any div, and i’m available at random times of the day. my schedule is pretty flexible, so just let me know what works for you, i don’t like to seek people out for demos or anything like that, but feel free to send me a message on discord: danny#0322
note: as long as this post doesn’t say otherwise, i will always be down to review demos!
