Is Pyro really OP?
First things take a place in the earliest time of the chronological chain. A.k.a first things first. I do not hate the pyro, I am just trying to take an intelligent view into what the community thinks and partially what i might have played.

The one thing I hate about pyro. The flamethrower. W+M1 is undoubtedly skilless. 153 damage for walking at someone is not a very hard thing to do, especially when you don't aim. Yes you will die, but the point is that you will still kill people. And those people won't be very happy about it. If you need a comparison to say the sniper rifle, the flame thrower would do 300 damage before the sniper rifle could pull off a single 150 headshot and reload it.

The puff and sting is also a very insta-kill situation. Whether it is the axtinguisher (which was thankfully nerfed), the reserve shooter, or the flare gun. All of them deal great impacts of damage. However, you do have to aim with the flare gun and shotgun, but it isnt that hard to aim when you send someone straight up into the air instead of backwards like it was said it would. Most pro players say "it is harder than it looks, try it in competitive!" No, it is not that hard and no, competitive play is still the same. One of my experiences in the comp pyro setting is that i barely played pyro for the same reasons, I just don't like it as it is boring to me. But i played scout in my team, however, our pyro was sick and I had to take over because we had a backup scout. It was actually not that hard to get medic picks and kill competent players.

My personal thoughts on pyro. I kind of compare pyro to COD. The pyro's weapons have no real variability. They are basically all the same, so there is really only 1 or 2 loadouts you can use and do anything with. To me I find the pyro boring because it is, like COD, the same thing over and over again. Keep in mind this is my experience and if you actually get mad at this section, I don't know how to help you.

The community. There are basically 2 sides. However the side that hates pyro is margianally larger than the one that does not. The main argument to defend pyro is "U f2ps just havn plaed it enuf." I find this statement unreasonable because playing it won't change that it annoys you. I am not trying to defend COD here, but again, most players that use that statement have never played COD, yet they still judge it as a bad series. The majority that hates pyro is a great one, and if there are really that many people who hate it, there is an issue. It is like overthrowing a dictator. You have to have enough people and then it will make a difference. I'm sorry to say to the pyro lovers, but the majority wins and the pyro needs a change.

Post what you think in the comments below. And no "BUTT I LEIK TEH PYR0 CUZ HE IS MEH FAVRIT CLESS!" please, well you can post that for the joke, but nothing like that.

Killing amateurs is the pyros specialty. It's all he's good for. I'm sure other classes can do that too, but pyro doesn't have to reload as much as the scout or ssolly, or demoman, and so the pyro doesn't have to take as many short breaks while killing noobs.

Pyro is probably the most UP class.
Well i hate pyros but still is not easy too play for me as a pyro don t forgete they can burn with the flametrower and airblast so ye =l ! is easy too kill a pyro by a long distance of im talking about sniper =l For me the Op class is heavy Becaus he have the bigest hp then evryone is like nothing can stop then and when they are with medic well this is really annoying Scout : kill them by using natasha . Soldier: Just shoot don t worry he must shoot you like 4 times that you die well of course if he get crit . Pyro : kill him and eat fast your sandwitch before you get all burned . Demo : easy kill but don t get on stickys trap . Heavy : =XD same think . Engi : ubercharge and destroy is stuf . medic : Easy kill . sniper : not a probleme just try too not get headshooted but still watch out for huntsman . spy : well if you don t wanted too get backstabed just liseng carfelly because when you get un-invisible he makes a little noice so ye =p for me heavy is the Most Op class for me =p
So ye for me heavy Is the Most Op class

That is one long sentence right there.

Also, you think Heavy is OP? If any class is OP, it's the Demoman.

This is why i have 0 respect for bronies.
=l well Demoman is only annoying with Stickys this is why he is annoying =l this is the only think why he is annoying !

You can also avoid bullets, your point?
Because heavy is a rage class with a big hp and a weapon that have 200 ammo !
Well Good luck avoiding them =l because really avoiding bullets is hard too =l because they are little and very fast
