Reasons to Love/Hate Pyro
I'm trying to compile a list of reasons to love and/or hate every tf2 class and I could use your help! You can give as many points as you like on any side of the spectrum, however please precede them with either + or - for love and hate respectively, so it is easier to organize. It can deal with his gameplay, personality, looks or anything as long as it can easily relate to Pyro.

For example:
+Nothing is more satisfying than burning an enemy to a crisp
+Ariblasting people off cliffs, wheeeeeeeeeee!
+His Meet the Team video was epic
+I really like his theme music, suits his personality
+That controversy surrounding his gender
+He's such a cutie(as cute as a psycho, axe-wielding, pyromaniac can be)
-More useless the farther away you go
-If you have a custom hit sound it can get annoying to repeatedly hear it when flaming people

Thanks in advance!

Well, the pyro takes no skill, it can attack and defend itself with just its primary... people dont use their flamethrowers properly, they just spam it.

Done and done.
Given the fact that map layouts for the most part are not very advantagious for Pyro and that they can get shot easily from a distance, you have to be rather cunning to play Pyro, and hope the Team are lacking in the whole checking the surroundings area.

Love
+ Fun Ambush Class
+ Gives lots of support
+ Airblast
+ Flameproof
+ Best spy counter
+ Best health to speed ratio

Hate
- W+M1
- People who think W+M1 is OP
- Worst DPS in the game
- Classified as an offensive class, is better at support than offense
- No advanced mobility options at a stock level
- Burst crits are annoying

Edit: Changed one sentence to be more accurate.

I just got the powerjack. I can move quicker now. Yes!
Haven't really tried Pyro jumping, myself. I need to learn it. -_0
I can't think of many uses for it, though.
