The phlog is op
too many crits for just 225 dmg :<

Ideas to balance it:

A: crits into mini crits

B: remove the %90 resistances while taunting

C: doesn't have the full HP bonus

Well, the phlog has always been a situation. But, I believe that Valve already has their hands full at the moment with balancing the other weapons.

It has two meanings because stickies are a good way to kill phloggers

Basically a Backburner with 10% damage penalty.

No airblast is the biggest penalty for a pyro you can imagine, I was fine before the 10% damage penalty was added. Very easy to counter as a Soldier (blast them upwards then juggle them once to kill, works even if they are crit boosted)

the hole point of phlog is it can't airblast, you need something for w+m1 purists

The phlog is something of a glass cannon. It makes the pyro incredibly easy to kill, as he has no defensive capabilities without airblast. It also hinders his team, as he can't put them out if they're on fire (unless he uses the manmelter).

When you use the Phlog, you essentially make yourself defenseless in order to achieve maximum offensive capability. Is it OP? God no. Phlog pyro's are the easiest to kill in the game. If they've gotten their 225 damage in order to get their crits, then that mean's they've been playing right.

10% damage penalty and no airblast? Don't even try W+M1.
And least played class is Pyro.

Gentlemen, I'm done here.

Ladies and mentlegen, do you think threads involving "Phlog is OP, Axtinguisher is OP, WM1 is stupid hurr durr" will end? Find out soon, in Valve time.

In short: Stop spamming ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥t related to "OP" weapons.

That would turn it into a far more inconvenient version of Jarate or Crit-A-Cola. Phlog is far from OP. It's the worst flamethrower. The extremely short amount of time of crits that you need to build up to and then stand there taunting for doesn't seem any more effective than just getting behind enemies with the Backburner and going to get health.
