STOP RUINING THE GAME
Little by little the makers of TF2 are killing the game. It is bad enough when you have a Uber that the Pyro's can just blow ya in the air the whole Uber. now if you even get close to the Engie and his sentry's all he does is Short Circuit all the stickies. It's like the same maps over and over again cause no one is winning the maps cause of this. Not to mention playing on M v M the Engie can zap all the robots stickies and stuff.

Note to the makers of this game: Are you Demo haters or what? I mean everything you guys make seems to just make all the other classes weapons stronger and the Demo's weaker. Now the heavy's can and every other class shoot the Stickies of Demo's.. The Pyro's can Blow them away or shotgun them. And now the Engie has 2 Weapons to kill the stickies.

OK Enough is enough on the Demo hatred. It takes me 8 Stickies to kill a Scout any more and a scout can out run a Demo and can Shoot me 2 times and I'm dead. The classes at the start of the game were what they should be. The faster you are the weaker your weapon is. The slower you are the more your weapon can hurt. If your in the middle like Demo's and Pyro's then it should be a balance between the two.

But this Short Circuit needs to stop. I tossed at least 100 Stickies at a Engie and maybe 1 went off. Sorry that is just stupid. There should be a limit if you want something like that. But a Engie next to a Locker or a Level 3 Dispenser is ridiculous!

You know demo isnt the only class in tf2?

Demo is overpowered man
the next thing they will do is make the area sniper headshots 8 times larger than it already is. you dont even need to aim and you can single shot kill someone on the other side of the map...
demoknit. iz gud plan.

For a long time, I've considered the stock stickybomb launcher slightly OP. Now, I think it's balanced. This short circuit buff is good in my opinion.

Because everyone uses the escape plan

nice 350 hours played.
you are aware that the solly is inherently slower than the engy and that besides the escape plan/discip, theres no way for a soldier to catch a backpeddling engy?

what, youre gonna tell me to rj and try to garden his ♥♥♥?

Let's see you make a better one.

Also, Scout can kill most classes at point-blank range in one to two shots. They all probably can. It just depends on your skill.

You got that right Bro. Hitbox on the Huntsman is so big you can hit people without aiming.



And I like Demo. But I'm tired of the Demo Haters at Valve. I have played this game for over 5 years. As anyone can see most of that time has been spent as Demo. I have not said a word on anything in all these years. And as more and more weapon hatred towards the Demo seems to be now.

But this Short Circuit thing is like the last straw. It's out of control with these Programmers and their Demo Hatred. If anyone remembers it was 40 Stickies in the beginning and 40 for the Solly's. But they cut them back to 20.

It's just years and years of taking. It's to frustrating playing a game that all you do is take away from Ubers. The Pyro should be limited to 4 Blows up in the air. If a Pyro is good enough they can just blow the Uber in the air the whole time.

Zapping all the stickies in a single Zap and repeatedly so quickly is stupid. I mean what is next giving the Scout a Nuke or something? The Sniper with a AIM9 Missile? Sentry's that shot fire? I mean enough is enough. Keep to selling your hats ok! Stop ruining the game.
well most item updates were made because something was affecting the gameplay of the well.. game. have you noticed how a good amount of updated items are ones that were considered overpowered in their beginning stages, orhad gone a while being underpowered or underused? the short curcuit was the epitome of terrible engineer items, and finally it got updated, same went for the quick-fix, albeit the fix to the quickie was mostly due to underuse.

the amount of sticky and RL ammo seemed way too high being at 40, since the weapons were also given splash damage, so they were made to be a little more equal. people hated the minicrits given to the popper since it seemed OP, and thus it has finally been changed. curcuit hype will certainly die down soon enough, so sticky death is bound to die down.

The Short Circuit is still going to be used frequently unless it gets nerfed. The most that would happen is that the novelty of almost shutting down and killing soldiers and demomen would wear off and engineers would start properly using the Short Circuit for defense.
