Oh YES.

But if this will kill my übered Heavy ass, it will not make me happy. It will make me very, very angry.

Does it shoot arrows straight, or do they curve?

Somebody needs to mod it so that instead of doing damage it causes players to fall in love and their directional keys / sticks to reverse their orientation.

I've never particularly found spies or snipers to be annoying to begin with, really. Also, as a primarily medic player, I kinda think anything that screws ubers over a bit is a good thing, on balance, so I don't really mind people having potential uber counters provided they are tricky to use. After all, we're a big asset in any sort of matchup as it is, but on pubs we're basically the hand of god and victory goes to whoever wins the halfway-decent-Medic arms race.

Someone taunted me for being a camper today! I haven't had that happen in ages, so it really felt like a blast from the past. It was funny though, because something in the guy's voice just said his heart wasn't really in it. I mean, I was working on my 9th unmolested kill in a payload map and had so far twice disrupted attempted ubers thanks to my stickies and an assist from a friendly medic. We both knew I wasn't going to merrily prance around that corner and into the loving arms of his crit rockets, so I do have to wonder a bit why he even bothered. I understand the theory behind taunting, it just doesn't hit me as worth the breath.

I mostly play Pyro. You won't believe how much "hurr W+M1 n00b!!1" I hear on public servers. Of course, then they accuse me of cheating as I flank them with my backburner ("omg how you get behind us?!" on levels like Dustbowl stage 3, cap 2), chop away with the Axtinguisher, and blast away with my shotgun when they're out of range.

The only time I W+M1 is on offense on payload maps. If you run laps around the cart, spraying fire everywhere, you can pretty much keep your team safe from spies. (They can try anyway if they want, and they usually do. Oh well, free kills.)

Oddly enough, I always thought being a good pyro is a lot like being a good medic; your aim doesn't need to be perfect but there's tons of situational awareness involved. You need to realize where players are most likely to knot up in small packs and you have to have a good feel for when a team should uber or make a big push. You then use that knowledge to rain fiery doom from above as you drop behind the opposing team and completely trash their push attempt mere moments before they would have ubered. Bonus points if you can punt a medic off a ledge with your compressor.

Frankly, the best thing about the Pyro class is going on axe-murdering sprees behind enemy lines. There's nothing like coming up behind a Sniper just for him to turn around soon enough to see his face get filled with iron. Oh, and the sound effects.

I dunno, I'd tie it with the scout and engineer as my least favorite, actually.

[EDIT] Actually, I watched the scout again and I liked that one better. It's all the time spent on stabbing, really, since I find violence to be a lot less entertaining than humor.

Also, the whole "Feelings? Look mate, you know who has a lot feelings? Blokes who bludgeon their wife to death with a golf trophy" line is pure gold. It I'm the sort of person who more or less values discipline over sentiment, so it was kinda weird knowing exactly what he meant and partly agreeing with him despite the fact that he's uh, let's just say, morally flexible. A nice reminder that it's best to find a happy medium, I guess.

Woah woah woah. I just noticed something exceedingly suspicious in the Meet the Spy Video. At the very beginning, when the Blue Soldier is looking at the wall of alert notices, there are some pretty amusing ones not lit up. But if you look into the lower-left corner, one of the possible alarms reads "leaked video". Questionable??? ?  :? :? :?

And the BLU Scout in the video has the Sandman, but he's really the RED Spy .

Does this mean Spies will be able to disguise with unlockable weapons from now on?

I'm pretty certain that the Scout is the best character Valve has created for this game.  I sat through the Spy video chuckling basically every time he came on screen.
