It didnt remember any of my pyro stats

For me , the stats were added a little later, the first time i checked: nothing, and then after playing for a few minutes, without actually getting achievements, I suddenly had a few anyway.

That compressed air effect makes the thing behind the compressed air look wavey. Cool effect. It's really a great defensive tool. You can bounce back any non bullet projectiles. I even killed myself by reflecting an enemy soldiers rockets back at my own feet and got killed by the splash damage.

not bad - the servers I play on have restrictions, so the NOW OVERPOWERED EVEN MORE pyro, isn't overly used.

You got a great body, but your record collection sucks....

Um yeah WTF is with a bug THAT big?!!?? It happens on every server I play now. I was just getting back into TF2

I think that is what happens when trying to connect to a server that hasn't incorporated the updates yet, isn't it?

I seem to remember the same issue immediately following the meidc update.

*sigh*

I was gonna start getting back into TF2, unfortunately the Pyro became my favorite class not long before I took a break from TF2. And now this.

Don't get me wrong, it's awesome. I'm just gonna have to play another class until the next class update.

These two need to be added to all Valve games.

Haha. Nuclear-nerf for Soldier. Why now with the Pyro buff though?

Isn't it obvious? So that soldiers that get rockets redirected at them by pyro's compression blast get the whole effect.

In addition to all the Pyro updates, welcome the excellent respawn bug that is now prevelant across all servers running the update.

"No matter what class you pick, you can be affected. You will be unable to respawn and be stuck in spectator view with your weapon visible. The game is now unplayable for me and a slew of others.

How a bug like this got out is beyond me, but I hope they fix it soon. What a HUGE oversight... disappointment..."


Too Funny

Ha ha

At least people will hopefully have gotten the medic out of their system. That was my fav class, and then EVERYBODY became medics
