    But I play heavy. D:

    Granted, shotgun heavy... Actually starting to like the shotgun with that huge clip. Sort of wish it did more, or that Bad Idea flak-jacket would come out...

    It really is getting out of hand. Anytime you want to win get 2+ heavy medics and roll the other team.

    Mailbox is the best weapon in the game.

    Also, I think I'm missing something here. Is the detonator really just a straight upgrade over the flaregun? 'Cause that's what it seems like.

    Going back to vanilla doesn't resolve the issues really. There are plenty of good additions but also many bad ones. It needs cherry picking really.

    Wait, they gave the Backburner airblast? Are you guys for real? I assume this happened at some point during the six months ending last week when I didn't play the game? Holy shit.

    Well, I still like my Degreaser (now name-tagged "The Gaslighter.") It looks cool, and it makes a cool sound. And also quick-switching I guess.

    Heavies + medics have always been server dominators.

    I don't really have a problem with any of the new items. Eternal warrior + dead ringer is really annoying me right now, but that will change when people get used to them.

    Yes they have. Which is exactly why Valve needed to buff heavies 3 or 4 times!! and I'm not even including ludicrously over powered shit like Natascha, Tomislav or GRU.

    I notice Valve seem to have stopped/removed the link to the indepth TF2 stats. Presumably because they got tired of people emailing them saying 'LOOK HEAVIES HAVE MORE KILLS THAN EVERY OTHER CLASS COMBINED WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING!?!?!'.

    Well I dug around a bit and found some!

    Heavy: 6th most popular class.
    Ranked 1 in most kills/hour and most points/hour.

    Heavies average points/hour is about 35 points higher than second place; medic. Most other classes are close together, except scout that is way behind in last place.

    Other depressing statistical FACTS:

    Dustbowl is the most popular map by miles. Roughly 300% more popular than second place!

    The 2nd-5th most popular maps are all arena! Followed closely by yet more payload and then 2fort. Gravepit and Granary aka the best maps are bottom half.

    Conclusion: FUCK THE GENERAL PUBLIC, you guys ruin EVERYTHING!

    Maybe they took down the in-depth stats because they were bugged to the point of being hilariously useless. They used to say stuff like the sniper's SMG accounts for more total damage than the Demo grenade launcher.

    Also, if the Heavy was really as OP as people like to think and as the points/hero stats would indicate, would he really only be the sixth most popular class?

    Honestly, no offense, but as someone who has not been a regular follower of the TF2 threads here (my time on the forum roughly coinciding with my hiatus from the game), I have to honestly ask: Do you guys always spend this much time complaining about the game?

    Because part of the reason I stopped playing before was because I made the mistake of starting to read various TF2 forums like the SPUF one where it was just non-stop bitching and arguing about class and weapon balance and I let that sour me on the game. For some reason I expected things to be different here but the posts are like 50% grousing about how OP the Heavy is and it's like I'm in a Twilight Zone where it's 6-8 months ago or I never stopped reading SPUF.

    But yeah, Granary is ballin'.

    Yes, because being OP as fuck doesn't change the fact that heavy is boring as hell to play as. And also has a skill ceiling so low it wouldn't house an oompa-loompa.


    And actually, the stats are alive and well and kept up to date on the OFFICIAL TF2 wiki. And for the record, the SMG is 5th from bottom in the avg damage tables.
