The point is the Pyro goes around killing everybody and only sees rainbows and unicorns. He is the definition of psychotic, capable of literally anything and unrestricted by emotion or morality...

I just bought my Rainblower :D
I don't care if it was 1 ref.
I can get it back later. It's not like I've been spending any of it.

You got a rainblower for 1 ref? I really thought they'd be more expensive than that. Good job!

I'm think of buying up to 10 scorched keys today and using 2 of them for myself and selling the rest. A lot of people are looking for these keys and don't want to spend the money on it.

I got the freakin' sweet Robot Chicken hat. I probably won't be wearing it that often, but its always nice to have. Plus, who doesn't love Robot Chicken? Also, what does everyone think of the new "Pyroland" Goggles? Its like I just took Bath Salts. I think I prefer normal Tf2-Vision over Lollipops and Rainbows. I also don't like how the Rainblower and Lolichop are just reskins of the default weapons. Why not the Degreaser and Axtinguisher?

If it wasn't for the new scout and sniper weapons, I would hate the Pyromania update. Pyrovision is a joke, indoors look awful and the white border around the screen throws me off. The only remotely funny thing about Pyrovision is how all the character's voices are high pitched, the demo is especially hilarious. Other than that, it's so unimaginative and just a bunch of reskins. I tried using the rainblower and didn't manage to get a single kill with it, and who even cares about the Lollichop. The scorch shot is just a crap flare gun and I'm not going to go out of my way to get it. Yes, totally agree that if there was anything in the Pyro's inventory that they should've reskinned, it's the degreaser. The lollichop can stay the fire axe I don't really care, but especially now with the +10% buff on all flamethrowers to make them at equal strength, there's absolutely no reason to skin the stock flamethrower if you actually intend on having people use this retarded rainblower. The only good thing to come out of it was that sick taunt that the Pyro got.

On another note, I got the Baby Face's Blaster and holy sdkfjljg I am in love with it. Rolling out fcking sucks but it makes dying that much less of an option. With full boost you're like a freakin gazelle, ain't nobody gonna get a hit on you. I also got the new sniper SMG if somebody wants it. I have a feeling they're going to update it because its effect is pretty damn useless. 3 second crits after you've cleared probably the only enemy that's going after you at close-range. Fantastic. lol

Robot chicken hat is awesome, looks great on Pyro lol

Meet the Pyro was.... not what I expected. it does confirm that Pyro is stark raving mad.

I could've got the robot chicken hat, but I didn't feel like signing up for it. oh well. I did make my own scorch shot. It's gonna take some getting used to.

also, I have 2 pyro crates and 2 ashes I have that I'm not going to use.
I can trade them if you want. if you're interested, let me know on my profile or add me on my steam account (it's in the top right corner.)

Hey, a hat thread. Nice. And it seems to be a trading centre.

Want to get rid of my Captain's Cocktails. They're that thing that looks like baby bottles in pyroland.

Il give you 2 Ref for a Strange Rainblower. I can go higher...

To me, the new Scout and Soldier weapons seem like gimmicks to me. What? Move slower only to get your speed back when a boost is activated. Plus, you can't even jump. Sure, the weapon has better accuracy, allowing for medium range combat for Scout. But 2 things:
1. This is why the shortstop was created.
2. This weapon and the shortstop completely craps on what the Scout was originally all about: Using your epic skills to get to point blank and taking everything down in 2 hits. Or in other words, hit run and strikes. This weapon just seems out of place.

Plus, how is the new Flare Crap? Its basically puff'n sting in a FLARE GUN. No need to waste Flamethrower ammo. Pair it with the Degreaser and Axtinguisher and that combo becomes even more deadly!

2.55 ref per key now, used to be 2.33 before 2012.

I'll trade you a reclaimed and a scrap for your S. Fists (Vanilla, right?).

Because I don't feel like explaining the entire story, my friend has some items for me that become tradable on the evening of July 1st that I don't want. So here's what I'm offering:

-Fed-Fightin' Fedora (Tradable July 1st)
-Bird-Man of Aberdeen (Tradable July 1st)
-Cleaner's Carbine (Tradable right now)
-Scorched Crates (Tradable right now)

I usually perfer Pyro stuff, but I'm open to any offer. My only rule, though, is no Demo stuff. I dun liek Demopan... Also, I have a gift-wrapped HHH Headtaker that was meant for someone else, but now rots in my backpack. So if anyone wants that, I'm open to offers for it too.

Mate, not really selling keys right now. Besides, it's not like I have a S. Rainblower or S. Lollichop, I want those too.

Also, all that for a rec and a scrap? WHAT A DEAL. [/sarcasm]

Hey, if you're just giving them away, I'll gladly take them off your hands. :D Steam account is in my user info above. Otherwise, it's http://steamcommunity.com/id/ethan_w

Loving the activity caused by the Pyro update. Everyone's playing Pyro and that means Spies are having a hard time.

Sure, but I doubt you're dumb enough to actually do that.

The new scout scattergun is really hard to work with. Getting your boost up without getting killed is harder than you think. You are now ridiculously vulnerable to heavy, soldier and demo, each of which can kill you without breaking a sweat. You're right that the shortstop was created with the same idea in mind where accuracy and damage is concerned, but I don't think that was Valve's first intention when making the Baby Face's Blaster. That was something they had no choice to add in order to make it balanced. Imagine the force of the vanilla scattergun, coupled with a Scout running at 150% speed. Practically unstoppable.

Yes, of course they crap on what the scout was originally all about. When you make a new weapon, unless you just want to rehash what you've already made, you're gonna change it up. I love the fact that the Baby Blaster renders jumping useless. It changes everything. As a scout, your job is no longer to run in there, get a pick or two and run out. Now your job is to run the perimeter, do a little damage on either end and if someone starts chasing you down, you can run circles around them without getting hit once, and get a pick if your aim is right. The Baby Face's Blaster is perfectly in place, it's just a very unique scout weapon. I have a feeling you won't be seeing it around a lot and most people are going to prefer the vanilla scattergun.

Making new weapons is basically making new strategies for a certain class. You think the demoknight is what the demoman is all about? Not at all. And some people can seriously use that loadout and do some decent damage. The YER on the Spy, I hate it. It's not what the spy is about because he can't immediately cloak, disguise, and uncloak in enemy lines. Makes you completely useless when sapping sentries unless you can backstab the engi first.

How is it not crap? 50% damage penalty? I'll gladly use my degreaser's 20 ammo to compression blast. Much more reliable to sting 'em with my 90 damage flare crit or my axtinguisher. And after I do that, I get my 20 ammo back plus 80 upon pickup of their gun. I'm sorry but the Scorch Shot is beyond useless.
