    It creates a toxic invorement and apart from the "Flare Gun" you dont have to hit your enemy to deal damage. which is also a bad thing since it keeps players at a low level of playing instead of actually trying to get better, which alot of players including me, gets mad at the facts its that easy for them to just shoot at the ground and deal damage, sure solly is the same but that is what solly is about, also solly doesnt deal damage over time after it has shot.

    I think it would just improve the feeling of playing on the server!
    also a no build zone on Turbine Middle. so it will be more fair. what i mean is that someone should but a "No Build" thingi, that makes engies unable to build in the middle of Turbine.

    While we at it lets ban all weapons like nades and rockets ?. NO

    Scorch shot fires a ball (FLARE)_ of fire that rolls about hitting anyone that touches it with fire. Its a weapon mechanic and works as intended and should not be removed.

    If you are aunable to deal with sentry guns in the middle of the map on turbine (spy sapping or uber will clear them) and the weapon issue maybe TF2 is not a game for you.

    Sniping on Balconies is the only thing you can do on 2Fort, removing that, what else is there?

    We don't ban weapons/taunts/playstyles unless they cause game-breaking glitches/can be used to exploit, so while agreeably annoying, the scotch shot will remain.

    Same goes for building in the middle of Turbine. Trust me; if we could remove mini sentries on harvest I would've vouched for that a long time ago.

    I have nearly 7000 hours in TF2 the scorch shot is a gun made by valve and the map you are complaining about is a map that is widely played for many many years.

    No one has problem some have made different versions of the same map but the middle is mostly the same

    It may have come from the community at the start but valve added it and have given it achievements making it apart of the game and have approved the mechanics of the weapon.

    If you hate the engineers building in the middle of turbine, then just use the direct hit as soldier or the loch n load as demo. Those are very easy ways to take out sentries if you can't sap as spy because there are to many enemies guarding the sentry.

    And honestly in my opinion, the scorch shot is very bad. The only people I see complaining about it are snipers, because of the annoying radius it has and the flinch you get while scoped in. Any time I'm a class other then sniper, 90% of the time I kill the pyros that use it. So it doesn't need to be removed. It's like saying ban "The Classic" because you can deal full bodyshot damage without scoping in.
