    Just wondering, cuz it takes longer to kill someone with a damn low dps, and this is currently forcing players to switch to Dragon's Fury. Well Pyro's still be the best damage dealer like before (Flamehtrowers done more damage in dps and damage spread until this crappy update appears... and still be because, obviously the dragon's fury basically is very OP but fun to use cuz of its fast rate of firing singleshots loaded with full damage vs burning players).
    And airblast still horrible, and I miss doing combos as pyro.
    Your thoughts?

    I've barely noticed any changes, damage is a little lower - that's all.

    Airblast is much better than it previously was.

    To my understanding, the more flames you dump on someone the higher the afterburn damage is

    So if you flame someone a lot they'll take a lot more afterburn damage

    They didn't kill the flamethrower, they killed any other class's hopes of winning against it.

    I play pyro alot. Like 90% of the time. I have noticed I can't just run into a room and light everyone up anymore. I used to do this towards the end of a round on payload. You have to keep your crosshair on a target to sustain any damage. Just waving your fire wand around all over does nothing. Spy checking also is more difficult. If your a player who runs into a room and just sprays everything really fast you will notice a change. If your a skilled pyro who focuses on your kill then you will not notice much of a difference.

    I think the change is awesome!
