@the list of nerfs

You forgot the Ambassador, for a week it could headshot constantly.

It's so odd that sex is constantly restricted in the USA, but violence is okay. (In some contries, the situation is reversed.)

On another note, there is one Sniper nerf that significantly made them less powered: the loss of instant headshotting. The half-a-second delay wasn't always there.

Tomislav still does have instant spin up.

I remember when the Scout's FAN used to make the scout useful, instead of being actively worse than the default weapon in every single way.

"What is W-1?" - Suicide Pyros that charged headlong into any fight with mouse one pressed. No tactics, no skill, just a comparatively fast character that was hard to kill.

About the nerfs: When the game was released, a good Medic could ubercharge up to three people at the same time by switching heal targets quickly. - If you where defending Dustbowl and had a clan of four people on the enemy team every position was easily overrun by a single uber.

[url=#user_comment_67594]@Nap[/url]: In all honesty, Dead Ringer is still pretty abusive. Assuming you aren't lit on fire, a good spy can feign death several times over and never get caught. Picking us several kills in the process. Now I am not a good spy, but even I've managed to get this trick to work on occasion.

About the nerfs. Natacha had it bad. She was by far the most OP weapon in game and stayed that way for awhile.

Commenting on the comment about nerfs.

You could also bring up the dead ringer, start taunt killing, and the ringer would trigger and not cancel taunting.

Dead Herald

@<name here>: Because Tomislav is the first weapon the heavy has received that is "ZOMGOP!" Natascha was never really considered all that powerful. Sandvich was actually buffed, not nerfed. KGB is kind of situational, GRU let's heavy move faster but at the expense of punching damage...
<name here>
about 13 years ago
Can you really include the Tomislav when it was added in the patch that made TF2 free? I think it'd be slightly better if you had instead used the Natascha and how it used to have a perma-slow at any range.

The Sniper had plenty of minor nerfs to the way his rifle worked that made a major difference in higher level play. And the Huntsman used to hit people in the direction of the general continent they were standing on.

[url=#user_comment_67441]@daexmachinus[/url] Natascha was not originally designed for countering other Heavies, it was designed for those fleeing cowards such as Scouts and Medics. But I do agree, the slowdown decrease at longer ranges makes it totally useless.

"What [do] you think I play? Japanese games?"
Grammatical mistakes aside, the first thing that jumped to mind for this strip (and the previous) was 'Origins of the TF2 Pyro'.

Only problem with that theory, though, is Pyro's a bad-ass family man, not an axe-crazy nutcase.

The sniper rifle used to be able to instantly headshot after zooming and didn't have that delay after shooting.

You forgot the ambassador with its non stop head shot mini crits.

Also, the sanvich.

They nerfed the rocket launcher ammo to 20.

The equalizer was nerfed as well.

All the medical weapons(except the kritz)

The flare gun was buffed and nerfed so many times.

Ubersaw nerf was unnecessary. Bad Spies should be penalized like every other bad player, by becoming free uber. The better half of the nerf was disguised spies not giving medics free health and instant detection with the blutsauger.

[url=#user_comment_67444]@AnusShoes[/url]: There's only been 3 TF2 comics in the last 2 months. Jo's main game is TF2 and this comic was historically heavily focused on TF2. You're talking out of your ass.

Maybe you guys don't get that this strip was born as a TF2 comic strip. And later it turned into a general videogames-inspired comic strip: for the bettet, if I may add

Am I the only one who doesn't give a flying f*** about TF2? I don't mind TF2 comics when they're funny, but this is turning into a one-note "hey lookit my replays" and "this or that is OP" comic.
daexmachinus
about 13 years ago
As far as I know, the nerf for the Heavy was in the Natascha. It used to be slowdown but lower damage but also raising spin-up time? Now Natascha heavies have no chance against Minigun/Brass Beast/Tomislav Heavies.
Nixitur
about 13 years ago
As far as I know, the Tomislav didn't have instant spin-up. It was just 70% faster than the minigun. Unless Valve dun goofed and instead made it instant when it said "70% faster".

Way to get the demo nerfs completely wrong, bro. It was the Sco. Res. that had the early detonations, not the sticky launcher, and you forgot the biggest nerf, the fact that the sticky launcher didn't use to have falloff damage.
RaWR

His list left out the Natasha nerfs and how the FaN was nerfed to hell, their both alright now but they used to be godly. He also made me realize how all the new weps the sniper got (other than jarate) have been mostly useless, hopefully that changes when i get my hands on the new uber update rifle.

The same update that gave the backburner its +25 hp buff (the one it was introduced in) also made it do 100% damage along its entire range. So just getting brushed with it was like being caught right in front of the nozzle.
