New TF2 Update / Pyro Class gets more balanced
Written by Unknown and translated by Unknown on 30.07.2008 Time 02:37

Valve released a new Update for Team Fortress 2. The Kritzkrieg now works on No Crits-Servers, and players who killed themselves (like a Demoman being killed by himself through his own stickys) now give the last enemy player who damages them a point. Also, the popular exploit which allowed shooting rockets and grenades through walls has been fixed.
The most notable change in the update is the Backburner of the Pyro: The additional 50 HP has been removed. This change has been made due to criticism by the community about the unfair HP boost of the Pyro. The only thing left for the Backburner is his "Fire in the back" crit bonus.
