I would consider every class that doesn't have to run away from a fight (Sniper and Spy) an offensive class. And that includes the engineer if played right (perhaps the only class that can also actually be considered defensive). In fact, I would rather take an engineer in to a 1v1 fight than a pyro. Always fun taking on overconfident heavys with that shotgun.

I'd say it's almost entirely down to how you use the class. Even with stereotypical defenders such as engineer, what Precizion said is right - they can still be used for offence. The number of times engineers have wrenched/shotgunned me when I'm playing scout is quite possibly more than the number of times I've been killed by their sentries.

A good offensive engineer can break the defending team. I love getting a sg up to bully the offence. I hate engineers that just place some teleporters in a nice safe place and put a sg to defend it and then sit aroung guarding it doing nothing.


Also I love Engineer on Arena, it is great!

I disagree with some of the pyro bashing....

Its one of my least played classes (around 3 hours or something - i dont mind playing any class tbh) and it used to be the most rubbish class in TFC, but now its become much more rounded and i think it works well on both offence and defence.

In offence sure you cant take out the sgs, but neither can a medic or scout (well you CAN with scout, but its not like being a demoman...) and when armed with the standard flamethrower (blowbacks against soldiers and throwing enemy medics around) and the uber axe, its a right pain in the arse once you have mastered quickly flaming someone and smacking them down since you are faster than most other classes.

In defence you're just setting everyone on fire and shredding 70hp or so over the duration they are alight and helping to defend your sgs against spy attacks. Also still being able to blast medics away from their uber target and push people off cap points is useful. I dont see why people bother with the backburner!? Smile

TFC pyro was only rubbish when you didn't know how to use it and it's hard to find out how to use the class accidently. It was a very quick class and could rocket incen grenade up to great heights without taking much damange. Also no need to reload rockets so good for spam.

On the topic of TF2, pyros can take out sgs in fact they are one of the most annoying classes to an engineers. The fact that they can simply circle strafe a level 3 sg and demolish it is very annoying. Also the fact that the flamethrower can be fired round corners where an sg is etc.... Also they are more effective for taking out sgs with an uber than heavies and soliders due to the the fact they can kill the engineers as well.

Backburner is useful when you don't expect a great deal of ubers to occur such as goldrush stage 3, cp 1. Just go around the enemy and come up from behind them when they are pushing for MANY kills.

I need to post less :p.

This requires good sentry placement to counter

Detonate a sticky or fire a soldier's rocket at uber pyro's feet, and laugh as the uber pyro gets launched into the air and gets rendered useless

On topic: i saw Precizion as Pyro and Binsky as scout a while ago. Had to double check the name and cross reference with the score sheet spelling while running several search engines over a distributed computing network, but it was them i tell you!
