well..i'd say OP but I usually move around too much for BBpyros
so... it depends
seeing as how much pyro gets flamed for being OP it just seems typical

Thats the very reason I named my Backburner the "The Ragemaker" beacuse the all the crying makes it all the more fun.

But in all honesty I dont really consider it O.P even if I am on the other end of it. If I let a Pyro get up that close to me its my own fault.

I guess what annoys me about it is that like activley promotes W + M1
No AB so no M2 and its vast power mean you dont need the other weapons, so over all its basically encoraging W + M1 and it seems to me like a spy knife with longer than eyelander range, additional forward damage ( more so than normal melee weapons) and a bleed effect... Valve would never allow that...would they?? :)

Actually the BB more or less promotes ambushing and flanking which is what a Pyro is for, the majority of Pyro's I've met rely too heavily on the airblast and either goes rushing in or starts juggling people and thats where they get destroyed.
Also is encoraging W+M1 really that bad? At most times that is a sure suicide.

The way you describing it is sort of true but there are still two huge factors involved;
1. A Pyro cannot turn invisble and has to get into the right distance beause of the BB's short range.
2. Even with all that Pyro is screwed on long range so if let him come within range its your own fault for being burned. No matter the flamethrower.

Yeah... Valve would never do that, ever.

I grant the pyros description is Ambush, Fine. But if Ambush is the primary purpose of the BB then why the +15% dmg? I seem to remember the BB was buffed because people were finding that it was weaker than the normal flamethrower in front on combat, AND SO IT SHOULD BE lol
It seems to me that every single update has brought a new way to play a class, a way that you have to learn to play, prime example the gunslinger you cant play with the gunslinger the same way you play with the wrench, but the BB seems to make you regress to play with it remember when it was released the air blast was added aswel so people had to re-learn to use the Flametrower but had to forget things to use the BB, which personally I think is silly

backburner could be considered O.P.
As heavy i usually don't get backburned, but backburner pyros are actually pretty hard to find now.

LOL I understand your pain and I'm a pyro like 99% of the time on BLU team :U Damn BB users :iconfffplz: But it's not overpowered. It's just annoying. It would be overpowered if it has AB though.

It wasnt Op until the whole +15% damage buff, which just made no sense to me...

Well, gotta make sure your team Pyro's have AB to help you then, or run backwards and shoot at the pyro idk...

What annoys me most is that if you run away from the pyro he catches up with you and gets 100% crits, and if you run backwards away from him you move slower so he catches up with you and the +15% damage gets you, thankfully the gunslinger keeps 'em at bay for a while. But enought raging :D

Yeah, I totally understand, but like I said I'm a pyro all the time so I don't die as fast plus when I run away I AB them away and try to find a heavy to take him down for me XD

All I can say is Degreaser > BB, Degreaser eliminates W+ M1 and protects medics and team-mates as much as the normal flamethrower, so win win IMO...
But I guess everyone is entitled to there items, after all its war based hat simulator :D

The degreaser does less damage tho. And what's the point of slowly killing people with fire instead of doing it quicker?
