    It's the return of the afterburn! Introducing the Flash Fryer, the Pyre of Wild Fire! The Napoleon of Napalm, the Arsonist Assassin! The Sultan of Scorch, the Talent with the Torch! Deranged at close range, the white-hot knight to ignite the fight! PYRO!


    And in the other corner... The Defiant Giant! The Beast From the East! The Towering Hulk with Overpowering Bulk! He's a Communist maniFISTo, the Red Son with the One-Ton Minigun! HEAVY!


    Two men enter! One man leaves! Followed shortly after by the other man, also leaving!


    But! Even though both of those men will be allowed to leave, and both will be unharmed, and there will have been no real consequences as a result of them entering, and they may actually go on to be dear friends, only one of them will get a future Class Update!


    But! Okay, both of them might get new Class Updates at some point. In fact, it's highly likely they both will.


    But! Only one of them will get it first. Click here to find out how to make your vote count in the biggest election of the year, the epic showdown of The Maestro of Maim versus the The Thrower of Flame! Heavy versus Pyro!


    Oh, and new taunts, new crates, a whole crapload of game balances and a bunch of other stuff.


    Plus, now you can celebrate your anticipatory pre-victory (or pre-commemorate your assumed defeat) with official Meet Your Match merch!

    Why only balance Pyro OR Heavy? Both classes need a rework.

    Right, but this lets the community directly say which they want a rework for more. Or at least, which they'd like new toys for more.

    And as the comic says, they can only do one class at once. (or they should only do one class at once, making an entire new weapon set is a MASSIVE deal for balancing. (Coincidently Blizzard said after releasing a bunch of heroes at once that it was a mistake and they want to do it one at a time from now on)

    Pluuuussss this gives the community that valued "think up cool new items for both classes" time. The community will think up a ton of ideas for both classes (and others I'm sure) and Valve will pick what they like from that. Doing it this way allows them to add a huge amount of brainstorming power to their design team

    I'm probably going to end up siding with Heavy, Heavy really needs some new weapons and balancing.

    Still hoping for some much needed performance improvements in the changelog, as well as the ton of bug fixes. Matchmaking and balance changes are nice and all, it's not nice when you can't run the game properly to enjoy them.

    Also hoping that we won't have to wait like 6 months again for these balance changes. Preferable the winner of the war in September and the loser with Smissmass.

    Minmode viewmodels look interesting. Like a middle ground between cl_first_person_uses_world_model (or viewmodels off) and stock. The CS series has a number of cvars to very finely control viewmodel positioning, this sounds like a single cvar though. Could be neat.

    Screw the new 'respectfully disagree' button, we need 'Team Heavy' and 'Team Heavy' buttons.

    EDIT: Are people disagreeing with the joke about the disagree button, or the two 'Team Heavy' options!?

    Vote this post "Like" for team Pyro and "Respectfully disagree" if you're wrong.

    I'm really not sure what team to pick, to be honest.
