    Well, as a demoman my weapon usage is about 60/40% remote/pipe (last 28 days, only server I play on). So I'm glad they didn't nerf stickies. Critical stickies are almost a garuanteed kill because of the insane damage and the perfect timing :). It's also a great tool to push the line forward, because nobody likes standing on stickybombs.

    I don't quite understand this. I seem to die frequently when hitting someone at point blank range with grenades.

    Although, I've had instances where I'm at point blank range and my grenades seem to just ignore the heavy standing in front of me.

    I should really not play while wearing my "objects may appear more to the left or right than they actually are" glasses.

    I think this is refering more to a glitch. From the sound of the bug fix it sounds like a demo man could have stood right up against a wall and started firing grenades, and he would not take friendly damage from them when they exploded. SO if he was in a group of enemies he could of run to a wall, started shooting and lived.

    No, I've encountered that glitch -- shot a grenade at point-blank range into a pyro: lots of pyro gibs, but it didn't hurt me at all (whereas usually it does, and should).

    I think that only happened when you were REALLY close. Like touching the enemy and sticking the launcher in his body.
