    My point was that it's irrelevant. Soldier's going to win simply because rocket spam becomes deadlier with more soldiers at a higher rate than nade spam becomes deadlier with more demos.

    EDIT: Oh, and counterpoint to your screenshot. :p

    Thankfully the Aussie servers are taking part but not that badly. In a game of 12-on-12 or so, there is an average of 5-7 soldiers and/or demos on each team so it's not affecting my playing as badly as it apparently is for other people.

    [Edit] But a lot of medics are still picking sides...

    I'm playing like I normally do, like I always go demo. So... in the end when I've gotten 203 soldier kills with a tally of about 500 kills altogether kinda shows how many "bad soldiers" have been attacking me :C I died alot more than usual, when 5 soldiers are firing rockets at your feet and you start being juggled uncontrollably, you've lost

    I've found myself compelled to disguise as a friendly demo and head out into the open with the Dead Ringer.

    I wonder why that is...

    I had some clarification from dario, it is the same weapon but the demoman wielding it enhances his playstyle far more than it enhances the soldiers.

    Go go team demoman!

    Isn't Dario heavily in favour of the Demomen anyway :p

    Using some pretty high-level mathematics (division), I've worked out that there are 8 spots for images at the bottom of http://www.teamfortress.com/war/part2/. This means there are 5 spots left, and it's 5 days till the update, which would imply weekend updates (!).

    This also makes sense in the context of the War update, no kill count updates over the weekend would be a bit nonsensical, and so would on Monday, there being a "Day 3" update.

    Of course I could be completely wrong and looking into it too much. We'll know tonight :O

    about 18 as demo and around 10 as soldier...

    So far I've been on a team of 7 soldiers so I went demo and found that we were up against around 6 demomen. Then TF2 crashes :(

    TF2 has crashed more since the WAR update than ever before.

    Demoman! The least-neutered of the classes, the one who can decimate an entire team if skilled enough, the one for whom my TFC play skill still carries over. As Shmitz said, a bad Soldier can defeat a bad Demoman, but a good Demoman can defeat a good Soldier everyone and everything.

    Besides, the Soldier is the generalist bread-and-butter class. If he gets a fourth unlockable, the entire TF2 balance of power could be ruined! :O

    I play spy a lot (174h) and i hate both demo and soldier for various reasons. But now I'm here to choose one so I'll pick the lesser of two evils: The Soldier.
    So far I've killed up to 96 demos...

    Demoman it is then.

    I concour.

    In a bath of contradictions, I too, concour.

    TEAM DEMOMENZ UNITE!
