    On the other hand, if a second or two of stun can break your entire push, your team is doing something wrong. I don't think the Uber needs the nerf, but I've no pity for a team that depends so much on two people.

    Nahh, they'll probably save the juiciest info until later. I'm betting on a new Community Map today.

    It's not about a stun breaking the push. It's about introduction of a mechanic which takes control away from the player in a skill vs skill based game. This is never a smart thing to do.

    Ah, I thought you were talking specifically about the Uber.

    It'd be a bad idea if the mechanic was easy to use, difficult to dodge, or more debilitating than outright death (e.g. hitscan, area-effect, rapid-fire, or a minute-long stun). As much emphasis as Valve places on testing, though, I'm sure they've managed to work out the major balance issues.

    I'm curious what they are going to do about sentry guns. They said one of their goals was to make scout more playable on A/D maps where sentries are plentiful

    sentries are the natural Scout counter, though

    I hope they don't make scouts too strong.

    Indeed. :p

    Any word to whether it's going to be a new, final version of Watchtower, or is it going to be similar to b3?
