Classic question: "what is the most overpowered class in the game?" followed by everyone answering Heavy and/or Demoman. Well, it's now inverted.
I think the Pyro is the most underpowered class in the game. Has problems at dealing true damage unless you are in a really unfortunate position. Not hard to deal with from mid-range, Soldiers can easily run away and Demomen can easily tie (lol), sometimes he is really nothing but an anti-Spy tool or a kamikaze class.
Thank Zeus for mini-crits reflects and Flare Gun free crits, things that make him completely viable.
(Yes, I realize I'm exaggerating a lot here, most of these downsides hurts less frequently than what my text tried to imply).

Either pyro or engi. With 6s whitelist, it's easily engi. Otherwise, pyro.

But, Engineer is so common on 6v6. Only running the Jag as an unlock...

Ambassador alone makes this untrue.

Only because it stalls ubers without throwing away a life like the pyro does. Nobody ever hopes for the sentry to last or get real kills, it's just trying to waste as much of the enemy uber as possible.

rofl people saying Pyro, he's fine now that he has the Degreaser and all the pity crits Valve threw his way (flares, reflects, various others)

I would say Spy because of billions of counters to him, but Spycicle/Red-Tape/Enforcer exist. So it's probably Engie, because without the Gunslinger he requires way too much setup most of the time but there are situations where you should be running level 3s instead so yeah
My opinion is objective fact. If you disagree, well, you're wrong.

Yo yo yo 1 4 8 3 to the 3 6 to the 9, representing the ABQ. What up, ******!
Majora's Mask is overrated. People who agree: 25 (PM your opinion, good, or bad.)

He's only good in 1v1 and only at short-medium range, with no realistic methods to close the gap. If that isn't crippling, I don't know what is.
