Also funny story, some pyro was spamming his airblast while i was a soldier, I was coming up on his side, shot a rocket, another pyro/demo were charging him from the front, the pyro caught my rocket in his airblast spam and effectively killed both my team mates XD
I think this pyro must have been super pro, since it's pretty hard to just spam the airblast and reflect things, there's a fairly narrow window for reflection.

Hey, I never said that they never use it, I just said that they don't use it regularly enough to make them still keep it even after a massive nerf
But the thing is, they do. I dunno what it's like in European servers, but Pyros and the airblast are actually a major annoyance down under.
From a minicrit?None.Although my sixth sense tells me that there will be a lot more airblast spamming in the future...
The extra 35% damage, and without falloff means that a reflected rocket will nearly kill a soldier at full health, and a couple of shotgun blast should suffice to finish the job. And it more than does the job against demos if you're good at reflecting pipes.
Also, funniest thing is ever is when you get a demo to blow themselves up with their own stickies.
