Let's move on to the Demo's ex-best friend - The Soldier.
What do you think of him? Overpowered? Fine?
I agree with pretty much everything ironraven24 said.
- Too much health
Again, slow speed to compensate.
- Too easy to play as (SHOOTTHEGROUND)
This I agree with. Nevertheless, as easy as he is to play, I've seen really bad soldiers who can't hit anyone, but they still manage to get kills from the splash damage. You do see good soldiers though, ones who can easily just juggle people to kill them without a sweat. Basically, if you're against a good Soldier like this, if you aren't a Heavy, Soldier or a Demo, you're screwed.
- Too easy to destroy buildings n shit
Not really, if it's only one. Engie can repair faster than Solly can damage.
- Almost invincible with a medic
Lolno. I try to avoid sticking with Soldiers as much as possible. Much prefer a good Demo or Heavy... or even a Pyro. Though this might be more to do with the lamentable skill level of Soldiers I've been seeing, pretty much since the War Update. Prior to that you had good Soldiers who were worth a damn.
