*With my Apologies* Hey guys, Apple here and welcome to another video! So recently, the Razorback was announced to be banned from UGC season 20 of highlander This has been on many sniper- and spymains’ mind, and it let me to thinking… Yes, I think he maybe actually is, but I don’t think that is equivalent of him being unbalanced. What i mean, is that the amount of good picks that he can get in one life is really high- -Compared to other classes. This is because he can’t stay behind his teammates, away from the action, while still doing significant damage. The reason why he is not used full-time on competitive 6s team though- Is because he is not very mobile, and a scout or soldier may be more useful, when pushing and covering flanks. Plus, they can actually tank some of the damage and play with the overheal the medic gives them. Though if this is the case, why do I think it’s overpowered? Well- It’s mostly because of one word: Reliabilty! In TF2 this is how different classes have been balanced out. You have classes who are generally useful. That specialize in direct force. These are normal classes like: Heavy, Soldier, Demo and Scout. Then we have the supported classes that fill out the rest of the needed tasks. And Spy n’ Sniper are both: PICK CLASSES They focus on taking down key targets, so the more tanky and less restricted classes can do the rest of the work. But the problem is that the spy has to backstab players, which means he has to actually get close to enemies. That is why a spy in 6s will only get one kill, and will only be chosen when you need to kill the medic. The problem is also that the sniper doesn’t have any concrete counters other than itself You may say, APPLE WHAT ABOUT SPY XD And this is exactly the problem. The razorback! The Razorback makes it so the sniper has to shoot the sniper to kill him, which is a problem since it takes more than one shot. And if the sniper places himself correctly, it can be really hard to not get killed in the process of killing the sniper. This is why the sniper is getting banned from UGC, and it kinda makes since actually. I asked some high skilled snipers about the ban and they said all the same thing: Because positioning will make the sniper a hard pick for the spy anyway, so… Sniper, don’t worry. It’s not the end of the world plus, it’s just a test, as UGC state themselves. Maybe the razorback is back, next season. I think the last thing to mention, is that the Sniper is NOT unbalanced because of this though. The Spy has other benefits. Like being a bigger distraction and of course having a sapper, which can help your teammates push and disable teleporters So those were my thoughts on the Razorback.
