I now realize I've been conditioned by years of TF2 to get excited by update notifications even after I've lost interest in the game itself

Makes me wonder why they didn't just code the entire Pyro update right now and ship it.

Some cheating phlog pyro tried the infinite uber exploit to stall the car last night on a Valve server. I was able to throw up a tele and telefrag him, lol.

Wait, I'm confused.
What exploit is this? I haven't seen it around.

Someone figured out how to extend the uber from the phlog taunt indefinately with a cheat program. bags have been using it to stall the cart on pubs. The only way to "fix" a pyro doing this is to telefrag them, due to the phlog taunt being immune to airblast.

Talk about cumbersome. I wonder if it packs any extra bells and whistles like the Ap-Sap.

Presuming that ubercharge exploit is in regards to Phlog Pyro's staying ubered till the end of a game or kicked from the server.

Had one of those on a casual match on koth nucleus and we ended up booting his off the server.

That's because the Phlog's ability is taunt activated, and taunts are canceled if you stop touching the ground.

Perhaps the could've coded it so that if the taunt is interrupted, the ability still triggers.
