Spy-cicle no longer fireproofs?

So after the last update, the spy-cicle doesn't seem to fireproof for 2 seconds after being set on fire. It extinguishes, but it doesn't make you fireproof. If a pyro is near you and keeps the flame on you, it will extinguish but then you're immediately set back on fire making it useless unless you're hit by a flare that you can put out. Anyone else notice this? Is this unintentional?

Its not a nerf.

If they nerfed it, they should have just removed it because there would be no point in using it.

Yes, Valve broke the Spy-Cicle.

Shame.

Should be like that in the first place, but it should only extinguish you when you select it.
See pyro - shoot pyro - kill pyro - get flamed - switch to spy-cicle - gotta wait for spy-cicle to regen - live

My question is, how?

I mean, I don't recall reading any fixes for the Spycicle. They weren't updating it, or tweaking it, as far as the patch notes go. How do you randomly break an item, just by releasing an update?

And there is nothing wrong with the Spycicle, and never has been. It's the Dead Ringer that needs to be deleted from the game..

It did and does only extinguish you when you select it. But now if a pyro is near you, he'll just keep the flame on you till you die.

Spy-cicle is a stupid crutch weapon that is a direct upgrade in pubs.

If this was an intentional nerf, I'm okay with it. I'd have preferred the removal of Silent Killer but this will do just fine.
