Because the farmability of an item that has no impact on balance should determine it being added to the game

I play Pybro quite often.

The ability is stupid. You should see the discussions we've had over at the Pyro subforum.

Whose bright idea was it to give Pyro an item to cover his ups?

Same reason the Enginner can cover his ups by removing the sapper himself.

This guy, who is either idling on 10 different accounts, or got Gaben free food at McDonalds for a year.

You're basically exchanging the Homewrecker for the Reserve Shooter instead of the Axtingusher. It's bad for the Pyro, you know.

Engineer isn't specifically designed from the ground up to stop Spy from doing anything.

Pyro is.

It didn't have Sapper removal on initial release.

Because apparantly they assumed a Pyro could single-handedly 2-shot a sentry before he dies.

Yeah, that doesn't happen. The sapper removal adds some utility.

I recognize that it adds some utility, but given that it's some stupid- utility, it should be replaced.

So they add Sapper removal.

Instead of the logical thing, like Sentry damage/knockback resistance?

You know, so its original purpose could be carried out?
