The Demoman has been the main damage dealer in 6v6 and HL for over 7 years, but due to the damage ramp up, it is no longer possible. The Stickybomb Launcher is now only good for traps and the Granade Launcher isn't good enough to be used as the Demo's primary weapon to deal damage and to protect himself with, many high Division 6v6 teams are considering dropping their Demomen, high Division Demomen are switching to other classes and a lot of people are quitting TF2 because of this. This update has ruined the meta which took all these years to develop.
TF2 is 7 years old. It needs players to survive and people (new and old) won't stick around very long if the competitive scene is ruined like this. Valve is missing a marketing opportunity from all of this. TF2 is currently their 3rd most played game on Steam and it would be a shame just it were to lose its players because of its ruined comp scene. Just look at Dota 2 and CS:GO, both have great comp scenes and they are on the top 3 most played on Steam together with TF2. Valve could actually make money of Competitive TF2 in the same way they are doing it with Dota and CS and at the same time get more players into TF2.
Please undo the nerf, a lot of people are upset, especially competitive players who literally spent thousands of hours trying to get good only for comp to get ruined.
