It's Finally Time To Meet The Pyro

The Pyro. A man (or possibly woman) shrouded in mystery since Team Fortress 2 launched in 2007. We've gotten to know his compatriots. We've gotten to know lunch. Now it's time to Meet the Pyro, and it's an incredibly disturbing meeting indeed.

In some twisted corner in the back of my mind, this is exactly what I expected of the mysterious masked figure. That kinda makes it worse. Now we know its terrible secret: it thinks it's playing Diablo III.

Kudos to Valve for irreparably damaging the gameplay experience of every Pyro player in the world in one fell swoop.

    I think I'll he playing as the pyro from now on :D
    Now they need to add pyro vision into the game, that would be hilarious!

    Teacher just put that on in class. I found it equal parts hilarious and disturbing.

    "Kudos to Valve for irreparably damaging the gameplay experience of every Pyro player in the world in one fell swoop."
    Damaging? No.
    Vastly improving? YES.

    1:20 is utter nightmare fuel.

    Well done, Valve. Well done.

    Not as epic as Meet the Medic... but totally appropriate. Now I remember why I've played so much Pyro over the years...

      +1 for Meet the Medic

    Two big thumbs up Valve!!

    ...Did anyone else notice at 1:28, when he sees the Medic poking his head out of the box, he gives this little, surprised look of happyness, and his muffled voice sounds *disturbingly* like he said "How did you get out!? :D"

    ...He then puts the medic back in the box, and we cut away to the burn without ever seeing what happened in dreamland.

    ...There is inherent darkness, even in his happy land.

    Just brilliant. Actually sums up the Pyro players I know...

    Entire team is babies.

    That medic in the barn's fate scared me...

    The Pyromania page has been updated with Day 3's content (SPOILERS: Watch "Meet the "Pyro" first!):

      Oh god, that is so much win.

    the only problem with the video is that immediately after watching it I had no choice but to go rewatch the other meet the... videos. You really should have put a warning, video may cause procrastination label on.

    Totally worth the wait, I laughed the whole way through that.
