I came across this video that, if you haven't seen it, may help you take your pyro game to the next level. I've begun to master a few of these tricks and they will make your team-mates laugh hysterically!

Now I am thinking about switching back to the normal flamethrower instead of the backburner.

I was playing in a server full of really good people, and I realized that how much a couple of pyros that really knew how to use a compression blast could unbalance the teams. Everytime someone would uber, they'd run in and compression blast them apart -- stopping the uber.

I was playing scout and these two punks were playing ping-pong with me using compression blasts(causing no damage but just keeping me in the air), while a engie literaly built a sg right under me that killed me! I was like .."WTF!"!

But keeping people off elevated capture points is where it really shines!

Yeah ever since they took the health bonus off the backburner it just made sense to use the normal thrower. As you mentioned the compression blast is so usefull. Which is funny because the pyro achievements are pretty worthless now, given the difficulty of most of them, at best the new guns are just gimmicks to mess around with.
