    What exactly was the rationale for the recent Engineer rework?

    I mean, sure, people didn't like turrets, but you could have easily just reworked, replaced, or nerfed them and only them. Now that they're gone, the balance of the entire game has been turned on its head.

    Turrets were basically the one counter for Ninja, and by removing them entirely, you've buffed Ninja beyond belief.

    And besides, Turrets can easily be removed by just killing the Engie who placed it. A good Archer should have no problem with this.

    A simple fix for Turrets would have been to give them Entity Properties (Health instead of a block), allowing ranged classes like Mage, Archer, and Pyro to make quick work of it.

    Also, why are Cakes and Teleporters gone? I don't see any problems with those. Cakes are very useful, especially on teams where Medics are nowhere to be found and there are 50 Million Ninjas (basically your average CTF team).

    Engie2 is a great class that seems very fun to play as (Who doesn't love TNT?), but it just doesn't feel like Engie. The only building they have is the Speed Pad, which is lame and boring. Change my mind.

    All in all, I just feel like the new changes ruin both the spirit of the class and the balancing of the game. If anyone has any possible reasons for them, please let me know.

    From what I've gathered, the new engineer design was made with the competitive scene in mind. As in, the design was made to legalize the use of engineer in competitive matches while simultaneously making the class more enjoyable to play (so people would actually use it after the rework).

    As for how ninja fits into all of this, well, ninja was actually slightly nerfed in the recent update as flash bombs no longer cause blindness.

    Yeah, I guess all that makes sense.

    When I was talking about Ninja, I was more referring to invisibility, as turrets could hit invisible Ninjas.

    Only the engineer mains which camp and the ninja targeters would dislike this rework.
