Heavy vs. Pyro

Announced with the Meet Your Match Update was the Heavy vs. Pyro war. As mentioned on Page 2 of the update, Heavy and Pyro were fighting for which class would be the first to receive a class-specific pack in a future update that would bring new rebalances, weapons, achievements, and more. Upon launching the game after the July 7th, 2016 Patch, players were able to pick a side in the main menu. Scoring points as any class in either Casual Mode or Competitive Mode would count towards the player's "vote", whose total accumulation represented by a percentage for each side. The event started on July 7th, and concluded on August 14th 11:59 PM.

At the conclusion of the event, Team Pyro won with 56% of the total votes while Team Heavy received 44%, thus guaranteeing the first class pack to pertain to Pyro.
