Make overpressure only affect enemies

I suggest making the overpressure only affect enemies. I keep getting pushed off ledges by fatties on my team.

Might make it not push teammates with friendly fire off.

I'm not sure about that change, you can help teammates up to higher places, like I helped a sniper get on top of the bunker in the yard of ff_well. I also use it to push teammates out of danger, as a heavy I can take a lot of punishment, but an engineer can't so if I see a mirv coming or something and I'm next to an engineer, I can overpressure him away from the blast and take it myself.

Yeah, it has potential cool uses, but it can also be used for griefing, which is almost always worth avoiding, sadly.

I understand how it can be used for griefing, but so can a rocket, or a pipe, or a grenade, it's the slowest and most impractical form of griefing possible, bar maybe using a crowbar. The Heavy is slow and he needs to get right up close to a teammate to grief.

If someone wanted to grief, the best choice would be a soldier using the rocket launcher, long range with large explosions that can send teammates flying, and anyone who has been around FF pubs for a long time has probably been the victim of soldier griefing. I don't think the overpressure is a serious threat in that respect and it does have some potential cool uses that I believe shouldn't suffer because of that.

Good points. Maybe people just have to start treating HWs like a pipe trap. I'll think about this some more.

Yeah those are good points. You can really grief people with rockets too, and it's much easier to do.
