My basic strategy was just "Uber the heavy, rush in. Total chaos, and take everything out."
Now its changed to: "Uber the Demoman, have him sticky everything in sight, and KABOOM before uber runs out and dies"
Lately, the Demo-man has had huge success.
I can agree that the Heavy is pretty useless by himself for the most part, he gets hit a lot and is slow to get to the closest medpack, but I'll strongly disagree with him being useless when he has the Medic on him. The Heavy tanks like a bitch unless a crit comes flying, takes out sentries just fine depending on the situation or placement, takes care of most people he gets the jump on, etc. I will say he's situational but most of the classes in TF2 are with the exception of Soldiers, Demoman and Medics.
