    Like the other thread, this is a suggestion.

    For anyone (if anyone) who doesn't like Pipeline and doesn't feel like leaving the server I suggest playing medic, but with a twist.
    You seek out and attempt to kill everyone in sight while still being partially beneficial to your team, or not.
    Hence, you become something in the limbo between useless and useful. Very entertaining, even if you dislike the map.

    I teamed up with a Krieg Medic named Dr. House M.D.:fuckyou: And we got 26 points in one life, AND won all 3 CTF Caps in a single round.
    We fucking went 2 on 3 with Heavies.

    House, if you're out there, I've been looking everywhere for you, goddamnit.

    Fucking this. If you can do well as a battle medic you'd be doing better as a soldier or pyro or scout or any of the other fighting classes.

    Especially hate it when there's class restrictions and the only medic slot is taken up by a medic that doesn't heal. Well fuck your shit.

    Actually, the only job for the player is to have fun. If they have fun being a battle medic, let them be a battle medic. Boo hoo they're not doing what you want them to do, they're playing the game and having fun doing it.

    Any battle medic with a brain will heal and buff his teammates, it's just that instead of standing behind them, you fight beside them.

    They're also ruining it for everyone else since they're not healing their teammates causing them to die.

    If you are a medic then heal people. If you want to fight go another class because they are better at fighting than the medic. It's that simple.

    Wrong team. I'm causing the Enemies to die.

    And the Medic has his own flare to the Offensive position.

    I like making and editing particles rather than installing shitty skins, neon blue and bright pink were the next on my list of unused colors.

    I play medic like gamerkiwi explains. I heal and buff out of combat, and stop healing my patient and start needling by his side when enemies get near. guy in the video is meh, if he can melee decently he'd be better served by demo or scout.

    Oh my gosh THIS.

    Reminds me of my most rage inducing experience with a "Battle Medic"
    I remember when I was playing as a Demoman, I had 4points of health left and there was this "Battle Medic" (only one on the team by the way), infront of me shooting enemies with that almost useless needle gun of his. I was pressing "E" calling medic frantically trying to get this asshat's attention. BUT NOOOOOOO HE MUST SHOOT THE HEAVY THAT'S GOT A MEDIC DOING IT'S JOB SUPPORTING HIM. I'm trying to keep the cart in place (map was Goldrush) while dancing around rockets and grenades trying to get this dumbass "Battle Medic" to heal me.
    After 30 seconds of this crap I finally ate a rocket sandwich and that fucking jerk carried on shooting the heavy with no affect what so ever. After ignoring several other teammates and insisting on carrying on with his trued and failed method of pestering he got taken out by a Scout and that was that.

    I switched to Medic and did what this asshat couldn't do. HEAL AND HELP OTHER PLAYERS.

    Battle Medics can be useful if they do heal some and deploy ubercharges if they need it. As long as a medic heals but can also get some kills in battle mode I don't have a problem with it.

    Anyone who dislikes battle medics and think they should switch class are overlooking that fact that he is fucking GERMAN. He will THROW YOU IN A FUCKING GAS CHAMBER if you so much as disagree with him. And we all know he makes good stuff. Fuck yeah.

    Battle medics can be one of the most useful classes out there
    depending on the skill level of the player and if they know how to play it correctly
    Good Battle medics can get an uber charge insanely fast and uber their teammates causing a win
    i myself have done it many times and Ive just started using the Battle medic

    You do know what an arc is, right? If you do, the next step is figuring out what the needle's arc is, which takes about 5 seconds. If you actually hit your target, which is relatively easy, then you can kill them quickly.

    Personally, I don't really like battle medics. That isn't what they're put in the game for, and that's why other classes do the same thing, but better.

    lol
    good joke
    But seriously, It's crits are terrifying. It's a rain of death when it crits.
    But most people use the Blutsauger, because I would sacrifice crits for getaway any day.

    Why is everyone complaining about Medics that shoot or melee EVEN when there's a perfect situation and everyone nearby is overhealed?
    Also do you prefer seeing them as they run off the battlefield holding Medigun?
    Medics are not designed for combat, but god damn it he can't just stick to Medigun all the time!

    You know, TF2 isn't real life but in real-life Medics are soldiers first, medics last.

    (Or rather, 50/50)

    What I'm saying, A good medic in TF2 knows when to fight and when to heal

    If valve never wanted him to fight, he wouldn't have a gun and melee weapon and wouldn't have 2 upgrades that PROMOTE combat

    (+3 health, 25% uber on melee)

    Yes, because fighting is more important when there's a dying teammate next to you. Ayah, that makes sense.

    i'd like you to heal me when i'm playing heavy, on fire, with 5 HP left, spamming the medic button, and you're standing right next to me thinking your kill count is more important than healing people

    Edited:

    The only time I like battlemedics is when they're trying to get to a patient in need or when they're taking out enemies coming from behind
