The Thrills and Spills of playing the medic class ...


 
 

The Medic ..


 
 The medic thinks ...

Now since i started playing Team Fortress 2 i picked the Medic class . Its what i seem to do in class based shooters . I have this drive to play the class that supports the other players .  

Maybe it is becuase both my parents are doctors ? 
 
...maybe not as they are Doctors in clinical psychology 
 
But anyway i always play medics in some form or another . Team Fortress 2 has the most satiying medic class in any game i have played .  
 

THE GOOD

 
- You get points for not how many kills you get but how well you heal your team 
- The medic has some fairly good weapons . The bone saw is a fucking lance in the right hands 
- Your fast and can move and the battlefield very quick 
- I AM ZE UBVERMENSCH ! 
 

THE BAD

 
- You are a massive target everyone on the enemy team will shoot at YOU  
- Its a thankless job . Your team mates will shout for a medic but not protect you if things go south . Also if anything bad happens its the medics fault . 
- SCOUTS !!!!! They are THE most annoying thing in competitive TF2 play . They are like ninjas and always , always kill you even with a pocket soldier sitting with you 
- No communication . If pople dont have headsets then your job is made about 5 million times ahrder . People think that medics and here their thoughts . 
 
 
These are just a few things that make the medics such a joy and a pain to play . 
 
now here are some tf2 screenshots of me being a medic 
 








350 hours as medic ...and Ive never looked back :D

i play medic also, not 350 hours purely due to it doesn't work at uni so i can only play TF2 when i am home. When i play, very few people use headsets and i don't really mind i just watch for the medic shouts, which are frequent enough for me.

I like to support people and tried the medic for awhile but couldn't get into it so i went for Heavy instead its kinda supporting people but  your always one of the first people to die, well in my experience anyway.

The Medic is my most played class on Team Fortress 2 and one of my favourite classes as well, although I know the medic is often seen as the "lame" class in a lot of games I've had a blast playing the TF2 Medic. I've played nowhere near 350 hours with the class though, but when I play another class I always thank the Medic for healing me.

I play medic when I ring for teams or I'm pugging on TF2Lobby
 
I love playing the medic,like it was said on CommFT youtube channel,the medic is like the quaterback, he controls the flow of battle.
 
Also,dropping an uber is the WORST thing ever.
 
 We should play sometime :)

They were fun to play back in the day (Don't know if they have been patched, but I doubt it) 
What I would do to level up as a Medic in Resistance 2 was have one of m friends blow up a car and then stand in the fire while I was healing him.  
Then after a long time the fire would finally go away so we just moved on to the next car in the parking lot =D 
 
Good times

I'm more a fan of the Pyro, simply because I can spray people with fire and spam the mic with, "BURN BURN BURN!!! * evil laughter*" That, of course, is assuming I play the game, which I don't.

Think it is time to update. 
 
Having played medic far longer than previously started in this thread ( about 1000 hours of  medic) I have to say one thing .   
 
Love your medic or he wont love you back :P

Nice bump. Yeah, I love my black bunny ears.

I never liked playing as the Medic. Heavy, Sniper and Pyro have always been my go-to classes.

I love medic. He's one of the most vulnerable, but also one of the most powerful classes. I lurve him so.
