I almost never had time to pocket medic. I was usually a mobile dispenser. AND YEAH. I tried to spy-check with my needler as often as I could, but it was pretty rough. I actually, once, ended up healing an enemy spy, he dropped disguise too early, then I needled him to death. IT WAS GREAT AND I KNOW A FLUKE OF THEIR BAD PLAY.
I’ve mentioned it before but the way I spycheck almost all of the time as a medic is mostly just watching the players. If they fire their weapon, they’re not a spy. I always do courtesy weapon fire when I’m another class too, esp around medics.
The needle gun is great and all but in active gameplay moments you don’t usually/always have to stop healing someone to see if someone else is a spy. Saves you time and keeps you healing more effectively.
Playing pyro should give you a pretty good eye for when people are acting weird, too.
ngl as a medic if someone’s going to be a shitlord I don’t mind ditching them. I wont spawncamp and if they’re just going to overextend me and get me killed over and over, I feel no guilt about letting them run to their doom and going to find someone else.
playing medic will at least ensure that you’ll probably learn to be a good medic BUDDY. The easiest way for me to tell that I’m on a team of shitlords when I’m playing scout is when I end up with a pocket medic BECAUSE IM LEGIT THEIR BEST OPTION
There was one game in the Viaduct where I spent most of my time attached to a demo, because everyone else would sprint off into a hail of rockets. ALSO THE WORST ARE SCOUTS, SORRY. THEY’RE ALL MEDIC, HELP ME OH I’LL RUN OFF AT 50% HEALTH, FORGET YOU CAN’T KEEP UP, THEN CRY FOR MORE HEALING.
Scouts are butts.
laughs that is exactly my point. A scout SHOULD NOT HAVE A POCKET MEDIC.
If I’m playing scout, and the medic is pocketing me, how bad does the REST OF MY TEAM HAVE TO BE. It’s happened three times now where I dont just have a medic paying attention to me, I have them on me (as a scout) for minutes at a time, nonstop.
When that happens i’m just like “no one else on this team but me and the current medic have EVER PLAYED MEDIC BEFORE thats the only explanation.” Medic has to do so much looking out for himself but it REALLY HELPS if teammates are at least aware that you’re back there.
Otherwise its STOP HEALING THAT HEAVY SO THAT YOU CAN GET THE SPY TRYING TO GET YOU, HEAVY PLEASE STOP SHOUTING AT ME YOU’RE OVERHEALED IM BUSY TRYING TO TAKE CARE OF SOMETHING BECAUSE YOU DONT KNOW HOW TURN YOUR MOUSE BRB
My brother was just talking to me about how terrible The Last of Us is. Apparently he’s been playing with the game muted. I don’t.
I just don’t.
And now he’s pissed because he “worked so hard” to get up the building only to have the game make him fall down the elevator shaft. He just doesn’t understand… things.
Okay i am TOTALLY WITH YOU on the confusion for how he’s treating the last of us but
#HE WAS ANGRY THE OTHER WEEK #BECAUSE THE HEARTLESS DONT GO AWAY IN KH #AFTER YOU SEAL THE KEYHOLE #I DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH HIM
I wasnt ever angry about it or anything but i ALWAYS WONDERED WHY THE HEARTLESS DIDNT STOP RESPAWNING AFTER YOU SEAL THE KEYHOLES I STILL WONDER IT IT DOESNT MAKE SENSE TO ME THAT THEY KEEP SHOWING UP LAUGHS IM SORRY TO BE IN THE SAME BOAT AS YOUR BROTHER BUT I DID/DO THINK THAT WAS WEIRD
Last year’s winter was just so full of ice that it killed TWO of my young trees. They just spent so long with a solid half inch (and some days more) of ice around every bit of them that they couldnt make it through the winter, and I was terribly, terribly sad about it. (Okay, I’m still sad about it. My trees!!!)
but two more babies popped up in my yard, I’m so happy about it. I moved one a bit away from the house but they’re so wee and little and there’s one for each of my trees that didn’t make it. I’m all catface and full of affection at having two pop up without any prompting or attempt on my part they’re just “hey, we heard you were sad about your missing trees and we are here to help.”
