Sad to see that DICE have to have a community mission in order for you to play your class properly. The amount of revives I've had last night was record breaking.

Here's an idea - while you may not get 500 scraps for your 100 revives, at least you'll help your team win.

    I would happily give some of my 20000 scraps for revives, maybe Dice could implement some kind of mechanic for that. You set it up and award 5 scraps for every revive you get as long as you stay alive for 5 seconds afterwards :P. That stops those revives where you die straight after.

    Scraps for squad play is quite possibly the greatest idea to promote team play that I’ve heard in a while.

    You just need to be more patient bro. I'd quite happily revive regardless of scraps. ;)

    I'm well with you on the Rambo revives, which can be sooo frustrating - especially if the enemy is spotted. Just wait a little longer, take the enemy out first, and then come revive me so we are both alive (as opposed to run at me with a syringe out only for us both to end up dead).

    And every medic will be a Rambo medic for scrap...

    It will do for some, but not every medic. I honestly don't give a hoot about scraps (not allowed to swear otherwise 'hoot' would be a word that rhymes with 'brit') ;)

    We could do with some way of letting medics know we are waiting for a revive. How does a medic know someone is willing to wait a few seconds for them to clear the area properly. Could do with a reply to the incoming medic message

    The abort revive should still be an option as it was in bf4,. Also I very rarely hang around waiting on a revive, if I can spawn back in faster than the time it takes for a medic to get me I do not wait around. I have probably annoyed quite a few medics with this attitude.

    A good medic won't rush in anyway. A good medic will clear the threat first. The only time a good medic will rush in without clearing the enemy is...

    a) they feel their death is inevitable anyway and they are unaware of other medics in the area. In that case the attempt at the revive might be worthwhile (they'll still die, but you might live).

    b) they can't deal with the threat (like a tank) but believe they have a window for you both to survive and get out of harms way - for example with the concealed rescue specialisation.

    If the player chooses to skip out whilst I'm clearing away the threat, then that's tough luck for them really.

    On the subject of revives I don’t think it should put you back to 100, 80 at best.

    I love getting Rambo revived lots of times I've rushed the player that killed me and killed them. Or get a nice koby grenade throw off and get several people lmao

    You mean not back to full health? Yeah, I kinda understand that logic. You just nearly died, should be some effect after the revive.

    I'd argue that's the edge case. Most of the time you end up still dead (due to the animations of being revived), as does the medic who ran in to revive you blindly, and then so does any hope of defending the flag etc. If they'd have killed the enemy first, then revived you'd have 2 more people on the flag and them 1 less. Instead you have 2 less and them 1 more (comparatively).

    Obviously sometimes someone gets a revive just as some other threat appears, a grenade from out of the blue etc, and those things can't be helped. But reviving me when there is an obvious enemy threat in the immediate proximity is just plain silly - Even more so if there are a few medics there who could combined can clear the area first and then safely revive any fallen teammates.

    This is true as well. I'd say in my case it's been about a 50-60% chance I live. Though Here lately I've been getting revive ls and shot back quite a ways from where I died. Several times I've died inside a house to a corner camper and then get revived and I'm back outside the house Lul. I get to relive the chance to get back at that corner decoration.

    What logic? There's only an opinion expressed by b2tchwood, no justification.

    It's fine as it is. There's my logic. :)

    I agree, it should be like it was in BF4. That was perfect.

    Don’t think he was referring to my post as logic, just the logic I was using.

    My opinion is that it can take some time to kill an enemy but an insta 100% reward for dying seems off. It’s quicker to get killed and get revived than receive med packs. I think 80 is a nice compromise. That way you still require multiple bullets to be killed again, you still need time to replenish health, but you have to be cautious to a degree until you are back at 100%
