Last night, several of the usual squad mates logged on and we decided to go back to the regular maps and conquest from Firestorm. Immediately we loved the large volume of action over Firestorm and we enjoyed actually winning a game again. Then we noticed, where were the medics?
Our entire squad was playing assualt class. When dropped, normally you can see the distance of team medics, but there wasn't any. It seemed that the other squads stuck together and picked each other up and when needing bandages, got them at the medical crates at the flags. It really seems there is very no interest in playing a medic.
With all the fixes and new maps, etc. I wonder if the medic class was just given up on. Every other class has several weapon types to choose from. Snipers get bolt action and self loading rifles, support get heavy, medium machine guns and shot guns, and assualt class gets assualt rifles and semi auto rifles. Medics only seem to get one choice and its the sub machine gun.
Did all the medics from BF1 just give up on the class like I did because it's a worthless class?
