Why would anybody find it fun to play a class whose entire purpose is to follow someone around with the right mouse button held down while he does everything?
During the one session I played of that game I was a medic for a significant proportion of the time. It wasn't that bad, but still probably not as fun. It's nice to feel like you're helping, though. I guess it probably comes into its own when you're in a clan and there's ORGANIZATION and such.
Hah. Whatevs, chum. I do not doubt for one second that a heavy weapons fellow would be better backed up by another heavy weapons fellow. Not only does it double the effective amount of health without having to rely on a squishy little friend, it also doubles the firepower.
Anyway, I always like such classes as scouts. I remember in Day of Defeat (the first one) I was consistently top of the scoreboard with the scout fellow because he was the best class in the game but he wasn't a sniper so nobody else wanted to pick him. Secretly, they never realised he was as good at sniping as a sniper, didn't have to use the scope, was faster, had a more powerful gun with a better rate of fire and basically there was no reason to be any other character. When someone would ask how I, an absolutely godawful CS player*, managed to achieve such scores over actual good players who didn't suck at CS, I'd say something like 'I use the scout; he's the best class because of the reasons listed above.' It didn't seem to sink in, though.
Of course, the German version was a lot worse, but he was still the best German class. If I recall, his gun was a bit better for sniping but fired very slowly and was possibly slightly less powerful. That game was probably the only one I was ever good at, and then it got upstaged by DoD2, at which I was only moderately skilled. Now I'm bad at every single game.*I don't think I was actually that bad at CS actually. Whenever a new map was introduced I'd usually come first, plant/defuse the bomb, or whatever else had to be done. But after a while the maps that got played were narrowed down to Dust, Dust2, Cobble and Office and every other person knew them inside out.
Anyway, enough of my whining about how I suck at games. I think I'm just about done here. I was going to say to Kupo that I have a legitimate version of the Orange Box but no working computer, but I couldn't make it sound like anything other than a proposition for sex and potential children so I gave up and mentioned it like this instead. Laters folks.
