Project: Apollo

Day in and day out I play Pyro, Demoman, Heavy, and all the rest. I kill, but I often feel... as if I'm not credit to team. I extinguish my teammates and erect Dispensers... but it never feels like it's enough.

Therefore, I shall undertake a project. Project Apollo.

I shall only play Medic for thirty days. I shall record my findings. Many complain about the stress of the job, and maybe we can find the solutions. No Fire Axing, no Shotgun Heavying.

I hope not to journey on this expedition alone. Brethren, let our Mediguns' beams fly across Teufort. May we Kritz from the heights of Thundermountain! May All our teammates be Ubered, may each Pyro be overhealed, may our crossbow shots find both our enemies and our teammates.

If any of your decide to join me, take it seriously, even the tiniest bit of leeway may lead to the loss of a Medic.

Shall anyone join me, be diligent in your quest. YOU'LL NEVER FIND THE PONY REFERENCE, HERTZ AND WOMBAT MUAHAHAHA.

So yeah, let's do some Medicing! Maybe we'll be able to nail down what the problems concerning Medicing are and how to cope. Perhaps we can figure out how to win with a team of F2Ps at our disposal. Maybe we can, with enough experiences, think up some revolutionary new tactics.

Or we can make each other laugh with stories of failing and winning through healing. I dunno about you guys, but I'm going for a month. If you feel like it, here's a group for any extended Medicing you feel up to pursuing: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/Medicforamonth


Note: For myself, I'm excusing special events such as BEEP BOOP ROBOTS VS PIRATES. Make your own ruleset or whatever! But let's heal some people!

I am honored to be the first to take up this sacred title.

I swear by Apollo, the healer, Asclepius, Hygieia, and Panacea, and I take to witness all the gods, all the goddesses, to keep according to my ability and my judgment, the following Oath and agreement:
To consider dear to me, as my parents, him who taught me this art; to live in common with him and, if necessary, to share my goods with him; To look upon his children as my own brothers, to teach them this art; and that by my teaching, I will impart a knowledge of this art to my own sons, and to my teacher's sons, and to disciples bound by an indenture and oath according to the medical laws, and no others.
I will prescribe regimens for the good of my patients according to my ability and my judgment and never do harm to anyone.
I will not give a lethal drug to anyone if I am asked, nor will I advise such a plan; and similarly I will not give a woman a pessary to cause an abortion.
But I will preserve the purity of my life and my arts.
I will not cut for stone, even for patients in whom the disease is manifest; I will leave this operation to be performed by practitioners, specialists in this art.
In every house where I come I will enter only for the good of my patients, keeping myself far from all intentional ill-doing and all seduction and especially from the pleasures of love with women or with men, be they free or slaves.
All that may come to my knowledge in the exercise of my profession or in daily commerce with men, which ought not to be spread abroad, I will keep secret and will never reveal.
If I keep this oath faithfully, may I enjoy my life and practice my art, respected by all humanity and in all times; but if I swerve from it or violate it, may the reverse be my life.

Sounds like fun. I don't mind playing Medic anyways. I love the challenge of keeping people healed, while dodging enemy fire. It feels great when I know I made a difference in a fight, and terrible when I know my healing target wasted the health I gave.

Apollo is the Greek god of healing, among other things.
