Im new to this website so I apologize in advance if I mess something up making this thread since I was always just a spectator not really saying anything till now. Anyways I was wondering if there was ever a time in competitive TF2 where medic was not played at all and it would only be a 5v5 with solly scout and demo since I never really enjoyed playing medic cause hes mostly just heals and I would rather shoot people. If there was any recorded history of it what changes would be added to balance everything out, your opinion on what would happen to the game competitively if the class couldnt be played and would you still play comp if medic was not a thing.

Some people enjoy medic because there's always something to do, even during stalemates. Then again the med creates the stalemates with uber so.... lets just remove uber.

people would play even more like babies. spam/chip damage would be really strong to the point where you would almost never see actual fair fights. health pack territory would become more valuable to control a-la quake. pushing would be nearly impossible for some points.

so it's definitely possible to play competitively with no medics enjoyably, but not 5v5 and not 5cp. Bball and to some degree 2v2 MGE are probably the closest to something like this (bball improves on the basic premise by removing the other unnecessary classes)

No uber = average flick frag count per game drops to 1

If you don't want to play medic don't LFT medic. Nobody's forcing you to. If it's a pug just play once every ~6 games, take the L and play the next pug on a non medic class.

No point removing one of the most dynamic mechanics arguably in this game because of your personal preferences

Box conch waddle soldiers whipping a sandwich heavy, mad milk scouts... it would be very different.
