ghadilliMR_SLINI think it's also important to consider that nerfing the crossbow also nerfs Medics. Food for thought.
how so, friendo? it potentially hurts their ability to heal team mates at long range, but there have been a few suggestions itt that would help that
maybe i'm wrong, after all i'm just a publord, i don't know nothing about nothing, but just from theory crafting i don't see how nerfing or banning the xbow really hurts medic that much. soldier/demo, sure, but medic idk.
I can't say whether banning crossbow will nerf the medic a lot or a little, but think of it like this: crossbow increases the medic's maximum potential healing per second. Therefore, banning it will nerf the maximum hps potential of the medic.
Again, I recommend staying away from theorycrafting in this thread as that isn't within our direct control. Modifying the crossbow's stats would require us to either a) develop a promod (a bad idea) or b) influence Valve (hard to do). Thus, we only have two choices:
- Accept the crossbow as-is
- Ban it
