You forgot activating an uber the instant their heal target begins to get peppered with long-range shots, or ANY inappropriate time.

Nothing annoys me more than Medics who don’t know when to use an Ubercharge.

Worse are the ones who don’t deploy until half a second after you die.

Same principle. If you died before it activated, the Medic didn’t know when to use it.

its pretty hard to do it at the right time, like you said better use than nothing right? did you also watch the medic’s health? sometimes the medic out of fear of wasting it will use it right away, or if foreseeing threats like hidden stickies, spies and especially snipers from afar.

EDIT: and yes, having a mic would actually help this better..

Having mained Medic for two years, I can definitely say that firing off your uber when you’re in danger is much better than dying with full uber.

Also, the number of times my uber target has died in the time between when I right-click and when the uber starts up is goddamned uncountable.

Of course I’m not suggesting that you should fire the uber only when the PATIENT is dying, I just mean that it infuriates me when a Sentry may be round the corner, and the Engineer who owns it is at the end of the corridor. He peppers me with shots that don’t even do 10 damage, and the Ubercharge goes up.

Seriously, you could at least wait until we’re in the Sentry’s line of sight to squeeze more time out of it. That said, of course the Medic’s survival is top priority, but when I’m the Medic, I generally wait until I’m at below 50% before activating it in self defense. As long as there’s no ambushing Pyro or Scout, a competent patient should be able to protect me from any other opposition anyway.

I should have also specified that firing off an uber when you’re not in the slightest bit of danger means you’re a ‘tard.

I would say it’s fun to watch incompetent Medics die horribly, but that means your team is without a Medic at all.

They stick to a Heavy and don’t heal anyone else.

They stand still for every enemy Sniper and Spy in the vicinity.

They don’t tank Sentries for their partners when the uber is up.

Etc, etc. In other words, they unintentionally do everything in their power to make themselves far less useful/credit to team.
