    In the developers' commentary on TF2, they go to great lengths to explain how the ├╝bercharge was used to create emotional highpoints on a game that has no storyline.

    Seems like the "overhealer" could not measure up to the dramatic effects of ubercharge; as a big fan of TF2, I'm glad this change didn't make it past playtesting. Specially because the Medic is one of my favourite characters.

    I just wish they would put some of the effort they are putting into TF2 updates into porting Day of Defeat Source to the Orange Box engine and getting some more maps out for it! (plenty of rumours but little substance at the minute).

    I knew that medic changes were in the works. I did not know that this was the change they were talking about. I am glad it was scrapped.

    I hope the additions are well thought out. Major game changes like this can very bad if not done right. People get used to a gameplay type just to have it changed completely. I can understand trying to keep nit fresh though. Considering I bought OB mostly for EP2 and Portal, it is nice to see that TF2 is still getting as much support as it is. It is an insanely fun game.
