The whole revival system doesn't sit well with me right now.

1. Do you get "kills" for putting them in "near death"? It's still possible to finish them off (double-tapping), but the "killed by" tag being displayed after you decide to respawn bothers me.

2. Can anybody revive, or only people with Field Medicine? This doesn't bother me as much, but if you don't get kills for "near death", pairs of snipers would be nigh untouchable if the rest of the team can keep them somewhat isolated. I'd just feel better if only certain players would be able to revive (and that would set up more strategic team games to "protect the doctor").

3. It seems like it takes way too much damage to finish somebody off. Again, it goes back to #1 and 2.
Surely there's no problem with them putting me in Brawl, right?

There's this PC game with a very similar revive system...

I think it's Quake four but I really don't know for sure.
Anyways, in that game, you pretty much got the full point for downing a person once.

The skull and the other notifications (killing spree, headshot, etc) are displayed, so I assume these "kills" do count. Though I can't remember how it worked in Shared Stock.

Yes, there's a medal for double tapping.

I can see it now...

Nothing I could do there, there's like 3 enemies on me. Lemme switch my Loadout to counter their Tactics...
*1 second left before respawn is available
*Gets revived in the line of fire
*Dies again

I think I know how it works, you die and it says the person killed you, but you are laying on the ground to you can be revived. The only reason its there is to make it go faster so you dont need to respawn. Also, I think you can finish a downed enemy, but you dont get a kill for it as far as Ive seen. And I think anyone can revive and be revived, but feild metics can do it faster.

If you think it's futile, you can always press the "Give up" button to automatically die.

The revive system is pretty much a chance to respawn closer to the match. If they kill your downed self, then that chance to spawn closer is gone.

At least it beats the hell out of Second Chance in terms of less noobiness.

Keep in mind, it takes a while to revive someone, leaving your back exposed to enemy fire. It wouldn't be smart to revive someone unless you know the coast is clear. In the end, I'm pretty sure it all balances out.
