I would like to agree with your last paragraph. I’ve always seen medics more fit for being a role within every regiment. Purely my opinion now holds that a regiment for medics just doesn’t work as that’s why I wanted the 9th Medical Corps to step down into Relief Corps, we didn’t feel like a regiment and I couldn’t say anything like 9th on me as we were always needed across the whole team.
As I’ve said I believe regimental medics would fair better with the Medtech class, especially since they’re receiving more and again it’d be locked behind a cert which I have stated I am still down to do as head med.
Plus another statement as 9th Relief Corps we have always had the notion of as we are specialists in being combat medics we get first dibs on medical RP, we still trained for medical RP, it’s not that there wasn’t any. It’s that it is hard to do in an event where there are 19 people who want to shoot guns and 1 person wanting to do MedRP with only 1 GM. It is hard.
That’s why I believe it’d be best to move into a regiment that is specialised into something else like EOD or Assault or whatever as there can still be medics, we still would have a medical discord to train with, do RP and there would still be medic training and cert training every now and then.
I don’t feel as if losing 9th will be in any way a loss. I think personally it can only be good, for Everfall, for the community, for the regiment and for myself.
I’ve run many regiments in my time of SWRP and I’ve always found having medical as a separate thing that people can get started for or trained separately within their own regiment is nice, it works better since everyone can still stay within their regiments in events and training. Plus doing this training for medical actually brings the community a bit closer together and there still will be the crossover for other regiments since formed training everyone from any regiment will be pulled together where they can RP together and it’d be nice.
Plus what Jelly says is true, most people just want to be in action and get as many kills or see as much action or get as much loot as they can. People don’t wanna stay dead for too long, there are some that will and it is appreciated.
I hope people can see where I am coming from.
