Reduce AP cost for using Doctor in TB
« on: January 14, 2019, 14:44 »
I can sympathize with the idea of carrying a doctor bag around in TB but the idea of simply saying "Hey, we want ALL your action points" is plain stupid and got me killed a couple of times now and it is starting to piss me off.

Allow me to reflect a scenario for better understanding:
-Solo Cathedral
-Get crippled in the right arm by an unaimed laser shot early in lvl 3 (not good)
-lose one whole turn equipping doctor bag and finding cover
-lose another whole turn to fix the arm
-I am back in the fight but it's too late I am surrounded by 2 gatlings and they decide to hex me because of pathing and poor game desing choices

Great fun was had.

PS:

And think about the current PvP meta in TB, crippling with almost each shot. It basically tells you to die if you get crippled.

Ye, it could be changed to let say 10 ap / use.

I would changed it this way:
Doctor bag/First aid kit in hand the cost of use FA/DOC in tb would be cost = Round down (Max APs/2)
And first aid max would be 150 instead of max skill because you are in combat.
Without doctor bag/first aid kit it would take all APs to heal/doc.

So actual cost would be:
Char max AP divided by 2

14->7
15->7
16->8

why was there even made a requirement to need doctors bag in offhand to doc yourself in tb+all ap´s? FA costs you all your ap´s and heals you for 150 max in tb unless you got medical implant but even that=WHY?

+1 to the suggestion

It needs to be adjusted and using all AP is a bit an overkill.
