To which I respond…
No we’re not.
Kill them before they hurt you.
Focus their healers, send them to the graveyard 1st, make them wish they hadn’t joined the BG too.
A long time ago Gnomeaggedon joined the circle of healers meme. People thought it was novel, a joke, but I was DEADLY serious.
You don’t need healers to win a BG, you just need to make sure the enemy has none.
This was highlighted on the weekend and began with comments just like the title of this post.
A short time later, I had capped for the 3rd time and the enemy team never got out of the graveyard I was slowfalling over each time with the flag.
Healers are overrated.
Sure they help, but if you aren’t playing PvP as if healers didn’t exist, you probably deserve to die.
Don’t get me wrong, I love my BG healers.
As I said on twitter:..
3 things I have learned in WSG:
- Healers love Mage food
- Healers love Flag Carriers
- Healers love Mage food providing Flag Carriers.
But I don’t rely on their existence. I play knowing the only thing between me and death is me… then grin an evil grin when I discover I am getting heals.
Protect ‘em if you got ‘em!
Ohhh and speaking of healers.
I’ve mentioned this add-on before and Cynwise has an excellent post on the ethics of it.
What you need to know is, not only will it show you enemy healers, but it will also show you friendly healers as well.
There are two things you need to do:
Turn the options on.
Turn on enemy AND friendly name plates
Gnomer and Out!
