@Vasiliy People rarely communicate in battle? I think you missed my point, or I phrased it incorrectly. I meant the people who I often see complaining about healing, or most anything in the game being op/broken? I don't see those people in the actual game. Indicating they aren't playing enough to give credit to such complaints.
As for healers, as I've said before. It doesn't take a team, or a squad to break up a healball. It helps for sure, but it ain't necessary. And I keep seeing how squads = instawin. The actual communication between us is nowhere near what I believe everyone thinks it is. Do we rely on healers? In a way, yeah. Literally everyone does. They're a required component in any serious fight.
Have I thought how hard it is for 8 random players to kill our healers? No, no I can't say I have. Now that you pose the question though, it really shouldn't be that hard. You think we win because of healers, and communication beyond in-game commands? No. We win because we've all been playing a while, and we're all decent or more than decent at the game. Sometimes we won't even have people in the squad be on comms, and if they are they're silent ftmp.
As for me personally relying on healers, I have the most time by far on destroyers and corvettes...neither of which "rely" on healing. I'm either dead, behind lines, or full health. There's no inbetween.
