Why cant you see how much health percent an enemy has when you mouse over him? Its not going to help you or anything, just sometimes I wish I could see out of curiosity... -.-

You mean when you're dead/spectating?

no..he meant when fighting enemies.

i'd like to see a green bar on teammates as well, it'd be better than to try to read the number.

Yeah, when fighting.

I dont know, I just find myself wanting to know sometimes after being killed and I feel they should have been as well.

I support this idea. It would make it easier to distinguish who needs health for defending the flag, etc.

the bar over teammates has already been suggested in the old forums - but i'd definitely want it!  Health of enemy?  no, realistically you can only tell how much 'health' someone has by the way he looks - or in soldat, how blood-covered he is.
Can't think of anything original to put here...

No only for thirty seconds. Hey, wait a second..... even in inf_Fortress and inf_Zappalin (where you get tons of fuel) you don't get thirty seconds! That sort of makes sense! Then again, it shouldn't be able to recharge.

I disagree with this notion of seeing the enemies' health. It keeps it more secretive and keeps a feeling of separation from your enemies, like you don't have access to any of their intelligence.

I agree with putting a health bar above your teammates rather than having to put your crosshair on them and then being given a percentage in dark grey. You should always see their health, it would put even more strategy, knowing instantly how alive they are.
