Status: Whitelisted since 1 april 2011.

Let me rephrase. Just so I understand, it shows the Patty's health after everyone is dead?

But, what's the point if we're all dead? Why not make one where we can see his health while the game is still going instead of when we have "game over?"

That probably removes the purpose of being commando on the final wave. Not to mention if his HP is say, 100, your team isn't going to hide and cower like normal. It's a bit of an advantage knowing his HP constantly compared to being alone and scared he has too much.

Not to mention, if we had to update his HP every second chat spam would occur trying to keep up.

It's better if we just keep it after everyone dies so we all can go, "Aw man we were so close!" than "He's low on HP! Get him!"

Yeah it kind of frustrates me sometimes when after 3 heals you are the only one left and get killed. It would've been nice in those times to see how close you actually were to winning.

@Noboty:
Of course as HVR1 said, it's a big advantage to see his health.
Look my video around 9m10 in the kf-offices, I am finishing the patriarch with ak while he's about to heal up.

Didn't you never asked, "Damn! were close to finish him?" That's the point lol

It always bother me because the patty seem invincible(suicidal 6-man) after finishing 3 syringes of heal and you're the only one left of your squad.

I've been waiting for something like this to get made. It's frustrating to wipe on the Patriarch without even knowing how close you were to killing the :IS2:. I see no reason for this not to be whitelisted.
