Never stick around for mvp, would rather requeue asap.

I play all three healer types on the Republic side, and my scoundrel gets more votes by far, and my sage the least by far. On my commando, if I'm spewing the green beam of "come kill me I'm a healer and this is how to find me" I get votes for clearly being bold.

But I find myself shorting sages on votes quite often when I don't actually see them healing when I'm playing my tank or dps for the simple reason that most often when I do find them they are fluffing their numbers with noble sacrifice and healing themself. To a lesser extent I don't rewared the ones that are casting salvation and begging people to fight on the aoe spot. Sorry, but I'm not going to stand there in the current class distribution of warzones and get roflsmashed by a combination of 5 marauders and/or juggernauts in less than one tick of that salvation aoe.

I reward the healers that are in the right place at the right time healing the right people, not the ones by themselves in a corner healing themselves, or healing themself for most of their total. That's not to say sometimes healing yourself is exactly what you should do. i.e Like if have half the opposing team of baddies on you away from an objective or facing the wrong way so your team can ninja it when they're being stupid.

As someone who plays all the healers, I almost always give my vote to anyone who puts forth even a moderate effort at producing protection points, whether its guarding me, someone else, or simply taunting. I often vote for what I want to reward and encourage (good play)

I agree. I am full healing sage 31 points in Seer. I LOVE healing all WZ battles and always get top heals by far and many times I get ZERO votes. I realize guild mates or friends plan on voting for eachother regardless of who deserves the votes but to not give votes to top healers is demoralizing. Us healers stick together and know the importance of our job on the battlefield and its too bad many PVPers take us for granted. A jedi seeks no praise LOL but throw us a wookie cookie once in a while....

I was surprised yesterday while i was on my low level guardian and i got 3 mvp votes, while the 2 great healers we had [for their levels] only got one vote each, one of them being from me . I myself normally play healer, so i always tend to vote for the top healer [or second best, depending on who healed me more, or if im the top healer], or if someone guarded my healer for a while, ill give my vote to them

Guess some overlap was bound to happen eventually

If they do see your name in green healing spam,and you saved their carcass,they will vote you MVP.Newbie players tend not to vote healers MVP,because they really don't understand WZ's yet---some of them think WZ's are team-death match.But veteran players will vote for you.

This, exactly. While on average, I tend to get several MVP votes per match for healing, it all depends on the team & the situation.
