    Suggestion name: Companion's Health Indicator.

    What gamemode is it for: MCI.

    What does your suggestion do: When you face your companion right next to it's name it will show their health .

    Pros of your suggestion: You will be able to know if your companion is low on health or not (wich will help you in many occasions) .

    Cons of your suggestion: None I can think.

    Example of how it could look in game: A heart similar to the <3 one will appear right next to your companion's name + a number indicating it' health.

    Other information: None.

    I think that would make managing a companion too easy. Part of the skill of maintaining a companion in my opinion is keeping track of its health, and weighing your options based on that. The problem with ideas like these is that they gather support easily since they benefit everyone. Not saying that this is a bad idea, I just don't think its a good one.

    Companions can be easily killed plus they are always targeted. With a health indicator it would be much easier to manage your companions in game. This should've been in the game since the companion's update.

    That's what I just said. Managing your companion shouldn't be easy. It should be difficult to maximize the efficiency of your companion

    Good idea, Why haven't I thought of this before. Anyway I don't think this well be implemented. As @Rod337 said, humans don't need more buffs.

    I wouldn't really call this a buff as much as something helpful. From my experience no one keeps track down to the heart how much health their companion has. I think that adding this wouldn't really affect gameplay since it could benefit both infected and humans as infected could also see how much health a companion has left. I think that this would be great for gameplay and should definitely be added

    I think the suggestion is so that the owner of the pet can see the health, not infected. Anyways, when would an infected get close enough to see the health of the pet? Probably smarter to just start attacking.

    It does. Infecteds are op and I know it's hard to balance a game but we just don't have a chance of surviving against players like Tacos, Vext and etc. If you can consider this a buff like hypris said most of the players wouldn't keep track at it's health.

    Why not just have a notification in chat when the companion gets hit that says 'Your Compainion has *this much* health left'?

    Easier than having to keep looking at your companion, and easier when you're tanking and don't get a chance to look at your companion.

    Who pays attention to the chat? Seriously honest question. Plus with scorestreak messages (that you can disable), player's messages and etc.

    Because if your companion gets poisoned, withered, or catches on fire, prepare for spam. I honestly don't think infected are overpowered. Remember that the developers have a complicated algorithm that keeps track of how long a match should be, depending on the wins/losses of humans and some other stuff. Trust me, they are keeping track of these numbers. Mci is pretty ballanced
