What's good, Heisters?
We’d like to say “Thank you” to everyone who participated in our Design Contest for the Russian Medic. We received a stunning total of 36 different Russian Medics, which definitely gave us a hard time boiling them down to 5 finalists. But the day has finally come, it is time for you to vote!

How do I vote?
All you need to cast your vote is a steam account and 1 minute of your time. Simply go to our website, check out the 5 finalists, click them to see the full group of enemies, and vote!
Community Voting: The Russian Medic

How long do I have?
We decided to not waste any more time and, therefore, close the vote already next Tuesday, the 25th of September 2018 at 12:00 PM GMT+1.
