Why not just elimiate ticks completely?  Instead of calculating the
total hp gain each tick, when a player is down in hp, you add an event
which will recover one hp after old-regen-per-tick/tick length of time.
If done properly, it isn't really much more processor intensive then
stock circle regens.  After you get used to not having ticks, playing
a game with ticks seems so primative.

If you want to see code for doing this, check out the Death Gate code
