Does archery ruin the game if there are too many of them?



  • So yeah, my vote would be yes. Nothing is more annoying than an archer somehow running backwards throwing javelins at you while you fail to hit him.



  • And the topic has been done over and over. Can’t believe you posted archer as a bug in the bug reports section.

    I wouldn’t mind if the entire team was archers if they looked like this

  • If a team has way too many archers, that is easily countered by tons of melee, especially with smoke everywhere.

    So, no. The game doesn’t get ruined. Usually the team with the abnormal amount of archers loses by a landslide, because they don’t have enough melee to defend against a push.



  • 3-5 archers aint a problem, it’s when half a team consists of them. The problem is that most of them suck and can’t hit anything at all, they don’t even try to take out the enemy archers. Then again if there are some epic archers in a round even 6-7 of them in a team wouldn’t be a problem cause they’d kill most melee before they get close. Then again where do you find 6-7 good archers in the same team?



  • Yeah it is annoying but that’s no reason to say it ruins a game. Too many archers means poor teamwork, this is a team-based game.



  • Long sword + tower shield = so much murder.



  • Because its like having a team of 7 Snipers in TF2 and is incredibly poor team composition? Yes.
    Because of your reason? Absolutely not.

    So I voted no.

    As Xylvion said, maybe ONE of those Archers can aim. The rest are helping your team by creating a damage over time cloud on the enemy side. Even if two Archers were good and able to aim, one good Archer makes the other useless. Or at least substantially less effective.

    Basically: Be a man and go punch those archers in the face.

    The game does get ruined if your 1 of the few melee on the archer heavy team. All the archers sit back going pew pew and you get stuck trying to solo the objective.

    Apart from that one thing its all good.
