Poll: Archer damage reduction



  • Seems to be popular nowadays. Assuming there are going to be no major rework of archers, such as special damage types to reduce damage against armored opponents - do you support a significant reduction in archer damage.

    In general that is, really just talking about bows and crossbows (not slings or javelins).



  • 50% reduction for legs and torso dmg and give flinch back is a good compromise for the all the archers wanting flinch back



  • wheres the reduce dmg by 100% option?



  • Give flinch back? Aww, hell naw!


  • Mod

    Greatly reduce damage and only add flinch back if it’s fixed by only flinching you in windup and not aimpunching you at all if you’re hit in release (obviously no flinch out of parry or flinch in release or anything silly).

    Only the light crossbow needs a damage reduction.

    Reducing the damage by 1% severely changes HTK lol.

    Pretty sure that’s the point.

    Edit: And every bow needs its damage reduced or it needs to be much, much harder to aim/hit players, either one.

    How about make it much more punishing so when they end up in melee they are at a disadvantage.

    Stamina drain while drawing bows.

    And decrease all leg damage by 50%.



  • Nerfing archers for combat is not fun if you are an archer in melee - just means they will run and you will have to chase them around the map.

    In general I do not see an issue with reducing damage with the archer, it will still be a fun class, I find most of the joy is landing hits, not necessarily a high kill rate.

    The only downside is that rage against your own teams archers will be higher in pub TO matches. As it is there are a lot of people who kill plenty and then use up their low TK percentage on their own archers who are under-performing.

    Funny thought given that - healing arrows ! lol

    So an aimbotter does good with archer. Whoopdedo we should totally balance archers around hackers.

    Maybe you have the lowest kill rate as an archer supporting no nerfs but the rank 45+ I encounter have high kill rates in pubs, I would expect 30% comes from melee.
