    The active way

    I couldn’t care if archer only fired foam bullets which go the distance of 2 metres. Any nerfs better than none at all though. They’re annoying pests.

    Well they are gonna be more of a pest. Look at the changes. What does that mean. Means archers can no longer kill each other easily. Why the hell bother shooting at other archers any more. Why use broadheads when bodkins have no downsides compared to broadheads. Why use the normal crossbow when its only advantage has now been made useless compared to the HCB.

    This is what happens when people don’t think.



  • I would rather have archers as moderate damage support than as some strange alternate sniping/countersniping game mode that takes place in parallel but intermittently spills over into the normal game to devastating effect.

    But that didn’t happen.

    It just made the HCB way more appealing.

    And HTK didn’t change for vanguards and MAA lol.



  • That’s why we need more dmg nerfs ^___^

    A focus on rewarding gamplay is a better solution. Not making archer less fun to play. That’s bad gameplay decisions.

    Slaughter the leg damage. Currently its 0.65. Bring it down to 0.25.

    Stamina drain from drawing bows and reloading crossbows. Meaning archers are at a disadvantage when they enter melee combat. Though make it only go down to 15. I don’t want to hear them huffing and puffing all the damn time.

    This means archer is still rewarding to play as while still reducing their effectiveness. Rather than nerfing it to oblivion so that no one plays it so it no longer annoys anyone.

    I just worked a 14 hour day. Here is my input. If archers choose to use heavy crossbow, everyone will votekick them and make the world a better place. Happy days. Fuck archers. Sling or shortbow or go home.

    Yes because that worked out so well for you last time.



  • I still think my idea of low damage, low ammunition count and better melee capabilities is a better idea for archers. This would make them somewhat of a MAA without dodge, slightly slower movement speed as well obviously. Which would make the game more focused on melee while not making archers completely useless.

    No that’s pretty much what you just did made archers completely useless.

    Unless you want to give them MAA primaries and more resistant to damage.

    No one used broad heads before unless it was lts anyway lol

    It’s much easier to take pot shots at defenseless melee then it was to get rid of other archers. Ever since the beggining of chiv bodkins were the preffered go to.

    Heavy crossbow is extremely slow in fire rate so I don’t mind it as much, it just needs it’s projectile speeds toned down and the ability to one shot knights removed.


  • Global Moderator

    Everyone used broadheads.



  • it’s kind of funny that archers are still going to be the most powerful class, watch.

    anyway, at least it’s something… long overdue for some damage nerfing. Other than the archer vs. archer thing, i mean most arrows are still going to put you within 1 shot of death anyway so while it’s at least some kind of nerf, still going to be very powerful ranged damage.

    The most powerful class is the one that scoreboard the most. They all top the scoreboard. But archer isn’t up there all that often.

    This is shitty qualitative reasoning. Keep spewing ad populum fallacies pls. More bullshit inaccurate logic is needed to balance.

    if archers are the best class how come teams with the most archers usually lose?
