I suppose you must play without the crosshair all the time in chivalry.
Dang, you get me !
Yeah, I see your point.
With my idea, I’m afraid people would have to… TRAIN !
Anyway, that’s the idea. People complain about sniper and stuff. Maybe that’s because TB did take them by the hand and put them a big aiming device in the middle of the screen ? Putting away the crosshair would have archery to rely on instinct, memory and stuff usefull. Not some Call of duty skillz.
I mostly desagree with your nerf ideas. Actual bow are “good”. Crossbow however need a serious nerf about overall speed. (Bolt speed, reload speed, movement speed…).
The only idea I like about what you propose is the stamina drain for keeping the bow draw. Especially if it replace the actuel system that’s really frustrating =/
I’d rather have to watch over my stamina than over a time limit that random.
One nerf nobodies ever think about is simply to disable the crosshair for both bow and crossbow.
I’ve never really play the game with highiest graphism. Was middle, without blur effect. My FPS were between 40 min and 70 max. (Citadel was the worst map for my computer).
Then TB did an update that was claiming some optimisation about graphism and stuff. Now my FPS are between 15 et 45… And I drop de config to the lower possible, without any change.
Don’t see what you did there…
TL;DR “Archers are balanced because I miss most of my shots.”
“Archer need nerf because I don’t know how to use shield, flee, or use cover”.
Like to see people complaining about archery. “iou just ave to shot end iou kil miiii =’(”.
Yeah, sure, say that to the 10 arrows that were missed because, by some miracle, you can use your brain to command your finger to move your characters, because of passive shield that get a hitbox bigger than the knight or maa wielding it, or simply because arrow love to be immaterial… (but “that’s an issues that come on every onligne game and that can’t be fixed”… huhuhu)
Sure, arrows and bolt (mostly bolt) deals massive damage. But unfortunately, you have to be skilled enough to hit a target with it. You can’t hit multiple target. People can easily dodge it or block it with the ultimate turbo insta barrel roll on one feet. Damn it, majority of people that actually get killed by an arrow are unlucky guys running straigh to an arrow on the lose. (and allies, they love to cover ennemies with their bodies).
Plus, bow and Xbow already had two nerf with the speed projectile. Even if heavy Xbow is still insta laser projectile speed, I can see people avoiding arrow at the very last moment… Wich is pretty impressive and annoying. You can’t dodge a freaking maul that slow as your mother ass when she woke up, but you can run faster than an arrow (however, not from a bolt… But if a bolt missed you, the shooter is just lame !).
I don’t think bow need a nerf. Xbow yes (range, speed or power, I don’t care, I just hate those noobish toys and want to see them burn).
However, what should be nerf are something like the crosshair, that makes de games way to easy…
Give us back AoC time, when archers need skill. Without a stupid cross to show where to shot.
Broadhead should be illegal and punished by death too.
As the title said.
I bind my key, put left move on “Q” (Azerty keyboard), moved feint to A. (so there no other action that use Q).
And I can’t freaking move on the left ! I tried to change the binding, but that’s not working.
Funny fact, I bind a key to log on admin on my serv’, but the binding doesn’t apply right. Noooo. It goes on the key I put to move left.
Archers : Warbow + Bodkin arrow. (go to hell Broadhead).
MAA : Fist and random projectile.
King : Fist (or ragequit)
Vanguard and Knight : Yurk. Will never use those.
No crosshair (even if I don’t play them)
Cross hairs should never have been allowed in Chiv in the first place. This is true of 3rd person as well….
That should be wrote in some holy books. In Bold. And with some electrical sign, to be sure no one miss it.
Hope your video will inspire some archers out there !
(crosshair is evil)
