this is so retarded i have no words
first of all my IGN is john henry. only reason im posting in this thread is to point out how many people disrespect me through team killing, wounding, name calling, or attempted vote kicking.
i do well with archer and consistently kill people, this seems to anger them greatly and they resort to petty insults and tking to get revenge. this is completely unacceptable, i never disrespect people in game unless they really deserve it and even then i usually ignore them. it literally comes down to playing something well as intended and then being punished by childish morons as a result. it gets pretty old pretty fast and this happens fairly often, perhaps i should intentionally do worse to get the trolls off my back.
meh thats because ur a tryhard
archer is a gay class, get over it, its annoying to die by arrows or to be kited around
that said, Im playing archer only for like 10 days already, its pretty fun and you can get absurd KDRs while having people ragecharge you over and over and over again
but because i joke around with it and stuff, people never did anything to me or whatever
Pretty good patch, slightly buffed the longbow and the lightbow, slightly nerfed the warbow. Crossbows were the worst weapons and received the biggest buff now, so things should be way more even.
Wrong. You’re a coward’s class. Now go home.
Try to play it yourself before you judge,common slashspammer(not necessarily you siegfried). In my opinion, hiding behind a fancy platemail and a towershield is cowardly.
nah, the whole archery thing is pretty gay bro
I mean, I main archer (at least atm), but I know im a faggot for doing so, just come out of the closet you too
I can’t even imagine how many baddies I will be able to solo now, instead of eating a bunch of vanguards imma feast on whole armies.
giev patch pls
I was in this video :) I think i may have beat you scorewise!!! J/K I don’t remember
But you are a good shot. I play 3rd person though. =X
You and someone else came to the brazilian server and got shat on so hard both of you dropped archer x.x
btw nice video, anyone that was good in darkfall will be good in chivalry
leading a fireball is much harder than shooting whatever here
I’d say this is a bit of a contradicting statement. If it were as easy to hit people as you say, then “every archer possible” wouldn’t be terrible. It takes a lot of skill to play the archer effectively, through map awareness, positioning, and general ability to hit targets in an instant.
I can think of like 10 people in my last Clan in Darkfall Online that would have no problem being extremely effective as an archer. Our best player would no doubts maintain at least a 6+ KDR in public servers (mines probably around 4 to 5 this week).
Any new game is flooded with terrible players at start, then in the next months they either quit or force themselves to improve. I’ll probably start dying a lot more in the future, or at least I hope so.
For these reasons I think the archer and the War bow is in a good place right now.
The War Bow is much stronger than any other weapon in the archer class, that’s not even up for debate. So, if it really is balanced atm, all the other class weapons are consequently underpowered.
The archer class itself isn’t OP, what’s OP is just the warbow. With it, instead of being a support the archer turns into a ranged carry. On pubs you can get just as many kills as other classes, while barely dying (really, unless its FFA there’s no excuse for 10+ deaths).
The only reason people aren’t up in arms against it is that every archer possible is terrible. Like, as bad as it gets, I sometimes wonder if these guys are disabled or whatever. The arrow isn’t as slow as people make it out to be, the drop is barely noticeable and targets are pretty slow with momentum… so leading and predicting shots is not hard at all. Not to mention that in most maps you have infinite ammo to spam arrows around.
edit meant to post this in the other thread
8 versus 8
It’s just impossible to have anything close to a decent competitive scene with teams that big. The magic number is 5, anything less and it gets too selective and elitist, anything more and the number of teams will exponentially decrease.
? Black screen upon death.
? 100% Friendlyfire turned on.
? No thirdperson.
Yes, yes and yes. All no-brainers IMO.
? Making Arrowcam ability only for archers.
I think it should be completely disabled. The whole scouting around with arrows thingy is kinda silly.
? 50% rule to prevent each team from stacking some classes entirely. - (" I believe its still required cause of the fact that a 8 versus 8 team based with only knights as defender is really really hard to get past, unless the other 8 players goes knight aswel
? Class weapon restrictions
You can’t have competitive gameplay with that many artificial restrictions imposed to bandage huge imbalances in the game.
If the best team composition for some map is an all knights team, then there’s obvious design problems that should be looked at by the developers. Maps and classes should be optimized for 5v5 games, so that any class is as relevant as possible in all maps.
Other ideas (mostly by other forums members):
? Well known bugs and things obviously not working as intended should be forbidden. The machine gun javelin or the attack-combo-cancel-attack are clear examples.
? A set maximum ping, as animations and effects don’t match what actually happens when its too high. I think something around 150 could be a good number.
? No smurfing allowed.
Why do people even try to argue with Shara or Jest on this?
I mean, bringing up the whole X is “good when played properly” shit when you are discussing with some of the best players in the game is just moronic to say the least.
Not that it matters since Brazilian playerbase probably is just around ~1k players at best, but I’m hands down the best player here, no one can touch me either in duels or general pub score. Aaand I couldn’t agree more with pretty much everything they are saying, unless you are playing 32 player Arena FFA you are pretty much gimping yourself by playing vanguard.
I played all classes starting with Knight, then Vanguard, MAA and finally Archer.
When I got to MAA the game suddenly got a lot funnier, I was always pissed that I couldn’t do much when random bads swarmed me spamming M1, but with MAA ability to re-position and dictate the pace of fights, while at the same being able to burst targets really fast, I started killing whole groups of players by myself. The first time I won a 7v1 in Arena LTS was just amazing, and I would never be able to do that with any other class. It’s impossible to play it on high pings or packet loss though, can only play it on BR servers.
Archer was the last class I played because I just find it really gay, shooting people from far away and stuff. I imagined it would be really hard, considering almost every single archer in any server I played were just free kills. Some games later I was already pubstomping with the warbow. Now I play it 50/50 with MAA, usually go archer when I’m sleepy or not pumped up to play my best, because it’s just that easy. Never used the camera thingy, can barely fire at anyone that it’s somewhat far away, but still top scores with retarded KDRs.
It’s also the only class I can play well on NA servers with ~200 ping, as accuracy is based on prediction and there’s not much distortion and the likes from anything that isn’t melee.
