RE: Ty for making archers totally immobile
Even if the sprinting was not originally intended for the archer, it was a valuable tactic to use for escaping, dodging and kiting. Archers are now at a considerable disadvantage, seeing now that archers have to rely mainly on close combat rather then their bow. This takes away the fundamental essence of the archer… if the devs are trying to make a realistic Medieval game, then are they suggesting that medieval archers never ran and drew their bows?
It is not even fathomable to believe archers stood still to attack an enemy. If archers are being rushed by melee units, they would run, and draw their bows to try and stop them. If you are telling me that the archer stood there and possibly walked while drawing the bow whilst the enemy was in hot pursuit; is utter BS.
Even if this was never suppose to be implemented in the game, the devs sat around for 10 months and allowed it to happen; allowed archers to get a feeling of false security for 10 months, only to strip it away and cripple the archer class. Archers are already disadvantaged enough, easily being taken down in 1 hit in some cases; they shouldn’t be crippled even more just because the community feels that there shouldn’t be any archers at all.
Not being able to sprint and draw your bow will FORCE archers to rely primarily on their melee skills. If this is the case, then why would anyone want to play archer? They might as well be man at arms with throwing knives, a shield and a short sword.
Did Legolas stand still when he shot his bow? Nuff said.
