Maybe its different over seas servers. As for rank 1-15 archers. Yes they hit you. But are far from being any good. In fact can mostly say any archer i verse doesnt get in the top 10 on the score board. If you let archers do what they want the will dominate.
the entire problem with archers is that a player with 0 hours played can kill a player with 2000 hours played, and there is nothing that the better player can do about it
Counter archer is easy. Zwei is easy. Shields are effective but still vulnerable to skilled archers. I love to counter arch with those 3.
zwei only counters archers if the archer is blindfolded and afk at the same time
Most will complain about archers. But most higher tier players will say they are annoying but would rather play with them. Rather then not
most higher tier players prefer to play with as few archers as possible
