Id agree with the statement of archers filling a more support role instead of a direct damage dealing role.The main argument I have for a buff in projectile speed is to fulfill that support role greater. The recurve was supposed to have a faster projectile speed that the longbow(which it didwhen the game launched). Its trade off was fire speed and velocity for damage. The long bow has received 2 buffs to its projectile speed so currently it outweighs the recurve in performance atm.

Id consider myself a decent archer, one a little above average but there is some maps where you have to get dangerously close to the melee action to even get off a shot.

I had a match earlier with a recurve where I was 14/6/36 I received both the achievements of 30+ assists and 10 headshots in 1 match but to pull this off, I had to be within 25-30 ft of enemies at times just to land that many shots accurately.

Well Longbow is supposed to be a better overall bow if we just look at the 2 compared, given that longbow costs 11 pts. The thing with the Recurve is it is nearly half the price, so you can afford to be closer to the engagement. The best way to use recurve imo is to maximize your melee effectiveness instead of adding things like ranger/huntsman because the longbow is just going to outperform you in this realm.

Use the recurve more like a skirmisher melee/archer hybrid than pure archer. If you want to be purely sniping and stuff the longbow and crossbow are going to be better choices. Recurve's main niche is you can be closer to the fight with better armor/melee and better mobility (you can half-sprint while reloading and drawing Recurve), so you should be getting closer to the fight to be effective with it. Recurve's dmg comes from landing a lot of shots quickly, which is going to be much more feasible the closer you are.

I try to sit right outside of spear range when I can. The longer shots are mostly harassment so they dont just sit there. When they start coming to fight is when the real dmg is going to start happening.

On another note, when I say "buff your melee effectiveness instead of archery" I do not mean putting on full armor and using a cheap gimp-ass weapon. You're going to be better off investing in a good melee weapon with armor as a secondary focus. I'd say keep it 4pts or higher for your melee otherwise youre wasting the point of recurve. My favorites thus far are 110/020 (your choice) with Maul and Friendly, and 120 Messer Huntsman/Friendly (you can give up huntsman if you wish)

Bows.

I've grown to hate those more than I hate freaking horses. Dying during an intense melee fight to some coward with arrows that wasn't even in your LOS feels terribly wrong.
I don't get angry in games but I really want to slap Mordhau bow users.

I dont think a high level player showing himself doing good with a weapon against average players is highlighting anything.

Every one of those clips were from competitive matches.

Not trying to suck my own dick here but I am telling you that if you buff archers they will break the game. The primary point of archers is to soften the enemy up for their team's melee, or finish off people who try to go heal. Landing damage before a fight begins can completely fuck that whole engagement for them.

Longbow and Crossbow are decent at getting kills but Recurve is 100% geared towards the support job, and this is fine. 4 shots to kill with a good rate of fire at 6 pts is very strong since unlike Longbow you can gear yourself up for melee as well and not just be a fairy. Recurve is basically made for you to be a Chiv MAA class but with a bow (I dont mean dodge, I just mean the role of light infantry).

Buffing Recurve any more would make Crossbow and Longbow completely fucking useless. Recurve used to be dogshit but it is very good now.

EDIT: went through your post in more detail and saw you wanted it to be 5pts and weaker dmg but honestly this would make it worthless again. It used to be 5htk previously and it was garbage to employ. 5htk is on the tier of rocks without much in redeeming quality. You could say the redeeming quality would be that it is cheap, but honestly at that point just use throwables and go full melee. Recurve is actually good now at doing something without being broken and I don't think it is in need of any changes whatsoever now. The absolute most I would agree with is projectile speed being faster but even then it's going to start encroaching on the Longbow/Xbow territory with a better overall DPS.

Recurve is fine and godly if you are good.

This is not parry preventing block animation. This is lack of developers to morph animation sequences . Dont believe of this bullshits. They cannot morph parry to random animation and they lie that they lock every animation after parry. This is not input lag guys. I tested it. The true is that Triternion are nothink more than money grabbers.

The fuck

Tested it last night and found that the held block mode for heater/kite blocks arrows in a full 180 arc around you no matter where you aim vertically. You can look at the sky and block legshots and vice versa. Meaning the archers would basically have to get behind you to shoot you. Get a friend to test it with you if you don't believe me.

So does this help you kill the annoying archers? Not really since they can just run but you basically are invulnerable to them unless you're in the middle of a fight using the shield normally.

Could also throw a smokepot but yeah I mean 64p servers and big maps are going to make everything in the game 10x as much cancer than it objectively is.

The duell scenes at the start, the one in the Camp spawnzone and the one in the arena were quite entertaining, but for the rest I have to admit that I still don't get the point of those kinds of videos. Just picking out the best scenes is rather boring and doesn't really show much.

Besides that, does the video name have any deeper meaning, or is it just same old badass kiddy nonsense again?

The point of the video is to watch it the fuck are you on about
