Wut? You talked about the massive use of 2handed weapons... Whatever. I guess I get your point.

Most, if not all, 2handers or polearmers during HH in siege

 

If you mean this part, it clearly says that "most OF THE 2handers or polearmers" not "most ARE 2handers or polearmers".

 

Hence your confusion.

Make a rack of shields at the start of every map, the players, no matter their class, can take on of the shields, but it cant be taken advantage of because it is not that strong, but will help against archers. this way all players can have some form of defense from archers without having to piss about switching to a shielder.

 

Genious.

By the way, that's how the heraldic version is going to look:

The idea is to allow all players to keep this weak shield in their inventory and use it if there's a problem with enemy archers. Even if players don't want to buy it, they are going to get it as loot. :)

What about the nordic board shield that is made of loose planks from native? I don't know the quality of the model but a shield made of planks would fit the idea of a weak cheap shield quite well I think. Although the coloured ones are good too I admit.

Are you talking about those shields?
tableau_shield_round_5.giftableau_shield_kite_1.gif

Yes, I can add them too. Actually, I can add them (or one of them) right now but they are too weak and you wouldn't be able to pick it up from the ground (because the clients wouldn't be updated). Also, they look very cheap and I doubt they are going to be widespread. The new heraldic shield looks nice and it doesn't make characters look like peasants.

Yeah the round one is the one I was referring to. They would fit a peasant or free shield quite nicely I think.

We should remove crosshairs! Would require archers to get some skillz! Beeing archer now is way easy!

 

Either that or give arrows a % chance to harmlessly bounce off armors, depending on range / armor quality / bow poundage.

 

I also think it should be impossible for anyone using a heavy bow such as a longbow to reloading while running. Force the archer to stand still while drawing the weapon, and move around alot more slowly while the weapon is drawn!

 

Also Vintroth ruels! Wööp!

You can just load the arrow, jump and shoot the person chasing you in the face.

 

 

Hardly useless.
