I come across to this mod circa 2018 winter and back then, the eu 1 server including hh didnt have that much archer and cav. It's boring to get hs by players that I don't even know if they are cheating or not in a mod that I rarely enter to get some golds during pandemic. For this reason, if you open a server with no cav where only melee weapons can be used and also maps suitable for this can be played, it's would be good for the players who have the same thoughts as me.

i voted with no. If there is an melee only server only super tryhards will join them and the already low number of players will split and makes even lesser fun than before. Yes the archer fest is annoying very often atm but without the freedom of choice and a second server mercs wont have much of a playerbase afterwards. It willcome to an end somedays but its not necessary to speed things up while many enjoy it for now.

I voted yes because the beautiful thing about opening a server like that is that no one MUST join it but everyone CAN. In other words, if people want it they’ll play, if not, it’ll just die.

Worth a shot imo, because feck archers

I can't see anyone enjoying it but the terminator archers. At least you can set an archer limit on the eu1(could be full day or in a period of time like hh) or can open an another server with an archer limitation.

It would be a mistake to compare Mercenaries with the crpg era because there is a player mass, population and newcomers difference every now and then and would be wrong support this thesis too as long as people are still attempt FT as infantry.

There has been an numerous petitions and almost a decade old constant rant and request for Homer to add class limit, at least on archer part and Homer made his mind about not changing it, nor forcing people to play a specific class. I am not saying adding a class limit is a bad idea, overall mercenaries experience would benefit greatly from it, but Homer refused to do so even when he was somewhat active and he is the only person who is able to make any kind of limitation to specific class.

On the part regarding new melee only server, I do not think its worth dividing the mercenaries player base even more as it is. Warband prime days are over even when bannerlord multilayer turned to be a total trash, which can be seen with huge lack of new players (even that in my eyes warband is superior compared to bannerlord in every way but graphics, but that could just be heavy nostalgia on my part as I started playing warband decade ago and haven't touched it for years). Mercenaries always had archer and cavalry problem. Almost whole team was made of cavalry during specific maps, and almost entirety of team was made archers during happy hour. So it is not a new problem, but an ongoing issue which will never be solved, as creating server to divide community even more would bring more issues than what it's worth.

Then again, people claim archer spam when there's five of thirty playing archers if they are any good.

On that note, you are free to host a server and disable ranged weapons and cavalry, but it won't get gold gain considering it requires Homers approval

Having 30 archers on when the server 50 is enough to claim archer spam. Doesn't matter if they good or not.

Apart from the good points made regarding the division of the player base, there is also the problem of balance; namely, its potential of rendering cavalry too powerful due to it getting to have virtually unlimited freedom of movement around the battlefield, rendering the outcome of the battle dependent mostly -perhaps entirely- on which side has the better cavalry for the side with superior cavalry would be able to simply surround the enemy with no risk, as opposed to risking getting shot by archers as is currently the case.
