Greetings lads. Today, after some hours of being annihilated by horde of archers, I start calculating dps of xbows and bows. Well, I take a middle-tiers weapons - Heavy Crossbow and Strong Bow (a common weapon, what archers using). First, lets take a look on damage - Heavy Crossbow with T2 bolts have 56p dmg, this weapon with 4 Reloading skill provide 3,2 secs while reloading. But if we looking at our model of bows... 24p dmg (also with T2 arrows) + 6 PD (I think its a common level of this skill what typical archer have) 24+60%=38,4... with reloading speed 1,3 secs and what we have here - 56 < 76,8... and ofc if xbowman have a good luck to reload and not being shoted. So why I just started this topic? Please, I demand some buff for xbows. Im also understand - xbows have a "Wound" effect, but it cant help u while shooting vs archer.

Ask Toxic for some lessons how to use xbow, he got more than 3 kd all time when he use it (some ppl also say that xbow is eazier to get kd so no need to any buff).

Crossbow is fine, it's bad against archers, mainly because archers are OP, but its very good against literally any other class. A buff would make it too fucking strong.

The only way to improve crossbows is to remove them along with bows and throwing weapons.
Another (alternative) way is to reduce the damage from arrows to the level of fist damage.

No idea if you are trolling but xbows are nerfed, bolt speed and bolt drop are insanely low, dmg too

Actually compared to the ones we had in CRPG, Mercs crossbows look cute in comparison. You know what I mean. Also I recently found out that crossbow is actually good in clanwars. Shoot the piker, wound him then watch him get devoured by 5 angry shielders who has piker PTSD flashbacks.

Think its more of a case that archer needs a nerf rather than xbow needing a buff.

Since you are dreaming of any rework, then I would suggest increasing the accuracy of the rifle (and reducing the damage *or not*), for a weapon for 100k gold it is rather inaccurate. I'm not good at physics and ballistics in general, but for some reason the arrows and bolts are flying like the shots of the Death Star, and the bullet behaves like it's a leaf in the wind.

Honestly i'd say Crossbows are at their strongest when you're fighting archers because you can hold the angles long term which means they're forcing to take quick pot shots at you

 

Crossbows can sure be frustrating but they certainly are in no need of a buff, they're the most fun class to play imo

Can you refrain from spewing your autism on the forums and just leave it for global chat thanks in advance
