Rico you should try to play cav when there were so many xbows on the server, all you could do was to hide somewhere and when you tried to kill someone he could one shoot you with arb :P

Oh right, you are cav and complain about ranged, nice luxury problems :D

I am noob cav, but even I can backstab 1 guy who isn't aware of me every round, then my horse dies somehow and I use my average melee skills with my only-slightly-worse-than-the-average-infantry-guy dismounted-cav-character to get my second kill, and boom, I'm an average player who just killed 2 average players for no other reason than paying 2,014 gold upkeep once every three rounds off my 10 million gold stash I accumulated in light armor on DTV and through trading on the marketplace, but it's not so bad cuz I get valor for couchlancing that archer who scored two headshots the round before, so chances are I won't have to scam another noob on the market again for another while

friendly reminder that in a better world, a 2:1 KD means you are a solid player and not just another average joe on a horse

don't get me wrong, ranged players have an unfair advantage over infantry by game design as well because they get their ranged weapons and they still a get melee weapon on top. at least I feel like ranged players need to commit their builds more to being ranged than a cav guy who only pays riding skill and upkeep, but he can just choose to spawn without a horse and still be a decent foot soldier if he wishes to

also I'll never understand why people rage when they get shot but they're perfectly fine with being stabbed in the back by a lance from horseback. they should calmly accept both and bring a light shield and 1 slot boar spear that anyone can equip, or if they refuse to use the slots available to them and absolutely ask to get shot and couchlanced, they should at least complain equally about both and not only about getting shot

but you know, that all said, I still don't ask for a cav nerf in 3 different places 5 times a day and make a meme out of "OP couchlance no counterplay lul" and rally my homies to hop on the bandwagon. I just patiently wait till the global gold amount decreases and cav becomes more expensive to play. I stay true to my own playstyle and think of the strength of some other playstyles as a positive challenge I need to overcome if I want to be a better player. I welcome you to try the same, because in the past, balancers have actually listened to the community's QQ, and they have come up with their own distorted ideas of how to "improve", "save" or "fix" cRPG. this is how Tydeuses are born, they feed on little Rider tears.

cRPG balance should just be reverted to the good old days where each class had something OP about them and the mod still had players, and then never be touched again.

Arbalest was able to 1 shot champion plated charger(I have no idea how it works now), damange output on that weapon is insane bro.
With porper build xbowers are able to be good with ranged weapons and with melee, so far best hybride class.

now now, let's not drift away into the fantasy world here :)
I never managed to one shot an elephant aka plated charger in all my years and I spent all that time with +3 arba and +3 steel bolts. Mostly I even avoid shooting chargers because they're a waste of time and bolts. I even doubt that it's possible (and don't think that it ever was possible) to twoshot a plated charger even if it comes at you full speed and you hit it in the head while riding a donkey for bonus speed

Truly xbows have been meme weapons lately but please don't come up with urban myths like this, it's a bit daunting that even after this impact of a patch people still stomp on the class like this

not anymore

but let's just give the new setup a chance for a couple of weeks before we discuss balancing further

Killing a horse typically takes 2+ bolts (of my very limited 8) and I get nothing for it besides the knowledge that I turned you into infantry for a bit.

Do you honestly think you have any sort of moral authority, Reyiz? Go genocide some more armenians and deny it ever happened, please, and stay in the middle east.
