Another suggestion about ranged

Hi. I wanted to share yet another possible solution to ranged population. As you might have known - I vouch for reducing the amount of ammo any ranged can carry.

I suggest to make all current ammo items 1 slot instead of 0 and add small 0 slot variants (having around 50% of ammo count and having the same stats).

For instance:

Impact:
Hybrid crossbowmen will have less ammo. Arbalest users will have maximum of 10 steel bolts (15 bolts without weapon). Was 16 (24 without weapon).

Archers will have a reason to use 0 slot weapons + smaller bows will have a benefit of being 2 slot. Archers with 3 slot bows will have maximum of 29 bodkin arrows (40 arrows without weapon). Was 36 (54 without weapon) and free slot.

All the ranged will have to loom new item if they want to use 0 slot alternative of it alongside their usual arrows.

Ranged players will have to actually care to aim better and collect&count their ammo. It will result in less ranged spam overall and less frustration in the end of the rounds because of ranged being full hp and having 20 arrows left to shoot the shit out of you.

Fully agreed. Allows the skilled ranged to flourish still whilst also making it sure that you have to genuinely take care with what you're shooting at to make sure you hit your shots.

Kinda, except in this case it's just one arrow to the head and you instantly die unless you're a pure strength build wearing nothing but full plate

I dont wear plate on any char I have and they dont die to 1 arrow unless I have already taken damage from other sources. Except on my runner/thrower who only wears stuff like mw tabard/surgeons coat but most of the time I dont even use a helm on him and dont see it as bad as you are painting it to be.

I like the idea of xbows being less ammo, but big damage. Wouldnt change much though as far as crying about ranged goes, but its a good gameplay decision.

NOT OK: running away or avoiding confrontation to search for ammo

All ranged will get banned eventually => ez ranged population decrease!

masturbating while looking in a mirror isnt wrong unless its the rear view mirror and you are driving a school buss.

it doesnt matter if you are happiest person or an unfortunate weeper, a powerfull beast or a terrifying creature. we are all equal, in the eyes of the reaper.

Often times the best solutions are the simplest. Nice suggestion!
