I havent played the original stronghold just the sequel... but i wasnt refering to that, yes the longbow has a great penetrating power but it required a great deal more strength also to pull the bow and it was difficult to find the trees suitable for making good longbows. The crossbows simplicity in its firing mechanism gave it a slightly bigger penetrating power as the velocity was slightly higher. The longbow was far its superior but due to its high costs and high training times it became less used than the crossbow...
