Guys - how bad to you think archers really are? Yes they can`t hit all units on the walls - but this is somewhat planned, as I said we`ll make it a bit better, but not by much. The game mechanics are just changing to make ranged units on the walls more realistic, and push players towards using Siege Towers, ladders and infantry on walls.

I believe there useless. I mean who rushes a wall without thinning those archers out. you get 60 units to siege a castle you would have to take alot of siege eq to breach those walls. i can hold anyone off before now i doubt anyone can get in. Archers on a wall already had an advantage with hording and towers. That gave them range and protection. Maybe up their protection on a wall but to make it where you cant kill them is not good. If you are shooting for realistic then unkillable archers is far from it. For example on sieges since the change i send my archers in but it only kills 1 out of 4-5 you dont know which one it kills and i guess it dont matter but to set for 20 min and not kill anything cause its on a wall is nuts.

Sunleader i agree we need the players. An i doubt anyone can say im not a huge supporter of the game i normally play 30-40 hrs a week and get every friend i can to play. However and im not complaining about the game love it to death but when siege a castle with archers that can not be killed is nuts. What historic war was ever fought were they send foot soldiers and siege without cover fire. Also it gives elves a hugh advantage their bolt throwers are best and even if you get elven enchanters as merc's you dont get to summon bolt thorwers.

I agree that using archers that are below archers on a wall/tower is now not very useful, I don't mind as I like being pushed to use trebuchets/siege ladders/towers/ attack infantry/dragons. I watched an archer duel between xbows on an inner (higher) wall and the outer wall (my) archers won because they were elven archers lobbing arrows onto crossbowmen. But it took 10 or 20 minutes. It was not very fast and that's fine. I think the reign of the archer is coming to an end in Dof

Miklos - good point, and as I mentioned we will improve things a little bit - fixing the issue where arrows just don`t hit archers on walls, instead we`ll keep the defense bonus. However the archer on wall should have a 6vs1 advantage. You will be able to minimize this advantage by hiding your attacking archers behind siege tower, and in the near future the siege shield. That should bring it to something like 2.5vs1.

Archers will become much more effecting in the field combat though, but as far as sieges go, in historical sieges an archer or crossbowman on the wall could take out a dozen of units without any danger to himself.

And do give ladders and towers a try. One infantry unit on the walls can clear out 2-3 archer battalions, and once we make arrows useless at short range in March, one melee unit could clear out entire wall of archers.

Yeah agreed. Level 15 is = 3 level 1 battalions. And 2 level 15 archers should be equally matched with 1 level 1 archers on the walls. Unless you hide your arches behind a siege tower. Although if you are talking about NPC town siege, I think they are level 10 there...
