    I think we were a bit over tuned. This seems to hit us hardest in 1v1 while keeping out PVE untouched and minor nerf in NW. Not really going to effect me much. Furthermore seems to be on point with what an archer is.

    Here lets see how archers fair without a front line (1v1) is this documentary:

    Says the one who is playing the class that can kill everyone in 0.5 seconds.

    Imoh, archers have only the knockbacks/knockdowns and a back jump as a defend mechanic. As soon as you touch an archer it dies.
    While we are busy performing flashy skills over 1-2 seconds every other class can close the gap and iframe/dash 5 times.
    I find myself in a T1 easy node war dying in mid air because i have a ninja/lahn in my back and a valk in my face.
    Don't get my started in RBF.

    The main problem here is that archer won't be able to defend his farming spot anymore. We will be sitting ducks.

    you have the right to have your opinion, but archer is without a doubt the best class in the game as it is right now
    a nerf is deserved, and what they are nerfing isnt even what makes the class strong

    Step 1 - See archer before he launch tactical nuke on you.
    Step 2 - Approach archer while dodging million knockdowns
    Step 3 - Once you near him, try to survive back jump knockdown attack.
    Step 4 - After you survived step 3, try to catch sliding archer.
    Step 5 - Survive another round of knockdown attacks that mostly bypass front guard.
    Step 6 - Attack archer and hope you attack registering - aka archer out of movement skills.
    Step 7 - Easily kill archer at close ranger after you successful CCed him.

    Facts? When you make a statement like that i assume you play the class and you know what are you talking about.
    What about ninja? God mode?
    Now please tell me more how a class with 1-2 seconds flashy skills and no SA on main weapon is the best class compared to the others.
    Oh wait, we have frontal guard in awakening, useless when every other class is behind you in 2 steps.
    Did i forgot to mention you actually have to AIM the skills at the target?
    Yes, we can dish out some decent damage, that's a fact. But also, most of the players can see our skills from miles away and they will iframe/dodge in no time.
    Without a knockback/knockdown our chances to kill someone will be very slim.

    Right on point.
    Since archer is stamina hungry we run out of back jumps fast, we can do 3 without any other skill in between.
    Good players found an easy tactic to deal with archers. Iframe/dodge to left or right, jump behind him = insta kill.
    In the meantime i find myself dead in the middle of the skill since archer has 0.5-1 seconds animation on every skill.
    Thats enough time to get rekt :)

    I've said they are forcing me to reroll, i never said i'm gonna do it.
    Everyone knows they are nerfing all classes one by one because money. Just wait and see a crapstorm when they gonna nerf ninja/kuno/zerker/witch/wiz.
    Good thing that instead of stating some facts you chose to offend me :)
    Kudos to you forum warrior.

    This nerf is still not enough. Range damage should be nerfed.

    what's the point of stating facts when all you wanted was have some attention with this kind of stupid thread
    you obviously are convinced these nerfs are not deserved, so why would anyone waste time trying to change your mind ?

    Play a respectable class fotm chad kid.
    Enjoy the nerf, more to come and enjoy the seat. ALL the Classes's been waiting for this.
    Just as every other player had to deal with the SA and CC Changes, learn to adapt with it.
    Archer is STILL Meta even after the slight nerf. And you have the audacity to cry about it.

    UNREAL.

    excuse me fine sir, but the mobility of the archer in the documentary ( :D ) would make me believe this is a warrior vs witchzard clip.

    Range damage should be nerfed? No-no-no. We need to pick up the bow from the archer. So that an archer cannot shoot from a bow. This is a great idea!
