Fire archers - not realistic ANSWERED

Post by Belfry777 » Wed Feb 21, 2018 4:40 am

In the days of Hollywood movies we see that fire archers are very cool in many situations, this is not true, the video below will help what i'm saying so what i would like to see a miss chance and a chance not to light the target on fire.

Fire archers r the only things that prevent cannon ships and other sieges from being op, no way I would let them b nerfed, and if fire archers miss so do normal archers miss in reality


Also poison archers might sometimes hit the shield of units in which case they wouldn't b poisoned in reality, will u now suggest a chance that normal units don't get poisoned always?

Guess wat, the guy said it IS effective in naval warfare and siege, and that is indeed wat fire archers r useful for in AOS, u wouldn't use them to kill infantry, u would use them to burn down factories, sieges and ships, and since one unit in this game is at least 50 or 100 soldiers unit in a real war, 2% probability in reality is enough for 100% in game

There could be non fire chance if we had weather in this game, which we, don't

I like the storm idea but this topic is ANSWERED so until weather is added this topic is on hold!
