Archers shouldn't be able to shoot arrows during blood bowl.
Apparently people don't seem to understand how the barbarian blood bowl works
as i've gotten multiple tells on this and people seem unclear on why i would
suggest archers shouldn't be able to shoot arrows...
Blood bowl involves all barbarians with nothing but the 2 weapons they are
given (which are approximately equivalent to a store bought iron axe and
mace). You are not allowed to bring any other equipment into the arena with
I am not entirely sure how an archer gets a bow into the arena, i admittedly
know little about the guild. The point is not that i somehow think archers
need to be gimped for the event, the point is that bows are not given as a
weapon to be used. I as a beastmaster cannot bring my mount in, nor can i use
polearms despite the fact that this is my preferred weapon. I have to use a
sucky mace and axe just like everyone else... except apparently the archers.
I have never played the archer guild, I don't know if guildmaster gets an
autoloading bow or something or as another player suggested perhaps it's
possible to transform anyweapon into an arrow, put that in quiver, then remove
it and transform it into a bow inside... I am not suggesting that this is what
was done, i'm not even sure if it's possible.
My one simply point in all of this is that how can an archer shoot an arrow in
an event when we're only supposed to have one axe and one mace as our fighting
instruments. It makes no sense and it gives a BIG advantage when i get shot
with a high quality merchant made arrow and all i have is a razor blade on a
stick and a rock tied to a bendy straw that i can hit back with.
