So, I know the bows were changed so that they were more even and fair. That is a good idea but the way they are right now is kind of ridiculous. First off, Ranger bows are the same as a vanilla bow, which makes no sense. Literally rohirric bows are better, and they shouldn't because first off the Rangers main weapon is a bow and second off the bow is a big part of the Rangers pvp. Secondly, some factions like Mordor and Gondor are kind of unbalanced more now because Gondor had better archers, now they really don't. When comparing Gondor archers V Mordor archers before this update you can see Gondor had better bows so they were better archers. The bows weren't overpowered or anything or weren't better greatly, they were just better because they had better range. So, to kind of end this rant I'm just gonna give a list of what bows in my opinion should be changed and why.
Ranger Bows: The ranger bows right now are basic vanilla bows. 100% in every category, making them one of the worst in the game. Like I stated early the Ranger faction is kind of thought of as being archers, and now that their bows are completely garbage, the Ranger faction just kind of sucks now. I suggest changing their ranger to 125%, because it would give them good range. They shouldn't have any increased damage or speed, but having max range would make the most sense.
Gondor Bows: The Gondorians had really good bows in lore, and also the Gondorian Archers were better than orc archers. With this update, Orc Archers and Gonodiran archers are pretty much the same now, which doesn't make any sense. My suggestion is to make the range 120%, just to give them a bit more range, so the only difference between Orc and Gondor archers would be that the Gondorians would have more range.
Rohirric Bows: Ultimately, I think rohirric bows should be a bit faster than most bows, because they are short bows used mainly by horseriders. I think that 110% for rohirric bows would be an ideal percentage as it is faster but not too fast.
Of course, to keep it fair, it shouldn't only be good factions that get buffs.
Rhunic Bows: They should probably have a bit more range, just to keep things more fair. On top of this, one of their main Enemies is Dale, so giving them a bit more range would allow them to compete a bit more. Giving Rhunic bows 110% Range would be a good number in my opinion.
Orc bows should be the same because they aren't really meant to be good.
Gundabad Uruks Bows: A little more speed would alow them to compete a bit more with their enemies ultimately. Making their speed 80% would be a fair number instead of 67%.
Thanks for reading, and would love to hear back from anyone who has anything else to add on or would just like to talk about this topic.
