Ok, I realized this block of text would be more appropriate in this thread maybe, copy-pasta from Tugmundr's thread :
Right after crosshairs were added to Vikingr, shortly after the launch of the mod (1 year and 5 months ago?), I dedicated myself to archery and along with Smiley and Peohs (Peohs a little bit after, as far as I know) we were godly marksmen. I played archer almost exclusively for 1 month or more and if I was double teaming with Smiley, both as archers, we would easily decimate the majority of the enemy team, which was pretty fun but also felt pretty silly deep-down, I just didn't have the appreciation for what Vikingr was meant to be back then, but then I realized how stupid I was, since I could just go do that in Native, which caters to archers much more. Hell, I bet not more than a handful of people remember me as an archer, and I never play as one now because I disagree with the power of the role in this mod.
Honestly, only 1 archer per 15 players sounds good enough. In a big battle, say with 30 on each side, those 2 WILL BE a very powerful force if they have any experience, I have NO DOUBT about that.
