    Apis Europae [AE] Masters of the Universe

    Thought for the day, people: "I do not consider 4 to be a bunch, if I asked for a bunch of grapes and got a vine with just 4 on it, I wouldn't consider it worth much, but if there are many then id value them."

    Some more recent statistics from recent Nations Cup matches, ordered by percentage of total kills: Obtained using: sed -nr "s/^ ?[0-9]{2}:[0-9]{2}:[0-9]{2} - (.+) (<img=ico_[^>]*>) (.+) $/\2/p" server*.txt | usort | uniq -c | usort -gr   Weapon Type:    Weapon Icon:    Number of Kills: ...

    Beta Patch 1.157 - Patch pre-release! Steam release on Wednesday.

    Not really, since the difference is that every other attack can 'hide' behind every other kill statistic, as you said, an arrow and then a kill with a sword. Headshots however by their very nature cannot 'hide' in this way, and so the count of headshot kills is more-or-less equal to the number...

    Beta Patch 1.157 - Patch pre-release! Steam release on Wednesday.

    Well, by a headshot's very nature it will show up more in a kill log, since a headshot always (excluding certain fringe circumstances) kills. One headshot is all it takes for a kill to be registered as a headshot, whereas behind every other kill there could be numerous individual hits from other...

    What effects do you envisage that having on high-end competitive play? Why are these effects positive?

    So you want to reduce throwing weapon accuracy as well? Even for arguments sake assuming your point about the ranged classes being overpowered, I don't see the motivation for that. What proportion of archers taken entirely depends on map and faction choice. Since the standard format is for one...

    Beta Patch 1.157 - Patch pre-release! Steam release on Wednesday.

    Firstly headshots also come from infantry and cavalry by means of throwing weapons, secondly as the statistics show, even if all headshots were to be taken as from rangers, they would only account for ~30% of kills. Good thing no one gives a **** since a cake isn't in any way analogous to...

    Beta Patch 1.157 - Patch pre-release! Steam release on Wednesday.

    It's not a metaphor, it's an analogy. You're trying to compare the two things in regards to their apparent shared properties and show that since attribute x of a cake is true, attribute x of competitive Warband is also true. However due to the huge discrepancies between a cake and competitive...

    What properties do a cake and competitive Warband share? How relevant is a cake to competitive Warband?

    Stop with the ridiculous cake thing, it's not in any way a suitable analogy.

    There are no rules or laws in this world governing societal, cultural or individual conduct which don't exist on the basis of numerous people coming together (i.e. a community) and setting them in place as the standard.

    I tried that argument when I applied for an Olympic spot as an archer and just ran up to the target and stuck the arrow in the centre but it didn't really work out. Nice.

    Beta Patch 1.157 - Patch pre-release! Steam release on Wednesday.

    This kinda goes towards my point. You have no idea what an actual competitive match even looks like. My point was not that you were a bad clan, simply that you as a clan have absolutely no reason to be commenting on a patch intended for competitive play. The fact you've gone and called them...

    Beta Patch 1.157 - Patch pre-release! Steam release on Wednesday.

    Since captainlust earlier stated that this patch was intended to balance elements of competitive play, I just don't see what valid input Niflheim members can possibly have. This isn't an attempt to disparage your clan, I can perfectly accept that you handle the game in the way you wish to and is...
