This actually makes sense, but the videos you linked shows some modern compound bows. For instance if you watch this videos> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bGcm-J1ggfw, http://youtu.be/Fq8N8vszCMQ, you can see him slightly arching forward when loading and shooting. Like you said the animation adds some unnecessary postures and that makes it somewhat unrealistic. But I would also like to see some comments about why people like the animation because as if right now there are more yeses and I have see none or hardly any comments related to why people like it.Alex the Seeker said:the enhanced bow animations looks unnatural o.o the arm nocking the arrows looks like it bends at an wierd angle.
plus he`s like leaning forward for no reason, archers don`t have a scope on their bows to lean forward on.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KXEdY9k1gPc&feature=youtu.be&t=7m42s - this is somewhat the equivalent of a re-curved bow in-game, look how he hold the bow, even tho he has a sight thingy (ones in the middle ages/fantasy lore don`t have sights/scopes)
by leaning forward you won`t ever hit your target with a bow, only in movies you see ppl leaning and doing other unneccesary postures with the bow, because they are catchy and ppl seem to like them, but proper archery is a whole different thing o.o
so going by just efficiency no archer in a fight will use a posture like in those animations.
closest thing that comes towards that animation would be the Horse archers, but they lean a bit from complete different reasons.
i have a feeling that the people who made the whole enhanced animations, only made them to be more "artistic" and not take in account a proper fight o.o
Similar armor? I would like to see that myself, for I am not sure which one you might be referring too. The style of the link doesn't suit Perisno as stated. But armor that has somewhat that style and fit into warband would be okay.Joshua Ryde said:It is in the game? Where? Because i saw a Holy Champion wearing a similar outfit in a photo - didn't think it was this one.Katsuki said:To me, this is ugly...
Plus, it doesn't fit with the Perisnoan troops general looking. Red and gold is not their colors...
And actually this armor is already in the game. The devs ar too good
And yes, you might not like it. Just maybe some ideas to brighten up some high-tier units.
Maken them look "elite" - the dwarves like gold, maybe they could have armor like that.?
