[1013] Archer! KEG?

Discussion in 'Archer' started by Verzuvius, Jan 30, 2014.

?

Archer should use keg?

  1. I didn't need to make a poll at all for this and I should have tagged the thread with a build number

    Hello!
    As archer you will able to climb walls and be able to get to places were knights have trouble to come to. :B):
    Why don't then use KEG! ::D:

    Tell a knight to light it and then give it to you! Then climb that tower and blow the enemies castle from the inside! 25252525

    :keg::keg::keg::keg::keg::keg::keg::keg::keg::keg::keg::keg::keg::keg::keg::keg::keg::keg::keg::keg::keg::keg::keg::keg::keg::keg::keg::keg::keg:

    Suggestions or ideas?

  2. I do think it could work nicely in a mod, but not ever in normal, non-mutated kag - more gibs than necessiary.

    Mod? Don't understand that.
     
  4. A variation on the normal game code. Or something like that.

    No, I don't understand why you would need mods?

    Btw, I think people misunderstands the meaning of "use a KEG". It isn't "light a KEG"!

    I have played several Wars where Kegs destroyed the Map in a terrible unplayable way. Archers using Kegs will worse the situation.

    ... Archers can already carry kegs

    I did it yesterday, I lit it as a knight and then dropped it and then an archer threw it over the enemy's wall (by grappling a tree and letting go while going up) It did alot of damage!

    He means, go to front with a knight, let him lit the keg and grapple over their base.

    This is, er.. already a feature. Archers can carry lit kegs, knights can light them for you.

    If archers could light their own kegs, honestly that'd be a terrible mechanic. Oh the ghost caps in TTH...

    Not to mention, kegs explode instantly when thrown from a high place. Archers can reach those high places easily by grappling/bungee-jumping.

    Knights lighting kegs for them is enough. It encourages teamwork, too.

    Erm. Then why did you make this thread? Raise awareness or something? Most people already know about doing this, but most knights prefer to hug the wall and kamikaze.

    I made this thread to raise awareness and I wanted people to come up with ideas and tricks.

    Also, now when a knight comes to a archer and says: "keg!", the archer may understand and together with the knight perform an excellent work. ::):

    This is one thing not to do with a lit keg, put it through/on a trampoline. Insta explosion

    This will never work unless you're voice chatting with a friend. Gives me an idea for my next co-commentary though. Most archers are too dumb to do this but with a little voiced teamwork...

    We've thought of doing it. Do you know how the keg's mechanics work?

    Kegs don't explode when destroyed, unless lit. This method would do absolutely nothing, unless the keg was already lit.

    This also means you can't cause keg chain-reaction interactions with other, unlit kegs... which makes me a little sad. ::(:

    But yeah, that doesn't work.
