    I always thought you could catch arrows.. although I think this would be a very good feature in kag. Archers do seem to pick on other archers a lot so If we could catch other archers arrows...BLISS

    Yeah catching arrows isn't that hard once you get the hang of it. And are trying to catch them.

    In the dark of night, the arrows just sprouts from your backs.

    If you look close enough, You can almost always see the arrows in the night. But, yeah, those are a pain. I don't think I've actually caught an arrow at night before.

    I tried doing this like forty times. It worked once. I swear I looked like a total noob jumping in front of people's arrows. One of the guys said ''Hey lem since your being all suicidal why dont you go in front of me so if any of those archers shoot at me you can just take the hit. TROLOLOL'' :>:(:

    Catching arrows is the easy part its not taking damage for it buts the hard bit, when ever I try and catch them I sometimes take damage even if they wouldn't normally hit me and it makes you look like a retard jumping into enemy arrows...

    Why not just "grab" up or down, instead of forward? You don'T need to be hit to catch it.

    its not that hard, you just gotta remember that it works like building or mining, but then without the white square around the selected object.
    if you aim at the arrow with the mouse, and its within reach, you catch it.
    just dont jump in front of the arrow, but under it, then point, click.
     
  17. true but dodging an arrow with max charge then getting as close to it with out crashing into it is properly not a good idea for ppl with bad ping and timing (so in a way its similar to bomb jumping, just without a counter etc). unless you decide to wait for a half charged shot (would properly be a bit easier), but you'd still requires some practice cause most arrows shot by archers usually takes less the a sec to reach a stopping point.

    Unless Archers have bad aim, most archers don't take in consideration of when a person is moving, and the delay of your flying arrow when its fired. If you have bad ping, well your screwed, and that person should move to the US ^^.

    I can't be fucked reading all this.

    But in reality, it's very hard to catch arrows at the speed it's set in KAG, it's impossible if the charging ring, is fully charged, that's stoooopid.

    But if maybe, the devs could implement if that the charging ring was at the charge of, 1-3, you could be able to do some MLG arrow catching.

    In KAG 1.0 since there's extreme modding that you can do to that build, you'll probly be able to implement the arrow catching.
