Archers opening doors

  1. Does Anyone else just hate when you are fighting, via your frontline tower and then an archer comes up to the door opens it for all the fire to come through the door then it that second all the builder knights bombs arrows come through that door and eventually you see the tower gone demolished and you just think that archer.

    Make ceiling doors, always. Don't put your doors on the floor, always.
  3. Mainly what I'm talking about is if your 7 blocks up the opposing team uses ladders and everything then manages to get in.

    You also find that bomb jumpers manage to get in as well it can be very chaotic as I'm a builder I then get blown up due to the doors being open

    I try my hardest, but archer is just such a difficult class to play. ;-;

    It's a shame that we're so busy shooting enemies, because that takes up extra time that can be used to keep our team doors open, so if we stand in them whilst we shoot, well, that's killing two birds with one stone, as they say.

    Archers seem to get the impression that they're invincible. As overpowered as they are, though, they definitely can't kill a group of knights crowding a door. So why oh why do they invariably walk through the door just to die?

    Well, they have more of a reason to feel ashamed for what they've done, because it ends up with their team getting screwed.

    Gunna plug this long and hard, but b800 archers are the happy medium, they can't get away with poor play because of mobility, rapid fire, or stuns.
  13. it's unbalanced

    If you are willing to go builder and create actual defenses, here's how to prepare for most of what will happen to your base when an archer holds the door open.

    -Backwall the tower enough that it becomes 6-wide at any doorways. That way, it doesn't die to a single bomb.
    -Put spikes on the 3-4 closest stone blocks above the doorway. Then, knights can't bomb jump and just slide down into the door while the archer holds it open for him. For extra defense, shift the tower just above the doorway 1 block over toward the enemy to prevent that perfect bombjumper from landing right in the door without having to slide down.
    -Make sure you have a safe way for archers to fire down somewhere above the doorway, to prevent them from easily laddering up with a builder.
    -Have at least two doorways in your tower. When the enemy finally decides to try laddering up, there is always a possibility that they will just put stone over your tower exits to stall your team. Having more than one exit will prevent this.

    And lastly, don't be vvv this guy vvv.
