I don't mean to come off as an elitist ass, but if you don't play Archer, you don't understand how it works, and shouldn't convince yourself that you know what is good or bad for them, as you just don't quite get it. From an outside perspective, it might seem stupid, but when I used to play, never ran out of arrows. Never. Not even before there was the 60 arrows max, unless you manually put arrows in. And being able to buy arrows and such is actually a really good thing, as you don't need to run back to base for more arrows, or as another class, you can bring some arrows to the front line if they are somehow in short supply. And your comment about the fact that archers shouldn't need to rely upon builders, . . . *sigh* Everything in the game relies upon the other classes. - Knights can attack, defend, break dirt and wood, but without builders helping them get through or over something, or withouth archer's cover fire or arrow ladders, they can't advance. - Builders can do so much, but they can't go forward without knights and archers killing those in their path, or at least intimidating the others into not just chasing the builder. - Archers need knights to be the meat while they pick the others off (for the less advanced archers, at least), and builders helps the knights advance, and thus, helps the archers advance. The most basic and fundamental basis that makes this game work is that you NEED to rely upon other classes, no matter what, so I can't fathom that someone who plays this game often can think that classes shouldn't have to rely upon another.
