    Here is a video of the angle of attack required to get past a down shielding knight.


    The archer has to jump and fire at the zenith to get past his shield on level ground. (I was one block higher in the video)

    I personally feel like this is unfair. I would be okay with it if the shield bump did not stun. The way it is a knight can do shield bump stun archer and then stab spam or get a slash off before an archer can get away or charge a shot. This basically allows him to attack and defend at the same time.

    That video says it all. The fact that the shield blocks that much is... nuts.

    You have my support. This should change.

    I'm just going to ignore that last bit and ask if you have any other arguments aside from "I believe Archers are overpowered, so we should continue allowing Knights to be essentially invulnerable to arrows while against Archers on ground level."

    If you don't... well, your argument isn't all that convincing.

  5. Archers have a grapple and a shotgun, use them.

    Wait.
    Is this thread suggesting to nerf the shield angle?

    I believe it's saying nerf the shield angle while sliding along the ground.
