Posted on 03 September 2017 - 07:18 AMI do not know where to post this: either in community feedback or arenaPVP.
I thought about posting this in Arena PvP as most of the duel types usually have bows.
So I want to start this out by saying that, most of the time, in BuildUHC bowspammers can be easily countered by just placing blocks in front of you so the arrows hit the blocks. But in Diamond(what I usually play besides BuildUHC), I find myself running continuously and dodging the arrows that they send out. The only counter to bowspammers in Diamond is to dodge. You have no blocks to place. I just played a match with somebody that probably emptied his full half a stack of arrows. Like what, why??? Just fight me melee.(I beat him anyway.) I understand if you shoot 2-3 arrows but from like 5 on it's already way too much. Bowspammers are like runners, except they attack a little. They just hit you with the bow if you didn't dodge and then they run away like little cowards. I know I can use my bow but I would rather prefer a melee fight, that's why I shoot like 1-2 max 3 arrows after the match starts then go to fight people.
That was all.
TL;DR - Bowspammers are cowards and annoying.

Posted on 03 September 2017 - 09:40 AMBow spamming and shooting is just another strategy of the overall kit and something you need to learn to counter. While the kit may feel melee oriented it really supports both styles of pvp. People will continue to bow and all you can do is practice and learn new styles against them. I think the bow really does help add a new element of skill into the kit as well.
Posted on 03 September 2017 - 10:40 AMThe bow is a crucial part of Diamond. If someone is bow spamming in Diamond they clearly don't know how the kit works, because they are just wasting arrows, and the whole point is to conserve arrows not waste them. After all, the bow is usually the deciding factor on who wins the match, so if you don't have arrows you usually lose. I would suggest watching a few videos from top-level players and seeing how they play the kit.

Posted on 07 September 2017 - 01:32 PMjust because your not good doesn't mean you can blame it on bow lol
Posted on 07 September 2017 - 01:52 PMI wasn't saying I'm good and I wasn't blaming the fact that I'm not good on a bow. It just hurts my brain when I see people that spam their bow and hit me like 2 times, that's why I made this thread. It also kinda makes me mad when people just run away from you and bow you continuously. Like if you bow me you're not gonna make a comeback from 1 heart while I have like 5.
Posted on 07 September 2017 - 05:31 PMAs annoying as it may be, it is a completely viable strategy you just need to work around. It takes skill and practice to be good at dodging arrows, and not getting bow spammed, just as it takes skill to bow spam.
