    So you might know that i am a bow spammer :p but i found out how many people dislike bow spammers so i have come up with a method to stop it
    -After every 30 Arrows Shot in 2-4 minutes you get "Archer's Curse" You basically cannot use you're bow for a amount of time.
    Well if you use it after getting the "Archer's Curse" You have to wait until you can use you're bow again but if you shoot 5 arrows during this "curse" the time span becomes longer and you cannot use you're bow at all (until a certain amount of time passes)

    -I personally like using a bow but because of the complains i thought of this might change it from "Bow Wars"(Bow spam until you're enemy dies) back to "Egg Wars"

    I couldn't think of a time limit until the "curse" wares off
    But after the curse is removed you have to wait 10 seconds to be able to re-use you're bow without the curse happening again

    Nice suggestion! I really dislike bowspammers too. Specially when you play Trees or Candy in teamskywars ( Overpowered ) .

    I support this idea! ;)

    Bowspamming isn't something that has to be fixed...
    It's a legit strategy for winning a fight, not a game.
    I dislike bowspammers allot, but I use it in OP eggwars so I can hold off on breaking their armor / using a risky spleef trap.
    Many players would hate this change allot since it might be their way of winning a fight.

    I am personally the type of player that bow spams if it might risk my life or if their is no other way of winning for me but many people dislike them in the forums
    if it is a problem in skywars to i see why not to add it there to
    maybe they see OH (player) has shot (Player2) 30 times, Command /remove all arrows in player inventory, time limit passes /give player all his arrows back or something like that
    if you guys really want it in other gamemodes i don't see why not
    YES!.jpg It is i just added this suggestion cause of all the complains i get for Bow spamming

    What I mean with it is:

    Player that aren't very good at melee will only stand a chance bowspamming, else it isn't even fun for them.
    I for one, am very skilled at melee and have an arrow delay issue (Arrow shoots half a second later)

    Getting rid of this bowspamming issue will be unfair for others.

    It forces them to play the game instead of spamming right click.

    Okay i am a person who is way better at archery than melee, i mean i can/sometimes shoot a player running on a bridge from quite a distance
    My melee skills are okay-good i mean i can kill someone with = gear or weaker gear
    BUT Here a my conditions to bow spamming
    -If my melee weapon breaks i bow spam
    -If using melee will most likely lead to my death i will use my bow
    -If i am outnumbered or facing someone with better gear i bow spam
    -If i need to eat steak or golden apples i bow spam to have space
    -If i need to re-gear i bow spam for space
    -If i am Sick and tired of the extremely long melee fight i will bow spam
    -If My egg is about to be destroyed i will bow spam to protect it/ buy us sometime until the enemy leaves

  13. Just like @Gainfullterror said bowspaming is a strategy which I use, it helped me win a 3v1, and the people were eliminated, so please don't make threads asking to remove bow spamming it is a useful strat when you want to kill someone who is better geared than you.[/USER]

    Getting rid of bowspamming would be extremely inconsiderate for others.

    It would make the game playable/enjoyable.
    My average win rate in a fight is 50-50 but even I don't go so desperate by spamming with Bows.
    I try to enjoy the game and actually use effort and not just staying on an island and spamming right-click.

    I never bospam and my fight winrate is usually 95-100 when geared equally or the opponent has less.
    But that's not apart of the thread.

    You're not considering the fact that there are players out there who only are good at using their bow and suck with melee.
    Getting rid of bowspam makes it very hard for them to win a fight since their winning ticket was taken away from them.
