    Hello CubeCrafters!

    Last week, we introduced INFECTION, the second in a series of three new BETA games that make up the ISLAND GAMES trilogy! Today, we're really excited to announce the third and final game of the series, called Archer Assault. We really hope you enjoy Archer Assault, and we hope that you will continue to give us feedback on the forums, helping us to shape these games. As all three of the Island Games are still in BETA, we apologise if mechanics change without prior notice, but we will be working on bringing more features, maps, etc to them over the coming weeks.

    So let us not delay!
    Archer Assault is a game where working as a team really matters, it takes inspiration from games like Overwatch and Team Fortress 2 and brings these into Minecraft. The objective of the game is to take control of the centre, and secure the objective, whilst playing as one of the four different Archer Classes.

    Classes

    There are four classes for you to pick from in Archer Assault - and each of the four classes has a unique bow, and even more unique abilities. Your team will need to work together, and in most cases, have a mixture of the classes to win the game!

    You get 3 things in each class...

    A unique bow - Which you will always have, with infinite arrows.
    Ability - This has a charge up, which takes time to build up before you can use your ability.
    Ultimate - Again, this has a charge up, but this takes more time to build up before you can use your Ultimate. You can also boost the charge up with kills.

    Tank

    Screen Shot 2017-09-22 at 13.01.53.png

    The Tank class contains a Shotgun Bow, and your ability is "Launch Jump". This lets you jump high and far to get you in and out of a PVP situation with speed. You'll definitely find this will be useful as the Tank Class is slowed down... BUT the Tanks Ultimate is "Invincibility", this will remove your slowness and you won't take ANY damage for a short amount of time.

    Medic


    Screen Shot 2017-09-22 at 13.02.02.png

    The Medic class contains a Bow, but the bows damage is reduced... HOWEVER, it heals your team if you shoot it at them! Your ability is "Heal", which is pretty self explanatory. This lets you heal yourself - It'll come in handy as the low damage bow means you might find yourself on low health quite fast. The Medics Ultimate is "Healing Pod", this is an object which you can physically place on the floor and it heals all of your team if in radius.

    Demolition

    Screen Shot 2017-09-22 at 13.02.09.png

    The Demolition class contains a Explosive Bow... BOOOM (1 Damage :p) Your ability is to place "Mines" - When your enemy steps on it, it explodes! The Demolition Ultimate is "TNT Throw", this gives you a piece of TNT to blow up your enemies!

    Land mine placed!

    Offensive


    Screen Shot 2017-09-22 at 13.02.14.png

    The Offensive class contains an Instant Fire Bow, this fires an arrow instantly! Spam click to your hearts content... (Or hold right click ;)) Your ability is "Invisibility", which is pretty self explanatory. This lets you hide and sneak up on your enemies. The Offensive Ultimate is "Machine Bow", this upgrades your Bow to a machine gun style one!

    What does BETA mean?

    You may notice that the game shows as being in BETA. This means that the game may have major changes made to it without any notice being given. We're going to be constantly working on all three of the Island Games, taking your thoughts into consideration. We're welcoming all feedback on our forums and will be listening to your feedback for changes you'd like to see. Feel free to put your feedback here.

    We hope you enjoy the game!

    I played a few games already and it's a really fun game.
    I don't really like the fast bow, it feels so weird to use without drawing. But I'm not sure how that could be changed, the game mechanic actually works well. I mentioned some other minor issues I have with the game in this thread: https://www.cubecraft.net/threads/archer-assault.197988/#post-906621

    A few things I've been asking myself:
    How does healing work, does a fully charged hit heal more or can I stand close to a teammate and spam?
    Does the primary arrow of the tank do more damage? If not, I think that would be a decent way to nerf the tank and make it a bit more challenging to play with, reduce the damage of side arrows a little.

    What does 1 Damage mean? Is it really just half a heart per hit? That's not much...
    This class seems very underpowered. As mentioned here, barricades aren't very useful and therefore demolishing them isn't either. Maybe the arrows should do more charge independent damage per hit.

    My favourite classes are Tank and Healer so far.

    I haven't played it yet but I really like how it sounds :p I really love how the map looks too, something about it seems really familiar but I can't think of what it is xD

    I'll have to see if it beats Infected which is my favorite game out of the three so far, thank you!
