    Remove It.

    I don't need to say anymore. Punch bows are just way too annoying and add NOTHING to the game other than spammers and campers. I don't see what's so bad about power bows...

    This bow is mostly used for bowspam, but can be used to pull of kills when someone is on a wider bridge. I don't think that they will remove it because of the amount of bowspammers that will complain. It can be a strategy, just kind of a sad one.

    That's exactly the problem. Why can't they just go on the bridge and spleef or melee knockback...

    I quite like the randomness of punch bows added into eggwars. Plus, you can use them to kill campers easier.
    Sorry, I don't really support this idea.

    Campers are much easier to kill with power bows. Spleefing is way more random than a punch bow, nobody sees that coming.

    I don't know why but I quite like punch bows and I'd rather they not be removed.

    I guess different people have different opinions on this.

    Punch bows are a very useful tool
    - You can knock a camper back for like 3-5 seconds and bridge 2 blocks further, increasing time every time you advance
    - Bowspamming is bad, I know, we all do. But when you're getting attacked by 4 people at once with the same gear, it's just WAY easier to use that
    - Spleef is good, but allot riskier.

    Plus removing it would give the developers allot of hate since it may have been their only way of winning

    I love punch bows, mainly because it clearly shows if someone is hacking :-D If you get hit by power, you can't always see a great deal of knock back. Where as with a punch you can. punch is also good with kills on bridges.

    I like punch bows and don't want them to leave :)

    If you need any help, send me a PM.

    Thanks, James Lawrence

    Why I hate punch bows:They can be used to easily lock people in a bow combo, which is really hard to get out if if you are not near cover, and it prevents melee fights. They are a bow spammer's best friend. Makes people not need to learn how to melee fight(which is a bad thing). In op(which I rarely play) it is the most effective bow instead of the power bows.

    Punch bows have advantages and disadvantages, but try to make advantage from the disadvantage ;)
    I don't know something else to say because I don't know how I feel rn. I have no idea if they should remove it or not, so a 50/50 from me.

    Without a punch bow, you could just stand in the middle of an open bridge and be safe from campers.
    Or you could just run away... I can kill them quite easily.
    Or... just run up to them.
    Spleef. Melee Knockback. Power Bows.

    People are complaining about the removal of punch 3 in op, so I don't even want to imagine if they removed punch bows.

    Risky, Running straight into a hacker can be the death of you if you don't know what you're doing
    Running away while getting punched by 4? All you need is a small opening, think of the armor durability.
    4v1's in eggwars usually aren't that hard but punch bows are a nice tool to give you more options

    Some people are not good with melee combat so they revise to bows. No need to remove this, its very helpful.

    If they don't want to melee, they can use a power bow or spleef.

    In some situations neither of those is effective, like in a big open area where melee is dominant.
    Punch bows provide space for the player to revise a quick plan to try and kill the target. If we were to remove the punch bow, bows would pretty much become a thing used occasionally in a game, since a punch bow is the best way to kill someone bridging from a distance away.
    Taking away punch bows is like taking away enchanted golden apples, They have their uses and some might hate them, but they still use it against others.
    If they were to remove the punch bow OR my enchanted apple example, both would lead to allot of hate since it changes the way the game is played quite a bit.
    People almost never like change.
