    Aye guys,

    In my opinion, the knockback sword should be removed (or at least nerfed) from tsw. This because its very overpowered, loved by campers and requires no skills to be used. Literally every single person can get one or two hits and knock someone off, which prevents players from having a 'real' pvp-fight. Due to people camping and getting 'one-hit-kills' with the knockback sword, I personally feel like it sometimes messes up the pvp aspect of the game.

    I'm pretty sure that there will be plenty of people who disagree with me, this is just my personal opinion. Feel free to share your own. :)

    Friendly Greetz,
    Johny

    The Punchbow should stay, OP skywars is more for the fun, the knockback sword could possibly be changed

    every person could shot someone off with a punchbow so it's almost the same

    Its not the same, as the punchbow is a bit harder to use than the knockback sword. A good timing and a good aim are 2 of the requirements while using a bow. This is something else then when you one-hit someone. And that has nothing to do with skills.

    Doesn't really give you much kb, as you don't shoot with full power. The kb sword is the major problem.

    Dont really see the problem here... You can only get a knockback sword in OP. And the problem is that the kb sword is overpowerd. So thats perfect right?
    Now I do understand that its annoying to get hit of an island after 3/4 hits. But you can kill people in 3/4 hits with a sharp IV dia sword as well... Andif you build a little wall around your island (what most people do allready against bows) you should be fine.
    The KB sword also is pretty rare. Usually there only are about 3 kb swords on the spawn islands and +/- 2 in mid.
    I think it is good as it is and nothing should be changed.
    How many times did you get killed with a KB sword in comparison to the bows and swords?

    1. The kb sword is not very rare. There are plenty of kb swords on each island. (OP)
    2. As already said above, the 'normal' sword and the kb bow have nothing to do with this thread, as these require some skills, and are not very overpowered.
    3. The problem is not that the kb sword is overpowered, the problem is that its too overpowered, which actually isn't perfect at all.
    4. You can kill people with a Sharp IV sword. But you can also kill people with your bare hands, I don't really get the point of what you just said, as a sharpness sword has nothing to do with a kb sword. You can actually protect yourself against a sharpness sword by having armour, gapples, or notch apples. All of these won't help you out if your opponent has a kb sword.

    Most of the people like the knockback swords, why not low the enchantment, like instead of Knockback V, go with Knockback II?

    I don't see why it should be removed it is part of the game to not get knocked off the island. Removing or nerfing the sword would not help solve problems in my opinion.
