    Please get these bows removed, I really like to play OP once a time and everytime it gets voted, everyone camps because of the bow, you can't do anything because if you build to another island you 8/10 times get shot and fly to the bottom of the world or you won't make it because your neighbour is camping aswell.

    SkyWars is a tactical based game. You can actually easily win from bowcampers, just gather enough resources to build safely, get stronger and plan a surprise attack or something. There are enough possibilities, and it's called OP for a reason.
    If you don't like it, I can also recommend donating for Diamond or higher to have influence on the chest types.

    What can I do about people who just build like 15 blocks UP, then build a small square of 5x5 with walls of 3 high with windows in it? There's nothing you can do about it lol.

    This image shows what I mean. Tell me what I can do against these campers? I can shoot them but they won't fly out, I can shoot them so they get damage, But then they will just eat 1000 apples or build up the windows with blocks so you cant hit them anymore, and if you finally got to their island you can build up but then they will just shoot you or put lava down.

    I guess situations like that do get pretty annoying, and there is not much to do. To be honest I would like it to be a little less op (I know that sounds stupid :p) I would like it either put down to punch 2/1 or become rare. Because like every single chest has one. And even though you can defend against people like Blaze said, it can be pretty hard to be focused all the time and not get hit off.

    This happens, yes it does but the chance of a game being OP is low since not everyone likes OP Skywars games, so if this happens all you have to do is try to bridge to them slowly and safely and you can get to them for sure. -1

    Honestly I like and dislike OP bows. It's a great satisfaction shooting someone off and watching them fly away, However, it's soooo annoying when people camp, there isn't much we can do, people always camp regardless of what item they have. A tip when you are in this situation, pretend to be AFK in chat, and wait till they build over and shoot them off, works for me :p Or I just go down for a cup of tea and see if they've moved after 5 mins or so.

    Punch bows are amazing, but they should make it so that is can come up less frequently, instead of making a whole factions base and camping there.

    They're basically the only reason that I NEVER vote for overpowered chests. They're extremely frustrating and the entire chest type contradicts itself, giving items that encourage both rushing and camping play-styles. I would suggest that rather than removing them, distributing punch III books so that you cannot just loot a chest and immediately be at an advantage to those who surround you. Otherwise I would either recommend reducing their spawnrates or just leaving them as is. Sure they're annoying, but do what the rest of us do and vote only for normal chests and you'll be fine.

    If it's too OP: don't vote OP. Ops in the name. This is OP. If you don't like it don't vote for it.
