Re: Bow accuracy You are vastly overestimating the accuracy of longbows at range.

A quick comparison:
- no matter how good archers were, they were at best equal to current olympians
- olympic archers use recurves that have much, much better accuracy than historic longbows(better technology, light arrows specifically made for competition)
- in perfect conditions competitors can hit a 12.2 cm diameter circle from 70m with a bit over 50% chance, the very best ~90%

No matter what the source is, there is just no way random soldiers with bad equipment were performing better than today's elite, at more than 2.5x(!!!) the range.
Another comparison, a comfortable range for hunting deer with modern composites is ~40 yards.

Nominate UrW for Steam "Labor of Love" Award Sami and Erkka have kept this game evolving since 1992, which is likely longer than many of its players have been alive.

Let's give them some recognition and much deserved exposure by nominating them for the "Labor of Love" award on Steam now.
