Poll Question:
Marksman VS Crossbowman

Which one is better ? I'm a little bit confused because Crossbowman looks better than Marksman (in my opinion)
Marksman deals more damage when the enemy is close less than 3 tiles but
If the enemy is near, we can't shot
If the enemy is on the second tile, we can use this ability but it says "less than 3 tiles" third tile is includes or excludes ?

And what's doing Precise Shot exactly

huge damage.

more exactly if you have 10 marksman with bless expert and your hero has 0 attack, their attack will deal 10 x 8 x 1.2 = 96 damage, whatever the creature you are shooting.

Xbows are better. The reason is that marksman can use their precise shot ability only at very close range and there are almost no factions that charge Haven. ( You need to be charged by your opponents lvl 5,6 7 units in order to make use of precise shot)

So consider marksman vs Orcs only ( if u have dark and you can make your opponent charge you), sometimes against sylvan ( still, i feel xbows are better there most of the time) and sometimes against inferno ( but thats very very situational)

Anyways with Elven bow ( artie that gives no range penalty) marksmans are better than xbows.

If i find some replays from Hrta maps, ill post here.

Not a great idea to post your email address in your signature.  That's inviting an onslaught of spam.
