I agree with Mahee.  Both the ballista and arrow fire needs to be more 
coordinated.  This happened during small periods of the battle, mostly with 
the ballista and sometimes with groups of archers (two or three) at most.  
Sir Timo was mostly the one working with the archers I believe when he had 
the chance.  I'm not sure who coordinated the ballista fire.  It came later 
in the defense though.

Things I think we need to work on are the archers working closer in and in 
groups of 2 or 3 at least.  The groups with not as much experience need to 
have their fire directed so that it is effective by someone who knows who 
being killed would be more effective.  A good example would be....killing 
some of the hats first as apposed to getting a shot on a shieldman in the 
line (unless he has a hat or belt).  Some of the Dukes and the like are 
tremendous combat multipliers by themselves.

I like the idea of everyone carrying a bow or crossbow.  It gives the rest of 
the fighters some fun while they're waiting for the attack to hit the castle. 
 It would be a little more difficult to organize while on the offense though, 
but it is doable.  The more arrows we have in the air the better chance of 
someone getting hit.
