You should maybe read those tourney rules again. He didnt say final round, he said final round(s). As in everything after the drop out. And if you cant play CA, you are replaced by someone who you may have just defeated. So it really wouldnt matter how hard you practiced would it? You could hit every single bullseye, shoot the eye out of a swinging mouse and shoot twenty arrows in a speed round into the gold and were the greatest archer since Robin Hood, you still WILL NOT WIN unless you can shoot combat archery in the final rounds.
Doesnt sound the same anymore,
What I wanted is that we dont leave the target archers who dont wish to play CA out in the cold. I want for all to see their time in the sun.
