Patch Updates affecting Archers

patch release date description
Mar 23, 2016 - 14 months ago Quicker initial attack (like Spear Goblins) - The Archers' use rate falls off after the early game, while the Spear Goblins remain popular across all levels. We’re making their initial attack quicker, so they'll feel more responsive and effective.
