Bow didnt need a nerf, never did. There just should have been a better way to counter it. Bow is only a problem in arena, and there are easy ways to fix that.
People dont realize that bow is only strong because everyone that has problems with it either:
1. Always sits in one place, moves in one direction
2. Is too lazy to do any counters
3. Is Pizzao
One idea: make it so that hitting a arrow with melee knocks the arrow out, or bounce it back like kicking does. Only problem with kick is that it has almost 0 mobility. hitting has very good mobility, and it will add skill to timing hits to block bows. Will also make claws very effective against bow users, especially with the highly effective special.
