At the Battle of Agincourt in 1415 about 6,000 English archers won a surprise victory against over 20,000 French knights.
Shortly afterward the forums exploded with unhappy customers:- [sic]
The French were calling the archer class overpowered, and demanded it to be nerfed.
They also complained that the English had grinded a lot of experience with their archers, and spent a lot of time getting their longbows.
The English on the other hand were furious about server imbalances allowing the French to outnumber them 3 to 1.
Knights having much cooler looking armour apparently made lots of new players choose that class, and the English were worried that the French would just zerg them once their n00bs learned2play. :)
