Why couldn't Archer win the battle against Berserker?
>>
>>135086243
MUH ILLYA plus you realize that while you're busting your ass off, Seiba is being double teamed by your past self and mastah.
>>
>>135086243
Because the plot demanded it.
>>
>>135086372
You know, that might not be a wrong answer.

Archer lived through a very similar timeline to Fate. Maybe he just knew he was supposed to go out there and then.

It's not like he couldn't have done more if he absolutely needed to. Just aim for Ilya.
>>
>>135086243
He win 6 times without invoking UBW in nerfed state.
>>
>>135086450
He wasn't in a nerfed state. He was actually the strongest he ever is in Fate/Stay Night. (Invoking UBW wouldn't actually help him, and would in fact hinder him since he loses all terrain defense [it's a barren wasteland] and drains assloads mana for absolutely no purpose. The automatic rank down on projections makes them worthless against Berserker.)

>He was actually the strongest he ever is in Fate/Stay Night
That would be against lancer at the church in UBW, actually. However, he was outright trying to "barely lose".
>>
>>135086552
He wasn't trying to win against Cuchulainn, just stall for time.
He was trying to win against Heracles.
>>
>>135086570
>He wasn't trying to win against Cuchulainn, just stall for time.
I just said that. He was still at his strongest.

If Ilya had known Archer's true identity, would she had continued to order Berserker to kill Archer?
>>
>>135086243
because fuck Emiya Shirou, let him handle it
>>
>>135086601
Most likely. Illya knows a lot about the war and would probably know that it wouldn't cause a problem for her plans for Shirou.
>>
>>135086508
He is still recuperating from saber's wound. Furthermore, he didn't get extra mana supply from Rin while Berserker got ridiculous amount of mana from Ilya.

It's just my personal opinion (read: fanwank), but I think strongest Archer is in one UBW bad ending where Caster capture Shirou to use his projection. It implied that Archer win 5th HGW then Rin mercy kill Shirou from Caster.
>>
>>135086243
Because Tohsaka Rin was too busy pleasing old kings for mana.
>>
>>135086243
UBW could never ever defeat anyone who has mastered a weapon.
>>
>>135086647
>He is still recuperating from saber's wound.
No he wasn't. He was explicitly stated to be fully healed a scene beforehand.
>Furthermore, he didn't get extra mana supply from Rin
Even if he did not, he has independent action that prevents this from degrading his ability at all.
>>
Archer's main thing is that he's good at manipulating the playing field. With only going by the DEEN version (which is all we have), he really didn't do much of that.

Seriously, shoot a fucking arrow at Ilya. Berserker will tank it. That's entirely how Gil fucked with the guy.
>>
>>135086243
Becauser Berserker can only be killed by A rank Noble Phantasm and he can only be killed by the same weapon once.

Archer doesn't have that many A rank NPs in either his projections or in UBW.
>>
>>135087283
You think UBW Shirou snagged a fair few when he fought Gil?

I mean he must have.
>>
>>135087283

he can use b rank broken phantasms which rank up.
>>
>>135086243
Becasue more mechanical limbs is not always advantage, they have not to be retarded like these

He already recovered from it.

>>135087313
UBW Shirou is probably the strongest Shirou at the end of their respective routes, at least the ones we see.

He's got all of Archer's UBW, at least a decent chunk of Gil's treasury, ten years head start on EMIYA in learning how to use and master it, plus all his circuits unlocked much earlier. And at least during the route, he can draw on Rin's mana.

All archers are jobbers. That's their real title.

Do you guys memorize shit like this?
