Since they gave the snakebite bug report a ticket-number (or whatever you want to call the number in the squared brackets),
we can assume that it is in fact zeroed in at the wrong distance.

Further evidence to show that the bow is not calibrated to 20m:

1: One shot at 20m . Head shot missed
2: same shot at 20m, but pointing as if to 30m

(At least) the Longbow sights have changed (i.e. are completely messed up) after the "29.08.14" update.

These are my preliminary observations:

Meista, that looks good. I added 30 & 40m lines. (after about 40 shots at the range).
It would be good if a few people could verify, because my longbow skill is still pretty low.

Someone in another thread mentioned, that the lines might be a tiny bit too high. he might be right, at least for the 20-40m marks.
i'm at level 7, so there's still a fair amount of wobble, as well.

FYI. Looks like now both the longbow and crossbow without site are way off from the OP.

Learned this the hard way during the holiday competition were you needed to shoot a coyote with the Longbow. Missed all my shots except one bad body shot. Went back to the range and found out that you need to aim A LOT lower now. Very bumped about this, especially after I have a video on my channel explaining how easy shots are over 20-25 meters. If you watch that and then go and try what you saw, you will be very confused at least.
