- I walked into a red poop in binding of isaac ._.
- someone get me a bandaid i cut myself on the edge
Feels good man...
Oh poor you, I lost my FUCKING HAND GOD DAMN IT!!! GET YOUR OWN BAND-AID AND CALL 9-11 WHEN YOUR OWIE IS BETTER!
Is there a reason you're trying too hard, like is it a thing?
I was fucking playing along, jeebus.
Oh so it was a thing, thanks for clearing that up. Trolls have have been too numerous around here lately
- "few archers his what they aimed at" "…
"chainmail was impenetrable"
"the average sword was designed to pierce chainmail"
A lot of people neglect the fact that a spear was cheap as fuck, just a big sharpened spike on the end of a long enough (and not necessarily straight) bit of wood.
An arrow, especially a bodkin, required a lot of delicate work to shape the point as well as fit it to the shaft which did have to be straight, and you'd have to fit the feathers which weren't necessarily easy to come by.
The metal used in the spear would be more expensive weight-wise but the actual difference in man-hours gone into making either of them is vast, and everything had to be made by hand
**profesionalcrab used "*roll picture*"**
England spend a huge part of its economy just producing arrows during the hundred years war.
because of the sheer quantity, rather than the cost of them
Few standard archers hit what they aimed at
They used cheap arrows
Longbowmen almost always hit what they were aiming at
Their arrows were insanely expensive
arrows were cheap to mass produce, and could vary in type massively
archers were very accurate, it's like saying snipers now just fire in a massive crowd in an attempt to hit things, it's simply not true
longbowmen aren't really a thing, the longbow was a weapon that emerged in the early middle ages and archers simply used that instead of traditional warbows, as it was far better
It was deployed en masse for the affect of fear, which considering arrows could go straight through chainmail and if the correct tip was used, through the padding too means people suddenly are not quite so fond of charging
Longbowmen aren't really a thing, but English longbowmen had trained so extensively with them that their bone structure changed.
I regards to this assumption that the Longbow was used next to more mundane styles of bow on the battlefield, it's simply not true
The Longbow became -the- bow for the English, and phased out all others in the process, and as you might expect, were not some special elite that all the soldiers began banging their spears into the ground chanting 'Longbow, Longbow, Longbow' when they arrived...
English Longbowmen were the snipers
Archers were collectively an LMG
Not really, the English Longbow was the result of fighting against constantly armoured foes, and a way to help turn the tide against charing cavalry, who until then were effectively king of the battlefield
It simply replaced the generic warbow, and was never deployed alongside other bows, as it was the only bow used by the English at the time
