Well, if you take an example like the Mountain/Viper fight in GoT I can take another fight to illustrate my example. When Khal Drogo was being "saved", and one of his lieutenants tried to "rescue" him and Jorah stood guard. A knight in full armor, against a faster more agile enemy. Do you remember how that went? The fast one hacked his blade into the knight, and the armor withstood it. Then he was fucked.

I definitely see your point, but if you managed to play on the strenghts of the knights they were basically unbeatable. The First (and Second tho unsuccessful) Siege of Rhodes are good examples, as well as the siege of Malta. I don't remember which of them, but at least in one of these instances a group of Knights defended a hole in the walls for days and just butchered every wave of attackers.

Well, at Arsuf the arabs skirmished and bombarded the Crusader Column for a long long time. A lot of the horse archers unmounted to gain accuracy, and after a long while the Hospitaliers countercharged out of the lines, and basically butchered everything they could see - and the arabs couldn't flee fast enough.

You are much safer with armor, and if you are able to get into close combat with your opponent they're basically fucked.

Any way, strategy is always important. At Hattin the Arabs played on their strengths because the crusaders became bold, and at Arsuf the Crusaders did the same.
User avatar #234 - theshadowed (06/21/2014) [-]
Yeh the knights in a straight up fight would win
But then look at Crecy
But it was never a straight up fight. It never is. Its why the crusades were lost.
You out-manouver your enemy, they're fucked
Battle of Teutonberg, the Teutonic mounted cavalry was led on a dance of death by Lithuanian horse archers. Kept them from the battle, and nearly destroyed them. The knights didn't even get close.
Knights are extremely vulnerable until they get to close quarters as well. Agincourt, slaughtered by archers while they wallowed in the mud
And when you get close, if you're quicker, they're again, fucked.
Again at agincourt the English archers butchered them in hand-to-hand. The Knights couldn't move, while most of the archers didn't even have armor, so didn't get bogged down.
And I know its not legit, but the Mountain/Viper fight from Game of Thrones

Yes? What about it? The battle of Hattin had nothing to do with the disadvantage of armor etc, but rather of plain stupid religious leaders who thought marching through the desert without supplies and heavy armor was a smart idea before a big battle because "God were watching over them"
User avatar #232 - theshadowed (06/21/2014) [-]
Well one of the main reasons for the defeat at Hattin was how the arabian horse archers could easily evade the European heavy knights
Same with the Mongol invasion of Europe.

But then, Daeron was not a fighter, and couldn't lead for shit. If it wasn't for Bloodraven, they'd have been fucked. Daemon led an army, but I will be damned if he couldn't lead the kingdom. His generosity and merciful nature would have kept the people on his side, but his power as a military ruler would have kept rebellions and filthy bandit fucks in check. Because where Daeron would ignore it, or do little, Daemon would fix it himself. He would go the fuck out there and give those who threaten his people the business. A king needs to be strong, man. It's the same thing people always say with Renly. "He was gentle and kind, he would be a perfect king! No one WOULD rebel!"

A king needs to be able to fight. If Daeron knew how to kick ass, a rebellion would never happen, because they would fear his prowess in battle, and as a military commander. If Daemon was the king, no one would have rebelled again, because they'd be fucking with the wrong dude.

Well yeah he is north.

Now. Listen here you nancy pants cow tit. Daemon motherfucking Blackfyre should have been king. A strong and smart motherfucker, given the sword wielded by all Targaryen kings, honourable, kind to his friends, and to his enemies, with Targaryen parentage on both sides. Daemon could lead, Daemon would protect the kingdom. Over Daeron II, who just dicked around with learning stuff, never giving half a damn for the kingdom. At the Redgrass field, Daemon fought like the fucking Warrior himself, while Daeron piss farted around in Kings Landing. Daemon fought a long battle with someone, and then tried to lead them to safety, for giving him such a fight. Daemon died protecting his enemy out of admiration. You tell me thats not a king, a king who will fight for his kingdom, and show mercy to those his enemies. Daemon was also older than the actual king, and since he was legitimized, that should have made Daemon the king.

He was the greatest of the Blackfyres, the truest of them all. Maelys was a fucked up mutant, barely worthy of the name Blackfyre.
User avatar #261 - theshadowed (06/18/2014) [-]
Daemon was the only good Blackfyre.
He was killed after escorting Corbray off the field. Brynden 'The Motherfucker Bloodraven' Rivers, baddest fucker in Wetseros, killed him after that. And his 2 sons.
Daemon was polite, but like shit he was good. He dumped the 7 Kingdoms into a brutal civil war because he wanted the throne.

Don't you talk shit about ma homie Daeron. He was called the good for a reason. Just because he was a warrior, doesn't mean hes a bad king. Robert was a warrior, and he was a shit king. Daemon was a warrior, but only a warrior. Daeron was learnt, which is a refreshing change in kings, and he bought peace and prosperity to the 7 kingdoms after Blackfyres tried to fuck shit up. And look at his sons. Baelor Breakspear and motherfucking Maekar.

Oh and who brought Dorne into the 7 Kingdoms?

Well, Robert didn't really "lose" it, it just so happens his sons were not his sons and Joffrey was shit. (Tommen is A-OK.) Ned shouldn't have been king though, he would have done justice and shit, but he would have been assassinated quick by nobles, because he'd say "FUCK YE" and actually be good at his job. Every king after Aegon held it, but it was only when one was particularly batshit crazy, it was truly lost to them. Robert lost it not through war or conquest, but because his sons were not his own. This makes Stannis the rightful king. Would he make a good king? Maybe not. Ned said the same thing. But it is his by right of conquest for the Baratheons.

I don't think Bran will become king though. BUT. Aegon 6 being a Blackfyre is the theory I mentioned. If he is a Blackfyre I will hail that bitch all up and down the continent, as hypocritical as it is, But damn it, I love the god damn Blackfyres.

Aegon earned it. The Mad King lost it, because he went batshit fucking crazy and was going to destroy Kings Landing. Tommen didn't right off Robb or Stannis, not even Joffrey did, Joffrey ran off in the fighting. Robert fought in the battles, Robert fucking wrecked the supposed best warrior in the Seven Kingdoms. Robert fought, Stannis fought, Joffrey and Tommen are children, neither played any big role in their defeats. Tyrion beat Stannis, Walder Frey beat Robb. Robert fought tooth and fucking nail. Stannis held the absolute shit out of Storms End, then later beat VICTARION FUCKING GREYJOY during Balons rebellion.

Aegon also kept it peaceful for the rest of his life, but it barely remained peaceful. The Dance of Dragons and the Blackfyre Rebellion took a pretty big toll on that shit. That said, if a theory about a certain character in the book comes true, I will not support Stannis at all.

Yes the Baretheon brothers are masters of War, which is why I respect them. But if Aegon lost it, then unfortunately so did Robert. Robert fucked up. He lost the thrones barely 20 years after he won it. Robert shouldn't have been King. Ned should've taken it.

The blackfyre and dance of dragons were bad, but the War of the 5 kings and roberts rebellion are definitely worse

My favorite theory is that bran will come back down and be King of the north. I'd like that.

User avatar #244 - EdwardNigma (06/18/2014) [-]
Well yeah he is north.

Now. Listen here you nancy pants cow tit. Daemon motherfucking Blackfyre should have been king. A strong and smart motherfucker, given the sword wielded by all Targaryen kings, honourable, kind to his friends, and to his enemies, with Targaryen parentage on both sides. Daemon could lead, Daemon would protect the kingdom. Over Daeron II, who just dicked around with learning stuff, never giving half a damn for the kingdom. At the Redgrass field, Daemon fought like the fucking Warrior himself, while Daeron piss farted around in Kings Landing. Daemon fought a long battle with someone, and then tried to lead them to safety, for giving him such a fight. Daemon died protecting his enemy out of admiration. You tell me thats not a king, a king who will fight for his kingdom, and show mercy to those his enemies. Daemon was also older than the actual king, and since he was legitimized, that should have made Daemon the king.

He was the greatest of the Blackfyres, the truest of them all. Maelys was a fucked up mutant, barely worthy of the name Blackfyre.
User avatar #261 - theshadowed (06/18/2014) [-]
Daemon was the only good Blackfyre.
He was killed after escorting Corbray off the field. Brynden 'The Motherfucker Bloodraven' Rivers, baddest fucker in Wetseros, killed him after that. And his 2 sons.
Daemon was polite, but like shit he was good. He dumped the 7 Kingdoms into a brutal civil war because he wanted the throne.

Don't you talk shit about ma homie Daeron. He was called the good for a reason. Just because he was a warrior, doesn't mean hes a bad king. Robert was a warrior, and he was a shit king. Daemon was a warrior, but only a warrior. Daeron was learnt, which is a refreshing change in kings, and he bought peace and prosperity to the 7 kingdoms after Blackfyres tried to fuck shit up. And look at his sons. Baelor Breakspear and motherfucking Maekar.

Oh and who brought Dorne into the 7 Kingdoms?
User avatar #264 - EdwardNigma (06/18/2014) [-]
Daemon knew his fucking shit son. He put the kingdom into civil war for his right.
Daeron was smart, but he couldn't lead. It was easy to take advantage of things, because he wouldn't do a fucking thing about it. He brought Dorne into the 7 kingdoms, yeah. But at the cost of the civil war, marrying off whats her face is the straw that broke the camels back for Daemon.

BUT NO WE HAVE THE DESERT SHIT HOLE.
User avatar #265 - theshadowed (06/18/2014) [-]
No, Daeron could lead. Daemon could only lead in war. Daeron was a King for peace. Getting Dorne didn't start the rebellion, Daemon getting bitchy did

The desert shithole that fought off every Targaryen invasion, and the only kingdom currently loyal to their true dragonlord kings
User avatar #266 - EdwardNigma (06/18/2014) [-]
But then, Daeron was not a fighter, and couldn't lead for shit. If it wasn't for Bloodraven, they'd have been fucked. Daemon led an army, but I will be damned if he couldn't lead the kingdom. His generosity and merciful nature would have kept the people on his side, but his power as a military ruler would have kept rebellions and filthy bandit fucks in check. Because where Daeron would ignore it, or do little, Daemon would fix it himself. He would go the fuck out there and give those who threaten his people the business. A king needs to be strong, man. It's the same thing people always say with Renly. "He was gentle and kind, he would be a perfect king! No one WOULD rebel!"

A king needs to be able to fight. If Daeron knew how to kick ass, a rebellion would never happen, because they would fear his prowess in battle, and as a military commander. If Daemon was the king, no one would have rebelled again, because they'd be fucking with the wrong dude.
User avatar #267 - theshadowed (06/18/2014) [-]
But Daeron achieved through marriage what a century of bloodshed could not.
I believe that a King can be a King without being able to fight. There are more important characteristics to have in a monarch. Which is why the Baratheon brothers were all awful kings.
Now lets stop arguing about this. It is a book, after all

I know. I ******* know
Twas a good episode

omfg my house at the moment though. So in my lounge there is my younger sister and brother, and my pissed step-brother, 2 step-sisters, step-dad and mum who have been doing Karaoke for the past 2 hours. I don't think my ears will ever truly recover
User avatar #87 to #86 - infernalinsolence ONLINE (12/26/2013) [-]
oh sweet jesus
i feel bad for you man

But yeah. The episode itself was **** imo. Too much going on, not enough explanation. Clara was a brat/twat/prat whatever you want, as usual. "OH DOCTOR WHY DID YOU MAKE ME LEAVE OH DOCTOR WHY"
i get like he was trying to save her, and **** , and he didn't say, because she'd object, but like. wow. shut up you twat. let me just take your wardrobe so you can die already **** off.
It was rescued by the last 10 minutes, though.
User avatar #88 to #87 - theshadowed (12/26/2013) [-]
I dunno. I liked the whole Doctor as a defender part, that was nice. i think the aliens should've started beating the **** out of each other as well though
User avatar #89 to #88 - infernalinsolence ONLINE (12/26/2013) [-]
Would have been amusing

I'm still figuring **** out
I warn you though
I'm a cautious gamer
I get too immersed in games and treat it as though it's real life.
User avatar #98 to #97 - theshadowed (12/26/2013) [-]
Cautions good. Means I won't have to keep healing your sorry arse
I've played it before, and I always pick up some kind of melee weapon. So I am constantly accidentally pissing of witches, tanks, etc by running into them
User avatar #99 to #98 - infernalinsolence ONLINE (12/26/2013) [-]
I've not played it. Heard about it though so I got excited when it was free.
Closest thing I've played to it's probably Hellgate.
User avatar #100 to #99 - theshadowed (12/26/2013) [-]

User avatar #101 to #100 - infernalinsolence ONLINE (12/26/2013) [-]

What in Davy Jones’ locker did ye just bark at me, ye scurvy bilgerat? I’ll have ye know I be the meanest cutthroat on the seven seas, and I’ve led numerous raids on fishing villages, and raped over 300 wenches. I be trained in hit-and-run pillaging and be the deadliest with a pistol of all the captains on the high seas. Ye be nothing to me but another source o’ swag. I’ll have yer guts for garters and keel haul ye like never been done before, hear me true. You think ye can hide behind your newfangled computing device? Think twice on that, scallywag. As we parley I be contacting my secret network o’ pirates across the sea and yer port is being tracked right now so ye better prepare for the typhoon, weevil. The kind o’ monsoon that’ll wipe ye off the map. You’re sharkbait, fool. I can sail anywhere, in any waters, and can kill ye in o’er seven hundred ways, and that be just with me hook and fist. Not only do I be top o’ the line with a cutlass, but I have an entire pirate fleet at my beck and call and I’ll damned sure use it all to wipe yer arse off o’ the world, ye dog. If only ye had had the foresight to know what devilish wrath your jibe was about to incur, ye might have belayed the comment. But ye couldn’t, ye didn’t, and now ye’ll pay the ultimate toll, you buffoon. I’ll **** fury all over ye and ye’ll drown in the depths o’ it. You’re fish food now.

Oh, I see you're British. I apologize if I've come across as being a bit if an ass. I thought I was arguing with an American (no offense to them, but I've found them to be the most unbearable group on the internet and have very little patience when talking to them)
PS Is that a dildo in the previous comment?
