10 years old boy is about as far away from your average soldier as Gregor Clegane, Meribald hardly speaks for everyone. Again I have given the descriptions of the armies of the WOT5K, all of them are vastly different from Meribald and all of them mention trained and equipped men fighting in learned formations.

I shall rather believe the descriptions of armies we are given in the text by people like Tyrion over a random idiot who went into the war with kitchen spoon as a 10 years old

And again, Robert has not seen a Dothraki in his life. He knows nothing of them.

The real world is not in question, but the logic and common sense are. If you have no armor and your horse has no armor and you ride into a pike wall with volleys of arrows raining upon you, you are dead in every single world.

the Two Rivers Longbow is the weapon of choice among Two Rivers folk. Typical unstrung bows are a hand or two taller than the person drawing them. Black yew is considered the best wood for constructing a Two Rivers Longbow while the bowstring is constructed of tightly wrapped cords coated in a thin layer of beeswax to protect it from the elements.

It has a range upwards of 500 paces and is so powerful that it can puncture clear through mail and oftentimes out the back end as well.

ParallelsEdit
The Two Rivers Longbow is no doubt a reference to the English Longbow, which is also made of yew with a very heavy draw weight and able to penetrate armor.

I'm not saying they win in our world. I'm saying they win in theirs. What.....you think essos had engineers capable of building pyramids but never thought to put a spear wall and archers against the dothraki?

You can chalk it up to bad writing if you like. But the writing on the world at issue says they win.

And no we really didn't spoil anything major. If the septon is even in the show its gonna be for ten minutes. Its not part of the plot. Just downtime talking.

Didn't the ancient Unsullied armies win a fight against the Dothraki though? Given how outdated the Unsullied are in comparison to Westeros armies wouldn't it make perfect sense that they would win?

I haven't read the books but watching the show the impression I get is that Westeros is Europe in the late medieval era and Essos is more like the Americas only someone dropped a poor mans version of the mongols in the middle and no surprise they win over there. I get the feeling of a whole bunch of primitive, disjointed city builders on Essos with the military technology being vastly inferior to the west.

The Dothraki to me feel like the 6 foot 8th grader who beats up on all his 4 foot tall mates and then gets his ass kicked when he plays against the seniors who are all bigger.

Again though, this is based entirely on watching the show and seeing the different technologies in use and nothing on what is written in the books!
