So, I have a question and this mainly has to relate to how the show did it alongside the battles with the Ming Soldier on here. My question being what is the actual armor for the Ming Soldier: Leather Lamellar or Steel Lamellar? Now I know that Deadliest Warrior had them with Leather Lamellar when they face off against the French Musketeer, but the reason why I ask was that in many of their promotional pictures, in the opening introductions on Ming Soldier vs French Musketeer, and when they are showcasing the Ming Soldier's stats, they are clearly shown wearing Steel Lamellar. So theoretically, which armor would be more historically accurate? I figure it would be the Steel Lamellar since, well, by the Ming Dynasty they were using "guns", so I would think a stronger armor would be better for them, but I wasn't entirely sure since I'm not sure if the common soldier would wear steel or if steel lamellar armor was mainly for higher ranking soldiers while the lower ranking soldiers stick to leather lamellar, as stated in the Ming Soldier vs Maratha Soldier battle.
What's on your mind?
Now, I'm not sure if I'm able to actually do this seeing as I'm a newer user on here, but from what I know of the Mayans, I don't believe the Mayan would have access to a sickle. They do not have the metallurgy to make a sickle like weapon because from that photo User:Samurai234 used, it looks like it's made of metal judging from the rust and Mayans wouldn't have access to metal weapons at their time.
Also, just as a minor note, but the photo of the Mayan Spear User:Samurai234 used is definitely not a Mayan spear. That looks like one of those fantasy spears. Mayans, at least from what I know, should have an obsidian tipped spear.
PS: I'm not sure if I'm doing this right. I'm mostly just doing what others have done, but yeah, I think this match is historically inaccurate.

This battle has a lot wrong with it. For one, it gives the Romans and Franks both non-weapons and weapons which they were using any more. For example, the give the Romans the Dolabra, which while used, wasn't a weapon, with it being a work axe. Beyond that, the Romans are given the Hasta, a spear which hadn't been used by the Legionary's since before the Marion reforms, and it's implied that Caesar's men are Legionary's and not Auxilia. They are also given Lorica Segementata, which is generally accepted to have been adopted by the Romans around 21 AD, though this are debated upon so I'll leave it up to y'all to declare it as proper or not. And this isn't even bring in the Frankish kit. They give the Franks a "Lancea" which is depicted as being a spear with a Flamberge head, despite it being a Javelin used by the Roman Auxilia and never ended up in Frankish hands to my knowledge. And here's the onion. They give Charlemagne and his Franks sets of steel plate armor, roughly 500 years before anything like it existed.
I don't think that this match is entirely unworkable, as if done right, it could be fair close. But as it stands, its just a pig.

There are a number of issues here, with a lot of the equipment for the Yeoman being ahistorical to the specified period in the battle and because the obvious disparity in metallurgy. The Persians are given bronze scale mail, which puts them at a massive material disadvantage when compared to the steel chainmail used by the Yeoman (Which the author horrendously misrepresents in the battle).
When it comes to the Yeomans equipment, the Yeoman is carrying 2 weapons which didn't exist during the time he's specified to be from. The battle states that the Yeoman were from the 3rd crusade and serving under Richard the Lionheart, which happened in the 12th century. This makes the inclusion of the Rondel and Bastard sword improper, with both weapons not used until the 14th century.
There is no way this battle can be made fair. If Asagami starts within range of Lucy's vectors, then she is screwed since the vectors travel faster than her own psychic abilities. If she starts outside the range of Lucy's vectors then its unfair for Lucy because she will obliterated by Asagami's abilities before she gets her in range of the vectors.
Unfair for SCP-076-2. While he does have superhuman speed, reflexes, and agility, the vectors are impossible to dodge on account of the fact that they are invisible and he just doesn't have anything to counter them.
Unfair for Scorpion because of the same reasons as the 076-2 battle.
The blog buffs the unicorns by stating that they are capable of slaying dragons while there is no such story, myth, legend, etc.. saying that they can. While this only appears in the intro of the blog, it seemed to have been enough to sway a couple of voters to use that line of reasoning to vote in the unicorn's favour.
This battle has a number of real issues, and I feel it could be done a lot better. For one, there isn't a section for X-factors and the equipment given is very poorly described beyond weight and length (most of which doesn't seem to be very accurate). While this seems to be technically legal, it's poorly written and could be done better.
Unfair for Saya because Lucy has superhuman speed and four invisible arms that can easily cut through people. There is no way Saya can keep up.
Unfair for Saya because the Flood has a number advantage and she simply doesn't have the means too take them all of them on on her own.

I don't think I really have to go over this one in much detail. The Aztecs were a stone aged people and lacked any consistent form of steel or iron. Because of this, they are completely out matched on terms of metallurgy and equipment quality. And at the same time, most of their weapons don't have to punch or power to consistently break through the armor of the vikings. So all in all, the Aztecs are not quite up to snuff against the Vikings, and it would be unfair to pit them against each other.
WW2 era level technology vs. post-Cold War era technology. The tech gap between Featherston and Rhoodie is just too big. Also Featherston is litterally Confederate Hitler and Rhoodie is a white supramacist, so if you don't supp this challange you support racism.
One that I missed during my series of ME challanges. Yes, Jack does use an SMG in certain cutscenes, but this is because ME2 likes to give characters a standart pistol or SMG during cutscenes regardless of whatever weapon they used during gameplay preceding said cutscene.
I am not a big ancient warfare guy (so maybe Laqy will correct me) but I think that this is a bit unfair because while Caesar is using iron weapons, Leonidas only has bronze.
Same as Julius vs. Leonidas.
Sooooo I cam upon this battle https://deadliestfiction.fandom.com/wiki/User_blog:Lord_Vader54/Season_1_Episode_3:_Left_4_Dead_Survivors_vs_Payday_Crew
And I thought it was an interesting idea. However, I just can't shake the fact that the author used stuff like medkits, pills, and medical equipment etc. Of course, such things can b used in combat. But the author described it more like a gameplay mechanic (using "pills" can give someone health).
I could be wrong and might be overthinking things. But what do you guys think?
P.S. This is the second time I a posting this, so please support so we can remove this inaccurate battle from this wiki :(
They give Hugh a bastard sword, despite the fact that the first swords with and extended hand grips which might qualify as a Bastard sword didn't come around until almost a century after Hugh's death. They also get very basic info about it wrong, like blade weight. Same goes for the Katana, with the battle pretty much falling into the false myth of the Longsword and Katana.
They also don't give Oda any actual armor he used at the time, with their armor being called "Samurai leather and steel". They also give Hugh a "Bucket helmet" (no clue what that is. Is that supposed to be a great helm, or is he wearing a metal bucket on his head he a reskinned TF2 soldier).
There are more minor issues, but nothing massive enough for me to waste space writing about it.
