From looking through Hannibal Barca's battles, I have notice that the users often pairing the Sarissa with Hannibal Barca...however, my question is did he or his army even used the long spear in battle? From what I know of his battles, I never really read any of his battles involving a phalanx like formation and I really don't get the inclusion of a weapon he likely never used in battle. Like, I understand that they needed a mid range weapon, but in history, he didn't really use a Macedonian Pike formation since all of his battles does require a lot of mobility, like at the Battle of Cannae, and having a Macedonian Pike formation doesn't really help with that. I'm pretty sure it might just be me, but it just feels odd...Of course, unless there's some information I didn't know about,
What's on your mind?

So, I have a question about the usage of Mulan on Deadliest Fiction. From what I can tell with the battle with Owain and the disregarded battle with King Arthur, it looks like those two users used the Mulan from the 1998 Mulan animated film which presumably takes place during the Ming Dynasty. However, the original poem suggests that she's from a much earlier dynasty, presumably the Northern Wei dynasty or the Tang Dynasty. So...would it technically be wrong to have Mulan use weapons from a much later dynasty, like the Chinese rocket used in the battle with Owain, or would it need to be specify as to what version of Mulan the user is using?
So uh idk how this works and i need to watch a tutorial on how to make a battle so vote and please send me a tutorial
Excuse me, does anyone know how to add an image on an infobox? What's the image size should be? I'm creating a page on this wiki and i don't know the exact size of the image
I have a question regarding how accurate the crossbow that is often showcased with the Polish Winged Hussars in their battles on here is. The reason I ask this because the picture of the crossbow that those battles often used looks more like a crossbow you would find on like Dungeons and Dragons or some fantasy medieval game and when I try looking for where this picture came from through reverse images, I only find the battles from Deadliest Fiction, making me question how accurate such a weapon really is. I'm also confused as to whether that's a weapon the Winged Hussars would actually use because from a historical standpoint, the Polish Winged Hussars wouldn't use crossbows, let alone ones with the ability to attach a bayonet on it, during their time as they would be using pistols and carbines by this point and not really a crossbow, especially on horseback.
Also, is putting a bayonet on a crossbow even historically accurate? That doesn't seem practical to wield, especially for a cavalry unit like the Winged Hussars.
The Battle Royale showcase the Mayan wielding a sickle, which as stated in the Igorot vs Mayan battle I mentioned a while back, the Mayan didn't have. It also showcase the Mayans using a "barbed spear", which I don't believe the Mayan would have something like that? I'm not entirely sure about that second one seeing as when I hear "barbed spear", I usually think of the Zande's Makrigga, which I doubt the Mayan would have a spear with a barbed spearhead seeing as that sounds kind of impractical to make with obsidian and stone.
Also as a side note, but I'm not entirely sure about the Sioux's "Stone Axe" either. I mean, I'm probably thinking to stereotypically since I would think the Sioux used Tomahawks as well so...I'm likely wrong about this one.
Also, I'm not sure if it's me, but I could have sworn this battle was already in the disregarded battles section back when I edited the Igorot vs Mayan battle into the disregarded battles because I recall that section containing multiple disregarded battles featuring the Mayan Soldier and now it's just the Igorot vs Mayan battle. Was there something I'm missing that it was taken out of the disregarded battles section?
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.
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.
