    Old Style of Fighting vs. New Style

    The Old Style: Swords, shield, clever tactics (e.g. setting hay bales on fire and rolling them down hills - The Romans), archers, horses and real man fighting - A style of fighting which took skill.

    Or do you prefer the new style?

    The New Style: Guns, nuclear war, no real skill involved compared to the old style (not hating - soldiers do a grand job)

    I personally think there's more patriotism in the old style as it required a great amount of strength and bravery, nowa' days it's just whoever shoots a mechanic piece of metal first.

    Your verdicts?

    I don't think I'll get the chance. Isn't that the same as trying to stab someone looking at the fear in their eyes?

    it's insanely hard to be proficient with a gun. Have you seen actual fire fights? People get 1 or 2 shots in per clip and everyone usually has body armor. Fighting in the modern world is 10x more dangerous and difficult.

    It's my opinion. Of course it's 10x more dangerous! There's nuclear weapons! I was talking about being more brave and skillful - Have you ever tried holding a huge metal sword upright for hours on end? The old wars would last days upon days.

    A sword you can kill one person at a time

    I think many people prefer the "Modern" day style of fighting simply because they feel less inclined to be responsible for their actions. Psychologically speaking, it's harder for someone to stab someone than just pull a trigger. Simply because they aren't "the one" killing in the sense that the bullet did the work for them. Having to actually use like swords and stuff, you receive the feeling of actually cutting through someone's flesh.

    Just my opinion.
