    Default Modern vs Medieval/ancient Warfare?

    which would you prefer?

    Me i think its more honorable to go into a clash of men where its only you and your sword and if youre good enough you will come out alive...war these days is like a video game. a bunch of people controlling everything from a control panel thats not even on the battlefield and people getting killed from things they didnt even know killed them before they died

    But in medieval warfare,you had to be face to face with your enemy,which i feel makes it a little more honorable.

    Do you really think a greater number inexperienced soldiers usually beat a smaller number of experienced soldiers?

    No I didnít. I simply said that usually, the side with the most men won. I didnít say anything about an imbalance of experience or training or tactics.
