That's not a gladiator battle...
@ImGumby, correct, those are Viking shields.
@ImGumby, Proves its not history class.
@Toxia, and not even one sword just shields
@JAMA, yeah, not sure what they are doing exactly.
@Toxia, they're actually poorly made hoplite shields from Ancient Greece
@ImGumby, oh, looked more like Viking shields to me. But I don't know much about Ancient Greece.
@ImGumby, shield wall!!!! Ragnor lothbrok is a God
@Toxia, or welsh shields
For Honor DLC
@Colorful Nipple, Children of War Expansion
Doesn't at least one side need to be attacking for it to be a battle?
@Jolee Bindo, this is what we call a picture. Gifs or videos would better show the advancement or maneuvering of the two sides.
@Jolee Bindo, down voted you for not realizing that it's just a picture.
@Theelonelyman, Well I mean they are both in defensive stances and I don't see any weapons. Just sayin'
@Jolee Bindo, lmao, it's like watching two metapods use harden.
@Theelonelyman, I don't see a single sword or weapon to make battle with other than that rubber dodgeball. Down voted you for not realizing that there are not attacking materials so there is not battle.
@Runnin with scissors, is a shield not considered an attacking material. Because I'm pretty sure you can bash someone to death with one
@lostnomad, I mean ya but if I have a shield too and just block bashing isn't a whole lot
@Runnin with scissors, Cool! Teachable moment! So this is closely related (and probably trying to teach) tactics similar to the Greek phalanx. While it's true that they used spears and swords to do the whole stabby thing, much of the battle was decided by the two forces pushing their shield walls against one another. It was like a rugby scrum (is that the right term) in a way. Very frequently the winning side was the one to have the endurance in the pushing match. Once the wall breaks, that's when the battle was over. Whether stabbing, knocking over and trampling, or something else, the battle was mostly one or lost in a shield wall's ability to push the other guys over. Since this is a school I suppose we can forgive them for not giving their students sharp bits.
@Canis Arktos, as a Dane interested in old school war more than modern water are I totally understand a shield wall though I don't mind the explanation :). The battles were lost by which wall broke first not which pushed the other over. If you have 60+ pushing behind you the more important thing than pushing is breaking the first line and pushing through a gap and expanding your shield wall inside of theirs. In terms of this "battle" ya I guess it would be pushing. When anything past a skirmish encountered each other it was the first location of the shield wall that broke that would be the most important and that usually was due to slashing or stabbing unless a charge was ordered.
The shields are free but the sword is DLC.
Pfft, my school is even better. We do live-action League of Legends and only two people have died. Beat that scrub
That's a phalanx.
Can't tell if this is a gym or a history grade at stake.
Wow this new real time strategy game looks great when is it supposed to come out?
That's a Viking battle, still cool doh
But, with no arrows, you only need front row layers... this is all sorts of wrong
You know your school sucks when you have to seriously exaggerate to make it sound cool
We had that at my school, during Latin class. I was in charge of the strategy.
@A pet named Steve, Did you win?
@Commandshark, It ended up in a mess, and I think in the end one team enslaved/hunted the other. We did not do this again. (and sorry I saw as my pc was shutting down that you had sent me messages on steam, so I'll check them out when I boot it up again. It's 5 am... So much for "just trying borderlands2 for a little bit")
@A pet named Steve, Yeah, guess you had a bit of fun in it. By the way, Borderlands 3 is confirmed as going to be a thing eventually
