Did ancient Greece really have strong female Spartan warriors?
>>
They didn't even have strong male warriors. The Spartan legend is a myth.
>>
>>4831458
I wouldn't say strong, but their part time duty was soldiering.

yes spartan women where famously sluts and once the appetite of women for sex is fed, women become rational like men, so they can partake in male activities. The problem is that the sexual appetite of women builds up in a matter of days, so they need to be well fucked every few days, so that does not make them good soldiers on the battle ground.

why did athens hide behind their walls if the spartan warriors were weak
>>
>>4831518
Because he's an Ath*nian boylover
>>
>>4831518
Because everyone believed they couldn't defeat them
Also because Athens had invested almost exclusively in their navy.

fucking retarded dumbjew nigger. Nobody cares about muh women or muh nigger in video games. It's the cringey narrative being pushed down our throats. It's forced and thus annoying.

I mean yeah sure, maybe if it was trying to be historically accurate but come on man.
>>
>>4831518
Mostly because of their reputation, but when it came time to justify it, they couldn't. The Thebans for example kicked Sparta's ass and so did the Argosians.
>>
>>4831532
^this
>>
>>4831458
It's is a GAME!
>>
>>4831532
The thebans kicked the spartans ass when the spartans were on the decline and they had a great general that had a great strategy.
The argosians beating the spartans was not a cakewalk and it happend very early in history when sparta was not at its apex.
>>
Most men these days would not be fit to be a warrior so.
>>
>>4831458
Women weren't a part of the military but were still expected to be trained in combat. They thought this would make their children better fighters.
>>
>>4831458
Women in Sparta were delegated to landlords, upper nobility, and other things for the very rich, I don't have any recollection of them being in any part of the military.
>>

>Getting triggered over Assassin's creed
It's pure trash, and on top of that never claims to be a historically accurate game. A loose historic setting does not mean history has to be followed by the book. Whatever the normies will eat up, they'll put in it. I'm honestly baffled why you care about such a shit series.
>>
>>4831512
>neckbeards getting triggered by having the option to play as a woman in ancient Greece

Assassin's Creed's has a female protagonists for a while now. I'm more pissed about their lack of quality control and pumping out new games every year if anything.

>Fallout 76

You can play Fallout 76 on your own though.

>Battlefield V

Was more pissed about her wearing woad like she was LARPing as Braveheart (which is also historically inaccurate) and had a prosthetic arm, which would make using a gun very difficult.

>Beyond Good and Evil

Don't play it, don't care.
>>
>>4831512
im bothered that theres any character customization in a game franchise centered around large sprawling narratives, i dont give a shit that you can choose to be a gorl

>You can play Fallout 76 on your own though
The butthurt mostly comes from the always online part. You can play solo but not offline.

Can't wait though
>>
No but it's also a game where you play as an assassin with magic items

Yes, and Pieces of Eden are real technology used by a super non-human with a triple-helix DNA called Jupiter.

It sells without them as well. Which is how Asscreed successfully sells before, it only got dull due to shitty Unity.

Spartan women had many rights and were notoriously strong-willed. This is something that Athenians observed in disgust.

They weren't warriors though kek
>>
>>4832012
You can choose to play male and female in Syndicate as well, but that game didn't sell, at least didn't sell well. Forced Diversity is never the selling point to make people playing it.

Despite the fact it's AssCreed, it's piqued my interest. Namely because it's the closest thing to a sandbox game set in those periods and areas.

Daily reminder that Ancient Greece is one of the most misogynistic collection of cultures ever. It was common for men to literally despise all women. Just look at all the shit Hesiod wrote about them.
>>

Yeah, via the database. Or would you say to your kids that there are secret tombs hidden beneath churches in Italy?

Call of Duty: WWII actually sold beneath its expectations. All the Call of Duty games have been failing to meet sales expectations for the past five years.

Expect the trend to continue now that they've decided to continue milking the dried up whore that is Black Ops.

Seriously, even Infinity Ward had the good sense to end the Modern Warfare series after three games.
>>
Oh yeah and updated OC.
>>
>>4831465
They were competent enough to be highly sought after as mercenaries.
>>
>>4833154

Here's a pie chart of CoD sales. Ask you can see sales have been steadily falling since MW3. The two latest entries, WWII and Advanced Warfare, both sold worse than World at War and Modern Warfare even though vastly more time and money was put into producing the former two.

They were far left though. Pretty similar to a communist dictatorship.
>>
>>4837264
>Pretty similar to a communist dictatorship.

They were a monarchy though. The only remotely left-wing/progressive thing about Sparta was its greater social mobility for women (largely spurred on by the fact men spent so much time at war).
>>
>>4837213
Carthage hired a Spartan to train their army to defeat a mercenary uprising.

I believe there were other Spartans serving as mercenary generals too.
>>
>>4837283
I meant in the sense of collectivism and complete subordination of the individual to the State. They also didn't use money and the State provided them with land and distributed resources.

King Agesilaus II and Clearchus.. Tainaron was pretty much a hub for mercenaries.

The Rennaisance didn't have tanks or hand gliders either but I don't remember this level of screeching about that.

>what Ubisoft said he was

A tanned white guy with a beard?
>>
>>4834262
I don't know, looking at facial structure they're pretty similar. It's just that the Ubi Socrates is slightly tanner and has black hair, which is most likely true to real life considering this is Greece we're talking about.
