I like the point your making, it would have been a good thing to have addressed more on the show, but I disagree that this is a good defense for their poor performances.
They have spent their whole lives training and this would show in muscle memory, like any fighter. This is a result of awful foresight and choreography rather than a canonical explanation.
The Harpies don't seem to be amateurs but the Unsullied are meant to be elite. Compare Grey Worm's performance to the rest of them. He has the same training, and is experiencing the same sudden freedom, but he made the rest of them look like children in comparison. They also have less testosterone than "whole" men, so if they aren't going through harsh training and getting their nipples pinched off every afternoon, they're actually inferior.
Freedom doesn't mean they're no longer part of an army that you know, has command and shit. And I don't think you really forget how to fight just like how you don't forget how to ride a bike, especially when they keep having to battle here and there. And completely untraining something you been brainwashed into doing since birth? No it's completely justified because the moment they got free all they want to do is hug prostitutes, not be the fighting force they were trained to be their entire lives, but instead of serving a slave master serve someone they truly believe in. The unsullied are all undersized and lacking strength due to lack of testosterone.
They all had their balls cut off before puberty so their growth is stunted. This helps their discipline and they are apparently unbeatable when fighting in formation, but 1v1 they have a strength and size disadvantage vs the average man.
They probably train mostly in their specialist formation. When out of that formation they are undersized, understrength, and inexperienced. I would also like to point out they are the best soldiers in the World, not the best fighters. They reputation comes from their unbreakable resolution and loyalty not their technical fighting skills. Having an army that will not break and run under any circumstances is an incredible advantage on the battlefield.
It makes less of a difference in small skirmishes in the city streets. I'm not able to find it at the moment, but I saw something that explained that in reality, the removal of the unsullied's "parts" would stunt their development making them smaller and weaker than the average person.
There is also no evidence that the Sons of the Harpy are weak sheltered little rich boys. In medieval times the rich were better fighters because they had access to training their entire lives. Also everyone seems to underestimate advantage numbers gives in a battle. Outnumbering your opponent is a huge advantage and the harpies have outnumbered by as many as or In the first ambush scene I counted about 7 unsullied and about 20 harpies in a hallway that was 4 or 5 people wide. You cant form 2 lines four people long to protect both your front and back when you only have seven men.
I like this. A free person learns that their life has value while they are a child, and they have to unlearn their natural instinct to protect their own life during their training. But Dany's Unsullied are only now learning that their life has value. So now, who do you look out for the most, and to what degree, and in what order?
The queen, yourself, your fellow Unsullied, the civilians, the civilians that were former slaves? Before, they fought only for their master, but Dany is supposed to be different than a Master. Sure, we can complain about stuff, but I prefer to see if it can be worked out. Even if something is just bad storytelling, it's always better to find a way to explain it.salwimusveiqui.ga

Dany won't remain Queen if her people don't believe she can provide them with security. Surrounding the Queen and leaving all the civilians to die is just as suicidal as not protecting her at all. She'd be no different than a Master. I certainly found it interesting, and was surprised not to find it here. Looks good. Made a few changes if nobody minds? Put Lost Worlds into non-fiction, as even though most of it is fiction, the premise is a documentary form with the excerpts bookended by commentary. The excerpts are also contradictory in narrative so it isn't a novel.
It's a literary equivalent a behind the scenes documentary with deleted scenes - something you wouldn't include in say the main Star Wars series listing if there was one for that. Also I moved the Vandemonde books into the main listing. It isn't a series for 2 reasons.
The second book is an expeanded version. Different footer question: where's Profiles of the Future? I have several times today introduced a phrase indicating that Sir Arthur Clarke was a gay man of the discrete homosexual variety typical of gay British men of his generation. It has been quickly removed once with an honest commentary and twice under the auspice of some other function. How is it that ANY information implying that Sir Clarke was straight is included without verification, yet any mention of that which is well known amongst his friends and close associates is immediately removed?
This is the same kind of shameful implied deviance to Sir Clarke's true life that drove Alan Turning to suicide. He suffered the false accusations of pedophilia that is common among prominent gay men in the area he choose to live. The least you quick-to-undo homophobes can do is honor the man's true life and focus on verifying he was straight before removing the truth out of respect for the guy!
However, it's important that, even though he was perhaps an intimate friend of Leslie, the article will advance a clear distinction between a pedo and an ephebophile which in the worst case won't be proven or disproven until the "Clarkives" are made public. As to legal bisexuality, Arthur C. I won't speculate. This is a mere citation of the July Playboy as quoted in that book:. I guess I get more and more daring as I get older" [ Bisexuality was discussed. And, of course, we are," Clarke said, adding when asked that he had had bisexual experiences [my emphasis].
