A gram of subtlety in a world of brutes?
 
 
Hale:
Major, several soldiers are complaining that this second episode is too cruel, that the battle field in only for brute force attacks. They say that this battle is unfair for soldiers that are skilled but not rich enough to have millions of arrows ...    
 
Deakins:
Well Captain, war is war. No mercy, since in the rules the number of arrows is unlimited, it is normal to have unlimited attacks!
 
Hale:
Yes, but there is no way to differentiate skilled but poor soldiers from soldiers who shoot at random hoping to get the aim?
 
Deakins:
It is complicated to estimate the efficiency of attacks just by measuring the number of shots. But if soldiers are willing to, we might organise during Episode 3, a parallel shooting session with only 100 000 trials allowed for each images. We will ask them to give there best shots after, lets say 10N trials for N going from 1 to 5. Then we will have a way to evaluate the stamina and the sharpness of the soldiers.
