    I mean, Paris was a notorious wuss in the Trojan war in part for being an archer and never entering glorious melee so that's not a recent idea...

    Blame D&D for most ranged weapons dealing unmodified damage.
    Actually, he fought against Melenaus. Apparently he dressed like a bad-ass but was easily beaten.

    D&D seems to spawn many misconceptions of ancient weaponry judging by what I've heard of it.

    in the society in which we live, every single progressive act is always
    brought about at the expense of individuals or groups who are
    thereby condemned to fall under the wheels. Thus because of their
    particularity, because they disregard the organization of society as a
    whole, each of these progressive events means that there are always
    groups who are their victims and who legitimately doubt their value.
    Nevertheless, we may say – and I believe that even the severest critic
    of history would not simply dismiss this view – that we can speak of
    something like progress from the slingshot to the atom bomb. 5 It is
    not by chance that I am willing to apply the concept of progress to
    something as terrifying as the atom bomb, something that is so com-
    pletely inimical to the progress of freedom, to the advance of the
    autonomy of the human species. There is a good reason for this, or
    rather it has a very bad and indeed catastrophic meaning. The fact
    is that particularity will be the mark of all historical movements as
    long as there is no such thing as what we might call a human race,
    that is to say, a society that is conscious of itself and has its fate in
    its own hands.
    As long as that remains true, all progress will be par-
    ticular, not just in the sense that progress will always come about at
    the expense of groups who are not directly involved in it, and who
    have to bear the brunt of progressive changes, but in the sense that
    progress has a particular character by nature.

    So the existence of singularities and QTLs proves that humans will never rise above themselves?

    It doesn't prove anything, but it says a lot about our society

    K, but this seems like the "do we have free will" debate, which involves flipping the table by changing definitions to something more flowery than its actual definition. The human race just means the species of humans, nothing more, nothing less. This isn't wrong, but it's over conceptualizing a simple definition.

    if you write a story in which 'humanity' refers to a 'history', or a 'form of life', which can be 'changed' e.g. by someone like tesla (lol reddit) or hitler, then it is already implicitly being conceived as something more than an abstract biological category. animal or plant species do not have 'histories' in the sense that humans do, because 'history' refers to a domain which is exterior to the purely biological life of the organism. definition is not simple and cannot be 'over-conceptualised'. you (and nasu, and all his subcontractors for that matter, so you're in good company i suppose) are on the contrary criminally under-conceptualising it.

    I never thought Nasu could under-conceptualize something.

    I mean the easy answer is that Archer the class container just doesn’t have the biggest stats.

    Not many servants have like A rank strength to begin with anyway.

    Maybe I'm too old to understand the reference. Why is Tesla always associated with reddit?

    Le ribbit strongly worships him because he was intellectual who said no to dumb women and pursued science. A virgin genius intellectual who was wronged and underappreciated, just like how the average redditor sees themselves.
