Absolutely! I mean, the effort of wasting 10 seconds alone to adjust your settings is gargantuan! I mean, in this day and age our content SHOULD be handed to us on a golden platter and we should never be bothered with such trivial things as having an entire article dedicated to where to get the content and how to add LED lights to the back of our televisions while the damn thing is showing, right?

thats why hdr and dolby vision was invented. sayang di nila na utilize yun..

If you look at the resources and objective of the combined human army, the strategy was correct.



the cavalry should have been used on the flanks (or one flank).
the catapults should have been firing continuously to deplete enemy numbers (hindi kasi dapat sumugod yung cavalry)
all strategy gamers KNOW to put ranged troops at the rear. 
the wooden spikes should have been IN FRONT of the unsullied.  with their spears and the wooden spikes slowing down the dead ...
basically, it was in the script to decimate the dothraki and unsullied because there is a golden company enemy yet to be fought

Nagulat din ako nung sumugod yung Dothraki. Parang nag suicide mission. Pero maganda nga naman yung effect nung unti unti nawala yung flames.

Panakot o pang shock value lang sila. Saka dehado daw masyado golden company kapag  nakaharap sila sa open fields

There is light cavalry and heavy cavalry, each with its own unique use and attributes.

The humans did put the heavy cavalry in the flanks. The Knights of the Vale were with Brienne and Jaime. Dismounted though, as these knights would be better off using their armor as added protection as a holding element vs a fast and agile enemy.

Dothraki are light cavalry at best (very similar to Mongols, Huns, Scythians, etc). Light cavalry is typically at the front of the line leading a charge (or in this case, a very costly feint), particularly at enemy infantry NOT in an entrenched position or lacking anti-cavalry weapons like pikes (i.e. exactly like wights).

Contrary to popular belief by war movie watchers, the use of light cavalry in this episode was textbook.

* * *

I do agree that they should've used the trebuchets to send more Greek fire into the enemy, but they had to allow the Dothraki to retreat (which they probably expected, as this attack was to draw the NK's main contingent in).

* * *

As I've said, the humans' strategy was not to outlast the Night King's army but to draw him out into pitched battle and try to get lucky.

This isn't Helm's Deep where, if they could withstand the siege, they survive and win.  They had to use their forces the best possible way.

^Thank you for that, very informative.

But is it still textbook to send the light cavalry into the dark when you don't even how many you're up against?

downloaded the 5.2gb version of this and it was very good. sa dark scene malinaw sya..

also watched the entire episode with recap,

ang purpose ng dothraki bakit sila pinauna with melisandre's spell para lang daw sa manonood para magkaroon ng hope. hahaha tapos biglang nawalang parang mga bula.

according sa spoiler na article na pinost ko dito dati si cersei talaga last na kalaban nila. mukhang nagkakatotoo lahat..

oo nga e, unknown yung sinugod nila.  at least, use the light cavalry to break the enemy charge.

yes, they were not trying to last in a siege.  but i would say, buying time is paramount.  (if they are railroaded, noone is going to be around to save) 
wasting troops is callous when they already know they are outnumbered by a lot.

Like I said, charging into an unknown and unseen force - no less, a force who can kill & transform them into their own .......... not the best strategy there is.

But heck it's a TV movie - killing the mighty Dothraki horde just like that, shows how puny they are to the undead horde.

Based on the teaser trailer for Episode 4, it seems like Dany is still in command - either she doesn't believe Jon's story or the two of them plan to resolve things after they defeat Cersei.

Makes me wonder, if somehow Dany goes dark-side and becomes a "mad queen" herself - which gives cause for her death in the finale.

Baka nauna na ng tumakbo yung Dothraki vs the horse, not necessarily naman na sabay tumakbo

ambilis tumakbo ng dothraki pabalik.  magkasunod lang sa kabayo.
