That is the contradiction I pointed out earlier. Jin Yong said one thing at one paragraph and then another thing at the next chapter. He wrote about they (Guo Jing & Jin Lun Guosi) being almost equal, but then he threw in Jin Lun Guosi plus so many top fighters against Guo Jing while saying he was holding them all really well. When the Mongols were increasing their power, Guo Jing was also doing the same. It would take a really long time to determine the real winner.Originally Posted by duguxiaojing
The part where Guo Jing surprise them in how easily he pawned one of them, it's a legitimate fight tactics. The Mongols getting weary didn't mean they were holding back. It just meant, they would be more careful, which I think should make it more difficult for Guo Jing to win. It still meant all out (all the tricks, all the power, etc).
I don't think I've ever mention Guo Jing was dominating his enemies. That was never the point. The example I gave merely showed that he was able to keep them at bay for a long time. Since I always assume Ni Moxing, Xiao Xiangzi,Yin Kexi are better than Daerba & Huo Dou, I assume Jin Lun Guosi mix with Daerba & Huo Dou would be weaker than the mix at Mongolian camp, therefore, I repeat, if the mix at the camp faced extreme difficulty to actually defeat Guo Jing, it's quite impossible to see the mix at the manor can pull it off. I think it should be easy to understand this point.
Anyway, you don't have to convince me that Guo Jing should in trouble. Xiao Feng was facing trouble fighting two enemies who were not on his league (at shaolin), Guo Jing should be in bigger trouble fighting someone who was on his league plus other elite combatants.
