Further to that, I've not stated where your kingdom is to be based in my first post. I want you pple to make that assumption yourself. Since you didn't, may I ask whether you'd choose Zhuge Liang if you're based in Jiang Dong?

Iznoach wrote:Nah, Zhou Yu was indeed a great general (or should we call him an admiral?). However, considering that Sun Ce probably could've succeeded in subduing JiangDong without him, and Cheng Pu and Huang Gai were probably adequate at Chi Bi, I don't see why he can't be replaced...in this place by Zhuge Liang.

Nearly all of the Wu officials wanted Sun Quan to surrender, and ChiBi was a survival battle for Wu. If its your life that depend on it, would you send out just anyone or the best person that you have?
