hehe,i love it too!cao cao said that three times and that all were zhuge made him had no disappointment!
:lol: i wonder why he didn't say that fourth times :?

yiling,chi bi were great but i think a greatest must has great duels,great strategies and two sides are comparative :roll:

Well, if it halps at all, the yellow turban menace was not a battle, but a series of small skirmishes and it was the yellow scarf rebellion. Can anyone truly argue with Chi Bi, Xia Pi was but a small battle and yi ling would be great if it was the greatest massacre, but chi bi, the allience, it made for a dramatic naval battle with the major powers clashing.

The northern campaign was my second choice, jie ting, wu zhang, and ding jun shan in one package, but chi bi was the beginning of anti cao-ism (is that even a word...doubt it) for many years in the 3k era. (sun quan wanted shu ti ally with him after he slaughtered guan yu but shu wouldn't so for survival he went to wei for help)

Yeh, but Chi Bi's "romance" added by Luo just made it great to read. Plus I'm a Shu-ist and hate Cao Cao!
