Li_Shengsun, do you want to move discussion to Guan Yu thread or warriors thread (or another of your choosing)? Personally I would suggest Guan Yu, just let me know which thread and I'll post my answer there (and pm you to let you know)

Dong isn't been hostile, his perfectly happy to keep discussing it with you - it's just that discussion has evolved past a "What if" scenario so this thread isn't the best place for the discussion any more! :D
Have a question about a book or academic article before you buy it? Maybe I have it!

How about what if Cheng Gong and Zhang Mao never betrayed Cao Cao? I can see Cao Cao conquering the central plains a lot faster, and this may indirectly cause Liu Bei's death, but it can also maybe not change things at all? If Cao Cao resecures his initial territories i can see him invading Xu after Liu Bei takes over. If assuming Liu Bei is spared i can see nothing really changing, and that the entire thing of him going over to Yuan Shao happening after rebeling against Cao Cao. If he is not spared and executed then i can see pretty much the land being ultimately divided into 2 by sun and cao. What are you guys thoughts on this?
