I Dont Think Sun Ce Gets Any Credit

Unread postby Tercel_Serenium » Wed Feb 18, 2004 3:36 am

I dont think that Sun Ce gets enuf credit. I mean he did lead Wu for a time didn't he? Then why does all the Victories of Wu go to Sun Quan???

When did he didn't get credit? He was a little brash, yea, but was still great and built the foundation of Wu...

Read the topic "Wu's greatest".

In the poll it asks
Who do you think Wu's Greatest was?

Sun Ce is in the lead currently with 31% of all votes.
so, we do give Sun Ce credit.

I consider Sun Ce a much better ruler than Sun Quan, he was alot more active than his lazy brother...but Sun Ce does get alot of credit he got Wu to were it was...into a good kingdom.

He wasn't mentioned in the story as much as his younger brother, but he did do many great things in his campaign for Jiang Dong. He took out Yan Baihu and Liu Yong. He did those in a matter of a few years, normally it would take a Shu general a while to counquer such territory.

Sun Jian wasn't mentioned as much as Sun Ce though. I think that Sun Jian should recieve a little more credit, though he is very greedy. But I heard in the real history, that he DIDN'T steal the Imperial Seal, it was just a brush of bad luck that he was killed.

So I think Sun Ce would get more credit if he would have lived longer, and perhaps been a little bit nicer.

I agree with you on this one.I think Sun Ce should get alot more credit.I mean Sun Quan lived 3 times as long as Sun Ce.
