Being that many, if not the majority of the troops did very little fighting. The elite line breaker units (and this is what made officers of Three Kingdoms so famous, because they lead these units) carry out the bulk of the fighting, whilst the masses of infantry would act in support and pour through whatever hole they make.
So funnily enough, Dynasty Warriors isn't that far from the truth. (well okay, yes it is. But imagine if you controlled a whole unit instead of one person)
Even MengDe's army? I mean in later years, yeah but at GuanDu? Yuan Shu? Lu Bu? Apparently he had an army of 100 000 at that time, well with the Yellow Scarves in Qing..But were they trained?
Yeah.. DW is quite realistic
