  1. Yeah because this dude has totally been in life and death sword fights before so he would totally know. I find it hilarious that a modern day "swordmaster" thinks he knows what actually medieval combat was like because he never got a real job and wanted to play with swords his whole life.

  2. Feels a bit unduly harsh on the Witcher; you're forgiving of magic/dragons etc. but Witchers are not human they're mutants, Geralt is faster and stronger than Renfri's men, and to a degree he's showing off. The first kill is all about making clear what they're up against, and yet for some reason they still try and fight (possibly because Renfri has an unnatural ability to inspire loyalty, if Stregobor is to be believed). To review this you really should have carried on into the Renfri fight where Geralt is mostly controlling the entire fight but doesn't want to kill the ferocious and almost suicidal Renfri (who does all the classic suicide spins). Still a good video, it just felt like you ignored what is happening narratively but then considered it in later (arguably much worse cough Last Jedi *cough*) fight scenes.
