In this blitzkrieg type of battle, speed is determinant. You need to strike quick and strong, and get away with your objective as quickly as you came in.
Not really fancy for the shounen ways (you take down one enemy at a time with sheers numbers), but more realistic.
In the Blitzkrieg battle plan, you're supposed to strike your opponent when they are not expecting you and strike them fast and hard, catching them completely off guard.

The fact that the Marines have called in such a great number of troops and expecting Whitebeard to have a powerful force coming, its not a Blitzkrieg. The battleground is decided, they have an idea of when the enemy is striking and they're prepared.

If anything this battle is a medieval pirate battle, where pirates charge into a fort.

And it has always been wise for commanders to stay behind their troops.

Wow this is nothing like a blitzkrieg lol. And I personally like the saying that when the general draws his sword the fight is already lost. Although I guess it might not be true in one piece since general is unrealistically powerful piece.

I knew from the beginning of the war arc that Whitebeard would be betrayed by someone within his troops, either a traitor or a silver medalist hoping to dethrone and replace him. But I don't think even an impalement could stop the Whitebeard. I expect it to slow him down, maybe, and lead to his eventual death, since it seems this arc is his end, but I don't see him going down now. I think he might go down fighting, giving his life to thrash all his enemies out of the way and save his men. Especially since we haven't seen much use of his power just yet... I think it would be suicide and a waste not to show him in action before kicking his bucket over.

Besides, it would only make sense for a spider-themed pirate to attack with poison, would it not?
Well his name is Squado the vortex spider if I recall right. Vortex doesnt sound like poison to me, more like some kind of teleportation ability :3 This would also explain how he was suddenly back on WBs ship.

So maybe WB was already dying from unknown disease.
And this betrayal was in fact a secret order from WB himself. He prefers to die by the sword on the battlefield, than an old dying man in front of the enemy.
Like a pirate version of Benkei.

A awful traitror being in fact a most loyal friend would totally be Oda's style.
You know, the way you make it sound seems like what Oda would put; then again, my money's on the betrayal theory since it would sound out of place if Squado was the one to do it.

Nice to see a shonen fan who haven't lost their sense of reality sometimes for a change, lol

So guys i've been thinking, In order to keep the four yonkou in check, Does the WG have a substantial presence in the new world? Do they have significant stronghold or is the new world simply dominated by pirates? Since most of the admirals and shichibukai usually seem to be in the first half of the grand line.

Oars Jr, was actually an example of what happens to those that just charge in... and Had they just charged they probably would have taken even more damage by the kumas since they would not have taken the time to to look at the situation and spread out
It really depends on the power a person has. If for instance, Whibeard would have rushed in with his power, it wouldn't be very easy for the WG to stop him without giving a significant number of sacrifices. And, that sacrifices may not limited to only the WG, but to Whitebeard's side as well.

Oars mostly had a brute strength, the kind that a similar kind of person earlier had (Saul). Yes, we know the scale is different, and Oars was bigger and probably stronger. But, the weaknesses are still there. And, unlike Saul, Oars is more brute and less intelligence.

I think, Sengoku's plan took into account Whitebeard's tactics of moving forward with caution. Otherwise, he would have arranged his forces accordingly. There were many among those Marines, that were put there for the sake of increasing the number.

Really, until the kuma's showed up, Whitebeard's side was doing alright... Jimbei and iva were covering two shicibukai's, Marco can counter an admiral, Vista could clash with Mihawk, and so forth... sure joze was in a bit of trouble, but they weren't by any means "being crushed"... it was only when the Kuma clones showed up did things start looking grim... and THAT's when Whitebeard decided to join the fight... and get betrayed...
Even before, there was kind of a stalemate. Luffy's appearance stirred things since it created the effect of a suprise, on mostly Sengoku's side.

The New World is dominated by pirates, mainly the 4 Yonkou. I'm sure the WG has outposts in the New World and scouting ships, but the majority of their forces are in the first half of the grandline and the 4 seas.

Looks like spoilers will be delayed this week, Nja (usual spoiler source) cant give us information because there is holiday for this day in Japan and 2chan has banned alot of accounts so she will have some troubles to post them aswell.

I guess we wont see spoilers atleast today and perhaps not even tomorrow.

sengoku n wb had an arrangement not to kill ace or wb's crew but to annihilate the new world pirates, the px wer ment for the death of the new world pirates

Akainu told squadro of this whos own crew was originally destroyed by roger, after finding this out + that ace is rogers son he lost all his loyalty, sengoku announced aces bloodline knowing how reckless squadro is

marco tries to go to wb and the commanders are demoralised but wb tells them no1 is strong forever 1 man 1 heart
