What rhymes with lance?
Apparently if Lancer had never met Saber, he would've been persuaded by Kayneth to use hit-and-run strategies. Is this true?
Ah yes the guaranteed to lose card
From Word of God apparently, so it depends on how you view that sort of thing. Me, I only look at the original source
Being lancer is suffering
You got something on your face.
Can this be one of those threads?
That is exactly the first thing that came to my mind.
Somewhere, somehow, in the is big crazy universe a Lancer rolled an natural 20 and had a happy ending.
I believe the idea was that if nobody was honorable enough to engage Lancer in a knight's duel, He would have been willing to fight dirty dishonorable opponents. But then Saber showed up and fucked it all up because it gave him a duel to lust over.
It's a shame too, because hit and run Lancer could probably have won the grail. Just keep doing chip damage and running, the unhealable wounds will eventually add up enough that Lancer could overpower his opponent. Or if they're physically weak (Caster/Assassin) just cheap shot them with Buidhe for a quick kill.
Stop lying to yourself. Just stop.
Let it go. He has suffered enough-
