Velcorn schrieb:First, if it was a civil war between unicorns and pegasi only, it cannot be safely assumed that earth ponies would cooperate with unicorns at all. I do agree it would make sense because earth ponies are not capable of flight so that makes an alliance with the pegasi more unlikely.And that's exactly why I assumed that unicorns and earth ponies would cooperate since they share a common natural habitat. And that is the surface of their Earth.
Velcorn schrieb:In your next argument however, you are contradicting yourself. You previously suggested putting up a barrier against the pegasi weather because of it's potential use as a weapon against them. This would eliminate any weather for them effectively so they'd have no weather at all or maybe some weather that does go through the shield. In this case, pegasi could simply induce a major drought to cut off their food production and let them suffer under the heat.A countermeasure would be quite simple and yet effective for the unicorns - not raising the sun. And since unicorns are in the defending position, they would have a major advantage. At least they wouldn't have to suffer under the heat and pegasi DO want to see the sun again. In this scenario, unicorns could threaten to doom the entire race if the pegasi refuse to cease hostilities.
Their only possibility might be artificially produced weather if they are capable of that.
Velcorn schrieb:You don't need to argue against the particular options, I was simply implying that it is very well possible to deprive unicorns of their magical power. Thus, there is room left for imagination how a character that is an earth pony or a pegasus could possibly be a threat to Equestria.They would need advanced technology as we have it.
Velcorn schrieb:Well, teleportation is useful, but as of now apparently only Twilight is capable of this which makes it seem to be really hard. Also, the distance traveled isn't limitless; in fact, it is shown to be pretty small.Sunset Shimmer can teleport as well. And I doubt that there is a distance limit of unicorn teleportation. In Twilights Kingdom Part II we can clearly see that Twilight teleports all around Equestria because she's pumped up with Alicorn Magic and doesn't have the ability to control it just yet.
And if you take this ability into consideration, you could also argue that Dashie's ability of breaking the sonic barrier by reaching speeds of over 1234 km/h which is pretty impressive.
Velcorn schrieb:Well, you could simply dodge them by flying out of the way or catch them mid air and launch them back onto your opponent as an air-strikeSure, but a pegasus still would need to make physical contact with it. Unicorns, however, don't have to. They have, like I said yesterday, a pretty impressive range of operation.
