They didn't just not show the battles, they butchered them. How are new viewers supposed to know that Tyrion actually fought in the battle(if he even did in this version?). He gets knocked out and then appears in a cart...The fact that they didn't show The Whispering Woods which would have been EASIER to show than just about any other battle in the books makes me feel REAL bad about what we are going to see in the future.
I totally agree with this. I am disappointed that Tyrion didn't seem to fight at all. It wouldn't have been necessary to have him be amazing, just decent, sort of blundering through in fear and with luck. I thought it was important to illusrate that he is brave enough to fight.The Whispering Wood could have been done very dark, showing only the scene around Robb and Jaime. But I suppose nothing is better than badly done, and if the Blackwater is epic it will make up for many sins.
