Who was more advanced in the 17th century and before? The Asians or the rest of the world?
The Japanese had Samurai swords and were highly skilled with them as well as with many styles of fighting. And the Chinese had many differenct types of weapon... such as nunchucks, shinais, sais, swords, long staff, escrima, short staff, et cetera. Yet the Greeks on the other hand, had fire that could not be put out with water, and the Romans had catapults - like those in the film "Kingdom of Heaven" - and sling-shots and so on. Both the Romans and Greeks may have had more power than the Asians, but it does not necessarily mean they were more advanced. So which were more advanced - for their time, in arsenal and strategies, et cetera - ?

The asians, the native amaricans and the africans, the rest of the world didn't even wash on a weekly basis and started a bunch of wars

by far it would have to be the asians. i mean look at how early the chinese were using gun powder. or think of the technique of the samurai sword. if the chinese or japanese had the desire to conquer other lands i dont think the romans or greeks would have had much of a chance.

the 17th century pretty much belonged to the Arabs. (the Caliphs of middle east) they were strongest and had best civilization and most power.
