On the other hand, more military success for the Bohemians may have encouraged others to begin supporting them who historically held their hand. The Battle of White Mountain. It marked the culmination of the Habsburgs advances after Sablat, pushing deep into Bohemia and finally advancing on Prague itself. With about 15,, men under Count Thurn on the Bohemian side against 27, under Johann Tserclaes, Count of Tilly on the Imperial side, this was the largest battle of the war so far and pitched perhaps the finest commanders either side had to hand at the time against eachother.

The battle itself was something of a desultory affair. Neither side was particularly enthused to fight, with both the weather and the fact that neither side's mercenaries had been paid for some time serving to dampen spirits. In the end, what was meant to be a minor probing attack by the Imperial troops created an unexpected opening for an advance and the entire Bohemian flank began collapsing before anyone had much time to react.
The battle itself was over in under an hour, and the revolt collapsed soon afterwards. The subsequent confiscation of land and property from those on the losing side, and its redistribution to Habsburg loyalists, has seen the Battle of White Mountain become a foundational myth for the Czech people, characterised as the last expression of a free Czech nobility before being crushed by German Habsburg rule.
The reality of that idea, as with much else, is rather more debatable. Could White Mountain have gone otherwise? Perhaps- the disaster that unfurled historically required something of a string of bad luck for the Bohemians after all, but outnumbered and facing a more skilled commander, it's likely that at most the Bohemians could have forced a strategic draw or temporary reprieve over the winter- Imperial troops had taken most of western Bohemia and were in a much better strategic position after all.
In such a world, the revolt would likely have fizzled out in a death from a thousand cuts, rather than the dramatic end it had historically, but without the sort of outside help that wasn't forthcoming at the time White Mountain is probably just too late in the day to change the general course of the revolt.
