Title: Legends S2 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: The Red Jaguars on October 05, 2012, 12:41:58 AM
We just finished the S1 version of the thread, now onto S2! Here are a recap of the rules:

Rules:
- You can eliminate a contestant from the list twice a day. Once a contestant is gone, they will be removed from the list and won't be brought back.
- You do not need to update the list, I will try to update it at least once on every page.
- Once we get to the the top 25 contestants, we will start ranking them.
- Have fun

I will start it off in the next post. ;)

First to go is Kerry from the "Spanish King" temple run. The girl moved so slow and it took her an eternity to get where her partner was left off. She had trouble navigating through the Ledges too! And once she assembled the Monkey, she went into the wrong direction! Mediocre player indeed.

I want to eliminate a certain Purple Parrot, but because I really despise this player so much, my first elimination goes to Kim (Missing Weather Maps). I think everyone knows by now how I feel about her. :roll:
Title: Re: Legends S2 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on October 05, 2012, 01:09:39 AM
I'll do the honors of getting rid of Claude from "Lost Lion Tail." Don't think I need to explain this one. :roll:
Title: Re: Legends S2 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: The Red Jaguars on October 05, 2012, 01:01:18 PM
I was going to get rid of Claude in my first vote, but like with PP319, I hate Kerry so much I just had to get rid of her. :roll:

Next to go is Renee from "Queen Nzinga". All she had to do was either plow through the wall to the Mine Shaft or find the obvious half-pendant, which she does neither. No excuse to not find the half-pendant in season two at all. She was a horrible contestant.
Title: Re: Legends S2 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on October 05, 2012, 01:06:35 PM
TRJ, Claude was the PP player that I wanted to get rid of. ;)

Just like with you hating Kerry, I had to get rid of Kim right away because I despise her more.
Title: Re: Legends S2 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on October 05, 2012, 03:46:06 PM
Gracelyn from "Sacred Ring" goes next. She was just too slow and too clueless.
Title: Re: Legends S2 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on October 05, 2012, 06:19:09 PM
If Gracelyn goes, then so does her partner Brian (Sacred Ring). He's my second elimination of the day. Brian made the big mistake of entering the Ledges from the Crypt.
Title: Re: Legends S2 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: The Silver Monkey on October 05, 2012, 07:14:32 PM
I'm getting rid of Cristina (Battle Plan). There's no excuse for missing an obvious half pendant, especially when your partner signals it to you!
Title: Re: Legends S2 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: The Bandit King on October 05, 2012, 10:28:33 PM
Aqila from "Golden Pepperoni" goes next. No explanation should be needed here.
Title: Re: Legends S2 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: The Red Jaguars on October 06, 2012, 10:51:01 AM
Its a brand new day and I am going to get rid of Kevin from "Montezuma". This temple run could've been an easy victory if he wasn't so obsessed with the direct path. He could've easily avoided the Crypt and Medusa's Lair guard, and he might've done a better job in the Shrine than Kelly. He goes next.
Title: Re: Legends S2 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on October 06, 2012, 10:58:59 AM
I'll make my first elimination of the day and it goes to Tony (The Stone Head of the Evil King). I'm referring to the Blue Barracuda Tony TRJ and NOT the Snakeskin Boots Tony. ;)

It should NOT take you nearly half the run to complete Medusa's Lair. I don't care how hard the room is or how many snakes were required, it shouldn't take you that long to complete the room. No excuse for that AND his Storeroom pot punching method was bad. Just a bad player.
Title: Re: Legends S2 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on October 06, 2012, 04:16:20 PM
Today, I'm getting rid of Ryann from "The Walking Stick of Harriet Tubman." There is a reason you follow your partners path with less than 2 pendants. I know we'll never really know how she would have done, but she has no reason to be on this list anymore.
Title: Re: Legends S2 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on October 06, 2012, 11:45:20 PM
I almost forgot to make my second elimination! :P

Amber (Silver Cannonball) is next to go. She was slow and backtracked into the Observatory. That was bad and she deserves this elimination.

Speaking of Montezuma, I'm going to get rid of Kelly. Girl couldn't assemble the monkey to save her life.

Its a new page, and a perfect time for an update. And I was going to get rid of Kelly next too. Thanks for doing my work, Count Chocula/TSM!  :mrred:

Next to go is Jessie from "Silk Sash". She was slow and didn't even last in the temple long. Not to mention, she entered the Observatory and wasted time on a useless detour. She was forgettable anyways.

Jonathan from "Silver Cannonball" goes next. He was slow and forgettable just like his partner was.
Title: Re: Legends S2 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on October 07, 2012, 10:35:10 AM
Speaking of slow and forgettable, it's time for Heather (The Stone Head of the Evil King) to go. This is a good stopping point for her.

And I'm surprised both Montezuma players went so soon! :o
Title: Re: Legends S2 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: The Red Jaguars on October 07, 2012, 04:57:08 PM
I got rid of the "Montezuma" kids because I thought that the run was just to disappointing of an outcome even though they were alright for the most part. Maybe they could've gone later, but I don't see them as top 25 contestants at least. ;)

Its a new day, and out goes Jenelle from "Shriveled Hand". She was slow and forgettable and didn't even last long on top of that. This had to be the most average team in the temple.
Title: Re: Legends S2 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on October 07, 2012, 06:13:27 PM
If we're going that route, then next to go is Bobby from the same episode. He was a little slow and got clueless in the Mine Shaft of all places.
Title: Re: Legends S2 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on October 07, 2012, 09:27:14 PM
Steven from "Silk Sash" goes next. He wasn't that fast, plus he messed up with the column in the Observatory. If he had put it together correctly, it wouldn't have been a dead end.
Title: Re: Legends S2 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on October 07, 2012, 09:35:26 PM
I think the Observatory WAS a dead-end in that run PPF. I truly believe that run was setup in a Golden Goblet way.
Title: Re: Legends S2 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: The Bandit King on October 07, 2012, 09:53:04 PM
Jessica from "Cosa Rara" can go next. She moved way too slow compared to her partner, and it was squarely her fault that the run ended badly.
Title: Re: Legends S2 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: The Red Jaguars on October 07, 2012, 10:48:29 PM
For my second vote, I am going to get rid of Derrick from "Captain John Smith". Like Heather in "Stone Head", he didn't last in the temple long and he wasn't even that fast to begin with. Maybe this run wouldn't have ended in triple capture if he didn't take the bottom floor right away. I don't remember him anyways.
Title: Re: Legends S2 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on October 08, 2012, 07:10:23 AM
TRJ, you might want to look at your last update. There should be some girl players above Missy's name, but they somehow aren't there. Girls like Olivia-Emma, Tabitha, Leah, and Whitney all disappeared from the list when they weren't even eliminated. :|

Speaking of Whitney, she's my first elimination of the day. She wasn't bad per se, but she just moved too slow. Plus, she missed a semi-obvious half pendant. I commend her for tackling four snakes in Medusa's Lair though.
Title: Re: Legends S2 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: The Red Jaguars on October 08, 2012, 11:30:37 AM
It looks like the list got cut off when I copied it over to the next page. I am not sure how that happened.  :?: But that explains why I didn't see Whitney and I knew she wasn't eliminated already when I eliminated Derrick.

And Jason from "Icarus" has overstayed his welcome on this list. He had three minutes to bring the Broken Wing out, and he uses that time to screw around and backtrack to unnecessary rooms. Not to mention, with about a fifty seconds on the clock after grabbing the Broken Wing, he shouldn't been able to bring the artifact out of the temple with plenty of time to spare. But a bad temple plan and his idioticness is what caused this temple run to be a loss. Goodbye.
Title: Re: Legends S2 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on October 08, 2012, 03:37:10 PM
List updated above to include the girls that had not been eliminated yet at the time of that post. I didn't delete those that were eliminated after that post, just to save everyone the confusion. We can take care of the rest of the eliminated contestants next list update.

As for my elimination today, Ashley from "Imperial Robe" goes next. She wasn't a bad player or anything, she just moved a tad slow.
Title: Re: Legends S2 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: The Red Jaguars on October 09, 2012, 12:50:02 AM
Thank you for fixing the list. On my next update, I will be sure to make sure all the right names are eliminated and no names go missing. ;)

Second vote time. Leah from the "Blackfeet Chief" temple run can have the honors of leaving next. She was just so slow and moved like a slug on the bottom floor. If she moved a little faster, than Brandon might've had enough time to bring the Jeweled Necklace out of the temple and we may even had our first PP victory on hand.
Title: Re: Legends S2 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on October 09, 2012, 12:59:16 AM
It's Bone Necklace, Mr. Fogg Up King. ;)

As for my elimination, Marie from "Lost Lion Tail" goes next. While she was MUCH better than her partner, she wasn't that fast. Plus, she didn't try all three books in the Crypt, and she missed tossing the rocks in the Rock Quarry.
Title: Re: Legends S2 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on October 09, 2012, 03:58:14 PM
I noticed that Amber and Christina made their way back onto the list. They were eliminated on the first page. ;)

Time for C.J. (The Golden Stallion of Ali Baba) to go. He didn't last long and did nothing memorable.
Title: Re: Legends S2 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: The Red Jaguars on October 09, 2012, 05:25:04 PM
Yeah, it looks like some of the previous page eliminations made its way on the list. But I am going to update the list soon anyways, so no worries there. ;)

My first vote will get rid of Rachelle from "Attila the Hun". While she may have had bad luck with her layout, she really could've picked the pace up a little bit in certain rooms. There is no reason why some rooms had to take so much time to complete. Plus, she was is so forgettable and I hardly remember this episode and run.
Title: Re: Legends S2 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on October 09, 2012, 06:17:36 PM
Tabitha from "Dr. Livingstone" goes next. She wasn't that fast, and she's just plain forgettable.
Title: Re: Legends S2 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on October 09, 2012, 08:57:01 PM
My second elimination goes to Danielle (The Mask of the Man in the Iron Mask). She might not have been bad, but she made the deadly mistake of entering the dead-end Medusa's Lair. Any chance of a win was killed with that move, plus she's forgettable.
Title: Re: Legends S2 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: The Red Jaguars on October 09, 2012, 10:57:38 PM
Time for a big list update.

Monica from "Ivory Elephant" should go next. She wasted too much time in the Ledges, assembled the stone column in horrible fashion, and was just plain slow in the temple. Just a below average player that wasted too much time.

Michael (Missing Eye of David) had trouble with the puzzle in the Observatory and Medusa's snakes didn't trigger very quickly either. I think it's time for him to stop.
Title: Re: Legends S2 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on October 10, 2012, 07:16:07 AM
^ Bad elimination IMO.

Time for Jim (Priceless Portrait) to go. There's no doubt he looked like a great player, but he had the unfortunate luxury of being one of those players that lasted only three rooms. Because of that, it's time for him to go.
Title: Re: Legends S2 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: The Red Jaguars on October 10, 2012, 09:12:45 AM
I don't think Michael is a bad elimination. I mean he lasted in the temple about as long as Jim and I don't even remember him anyways. Although I thought it was awesome how he pulled two books at once in the Crypt. :P

Benjamin from "Queen Nzinga" can go next. He only lasted four rooms in the temple, plus he didn't move that fast and wasn't great at all anyways.
Title: Re: Legends S2 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on October 10, 2012, 09:48:55 AM
Well, I think Michael went too early because I thought he was fast, smart, and he lasted long enough to get a good idea of his skill in the temple. Not sure if he was top 15 material, but he was definitely a good player. I don't remember him struggling with the Observatory and Medusa's Lair was just Medusa's Lair with the error.
Title: Re: Legends S2 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: PurpleParrot4Life on October 10, 2012, 09:50:59 AM
Emily (Missing Eye of David) can join her partner in the eliminated contestants list. She missed the other half pendant, seemed confused in the Laser Light Room, and then got captured in the next room over (not that the temple guard actually stopped her). Since she didn't progress any farther, I can't assess if she was really a better contestant than I'm giving her credit for. But either way, based on her performance up until she got captured, I'd say now is a good place for her to stop.

I feel that your elimination was uncalled for as well. Being taken out of the temple quickly does not make a contestant a bad one. He cleared the rooms in 27 seconds, which is very impressive. As soon as he got into each room, he went right to completing the objective without pause. I'd say that he was faster and smarter than Michael from "Missing Eye of David," so if my elimination was unjust, yours is even more so. I'm sure that if he had gone in second instead of Kristen, you'd be raving about him and giving him as much praise as Zac and Jarrid. Just remember, we're looking for the best contestants.
Title: Re: Legends S2 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on October 10, 2012, 03:09:11 PM
Yes, but just because someone only lasts three rooms, doesn't mean we have to cut them some slack. Some of those players well.... weren't the best. There are better players out there than Jim or Danielle from Iron Mask. Forgettable, didn't last long, those are pretty justified eliminations to me. We're not missing the point, we just have our reasons behind elimination someone.

With that being said, Kelly from "Snakeskin Boots" can go next. Compared to Tony, she was just average. She did a decent job in the short time she was in the temple, but there were better players than her.
Title: Re: Legends S2 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: PurpleParrot4Life on October 10, 2012, 04:19:39 PM
I am fed up with people saying that my choices for elimination are unjust. Unlike what some people are insinuating, I don't judge people's performances based on what everyone else thinks or whether they are fan favorites. I base my eliminations on the contestants' ability to progress through the temple in a decent amount of time. Just because a person lasted three rooms doesn't mean that they were bad contestants, and just because a person had a successful run doesn't mean that they were great contestants. I'm also not saying that we need to cut some people slack while grading others more harshly. I'm just trying to standardize the players so that we can justly and fairly get down to a final where only the best are left.

Speaking of that, I feel that some people are using a double standard when comparing my eliminations with those of their own. I eliminated Michael because he spent 1:30 clearing five rooms, which is about 18 seconds per room. That is terribly slow, but he wasn't as fast as others are making him out to be. Jim, on the other hand, was taken out of the temple in under 27 seconds and cleared 3 rooms. That is an average of 9 seconds per room. I'm not surprised that Jim was eliminated, nor am I saying that either were terrible contestants. But when it comes down to it, Jim did not hesitate or have as much difficulty as Michael did. So if we were to compare the two, I'd say that Jim was the stronger contestant. However, according to this thread, my elimination of Michael is "unjust," whereas Jim's elimination is deemed as "fair." That seems downright cruel and hypocritical.

I am trying to be as fair and just as possible, and I use as much rational thought and reasoning as I can before making any comments on this thread. I try to be civil in how I respond to everyone's comments. However, it appears that everything I do and say here is somehow "wrong." I joined this site with the intention of having intellectually stimulating conversations with other fans of the show, not to be berated by unmindful comments about my opinions. I am very upset with this treatment, and I'd appreciate if everybody would think more before hastily jumping on what other people have to say.

Post by: PurpleParrot319 on October 10, 2012, 06:35:28 PM
PP4L, please calm down. We don't need any heated arguments in a topic like this. Opinions are opinions and eliminations are eliminations, let's just leave it at that.

My second daily elimination goes to Peter (The Electrified Key of Benjamin Franklin). You would think he would learn from season 1 that the direct path doesn't work (not including Shaka Zulu). He tried it in the Pit and he tried it from Medusa's Lair. That was the fatal mistake in this run. If it wasn't for that, he could've recorded a historic solo win. Peter should've known better, even if he was a competent player.

Guys, just remember it is okay to agree or disagree with some people's votes or opinions. But there are better ways to respond though than calling them bad or unjustified eliminations. It is getting harder to figure out who to eliminate next because most of these season two contestants had redeemable qualities in their own ways. I kind of agree with PP4L in regards to Jim. He may have not lasted long in the temple, but the boy was sure fast as hell. No doubt that he would've done better than Kristen if he went in second. At the same time, I kind of agree with PPF too because he didn't last long enough so we can't assume that he would've kept the same pace that he did before getting taken out of the temple. He could've ended up like Ashlie from "Dolley Madison" who screwed up big time in the Dark Forest. Not that I think he would've though. Now, no more fighting or else I will bring John and Tia here.  ;) :mrsilver:

My second elimination goes to Brian from "Napoleon". Just like Kelly and Jim, he didn't last in the temple at all. Not that it was his fault, but he really wasn't that fast to begin with and screamed like a girl in the Laser Light Room. It was Carly who was the star of this run.

Of course, leave it up to you to drag John and Tia into this. :P

Anyways, my next elimination is Paula from "Silver Horseshoe." She may have moved at a good pace, but she was just plain average. There are way better contestants than her still on the ist. She is seriously overrated.

We don't need any heated arguments in a topic like this. Opinions are opinions and eliminations are eliminations, let's just leave it at that.

I'm not making this into a heated argument. I'm simply stating that I've been feeling unfairly accused of making "bad" decisions, when in reality I'm just being thorough and thoughtful in my decisions. If you haven't noticed, up until the elimination of Jim, my eliminations have been the only ones to get challenged for being unjust. And I wasn't saying that his elimination was unfair; I was saying that it was hypocritical for my decision to be considered unjust, whereas his elimination was not taken under scrutiny in the same way.

And how very noble of you to say that opinions are opinions, especially when you were the one to call my elimination of Michael on this thread "a bad one" in the first place. Just keep your comment in mind, because to make such statements, one must live up to them as well.

Guys, just remember everyone's votes are opinions and its okay to agree or disagree with them. Some people might think differently of a contestant than others. I agree with PPF that Paula is overrated and not that great, while others might regard her as a good contestant. That's the fun part about these elimination games is that people have different opinions and end up with different results. If it wasn't this way, then the results would always be predictable and the game would be no fun at all. So please, no more arguing at all and if you disagree with someone, put it in a way so it doesn't get taken the wrong way. Don't make me start playing "The Golden Cricket Cage of Khan" now. ;)  :mrsilver:

Kendra from "Ali Baba" goes next. I don't even remember her temple performance at all. Maybe her team got screwed over by a potential production error, but she is just not that memorable and didn't make significant progress in the temple either.

Nick (Leopard-Skin Cloak of Annie Oakley) was smart to take the ladder in the Mineshaft, but he didn't clear any rooms himself. The center-of-the-temple artifacts were hard to reach, and this episode came pretty close, but I feel this team should have at least reached the artifact in this episode. Plus, his putting the key from the King's Storeroom into the hole at the front of the room kind of sealed his fate in this elimination. I'm sorry if you feel differently, but the fact that the other contestants remaining on the list completed at least one room's objective in the temple makes Nick seem like a better choice of elimination.

Joshua from "Imperial Robe" goes next. Just like his partner, he wasn't that fast. Plus, he's just plain average compared to who's left.

My first elimination of the day goes to Chris (The Walking Stick of Harriet Tubman). While he was more attentive than his partner, he never did anything memorable. I thought he was just another average player.

Post by: The Red Jaguars on October 11, 2012, 10:13:29 PM
Second vote time and I honestly never thought Brett from "Dr. Livingstone" was that good. All he had to do was ride an elevator and pull a snake out of a jar. Not to mention, his temple exit was all over the temple and this team should've had more than five seconds left on the clock at the end of the run.

I think Josh (The Cracked Crown of the Spanish King) has overstayed his welcome. He's my next elimination. Josh wasn't bad, but like Jim, he didn't last long. Besides, Kerry was the "star" of this run. :roll:

Brad from "Ivory Elephant" goes next. He was just average at best, and he didn't take the Shrine/Forest passage. Even though victory was slim for them anyways, it would have saved them some time.

Some players have really gone unnoticed and one of them is Chris (The Golden Pepperoni of Catherine de' Medici). Judging by the list, I think he somehow got 25th place!

Anyway, like other players, he only lasted three rooms. That's not a good enough assessment of how good or bad a player is, so I'm eliminating him.

We are at our top 25 now and to kick it off, I will get rid of James from "Nathan Hale". He was fast and was much better than his partner, and he even pointed out the half-pendant to her! But he didn't last long enough and nor was he memorable or remarkable at all.

Just barely in the Top 20 is Joel from "The Enormous Iron Nose Ring of Babe." He may have scored a victory free of temple guards with plenty of time left on the clock. But he didn't even have that many objectives to do. And when he did, (like assembling the monkey), he did it rather poorly. He was a fast guy for sure, but he wasn't that great.

Robert from "Emiliano Zapata" was part of a team effort for sure, but he didn't last that long in the temple and his speed was average. Besides, I credit Olivia-Emma more for the win. This is a good stopping point for him.

Brandon (The Bone Necklace of the Blackfeet Chief) might have been better than his slow-ass partner, but he still moved at an average pace and his exit was a little unusual. 18th is a good stopping point for him.

Elizabeth (The Levitating Dog Leash of Nostradamus) has overstayed her welcome on this list, in my opinion. Personally, I think that position #17 is far higher than I would have expected for her. She cleared 4 rooms in a minute, and she made it seem very laborious. Not a bad contestant, but the other people left on the list are far better.

This is getting hard now, but I am going to get rid of Justin from "Cosa Rara" next. He was fast for sure and did a good job with the central shaft, but his performance in general wasn't really significant or memorable. The other remaining contestants did something that was significant. Just missing the top 15 would be good for him.

Just making the Top 15 is Kristen from "The Priceless Portrait of the Polynesian Girl." While the temple run was exciting, and while she did grab the Portrait in the bottom of the central shaft, she moved kind of slow. She can stop here.

My second vote goes to Angela from "Johnny Appleseed". I have to give her credit for having a very close loss, especially after taking that slow ass elevator. But she did waste quite some time climbing the wall in the Pit. Had she moved a little faster there, then this might've been an "Emiliano Zapata" type win.

Ashley (Golden Earring of Henry Morgan) was a solid contestant: unphased by the temple guards, smart, and constantly moving forward. However, I think that this is a good stopping place for her, since the other people left on the list had pretty spectacular runs in comparison to hers. Ashley continued to pull the blocks off in the Laser Light Room, even after she revealed the white light, and then she found the key in the Dark Forest but never tried to use it. These minor missteps are what guided my decision to stop her at position #13.

Just missing the top 10 is Carly (The Two-Cornered Hat of Napoléon). While she moved at a good pace, the only real objective she had to complete was the Silver Monkey, which she kind of struggled with. Plus, she didn't actually hit the Shrine-Shaft actuator. That was costly. I think this is a good stopping point for her.

My first vote goes to Matt from "Dolley Madison". He was a very fast guy in the temple with one of the most badass completion of the stone column. But he could've had a solo victory had he not tried for the direct path. Furthermore, he didn't last long in the temple and the remaining made some significant progress. Start off the top 10 would be good for him.

Shane from "The Very Tall Turban of Ahmed Baba" can take the #8 spot. He was good, but he wasn't that great. He moved sort of slow and hesitated quite a bit. Plus, the path he took was totally lucked into. He's not a bad player, but he's just plain average compared to who's left.

I was debating between Olivia-Emma and Jason for this elimination. I personally enjoy the Applewood Amulet run more than the Levitating Dog Leash run, but since we are looking for the "best contestant," I will not be basing my decision on that criteria.

Both had very similar paths and pretty similar outcomes. Each had to clear the King's Storeroom and the Shrine of the Silver Monkey en route to the upper left corner of the temple. However, Jason also cleared the Room of the Mandarin Hand, and his partner cleared the Laser Light Room. Jason's use of the Dog Leash to cross the Pit was rather ingenious, and even with having to clear an extra room than the Applewood Amulet run, they finished 15 seconds more quickly.

As much as I enjoy the run, Olivia-Emma (The Applewood Amulet of Emiliano Zapata) deserves to stop now. She passed up the half pendant in the Pit. Additionally, she only completed the King's Storeroom and Shrine of the Silver Monkey objectives. When she entered the Viper's Nest, she nearly pulled a "Get the pepperoni!" moment and started heading for the elevator to the Mineshaft. It was quite lucky that this team only needed to traverse the upper floor, and it was also lucky that the team didn't end up in triple capture. Having 1:50 to clear two rooms and get out was more than ample time, yet Olivia-Emma made this finish a nail-biter of a finish. The seventh position belongs to Olivia-Emma.

Just missing the top 5 is Tony (The Snakeskin Boots of Billy the Kid). He moved quick, but he almost blew the run with his exit. He also had a hard time aligning his body with the middle painting in the Jesters' Court. I think Tony should've finished behind Olivia-Emma (who should be in the top 5 or even 3 by the way), but whatever.

PP319, may I ask you why you feel that Olivia-Emma deserved to be in the Top 3, while Aqila is considered one of the worst contestants of Season Two, even though both passed up their respective artifacts in the upper left room? I understand that Olivia-Emma had enough time to locate the Amulet, whereas time ran out before Aqila could correct her mistake. However, that disparity seems odd in my opinion. Could you explain your thought process or reasoning behind your statement?

EDIT: (And just to clarify, I am not saying this to turn this into a heated argument, nor am I saying that your opinion is wrong. I am just curious as to why you feel this way.)
Title: Re: Legends S2 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on October 14, 2012, 11:45:43 PM
Olivia-Emma was fast, smart, knew what to do, and brought the Amulet out in about 35 seconds from the far left. The layout might have looked simplistic, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing. She might've passed the half pendant and struggled to find the Amulet upon entering the Viper's Nest, but her overall performance overshadows those two mistakes. Besides, she didn't even need the half pendant and this wasn't the first time a winning effort saw a player struggle to find the item in the same room space: Taylor from The Helmet of Genghis Khan.

There, you happy now? I gave you my reasoning, now go eliminate Missy for no real reason. /sarcasm :roll:

Post by: PurpleParrot4Life on October 15, 2012, 12:02:33 AM
I don't understand why this run's "simplistic design" was "not necessarily a bad thing," while other runs are completely degraded by people on this site for going for the direct route and for having rather simplistic, straight-forward layouts (particularly in Season One and early in Season Two). I enjoy the Amulet run, but I don't see how such a disparity can exist between this run and the other "simplistic designs" without any scrutiny or questioning.

Also, why does Olivia-Emma's two mistakes get "overshadowed," while other people's few blunders are not given redemption? What allows certain errors to be forgiven, while others not? [For example, Jonathan (Battle Flag of William the Conqueror) may not have gotten a win in his run, but he at least grabbed the object. He successfully cleared six rooms, utilizing all of the shortcuts he was given access to. Yet, because he did not go to the Chamber of the Sacred Markers from the Room of the Ancient Warriors after trying the first armor, Jonathan is given much grief. To me, his one error was overshadowed by his great success in the rest of his run; however, that opinion does not bode the same in other people on this site.] Again, I'm not saying that your opinion is wrong; I just want to understand your line of reasoning.

And if you think I eliminate people for "no real reason" then you are sadly mistaken. Even if you disagree with my choices, I give more thorough and detailed explanations for my decisions than any other person engaging in this thread.

Post by: The Red Jaguars on October 15, 2012, 12:13:10 AM
Personally, I think Olivia-Emma's place is fine or maybe one higher at least. She was fast and had the closest win on the show, but she also made a couple of potential mistakes like passing the half-pendant of life that was obvious and a couple of hesitancies that could've cost her. But really, all of these top 10 players were great and it is hard to rank them.

Kicking off the top five is Shem from "Henry Morgan". He was very fast and also had a ridiculous fast completion of the stone column in the Observatory. He also grabbed the Golden Earring in the last few seconds of the run, and it was was awesome to see him excited about even reaching it. But the remaining four contestants were temple run winners, and I thought they made it this far for one reason or another. Besides, the Room of the Mandarin Hand did open from the King's Storeroom for him. He could've had a close loss had he went straight into there from the King's Storeroom.

Tarrah's mistake was heading the wrong way from the Shrine of the Silver Monkey. Jason completed far fewer tasks than others in the remaining four. Missy wasted 10 seconds climbing up the wall in the Pit and spent a few too many seconds trying to find the key in the right-hand tree in the Dark Forest. Ty dropped his pendant and completed the Viper's Nest objective, which was unnecessary because the Mineshaft's elevator was already accessible.

Since I asked this before but did not get a response, I will ask again: What allows certain errors to be forgiven, while others not? What constitutes a mistake to be "overshadowed"?

My answer to your question: Certain errors can be forgiven if it was an honest mistake, especially if it had no lasting effect on the overall outcome of the run. Errors can also be forgiven if a mistake was made at the start of the show (like Jennifer trying to sit on the Throne in Lost Gold Mine).

With Tarrah, she moved at an average pace. She also went the wrong way once and her Pit jump failed. Jason and the two remaining players didn't have many mistakes and they deserve to be in the top 3. That's why I gave Tarrah 4th.

The reason I taking this "seriously" is because I'd like to know how and why other people hold opinions different from my own. Unlike the way my "bad decisions" were treated, I try to understand what other people are thinking and why we may not see things the same way. I try to be as thorough and elaborate in my own explanations so that others can get a sense of where I'm coming from. I want to understand on what foundations people make their judgements and opinions, and I want to be as accurate as possible in my understanding of others opinions, especially when the two opinions do not agree. So what if I ask a lot of questions? That's my way of trying to understand where other people are coming from.

Look, its fine to agree or disagree with other people's votes. But we don't have to call other people a troll just because they share a different perspective then us. The whole ppint of this game is just for fun and at the same time talk about Legends. We can do this without having to drag ourselves into a debate that turns into name calling. At the end of the day, this final list is not some list that will be cast in stone and it will be used as a potential tournament down the road. I don't agree with some of these rankings either, but that is what makes these games fun because you don't know who will end up on one position. Or else it will be too predictable and anticlimactic all the time if the choices were always obvious. So please no more arguing and if you want to tell us how you feel, just so what me and PPF do at the end with our personal rankings. :mrchameleon:

Yeah, they're just opinions. We don't need to be over analytical and take everything so seriously. There are no "rules" on how to like a contestant and what to think of them. And no one is saying you can't like him or her. It's just a game. Some contestants I wanted ranked higher, and some contestants I wanted ranked lower. And other are either gonna agree with me, or disagree with me. I like contestants for different reasons. Just because two contestants have everything or nothing in common, doesn't mean we have to feel the same way about them. And I'm not bashing anyone or telling them they're wrong. In a few months from now, no one will even remember this game. And we won't be posting in this thread anymore. Let's just have fun and play this game, and not over think everything and get into the "politics" if you will, on these contestants.

Anyways, I'm gonna reveal my vote now. I voted for Missy from "The Lucky Pillow of Annie Taylor." I thought she was a wonderful contestant, even if she didn't move as fast as the likes of Gator or Jarrid. And her emotion and excitement in the end added to the greatness of this run. Ty was a great player too, who had a very memorable beginning to his run. But I just liked Missy a little bit more. They're both great contestants, and I wouldn't have cared who won.

And it looks like Missy is our winner! I admit that I voted for Ty because I thought his temple performance was awesome and I loved how he was able to recover from dropping his pendant. I thought that this would've been a very close match-up, but it looks like Missy wins this in a landslide!
