First to go is Karissa from "The Enormous Feather of the Me Linh". This girl tried her hardest to make sure that this run wouldn't end in a win. David left her plenty of time and a clear path on the bottom floor, and only for her to walk along it and acting like 3 minutes is enough time to screw around. She also got lost in a simple room like the Quicksand Bog and when she reached the Feather, she made no attempt to speed up. What a horrible contestant and one of my most hated contestant of season three. It was either her, a certain Silver Snake boy, or another pair of Orange Iguanas. But I hate her the most, thus she is gone.

Lauren (Dried Apple Half of William Tell) traversed through two rooms that were already cleared by her partner in a minute. I can't think of another contestant to share the same feat. If she were to stay any longer, I would be surprised. But I don't need to worry about that, since I am eliminating her from the list now.
Title: Re: Legends S3 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on October 15, 2012, 02:44:51 PM
Veronica from "The Bifocal Monocle of One Eyed Jack" goes next. You wonder how contestants who take over a minute climbing a wall even make it on the show. Put simply, she was a terrible contestant.
Title: Re: Legends S3 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on October 15, 2012, 04:11:04 PM
If Veronica goes, then so does her partner Thomas. He was so inattentive, trying to complete objectives that were already completed and entering the Ancient Warriors again. He essentially made no progress.

I guess I'll do the honors and get rid of Casey.

Post by: PurpleParrot319 on October 15, 2012, 09:01:39 PM
Next to go is Larry (The Mysterious Manuscript of Mary Shelley). While he did take the Storeroom shortcut, that move is overshadowed by his piss-poor performance in the Shrine of the Silver Monkey. That was the worst attempt ever! At least Montezuma Kelly was about to assemble the belly correctly just when time ran out. Oh, and his dancing in the Room of the Ancient Warriors was bad. xD
Title: Re: Legends S3 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: The Red Jaguars on October 15, 2012, 09:08:03 PM
Its time for Damien from "Pytheas" to leave this list. He was so slow and hardly made any progress after his partner was taken out. It was a miracle he even made it one room away from the Chamber.
Title: Re: Legends S3 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on October 15, 2012, 09:58:50 PM
I can't believe nobody has voted off Heather from "Snow Cone" yet. She was slow, clueless, and blatantly cheated by forcing the Dark Forest door open with her bare hands. Pitiful contestant and temple run.
Title: Re: Legends S3 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: The Red Jaguars on October 16, 2012, 01:09:23 PM
Wow, there are so many contestants that I want to eliminate next. But I will get rid of Noelle from "Xerxes" as my first vote. Her layout may have been hard, but her performance was still piss poor. She was too much time in the rooms of the bottom floor like dangling on the rope in the Pit and taking forever to align herself in the Jester's Court. Not to mention, she was as slow as a rock.
Title: Re: Legends S3 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on October 16, 2012, 02:17:17 PM
Dana from "Smashed Printing Plate" goes next. She was just so pathetic.
Title: Re: Legends S3 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on October 16, 2012, 02:38:25 PM
Wow, how did we let Dana go on for so long? :o

Anyway, my first daily elimination goes to Kelli (The Thornwood Gavel of Judge Roy Bean). She made the bad mistake of going in another direction. She also tried fitting herself into an Ancient Warrior suit and her attempt at completing the Room of the Secret Password was just horrible and laughable. An all-around bad player. I feel bad for her partner.

Post by: The Red Jaguars on October 16, 2012, 09:32:17 PM
Too many bad contestants to get rid of. My second vote is going to Brian from "Jedediah Smith". While he hardly had enough time to make it far, he moved so slow and wasted time in the Pit taking his time.  Katie from "Imperial Wizard" and Elisa also had little time, but they made it far. Plus, it pisses me off how he waves to the camera at the end of the run. :roll:
Title: Re: Legends S3 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on October 16, 2012, 10:02:03 PM
Another player that needs to go is Katie (The Lily-Crested Crown of Clovis I). She might've done okay in other rooms, but it should NOT take you a minute to find the Sacred Markers. That's just bad and inexcusable.
Title: Re: Legends S3 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on October 16, 2012, 10:59:29 PM
Jason from "Smashed Printing Plate" goes next. He just had no idea what he was doing.
Title: Re: Legends S3 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: The Silver Monkey on October 16, 2012, 11:02:40 PM
If Noelle goes, Pat does, too. Kid couldn't climb the Pharaoh's Secret Passage to save his life (perhaps they over-greased it after Zac pwned it the day before?).
Title: Re: Legends S3 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: The Red Jaguars on October 17, 2012, 11:06:55 AM
Next to go is Nicholas from "Madame Tussaud". He was so slow and very hesitant in the temple. He wasted so much time completing certain room objectives like pulling on the same vine in the Tomb of the Headless Kings and just moved sluggishly up the central shaft. You wonder why Jennifer was yelling at him.

If Nicholas goes, then so does Jennifer (The Melted Head of Madame Tussaud). What an annoying waste of time and space. She moved like a slug through the Crypt and Pit. Not a good player.
Title: Re: Legends S3 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on October 17, 2012, 02:07:57 PM
Damien and still on the list. He was already eliminated.

Next to go is Janeen from "Good Luck Watch." She was just way too slow and hesitant.
Title: Re: Legends S3 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: The Red Jaguars on October 17, 2012, 10:06:49 PM
I edited out Damien on the list but left Nicholas, Jennifer, and Janeen on there as they were eliminated after the recent list update. I will remove them on the next list update to avoid confusion. ;)

Next to go is Irish from "Jedediah Smith". Looking back her run again, she was just so slow in the temple. I know the temple guard layout was tricky and she was not totally clueless, but she really could've picked up the pace. There were season 3 players that had tricky layouts like her, yet they had much more time on the clock than she did when she was taken out. She overstayed her welcome on this list.
Title: Re: Legends S3 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on October 17, 2012, 10:12:47 PM
Katie from "Clovis the First" is also still on the list. And was also eliminated on Page 1.

Speaking of Clovis the First, Judge can go next. He made no progress whatsoever in the temple, and he was just plain unmemorable.
Title: Re: Legends S3 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on October 17, 2012, 11:45:59 PM
Next to go is Maggie (The Mummified Hand of the Egyptian King). Besides not lasting long, she could've lasted a lot longer had she NOT lost her pendant in the Pit of all places. That should not have happened and she deserves this early elimination.

Not trying to "troll" or anything, but Ty dropped his pendant in his episode, yet he ranked second in the Season Two version of this game. Nobody really got on his case about it, nor did anyone say "This should not have happened" to his episode. I just wanted to bring your attention to the disparity; I'm not intentionally trying to bash, hate, or object to your elimination in any way. I simply think it's funny how different people who do a few similar things get portrayed in very different lights.
Title: Re: Legends S3 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: The Red Jaguars on October 18, 2012, 12:22:46 PM
In my opinion, I don't think either contestant should be slammed for dropping their pendants. The bands that supported the wrist for the pendants weren't exactly the most stable support for them. Both Maggie and Ty's pendant flung off their wrist probably due to it snapping for one reason or another. I am sure it was just an honest mistake and its not like either one of them dropped them purposefully. Just like Nick from "Henry VIII's Great Seal" jumping out of the temple was just an honest mistake, I don't hold that against him like some people do. And the same thing for Maggie and Ty and the pendants dropping. Although in Maggie's case, it resulted in her having a brief temple appearance, so there is really no reason for her to last on the list anyways. And if she continued the path that she took, I doubt the team would've won anyways. ;)

A new day, and Kimberly from "Poseidon" can go now. A good player should be one performs well throughout the temple, not one that is good until they reach the artifact. Kimberly had everything in her favor including a lucky no temple guard route and relatively easy layout. Yet, she still can't get the Broken Trident out of the Shrine with 50 seconds at hand. She wastes that time completing objectives that she didn't need to complete and was just screwing around when Kirk kept telling her that she needed to bring the Trident back to the temple gate. Plus, she was a slow runner throughout the temple anyways.

Thanks TRJ.

Next to go is Brett (The Dried Apple Half of William Tell). It's funny how this kid went unnoticed for so long. Even though the layout was near impossible, he was still bad, no questions asked.

PP4L, would you PLEASE stop taking these elimination games so seriously? You are waaaaaay overanalyzing some silly game that no one will remember a few months from now. We don't need to look into the politics of these contestants. We already have enough politics going around now with the election coming up. We don't need it again here. Did you read what I said in the Season 2 thread? Here it is (http://phantomstemple.us.to/index.php?topic=2521.msg123501#msg123501) in case you missed it. It's something I think you should look over. Now, can we please play this game and just have fun with it? And not make rules for why we have to like/dislike a certain contestant. This is starting to get a little old, sorry. =/

Anyways, Rachel from "Missing Portrait" can go next. Even if her layout was hard, she wasn't that great.

I do not appreciate when people put words in my mouth. I am sorry if people have misconstrued what I've been saying and have not understood my intentions. I am not making this into any sort of political debate, and I am not making rules about why or how to like or dislike anyone. I am making observations about the way contestants were portrayed on the show and how people identify the contestants based on those portrayals. All I was saying is that even though some of the contestants had similar attributes or had similar events occur, the way the episodes were edited and other characteristics of each individual contestant has caused people to dissociate the similarities of those contestants. From a psychological standpoint, I find it fascinating that media has that much ability to shape and manipulate conceptions to such an extent. By posing those thoughts and questions, I was trying to see if the comments people were making, were indeed influenced by the editing and the portrayal of the contestants.

I'm sorry that I've been contributing these ideas and that I've been trying to add some philosophical thought into this site; I'll stop posting altogether if that would make people happier. But I thought sharing these observations might be a slightly off-topic (yet related) idea to think about. And I thought that people would appreciate having some deeper, more intellectually-stimulating conversations about the show, rather than "I like Contestant X because they were fast" and "I disliked Contestant Y because they spent too long in a room" ... that's what I was hoping to get from this site. I suppose I was "wrong" for having that hope.

Post by: The Red Jaguars on October 18, 2012, 05:20:56 PM
I personally don't mind discussing my opinion at all with you, PP4L. I think that would make a good topic in the Heart Room rather in this thread because that is when we can get analytical and debate in that topic rather then here. I could always make a topic in the Heart Room and we can discuss it from there. I know that you aren't trying to cause any trouble and just want to talk about Legends. ;)

Truth be told, sometimes we are guilty of bashing contestants and episodes without really thinking much about it. Like Mitchell and Paula for example, we are so use to agreeing that they are overrated that we sometimes fail to compare them to other contestants that were just as guilty as them too. Please don't feel discouraged at all from posting or voting in here. But as PPF pointed out, this is more a game thread and it is kind of hard to play it when it drags into discussions. You can agree or disagree with anyone, but it probably would hold for better discussion in a separate thread in the Heart Room. If you want to, I can make a thread in that forum and we can talk about it from there? I would be more than happy to debate and discuss about our views of the contestants. ;)

TRJ- I appreciate that you responded in a civil manner and explained why my comments were being taken the wrong way, without coming across as condescending. I was unaware that this was strictly a "fun-only" part of the site. I would be more than happy to analyze and debate the ideas I presented here in more depth in the Heart Room. Thank you for the offer.
Title: Re: Legends S3 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: The Red Jaguars on October 18, 2012, 07:18:18 PM
Its okay, I kind of remember being in the same situation at another forum. It was at the Resident Evil forum on another site and we had a trivia topic there. Well, we started to get carried away on one subject in the trivia forum and it dragged onto a 4-5 pages. People were getting tired of reading it so instead we made a separate topic on another board and that pretty much solved the issue. There is nothing wrong with talking about Legends on a Legends forum, but PPF did make a point that it doesn't really belong in a topic like a game topic since it doesn't really bode well for discussion here. Since a lot of people like reading this thread, they might not want to read it all the time. But now that you have made a thread in the Heart Room, they don't have to read it if they don't want to. I hope this solves the issue now and that we can drop it. No more arguing now or I will REALLY bring John and Tia into this. ;) Kidding on the John and Tia part.

I guess I will go with my second vote now. Time for Christine from "Robert the Bruce" to go next. Her layout was tough enough, and she didn't help herself by being so slow. And she never tried all three books in the Crypt, so she just added more objectives on her path which was tough to begin with. She can go now.
Title: Re: Legends S3 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on October 18, 2012, 07:40:37 PM
As a whole, Tess (The Dried Ear of Corn of Sojourner Truth) was just a slow and mediocre player. She took FOREVER to complete the Silver Monkey and wasted too much time in the Dark Forest. A potential win thrown away by her. This was a Sir Gawain-like layout too, so it should've been a win. Time for her to hit the exits.
Title: Re: Legends S3 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on October 18, 2012, 10:40:45 PM
Jeremy from "Golden Spider Web" goes next. Even if his cheating in his temple game was an honest mistake, he still wasn't that great.
Title: Re: Legends S3 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition

Post by: PurpleParrot319 on October 19, 2012, 09:15:17 AM
I didn't think Lissy (The Royal Torque of Queen Boadicea) was a great player. She took too long in the Crypt, kind of struggled climbing out of the Pit, and was average in the Chamber. She just moved too slow. If not for that, then this would've been a historic win. She can go now.
Title: Re: Legends S3 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on October 19, 2012, 02:07:22 PM
Lauren from "The Lion-Slashed Jacket of Sacagawea" is my next pick for elimination. Even though her layout was tough, she moved pretty slow and hesitated a lot.

Olivia (Comet-Embroidered Battle Flag) wastefully climbed up the wall in the Pit, which used up enough time to impact the result of her run. Plus, she only lasted three rooms.

Kate from "Mary Shelley" really wasn't anything special. Even though she was a little better than Larry, she was still slow in the temple and should've had more time on the clock when she was taken out. She should've done better, especially after being so "enthusiastic" throughout her episode.

Dawn from "The Pearl Necklace of Gwalior" can go next. Even though she almost reached the necklace, she was just average at best.

Post by: PurpleParrot319 on October 19, 2012, 10:45:27 PM
I don't think Eddie (The Dried Ear of Corn of Sojourner Truth) was remarkable, so he can go.

Miriam (Secret Map of the Bandit Queen) had a very tough time getting through the Jesters' Court. She will be my second vote for today.

Keith from "Hans Holbein" can go next. The layout for this team was tough, but he moved at an average speed and I don't think he did anything remarkable in the temple. His time on this list is done.
Title: Re: Legends S3 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on October 20, 2012, 01:21:43 PM
Dean (The Lost Taj Mahal Turban of Aurangzeb) might have made it far, but he was a little on the slow side and did nothing remarkable. His time has come.
Title: Re: Legends S3 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: The Red Jaguars on October 20, 2012, 01:30:22 PM
Brittany from "Pytheas" can be dumped from the list next. While she wasn't as slow as Damien, she still took her sweet time in the temple and not to mention it even took her 8 seconds to reach the Crypt alone! There are better players than her.
Title: Re: Legends S3 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on October 20, 2012, 03:15:48 PM
Sherra from "Upside Down Compass" can go next. As tough as her layout was, she moved pretty slow and wasn't that remarkable.
Title: Re: Legends S3 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: The Red Jaguars on October 21, 2012, 12:43:47 AM
Next to go is Derek from "Henry Hudson". He didn't have much time in the temple due to a hard layout and a slow partner, but he didn't do anything really remarkable or memorable except drop the monkey torso over the edge. But it was not that remarkable. :P
Title: Re: Legends S3 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on October 21, 2012, 01:36:46 AM
Mike from "The Lion-Slashed Jacket of Sacagawea" goes next. He wasn't that fast, and he wasn't that remarkable.
Title: Re: Legends S3 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: The Red Jaguars on October 21, 2012, 05:11:06 PM
Chrystine from the "Lost Taj Mahal Turban" temple run was just an average contestant who didn't make much progress in the temple due to being cut short by triple capture. But she should've noticed that semi-obvious half-pendant.
Title: Re: Legends S3 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: PurpleParrot4Life on October 21, 2012, 05:43:50 PM
Hallie ("Useless Map of the Chibcha Chieftain") had a rather short stay in the temple and didn't do anything particularly memorable or spectacular in that time.

Time for the much-needed update.  ;)

Time for Brandy from "Tokugawa Ieyasu" to be escorted off this list. Her layout was tough, but she was way too hesitant in the temple like in the Room of the Ancient Warriors and completed an unnecessary in the Shrine. She can go next.

Kris (The Jewel-Encrusted Egg of Catherine the Great) didn't last long either. Plus, he wasted a decent amount of time in the Crypt and pointlessly made it back to the platform in the Pit when neither the Storeroom or Chamber was open. He can go now.
Title: Re: Legends S3 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on October 21, 2012, 10:34:50 PM
Ryan from "Pearl Necklace" can go next. Compared to the other contestants still on the list, he was just average at best.
Title: Re: Legends S3 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: The Red Jaguars on October 22, 2012, 02:05:26 PM
If Kris goes, so should Annie from "Benzibab". She my have been quick, but she wasn't that memorable and the easy temple layout was too kind for this team. Plus, she only lasted for three rooms. She can go now.
Title: Re: Legends S3 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: PurpleParrot4Life on October 22, 2012, 02:27:32 PM
Elise ("War Fan of the Forty-Seven Ronin") may have not had any control over the door malfunction in the Tomb of the Headless Kings, but she nonetheless did not clear any rooms herself. Even though she put forth a valiant effort, all of the other contestants remaining (if I have gone through the entire list correctly) at least completed one room objective. For this reason, I feel that this is a good time for her to stop.

Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on October 22, 2012, 03:06:34 PM
Jared from "Mytical Spellbook" goes next. While his layout was tough, he went through the Dark Forest, when he didn't even have to.
Title: Re: Legends S3 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on October 22, 2012, 03:08:49 PM
Speaking of Jared's, Jared (The Useless Map of the Chibcha Chieftain) didn't last that long either. I just feel that what's left on the list is better than him, so no need to keep him around any longer.
Title: Re: Legends S3 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: The Red Jaguars on October 22, 2012, 03:10:00 PM
Good Lord, I can't believe Jared from "Imperial Wizard" lasted that long. He might've made it to the top 25 if you guys didn't catch him earlier.  :shock:

Speaking of the top 25, we are almost there. We have around 28 players left. ;)

Edited post to re add Elisa from "Ivan ther Terrible." TRJ, please be a little more careful when removing contestants. There's no need for you to rush and skim through this thread and remove the wrong person or don't remove a conestant at all. Take your time to read through all the posts and update the list, please.

Shoot, I didn't realize I eliminated Elisa instead of Elise. I thought I eliminated Elise before PPF pointed it out that Elise was still on the list. I didn't realize I removed Elisa, which is why I was confused onto why Elise was on the list. I wasn't paying attention because of the back-to-back Jared eliminations confused me since both of you guys eliminated the Jared from "Imperial Wizard" first. But now that is out of the way, there shouldn't anymore confusions now that we are almost in our top 25. ;)

Amanda from "Apanuugpak" didn't really move that fast in the temple and messed around in certain rooms like the Pi of the Pendulum. Besides, it was Gator that won the whole thing.
Title: Re: Legends S3 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on October 23, 2012, 02:12:44 PM
Quentin "The Red Sash of Tokugawa Ieyasu" goes next. While he was pretty fast, the other players still on the list are better than him.

I'm not sure how popular this elimination will be, but next to go is Katie (The Mystical Spellbook of the Imperial Wizard). While she did very well tracing her partner's footsteps in such short time, that's the only thing she did. I commend her for NOT being like Dana and Lauren, but I think who's left is better than Katie.

Post by: The Red Jaguars on October 23, 2012, 04:19:23 PM
Finishing at spot 24 is Lacey from "Sforza". It was an exciting win and everything, but it felt like it was handed to them on a silver platter. Besides, Lacey moved only at an average speed and by the temple run came around, her "enthusiasm" was becoming too much. This is a good stopping point for her.

The #23 spot goes to Josh from "Egyptian King." He was a fast guy, but I don't find him to be Top 20, let alone Top 10 material. I don't hold the different path thing against him, I just think others were better.

#22 goes to Yakerra (The Ivory Hunting Horn of Roland). She might've had a lot of time on the clock at the end, but her layout was too easy and she moved at an average pace. This is a good place for her to stop.

Post by: The Red Jaguars on October 23, 2012, 10:00:42 PM
You did my work for me, PP319. I was going to eliminate Yakerra next, so thanks for the help.  :mrred:

Missing the top 20 is Jonathan from "William the Conqueror". He moved fast in the temple and should be commended for reaching a center of the temple artifact. But he made a big blunder of wasting time in the Room of the Ancient Warriors where the first armor was the one that opened the door to the Chamber. Had he not done that, we might've had three center of the temple victories.

Starting the top 20 is Asher (The Jeweled Scabbard of Sforza). It was either him or another certain player that had an easy layout, but I chose Asher because the only objective he completed was the King's Storeroom. He moved at a nice pace and even grabbed the half pendant in this winning effort, but the remaining players on this list are better than him. Plus, their layouts were much harder, for the most part.
Title: Re: Legends S3 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: The Red Jaguars on October 24, 2012, 02:01:47 PM
I will do the honors of getting rid of Kevin from "Benzibab" then. He was a fast guy, but if you look at the other male contestants on this list like Jarrid, Jay, and Nate - I am sure they could've done the same thing as Kevin did or even faster. Plus, those boys had to face a layout with much more difficult rooms and objectives. Kevin's path was too simple and this win is not even that memorable anyways.
Title: Re: Legends S3 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on October 24, 2012, 02:40:47 PM
Jeremy from "War Fan" is way overdue to be off this list. I don't hold the door malfunctioning thing against him, but he was just plain average. He's not memorable or Top 20 material at all.
Title: Re: Legends S3 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: The Red Jaguars on October 24, 2012, 07:20:33 PM
Just like Jeremy, I think Mike from "Judge Roy Bean" has overstayed his welcome too. He moved pretty quick in the temple and had one of the fastest monkey assemblies, but these remaining contestants were more memorable and did something significant. He can stop here.

I'm surprised David (The Enormous Feather of the Mê Linh) outlasted some of the already eliminated players. He may have been way better than his partner, but he only went through five rooms. I feel that everyone else remaining is better than him.

Just making the Top 15 is Tiffani from "Sir Gawain." She may have gotten back on the platform and taken shortcuts, but she was a little slow and her path was lucky. I don't blame her slowness while bringing out the helmet, but I just feel like the rest of the players were better.
Title: Re: Legends S3 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: The Red Jaguars on October 25, 2012, 12:42:48 PM
I am going to give spot #14 to Matthew from "Belle Boyd". It was awesome to see him obliterate the temple for a last ditch effort to reach the artifact, but he hardly completed any objectives enroute to the artifact. Plus, he never tried the Shrine shortcut and if he did that, then we might've had an "Henry Morgan" type of ending,

Cracking the top dozen is Elisa (The Discarded Deal of Ivan the Terrible). It was fun to watch her effort toward the Seal, but I think the remaining players are better than her. Plus, she only completed one objective and basically just traced Travis' steps. She was quick at both, but in the end, I feel that what's left is better and proved themselves more.

T.J. (The Metal Beard of the Egyptian Queen) had a very solid performance in the temple, but I'm not sure if it was remarkable or distinguishable enough to make the Top 10. I give him a lot of credit, though, for being a very good and speedy competitor. He cleared out to the Dark Forest in just over a minute, the same amount of time it usually took for people to clear up through just the Tomb of the Headless Kings. I also thought he was very smart for trying more skeletons in the Crypt instead of going right down to the Ledges when that door opened.

Making the top 10 is Leah from "Belle Boyd". She was a solid temple runner who moved swiftly while facing a tough temple layout that is often overlooked. She also made it very far given her tough layout. But looking at the other players on this list remaining, she is the only one left that really had a "flawed" performance where she did have the option of entering the Chamber, which would've saved more time for her run. But she was awesome and showed the "William Tell" kids that you can make it far in a tough layout if you are competent.

Oh yeah, it was a good thing that T.J. never went down into the Ledges after pulling one book in the Crypt. I am pretty sure that the last temple guard was in the Ledges for that temple run. We could've had a repeat of "Sultan Suleiman" again on our hands. Good catch there, I never noticed that. ;)

Nate from "The Royal Torque of Queen Boadicea" takes the #9 spot. He was great and MUCH better than Lissy, but I thought the other players did better.

Andrea (The Lion-Headed Bracelet of Chandragupta) takes 8th place. She had a solid solo win, but the layout was nothing special and she had a close win too. This is a good stopping place for her.

There is two different people I want to give spot #7 to, but I am going to give it to Kristin from "Catherine the Great". She was no doubt one of the best girls on the entire and had an awesome temple run performance. She was fast and had a kickass dive into the Tomb of the Headless Kings. But her layout was kind of simple too and was almost identical to "Roland", except Kristin had to complete the Shrine. I think this is the best position for her.

This is tough, but for season 3, I don't think Jay (The Good-Luck Watch of Empress Eugénie) is top 5 material. I felt that the remaining five players were better than Jay. He still did great though. Better than his partner, that's for sure! :roll:

We only have four users currently playing this game. That's still not enough. :(

Edit: I'm not talking about the four remaining players on the list. Only me, TRJ, PPF, and PP4L have been really active in this game. Like usual, a small amount.

Jarrid (The Lost Hornpipe of the Pirate Captain) was a solid runner, but all he had to do was assemble the statue in the Shrine of the Silver Monkey, go down a ladder, and then get out of the temple. He may have been smart for trying to take the shortcut from the Pit to the King's Storeroom (and I'm not holding it against him that the door was stuck shut, even though the step in the staircase lowered, indicating the door should have been triggered), but he also strayed into the Room of the Secret Password. Having less than a full pendant on him, it was lucky that the last guard was not in that room. The other three players had seemingly fewer and less noticeable errors in their portions of their runs, so Jarrid will take stop #4.

And just missing the final 2 is Travis (The Discarded Seal of Ivan the Terrible). There is no doubt that he was the best male contestant to ever enter the temple and NOT win. He was outstanding and did nothing wrong. However, the other two players I felt were more remarkable and were a part of a winning effort. Travis gets 3rd.

Yeah, the turnout again for this elimination game was once again, disappointing. I'll admit, the Seasons 1 and 2 games had a decent amount of voters. But this elimination game once again, had the same people voting. I'm sorry, but this is the very reason I'm so against playing these games. It becomes such a chore to get through and it gets boring because it's the same few people voting again and again. Let's face it, these type of games are so "out of style" now. It's been that way for well over a year now. I think we should just stick to the bracket/polls from now on. Those seem to work better actually, evident in how the "best victories" brackets turned out.

Anyways, since Gator and Jessica are the final two, the poll has been set up. It expires in 24 hours.

Yeah, this one was a little less popular than the other two. But TSM did post on the first page, so there was 5 people voting at least. But this is the last topic in the series anyways and I was going to take the final list from each season and make a tournament out of it. So after this, we will be done on the elimination side.

Oh and, vote placed too. ;)

I admit that I went with Jessica from "Pirate Captain" on this one. She was great in the temple and handled the daunting central shaft like it was nothing. Her performance was pretty much flawless and I wish more girls on the show were like her. Best girl on the show IMO. Gator was awesome too and fast on top of that. I am not disappointed with him winning either. ;)

Here are my rankings:

1. Gator (The Mussel Shell Armor of Apanuugpak) (good, although would've been my runner-up)
2. Jessica (The Lost Hornpipe of the Pirate Captain) (good, although would've been my choice for winner)
3. Travis (The Discarded Seal of Ivan the Terrible) (good)
4. Jarrid (The Lost Hornpipe of the Pirate Captain) (good)
5. Zac Turney (The Secret Map of the Bandit Queen) (one lower)
6. Jay (The Good-Luck Watch of Empress Eugénie) (one higher)
7. Kristin (The Jewel-Encrusted Egg of Catherine the Great) (good)
8. Andrea (The Lion-Headed Bracelet of Chandragupta) (good)
9. Nate (The Royal Torque of Queen Boadicea) (good)
10. Leah (The Bullet-Riddled Handbag of Belle Boyd) (good)
11. T.J. (The Metal Beard of the Egyptian Queen) (good)
12. Elisa (The Discarded Deal of Ivan the Terrible) (good)
13. Randy (The Metal Beard of the Egyptian Queen) (good)
14. Matthew (The Bullet-Riddled Handbag of Belle Boyd) (good)
15. Tiffani (The Much-Heralded Helmet of Sir Gawain) (good)
16. David (The Enormous Feather of the Mê Linh) (lower)
17. Mike (The Thornwood Gavel of Judge Roy Bean) (good, maybe  little lower)
18. Jeremy (The War Fan of the Forty-seven Ronin) (lower)
19. Kevin (The Ruby Earring of Ben Zibab) (little lower)
20. Asher (The Jeweled Scabbard of Sforza) (good, maybe lower)
21. Jonathan (The Comet-Embroidered Battle Flag of William the Conqueror)
22. Yakerra (The Ivory Hunting Horn of Roland) (lower)
23. Josh (The Mummified Hand of the Egyptian King) (good)
24. Lacey (The Jeweled Scabbard of Sforza) (not even top 25 IMO)
25. Katie (The Mystical Spellbook of the Imperial Wizard) (couple spots higher)

I voted for GATOR!!! He was very fast and Was one of only two people (Missy, Lucky Heart Shped Pillow of Annie Taylor) to grab an artifact from the Center Room and bring it out. Gator was even smart to take the Bog-Shrine Passage, if he went up the Pharoah's Secret Passage, the Mussel Shell Armor episode wouldn't be a win leaving us to find out what is the next greatest temple run victory.

Post by: PurpleParrot4Life on October 28, 2012, 12:44:52 PM
I, too, voted for Jessica. I felt that she had one of the cleanest, swiftest, and most flawless performances out of all of the contestants to make it to the temple. Her ability to clear six of the most difficult or time-consuming rooms in 1:30 shows how smart and fast she was. That being said, here are my opinions about the Top 25:

1. Gator (The Mussel Shell Armor of Apanuugpak)                         [Second runner up- He was fast, but only had to clear a few rooms.]
2. Jessica (The Lost Hornpipe of the Pirate Captain)                     [Move to first place- See explanation, above.]
3. Travis (The Discarded Seal of Ivan the Terrible)                        [Runner up- He had a flawless performance, clearing eight rooms like it was nothing. I wish this team would have won.]
4. Jarrid (The Lost Hornpipe of the Pirate Captain)                       [One lower, to 5- He detoured to the Secret Password.]
5. Zac Turney (The Secret Map of the Bandit Queen)                    [One higher, to 4- He was fast and knew where he was going, making up for Miriam's mishap in the Jesters' Court.]
6. Jay (The Good-Luck Watch of Empress Eugénie)                       [Down two, to 8- A very good contestant, but this is too high of a ranking.]
7. Kristin (The Jewel-Encrusted Egg of Catherine the Great)         [Down two, to 9- A very good contestant, but this is too high of a ranking.]
8. Andrea (The Lion-Headed Bracelet of Chandragupta)               [Up one, to 7- Pretty fast, knew where she was going, scored a solo win.]
9. Nate (The Royal Torque of Queen Boadicea)                             [Down one, to 10- Another good contestant.]
10. Leah (The Bullet-Riddled Handbag of Belle Boyd)                    [Move up to 6- Extremely fast at clearing over half of the temple.]
11. T.J. (The Metal Beard of the Egyptian Queen)                         [Move down to 19- Cleared five rooms in an average amount of time.]
12. Elisa (The Discarded Deal of Ivan the Terrible)                        [Good at 12- A fast, smart contestant who was unfortunate with the guard delaying her.]
13. Randy (The Metal Beard of the Egyptian Queen)                    [Move down to 18- Not the toughest layout and didn't have the best exit strategy.]
14. Matthew (The Bullet-Riddled Handbag of Belle Boyd)             [Down two, to 16- Fast contestant, but didn't have a long enough time in the temple.]
15. Tiffani (The Much-Heralded Helmet of Sir Gawain)                   [Move up to 11- May not have been the fastest, but she did what she had to do to score a solo win. She was smart to take the shortcut to the Dark Forest and also got back to the platform in the Pit.]
16. David (The Enormous Feather of the Mê Linh)                        [Move down to 20- Same path and guards as T.J.; cleared five rooms in an average amount of time.]
17. Mike (The Thornwood Gavel of Judge Roy Bean)                     [Up three, to 14- One of the fastest to assemble the Silver Monkey, and an all-around good contestant.]
18. Jeremy (The War Fan of the Forty-seven Ronin)                     [Up three, to 15- Same path as Mike, and was just about as good at clearing the rooms.]
19. Kevin (The Ruby Earring of Ben Zibab)                                    [Down two, to 21- Not a very lengthy or difficult path.]
20. Asher (The Jeweled Scabbard of Sforza)                                 [Down to 25- Only had to clear the King's Storeroom before running out from the temple.]
21. Jonathan (The Comet-Embroidered Battle Flag)                      [Move up to 13- He cleared from the Tomb to the Ancient Warriors himself, and even with the delay in the Ancient Warriors, he still reached the Flag... very impressive, if you ask me.]
22. Yakerra (The Ivory Hunting Horn of Roland)                            [Down one, to 23- A very simple layout.]
23. Josh (The Mummified Hand of the Egyptian King)                    [Move up to 17- A smart contestant, he found the dropped pendant and cleared a lot of rooms quickly.]
24. Lacey (The Jeweled Scabbard of Sforza)                                 [Good at 24- She cleared rooms at an average pace and cleared more rooms than her partner.]
25. Katie (The Mystical Spellbook of the Imperial Wizard)             [Up to 22- A quick contestant; if only she had a little more time.]

I voted for Gator too, but Jessica would've been a great winner too.

Jeremy wouldn't even be in your top 25 PPF? :|

Heh, I like the way that PP4L laid out his preferences for the top 25 by giving each contestant a description. I would have done that if I had time, but good idea. ;)

Although I am surprised on how high some contestants are like Leah from "Belle Boyd" being number 6. I mean her temple performance was great, but she also created an extra objective enroute to the artifact. I am also kind of surprised to see T.J. rank that low too. But based on your rankings, it looks like you are basing them on temple performance and not taking into account a winning performance (which is good perspective to take).

But based on your rankings, it looks like you are basing them on temple performance and not taking into account a winning performance (which is good perspective to take).

Even though Leah detoured to the King's Storeroom, she still spent very little time completing the objective there. In my opinion, her speed and ability to clear rooms efficiently overshadowed her going through the extra room.

The reason I put T.J. so low in the ranking is that he cleared five rooms in a decent amount of time. There wasn't anything particularly incredible about his particular performance (despite this run being a win). Since both he and David ("Enormous Feather") shared the same path, temple guard placement, and general speed in clearing rooms, I felt that they should be paired together in the ranking. Both boys cleared the rooms at an average pace, and I felt that other contestants outdid their performances, either by being faster, by having cleaner performances, or by handling more grueling layouts with about as much ease.

The same mentality went into pairing Michael ("Thornwood Gavel") and Jeremy ("War Fan"). In this case, I felt that both boys did a rather good job of clearing their seven rooms in a quick manner. The Tomb of the Headless Kings, Chamber of the Sacred Markers, and Shrine of the Silver Monkey are all time-consuming rooms, but they both had little difficulty completing these rooms. Since they had to withstand more rooms and cleared them in a more efficient manner than some of the other contestants on the list, I felt that Michael and Jeremy deserved to be higher in the rankings.

And, yes, I try to only look at temple performance, rather than the outcome of the run, when assessing the contestants. Sometimes, very able contestants were put through grueling paths, whereas some contestants were more average in their ability to clear rooms, but because their paths were less intense, their runs ended more successfully. Due to this disparity, I try to standardize the contestants by looking solely at temple performance, so that I can put forth my most honest opinion about the "Best" contestants of the season rather than the "Most Successful" contestants of the season.

I'm surprised as well.

Jeremy and Mike ("Thornwood Gavel") shared the same path and cleared the room with just about the same amount of efficiency, so it's interesting that Mike's position at #17 is "good," while Jeremy would not be in your Top 25 at all.

Quite frankly, I didn't think Jeremy was that great at all. I don't care if Mike and him have everything in common. Jeremy did a good job and everything, and I don't hold the door stuck thing against him, but he wasn't THAT great. And I didn't think Mike was that great either. I think both players overstayed their welcome on the list. The rankings stick, it's too late to change it now.

Then who would you have put in his place?

Amanda? Quentin? I really don't know who could take his place. :?

I probably wouldn't have put either Jeremy or "Judge Roy Bean" Mike into the top 25. Neither of their temple performances were that impressive. The only thing Mike had going for him was the fastest monkey assembling. But a lot of other contestants like Jarrid, Jay, Nate, and Josh from "Egyptian King" had very fast assemblies too.

I definitely don't consider Asher or Kevin top 20 either. Kevin is so overrated and any of the top boys on this list could've done what he did, especially T.J. and David from "Enormous Feather".

Looking back now, I might've placed Jonathan from "William the Conqueror" in the top 20 at least. But he also screwed up in the Room of the Ancient Warriors.

I wouldn't necessarily say that he "screwed up" in the Room of the Ancient Warriors. He definitely got delayed in that room, but he still at least got to the Battle Flag, so it wasn't a complete failure. It was probably difficult to see that the door had been activated after trying the first armor, since the door didn't noticeably fling open like, say, the door to the King's Storeroom. The door leading to the Chamber of the Sacred Markers was partially blocked by the first headdress.

Isn't there going to be a finals with all 3 seasons?

I'm pretty sure TRJ will set it up in a brackets tournament, like he did with the "best wins" contest. He'll probably get started on it once he finds enough time.

With the Top 25 of three seasons, that leaves 75 contestants. In a bracket style, typically there is a pool of 64 contestants that get whittled down by going head-to-head one on one. How will the bracket be set up to accommodate 75 contestants?

Well... We could make another elimination thread.
Title: Re: Legends S3 Contestants Elimination Thread - Tournament Edition
Post by: The Red Jaguars on October 30, 2012, 04:12:49 PM
Yeah, I was going to make one more elimination thread where we take the top 25 from each season then rank the top 32 and use it as a basis for a tournament. I can make the elimination threads, just as long as you guys trying voting when you get a chance. ;)
