Title: Three runs that bring shame to a team - Day 7: Entire series
Post by: The Red Jaguars on June 23, 2013, 05:43:14 PM
This topic is pretty much the opposite of GM1's "Three temple runs that define a Legends team" topic. The premise is the same though. Every day I will hold a poll for each Legends team and you must decide 3 temple runs that bring shame to that team. What do I mean by that? These are runs that usually give a team a bad reputation due to their performance or anything else.

Day 1 - Red Jaguars: The Keys to the Alhambra (7), Blackbeard's Treasure Map (7), The Smashed Printing Plate of Frederick Douglass (4)
Day 2 - Blue Barracudas: The Lucky Pig of Amelia Earhart (5), The Mysterious Manuscript of Mary Shelly (5), The Stone Head of the Evil King (3)
Day 3 - Green Monkeys: The Marble Armrest of Xerxes (5), The Dried Apple Half of William Tell (3), The Golden Spider Web of Robert the Bruce (2)/The Broken Wing of Icarus (2)/Pecos Bill's Lost Lariat (2)
Day 4 - Orange Iguanas: The Bifocal Monocle of One-Eyed Jack (5), The Enormous Feather of the Me Linh (3), The Cracked Crown of the Spanish King (3)
Day 5 - Purple Parrots: The Oracle Bowl of Delphi (7), The Lost Lion Tail of Little John (7), The Sacred Ring of Sultan Suleiman (7)
Day 6 - Silver Snakes: John Henry's Lost Hammer (6), The Golden Cricket Cage of Khan (6), The Snow Cone of Mt. Kilimanjaro (6)

Let's start off with the best team first.  :mrred:

What three runs bring shame to the Red Jaguars? Well the Red Jaguars had a lot of bad runs, so this was kind of hard. The first two were obvious though: Blackbeard and Alhambra. The last one was kind of tough though, but I went with "Charles Lindbergh". My reasoning:

Alhambra: If it was bad enough that the team only got to the temple due to an incorrect tiebreaker by the Silver Snakes, Steve and Lisa also have a terrible temple run. Lisa was awful and made no progress with 2:30 to herself.

Blackbeard: This one was also a disaster too. Sabrina was so slow and only made it through 5 rooms in 3 minutes. She had no idea what she was doing and just gave up when she couldn't figure out... the Heart Room. :roll:

Charles Lindbergh: It was either this one or "Smashed Printing Plate". That was a very hard choice, but I chose this run because the Red Jaguars should've won but Kim tried her hardest to fail miserably. This was such a piss poor attempt and the Jaguars should've had a Dark Forest win. :roll:

Honorable mentions include: Smashed Printing Plate due to Jason's incompetence and Dana's obnoxious screaming. And Queen Nzinga for the Red Jaguars having their temple run ending the way it did. :roll:

Blackbeard, Alhambra, and Smashed Printing Plate. Charles Lindbergh is a good contender as well, but at least they almost reached the artifact. The Smashed Printing Plate team was just pathetic. :roll:

Blackbeard and Alhambra, no doubt about those two. As for the last one, I'm going for 'Smashed Printing Plate'. Like PPF said, at least the team in the 'Weather Maps' almost reached the artifact. Besides, both contestants in 'Smashed Printing Plate' really bugged me. Especially Dana and her screaming.

You know what? I removed my vote for Charles Lindbergh and gave it to Smashed Printing Plate. At least in the Charles Lindbergh run, Nick was a beast. Kim was definitely a lost cause though, but they came so close like mention (mostly to Nick). In the Printing Plate run, this team was so incompetent and Jason was so annoying. My other two votes (Alhambra and Blackbeard) stay the same though.  ;)

I am going to end our poll and move onto our next team: the Blue Barracudas.  :mrblue:

The three biggest runs that people felt brought shame to the Red Jaguars were Alhambra, Blackbeard, and Smashed Printing Plate.  :oops:

Blackbeard and Alhambra were too obvious. The other one, I actually went with Anne Bonny. Ron's incompetence and stupidity at the end truly brought shame to the Red Jaguars. More so than Smashed Printing Plate in my opinion. :roll:

I was tempted to pick Charles Lindbergh because of Kim and because I really hate this run, but this time, it gets let off the hook because I feel other runs brought more shame to the Red Jaguars.
Title: Re: Three runs that bring shame to a team - Day 2: Blue Barracudas
Post by: The Red Jaguars on June 24, 2013, 12:19:34 PM
Unlike the Red Jaguars, the Blue Barracudas don't have as many disaster and failures of a temple run. With that being said, I chose Amelia Earhart, Jean Lafitte, and Mysterious Manuscript.

Amelia Earhart: Kristen spent literally 3 minutes in the temple being stupid. She couldn't climb the Wall Climb and didn't know what to do in any of the rooms. Even Kirk and Scott had to tell her what to do in the most basic rooms. Scott doesn't even get a chance to enter the temple.

Jean Lafitte: They were both slow and didn't know what they were doing either. Plus, Terry Kay probably wouldn't have even got the Silver Monkey assembled before time was up. And the way they got to the temple was a load of crap, like Alhambra.

Mysterious Manuscript: Okay, this one was the hardest choice for me. It was either this one or "Stone Head". Both runs featured a second male player spending over a minute with one objective. I chose this one over Stone Head because there is no reason the Silver Monkey should take over a minute to assemble. Even when time was up, Larry didn't even come close to assembling it properly. At least Tony has an excuse for Medusa's Lair being time consuming because the producers even dumbed down the objective. And Kate and Larry weren't that great anyways, plus the way Larry moves.  :roll:

Honorable mention goes to "Stone Head" though. Medusa's Lair shouldn't have taken over a minute to finish. And Tony was a moron in general. Silk Sash was pretty pathetic too.

Same here.

Post by: The Red Jaguars on June 25, 2013, 12:43:12 PM
I think this is a good time the end the Blue Barracudas poll. The three biggest losers are Amelia Earhart, Mary Shelley, and Stone Head,

Now to move onto the Green Monkeys.  :mrgreen:
Title: Re: Three runs that bring shame to a team - Day 3: Green Monkeys
Post by: The Red Jaguars on June 25, 2013, 12:59:51 PM
The poll is now finally up. The Green Monkeys didn't have many big fails in the temple. But still, my votes were not easy at all. The three I chose were: Lost Lariat, Icarus, and Xerxes.

Lost Lariat - Too many mistakes in one run. Colleen missed a shot at a solo victory, Kirk told Chris to plow through the wall, and Chris was a lost cause himself. Chris was the biggest fail though for not getting Lariat out of the temple in time with 53 seconds. A disappointing run with way too many mistakes.

Icarus - The way Jason lost was so cringeworthy. He was a moron and blew every chance he got to get the Broken Wing out of the temple. Maybe if he didn't backtrack so much and have a bad temple plan, then he would've won handily. What a loser.

Xerxes - These two didn't even come close. It took Noelle almost 2 minutes to complete the bottom. Yet, contestants like TJ and David (Enormous Feather) beat it in under a minute. Pat didn't even make any progress himself. They were an awful team.

My only other honorable mention is the William Tell team. The reason why I never voted for them was because they never had a chance anyways. Although Lauren "fails as a human being" for not even making it to the cleared King's Storeroom with a minute to herself.  :roll:

Post by: PurpleParrot319 on June 25, 2013, 01:11:42 PM
I don't see Dried Apple Half anywhere in that poll. :|

Once it's put in, I'll vote for that, Xerxes, and Icarus. Dried Apple Half was hard to watch. Same with Xerxes. Both teams were incompetent. Then there's Icarus. Jason messes up big time. It was truly shameful that he didn't win.

Xerxes, Pecos Bill, & Dried Apple Half (when it's up)

William Tell is up now. ;)

Dried Apple Half, Golden Spider Web, and Xerxes. Those are the only bad Green Monkey runs really. The rest are just fine.
Title: Re: Three runs that bring shame to a team - Day 3: Green Monkeys
Post by: The Red Jaguars on June 26, 2013, 12:05:09 PM
Very close results, but it looks like the three biggest runs that bring shame to the Green Monkeys is William Tell, Xerxes, and a three way tie between Robert the Bruce, Lost Lariat, and Icarus. For now, I am going to keep the three way tie as a third place finish and do a tiebreaker later.

Our next team will be the Orange Iguanas.  :mrorange:
Title: Re: Three runs that bring shame to a team - Day 4: Orange Iguanas
Post by: The Red Jaguars on June 26, 2013, 12:17:35 PM
Just like the Red Jaguars, the Orange Iguanas are full of terrible fails. The three I voted for were Bifocal Monocle, Enormous Feather, and Harriet Tubman.

Bifocal Monocle: No comment. These two were lost causes and some of the mistakes they made took stupidity to a whole new level.

Enormous Feather: Karisa was such a big fail and tried her hardest for this team not to win. Well, she was successful. I have never seen a temple runner like Karisa piss away an easy win. She got was so slow and got lost in the simplest room of S3. I can't stand watching this run... at all. :roll:

Harriet Tubman: Chris creates a good path all the way to the Shrine, and Ryann only lasts in the temple for 3 seconds and blows the run by running into the... incorrect entrance room. :roll: This run is a perfect example of what not to do in the temple. :roll:

Special mentions to Cracked Crown for Kerry's super slow speed and to Grandy Nanny for both players having no idea what to do. :roll:

Post by: PurpleParrot319 on June 26, 2013, 12:35:38 PM
This one's tough. In the end, I went with Cracked Crown, Bifocal Monocle, and Enormous Feather. Other runs I considered were Shiva, Grandy Nanny, Harriet Tubman, and Clovis I. So many lame Orange Iguana runs. :roll:

Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on June 27, 2013, 10:36:16 AM
For me, it's Cracked Crown, Bifocal Monocle, and Enormous Feather. But truth be told, a lot of Orange Iguana runs suck. :roll:
Title: Re: Three runs that bring shame to a team - Day 4: Orange Iguanas
Post by: The Red Jaguars on June 27, 2013, 12:02:19 PM
It looks like the 3 biggest runs that being shame to the Orange Iguanas are: Bifocal Monocle, Cracked Crown, and Enormous Feather.

Time to move onto the Purple Parrots.  :mrpurple:

Post by: The Red Jaguars on June 27, 2013, 12:10:53 PM
This poll wasn't too hard as the three runs were pretty obvious - Oracle Bowl, Lost Lion Tail, and Sultan Suleiman.

Oracle Bowl: The first minute of the run start out fine, but then it took a turn for the worst when Jackie entered the temple. She was so slow and dumb in the temple. It took her a long time to get out of the Cave of Sighs and she couldn't get past the Pirate's Cove. :roll:

Lost Lion Tail: Despite getting a free pass to the temple, this team still puts on a crappy performance. Marie was fine, but Claude was terrible. :roll: He only made it to the Mine Shaft with a 1:45 to himself and didn't even know what to do there. Worst Purple Parrot player ever. :roll:

Sultan Suleiman: Way too many mistakes made by Gracelyn and Brian. Brian screwed up the most though by not trying all 3 books in the Crypt AND not signaling the half-pendant back to Gracelyn. And they were slow anyways. :roll:

The only other real choice is "Golden Pepperoni". But I don't think Aqila passing up the Pepperoni to be that bad. Especially compared to the three above.  :roll:

Post by: NekoSuave on June 27, 2013, 06:52:40 PM
Yeah, the shameful runs are pretty obvious. Oracle Bowl featured Jackie, who I thought was the disgrace of the Purple Parrots...until I remembered Claude from Lost Lion Tail. He's the real disgrace, though Jackie's still pretty bad. And Suleiman is just cringe-worthy to watch.

Oracle Bowl, Sacred Ring, and Lost Lion Tail. I don't think it requires explanation.

Post by: The Red Jaguars on June 28, 2013, 12:39:48 PM
It looks like this one is unanimous, with Oracle Bowl, Lost Lion Tail, and Sultan Suleiman all getting the only votes.

Our final team will be the Silver Snakes.  :mrsilver:
Title: Re: Three runs that bring shame to a team - Day 6: Silver Snakes
Post by: The Red Jaguars on June 28, 2013, 12:50:07 PM
The Silver Snakes had some big fails in the temple, but my vote went to Golden Cricket Cage, Lost Hammer, and Mt. Kilimanjaro.

Lost Hammer: Out of 120 episodes on the show, Kim was the only contestant who did not know what an actuator looked like. There is no excuse for this level of stupidity. It's hilarious how they even sent out a mercy temple guard. Billy also kind of ruined it too by wasting unnecessary time in the Spider's Lair. But I am voting this one mostly for Kim.

Golden Cricket Cage: Um yeah, four rooms in 3 minutes? What an awful and poor excuse for a temple appearance. This was the worst temple run on Legends and the Silver Snakes should be ashamed for having back-to-back fails. :roll:

Mt. Kilimanjaro: They only made it through 5 rooms in 3 minutes. That is awful for S3 standards. Casey was so slow in the temple and it took him 2-3 times to complete his objectives. Heather was a cheater for trying to force the Dark Forest door open. Terrible run.

Other pretty big fails were Nathan Hale and Poseidon. But at least those two runs had players that knew what they were doing for the most part. The above three are like bottom 5 runs on the whole show. :roll:

Golden Cricket Cage, Lost Hammer, and Mt. Kilimanjaro. For same reasons TRJ stated.

TRJ hit it spot on. Golden Cricket Cage, Lost Hammer, and Mt. Kilimanjaro are just awful.

And it looks like the Silver Snakes worst runs were Golden Cricket Cage, Lost Hammer, and Kilimanjaro.  :oops:

And that will cover all of the teams and their shameful runs. Thanks for everyone for putting in their input.  :mrred:  :mrblue:  :mrgreen:  :mrorange:   :mrpurple:  :mrsilver:

Post by: The Red Jaguars on June 30, 2013, 12:53:22 AM
Okay, the poll is set now. ;) This time we are voting for the three biggest runs to bring shame to our beloved Legends.  :mryellow:

This was tough because there were a lot of bad runs that bring shame, but I voted for Golden Cricket Cage, Blackbeard, and Bifocal Monocle. Those three runs had teams that took stupidity to another level. They were so bad that their mistakes were unique to their runs. And the whole team in general was bad with nothing redeemable about them.  :roll:

Alhambra, Lost Hammer, and Lost Lion Tail are good honorable mentions though. But at least in those runs, they had one player that was good to a certain extent. Snow Cone was another one that came VERY close, but One-Eyed Jack barely edged out it. In the end, the three I voted for were ones I felt were utter garbage with NO redeemable value.  :oops:  :roll:

And this one is unanimous!

Blackbeard, Cricket Cage, and Bifocal Monocle are the three biggest shames in the Legends series. Thanks for everyone for taking apart in these daily polls.  :mrred:
