Title: Best Legends Room by Room Space - Day 11: Lower entrance room
Post by: The Red Jaguars on June 28, 2013, 01:30:12 PM
I decided to make another daily poll since the Legends discussion has been a little slow around here the past few days. Throughout the three seasons of Legends, the temple has witnessed many different rooms. Some rooms remained unchanged for a couple of seasons while others went after a short period of time. The most unique thing about the temple though was that the temple framework itself didn't change. Meaning, there was always 12 rooms of the temple. Everyday, I am going to make a poll for each of the 11 room spaces of the temple to see which is the best room of that certain room space. We won't do the Shrine since that was the only room ever in that room space.

Results:
Top entrance room - Crypt (6 votes)
Top of the central shaft - Observatory - Stone Column (6 votes), King's Storeroom - S3 (1 vote)
Center of the Room - Chamber of the Sacred Markers (4 votes), Room of the Mandarin Hand (2 votes)
Right of Shrine - King's Storeroom S2 (4 votes), Room of the Ancient Warrior (1 vote)
Upper Corner Room - Room of the Secret Password (6 votes)
Lower Corner Room - Quicksand Bog (5 votes)
Golden Doors Room - Dark Forest (6 votes)
Swamp/Jester's Court space - Jester's Court (6 votes), Bamboo Forest (1 vote)
Bottom of the Central Shaft - Laser Light Room (6 votes)
Pit of Despair - Pit of the Pendulum (7 votes)

Today, we will look at the top entrance room. What do you think was the best room in the top entrance room space? For reference, the rooms include:
The Room of Three Gargoyles (S1L1-L8)
The Room of the Royal Gongs (S1L8-L9)
The Crypt (S2 and S3)

I will state my vote in my next post.  :P

I voted for the Crypt as the best room in that entire room space. :P It was a very memorable room and much better than the S1 rooms in that space. The scenery was pretty neat and the skeleton's lines were very memorable too. I wouldn't have even mind if the Crypt return for another season.

I didn't mind the Gargoyles either. But the room was so bland and no where near as memorable as the Crypt. The Royal Gongs were short-lived and just a rip-off of the Gargoyles. So lame.

This. Crypt it is.

Post by: The Red Jaguars on June 30, 2013, 12:29:42 AM
And that is it for the top entrance room space! The Crypt wins this one unanimously as the best room in that space.

Now, we will move onto the top of the central shaft. Here are the featured rooms:
Observatory - Sundial (S1L1-L7)
Observatory - Celestial Lights (S1L8-L9)
Observatory - Stone Column (S2)
King's Storeroom - S3
Title: Re: Best Legends Room by Room Space - Day 2: Top of Central Shaft
Post by: The Red Jaguars on June 30, 2013, 12:33:26 AM
I always thought the Stone Column Observatory was the best top of the central shaft room. The objective was pretty unique and was not too easy or hard like the other rooms. It was also pretty memorable and actually required skill to complete it faster. The King's Storeroom was good too, but I liked the S2 version better than the S3 one. I hated the camera angle of the room and I preferred when the contestants completed the objective with their hands.

The other two Observatories were lame.  :roll:
Title: Re: Best Legends Room by Room Space - Day 2: Top of Central Shaft
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on June 30, 2013, 03:09:03 PM
I voted for the Observatory Stone Column. It just fit perfectly as a top central shaft room.
Title: Re: Best Legends Room by Room Space - Day 2: Top of Central Shaft
Post by: The Red Jaguars on June 30, 2013, 11:11:37 PM
I think we are ready to move onto our next room space. The best top of the central shaft winner is the Stone Column. While not unanimous, it does get the majority vote.

Next room space we will cover is the "Center of the Temple". The rooms here consist of:

Heart Room (S1L1-L8, S2L1)
Room of Fallen Columns (S1L9)
Medusa's Lair (S2L2-L4)
Room of the Mandarin Hand (S2L5)
Chamber of the Sacred Markers (S3)
Title: Re: Best Legends Room by Room Space - Day 3: Center of the Room
Post by: The Red Jaguars on June 30, 2013, 11:14:45 PM
I went with the Room of the Mandarin Hand as my vote. It was either that room, or the Chamber of the Sacred Markers. I liked the Mandarin Hand slightly better though even though they could've done better with this room. It definitely deserved more air time on the show though and was MUCH better than Medusa's Lair. And while the Chamber had a neat design, I thought it was too time consuming. If the Room of the Mandarin Hand got rid of the Heart Room background and changed the objective up a little bit, it would've been perfect.

Medusa's Lair was cool too I will admit. But it was way too time consuming and broken half of the time. The Heart Room was lame and the Fallen Columns was sort of lame too...  :roll:
Title: Re: Best Legends Room by Room Space - Day 3: Center of the Room
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on July 01, 2013, 07:56:43 PM
I voted for the Room of the Mandarin Hand. Truth be told, it was probably the only center of the room space room that I liked.
Title: Re: Best Legends Room by Room Space - Day 3: Center of the Room
Post by: The Red Jaguars on July 01, 2013, 09:29:21 PM
Well, it looks like this one is sort of closer. The Chamber of the Sacred Markers win this poll, with the Room of the Mandarin Hand not so far behind.

Our next room space is the Treasure Room/Ancient Warriors room space. The featured rooms include:

Room of the Golden Idols
Treasure Room (S1L4-L8)  :oops:
Treasury of the Golden Orbs (S1L9)
King's Storeroom (S2)
Room of the Ancient Warriors (S3)
Title: Re: Best Legends Room by Room Space - Day 4: Treasure Room/Ancient Warriors
Post by: The Red Jaguars on July 01, 2013, 09:33:50 PM
The best room in this room space was the S2 version of the King's Storeroom. That was a very memorable and fun room. I liked this version of the room MUCH better than the S3 version. I don't know, I just found it more interesting when the contestants smashed the pots with their bare hands. I always wanted to do this myself. :P Plus, the pots looked pretty neat in S2 one also.

The Room of the Ancient Warriors was also great. But the room was a little cramped and I hate when the contestants wasted time trying to put themselves into armors when a door was already open. But I do like the unique temple guard encounters and this one comes close, but the King's Storeroom was better.

I hate the Treasure Room.  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :oops:  :oops:  :oops:  :oops:

Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on July 01, 2013, 09:35:44 PM
I also voted for the S2 King's Storeroom. This version was much better than that of Season 3. It's easily the best room out of this room space.
Title: Re: Best Legends Room by Room Space - Day 4: Treasure Room/Ancient Warriors
Post by: GreenMonkeys#1 on July 01, 2013, 09:37:41 PM
King's Storeroom here, but Ancient Warriors are my 2nd choice
Title: Re: Best Legends Room by Room Space - Day 4: Treasure Room/Ancient Warriors
Post by: The Red Jaguars on July 02, 2013, 08:58:02 PM
And the S2 King's Storeroom gets the most vote for this room space!

Now we move onto our next room space. We are skipping the Shrine since that room never changed and it was the best room anyways. :P I am going to move onto the Upper Corner Space next. The rooms in this space includes:

Room of Three Torches (S1L1-L2, S1L6-L9)
Pirate's Cove (S1L3-L5)
Viper's Nest (S2L1-L2)
Lightning Room (S2L3)
Room of the Secret Password (S2L4-S3)
Title: Re: Best Legends Room by Room Space - Day 5: Upper Corner Room
Post by: The Red Jaguars on July 02, 2013, 09:03:15 PM
The new poll is set. For me, the best room in this room space was an easy pick - Room of the Secret Password. None of the rooms prior to the Secret Password were that great anyways. Maybe it had something to do with those objectives not being complete most of the time. And most of those rooms prior to the Secret Password were pretty easy anyways. And truth be told, the Secret Password wasn't great itself until S3 where it was required to be completed. But yeah, the Secret Password gets my vote either way. :P
Title: Re: Best Legends Room by Room Space - Day 5: Upper Corner Room
Post by: GreenMonkeys#1 on July 02, 2013, 09:09:15 PM
Obviously the Secret Password here. It was a unique Season 3 room but rarely completed.

I hate the Torch Room :roll:
Title: Re: Best Legends Room by Room Space - Day 5: Upper Corner Room
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on July 02, 2013, 09:50:06 PM
I also voted for the Room of the Secret Password. The Lightning Room was a neat room, but it really wasn't used often.
Title: Re: Best Legends Room by Room Space - Day 5: Upper Corner Room
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on July 02, 2013, 10:05:56 PM
I love the Lightning Room the most of those choices. However, since this is "best" room, I went with Secret Password. It was completed more often than the other objectives and required some effort to complete. The passwords themselves were unique too.
Title: Re: Best Legends Room by Room Space - Day 5: Upper Corner Room
Post by: The Red Jaguars on July 03, 2013, 11:14:35 PM
And the Secret Password wins this one unanimously. I like the Lightning Ball Room too, but it only lasted one layout unfortunately and not many people entered the room. It would've been neat if the players actually had to complete the room objective in order for the Mine Shaft elevator to work.

And speaking of the Mine Shaft, we are now moving onto the room space that contains that room. The featured room spacesi nclude:

Mine Shaft (S1L1-L2, S2)
Dungeon (S1L3-L5)
Well (S1L6-L9)
Quicksand Bog (S3)
Title: Re: Best Legends Room by Room Space - Day 6: Lower Corner Room
Post by: The Red Jaguars on July 03, 2013, 11:18:00 PM
I think this one is a pretty obvious choice for me. The Quicksand Bog was definitely the best room in this room space. It was the only real challenging room and not some empty space with an elevator. And unlike the Mine Shaft/Well, the room actually had a varying degree of difficulty and not time consuming for the good contestants. The other three rooms were lame. :roll:
Title: Re: Best Legends Room by Room Space - Day 6: Lower Corner Room
Post by: GreenMonkeys#1 on July 03, 2013, 11:26:25 PM
Quicksand Bog in a landslide!!

Damn, do I hate the Dungeon  :roll: :roll:
Title: Re: Best Legends Room by Room Space - Day 6: Lower Corner Room
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on July 04, 2013, 09:25:11 AM
Count me in for another vote for the Quicksand Bog. All the other rooms were just lame.
Title: Re: Best Legends Room by Room Space - Day 6: Lower Corner Room
Post by: The Red Jaguars on July 04, 2013, 01:35:40 PM
Since this poll was pretty obvious on who the winner is, I am going to move onto the next room space.

Our next room space is the Golden Doors room. There were only two rooms altogether:

Tomb of the Ancient Kings (S1)
Dark Forest (S2-S3)
Title: Re: Best Legends Room by Room Space - Day 7: Golden Doors
Post by: The Red Jaguars on July 04, 2013, 01:42:59 PM
I think the best room is pretty obvious here too. :P The Dark Forest gets my vote. Next to the Shrine, I think this is the most iconic and memorable room on the show. The Temple Spirit captures were unique and the atmosphere of the room was awesome. In fact, this is my second favorite room on the whole show!

While I liked the Dark Forest a lot, the Tomb of the Ancient Kings was a good room also. It was pretty unique also and the temple guard encounters in this room were a classic.  :mrred:
Title: Re: Best Legends Room by Room Space - Day 7: Golden Doors
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on July 04, 2013, 10:49:46 PM
Dark Forest easily. This was easily one of the best rooms of the temple.
Title: Re: Best Legends Room by Room Space - Day 7: Golden Doors
Post by: The Red Jaguars on July 06, 2013, 02:54:02 PM
I can't believe I forgot to update this yesterday. It looks like the Dark Forest wins this one though.

And the next room space will be the Swamp/Jester's Court space. The featured rooms include:
Swamp (S1L1, S1L4-L5, S2L1-L3)
Spider's Lair (S1L3-L4)
Bamboo Forest (S1L6)
Holes of Python (S1L7-L9)
Jester's Court (S2L4-S3)
Title: Re: Best Legends Room by Room Space - Day 8: Swamp/Jester's Court
Post by: The Red Jaguars on July 06, 2013, 02:57:40 PM
I think the "Jester's Court" is the pretty obvious choice for the best room in this room space. It was the only room that actually had an objective in this space. Plus, it was one of the most iconic rooms on the show. And compared to the other 4 rooms, this vote was way too easy.

Although I do have a soft spot for the Bamboo Forest. It definitely deserved more air time than 5 episode. And the design looked pretty beat. I like this room a lot, but the Jester's Court was easily better.
Title: Re: Best Legends Room by Room Space - Day 8: Swamp/Jester's Court
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on July 06, 2013, 03:05:31 PM
I voted for the Jester's Court. At least it wasn't some lame hit the actuator room. Though like TRJ said, I liked the Bamboo Forest also.
Title: Re: Best Legends Room by Room Space - Day 8: Swamp/Jester's Court
Post by: The Red Jaguars on July 07, 2013, 12:41:31 PM
Well, it looks like the Bamboo Forest got some love since it got one vote. :P But the Jester's Court still wins this round with the majority votes!

The next room space is the bottom of the central shaft. The featured rooms include:
Throne Room (S1L1-L3, S1L7-L9, S2L1-L2)
Room of Harmonic Convergence (S1L4-L6)
Laser Light Room (S2L3-L5)
Tomb of the Headless Kings (S3)
Title: Re: Best Legends Room by Room Space - Day 9: Bottom of the Central Shaft
Post by: The Red Jaguars on July 07, 2013, 12:47:30 PM
The best bottom of the central shaft room to me is the Laser Light Room. I know the Tomb of the Headless Kings seems like the more logical choice, but that room was filled with too many flaws. It was way too time consuming, too cramped, and too dark also. It sometimes took up to 30 seconds to complete that room. The Laser Light Room may have been simple, but at least the objective was still unique and the special effects were cool also. Plus, it required some sort of talent to complete at least. Some contestants like Nick from "Charles Lindbergh" tore the room apart while other contestants like Steve from "Silk Sash" took too long to complete the room.

I might've even voted the Room of Hamonic Convergence if it wasn't broken half of the time.  :roll:

Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on July 07, 2013, 05:24:01 PM
I voted for the Laser Light Room, for the same reasons as TRJ. It was a neat looking room. Much more interesting to look at than the Tomb of the Headless Kings, that was way too cramped and dark.
Title: Re: Best Legends Room by Room Space - Day 9: Bottom of the Central Shaft
Post by: The Red Jaguars on July 08, 2013, 12:56:27 PM
Well, it looks like the Laser Light Room wins this room space unanimously. :P I thought it would be closer, but I am glad that the Laser Light Room won.  :mrsilver:

And our next room space is the Pit of Despair. The featured rooms include:
Wall Climb (S1L1-L4)
Wheel Room (S1L5-L9)
Pit of Despair (S2L1-L2)
Rock Quarry (S2L3)
Rope Swing (S2L4-L5)
Pit of the Pendulum (S3)
Title: Re: Best Legends Room by Room Space - Day 10: Pit of Despair
Post by: The Red Jaguars on July 08, 2013, 01:00:08 PM
The Pit of the Pendulum gets my vote. There was a couple of good Pit room spaces, but this variation was the best and most memorable. It was like an actual objective and I did like how it showed all the unlocked doors once the column was knocked down. Plus, there was a couple of different ways to complete the room too. The Rock Quarry was also cool too, but I am not too much of a fan of a room that limits choices.
Title: Re: Best Legends Room by Room Space - Day 10: Pit of Despair
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on July 08, 2013, 03:16:25 PM
I voted for the Pit of Pendulum. It was the only pit room that was NOT just "hit the actuator." It was an actual objective, like TRJ said.
Title: Re: Best Legends Room by Room Space - Day 10: Pit of Despair
Post by: The Red Jaguars on July 12, 2013, 01:03:22 PM
Oops, one more room space to go! The Pit of the Pendulum wins the vote for the best Pit room space. ;)

And our final room space to cover is the bottom entrance room. The featured rooms are:
Cave of Sighs (S1)
Ledges (S2-S3)
Title: Re: Best Legends Room by Room Space - Day 11: Lower entrance room
Post by: The Red Jaguars on July 12, 2013, 01:06:41 PM
I voted for the Ledges as the best lower entrance room. It was way more realistic than the Cave of Sighs. It actually required the contestants to navigate and it did give quite a few players some problems. Like Tony from "Billy the Kid" and Jason from "Icarus". It also looked better than the Cave of Sighs too. I did like how the contestants could enter the Cave of Sighs right from the temple gate, but the room space looks like of hideous with that color and it stuck out like a sore thumb too.
Title: Re: Best Legends Room by Room Space - Day 11: Lower entrance room
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on July 12, 2013, 03:05:00 PM
I voted for the Legdes, but I liked the Cave of Sighs too.
