Welcome to the Legends of the Hidden Temple "Best Legends win" tournament. In this tournament, we are trying to figure out the best win in the history of Legends. Every day I will hold a series of different matchups that will feature two wins on the show. Your job is to pick what episode you believe is the better of the two. After 24 hours. the episode with the most vote will proceed onto the next round.

RULES:
- Each matchup will be open for a total of 24 hours. Once that window of time is up, the winner of the poll will be revealed.
- You are allowed to change your vote anytime during the 24 hour window. But the last vote before time is up is the one that will be final.
- All you have to simply do is select which of the two wins that you feel deserves to progress longer.
- You don't have to reveal your vote to the public, that is only optional. Your vote will be confidential until the 24 hour time frame is up.
- Please vote in the poll! The more people that vote, the more fun this tournament will be. All it takes is less than 30 seconds to vote.
- Have fun

In yesterday's matchup, "The Ivory Hunting Horn of Roland" beat ":roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll::roll:" 5-0. That means "Roland" will advance to the next round.

***FEATURED MATCHUP***

"THE COLLAR OF DAVY CROCKETT"

VS.

"THE HELMET OF GENGHIS KHAN"

Interesting matchup... both involve a set of wins that were neither spectacular or memorable. Both teams had simple layouts and were not very exciting either. For this matchup though, I am going to go with "The Helmet of Genghis Khan". The team in "Genghis Khan" put up a better effort than the "Davy Crockett" kids IMO. Becca may have walked through the temple, but Taylor followed up on her steps well and even reached the Helmet after she was taken out one room away. The ending to this run though is a classic, which is a reason why I am choosing it over "Davy Crockett".

As for "Davy Crockett", that win was almost as simple as our ":roll:" smiley train win, I thought Shannon was pretty decent and she had a good strategy, but Adam was entirely slow and made no effort to speed up after grabbing the Collar. There is no reason why this team had to finish with four seconds on the clock with such a simple layout. But either way, neither win is too exciting but I think the ending to "Genghis Khan" alone solidifies my pick for this win.

Another match-up featuring mediocre wins. :roll:

I'll pick Genghis Khan as well. Both players were good and moved at an average pace. Adam from the Davy Crockett run was slow and really didn't prove himself to be good, thus dragging the run down.

Yup, Helmet of Genghis Khan for me too. For same reasons as everyone else.

I have a feeling this matchup is going to be closer than you think. ;)

But yeah, Adam almost killed the win for his team. He didn't even bother to speed up after grabbing the Collar. I use to like this win a lot, but that was for Shannon and she actually had a good temple strategy too. But Adam was almost Jeremy bad and luckily he didn't have a stupid victory dance. And now that I recall, didn't the Silver Snakes in this episode win their final temple game before the tiebreaker?  :o

Yeah, they barely won their third temple game. And naturally won the tiebreaker not long after.

I thought so. I remember outer space would constantly rag on Shannon and Adam for winning their last temple game only. And I am pretty sure that they finished last in the moat also. So in a way, they kind of scraped by their episode to get to the temple. But I still like their win over a certain other team that got to the temple the same way.  :roll:

Isn't this the first time we don't have a clean sweep? :o

Indeed it is the first time that one win didn't sweep the other win. I am keeping track of the matchup records in the bracket that I have posted in the first posts. But I figured that this matchup wouldn't feature one win sweeping the other win. After all, both of these wins are about on par with each other. In the future, we will probably have more matchups like this as we weave out the more weaker wins. And it makes the matchups more interesting too. ;)
