Re: Rate the Legends Win - Day 13: The Silver Horseshoe of Butch Cassidy

I am going to give Butch Cassidy a score of a 3. To me, this is one of my bottom 5 wins on the show. You are not the best solo win on the show just because you had a quick victory. Honestly, there is nothing really likable about this victory. Paula's temple layout was very lucky and easy. Every room she entered had some kind of "hit an actuator" objective or the room didn't really need to be completed at all. The victory itself is pretty lame and unexciting, and I never bother to go back and watch it. Between her and Mitchell, I am not sure whose victory I can't stand more. Just a lame and overrated win. :roll:

I give it a 2, this is one of the most overrated wins ever. Just because "you're sooo fast" and "look like you know what you're doing" doesn't mean it's the best solo victory in the shows history. Paula did a decent job, but she was just waaaay too lucky. Her layout is basically "The Moccasins of Geronimo" of Season 2, minus switching floors three times. Even if Matt had gone in first, it would still be as unexciting. Paula is easily the most overrated contestant ever besides Mitchell and Joel.

This one was an actuator based journey to the Horseshoe. That means it gets a 2. Boring.

I gave it a 4. It's not the worst win, but it was too easy. However, Paula seemed to have a good idea of what to do and never hesitated. She did good, but got lucky with this layout.

I gave the "Butch Cassidy" run a 4. I don't mind this run, even though it isn't terribly exciting. All of the rooms were "hit the actuator" style rooms, but at least Paula took an interesting path by going from the Heart Room down to the Throne Room and then across the bottom floor. It wasn't her "fault" that the room difficulties and temple guard placements worked in her favor.

And that's end of the line for Butch Cassidy. It ends up with a lowly score of 3.16.

Next is going to be "The Snake Bracelet of Cleopatra".

I am going to give Snake Bracelet a score of a 5. There is not much to say about this win. The layout was pretty simple for the team and it wasn't very exciting or memorable. And there is no reason that this team should've finished with 20 seconds left after having this simple of a layout. Robert was super fast, but Tracy was kind of slow and wasted unnecessary time in the Observatory and Room of Fallen Columns. There are better Silver Snake and Season 1 runs beside this one.

I gave the "Snake Bracelet of Cleopatra" a 4. It was a rather uninspiring win. The path was pretty simplistic. And while Robert was fast, Tracy was the one who spent most of the time in the temple, and she was significantly slower going through the temple. The only truly memorable part of this run for me was when Tracy tried to take the shortcut from the Observatory to the Treasury of Golden Orbs, and ended up breaking the mechanism to unlock the door when Tracy grabbed the Snake Bracelet.

I gave it a 5. Easy layout, but good players.

I gave it a 5 as well. This win was very forgettable and uninspiring.

And that is it for Snake Bracelet. It will finish with a score of 4.80.

I am going to do "The Star of Sultan Saladin" next.

I am going to give Sultan Saladin an 8. This is one of my favorite solo wins on the show and I found it very memorable. Leah did a pretty solid job in the temple and I can't really complain much about her performance. Yeah, she tried to take a direct path. But I am not going to complain much since she did avoid a temple guard in the process. Other than that, I love the little quirks about this run from the Cave of Sighs guard cheering on Leah, her temple guard encounter in the Tomb of the Ancient Kings, and the post temple run ending was pretty memorable with Kirk. A solid performance for the first solo win ever.

I also posted a tentative schedule for the remaining wins that need to be covered. So we will be following this list for the remaining wins and daily polls. ;)

I gave it a 7. So what if Lea tried for a direct path and ate up some time trying to climb there? She was a great player and deserves all the credit she gets. I only gave it a 7 because I found other wins a little more exciting.

I gave the Sultan Saladin run an 8. I find this win very exciting, and I applaud Leah's performance. Her path was much longer than most Season 1 runs, but she did not get tripped up or turned around at any point during the run. Yes, she tried to see if the door leading from the Wall Climb to the Observatory was unlocked, but that took all of 4 seconds, and mishaps have happened before, so that door may have misfired and given her an easy win; I believe that should not be held against her. The temple guard in the Tomb of Ancient Kings was memorable, as was the guard hiding in the corner of the Cave of Sighs. Overall, I enjoy this run and am happy the team won.
