I gave Pecosa Bill a 5. Chris was doing good until he got the Lariat. Then he let the everyone down and blew it with his exit plan. This was a major letdown for the Green Monkeys.

I am going to give Boadicea an 8. It was one of those heartbreaking losses where the team had a chance to score the elusive bottom of the central shaft win, but come up short. The team put up a good effort, but a combination of hesitations by Lissy and a tough temple layout was the downfall for this team. If Lissy moved a little faster in certain rooms, then we would've had an "Emiliano Zapata" type ending. Nate put a great effort though and he was smart to take the top route out of the temple. It was a pretty exciting loss, however I like "The Priceless Portrait of the Polynesian Girl" a little better than this one.

Topics once again merged. Please keep these threads to one topic.

And this run gets a 7. It was a good run, MUCH better than the previous Red Jaguar "bottom central shaft" run. Lissy and Nate probably would have won if Lissy didn't hesitate when she was in the temple.

I gave the "Royal Torque" a 9. I think this was one of the strongest temple run performances of the show. The path was long yet unique and not excessive, the temple guard encounters were memorable, and you can tell these contestants were trying to win. Those three elements define this run as an exciting one. Also, I don't see where Lissy hesitated to much, considering she completed her third room with 1:55 on the clock, which put her right on pace with almost every other Season 3 run.

I also gave it a 9. One of my favorite losses on the show. Lissy was decent, but Nate was awesome! The layout wasn't the easiest either. Plus, the Torque was in the bottom center column room. That makes it more unique.

Went with a 9 as well.  It really looked like Lissy was rattled for a bit by that Temple Guard in the Crypt, but she did pretty well and also cleared the Chamber of the Sacred Markers in great time, which was probably the most time-consuming room on the path aside from the Shrine.  I'd also give her points for regaining her bearings fast enough that she didn't try to go down to the Ledges after pulling on the second book in the Crypt.

Nate was an excellent player too.  The only thing was he had bad luck in rooms like the King's Storeroom.  His exit strategy seemed a little unconventional, but it was very smart because climbing up meant he didn't have to wait for a way out of the Tomb to open and the high road doesn't have anywhere near as many obstacles.  Fifteen seconds wouldn't have been enough to escape had he just stuck with the lower route instead, so all things considered, the only thing that really cost the team the win was luck when it came to specific rooms.
If you have seen all 120 full episodes of Legends, copy and paste this into your profile for all to see.

Just wondering, but is this topic gonna be continued? If no, we can go the survey route like we did with the Legends rooms rankings.

I am all for that idea. That would be a quicker way to get the results for every single "failed escape" run and we won't have to worry about having so many "Rate the __________" threads open. I could make a survey like that was used for the Legends rooms rankings.

I feel this needs bumped because it should be continued. Also, I don't think we need a poll for every run we do. I don't feel that it's necessary to do that every time. ;)

I'd rather we just do a survey to rate the rest of the runs. Just like we did with the Legends rooms. I can set it up if we do continue it.

Personally, I find posting our opinions and scores in these topics to be more fun than taking a quick survey. That's just me though. Anyone else feel this way?

I just thought the survey was quicker, instead of spending weeks finishing this up. If we do decide to do this again, I'd rather we set up another poll. Otherwise, it would be hard to keep track of who voted for who. At least with a poll, we already know where the particular run stands. But, I guess this is up to TRJ, since he was the thread starter.

I forgot that some members like to stay silent about their picks. Maybe a quick poll is the best way to go.
