Female Players Temple Tiers
« on: March 08, 2013, 02:54:03 PM »
I am surprised that we never tried this out before at all. Anyways, I want to try and make a comprehensive tier list that involves all of the female temple runners that entered Olmec's Temple. The tier system is pretty much split up into five categories, and out of these five categories, we will try and fit every female contestant into one. Here is how the tiers will pan out:

Best of the Best (Tier#1): This tier involves female players whose temple performance was pivotal to their team's performance in the temple. They contributed the most and had a major impact on the outcome of their run. Their was hardly in holes or flaws in their performance.

Great, but Flawed (Tier #2): This tier will include the female players who had a significant impact in the temple run and had a positive effect on their team. However, their performance might've been flawed and might've had a slight negative effect on the final outcome of their temple runs.

Average (Tier #3): This tier will feature the female players who just didn't stick out as doing anything important. Their temple performance really didn't contribute much to the outcome nor was it detrimental to it either.

Mediocre (Tier #4): This tier will feature the female players that did more harm than good to their respective temple runs. While they were detrimental to their teams, they still had some redeeming value.

Lost Cause (Tier #5): These female players were a huge detrimental factor for their temple runs. Their performance has no redeeming value and it would've been better if they never entered the temple at all.

I already placed some female players into the tiers below, but haven't covered every single player because I want your input on where you think some of the players should be placed at. So in this whole topic, discuss where you think every female player should be. I encourage you to not do all female players at once since that would be too overwhelming and it is easier to discuss them in pieces.

Veronica, Dana, Lauren, and all three Kims should go under Lost Cause, IMO.

Agreed, I don't know how I missed Kim from "Lost Hammer" either.  :shock: The only one that I kind of disagree with is Kimerbly from "Poseidon". I think she should go into the Mediocre tier. She was doing alright up until she reached the Broken Trident. It was only when she reached the artifact when she became sucky. Although she was slow throughout the whole temple. I will put her there for now and see what other people think.

And I am assuming you are referring to Lauren from "William Tell" too. ;)

Also, I added a list add the bottom of the page for all the female players that have not been placed into tier yet.

You might want to fix the spelling on "Keeli" and remove Tiffany's last name. Since we can all agree that's not really her last name. ;)

Also, Jennifer from "John Sutter" should go into the amazing category as well.

Whoops, I copied one of the really old lists from the old elimination games. I fixed Tiffani, Keeli, and Aqila's spelling. ;)

And I agree with Jennifer too. I think she should go in the very top tier.

And where do you guys think the three Kristens should go? I say "Catherine the Great" one should go in the very top tier. The "Amelia Earhart" one should go in the very bottom tier. What about the Polynesian Girl one?

Tiffani's last name isn't Milford, since we established that interview was a fake. ;) That said, she's definitely either Tier 1 or Tier 2 material, and I'm thinking Tier 1 considering the rooms and difficulties she had to go through.

I also think Yakerra belongs in the top tier, since her only real mistake was trying the Temple Guard door in the rush to escape.  But it didn't cost her and she ended up with the fastest legit win on the show.

Last one for now is Jennifer from "The Dragon Lady and the Blue Pearl," who I think fits pretty well in Tier 2.  She was pretty fast and did well in the Tomb from what I recall, but I have to wonder if maybe she could've made a better dive for the Blue Pearl at the end to try and grab it before time ran out.  Looking back at it, it felt like she spent too much time reaching for it from too far away.

That was already fixed, TAW. Check the above posts. ;)

As for the Kristin's, Catherine the Great's Kristin should be the top tier, Polynesian Girl Kristen fits in at Tier 2, and Lucky Pig's Kristen would go all the way at the bottom. As for Yakerra, I still find her wildly overrated. But she could fit into the first tier. Agreed with Jennifer from Blue Pearl's position as well. She was great, but she needs to learn to crawl honestly.

I don't really have any problems with those. For Tiffani, her only problem was her speed. But I can overlook that since she did many things right and she dragged that big Helmet out with no problem. If she goes into the top spot, I think Tarrah should also.

Not sure about Yakerra being in the very top spot, but I think #2 would be good too. But I will place her in the very top spot and see what other people say.

Agreed with Jennifer from Blue Pearl, although she really shouldn't have gone for that dramatic dive.

Also, Jackie from "Oracle Bowl" and Heather from "Snow Cone" can fit into the "Lost Cause" category as well. Also, you might want to remove Sabrina from the uncateorized list. Since we can all agree she was a lost cause. ;)

I think Olivia-Emma and Andrea should go in Tier #1, and Randy in Tier #2 (if just because of her exit plan).

On a side note, should we do a thread for the male players?

I think one for the male players would be a great idea

And I think Jennifer from Buddha should be either Tier 2 or 3.

And send Karisa from Me Linh to Lost Cause.

Here is my thoughts:

Jackie: Agreed, she was terrible and hardly made any progress with 2:00+ minutes to herself.
Heather: Definitely agree. In fact, I am glad that I am not the only one that found her to be a lost cause. She didn't even make any progress with a minute left to herself. And she was to blame for the Shrine door opening.

Andrea: Agreed, she was awesome.
Olivia-Emma: Agreed, and even though she passed the half-pendant, it didn't have an impact on the final outcome of her run and she did everything else right.
Randy: I think #2 is good enough for her also. If she had a better exit plan, than I would've put her in the very top.

Jennifer (Buddha): I think #2 is a good spot for her. She was a slow contestant, but she still got the job done and knew what she was doing.
Karisa: Agreed, there is nothing good about her at all.

I think all of these girls should be in Tier #3 (Average). While they are from a victorious team, they were just average runners and their partners were the ones that earned them their win. Hopefully nobody disagrees with any of these.

Also, where would you guys put Elisa from "Ivan the Terrible" at? Even though she is a temple loser, do you think she should go into the very top tier? I wouldn't mind putting her there. Same with Leah from "Belle Boyd". They didn't do anything wrong, they had hard layouts.

And I don't mind making a male list also. In fact, that was going to be the plan sooner or later. I could definitely make it tonight when I get home from work and work on it from there. Unless someone wants to make it ahead of time, which by all means go ahead. ;)

I'd put Leah into Tier 2, because reviewing the episode, the Pit-Chamber passage did open when she knocked over the column.  I think it's the better strategic choice in most situations where you can go to either the Chamber or the King's Storeroom from the Pit, and since the King's Storeroom was an obvious redirect to the Chamber here, going there did cost the team precious time.

I would definitely put Elisa in Tier 1, though.  She and Travis were both amazing players, the production crew was just feeling evil that day.
