Rate the Legends Room - Day 43: Jester's Court
« on: June 06, 2014, 11:47:05 PM »
****CREDIT GOES TO THE RED JAGUARS/STONE MARKER AND AIMYOURBRENT FOR THE IDEA****

So not long ago, a request to rehash an old poll/topic came to my attention, and I decided to take them up on that. Basically, we're rating the rooms on a scale of 1-10. Just like we've been rating moat crossings and color combinations. I figured we'd start a new topic on this. I could've bumped the other thread, but then it would make the original topic look too cluttery. So I figured we could start fresh. ;)

And here's the basis of voting, as said in the original topic: So every day in the original post, I will have a temple room that you can vote for with a new poll. You can place a vote on scale of 1 (bad) - 10 (good). You can vote for a room on any basis: appearance, difficulty, objective, memorableness, etc. Once the poll is done, the poll will be averaged and the average score will be posted.

So let's get this restarted, shall we? ;) We will start with the Heart Room.

I gave this room a 2. This was easily the most useless room on the show. I mean, you just hit a bunch of actuators, seriously. And some contestants STILL managed to get lost in that room. :roll: The only thing that kept me from giving it a 1? The wallpaper. I really liked the way the room looked with that wallpaper, it was actually a nice touch. But the objective was so ridiculously simplistic, it really drags it down for me. :roll:

Okay look, I don't want all the ridicule I know I'll get for this, lol, but I gave the good old useless Heart Room a 3, based entirely on nostalgia!

When the show first came on the air I loved it, and the Heart Room was memorable for me as a kid, being that bright shade of red with the arteries stemming out, it really looked cool when I was young. It wasn't as iconic to me as the Shrine, Observatory, or Throne Room, but it always stood out to me.

Obviously, if you were first exposed to Legends at a later age, or at a later season, and thanks to our ability to reflect on the show and production quality aspects, it falls sort of flat in retrospect. And I understand that.

I know most of the forum will give this room a 1 and I get that and I have no argument against that. But I also had to be true to myself. Honestly, I was going to go as high as a 4 just for nostalgia factor, but I didn't want to anger the forum by boosting the average up that high. I know most of you probably expect and maybe even hope this room finishes last in the rankings, and that's fine. But I couldn't give it a 1 or 2.
Top 10 episodes:
1. Lucky Pillow of Annie Taylor
2. Lion Headed Bracelet of Chandragupta
3. Applewood Amulet of Emiliano Zapata
4. Milk Bucket of Freydis
5. Jewel Encrusted Egg of Catherine the Great
6. Much Heralded Helmet of Sir Gawain
7. Snakeskin Boots of Billy the Kid
8. John Sutter and the Map to the Lost Goldmine
9. Lawrence of Arabia's Headdress
10. Discarded Seal of Ivan the Terrible

Well, I gave it a 2 solely for the wallpaper. Since like I said above, looked really nice. But what kills it for that room is the utterly boring and tired "hit the actuator" objective. Hell they even kept the wallpaper for Season 2 for Medusa's Lair and the Room of the Mandarin Hand. Which may or may not say a lot. I definitely wouldn't mind this room (or the Treasure Room) finishing in last place though.

I gave this room a lowly 1. It was such a lame room, and it is sad that the producers left it in the temple for most of Season 1 before realizing that it was too easy. Not that the Room of Fallen Columns did it any justice. I do agree that the wallpaper was cool though. It actually looked like an actual human heart in a way. But the fact it was empty space makes me frown on this room. So lame and uninspiring, which is why it gets the lowest score possible.

Can I give this room a 0? :lol:
Favourite Team: Red Jaguars
Favourite Episode: The Jewel-Encrusted Egg of Catherine the Great, tied with the Mussel Shell Armor of Apanuugpak and the Lost Hornpipe of the Pirate Captain
Favourite Season: Season 3

When artists like LMFAO, Ke$ha, Taylor Swift, Carly Rae Jespen and Justin Bieber and songs like "Party Rock Anthem", "Call Me Maybe", "Thrift Shop" and others are succeeding in today's music industry and about 99% of the world is buying their shit and any argument you make is followed by nonsense from these people, you would wish the world had ended on 21st December 2012.

Sorry for driving the average up slightly. Again, it's purely a nostalgia factor for me, plus the room did look pretty cool.

I gave this room a 2. The room looked cool, and didn't try to seem like anything more than it is. Unlike SOME ROOMS *coughtreasureroomcough*

Good to see this poll has gotten quite a bit of votes so far. Good thing I rehashed this topic, and gave both TRJ and Brent credit for it.

You're welcome. ;)

I am not surprised to see the Heart Room get some votes higher than a 1. A lot of people gave it a 2 in the other topic. At least this room wasn't pretending to be something special... like the Treasure Room. I HATE the Treasure Room.  :evil:  :x

TRJ, if you ever get 3 strikes in one of our temple games, you get locked in the Treasure Room for an eternity.
