Re: Rate the Legends Room - Day 8: Lightning Ball Room

I also have mixed feelings about the Lightning Room. On one hand, the objective was unique and thought it was an interesting concept. On the other hand though, it was definitely out of place in an Ancient Temple like the Paintbrush mentioned. But then again, rooms like the Mine Shaft and Laser Light Room were a little out of place too. The objective was also pretty short-lived and only lasted one layout and it was only required when players made the bad decision to ride the slow ass elevator. My idea to make this room better was to have the contestants complete the objective before they could ride the elevator. You know, to "power it up" or something like that. I give this room a 6.

I gave the Lightning Ball room a 5. I enjoy the room in concept at the lightning effect was really cool, but it just doesn't make sense in the temple.

The Mine Shaft fit just fine in the temple to me, but I sort of agree about the Laser Light Room. And even the latter room was executed better. At least you HAD to complete the objective to move forward. The Lightning Room didn't do that.

I gave the Lightning (Ball) Room a 6. It was an OK room that was terribly executed.

I noticed someone gave it an 8. Admittedly I would've ranked it that high if the objective were more challenging. Which like I said before, if the players were actually required to complete the objective en route to the Mine Shaft.

I'm the person who gave it an 8. This is one of my favoritr rooms. I loved the lightning effect when this room was completed. I wish they would have put this room in a different room space.

The lightning effect was really really cool. I wish they would have used it for something else. And a different room space would have also helped.

And with a non solid 6 average, time to end the poll for the Lightning Ball Room.

Up next is The Dungeon. ;)

I gave this room a 1. What an ugly looking room! It was just some dark, dreary looking room with oversized blue mats, and nothing but ladders. Seriously, you just climb ladders, or bust through a wall. Not hard at all. Give me the elevator rooms any day. :roll:

I gave the Dungeon a 1. This was one of the worst ideas on the show. It was literally just an empty room with two ladders and two skeletons thrown in it in order to give this room a "theme". This room was so bad that it made the Well look like one of the best ideas ever. :roll: Also, Kirk's comments about the skeletons being "former contestants" in every single run was so old and lame too. Overall, this room was lame, uninspiring, and a waste of space. I HATE THE DUNGEON.  :x

I don't see your vote on the poll. It only shows my vote.

EDIT: Never mind, it's up.

I gave this room a 2.

How do you screw up a DUNGEON?!?

My question is: How can you screw up designing a room? And like Stone Marker mentioned above, Kirk's commentary of this room was so embarrassing. "Oh, there's a contestant there who didn't make it out!" Yeah, real clever Kirk. :roll: And then we had contestants (like Kristen and Jackie), who couldn't even bust through a wall. I swear, this room sucked in so many ways. :oops:

In the room's defense, it's not the Dungeon's fault if a player couldn't bust through the wall.

But still, it didn't make it any easier to watch. And by the looks of the poll, I have a feeling this room is gonna rank just as bad as the Heart Room.
