****CREDIT GOES TO THE RED JAGUARS/STONE MARKER FOR THE IDEA****

So over a year ago, we had a topic rating all the Legends wins, much like we are doing with the Legends Rooms thread. So just like the other polls, vote for how much you like a win on a scale of 1-10. I thought this would be another interesting topic/poll to rehash, especially since opinions change in over a year. And hopefully this will get enough votes and be popular enough. ;)

So let's restart this thread, shall we? ;) We will start with "The Jeweled Scabbard of Sforza."

I gave this win a 7. I really like this win, I find it very underrated. Yes Lacey and Asher's layout was simple, but it was still a very exciting run and it was great to see them win. I also loved both Lacey and Asher's enthusiasm when they won. Especially Lacey chopping her feet in excitement after Asher crosses the temple gates. Plus, being forced up the central shaft in a Season 3 temple is no easy feat. It was a very charitable win with it being the final filming day, but I like this win and I think Lacey and Asher deserved to win. ;)

I have this win a 6. Not because I don't like this win but just because comparatively, it doesn't compare to some of the iconic wins that deserve 8, 9, and 10 rankings. Solid win, fairly easy and winnable layout, but overall pretty good.
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

I gave the Sforza win a 6. In the first topic, I gave it a 4 which is way too low. But I am giving it some more credit this time around. ;) As for the run itself, it was a decent win and the temple layout is not as easy as people make it out to be. The central shaft was very time consuming for Season 3 and Lacey and Asher handled it well. I enjoy this win, but I don't really think highly of it either. It was way too obvious that the layout was favorable for Lacey and Asher. But I liked their enthusiasm though. Good win, but it is not as strong  as most other Season 3 wins.

Actually you gave it a 5 the first time around. ;)

But yeah, this layout really wasn't as easy as it's made out to be. Short path yes, but not easy by any means. Like I said before, traversing up the central shaft in Season 3 is never an easy feat, even if you are Jessica and Jarrid. :o

No easy feat for sure, but if you're fast and know what you're doing, it should take you no more than 20 seconds per room including climbing the ladders. Although, the Tomb of the Headless Kings was often an annoyingly long room to complete.

I don't really mind this win at all. I know it is overrated to some people, but this win never really bothered me that much. Maybe once in a while if it gets too much love, I might call it overrated. But I have no problem with Sforza. Same with Enormous Iron Nose Ring and Joel. I honestly don't mind the win at all until people excessively love it.

Yeah, same here. And I DID just say in my reasoning that I DO like this win and call it underrated. ;) I much prefer it over wins like Tall Turban, Silver Horseshoe, etc. AKA runs that get WAY too much love for no reason at all.

I don't know, I don't think anyone is gonna vote in these polls. I don't think this thread is gonna be popular at all. Should I still update it if it doesn't get enough votes? I'm already having second thoughts. =/

Didn't you just start this poll 10 minutes ago and now you want to close it?  ;)

Well, what I meant is, what if I started this thread too soon and it doesn't really catch on, at all? But, this IS a new thread after all, so obviously it's gonna take some time. I'll see how things go by next update. ;)

I say give it a few days and see how popular it is. If you are not happy with the number of votes, then you can decide whether to keep it open or not. ;) And most of these threads are averaging 5 votes, so they are getting some decent attention right now. Perhaps in the next week or two we will get a new member or an old member that might start voting again. I remember last summer we had THK return for voting and then new members like Neko and LoL voting. PP4L and Viper haven't been on for a few days, so maybe they will join in?  ;)

Maybe we will get some different members voting in the polls. I don't know about PP4L or Viper, but we should get at least 5 votes in this thread. That's the average amount for me, and that's how many votes the rooms thread has been getting lately. Either way, I am glad to have rehashed this thread. And with only 32 wins, it shouldn't take long at all. ;)

I gave this win an 8. :mrorange: This was by far my favorite Orange Iguanas victory and episode. Elizabeth and Jason were a solid team, and their temple run was very exciting. Their layout may have been a little simplistic, but it didn't matter. Plus, you gotta love Jason's utilizing of the Pit rope with the dog leash. This was the only Orange Iguanas team victory, and boy did Elizabeth and Jason earn it. :mrorange:
