Boy, you must've been so excited to vote for this win when you come to THIS topic first, then the rooms one. Usually it's the other way around. That really says a lot about this so called "best win ever," doesn't it? ;)

I was jumping up and down when I saw Shaka Zulu in the topic title. I bet you were too.  :mrred:  :mrred:  :mrred:  :mrred:  :mrred:

Hooray for the best temple win ever! :mrred:

And you were right Brent, "Shaka Zulu Day" should be a national holiday. :P

And with a solid 1 average (Yay for no math!), time to end the poll for "The Mask of Shaka Zulu." :oops: :mrred:

Up next is "The Much Heralded Helmet of Sir Gawain." :mrorange:

I gave this run an 8. This was a solid temple performance by Tiffani. She may have been lucky, and she wasn't the fastest, but she got the job done handily. I would've rated this higher if it weren't for Nick Gas playing this episode 1029384756 times. So this win has kind of worn off me a little bit. Plus, it was one of the very first episodes I ever saw. Back when YouTube only had four episodes of the show uploaded. Regardless, this was a great win, and Tiffani did a great job in the temple and made no mistakes. And that's all that matters. ;)

I'm a big fan of Gawain. I think it's slightly underrated in that it doesn't get a lot of love or attention, but it's a great win. Gave it an 8 because 8.5 wasn't an option.

I love Sir Gawain! I don't care how much people complain about Tiffani being slow or lucky with her temple guard layout, she did a solid job in the temple. She was one of the very few contestants to make it back to the platform and she completed her rooms at a reasonable pace. And she did a good job getting the Helmet out of the temple despite its sheer size. She handled her layout just fine and speed is not everything. I enjoy this win despite how many times I have seen it. I am going to give it an 8.  :mrorange:

I also love how after Tiffani crosses the temple gates, ready to pass out, neither Kirk or Jahmel help take the helmet off her hands. They just stand there celebrating, not even attempting to take the helmet from her. :lol:

I gave this win a 5. Sorry, but I think Shane is extremely overrated, and he gets way too much credit for his run. This layout was WAY too easy. The temple guard placement was just asking for a win. Then compare it to Leopard Skin Cloak, where Chandra gets the exact same layout, and makes better time with harder rooms. Only Shane gets to keep going, but because the Purple Parrots are unlucky, Chandra gets taken out one room away. :roll: Any average person would've won with this layout, even players like Renee and Aqila would've won. Shane gets way too much love. I actually think me giving him a 5 is too generous. Either way, he is very overhyped.

Yeah, I gave Ahmed Baba a 5 also. If there is one win I am sick and tired of hearing about, it is this one right here. Now, I really don't care if someone likes this win or not. I just don't think that it is so special that it shouldn't receive any criticism. I don't care if Shane handled every room fine, he had a very lucky temple guard layout and he made a mistake that we always criticize other players for doing. I mean how many times have we criticized a team for taking a Mine Shaft elevator? Two-Cornered Hat, Gordian Knot, Ivory Elephant, and Annie Oakley. So what makes him above them? Because he lucked out and won? I doubt he would've won in those layouts.

I even like the Trojan Horseshoe better than Ahmed Baba.

Yeah, and good luck convincing all the fanboys that Shane was nothing special. I swear, I hate this run more and more and more and more each day. I almost rank it the same level as Silk Ladder, Geronimo, hell I almost prefer SILVER FUCKING HORSESHOE over this one. I might actually change my vote to something lower. I despise this run, and all the overhype made me hate it even more. I am sick and tired of hearing about what a "groundbreaking," "breathtaking" run this is. You want hard layout where someone won? Try Lost Hornpipe and Apanuugpak. But this win? It's completely forgettable, uneventful, and Shane was completely slow and unimpressive. This win can die in a fire for all I care. Boy, and I thought Shaka Zulu was overhyped. :roll: I guess what some people call skill is what I call "luck." :roll:
