I gave this run a 5.

It's pretty underwhelming.

I gave Icarus a 4. I can't stand this temple run at all, and I dislike it more than Lost Lariat! Jason was such a moron and he deserved to lose after that awful performance. The layout was easy, but he kept on backtracking and running all over the place. And even after grabbing the artifact with over 50 seconds left, he still runs out of time right behind freakin Olmec! -___- This is not an exciting loss and it was painful to watch. Runs like Good-Luck Watch are more exciting because those players actually put up an effort despite coming up short. I hated this run since day one, and I hate it now too. :afro:

I gave it a 5. Too frustrating and painful to watch. I used to like it when I first watched it, but now I just plain hate it. Could've been an easy solo victory, but Jason blew it, big time. You could totally tell April looked PISSED after time was called. She looked like she was gonna cry. :roll:

I gave Imperial Wizard a 6. It was a boring and uneventful temple run like half of the Season 3 losses, but the Green Monkeys did make it far with a tough layout. Although this loss was entirely on Jared though. He hesitated too much in some rooms and had no reason to go into the Dark Forest. But I have to give credit to Katie for her amazing speed as the second runner. NOW that is how you use your time in the temple as a second runner. Too bad she didn't go in first, they would've reached the artifact at least. Maybe Jared should've paid more attention to the temple run rather than the Silver Snakes girl.  :afro:

It was the Purple Parrot girl, NOT Silver Snakes. And she lost at the steps. :afro:

And I gave it a 5. Nothing special about this run. This team would've been in much better shape if Katie went first instead.

If Katie went in first, she would've moved faster AND not detoured into the Dark Forest. She would've been removed from the Quicksand Bog and Jared would simply have to follow her path and had no excuse to detour into the Dark Forest. They should've reached the artifact at least too. Would they have won though? It was a really tough layout.

I don't think they would've won, no.

Katie gives this run some credibility. If not for her performance, I would give this about a 3. But I gave it a 5.

This was just one of those runs where the opposite player should've gone first. In this case, it's Katie. She was just an amazing second runner. Imagine how much time she would've left Jared if she had gone in first instead.

The question is, would Jared have been able to do anything with that time.

Assuming Katie would've left him with about 1:20 left on the clock? Maybe. But knowing Jared, he probably would've either made as far as the Quicksand Bog, or would've just barely reached the artifact in time. Hard to say really. =/

Jared was actually pretty quick himself. And with a direct path open all the way to the Quicksand Bog, there should be no excuse for him to make any detours. I think they would've reached the Mystical Spellbook, but I don't see them winning unfortunately. Imperial Wizard finishes with a 5.40.  ;)
