I'm still confused over the whole All Stars thing. I thought they were all retiring and they made a big deal about one of the previous competitions being their final one ever, but they're still there? emoticon



Yeah they kinda realised people still only watch for the all stars and were like "Just kidding lol, naganoneverleaveusplz"

Is challenge gonna buy the newer competitions? I know America doesn't air it anymore so it's down to challenge but if they don't you should just watch them.

I doubt Challenge will buy them. They're definitely not until next year at the earliest anyway. But if they do get them it will mean reversioning them themselves. And we know what a great job they did with Rebooted.

Re: 30 Tournaments! Yay!


Watched the whole thing last weekend. Hopefully, I've coloured the text right to 'spoiler tag' this Tropes style, in the unlikely event this tournament ever gets
Jim-ified.

* mr. tom is right about Stage 1, I just couldn't put my finger on what seemed 'off' about it. That's it, it looks too much like the early days compared to the rest of the course, with the obstacles almost arranged in a straight line again rather than the 18-27 days of the course gradually snaking around the grounds.

* I liked what I call the 'Super' Jump Hang, with two nets allowing for different styles to emerge, though I was shocked and gutted for Bunpei, as he showed his rustiness by mistiming his jump and messing up his patented 'jump off the frame of the trampoline' technique, in similar fashion to how Yuko Mizuno lost on the Hop Rocket in Kuno 7 - overstepping and jumping off the padding, killing the jump. Would have loved to see Bunpei tackle Stage 2 in his one-off return. I'll miss ya, buddy.

* 'Team Katsumi'... really? emoticon

* Also, what the hell is with Takeda's haircut? emoticon

* Nagano clearing for the first time in the Rising era gets he thumbs up from me, of course, and I'm sure it would for Jim, also. Other returnees pleasing me include Kinnikun Nakayama and also Shunsuke Nagasaki. I didn't recognize him at first, and hearing the announcer call out his name in Stage 2 caught me by surprise. He's 27 now, that makes me feel bloody old. lol.

* 26 going through to Stage 2 blew me away. I haven't seen all the Rising days, so I don't know if such a large number of clears is now common or not.

* That bleeping Backstream is still there, unfortunately. Hadn't seen Yuuji attack it before, and was surprised to see him struggle with it. Does he normally have trouble with that? Shingo hasn't passed it the times I've seen him do it, either. Did his shoulder give out again, there? Also, retractable rungs on the Salmon Ladder... WTF?! What twisted mind thought that up? emoticon Seeing several of the old guard, such as Nagano and Takeda either disqualified or straight eliminated on that obstacle because of that really pissed me off. Finally, like the fusion of the Spider Walk and the old Body Prop into the 'Spider Drop'. Keeps the old spider fresh for a little while longer.

*Hadn't seen Rising-spec Stage 3 at all before. The Rumbling Dice back as the first obstacle in these past 3 tournaments? Didn't see that one coming!
The Iron Paddler looks awkward as hell, the Drum Hopper deceptively difficult. But, Holy Cow, the Crazy Cliff Hanger, fusing old-school Cliff Hanger with the switchback of the Swap Salmon Ladder... just pure evil!

* As for the Final Stage, I was both disappointed to see the old walls back, and baffled to see them not retracting after 15 seconds. Desperate for another Champion, guys?

So, see you next year for 31, then?

Sorry. I still pop in from time to time!
Still recovering from breaking my spine last year so couldn't audition for this year, but I'm going to the gym more and my back is getting a lot better so will try for 32!

As for comp 31, some new obstacles etc, here's stage 1

That rolling log thing looks evil. And those tackle blocks are a strange thing to have in the first stage, but it works.

I like the retro-revival of the rising and falling logs, even though it's odd not seeing something Sextuple Steppy as the first obstacle.

The rolling log factory thing looks more difficult than it is, I think. The trick is going to be in the dismount.

I like the Tackle Machine thing. There aren'tt many obstacles in the first stage that require pure strength so this is a nice addition. Also it now gives the course some much needed length, now the Warped Wall feels properly near the end.

They need those rollers to begin the UK course. Seeing as they don't bother changing the obstacles at least it'd be a bit more interesting than the Sextuple Step week after week.
