I've bolded the important bits of this blog post to save you my ramblings. Wooo that's this series over and done with. I'm glad that Nantin won she definitely deserves it. The final last stand was definitely exciting. I liked how they used similar things to what you would find in a playground because that's exactly what I used to do when I was a kid (pretend those kinds of assault courses were the way of the warrior). I think the rankings for the warriors on the warrior list page are more accurate now compared to how they actually performed but I'm still not 100% happy with how I calculated it. Basically it compared the warrior against a hypothetical perfect warrior and you end up with things where if they do cursed chasm they're at a big …Read more >
The was a dramatic end to the stag heat. Cersage obviously deserves it since she was quickest even with the disadvantage of starting last. I'm kind of hoping Nantin wins the final but we'll have to wait and see.
I'll start gathering and cropping screenshots on fridayRead more >
or it would be woo if I didn't have exams in January....
I'm visiting friends over the weekend so the Monday updates might not come until Tuesday.
On the other hand going home for Christmas means I can get my Linux OS online and that means that not only can I quickly take screenshots but I can also hopefully rescue some of the operation ouch screenshots I took and then windows messed with.
Christmas is going to be busy because I need to study for exams and I also entered a game dev competition and i need to work on that. Basically after the series is done I'm taking a break from the wiki until February otherwise it will become a distractionRead more >
Woo! Got it all done quicker than usual.
Well done to Janra for making it through. If the next winner is a yellow then everyone would have originally had a different colour.
I kept the previous blog post short since I had some stuff to say but i was going to save it until the end of the week (which I thought was today but yeah.. today's thursday) so this one will be short too
The wildcats seemed to have way more mental challenges than the other teams. I like them more tbh but that might just be me. On the other hand, a good variety keeps everyone happy.
The final qualifier heat starts tomorrow Exciting. This heat seemed to go by quicker than the others.
Wait I remember I did have something to say. Ranking the warriors in the new series how it c…

Its taking me longer and longer to finish off for the day but y sleeping schedule's wrapped back 'round to being normal again so today's updates should be closer to when the episode is actually aired.
Having the rules of challenges change is a bit annoying since it makes it harder to compare warriors but I'm just going to chalk that up to balancing the challenges properly so it should stop happening soon
I've got a python test in like an hour so I should probably get ready for that...Read more >
WILDCATS! okay that's the obvious joke out of the way.
I'm not sure I'm actually liking the tables now it's coming to testing them out. I feel like there's some information missing now. I think I'll keep them as quick summaries at the top of the challenges section but keep the more wordy versions I've been doing so far.
The new pool plunge rules are downright unfair imo. For context the only warrior who would've beaten it under these rules is Ledag. It's basically become gain three or lose one and so the game loses some subtlety, it basically the same problem I have with demon causeway. For all of the challenges I think it would be better if you get to keep any rings you collect even if you lose but losing still costs a ring. It still gives …Read more >
Lost count of the days.... don't develop sleep problems kids! It did snow here but lectures were still on so all that means is it's been colder than usual.
Nantin is the winner of the wolf heat becuase of her strong performance today. The ring counts for today felt really high with a potential of 16 rings which could be collected. That's probably more than the other two days combined. Dead Man's gorge feels kind of unfair becuase chances are you'll either get five rings or lose a ring.. Maybe it would be better if the first one back got two rings to give the person in last place a chance to gain something by being cleaver. Although that wouldn't be fair on whoever's in second place who still gets nothing. Maybe just have it so you keep the …Read more >
No new episode today... hopefully I've fixed my sleeping schedule enough that i won't sleep through everything next week. It's -1°C and raining so even if it does snow later it won't settle *sigh* (the temperatures still dropping though)
I've been messing around with making some graphs of how each warrior does. Here's all the Bears on one graph so it's a little cluttered [Imgur link] it shows some interesting stuff like every singe warrior would have to have been doing absolutely abysmally for anyone to be eliminated due to lack of treasure rings since you could only lose 5 by the end of day 2 and you'd need to have 5 or less to be eliminated from lack of rings on day 3. I wonder what would happen if there was a draw in the number of rings …Read more >
I've become fully nocturnal so I think its saturday now lol
For a day called The Demons are Everywhere there were surprisingly few demons, would've made more sense to swap around day 1 and 2's challenges if they were going to subtitle the day that.
Cursed chasm adding a second round felt unfair imo. In the first round they split it up so the 2 shorted and 2 tallest went head to head but by adding in a second round it basically just gives the loser of the tall round extra rings. Also I think the warrior on the right wire (the wire furthest away from the camera) has an advantage due to gaining extra momentum at the start. (as a third side note I have the same sort of harness as the ones the outdoor centre use which is kinda neat).
Bad luck to C…Read more >
Today was deffinately started out more exciting than the previous heat. That sequence with the demons chasing down the warriors was a bit too overdramatic imo, made me laugh. I've decided it makes more sense to divide this series up into heats rather than weeks. The changes make more sense now I think about it. Dragon's eye dragged on massively but with only 4 days per team the pacing stays good.
Turns out I didn't fix the warrior infoboxes so I'm going to go and learn some css and see if I can fix it. It might snow here soon.Read more >
So our first finalist is declared. It was close at the end and if Ledag had got the door open quicker he would be in the final now but that's just how things are.
Personally I'm starting to dislike using the new rings as a ring/life combo. Some tasks you can't lose rings (which makes sense) but whether you do or not seems arbitrary. I thought the rings were used to return a warrior after being captured by a demon (and when you are captured you lose the rings you hold) but loom labyrinth disproved that by having a demon capture a warrior without taking any of their rings at all... Losing a life when you lost a challenge was clearer even if it didn't always make sense.
Looks like the edits I made to the warrior infoboxes did actually work but …Read more >
Thought I might as well start writing blog posts about this whole wiki editing process.
After adding in today's info I made a basic series infobox to put on series pages and then spent a few hours trying to find a way to get the warrior infoboxes to dynamically change colour. Obviously it hasn't worked but I'm not sure why since I've got no experience with css or whatever language the infobox editor uses. I'm just happy I've not broken them in the process
There are some really sweet articles on here which were obviously written by young fans long ago like Nosson's page, makes me smile to read.
Tomorrow I probably won't do much beyond adding what's needed since I have stuff to do in the evening. Editing wikis always entirely absorb me though s…Read more >
Just to let you know, I'm either still having half... maybe one third of an eye on this wiki just in case or I'm dead. In real life dead, I mean.
Send me a message and I'll get back to you some time later.
I may or may not randomly pop up in places.
