Re: Survivor: Heroes vs. Healers vs. Hustlers

Yes I agree it really does become so much more about luck, if you do too many swaps. Too many idols.

Cirie, arguably one of the best social players in Survivor history went home without any votes because she DIDNT have an idol or advantage? How is that at all fair? Send them all back to camp, tribal over. Game continues as normal, drama from the votes aside... How they ever settled on that is beyond me.

A tribal swap killed Sandra last season. It’s killed many a great players. But super idols have the potential to do the literal worst and potentially this open jury nonsense. It removes SO LICH of the nuance of Survivor, and as a psychology-based jury confrontation at the end, that used to be important. I really can’t overstate enough how much I hate the new jury format.

Re: Survivor: Heroes vs. Healers vs. Hustlers

i like the idea of tribe swaps, as it keeps good players from becoming too complacent on their initial tribes (ie Sandra.)

I do NOT like the random weirdness of a super idol, nor do i like idols being spread about like dandelions. keep them more RARE, harder to find, something special - not a gimme for each episode. if you need to go a weird idol concept, do a dual idol - you can immunize yourself PLUS one other person.

Re: Survivor: Heroes vs. Healers vs. Hustlers

Or, they could issue fake idols (as opposed to the chintzy looking ones that the players make). The player finding it could give it to someone who would now think they are safe.

Or, instead of hiding idols, hide small stashes of food or other rations that only the player finding them can use.

Or, they could hide a fire burning kit (or something of that ilk) and in case of a tie, the player finding it could either use it or give it to another player to use.

I like the eliminate a vote/juror awards as well as the extra vote award.

They could hide the promise of a cash award, but it would only be redeemable if the player finding it makes to a certain point... or whatever parameters they want to put on it. Maybe they could make such an award partially transferable to help the player finding it make deals and navigate the landscape.

There're so many little things they could add that would enhance the game play without utterly destroying the integrity of the game. Instead we get exile island competitions and a bazillion immunity idols, which neither the purists of the game nor the drama seekers like me enjoy all that much.

Re: Survivor: Heroes vs. Healers vs. Hustlers

anybody else waiting to see how Cole telling literally everybody except Mike that Joe had the idol comes into play in this tribe swap? My guess is it blows up majorly because many people can’t keep secrets like that and then others will get nervous and fill in Joe about the previous blindside plan. Or not...but my guess is that they panic and do.

He needs a lot of advice from his older and mush wiser girlfriend. She was absolutely right about how he shouldn't have told everyone about it.

It's going to blow up.

Those HII's wield too much power. People crap themselves when they think others have them and often are too scared by them to do anything to out the idol or blindside its holder.

Re: Survivor: Heroes vs. Healers vs. Hustlers

Yeah, very few players take the risky way to idols. I think if I was out there and I knew who had it, I’d be good. It’s NOT knowing who has it that can totally tank your game. Then depending on who has it you can kinda guess if they’d ever use it for another, based on their personality, are they safe, shy, want it for themselves?

These youngins seem like mostly recruits. They are so short-sighted, it took Cole like what...1 day to flip on Joe and tell everybody? I don’t disagree with his reasonings, he’s got Joe pegged as the dubvious schemer that he is...but why tell EVERYONE? And so early before you know if you’ve even lost the immunity? I just...

I get the impression Patrick is a sociopath. That guy is dangerous in the real world.

Re: Survivor: Heroes vs. Healers vs. Hustlers

Said the exact same on another site. And someone else said they expect to see him shoot up a movie theater in 10 years.

If you rewatch the tribal, when he’s telling Jeff about his behavior, it’s like he’s reading a TelePrompTer, no emotion and every word is flatline. It isn’t normal, IMO. Lol but I play a doctor on the internet.
