Champion Of Champions

How might you change Knightmare if a new series were to be made?

Champion Of Champions

Post by Naitch » Thu Oct 12, 2006 11:04 am

Kind of inspred by the All Star Teams thread, (Which I will get round to posting on!), I thought what if there were to be a Champion Of Champions series, where all the winning teams from each series battle to be the best team.

If there aren't enough winning teams to make a series, a couple of teams that got the closest without actually winning could be on 'standby'

what do you think?

Which team do you think would win?

Toughie for this one!!

A Trial of Champions type Series would be quality, especially with the age they are now it could be really tough :o

Not sure who would win, will have to watch all the Knightmares again and assess (however you spell it!) their performances based on who had more difficult quests etc.

How would the series be?

Would it be a knew series, or would it be an amalgamation of the previous series?

The early teams would probably be in their mid to late 30s by now.

But say this happened in about 1996, would that be more realistic.

Its a shame a series like this never happened, but it would have been great.

It would be good to include all the classic rooms, but add some knew ones too!

Who would get your vote?

I reckon you would need new, harder riddles and puzzles (for causeways etc.) but quick action rooms should be similar (Corridor of Blades, Bomb Room) and be much less forgiving! Rest of rooms could be same as older series but with new characters and plots basically should work ;D

The question is Lord Fear or Mogdred? Eye Shield or No Eye Shield? Spyglasses or No-Spyglasses?

I would say there should be 10 teams, all the winners and the best from series 1 and 3 where there were no winners in those series so they would ahve been the champion of that series

I'm not really convinced that a "Champion Of Champions" contest would work in Knightmare, because the teams weren't competing against each other. But if we're going to make it a contest, then let's make it 16 teams, which would allow a one-on-one knockout format.

OBVIOUSLY the eight winning teams, but aside from those:

Yes, Leo & Martin from series 3, and Richard from series 1, as already mentioned, alongside:

Alistair and Giles from series 4
Sofia and Chris from series 6

And any one of the following:

Simon or Alex from series 7
Daniel from series 8
Helen from series 4

Definitely Daniel from series 8, as his quest was the longest in terms of time from that series, and they damn near made it.

It'd be good to see Helen from series 4, as she was clearly in a final encounter when she died.
