Awesome that you are invited to 32! Yeahhhh, TV producers in the US LOVE injuries. It f***ing sucks that ANW doesn't give a s*** about the fans, ratings would go way way up even more than they already are if they decided not to f***ing have these stupid inspirational fluff pieces.
Time for my thoughts on each of the obstacles along with what you and Will are talking about:
Ideally I want every obstacle gone but knowing H&S they will probably want the "safe" obstacles back. Roller Hill- I like it a lot, it's just sort of slow lol. Agreed with Will though, it's not steps! KEEP Log Grip- It's old and nobody fails it anymore. I'd get rid of it. DESTROY Music Box- I like it but it's sort of awkward and people were kinda cheating by running across the top. MODIFY Jump Hang Kai- I want to see a new trampoline obstacle that doesn't involve a net or a spider walk. DESTROY Tackle- Love it in the 1st Stage. It's unconventional and it's a breath of fresh air because the past few 1st stages have been a bit too formulaic. KEEP Warped Wall- It needs to die, but H&S wanted it back because it's safe. I'd say modify it in some form, like modifying the curve or something (I WOULD LOVE THE TRAVELLATOR FROM GLADIATORS). MODIFY Tarzan Rope- I like it sort of but the Swing Mast could work perfectly here. MAYBE DESTROY Lumberjack Climb- I LOVE IT SO MUCH BETTER THAN THE ROPE LADDER. KEEP
Cross Slider- It sucks and the setup screwed Jin over. Honestly ANW's first 2nd stage obstacle (Rope Jungle, the one that wasn't modified to screw Ryo and Kanno lol) is much better. DESTROY Salmon Ladder Up/Down- I like it but I'd like the rungs on the first ladder to be on the other side so you turn around and transition sort of like the DSL. All this being said, I don't think that there should be a Salmon Ladder in this renewal. DESTROY Spider Walk + Spider Drop- Honestly not sure about this one. I'd say change how the track is lol. MODIFY Backstream- .....DESTROY Wall Lift- It's time to put it down. There needs to be something else here... maybe a balance thing? idk lol. DESTROY
Drum Hopper- I like it. KEEP Iron Paddler- Honestly I don't want it anymore. People blaze through it for the most part but I'm just bored of it. DESTROY Sidewinder- Make the gaps farther? MODIFY Crazy Cliffhanger- It's time for the CH to die. I WOULD LOVE A PEG BOARD HERE. DESTROY Vertical Limit Kai- I'd love for this to be in the 4th obstacle slot. Pretty much making this the new Cliffhanger of sorts. KEEP Pipe Slider- It's easier than in 28-29 imo. MODIFY or DESTROY
Final Stage- I'd just get rid of the Spider Climb and keep the G-Rope.

Sorry I'm still laughing over the double all star fail and you called one an idiot (SHINGO! XD) and the other arrogant/cocky (Takeda! XD). I've gotten used to this epic fail so I'm laughing. It's all in good fun. Also grats on being invited to SASUKE 32! Dang I wanna go this time! XD
Just a quick update, the Final Stage Podcast has a new logo and I updated the first four episodes with new thumbnails! All future videos will have the new logo in them instead of the placeholder image I've been using.
Learning how these things work so don't mind me.. If anyone is inclined to rate/review the podcast I found a nice write up for those unsure how to do it. I'm totally new to ianything so I wasn't sure what the process was. We update once a month and the latest is already recorded. I expect it will be published by Friday on YouTube. As soon as get information on when it hits iTunes I'll let you know as well.
