The Quest Championship!

Recommended Posts

This was inspired by the Hero Championship, which I wanted to emulate to see what were people's favorite quests.

SO, everyone who wishes to participate will vote on their top 10 favorite quests, out of all the ones available. Favorite can mean, best designed, most thematic, most fun, great difficulty level, whatever criteria you wish. The quests with the most votes will make it to the first round of voting where 2 quests will be directly paired up, and everyone votes on 1 or the other. Eventually we will make it to our top 3 where you will vote for 1st 2nd and 3rd place. If you vote for the Nightmare version of a quest I will just count it as if for the regular one. 

 

The 3rd round of voting is up! 1-10-15

 

1. Wastes of Eriador vs. Flight to the Ford

2. Trouble in Tharbad vs. Seventh Level

3. Fog on the Barrow Downs vs. Massing at Osgiliath

4. Helms Deep vs. Encounter at Amon Dun

5. Foundations of Stone vs. Stewards Fear

6. Three Trials vs. Siege of Cair Andros

7. Journey in the Dark vs. Battle of 5 Armies

8. Druaden Forest vs. Journey Down the Anduin

 

 

The 2nd round of voting is up! Just copy and paste, and choose your favorite in these 16 matchups!

 

1.  Across Ettenmoors vs. Wastes of Eriador

2. Trouble in Tharbad vs. Breaking of Fellowship

3. Intruders in Chetwood vs. Fog on the Barrow Downs

The Saga quests are very popular, for good reason. The Battle of carn Dum was very polarizing I believe, but for people who enjoy the most difficult quests or who play NM exclusively I think it revived this cycle for them, where the quests were overall too easy.

- Massing at Osgiliath

- Siege of Cair Andros

- The Steward's Fear

- The Battle for Lake-Town

- Flight from Moria

- The Battle of Five Armies

- Escape from Dol Guldur

- The Redhorn Gate

- The Lonely Mountain

- Blood of Gondor

These are some of my favorites from the overall top 10 so far.

 * Foundations of Stone (10 votes at the moment?): still such a fun quest! With the current card pool, the Nightmare version can still be challenging but in a good way.

 * Helm's Deep (tied at 8 votes with Battle of Five Armies?): I guess that LOTR players in general really like big battles. So do I!

 * Seventh Level, The Steward's Fear, Massing at Osgiliath: Not as challenging as they used to be but still so much fun! Who does not love them?!

 

Still have to think about the other half of my own top 10... :unsure:

Yeah I'm a bit surprised at the popularity of the Saga and POD quests. Its interesting to see a lot of people seem to like the Dwarrowdelf cycle a lot. My least favorite cycle in terms of quests is Mirkwood, followed by Angmar Awakened. Maybe because they are still new and haven't really sunk in yet, but so far the new cycle doesn't seem to be too popular.

Have to say, I kind of wish the Quest Championship could just run like the Hero and Unique Ally Championships, with a full knockout bracket. I find it interesting going through a series of matchups, and tat tends to be easier than just picking a top 10 out of thin air, where I feel like there are more quests which deserve recognition but I've run out of spaces.

 

Massing at Osgiliath

Foundations of Stone

Siege of Cair Andros

The Steward's Fear

Assault on Osgiliath

The Three Trials

Intruders in Chetwood

The Weather Hills

Journey in the Dark

Helm's Deep

 

(Honourable mentions to Into Ithilien, The Antlered Crown, and Fog on the Barrow Downs. Also some of the recent quests from Angmar Awakened I enjoyed a lot but I haven't played them enough times to really feel I can confidently place them in my top ten)

Fear not!  This is just a preliminary round that sets up the knockout bracket.
