"honestly just p disappointing as a season and the cast was meh. like when's the last time anyone brought up this awesome or memorable thing that happened in BotB?"

I feel like this has become a guilty pleasure thinking back on it. I'm more nostalgic about BotB on the whole because every round was twisty and interesting because of players rather then crazy twists or a few too many boring pre-merge boots.

Please don't make another one though.

WHATEVER!!!! A18 was a boss. Young Trunks had everyone in tangles. The alliances in Merge were freaking ridiculous and inconsistent.

My biggest complaint about DBZA was that I couldn't get some of the challenges to work the way I envisioned.

I in awe that people don't like the abridged series of Dragonball Z or just DBZ itself... yet running a Survivor anything theme is acceptable :(

i mean i get it. prior to starting to play anon games I thought Survivor themes were lame. i still think they're low energy. but i get the theme.

DBZA is mehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. ive seen some of the youtube videos, they were more cringe than anything to me

dbz would have been a better theme, the abridged series is kind of bad. i know, i tried to like it.

that yugioh challenge is a great example of why reviews need to be thorough.

but the game itself was really fun and super unpredictable. both pre and postmerge had plenty of epic blindsides, with the alliance structures changing every damn round. i'm grading more on that scale.
