Looks like TAR may have been one of the first to use the OGN e-stadium last June/July 2016.  Turns out it opened early May 2016 as per this Korea Times story

Quote
The Seoul Metropolitan City Government and the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism have invested 4.3 billion won ($3.8 million) for the world's first competitive video gaming competitions-only complex, which occupies six floors of the S-Plex Center in Sangam, western Seoul. After going through seven years of construction, the complex has held test operations over the last two weeks.

The Seoul OGN e-Stadium will be operated by local entertainment and media conglomerate CJ E&M's video gaming cable channel OGN. Comprised of main and auxiliary floors, the complex has a seating capacity of 1,000.

Wasn't TAR16's virtual reality Roadblock in the finale a computer game too? ???

Regarding episode preview:
And in the promo at the flashy clips before the CBS production credits, there were 3 distinct scenes I noticed. First was a group of female singers or dancers on an outdoor makeshift stage with a violet and paisley-toned "sunray" cutout backdrop facing against a major street with average-sized skyscrapers. Second one is an excited reaction from Scott & Brooke side by side, possibly at the final Pit Stop... (can someone please recheck if they dare to do so?). And the third one was Matt & Redmond exiting a high-speed railcar at a station (reference TAR17's use of Seoul's system).

That, and some other computerised tasks we have seen on TAR (like the Ship detour in leg 7 of TAR27 in The Netherlands) were a spin or artificial reality and simulations, but they weren't exactly the computer games I can actually play myself on my own PC.
I see them as different things and am therefore happy for the upcoming Korea leg. :P

Oh yeah, those job simulation tasks + TAR19 Atlanta's flight school Roadblock

Just to clarify, what is the objective of the upcoming video game Roadblock? (Assuming it's a Roadblock because I noticed one racer is behind the gaming booth while the other is in the audience.) Just defeat the opponent or survive a round in a given amount of time?

Most likely beat the opponent, as London was seen losing (barely) when the K.O. appeared on the computer screen as everyone in the audience got frustrated.

In the preview you can see LoLo standing in a room with what looks like Banchan. (Korean sidedishes) so there could possibly be a Korean food task too. Maybe it's a double Roadblock & Detour leg. With food/dance detour and the Video games rb and Stacking. Also the pitstop seems to be in a public open place, possibly the Cheonggyecheon.

It seems that this leg looks to be a double roadblock leg with the cup stacking as the 1st task and Street Fighter V being the 2nd task.  Street Fighter V came out a few months before the leg took place.  If you guys want to ask something about video games, I'm the guy.

Some caps went by machine-gun style; these are the few I could save:
1. A sculpture and dancers at Gangnam metro station.
2. Celebrating next to a metro entrance (the glass thing on the left; if the garden can be matched, we'll have the location)
3. Hongik University metro station (if they wanted to walk to the e-sports arena, Digital Media City station would have been a better choice)
4. Banchan
5. Distraught

I definitely saw that and a shot of Redmond at what is probably the pit stop.

They were also nice enough to spoil who does what:
Stackers: Redmond, Logan, Brooke, Joey
SFV Players: Matt, London, Scott, Tara

I *was* going to attempt to guess relative positions based on empty game chairs but as it turns out that's hard to do without caps  :angel
I WILL say there's definitely a shot of Logan, Brooke, and Joey watching their partners and a separate shot of Redmond and a sad looking Joey looking at their partners at the same spot (with Redmond likely in Brooke's seat).

From the article:
Quote
I can't imagine the challenge requiring that Poongko be defeated a match, or even a round as I think it is unlikely that anyone without exceptional knowledge of the game would stand a chance against him.
It's an interesting point. I'm not a gamer, so let me ask...can Street Fighter matches be handicapped? During the Shanghai table tennis task, the opponents were made to use clipboards, frying pans, etc. The only alternative to handicapping I see is that the opponents (the professionals) were told to spar for a few rounds then lay down and play dead.

Time to fire up the "wayback machine" again, to see what we all missed!

Turns out I hinted at a possible "gaming" theme way back in March 29th, when spoiling the PRE-SEASON PROMOS.
Took eleven episodes before anyone chimed it.   :groan:

Because the preview showed Brooke & Scott welcoming & hugging London & Logan, presumably at the Pit Stop, and we predict that Brooke and Scott win the Leg due to the Final Memory Challenge spoilers, can we expect LoLo to arrive 2nd?

Sunset in Seoul on June 30th, 2016 was 7:57 pm local time, the teams arrived in the city around 4:30 in the afternoon. The drive from Incheon Airport to Seoul is 1 or 1 1/2 hour by taxi.

Could be; the only two reasons I can think of for hugs and hi-fives are a pit stop or a good time for an early release the next morning. I double-checked the camera angles and it's definitely Gangnam station/M square. Two distinctive  buildings are in the background (see here).

Tbh, while i'm bitching and being sceptimistic about stacking cups and. Vid game (the vid games is cool concept actually but...)  i'm still excited about the penultimate leg...

And i wanna see K-pop be done at night, it will be cool to see... If this happen i'm gonna freak out... ( but it should best in ARI )

And cooking Korean cuisine it's actually cool since we rarely have literally cooking task actually last t one was cooking fish back in Colombia S28 )

Sunset in Seoul on June 30th, 2016 was 7:57 pm local time, the teams arrived in the city around 4:30 in the afternoon. The drive from Incheon Airport to Seoul is 1 or 1 1/2 hour by taxi.

OK, time for all our members hoping for a KPOP challenge to step up and do some detective work.  Since I'm not able to view the preview video directly, can't tell if the outdoor singers/dancers at Gangnam station are actual KPOP idols or just extras.  If there is a song playing, can anyone identify it, so we can see if the singers are real KPOP idols hired for the show.  Might even get lucky and match the pix with some actual stars. Or maybe not.  Worth a try.   }:>

The jingle in the promo sounds like a KPOP song and ends with "It's Amazing Race". The song is definitely something produced for the leg.

Looks like Brooke & Scott and LoLo are the frontrunners for this leg. And Mom&Dad and TheBoys will battle it out not to be in last. I will guess that the video game RB is the task prior to pitstop and Tara/Joey were last in it (picture of Joey frustrated) but managed to survive due to taxi problems of Matt/Redmond.

Apparently this is the gist of the SF task. This was added to the wiki page, with a Polygon (gaming site) article as source.

In the leg's second Roadblock, the selected teammate will be coached to play the video game Street Fighter V. They they will have to face a professional eSport player, including Seon-woo “Infiltration” Lee and Lee Chung "Poongko" Gon, in the game and attempt to beat them in ten rounds. If the teammate fails to do so, the professional player then plays one-handed for another ten rounds, and then finally plays blindfolded until the racer wins.

Not sure if this is us, but I've been asking around Seoul about Amazing Race-like filming activity about a month after they passed through.

There were a couple of residents in the Bukchon neighbourhood that pointed me to a homestay hanok called Hanulchae Guesthouse. Possible location for this leg, maybe the kimchi task?

Really interesting to see that this is most definitely a night penultimate leg!  :conf:

The competition also seems close - Brooke & Scott and Tara & Joey arrive at the cups AND the game together (with LoLo catching up to them at the game!).

Cannot wait to see this leg.

A slight detail I noticed:



There is a cluebox behind Phil. Teams get their next clues if they complete this Roadblock from there?

Dang 7.0 seconds... It will be harsh for all contestants...

While i was read the record of the fastest stacking up last time, it was approximately 4.6 seconds... (idk if the record wwas changed but so far i know (and i play) was that)

And based on the preview, i think they will do a cycle configuration (but it may be 3-6-3, cmiiw)

Watching the Insider vids and from the clip of Brooke & Scott after the cup stacking RB there's a nice shot of the additional information for a change.



  • "Use a pre-paid marked taxi waiting outside of the gym to [get to the Mugyewon?].
    You should keep your taxi."
  • "The Mugyewon Arts & Cultural Center's address is [Korean script], Seoul, South Korea.

I'm unsure if this was because the cultural center is hard to find or if production wanted to reduce the amount of variables in play for this leg but in either case it's interesting.

I remember posting the picture from the Bs. As. Bus Terminal back in TAR20 and how teams picked cabs waiting in a different section from the rest of the passengers and all of them belonged to the same taxi company; so it wouldn't be the first time this kind of instructions are given.
