    Mays shows great leadership skills overall, he knows who is a favourite in a subject and falls back on them. He is well rounded in his knowledge and uses logic to reach to his answer pretty well. Sheriff is clearly the wild horse in the team and will bring out the big guns when others struggle. Ofcourse, Zeng is the star of the show but the overal team dynamic is amazing and not to be dissected upon. Jackson does better in other rounds but has an approach similar to Mays. He is a natural second, this is a team game.

      @Simo Z That's all you can do. First come to us, kill our leaders and become our "rulers", loot and plunder us as colonies and slaves, take away a massive wealth worth trillions of $ value, completely destroy the societies here, and then one day just leave, go back and sit in your ivory towers sipping tea, and "pity" us. Shameless to the point now where you've deleted from your school textbooks all the major events of atrocities by the British on the colonies with blatant violation of Human Rights and complete disregard to morals and ethics.. You made us poor, and now instead of reparations, you don't even acknowledge the colonial wrongdoings, but you pity us?
      Remember, every poor child that is dying of starvation even today in Africa, Indian Subcontinent, ASEAN countries et. al, is a direct result of the massive loot and wealth depletion by the Brits and the East India Company. Countries are still reeling to come out of it even today after their wealth and natural resources have been destroyed or snatched away for centuries.

      @d4dagger a brown person, saying Jeez (jesus). See where I am pointing towards. Yes it has a lot of things to do with the race, colonial mindset and supremacy. Mays is as useless as the person calling an Indian call center to ask how to do a copy paste function in his computer. He keeps ignoring sheriff and zeng, looking first at Jackson. This Jackson is more useless.
      As an employer, who would you hire for competency - Mays or Zeng. Do you think Zeng won't be a good leader with so much of good critical thinking? Anybody can become a leader if given the captain's position. The point is, who is a better leader, what makes Mays a leader, his whiteness, ideally it should have been zeng. If zeng was the captain, he wouldn't even keep Mays there, no value add for his team. He'd have got someone more useful, someone who'd help him in the critical analysis, not just sit and order and put the workload on the oriental employees.
      Jackson btw is just useless.

    Because the comments will probably miss what happened on Twitter, Imperial's captain's teammates defended him on their own accounts. 1) they have earpieces to hear each other; 2) they were conferring with the team's designated specialists on topics - Zeng's best parts this match were mainly starter questions which are no-conferring; 3) they edited out the bit where Sheriff and Mays even joke with each other about panhandles. The team's working well together and they're having fun, otherwise they don't get scores like what they have been doing.

    • Angelica Licari

      @Flying Pen and Paper Zeng and Shariff seem to be specialists who feed Mays answers that only they know. In contrast, Jackson and Mays help each other work out answers from topics they have in common. Discussions naturally take longer than being fed a single-word answer,

    It must be disheartening to go against Imperial when you know Zeng will be good for at least about 60 points automatically. There were slightly more geography questions than normal tonight, so it was actually more like 100 (without even mentioning the non-geography questions he got). It really goes to show just how powerful a geography specialist can be in a format like this.

    I've watched UC for a long long time. I thought I'd seen it all. But Zeng and the first picture round just absolutely floored me. He really needs to change his surname to Fogg, acquire a loyal manservant and set off on a journey. He'll never go wrong 😎

      @Fran no he isn't. If you watched all the episodes you'd know he doesn't only consult with Jackson. He asks all of them, but it's easier to turn to Jackson's side, and also, there isn't much to discuss with Zheng. He knows the answer immediately! If Zheng knows the answer, he would've immediately said that, and I guess Mays knows that. There were many times where Mays turned to Zheng without any discussion, because as the leader, he knows who specialized in which area
