Task might be easier since at least in some cases it appears he took only clothes and not corpses.
Either way, that's a lot of work basically for nothing other than to show he's the best for five seconds.
I have a sneaky feeling that this entire contest was planned to be a disaster.
I don't mean that Ardon planned on this exact result, but I suspect he thought this is a win win situation, something along the lines of "either I manage to finish off the other team, or prove that I'm a better leader".
