First, select ONE of the following choices, then select any amount from the Sub-choices that complement your playing style.

THE BUTCHER
You'll waste half your ammo on one zombie just to watch the guts fly. The amount of flesh you have splattered over the wall would be enough to feed India for a week. The BFG is your favorite weapon simply for its ability to gib zombies no matter what. You also secretly wonder why the ammo in the zombie's hand doesn't melt when he explodes. If there's a slaughter map in sight, it's yours and only yours.


THE MANIPULATOR
You can make any monster believe he's surrounded by foes. Your ability to send an entire army into disarray and have them waste their own ammo is important, and you'll be left with loads of the stuff. Your gift is also an uncontrollable curse, as you can spend hours just to lead one enemy into others. You've even somehow managed to send pinkies against each other and a cacodemon to even attack itself.


THE GUERRILLA
You lead monsters to their deaths, but unlike the Manipulator, you're the one who attacks. You can wait behind a corner for days, and your foe will never know what hit him. In multiplayer, everyone believes you kill them unfairly because of your strategy. Your favorite weapon is likely the shotgun, because you can't really fire straight in the panic you cause.


~SUB CHOICES~


Editor
You'll spend hours messing with the controls just to see what suits you perfectly. You could probably Doom with your tongue, your controls are so efficient.

Calculating
You're very versatile, because you can strategize in less than a second. You have the keen ability to use the land to your advantage.

Loner
Multiplayer is a strange concept to you. You believe you are "the lone marine", not "the lone marine with three of his friends".

Depressed
You make the game way harder than it really is by setting ludicrous boundaries on yourself, which could possibly involve using nothing but a pistol the whole game.

Unsatisfied
You will use gameplay mods all the time, and when you get bored you'll intentionally mix mods just to see the glitches. You can't really call the game you play "Doom" anymore, it's so different.

Noob
You asked everywhere to see who would give you a copy of Doom 2. When you finally did pirate it, you failed miserably and blamed it on everyone else. You've likely had your thread sent to post hell. Get off the forums, you idiot.
----------------------------------------------------------

Not on the list? Make your own class or sub-class! I'd like to see more creative ideas.

I'm a big fan of bum rushing and trying to deal with hordes of enemies coming after me as I race through the map. If it's a particularly pretty map with lots of explorable areas, I'll slow things down a bit, but in most every case it's very exciting to run and gun, then try to keep my ass alive while the monsters close in on me. So I think I'll call my category "The Bum Rusher" or maybe "The Run and Gunner."

I stalk the monsters in the trees for days, make strange noises to freak them out, and finally destroy them with plasma when they least expect it and collect their skulls as trophies!

Those main three don't cover it.

I'm a pretty impatient player, preferring to shoot first -- or at most after a few seconds of surveying the playfield if I have the time before my trigger finger gets itchy. I prefer one-hitters (Shotguns, Rocket Launcher, BFG, Berzerk) over anything else because remaining 'attached' to an enemy for any amount of time seems like a waste of time.

I don't kill everything, I just kill anything in my path or making my path difficult (such as 'turret' enemies). I don't like to waste ammo, BFGs are for Cybers, Spiders and to quickly dispatch troublesome Archies. SSG for single enemies, RL for groups. Generally. If somebody's a threat from a mile away, I will consider some chaingun-pecking before business as usual.

But there is a smidgeon of calculating-loner-editor about me, I guess.

How about adding "the coward"? When I'm not recording an LP I tend to play very carefully, slowly, peeking around corners and running back at the first sign of danger. But if a trap or a tricky situation catches me off guard completely, I panic and probably die. :<

The shovel. A doom map is a large slab of dirt and I just repeatedly slam myself into it until I get through.

I punch cybs in the butt and fire rockets directly under my feet. My best fit is Depressed (43%) Gorilla (55%) with minor in Manipulator (38%) Reditor (30%). I will take this test a few years later to see how my life values have changed.

Depressed and Unsatisfied usually, sometimes calculating when I really know what a map is.

My custom choice would be the KAMIKAZE since I blow myself up a lot!

I'm a calculating, lonely guerrilla, going by those definitions. I play Doom solo pretty much exclusively and work best when there's a challenge set out in front of me to systematically destroy. Luring zombies and imps into an unsuspecting berserker punch from just around a corner when playing Tyson or on low ammo is definitely a strategy I enjoy, as is tear-arsing around open spaces getting the lay of the land and identifying key targets for swift annihilation before digging into the meat of the battle (which is usually busy beating itself up for me at this point).

Stick in "Rubberneck" as a custom sub choice for constant use of mouselook too. Shooting rockets into the floor near enemies always feels better than missing entirely.

You are missing a main class:

THE BERSERKER
You are the one who would rush head long into battle rather then let them come to you. While good things come to those who wait, you find that impatience does you no wrong. You live for the thrill of action, and will go out of your way to find it, even if it leads to potential suicide.

Being said I fit that and a Loner sub type.

Daredevil - because I hate hiding around corners unless I have to, it's more fun to weave in and out of monsters and dodge fireballs as you thin out the crowd while being smart about what weapon you're using and why

calculating and loner

Explorer - because big levels and few monsters don't bother me as long as the scenery / puzzles are engaging, and I love doing shit I shouldn't do like strafejumping to places the author clearly never expected me to get to. If authors use terrain / geometry / linedef triggers to challenge, then I will engage them on that playing field. (Sometimes it's still boring tho)

Pretty much this. I'm a Coward-Explorer. But sometimes other categories could be appropriate, depending on my mood.

Ill run and gun most of the time but when I am in low health situations I stick to guerrilla style until I find more health and then the cycle repeats.

Merry-go-round:

If outnumbered by impossible numbers of foes or too dangerous situations -like being chased by a mob of revenants in a small space, just keep running circles around them: they'll eventually infight or break up enough so that you can take flank shots at them.

I would be:
THE BLAZE
You search for and pick up loads of item, but use them at a minimal. You Strafe around your foes, avoiding every attack, and avoiding single kills by instead grouping up enemies and using your might against them.
SPEED TO THE EXIT!

I'm a sort of a "Butcher Lite". I'm a shoot-on-sight, mow-em-down guy, but I still try to be strategic with my weapon choice i.e. Chaingun sniping, Shotgun for small, weak groups, SSG for big groups or strong demons, etc.

Guerrilla loner. I don't play multiplayer much, and I like to open doors, get the monsters going, then wait behind the door for them to come to me one at a time.

How would you categorize a guy who knows what he's doing, but still ends up getting killed in really dumb ways.
