I think High/Low 5 has got the goods.

Forsaken Overlook needs to be considered for a Cacoward. Same goes for Mill 2, not because it's a massive, ambitious project but because it perfectly accomplishes what it set out to do. Note that I'm not following the wad scene that closely so if these levels are actually getting released in larger projects at some point then you can ignore this post.

Shotgun Frenzy is one of the best multiplayer WAD experiences i have ever had. http://wadaholic.wordpress.com/2012...-v1-4-released/

It's not just point and shoot, it also requires strategic thinking. Therefore I am nominating this for a Cacoward

I'll second this, I love playing this wad online. Being commander was an excellent experience, nothing could beat mowing down a hundred or two monsters with an ion cannon.

Well, I've tallied all the votes thus far and the results are:

Regular and Mordeth

-Pirate Doom(known as Corsair Doom at the moment) = 3[UNFINISHED]
-Doom: The Golden Souls = 2[UNFINISHED]
-BTSX = 1[UNFINISHED]
-ZDCMP2 = 2[UNFINISHED]
-Titty Milk = 1
-HedRox 2 = 1
-THE BIRD = 1(Joke submission, I'm guessing)
-SoulCrusher = 1
-Hadephobia = 5
-D2TWID = 2[UNFINISHED]
-TNT2 = 2[UNFINISHED]
-Project 115 = 1
-Nazis V2 = 1
-Danne's E1 = 1
-Certain Death = 1
-Stardate 20X6 = 4
-Monochrome Mapping Project = 2
-Interception = 2
-Doom 2 Minor Sprite Fixing Project = 1
-Temple of the Lizard Men 3 = 2
-Concerned = 3
-D2INO = 1[UNFINISHED]
-Hellbound = 2
-Favillesco E1 = 1
-Project MSX = 1
-High/Low 5 = 1
-Forsaken Overlook = 1
-Mill 2 = 1

Multiplayer

-Zandronum's All Out War 2 = 1
-Shotgun Frenzy = 2

Mappers

-Valkiriforce = 1
-Ribbiks = 2
-gggmork = 2

I couldn't be arsed finding the Mordeth ones, but then again it isn't that hard to pick. :-) So far Hadephobia leads with 5 votes, with Stardate 20X6 behind with 4 votes.

For best gameplay mod, I'd nominate Project MSX.

Seconding this.

Also, nominating Samsara for best multiplayer. (Edit: if that's allowed. While it is functional in singleplayer, and doesn't include any maps, it only truly shines in MP)

My definition of mapper of the year is someone who has contributed a lot to the community and continues to do so. Your unprovoked condescending posts as of recently are causing me to lose a lot of respect for you.


Do you know where you are? Almost all of the big-shots here don't know how to NOT be condescending (especially Memfis and Esselfortium, and I know I'm not the only one who's noticed :) ). Sry, just being honest. Their insecurities prevent them from communicating any other way.

Which is why I am taking a break from this community indefinitely, after the responses I got from my last post, which I made only with the best of intentions.

I will just go back to playing all of my favorite wads and cutting from my dooming experience the worst part of it, which is sadly the DoomWorld community (or more specifically, the ones that run it). It's really kind of sad because you guys consistently discourage newcomers from the Doom community and that's just bad for any community that you actually want to "grow." But, I will gladly keep playing Doom and posting anonymous reviews, doesn't bother me a bit.

Okay, I'm done ranting now, I will now quietly go away, so write your hate posts to this message and share them amongst yourselves, because I assure you, I will never see them.

Also, I'd like to throw in another vote for "Stardate 20X6" because it was well done, original, and I need to at least attempt to try and validate this, my final, post.

Just posting here to say that this is 100% true in my case. I'm a total loser IRL and I often get the urge to act as an asshole on the internet which makes me feel even worse, and even if I'm trying to be nice, most of the time it doesn't work because I seriously lack communication skills. I perfectly realize all that but I never had the will to try to change myself. btw somehow it feels good to see someone telling the truth about me. Honesty is always awesome, thanks.

You forgot to payback some honesty. C'mon, you can't just leave it like that without honestly calling that cool dude over here a spectacularly annoying cunt that would make this place neater by leaving, which is something he thankfully already did.

Okay, browsing through the thread, I'll go ahead and add tallies for the following:

Foresaken Overlook
High/Low 5
BuTtSeX E1
Stardate 20X6 (beautiful mapping, even if I'm completely dead on the gampelay)
Still have yet to play many of the noms. Will be back some other time to update the list.

With regard to DeathevokatioN's discussion with Memfis on the previous page, there have been a number of great mappers over the years passed up for the mapper of the year award due to the simple fact that there were a lot of other great mappers also releasing stuff around the same time. While it is true that the mapper of the year award only makes sense if it's an actual mapper of the year award, some sort of "lifetime achievement award" has been suggested for the Cacowards before. This would allow for honoring authors like Espi, who made a significant impact on the community over a longer period of time with a small number of very carefully and methodically crafted projects.

Would we be nominating BTSX one episode at a time? If so, I'd easily nominate Episode 1, (and hopefully before year's end I can add E2 to that list!)

However, if they're being judged as one continuous 3 episode 80+ levels MEGAmegawad, it looks like we'll have to wait till the 2014 cacowards or so for that.

Also, Corsair/Pirate Doom should be more than considered for a Cacoward.

EDIT - My vote would go towards Espi being posthumously honored as well.

I still find mind* blowing tricks in Espi maps to this day, he definitely deserves some sort of "lifetime achievement award".

Given it's been 20 years since doom was released, I think a lifetime achievement award would be a great idea and yeah Espi is definitely one mapper who would be top of the list for an award like that. His genius will live on :)

+1 for Concerned.

While I'm at it, I nominate dobugabumaru for Mapper of the Year: the maps he's made for NOVA, MAYhem 2013 and Panophobia are nothing short of breathtaking and I reckon he deserves recognition for them, not to mention the numerous other maps dotted around that he's created.

I vote for Back to Saturn X Episode 1. I'd like to see more Doom megawads portray that level of visual detail in the future. Also liked the 100% original textures/music thing, made it feel like its own thing.

I'd like to throw a nomination towards Ribbiks for mapper of the year. Besides creating the divisive yet captivating Stardate 20X6, arguably his most valuable contributions are his FDAs that he has given dozens of authors, allowing them to see the map through his trained eyes. Being a great designer and helping out a bunch of people with their maps is definitely worthy of the reward in my opinion.

Zone 300 and Unholy Realms. Both on recent threads.

The 100 Lines concept should get some type of mention IMO, though I think Z300 shows that's a far more reasonable limit that still keeps grasp of the general limit. I'd love to see more wads with such limits but a bit more relaxed than 100.

Don't worry me too, although I'm socially retarded both online and IRL, so I have an upper hand on you and you will never beat me.
