Fair warning that the biggest jump across skill levels is between UV and HMP in 20X6. You should probably consider HNTR as more of a mulligan, with very few monsters being deducted from HMP's total, if any (though you will be graced with the odd extra power-up).

 

Ribbiks also appears to have "about-faced" some of the monsters in traps on lower settings, which should give you some time to prepare before executing a strategy.

I might practice this time around as 1CC (read: slaughter) did me no good in the past.

Uh oh, a Ribbiks WAD.

 

Hey, not too rough :D .

 

Be glad it's 20x6 and not 20x7, I can guarantee we'll both die on MAP01 in that one (provided I even find the way, which took me hours when I first played it). Loved 20x6, but hated most of 20x7 (you can read my review on it if you want to know why).

 

I'll make my run later today, if not, probably tomorrow, it's going to be a Cat 2 this time since I played both Stardates before.

Pretty much what I thought. At least the 1CC rule might make it tolerable on a blind run for me.

 

(also shouldn't this be in Wads & Mods?)

Oh, yikes, not sure how I managed to overlook that. I don't think I can move it from my end. If a mod could handle that I'd be grateful!

So I made my run today after all, and as usual, it sucks. Died on MAP01 after running from one side of the map to the other as I forgot how you were supposed to dispatch the Cyberdemon and ran straight into a rocket.

 

Now if you'll excuse, I'm going to rage after another massive disappointment, similar to how I did after my death on MAP01 of Plutonia. I really need to accept I'm trash at Doom and stop expecting to ever survive any Ironman run. It's not happening, too many opportunities, never seized a single one. Cat 2.

Since WADs here are always cruel, this league could be named: "Alfonzo's Torture House". Kidding. :) Went in completely blind (starting record was very first launch of this WAD). I killed few bastards, but... i deleted demo.

No, not really. Some might be perceived as such, others really aren't that big of a deal, if you're careful.

 

This coming from someone who still dies in easy-to-medium difficulty wads like an idiot but sometimes thinks he's otherwise "decent".

Dead on MAP02, no HMP or HNTR attempts.

dwironman-sd20x6-AC.lmp - Category 2

 

Survived map 1, and died in 2 to the exact fight I expected to kill me.

Satisfied with my performance, honestly.

Anyway the 2019 standings have been updated and it's unsurprisingly dominated by Krypto but there's already battles for 2nd (Beginner, antares and me out of all people) and 5th (dt_, an_mutt, Vince Vega, Anima Zero and WH-Wilou84) forming.

An addition to the table was also made - it now has the movement aka how many places you've gained/lost in regards to last month. I'll possibly also add the current Top 10 to this post too if somebody's too lazy to see it on that link in the OP.

 

For instance it's visible Scotty rose 10 places in regards to last month, whereas leodoom85 fell 9 places.

 

TOP 10

Spoiler

1. Bloodite Krypto (=)

2. Beginner (=)

3. antares031 (+4)

4. NaZa (+2)

5. dt_ (+4)

6. Vince Vega (+6)

7. an_mutt (+1)

8. Anima Zero (-3)

9. WH-Wilou84 (+1)

10. Alfonzo (+3)

Meanwhile, I'm only now noticing the 1CC rule.

 

Not like it matters, I'll probably add another 2 dumb deaths on MAP01 on both HMP and HNTR. I need to chill out, but that won't change the facts... and I was primarily interested in UV anyway since that's how I beat it the first time around if memory doesn't fail me.

Stardate 20x6 'ey? Last time I played this, I chose ITYTD and still died a lot. Even with ICC rules, I'll consider myself fortunate to reach Map03. But I'll give it a go. Who's afraid of a bunch of sprites? ;)

wtf happened to Feb 29th and Feb 30th, it's March already?

anyways i've done the UV part of my attempt so far:

I finished Map01 in 53 minutes because I was looking for the plasma rifle (didn't find it...) and jumping around on stuff.  I even spent some time trying to get stuck in a 32 wide inescapable pit I found because I can't pass such a curious opportunity, but I couldn't even manage that because I suck so much (see pic)



Eventually I caved and exitted... then choked hard at the very beginning of Map02 and died on UV.

That's a really good result for now, Noisy. Good follow-up to last month's drought-breaking performance as well. Good luck with the remaining two lives.

funny enough, on Map02, there's also an

inescapable stalagmite pit you can get stuck in even earlier in the map

:))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

 

(speed is 05 because I had to screenshot the frames from the demo playback)

Spoiler

After dominating the map both on UV and HMP I died at the end due to my own stupidity after getting hit by a Cyberdemon rocket which made me disoriented both times.

I got demoralized.

I played like shit on HNTR and got to MAP02 where I got stuck in the stalagmite pit I was warned about...

 

Category 3, which should be apparent due to my extensive knowledge of MAP01; for sure if I wasn't so horribly unlucky on UV and HMP I would've gotten quite deep into MAP02 since I practiced up to the halfway mark of MAP03. I only practiced it on UV, though; I didn't run the maps on the lower skill settings...

 

I look forward to being last, and if a slaughter wad ever again gets picked in the future, I'll carefully avoid the thread. :P

UV: Dead on MAP01

HMP: Dead on MAP02
HNTR: Dead on MAP02

That's no Mud Bunny, that's a Killer Rabbit.

 

Category is 2, I've completed the wad before, although that was over a year ago.

 

I actually remembered that the grand teleporter battle on map02 was the final battle before the exit, so I was all pumped when I completed the fight... only to realize I still had some keys to collect before I could exit. Crap

Excuse me, you're stealing my rank.

 

No one else has died on MAP01 yet (beside JudgeDeadd) :D.

My deaths from UV to HNTR: 2-3-3, I died twice in the same room on map 3! (category 1)

 

 

I expected a boring slaughterwad but no, It's a pretty good wad with interesting battles.
