The DWIronman League dies to: 2017 Collection

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Come on you Brits! It's time to clean bowl mutt's title defense right in the PINS. Strike him down in his own alley!

 

Congratulations also to @Bdubzzz on his first DWIronman victory. Past results were a bit up and down but you've really come into your own this year. I hope you find some stiff competition in the months ahead! I plan to be there... eventually. The halcyon days of Insertion are a long time gone, now.

 

And welcome to our new members!

This is all so @an_mutt can have his request fulfilled in my ongoing Doom wad request list ahead of the others, isn't it?

mutt's gothic bloodwerks are meticulously crafted and flush-looking layouts with wholesale elimination of weapons, throttling of ammunition, and a strong emphasis on situational awareness. A deep understanding of Doom's combat intricacies is required to keep pace with this unconventional set

 

Wonderful. Just wonderful. And I'm so good at Doom already ...

The Doomworld Ironman League dies to @an_mutt's 2017 Collection

 

Does this mark the beginning of a tour of Britbowlers creations? That would only be fair instead of giving 1 Britbowler a natural edge over the rest (for only 1 month, but still). Does this mean that the coming months will see selections like Eviternity, Deathless, and Nova III or Behemoth?

So this is brit time for rest of the year? 

Never heard of this mapset too...it's too hidden. Let's see how I'll go with this one.

Never heard of this wad. I wonder when I will stumble upon a familiar/cat2 wad.

I so want this to happen.

I'm not really sure what I'm getting myself into but I'm going to give this a go for the sake of my brother. Out of moral support. And also an obligation to be his competitive sibling rival. In this household, one shot at Ironman League glory deserves another!

 

(I hope I properly understand and abide by the rules this time.)

You know, someone oughta put together a youtube highlights reel of the best fails of ironman over the years

 

This is a very good idea. Eris was in the habit of making videos of the TNS events a few years back and I was going to recruit him at the end of 2016 to put together something like this, but it fell through. Perhaps now is the time! We needn't wait for an anniversary.

 

I distinctly remember Archi slipping off a rocky platform in Crusades as he was firing his RL and face-planting into an explosion for one of the best Ironman deaths that year. There's a treasure trove of footage out there! I just have to read the obituaries and pick out the best.

Last month I had quite the advantage having played vanguard a bunch so it was a good mapset to score a victory on. Also I think my skills in doom have improved a lot recently just from doing a lot more speedruns and playing TNS every Thursday... where as in 2018... I never played TNS/survival before? Cant remember lol

 

Category 1 Survived in 1:11:47 - played this one quite carefully, as you have to do with blind map sets or else your chances of survival are probably quite low, but with that said I think my time will be easy to beat for mutt if he survives his own wad ;p

Spoiler

If you aren't good at tyson.. better practice before doing an attempt :D I will say the mapset is quite generous in health and armor... you just have to at least manage your ammo but there is plenty of room to take a few rev fireballs to the face and not be screwed.

All eyes now turn to the Britbowl

 

Speaking of the Britbowl, I don't recall seeing the standings in months. I know @Dragonfly makes the graphics by hand, and he's been rather busy lately (I mean, not busy enough to not stream 25+ days last month, but never mind that), so I'm not arguing for a new graphic. Just a list would be sufficient, for those of curious to the current standings.

 

And if the standings have been posted already and I just missed them ... then I'll fall back on citing my tremendous powers of observation.

The Britbowl standings pre-Sigil can be found here. Then just add points according to how they performed in Sigil and Lunatic/Vanguard months and u get the current Britbowl standings.

Category 1. Almost killed myself at the very beginning Survived in 1:41:23. I had only a few issues with this mapset, mostly with pain sectors and arch-vile ambushes. Other than that, it was pretty fun to play.

I can only produce these graphics while at work as I am a moron who still hasn't put the source files on my dropbox, heh. If I don't have too busy a day at work I'll try and get to it tomorrow.

(starts at 17:49 into the stream, since I do Ironeagle #10 first)

 

Category 1 run, died on map 4 to my old nemesis for the 585858th time. Was a fun mapset to then go on and finish from my Doom wad request list. I look forward to the creator's run later this month....

@Loud Silence Nice. Just for future reference and sorry for not putting this in the OP but if you could only use the latest stable build of Eternity and only when a vanilla set is selected (-complevel 2, 3) that would be great, thanks. That way I don't have to swap in a new engine just to play one demo and with the -vanilla parameter I can play it back in prboom/glboom+ for convenience.

That's okay! And yes, just for boom compatible stuff. Happy for you to keep using eternity in vanilla with the -vanilla parameter set. All good :)

 

I'm really enjoying watching these runs so far. I was concerned that the quirky design would hamstring too many of the regulars too early in the set but everyone is giving it a fair go. Imagine if @Suitepee died to that revenant at the start, though... my word. 10 health, was it?

 

Looking forward to the rest. I'm oddly giddy about this one!
