Cacowards 2021 Mentionation Thread

Recommended Posts

I think that there should be a rule that if you're nominated by the king himself, you automatically win all the year's cacowards.

I mean @Roebloz cannot be understated even before Romero's Seal of Approval - The mere fact he pulled it off with John at his age makes him at the very least elligible for a newcomer award.

 

Ofcourse, SIGIL working in 32X is an amazing feat, ill reference it on the Wiki for pure aweosmeness.

 

Having said that, one of his first projects was the Cybersweeper hack for 32X and although i barely did anything for him, he honored me as a texture.

 

Which is not really an achievement in IRL means but the fact that Roebloz just did that of the cuff.

 

I think its great seeing relatively new fresh faces such as his shaping up in the community. And with Romero's Seal, it becomes a challenge to overrule, @Not Jabba.. :P

 

PS: As a side:

@OpenRift, not just for Twango or his Twangotex pack (I hope it sees usage!) but also (But this isn't nomination worthy i know, i just want it recorded for posterity) for holding a particularly niche interest within Doom: That of executable hacks, Doom95 and the like. Its inspiring having someone ask those silly-coot questions that cover the more unknown parts of Doom.

 

Man, is this year's Cacowards going to rock!

Oh, and I'd like you guys to not forget @TheLesha's work on D32x: Delta. Without him, the project wouldn't have gotten as far as it did.

Man, it's only April and it feels like we have the entire Cacowards top ten. The list of runner-ups is going to be really long and close.

 

Of the six (at least) MIDI packs we have gotten or will get this year, it'd be interesting to see who gets the Dootaward. Instead of self-promoting on a project that's incomplete anyway, I'm going to suggest the one that started this blitz in the first place: +1 Master Levels 25th Anniversary MIDI Pack

Awwwwww, thank you! That really does mean a lot to me.

 

I think I probably should make TWANGOTEX an actual thing, that was originally just a provision of the TWANGO logo in texture form with various sizes. As for the other textures in TWANGO1.WAD, you can thank @Gokuma for those. Not to mention he and @Doomkid were a big help with this project and was the main reason it didn't turn out like dogshit, lol.

In addition to those MIDI packs, there's been some great tracks in WADs themselves, like Heartland and Arrival for example. There's going to be A LOT of music up for this award.

 

It is insane how many MIDI packs we're getting this year. I can't recall something like that happening too often before, other than for Plutonia.

I have it listed in the Texture pack page on the Wiki. I hope it can become a good asset to include in new DM flavored wads :)

Mike Spenard - Web, Web2 (not used since his map01 edit for Dwango 22nd Anniv didn't make it in)

 

? - Pogman, Wfall*, LavFall replacing DBrain*, Sky1,2,3,

 

@Doomkid might be to credit for Wfall or LavFall.

Whoever made Lite5R (maybe Mike Tawney or Ikka Kiranen)

Festering Cesspool by @Soulless. Definitely the most fun I’ve had in a Doom map thus far this year

I'm surprised no one's done that yet in the history of the Cacowards.

It's great if the thread outgrew its original purpose and people use it to fish for good wads, however there is absolutely no way we'd ever consider a homer award like that. It's already stressful enough to consider projects in which committee members are involved and "expelling" them from the discussion. Tooting our own horn on how good cacowards are as a concept is unacceptable.

The Cacoward Cacoward for Cacowardness in Cacowarditude goes to the Cacowards.

 

Basically that but with Cacoward instead of Malkovich:

I recall one of the awards shows used to present an award for "Best Awards Show," so there's a precedent of sorts. It's not the Cacoward committee's fault that there is only one group giving out annual awards for quality in and related to Doom mapping.

related, but I always wish the annual crop of "playing the year's Cacowards" Twitch streams swapped in some runners-up (whichever seem appealing) instead of sticking to the top-10. because the variation in any player's personal taste will be much bigger than the difference between Cacos and runners-up can possibly be. (that would be true even if a judgment bot existed that could choose everything "perfectly," with no human factor.) 

 

that would be less critical if many groups did awards -- you'd have different "top-10s" to intersect. but the proper way to account for that, in a world where one group does it, is to treat 1-10 and 11-20(+) as kinda close in theory and pick whatever looks interesting to play.

+1 to Death's Dichotomy, I feel it passed by for many people. It's a really good mapset.

 

I also finished Refracted Reality and it was great. I don't know why it hadn't a Cacoward or a runnerup in 2020. Was it because they were waiting until the complete release at a later date?

I'll just give my +1 to the full version of Blade of Agony. It's probably the most impressive TC/standalone project I've ever seen and there's so much new stuff in it, it feels like it should count as a separate release from the 2016 one that already won a Cacoward.

Although Blade of Agony - Episode 1 won a Cacoward back in 2016, is the full release eligible for 2021?

Probably not unless episode 2 got one. That said I do think it deserves at least some kind of mention
