the doom community is not the same anymore.

Recommended Posts

No one gets tired of old things quite like people on a forum dedicated to a game from 1994.

It's likely not the same.

 

I've been playing DooM since the shareware release [I'm THAT old :-)] and there are many like me here that have also grown up and matured while still loving DooM. Our outlook and way of thinking will have changed accordingly as we matured. Therefore, the DooM community will have changed because of that.

 

Also, the collective knowledge and skill that the community has is much greater than it was 20 years ago, so the maturity and quality of much of the new content has also increased over the years.

 

So, yes, the community is not the same, but there is so much more experience around now that he community is much better for it.

Well you guys do have a point but I don't have many friends who is willing to play multiplayer but once in awhile me and Yuki senmatsu play and we always have fun but sometimes I want other people to join too and that list I made had nothing to do with the first post I just thought I'd mention old zdoom and gzdoom too 

Skulltag has bots.

 

Something I don't like is being forced to use openGL. Or at least telling me to use it.

I'm one of the few people that still use SkullTag(because of bots) and ZDoom(I only use GZDoom when a mod needs it). Don't ask why.

You can make more friends here. Perhaps broaden your horizons on what kind of ports you use.

You should talk to @Doomkid as he's very much involved with the Multiplayer side of the Doom community and could easily help you join some active servers, play some Deathmatch and make new friends.

I do remember LOS which is an awesome wad, but I never completed it.

There's also:

❄ Barrels Of Doom which sadly has been lost due to the original site that has changed

❄ Perfect DOOM which suffered the same fate

 

I do have others, but I forget the names of them. It's been forever since I played those

Hey, the first one, do you mean barrel.wad?

About a decade ago or more, I was regularly on any Skulltag server I could find that was hosting Armageddon v2.5. I've never heard of any of the other ones OP mentions, but that's probably cause I found one thing I liked and stuck to it. It was the best thing ever to me at that time. 

 

These days I'm regularly on any Zandronum server I can find that's hosting Complex Doom Invasion. Discovered it last year and I've been having a lot of fun playing it. Great stress relief. Server activity is up and down but there's usually someone playing (probably me), if you're in a server with runes you can just tank everything solo but it is quite a lot of fun with I'd say a minimum of 3-4 players.
