Map11: Circle of Death, or 'O' of Destruction?

  1. 1. Map11: Circle of Death, or 'O' of Destruction?

    • Circle of Death!
    • 'O' of Destruction!


Recommended Posts

The pun on circle of life is a bit banal for me, so i much prefer the 'O' of Destruction as it's got a plethora of meanings, varying from crude and fun to deep and depressing!

I just like to call it the introductory Archvile level.

Or "Romero's first one of the game"

the only way you're meant to see it called 'o' of destruction is if you use the automap.

 

doomguy doesn't need to ask for directions so circle of death it is.

Of course Doomguy doesn't need to ask directions. He's got an automap!

'O' of destruction! sounds eerie enough to predict a strange level with even a map30-like boss-like contraption (the 'O' in question). Too bad that it's actually a pretty generic slime-flood map, which is even shown up in the first demo.

 

"Circle of death" is a generic "X of death" name, something you can easily come up when you have no other names in mind (second to "X of doom").

I like 'O of Destruction' because it reminds me of Mr Bill saying "Oh No!", but I like Circle of Death because it sounds like 'Angel of Death' by Slayer. I can just imagine Tom Araya screaming "Circle of Death!! Monarch to the ringlet of the dead!"

 

HUNTED! The meaning of pain

I'd go with "Dodecagon of Die" :D

 

This is brilliant, but my moronic brain originally read it as "dogecan of die", and I was like, what's a dogecan? The cheaper version of dogecoin?

 

I need to get off the Internet more.

In the upcoming “Oops, all O’s!” community project, my map is gonna be called Loop O’ Poop and be heavily reliant on the brown nukage textures. Everyone else can have their fancy names, I just need the basics!

 

This really could be an interesting idea for a project. In all seriousness my plate is too full but if it were to happen, I’d claim a slot.

Lol a megawad solely made up of Circle Of Death remakes/tributes. 

Funny enough, I'm plowing through Memento Mori II and recently played map 21, a part of which has an obvious tribute to it.  Add that to Slayer from Plutonia (ALSO map 21) and.... probably some more from classic fan megawads

I genuinely really like this idea too.

 

Whether it was a megawad of circular sector maps, or direct tributes to doom2 map11 (whatever it's called), it could be really cool.

 

It could be called Tryp 'O' Phobia.

The fact that this poll has remained SO even is the best possible result!

It's even funnier that a singular person is keeping 'O' of Destruction in the lead

This thread is still going? Circle of Death, then. A slightly cheesier name probably goes better with Doom, to be honest. It wasn't long before I played that map when I saw a Simpsons episode where a biker challenged Homer to duel in the "circle of death." I know it's really stupid, but I smile every time I see that.
