Cacowards 2014 nomination thread

Recommended Posts

Nominating mouldy for mapper of the year. Certainly enough contributions to various community projects and also the fantastic Going Down.

tourniquet for most promising newcomer.

He only has 2 maps on ID Games map 20 from Mayhem2048 and E3M4 from Switcheroom. He does have 4 completed maps waiting for their projects to be finished, 2 of which are in Switcheroom 2 and 2 are for Nova 2.

From what I've seen and played these are the PWADs I've most been impressed with this year:

Countdown to Extinction
Going Down
Resurgence
Mayan Mishap

So +1 for these I guess.

+1, his stuff impressed me even more than stuff of the guys I named 2 pages back. If I realized that tourniquet was actually a newcomer, I'd have already nominated him too.

^ I don't think a compilation of unchanged maps by random authors from the 90's is a valid Cacoward 2014 candidate.

The Golden Souls
Adventures of Square
Countdown to Extinction
Mayan Mishap
Going Down

Honestly there's too many wads I liked this year to name them all, but these ones come to mind instantly so I guess that speaks well on their behalf!

All the good stuff I've seen has already been mentioned, but just to add a couple more nominations for Bauhaus and Bloody Steel, very stylish wads with fun gameplay.

I'm way late to the party, but here's a +1 for Flashback to Hell and the criminally underrated Apostasy on Amalthea. I'd also like to nominate Bedlam -- just a spectacular E3 replacement.

-1 for CGI duels so you don't have to worry bout it at all youre welcome

Did I +1 Push yet? It's goddamn amazing and everyone should be playing it forever

I hope the actual Cacowards will be radically different. And not just because I disagree about a lot of these, but mainly because it would be boring if Cacowards were so predictable.

I would like to +1 GMOTA and DemonSteele, if I'm allowed to do more than one. If only one, then GMOTA.

I'm not sure what you're expecting. Here's my prediction: we'll see Cacowards for Going Down, BTSXE2, Adventures of Square, Resurgence, Flashback to Hell, and some other stuff.

Well everything that won or was a runner last year was also nominated, so I don't expect anything different this time.

2013 tallies
winners
-BTSX = 13
-D2TWID = 16
-Unholy Realms = 11
-ZDCMP2 = 3
-Fuel Devourer = 1
-Kuchitsu = 1
-Forsaken Overlook = 7
-Stardate 20X6 = 11
-Pirate Doom = 17
-Swim With The Whales = 2
runner ups
-Interception = 5
-Hadephobia = 6
-Hellbound = 16
-High/Low 5 = 2
-SoulCrusher = 3
-Stomper = 1
highest rated losers
-Concerned = 11
-Zone 300 = 9

I predict that the winners & runner ups will be from this list:

20 that have a chance to make it
The Adventures of Square 15 Standalone
Resurgence 11
BTSXE2 9
Mayan Mishap 5
Shadows of Chronos 4 Hexen
Dead of Winter 3
Monster Hunter Ltd 3

The Room Below 2
20 Years of Doom 1
Incineration 1
Muskadet 1
MWDoom Episode 1 1
Plutonia 1024 1
Swift Death 1

& these will be the most liked losers this year:

highest rated losers
Going Down 19
PSX Doom TC 14 Old?
Doom 2 - Flashback to Hell 7

Do you have any recommendations for wads that have been missed? Of course you're going to be disappointed if you're just here to turn your nose up at the entirety of a list comprising every wad that anyone at all has nominated all year.

Hey Gez, CtE has about 6 votes, not 3. Just pointing that out.

*Slinks off*

They're actually 5 (me, Magnusblitz, Captain Ventris, purist, Doomkid). It seems that I've nominated it twice, once at the year's beginning, and once when I was summing up the whole year in November. :)
