Cacowards 2018 Mentionation Thread (don't toot your own horn ffs)

Recommended Posts

I'm going to add one more mentionation for The Revenant Problem!

 

DO NOT READ THIS IF YOU HAVE NOT PLAYED THIS .WAD, IT IS A MASTERPIECE AND YOU MUST PLAY IT FOR YOURSELF FIRST:

Spoiler
Spoiler

I'M SERIOUS!

Spoiler

IT WILL TAKE LITERALLY TEN MINUTES!

Spoiler

Okay, here's the actual spoiler now:

Spoiler

When I saw that I had to choose between either letting Daisy die or killing Hissy I nearly threw up in my mouth... No doomer should ever be forced to make such a cruel choice!

 

Afterwards I saw that I needed to sacrifice either Crate #2 or Crate #3 and that was when I actually did throw up in my mouth.

Quake Champions Doom Edition now that it's released out in the wild. A lot of effort has been put in this as always by DBT.

Seconding this. An extremely polished mod for a first public release, QC:DE is a stand out game play mod IMO for catering to a large variety of game play modes (including single player, cooperative, deathmatch, capture the flag), providing it's own well-crafted mapset, an extremely well done OST, as well as collaborating/building on what the community has already made via Aeon QCDE. It also caught a lot of attention outside the community, bringing in many new players (today we saw up to 45 players across 3 servers, most of which were new faces in doom).

 

Also the most important bit is that it actually plays quite well and is a blast in the servers, of course.

I'd also like to mentioninate QC:DE. The mod is the cream of the crop, the creme de la creme, whichever you prefer. Combined with maximum compatibility, outstanding multiplayer AND singleplayer, must not forget that. Of course, its not a 1:1 remake of Quack Champagne, but it does do an outstanding job at rebalancing the less used weapon in QC. Hats off to theDBTeam.

QC:DE deserves a Cacoward without any doubt, mostly because for being so flexible, you're is allowed to played it with an old version of GZDoom, something that I think every mod should try to do.

 

A lot of work and many details bringing up in SP (with lot of modes and characters to switch in) and the Monsters Bestiary is not only limited to the four standard types of enemies (Doom enemies, Quake I, II and IV), because you can load it with monsters replacement mods like Kriegsland enemies mod, DoomKrakker's Monster Randomizer mod, Dark Doom creatures mod, etc. And of course, the MP is something with even more effort, custom maps with an awesome quality and perfect OST, and bringing up modes like the previous mentioned by decay.

 

Lot of fun, faithful recreation to the original game using others resources too and an amazing quality even for an standard PC.

After viewing that trailer, QC:DE is a lock for Cacoward.  Hands down.  I would definitely nominate it.

The truth is, once a mod surpasses a point in popularity, we automatically exclude it from consideration.

 

There's nothing more damning for the quality of a mod than people enjoying it!

Sounds like a great idea for a mod:

 

Hipster Doom

You know the most popular mod in this thread so far is based on an ethical philosophy problem, right? I think it's fair to say we're a bunch of hipsters.

Is it okay to nominate something by someone who is banned from DW?

 

If so, Ezekiel (Abridged Version) is pretty nice.

If we're going to go full hipster for a mod, how about 

 

Craft Beer Doom?

I'm wondering if the collective concept of ASS could be considered for awardification.

 

Yes there is a little horn dooting here, I guess.  But the few sessions we've had post revival have been really solid.  While I don't consider any single session worthy of an award, the entire years work?  I dunno.  For consideration.

+1 for mentionating ASS. don't care which one, most of them past a certain point have good stuff in 'em, and the bad stuff is so laughable you enjoy it

Unless/until someone else comes up more befitting for the Espi award, I think it should go to CodeImp for making Doom Connector.

As far as I know (feel free to correct me if I'm wrong), Doom Connector was the first server browser of its kind and it paved the way for ZDaemon's built in server browser, Internet Doom Explorer (now just called Doom Explorer), and Doomseeker.

 

Also, KateFox will no doubt be getting one too, if not, some sort of mention for everything she's done

So, basically, ASS for Mappers of the Year?
