  1. December, 2019 > Download Scythe > NaZa's unofficial leader board Leaderboards What is the Doomworld Ironman League? The DWIronman League is a monthly competition in which participants aim to survive for as many levels as possible in the given map set, preferably in one sitting. Click the spoiler tag below for a detailed list of rules. Players of all levels of ability are welcome. It could change the way you play Doom! In December 2019 The Doomworld Ironman League is visited by The Ghost of Christmas... Death? @Erik Alm's Scythe is one of the quintessential Ironman WADs. Speedrunners will call it breakfast, but for a young and sprightly Alfonzo it was the gateway to a new mode of play, and a terrible thing to behold. Amazingly, using some shameful combination of cowardice, corner-camping and good luck, I managed to Run For It! all the way to MAP30 in 2010... only to chicken out and abandon the save game file for months out of fear I would cock it all up. Which, of course, I did, in the end. It was my one and only attempt, and it became a spectre of defeat that dangled over my head for almost a decade. Dangled like a scythe! Now, then, at the turn of a new decade, it is time to put this matter to bed. It is also time for me to step down as convener for The Doomworld Ironman League. Commitments elsewhere in life have completely pantsed all possibility of my upholding standards, here. @NaZa, who has essentially been running the joint for the last six-or-so months and been my right hand statistician for much, much longer, will step into the role to keep things ticking over. And I'm sure he'll do a stand-up job! While I continue to enjoy thinking up fun ways to entertain the league each month and watching the demos roll in (and, uh, occasionally the demos themselves), the task demands more attention than I can spare, for now and into the foreseeable future. Now seems the right time to make a move, with 2020 around the corner. I want to thank all the participants who have made this such a successful staple of the Doomworld forums. Not just the evergreen survivalists, but everyone who kept rocking up up damn near every month to charge into death, time and time again; those who have dipped their toes in to test the waters; those who have surged in like a storm front and ripped the competition a new one, only to disappear and never be seen or heard from again. I can't name one person or I'll end up naming them all... so a great big group group hug to @everyone! It's been real. Good luck to all in 2020. I'll participate where I can and die screaming with the best of them. Blind, too, maybe! Isn't that exciting? Essential Info Doom 2 as the IWAD selected. Compatibility level 2, or "(Doom (strict))" for ZDoom derivative ports. 32 levels total. Death exits on MAP10, MAP20.

    What the category numbers mean has changed somewhat since they were introduced, so looking back at previous months can be confusing. Category 3 used to mean what the current "Prepared" leader board does: practicing your run after the WAD has been announced and then self-declaring the official run before it's made. Now, category 3 is a first attempt like any other on the Standard leader board, except the player will have watched either a stream or a demo of the WAD being played before making his run. The 3 categories only exist to serve the Standard leader board. There are no categories for the Prepared leader board.

Click the spoiler tag below for a detailed list of rules. Players of all levels of ability are welcome. It could change the way you play Doom! In November 2019 The Doomworld Ironman League dies to Abcess, an episode of six levels by resident pelt-farmer @Steve D. Abcess was released in 2017 but finalized nearly two decades prior in 1998, so the adoring hordes of Duff's Heat Miser will find precious few blankets of cacodemons to blast out of the sky. It has a more classic lean, instead, with wide networks of loosely textured corridors and with very open combat design. Navigation can be a bit tricky for some; resource management a problem for others. Expect a slow build and some customarily rude awakenings... from the '90s! (no Insertion crushers, I promise) This set comes at the old recommendation of @Demon of the Well, who is sorely missed... and probably still trapped down there, for all we know.

    Ah, that's great to hear! Thank you! I really wish I could have kept pace these last few months if only for this reason. Obituary writing was one of the most attractive parts of hosting for me, too. I'll make sure I cover each and every run before December is out :) On a related note, I think it's important that character continues to play the biggest part in this "comp". That's why folks like @Pegleg are so great to have on board, and why having something like the Britbowl naturally emerge out of the League is so heartening. @TMD used to throw caution to the wind in his old runs just for the audience, so his runs were among my favorite to watch on-stream in 2016/17. If it were all just about placement and numbers, it'd all be a bit of a dirge. I think we've managed to avoid that and there's a big future for this thing, yet, the more we focus on the fun asides like streaming and rivalries.

    Let's see if we can rope in some fools for this end-of-year Christmas massacre. I want everyone and their dog dead on the dance floor. Heads will fucking roll, ya hear?? Black metal shit! Rivers of blood so wide they flow out of the front page and into whatever Wonderland tea party the DWMegawad Club kids are having over there, with their plastic cups and tailcoats. Merry Christmas!

    October's gig is still running! You have until the end of this month — not the 10th of the next — to complete both this challenge and the previous one. Heaven knows I'll need the time to roll back and watch some demos (and make a recording of my own, for that matter). I might even write an obituary or two, just like old times. Don't hold your breath or anything. Just play some Doom.

In October 2019 The Doomworld Ironman League dies to Monster Hunter @didy, an accomplished agent who runs his own dismemberment business out of a war-torn district in urban Hell on Earth. Perhaps you've heard of it? These two single levels are busted-up, grungy, greasy sprawls with photoreal texturing (think lainos but with more flotsam and less politics). As is typical for maps of its kind, aesthetically, they both demand patience and tactical nous, and details can be both an impediment and a concealment for goodies. Stay frosty... and try to steer clear of any sentient pillars of smoke if at all possible. Similar to what was done with CC4 MAP20 and MAP21 last year, here your kills will aggregate across both levels and both levels must be played in order.

  9. Mixed news! Or just outright bad news if you're waiting for me to get my act in order and update something ⁠— anything ⁠— and get that leaderboard ticking over... Because of my absence, this month's challenge will continue until the end of November. November's challenge will commence on the 10th. Apologies to those who are craving more Ironman traction. Things have been hectic and there are a lot of Doom duties that remain unresolved, on my end. If this continues I will need to find someone to assist me in keeping things moving along smoothly (@NaZa has been doing amazing work for well over a year, now). Thanks for your patience and understanding.
  10. rd's on the money. I'll probably make some sort of mini glossary so I can stamp each challenge with a single word for everyone's convenience. I think I attempted this a while ago for a month or two and then, just... stopped? Anyway, yes: two seperate WADs; mohu1.wad played before mohu2.wad; one life only as though they were two maps back-to-back in the 01 and 02 slots. You can't play mohu2 if you die in mohu1. This will usually be done for maps that are perhaps insufficient as standalone challenges but combined make for a compelling "single level" experience. Another example of this would be the Jägermörder duology (although these two don't occupy the same MAP01 slot, for convenience), which we will play at some point. Something that isn't an example of this would be the Vrack series, which I would definitely aggregate kills for but allow multiple lives for, also. In this case, it's because they are satisfactory standalone challenges... I just like the idea of packaging series ala Vae Victus, especially if the total play time falls into a snug bracket.
  11. You don't have to kill all the monsters, but if you fail to survive the set (both levels combined, in this case) then the number of monsters you do kill will determine where you rank. If you survive the set, time alone is the determining factor.
  12. My goodness, look at all these new names cropping up in the winners column! Isn't it great? You'd best make hay while the Demon stays camped in his Well, struggling with the reception, however. I have a feeling this is a window that's probably going to close. In any case, well done to all accomplished and returning Ironmen! I will be away at the turn of the month and so won't be able to view demos and update boards past a certain point... not that I needed a reason to slack off before. I probably won't even have access to a computer and there's bugger all chance I can format this stuff on my dinky little phone, so I'll have November's challenge all set up and posted by roughly the 20th, this month.

In September 2019 The Doomworld Ironman League dies to @t.v.'s Revolution!, a doomcute megawad from 2003 and a champion of representational design in the abstract.

    The DWIronman League dies to: Revolution!

    It's October 1st. I've done it again, McCain! Cat 3, died on MAP14 because I started running around like a headless chicken not knowing what corner to jump into, overly mindful of the cyberdemon (which I'm pretty sure fired exactly 0 rockets) and partially distracted by Dan Aykroyd's babbling on about UFOs in the podcast I was listening to. I should have put on something less stimulating in its weirdness... or maybe something not at all weird, like Steven Pinker. dwironman_39_alfnz.zip I look forward to further realizing my dwindling Doom skills next month this month, holy shit.

Click the spoiler tag below for a detailed list of rules. Players of all levels of ability are welcome. It could change the way you play Doom! In August 2019, The Doomworld Ironman League dies to @an_mutt's 2017 Collection, a small episode of medium-sized levels borrowing heavily from the sorts of high concept design that defined much of the speed-mapping era in the middle part of the decade. But this, as mutt states explicitly in the text file, is not the result of any speed-mapping session. mutt's gothic bloodwerks are meticulously crafted and flush-looking layouts with wholesale elimination of weapons, throttling of ammunition, and a strong emphasis on situational awareness. A deep understanding of Doom's combat intricacies is required to keep pace with this unconventional set; and so I expect a great many unconventional deaths.

    The DWIronman League dies to: Revolution!

    Yes, thanks NaZa. Will likely be a couple of days before I do any updates. Usually the first few days don't feature any as I'm trying to preserve cat [2] status for my own run! On this occasion though I did sneak a look at mutt's, so it's cat [3] once I get around to it. I'll let the league know once it's up to date.

    You're a gentleman and a scholar pirate, Pegleg. Your sturdy wooden prosthetic alone would buttress the competition but you choose to carry the league on your shoulders, instead. What spirit! A true hero of these forums! Songs will be written about your Ironman endeavors for generations to come, long after death has claimed you a final time and your shiny doubloons and trinkets have been melted down for scraps, or possibly expropriated by the authorities. ...Though the songs will have to be short, I think. To match the length of your demos. 0 monsters. An unbeatable record. Congratulations.

    That's okay! And yes, just for boom compatible stuff. Happy for you to keep using eternity in vanilla with the -vanilla parameter set. All good :) I'm really enjoying watching these runs so far. I was concerned that the quirky design would hamstring too many of the regulars too early in the set but everyone is giving it a fair go. Imagine if @Suitepee died to that revenant at the start, though... my word. 10 health, was it? Looking forward to the rest. I'm oddly giddy about this one!

    @Loud Silence Nice. Just for future reference and sorry for not putting this in the OP but if you could only use the latest stable build of Eternity and only when a vanilla set is selected (-complevel 2, 3) that would be great, thanks. That way I don't have to swap in a new engine just to play one demo and with the -vanilla parameter I can play it back in prboom/glboom+ for convenience.

    DW's old hosted sites

    Doom Underground is the reason I'm here. I can't remember exactly when this was ⁠— 2003, maybe? ⁠— but for a time I sourced all of my Doom material from that site, building my knowledge of PWADs up from nothing to something resembling an essentials library of classics, plus extras. Maybe this has something to do with why I bee-lined straight for the /newstuff center when I became a member in 2010 (though, sadly, making a pig's ear of the writing). Thanks, Colin!

    This is a very good idea. Eris was in the habit of making videos of the TNS events a few years back and I was going to recruit him at the end of 2016 to put together something like this, but it fell through. Perhaps now is the time! We needn't wait for an anniversary. I distinctly remember Archi slipping off a rocky platform in Crusades as he was firing his RL and face-planting into an explosion for one of the best Ironman deaths that year. There's a treasure trove of footage out there! I just have to read the obituaries and pick out the best.
