  1. It is very unfortunate, and both sides of this debacle certainly could've handled it MUCH better, but it is what it is. The WDL staff vanished without a trace, so it's safe to assume that the website is gone for good, along with lots of invaluable information that's gone down the drain as well. The community sorely needs people who are better at preserving their shit...

  3. Friendly reminder that signups will end in the 6th, which is in just a few days from now! Veterans and newcomers alike are more than welcome to get involved, of course.
  4. The signups for the 9th season of the World Doom League are now open! To those unfamiliar with it, the WDL is a 3vs3 Capture the Flag league hosted on Odamex. It boasts a rich history of 3 years and a half of eight successful seasons that provided no shortage of quality games and attendance from not just many established top players, but also many other newer players who rose to prominence thanks to the league's productive and helpful environment. Last season had seen record-breaking numbers with a whooping 49 entrants, and marked the first time a championship was awarded to a non top 2 seeded team! Aside from having arguably the highest level of CTF competition currently, it doesn't carry its own weight without all of the work done by some of the best administration and companionship there is in Doom competition. For more details on the proceedings of the league, and where to find us, read this. To any of you interested in signing up, please post your signup information in this this thread. Hope to see you there! Also, if you have any questions regarding the WDL, feel free to post here so that I (or other WDL regulars) can answer them!

    Wow, I knew it! That "the chaingun!!!!!" pickup message from lilith.pk3 wasn't a mere coincidence after all lmao I, for one, greatly look forward to your next projects. Keep in mind that those supporting your work vastly outweigh those who try to undermine it.

    Well, you certainly could have tried to articulate your arguments in a way that isn't blatantly disrespectful to the projects, their respective authors AND the writers for this year's awards, but that's just too much bloody work for someone riding a high horse like you, ain't it? Also, did you even play lilith at all, or are you just being mighty unreasonable about its reasonable port requirements again instead of having anything of substance to criticise about it?

    Congratulations to all of the winners! I'm pleased to always have my expectations blown out of the water to check out the year's award-winning wads every year, most of them for the first time (since I'm not very in the loop with every good release that comes out), and this year was no different. Many thanks to those who continue to challenge the limits of what can be done in this 24-years old game, and of course, those who embrace those limits and standards and keep on building great content to keep the more traditional side of the Doom spirit alive as well.
  8. Signups are ending in just a few days. We've got 40+ participating players, but more are always welcome! We could most likely make another 8-team season happen if just a few more active players would sign up. c:

    Aaron "DemonSphere" Emge has passed

    This is still unbelievable... :( I remember my first times playing CTF with/against him back in 2012. He was already really good at the time, yet he continued to get even better, and quickly became one of the best duelers to ever grace this game, and a top-notch WDL captain to boot. He was also really friendly, passionate and funny to everyone outside of the game; it was a genuine pleasure to have him around, regardless of what we were up to. One of my fondest memories with DS and many others was when we played priv right after the second WDL draft, and then practised a lot throughout the season. Everyone was clearly enjoying the game so much, and I'm sure we were all happy to have him be an invaluable part of this competitive community for many of those years. Rest in peace, DemonSphere. You're an inspiration to me in and out of the game, and you will be painfully missed. Thanks for all of the games, friend...
  12. Sorry for your trouble, but much appreciated. In other news, we've got 25+ players currently signed up! Come join us, and let's make this season a crowded one.
  13. I honestly still find it difficult to fathom that DemonSphere is no longer with us. He was a legendary player and a good-hearted person and friend. Truly gone far, far too soon.


    May you find peace wherever you are now, my friend...

      He was a beast at this game, no joke. I think he might've been a contender for the #1 duel player these days. He also came close to winning the WDL twice in a row over the past couple of seasons, and I was particularly excited about the idea of maybe playing for his team if he picked me. My heart's genuinely shattered to know that is never going to happen though...


      Fucking hell, why did this have to happen?

      DS was an inspiration for me when I first started taking an interest in duels a few years ago. He was such a class act, always willing to take the time to play with us less-skilled players and chill over voice chat (never mind that he wiped the floor with us!). A very kind and patient man.


      Doomworld may not be so familiar with what he meant to the competitive scene and the people in it, but it is not a tragedy that's unfamiliar to us. Doom has a very storied history, now, and the passing of people who mean so much to so many is, regrettably, something we may have to come to terms with as we move forward. May we find solidarity in such times.


      Thank you, DemonSphere. GGs.

      I had just met him IRL this past QuakeCon, but played with him in countless MP games for the past year... Broke my heart today when I heard the news...


      My heart goes out to his friends & family. He will be missed.

    Are you kidding? Cringy raps are the pinnacle of salty contentions! This gem from the Smash Bros community doesn't have nearly a million views for nothing, y'know.
  15. Sign-ups have been extended until October 1st. It's a relatively low-commitment event, so don't be afraid to come by!
