Status Updates posted by Zakken

  1. I have to make a genuine effort to be more active in Doomworld. It's honestly crazy how active this place is compared to some other Doom places I frequent, and I hope to make a better name for myself in here than just "that one Sunder/BTSX fanboy who plays competitive CTF"...


    So yeah, how are you guys doing today?

  2. 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.

  3. Reminder to be nice to those who are lesser-skilled than you are. This goes double in competitive gamemodes of any kind. Don't bully players just because they're new and aren't that good; you were one of them too!

      Most people aren't nice to those who are more skilled than they are. Tear people down to your level sort of thing.

      it's nice to be important but it's more important to be nice

  4. My first status update, yay. Might as well introduce myself!


    Hello, I'm Zakken. I've been in the community since 2009, and had a focus on its CTF competition since 2011. I participated in many clans, but I've settled with the Incredible clan for a good while now. I've got a pretty decent record in scrims and tournaments, namely the last International Doom League season which featured a prize pool. I played a lot in pretty much every current multiplayer port.


    Nowadays, even though I play the usual competitive stuff occasionally, I spend most of the time playing GZDoom, either trying new mods or doing some runs on Doom RL Arsenal with DoomRPG. In fact, just last night I completed Doom: The Golden Souls, which is a GZDoom mod that follows a Super Mario-like gameplay design, and it was honestly excellent! Can't wait to play the sequel when it comes out.


    Anywho, what's up?

    4. Zakken


      Honestly wasn't expecting this many replies!! I appreciate all of the greetings! I hope to establish myself and enjoy my stay here.


      @Doomkid FFA is probably my least favourite gamemode, compared to TDM and CTF, but I might consider it. I'm on the usual IRC channels if you wanna hit me up!
