  1. Counter Strike wasn't "finished" when it became one of the most played internet games either and nobody can argue its importance to genre
  2. Halo, for basically taking multiplayer FPS to the "mainstream", opening the door for Call of Duty/Battlefield/etc
  3. Giants, dragons, undead ice people, talking trees, becoming other people by cutting off their faces, transferring consciousness to giant wolves, crows, and other people, fire invulnerability, vagina demons, zombie guards
  4. Yea, I'll leave it up a little while longer. I'm going to send anything that came after the funeral out sometime next week. All funds raised so far went toward Aaron's funeral services. We have some nice pictures from the day that I'd like to share, but I'm currently in the middle of a move so I'll try to get them up as soon as I can.
  5. Aaron's death has been officially ruled accidental.
  6. https://www.floralhaven.com/obits/paul-aaron-emge/ Obituary and information on services
  7. I've been in touch with his family, as well as a few others. A lot of us have also started a donation drive to help his family through this time - fortunately we've already raised over $500. More information regarding donations and his family in this post: http://doomleague.org/forums/index.php/topic,915.0.html
  8. For those that don't know, Aaron "DemonSphere" Emge passed away yesterday morning. DemonSphere was arguably the best 1v1 Doom player on the planet in the past couple years, placed 3rd in the Quakecon Doom 2 tournament years ago, and has a number of other accomplishments. Above all of this, he was a really great kid and he is going to be sorely missed. Below is the cross posted announcement from the WDL forums: It is with much regret and sadness that I have to report that a pillar of our community, Aaron "DemonSphere" Emge, passed away early on the morning of September 24th, 2017. In our community, Aaron excelled at everything he attempted. He was an excellent player, a great teammate, and a beloved captain. Above all of this, he was a true friend to many of us and his absence will resonate with us for eternity. May he rest in peace. For anyone struggling with depression, know that you are loved - by your family and friends. Please never give up - this is a mistake that you won't have an opportunity to regret. In the United States, there is a free suicide prevention line at 1-800-273-8255. When more details become available regarding services, this post will be updated.
  9. The game owns. The remixed old zones are sick, the new zones are sick, the music is sick. Just top to bottom awesome.
  10. When does Alfonso play against the WDL Radio hosts? :)
  11. I want to chime in and say that I think the above approaches, when there are two "same tier" players, can have different outcomes on different maps. A player who is a monster on judas and d5m7, thanks to their aim and quick reflexes, might not do as well on a map like d5m1, map01, or pobla8 where another player can slow them down and control the flow of the game instead of letting it turn into a spawn frag festival. Nowadays they typically do, but even the sharpest "skill" players have been upset once they are forced to play at a slower pace.
  12. The following is a list of multiplayer related Discord channels. If you know of other channels, please post them and they will be added to the OP. Channels are "official" unless otherwise specified: Engine Centric Channels Odamex (Unofficial) ZDaemon (Unofficial) ZDoom Community Channels The Sentinel's Playground UniDoom World Doom League (WDL/IDL)
  13. Cool, good luck
  14. Doom isn't metal and it never was - it's blues. The majority of songs in the Doom soundtracks are blues.
