    The DWIronman League dies to: Double Impact

    You're not officially late until after @Alfonzo updates the leaderboard (wink, wink, nudge, nudge).

    What kinds of things need improvement in Doom?

    ^ You make some good points. I'll concede.

    What kinds of things need improvement in Doom?

    I think the Doom 1 roster generally needs more variety. There are hitscanners, and things-like-imps that shoot fireballs straight at you. Barons don't need to exist, IMO. (I know, I know... here comes the "doors with health" cavalry.) Cacos are at least interesting because they can traverse certain types of obstacles (fly over walls, cross chasms, etc.). The Doom 2 roster is great, but could have come with more boss monsters -- something at least as dangerous as a cyberdemon, but can't be 2-shot with a BFG. (NOTE: I'm not saying the cyber should be replaced... rather, we could use another tier of monster above him.) As for weapons and ammo types, I would say the chainsaw is kinda lame just because if RNG doesn't favor you things can hit you anyway. Needs better stunlock, or just a better mechanic. I dunno, I'm happy with berserk. I don't like that the pistol becomes obsolete as soon as you find any other weapon at all, but not sure what should be done about it. I also don't like how the plasma gun becomes obsolete once the BFG comes along. Different ammo types for them would be nice. The plasma gun would almost replace the chaingun in that case, though. Also, if the pump shotgun had a smaller spread and a couple more pellets, then it would maybe balance better with SSG. I'm not going to comment on level design. I hated pretty much all the original maps, and the Doom community already knows it's capable of much better. The original Doom shoulda had a story, DLC, lootboxes, achievements, and glory kills.

    Believe it or not, I think this would be an improvement. Part of what makes lost souls so obnoxious is their high HP. I think the splash damage would make them uniquely tactical, especially among the Doom 1 monsters.

    So, what kind of music do you guys like?

    I like classic rock, old rock & roll, rhythm and blues, funk, gospel, boogie, soul, motown... that family of music. I also have some classical and folk music I like. You'd be hard-pressed to find a song produced after 1980 that I like. :-\ And I'm only 27... who woulda thought!

    What difficulty do you play Classic Doom on?

    I think you'll find that most of the active members here have been playing a lot of Doom WADs, a lot harder than Ultimate Doom, for a long time. UD isn't really that hard. There's a grand total of two challenging maps, both in the last episode. :-\

    What are you listening to?

    Just discovered Queen relatively recently -- have this song stuck in my head (and it's welcome to stay as long as it likes!):

    Any good levels with huge open spaces?

    I might drop a mention of the Oku slaughtermap here, but I don't think you wanna play that. (Am I the only person who actually enjoys savescumming my way through that map?)
