    More Memorable Maps

    @Nefelibeta Have to quote the author :p Oh man, can't wait for this. To me, the biggest one is "Back to Saturn X E2M26" because it kinda marks the beginning of my playtesting career, and playtesting for Xaser is never a wrong thing :P Some other maps are: Abandon Map10: Yeah, I stole this from Vile's list. It's funny that I was at the beginning of this map at the end of my play session, so I just somehow decided to IDDT and look at the automap and I saw all those green triangles. Stupidly, I thought those are clips... and I was really wondering why this map gives me so many bullets. Moonlight Map01: Also stole this from Vile's list. As a puzzle solving and escape room enthusiastic, this map definitely fills my need in Doom. Syringe Map06: Best textures all around. Have to check out those secret areas :P Orange is True Love Map01: You gotta love that lovely BFG. NoYe Map35: You never know the length of the map is 100% just about right before you jumped into the lava.

    [FINAL] Literalism (Release Thread)

    Played Map06. Not a fan that the Red Key Switch seems to lead you to the start to create confusion. It's a pretty great map, although I would appreciate more if you're forced to the fight the Cyber on the thin ledges without giving you the option to telefrag him.

    What makes a good player good?

    The "casual" is basically not speedrunners, and it doesn't mean anything negative with it as not everybody has the time to play a game seriously enough to be a speedrunner heh. Yeah, I guess, but sometimes it's hard to really separate these. Like 2-shot Cyber seems like a skill that's popular enough that a good enough casual player should know.

    What makes a good player good?

    There're many different angles for this. It's not discussed mostly, but good casual players and good speedrunners have really different skill sets. However, they like to be compared together, and also in speedrunners, people also like to compare different players without considering the main category they run. Casually, you have good reflex to deal with weird situation, or you can take on a map with higher difficulty with good strategies, or even finish them without saving etc. will definitely be a good player. Also, you have basic understanding of enemy AIs and weird quirks in Doom etc. For speedrunners, there are a lot more. Planning your route is one important skill, and execution is a bit of higher level from casual good players, they need to be fluent and precise, and sometimes you have to take risk to improve your time, so you would go for a harder execution for shorter time. Then for categories, some skills are used interchangeably, but they have different emphasis. Like movement is more important in NoMo, UV Speed; Accuracy and efficient weapon usage are more important in UV Max; Punching skill is more important in Tyson (:P), etc. Mostly, speedrunners are a strict sub-set of good casual players. I'm not a good casual player, so I can't be a speedrunner according to above, so I'm a slowwalker :P

    Scythe *Sigh* Syke!

    Nobody should trust someone putting Eternal Doom before Doom Eternal :P But I guess this tells me you have super good movement. I couldn't beat Map28 from time to time, heh.

    Nerfed Cyberdemon is a surprising thing where it's so useful and yet simple, but nobody tried it out before Magnolia.
