Well, I prevent infighting by giving them species..
(Also, The link I gave has a link to a previous version where you CAN pick if, and how much each individual monster appears in the maps.)
Each dimensional monsters has it's own respective species..
Hyper, tough, pain, death, glitch, and chrono.
One dimensional species will tend to fight with other dimensions,
true, but given the extent of the power of these varieties of
monsters, infighting may INCREASE the difficulty for you..
Especially if.. Say.. A Glitch elemental got caught in a fight
with a pain baron.. You would have a heck of a time cleaning
up their mess if you didn't break up the fight fast.
Not to mention, the ultimate boss of the wad, the dimensional
master, has only one true weakness, and that is infighting..
If you make him aim his "final ball" attack at you through a
tough monster of any type, it will reflect the ball back at him,
dealing massive damage, or more likely, killing him.. If there's not
one around, you can try to survive until he whips up some tough
souls, then try to get him to aim a shot through them..
For a person who isn't a natural/hardcore gamer, this may seem extremely tedious or close to impossible..
The guy has 50000 health.. Anyone familiar with doom will instantly recognize, that's a SH*T-TON of health.
I'm not trying to brag, but for anyone who claims the dimensional master is OP.. I can honestly say I've literally killed dozens of them, in a single oblige map.. And it didn't take me more than 10 minutes to kill each one.
Have you ever watched some dude do a review for a game that's normally really easy, but the dude is losing all the time, and you're thinking "Wow, how can anyone be that bad?".. That's how I feel when I used to hear people like chris complain about too many chaingunners pinning him in the spawn room in oblige sometimes..
If you're like me and you've literally gotten tired of killing your 900th cyberdemon with a supershotgun, you might understand where I'm coming from. (coopbuildm ftw)
But on the other side of the argument, the person might be thinking "Wow, I wonder how many hours that person wasted not having a life to get that skilled? And for what? So he can brag on the internet?"
The way I see it, we're all a pro on something, and a noob on something else.. It just depends on what we like to do.
Going to sleep now, so probably won't make any instant-responces till 4 pm, or later.. Not sure what I was thinking expecting a lot of feedback in the wee hours of the night anyway. X D
