Doom Is Dead? Podcast - #13 Dsparil (Doom 2 Pro)
Dsparil is one of Doom multiplayer’s fiercest competitors who also just so happens to be one of the friendliest guys around. Dsparil is widely regarded by his peers as one of the strongest players in the game right now. He's been an active participant in several seasons of the World Doom League and the Doom Masters League, establishing himself as a menace throughout the regular season and the playoffs. He also performed strongly in both Take The Crown events in 2020 - winning the second qualifier of the duel event and placing in the Top 8 of the FFA event. Dsparil is also a well-established figure of the Jumpmaze scene, a racing mod which focuses on pure movement speed and skill. From there it was only a small leap to the world of speedrunning, where he's been quickly building a reputation for himself in recent times. As of today, he holds several episode run records for Ultimate Doom. // Dsparil WDL Record: https://doomleague.org/players/?player=64 (https://doomleague.org/players/?player=64) // Multiplayer Doom Federation: https://doomfederation.com/podcasts/ (https://doomfederation.com/podcasts/) // In The Keep: https://inthekeep.com/ (https://inthekeep.com/) //
#12 Ralphis (World Doom League)
Ralphis founded the clan Unidoom in the late 90s, which later gained fame through releasing the critically acclaimed UDM series of deathmatch wads. Many of the maps in those wads are considered to be the best DM maps of all time, being played in various tournaments and events. He founded the source port Odamex in late 2005, which has grown into an actively competitive port with ongoing leagues and events, including being selected as the official port of QuakeCon doom tournaments for 3 separate years. As if all of this wasn't enough, he created the International Doom League, known now as the World Doom League. Spanning 25 seasons, the combined heritage of the IDL and WDL make it the largest and longest enduring Doom league in history. // World Doom League: https://doomleague.org/ (https://doomleague.org/) // Odamex: https://odamex.net/ (https://odamex.net/) // Multiplayer Doom Federation: https://doomfederation.com/podcasts/ (https://doomfederation.com/podcasts/) // In The Keep: https://inthekeep.com/ (https://inthekeep.com/) //
#11 Buu342 (DoomWare)
Buu342 has flown under the radar for years while working on several innovative mods and projects, the most well-known of which is DoomWare. Based off the video game series WarioWare, DoomWare is a multiplayer minigame wad that requires players to survive and/or complete the tasks of minigames that are swapped every few seconds. DoomWare was presented with a Multiplayer Award in the 2020 edition of the Cacowards. Buu also recently developed a new game mode entitled Dominatrix, which utilizes ACS to inject control points into your favorite maps for easy access to games like King of The Hill and Double Domination. He is also a council member of the Multiplayer Doom Federation where he is involved in week-to-week event planning. // Buu342: https://github.com/buu342 (https://github.com/buu342) // DoomWare: https://www.doomworld.com/forum/topic/91785-doomware-open-beta/ (https://www.doomworld.com/forum/topic/91785-doomware-open-beta/) // Multiplayer Doom Federation: https://doomfederation.com/podcasts/ (https://doomfederation.com/podcasts/) // In The Keep: https://inthekeep.com/ (https://inthekeep.com/)
