Hello yet again my fellow fraggers.
The 20th anniversary of DWANGO is approaching quickly! If you love to frag your buddies over ZDaemon, just remember, this is the history of our addiction!
When Bob Huntley and Kee Kimbrell pitched the DWANGO idea to id Software, John Carmack and the others were largely uninterested, but the duo found support in John Romero, the godfather of deathmatching!
Remember, this was a time before the internet had really caught on. Doomers had to dial long distance to Houston, TX - Despite this, DWANGO was wildly popular, and the creators reaped a well deserved profit from the subscription fees. By early 1995, over nine thousand subscribers were paying $8.95 a month, some calling from as far as Italy and Australia! It warms my heart to know Aussies have been fragging since the olden days.
The official anniversary date is December 11th, 2014 - I know I'm early, but hell, why not get our celebratory frags in now! To honor the event, I've compiled some of the best DM maps from 1994-1998, which was Dwango's full lifespan.
The main difference between this and the classic DWANGO wads is that every author is actually going to recieve credit
