Good times... I can't believe this place has become a ghost town. So many CTF memories from the 2004-2008 era. I just came back after a decade of being away, and only a few people are online tonight.

Aye, it's a bit sad, but always thankful for the memories and the people that helped make them!

This place will always hold a special place in my heart and there's a handful of friends that meant more to me than I think they will ever know. ❤️

People's habits and likes change over time. Back then, CTF was "the thing" around here, now Survival seems to be much more popular!
With mods like Brutal Doom, speedrunning events like GDQ, newer Doom games, the franchise is thriving! ZDaemon is still going strong, aims to provide a modern experience of classic Doom and does it remarkably well!

2004-2008 was definitely the "Golden Age" for FFA, CTF, and especially clan activity. The start of international leagues for CTF and Duel kind of took the top talent away from public games; but a lot of us are still around and active Smile

I still play and make maps that work on ALL ports. A few months ago I finished a new CTF map pack and the testing sessions for that reminded me of those good ol' times (I'm talking 8v8 with lots of spectators for a couple hours at a time).

Maybe a CTF tourney/league of some kind would infuse some life? I've always enjoyed ZDaemon as part of a complete classic Doom regimen, so it's sad to see the activity dwindle :/

Bits and pieces are in-motion in the background.

There are plans for future tournaments to go ahead, once the new functionality has been completed.

Otherwise there is now more linkage between tournaments and participants (or as much as possible given the time span):

Said tournament participation will now display on your player profile on the stats site.
