The Quake Ironman League #3 - The Punishment Due

Q1 Ironman League

What is the Quake Ironman League?

In the spirit of the DWIronman League, the Quake Ironman League is a biweekly session that has participants play a provided map, episode or mod blind to see who can survive! Rules are at the bottom of the post.

This time you all will be dying to...

The Punishment Due, a Copper episode by Juzley, with a guest map from yours truly. Featuring large, challenging levels full of inventive encounters, overlapping routing and traps galore, this is the perfect kind of episode for ironman struggles. So prepare to die... (and to sustain psychic damage from all of the puns)

Maps
    start.bsp - Start for Start's Sake (juzley)
    pun1.bsp - Azure Annoyance (juzley)
    pun2.bsp - Let Them Eat Quake (fairweather/juzley)
    pun3.bsp- Tour de Vores (juzley)
    pun4.bsp - With Fiends Like These (juzley)
    pun5.bsp - Ogre and Out (juzley)

Difficulty: Hard (Skill 2)
File(s): [pun.zip]
Mod: Copper (Included)
Note: This map requires an engine port with increased limits.
Commands: The command "game pun; skill 2" will switch you to the pun episode directory and select the Hard skill, and "record qil3_playername pun1" will begin your attempt.

Rules
  • To compete, you must play the given map/mod/mapset once on the given difficulty setting and record a demo of your playthrough to submit to this thread.

  • Playthroughs must be (at least mostly) blind. You are not permitted to practice or otherwise study the map before attempts are made.

  • Demo files must be compatible with Quakespasm Spiked source port. (Protocol 15, 666, or FTE999)

  • No cheat codes or other gameplay hacks may be used.

  • No mods or files other than those provided may be used.

  • If the recording of your run is interrupted due to technical difficulties, you are not permitted a second attempt. Any surviving recording may be submitted.

  • You do not have to play the secret levels in order to register a complete run. However, a player who finishes the run having completed more secret levels than their competitors will rank higher than them.

Completed but got very lost on map 4. Decided to solve the problem with some movement skills. Disclaimer about 5th map is that i tested early version of it before. This was a fun adventure regardless.

Good stuff Mazu! :)

Also to note, I'm changing how the ranks work just for simplicity. Here's what I look for in order.
Levels completed > Kills > Secrets > Time taken > How much I personally like the person's avatar > Cell ammo they have when they're done (Lower is better)

Map 1 lulled me into a false sense of complacency, map 2 suddenly went from 0 to 100 in a couple seconds and that was the end of me. :(

I was so happy with how well I was playing and then died to a shambler halfway through map 2 after making 3-ish stupid mistakes in a row.

Btw, nice new ranking criteria. I think I'm covered in case I get the same maps, kills, and secrets as someone else.

Amazing episode, had a really great time playing it. The slime/button pressy part in map2 was really fun.
The entire episode was great. Died in map 4! gw!

Re: The Quake Ironman League #3 - The Punishment Due

That was really, really fun! Survived but the last map was very scary in places. I had some navigation issues in map4 and had to do a bit of cheeky sequence breaking. I can see from the comments that mazu had a similar problem so i'm going to assume it was the same obstacle.

I'm really sorry I couldn't stream it, but my only internet is 4g and i've been dropping a lot of packets this last week. That would be tolerable in itself, but it freaks out OBS and tends to cause my entire computer to lock up and stutter, which is not good for an ironman thing. I made a local recording and will put on youtube instead.

Re: The Quake Ironman League #3 - The Punishment Due

i've never tried playing ironman before (and don't play a lot of quake) but a friend told me to. i didn't survive very long, but i enjoyed myself!

the end (?) of the second map really made me panic and that is how i met a miserable end face down in the smelly water. the quad room made me sweat too!

Haha, that one's my doing... I'm so sorry! Caught out a lot of people, it's either that or the finale map that rinses people, hope to see you for some more Ironman fun in the future :)

Re: The Quake Ironman League #3 - The Punishment Due

First ironman I've ever done, that was mega fun!

Got my ass blasted by an enforcer, panicking on the platforms with the slime and the shamblers and all the other things happening on the 2nd map.

The encounters in these maps are so difficult, but damn do you feel awesome after you finish them hahaha.

Re: The Quake Ironman League #3 - The Punishment Due

This is my first ironman AND my first day on the forums, too! I had a lot of fun with this one, even though I died like a tard to a shambler on map4. The encounters are all really well done and I liked the end of map3 especially because of it. Hope to do more of these in the future!

Welcome! Always great to see fresh faces, especially ones who hold their own on a pack like this. Enjoy your that score.

I'll have to watch this one back on stream later, I could see the... body(?) language in your view when you got close to death, I could just imagine the screaming >:D

Thanks for playing! Sorry for the fidget spinner room... that seems to be the end of a lot of people, big spike!
