Just for information.
2 counters - level kills and total kills

Percentages or raw figures? The mortem contains both, and I think that, unless you're aiming for a specific target to increase your rank, only the kill-rate (%) is relevant. And only if you're interested in a figure that is not 100%, since the level name/number goes from red text to blue text when the last monster is killed.

What exactly would you want to see?

Ok, but to what use? Once you complete the run, you'll have all the figures you could possibly want. What would be the added value?

Personal stats of the run, like original Doom "Frags" count.

There was an in-game count? Wow it's been too long :S

Personally, I don't see the added value for this, but others might...

Not in singleplayer, only multiplayer, but...

May use in new challenge mode - like Angel of 1000000 Souls - To win you must kill 1000000 enemies per game or something like that.

Well, too easy and too tedious. MVm+Pain elemental = endless souls.

Regardless, kill count would be great for those badges that require something% of kills.

Also, it would be nice to have something akin to the Doom end level screen.

This has already been added in the repo build on the player info screen and, yes, they are the "raw figures".

But when Info Screen is open, game is blocked. It's not very convenient.

I worded this incorrectly: by "player info screen" I meant the one you can access by pressing the "@" button during a game. Here, you'll be able to find # of enemies killed, total enemy count, as well as killing spree/record (# of enemies killed without taking damage in between). This is separate from the player info found in the main menu which, while having all of the kill counts, isn't representative of a particular game, much less a game in which you're currently engaged.

If for some reason this is STILL too inconvenient for you, Kornel has plans for an altogether expanded HUD: it will possibly allow for a level of customization so you can put some desired stats on it.

I mean - this information may be in HUD, and player don't waste time to use "Info Screen" to view kill count.
Personally, I used the feature to view "Info Screen" only twice all-time.

It will be Great!

What player is going to want to know exactly how many monsters he's killed at all times?

It takes less than a second to hit '@' and that screen is chock-full of useful information... in the current release. Next version will make it even better.

I see no reason to have this info on the HUD.
As Game Hunter says: this info is already available via another screen in the game.
