I'm always curious about what difficulties most folks play for DoomRL these days.  Partly to satisfy my curiousity, and partly to get more feedback for Kornel, here's a simple vote.

This will run for 30 days, so start voting now.  ^_^

Playing on UV.

It fits best for training.
I see HMP as normal and UV as hard.

It took me quite some time to get there b UV is my standard difficulty now... N! gets my ass kicked for now, though I remmeber playing HMP and thinking UV is impossible so I have faith that Ill move up sometime soon.

Still trying to get the hang of HMP... especially the startup is a real pain, since I get hit a lot and can only stand and watch as the formers use up the precious medkits. Maybe I should just not mind and press on anyway, but still...

Oh, and for some reason, every single time I try a melee game on HMP, the first thing I encounter on dlev2 is a bloody demon. No fun.

You gota run and slam a door in his face. But yeah, it's tough dealing with them. Lucky berserker packs are best way to go, but can't be relied on unfortunately.

HMP at present. I've been away from DoomRL for a while, but I intend to break into/through UV when I start again.

Gravitating between HNTR and UV, trying to be able to beat UV more reliably as I am now, where I can only beat it on AoMC and even then only rarely.

Whenever I still play I play N! since there's not really much that's fun to achieve on UV anymore (AoHu, Ao100 (can't bother), AoP.)

UV ao100 is just about the only thing i play on any more save for N! AoOC when I feel like getting my ass kicked.

I suck, so when I play I still go back and forth between HNTR and HMP.

Not anymore. :P

I don't play often enough anymore to achieve any sort of success on other difficulties.

Usually, when I get the feel of the game, I try to play everything on ultra -violence. I've got enough of my own nightmares, so I don't play on that difficulty

I play mostly on HTNR because most of the time I'm playing to get the remaining badges.  As I still have a lot of Silver and Gold badges missing HNTR offers the best odds to get them.

If I happen to be playing just for fun then I may take HMP but UV is still too hard for me.
