How long has this wad been in development?
Ever since I got done with Jason's Hell. Originally this was going to be a big update for the Doomguy's Warzone reboot which was released two years ago. Because of the amount of new ideas I came up with such as portable skies, improved blood effects, dynamic lights, new game modes, etc. It was around October of 2013 I decided to just call this Doomguy's Warzone Platinum Edition. I've been working on this for over a year now and with how much I get done on a weekly basis, this will probably take two years at the most before I can say I'm done with it.
What is this wad rated?
Adults only pretty much because of the nudity and very strong language, plus this wad also has controversy inside of it like the other editions of Doomguy's Warzone before this. Basically, it's for mature audiences only. Just for the hell of it, I rated this wad E for epic and had an parental advisory label on it. The parental advisory label was meant to serious, telling people that the wad actually had explicit content and the epic rating was because the wad was also epic. I have retired the rating and advisory label that it usually there on the titlepic because kids are still going to download it anyways. Note to parents: It's not my job to watching over your kids when you should be doing a better job supervising what they do on the internet.
What is the target audience for this wad?
Myself and the small fanbase that apparently enjoys my wads. I'm not making this to appeal to the politically correct fags (Doom Community) who get offended by swearing or god forbid titties. The people who are around my age who get offended by that stuff are probably virgins anyways.
When is this wad going to come out?
The goal was to release it in 2014, but because of my health problems I dealt with early on this year among other factors, it probably won't come out until 2015 at the latest. Most weeks I get some stuff done, some weeks I get alot done. There's still lots left to do before I can say I'm done with it. Perfection is the main goal of this project and you can't rush it. I'll try to get more done on a weekly basis, but I can't promise that either. If I release it too soon, then the fans will be dissapointed by the obvious lack of polish and features that I promised them. Trust me it will live up to all of the hype I'm currently giving this wad.
Is this Wad going to be Uploaded to idgames?
I don't plan on uploading on there because it would probably be rejected because of some of the content I have in this wad. The main goal of this wad is perfection and in order for me to achieve that, I have to not be held back by such limitations that are presented in the archive rules.
Will there be different versions of Platinum Edition just like there were for Gold Edition?
I'm thinking about a software version for those who can't play it on their older computers because I want as many people to enjoy it as possible.
What new features are you talking about?
Improved blood effects, dynamic lights, decals, terrain effects, portable skies, bullet and shell casings, new game modes, a generation of new enemies, new weapons, some new items, new player classes, and much more including hidden content that is yet to be discovered.
Will Platinum Edition come with levels just like Gold Edition?
I have no plans on including a storyline with this edition since this is supposed to be a gameplay wad, not an episode wad. I have at least included an intro map featuring the main characters of the Warzone series. If I wanted to do a sequel to the Gold storyline, it would be in a separate wad independent of it actually needing Doomguy's Warzone in order for to function properly meaning I would add Warzone resources to the mapset instead.
How many new game modes will this wad have?
I have no idea. I do however plan on bringing back Racial and Sexual Equality. Some of the new game modes include, School Nightmare, Platinum Celebrity Nightmare, Entire Roster Challenge, a custom war feature that allows you to crate you own custom war with various possibilities.
How many portable skies will this have?
Around nine unless I decide to add more.
How many player classes will we see in Platinum Edition?
Five different classes that includes the standard player class from Doomguy's Warzone (2012) and Da Big D 0 G, plus three more that you will have to wait and see until this wad comes out.
What would Doomguy's Warzone be like if you had listened to your critics?
If I had listened to my critics, then Doomguy's Warzone would be a generic randomizer and who wants another randomizer anyways? They wanted me to take out the whoopee cushions, weightlifters, tourette's guys, etc. you know things that made Doomguy's Warzone what it is today. It's like if Terry kept on making generic wads instead of him coming up with this genre of Terrywads, then nobody would know who he is today. It's because of this he has created a legacy of where a small group of mappers do the same thing he does. To put simplify it, if these certain people didn't come up with revolutionary ideas, then they would be doing generic things, in my case, doing generic gameplay wads. See I don't follow treads, instead I create them and am confident that Doomguy's Warzone Platinum Edition is another revolutionary wad that will once again create more history within the Doom community despite on how much I don't like the community.
What has the reception been like with Warzone series in General?
Mostly poor reception throughout the entire Doom community, except for my fans who seem to think that this is the one of greatest wad series according to them.
What are the names of some of the enemies we will encounter in Platinum Edition?
I haven't gotten around to adding most of the Platinum roster for some strange reason. Some of the new enemies that I got so far are: Pyro Succubus and Jason from Jason's Hell with more monsters from Gold Edition coming back in Platinum Edition. I will update this FAQ when I add more enemies into this wad.
How large do expect the roster to be this time around?
Out of all of the editions of Doomguy's Warzone, probably the third biggest, if not the second biggest because of the enemies I will be adding to this roster. Personally I prefer a good sized roster that is of quality rather than, a super huge roster that has realm667 monsters and boring jokewad enemies. I want to continue the quality direction that was started in the Doomguy's Warzone reboot than continue on in the previous direction of no quality control and adding monsters just for the sake of it.
What are the names of some of the new weapons?
We got the energy reactor cannon which has the ability to disintegrate enemies, a new improved rifle that replaces the old one, and a rocket launcher that also fire grenades when pressing the secondary fire key. There's also some more weapons coming back from Gold Edition that will be here such as the Cheesefist for instance. I have retired more weapons because they aren't needed like for example, the dual pistols, old rocket launcher, and grenade launcher just to name a few of the retired weapons.
Anything about the new items you would like to talk about?
No, not really since there aren't many new items you will just have to wait and find out when Platinum Edition is released.
What is the theme song for this Edition?
I know what it is and believe it's a good one. This song fits perfectly with Doomguy's Warzone Platinum Edition. I'll wait until it comes out to reveal the song, when it's close, or you will have to download it to find out for yourself.
Do you expect Doomguy's Warzone Platinum Edition to win a Cacoward?
Are you kidding me? What makes you think this will ever win one, even receive a sidebar mention? Doomguy's Warzone Gold Edition back in 2011 had numerous nominations for the Worst Wad cacoward, since that year the worst wad award was retired (I'm guessing I was the one responsible for it being retired in the first place). Even the following year, both myself and the Warzone reboot had nominations for the Worst Wad award. The best I've done as far as the cacowards are concerned, was the first Doomguy's Warzone being mentioned as the worst of randomizer wads.
What do you consider as your most successful edition of Doomguy's Warzone?
Easily Gold Edition because that's the wad that made me into a the legend that I am today. Even before I released it, I just knew it was going to legendary because back then in 2011, there was nothing else like it. It's got hundreds of downloads including a torrent of the original version because that guy that created the torrent thought the download link was no longer working.
