I don't like that apparently firing a shotgun from point-blank range HURTS YOU TOO
The point blank shotgun thing annoyed me too.
I think that got removed by now. At least, 0.18 doesn't have it. Also, as far as I know, this only happened why you were firing at a wall.
Anyway, I did something new (not that I could do it until recently): I actually played Doom online. Or I tried to. First, I joined a Mega Man Deathmatch server, only to realize that it's boring. Then I tried three Cooperative ones, but in two of them, the players seemed to be more interested in shooting each other, after they killed all enemies, than actually finishing the level (seriously, why don't they just play Deathmatch or Last Man Standing?). The third one went pretty well until the connection got interrupted for some reason.
Yeah, it could have gone better, but the last one introduced me to a nice multiplayer wad, called Samsara. Basically, it allows you to play as various protagonists from other FPS (like Heretic or Duke Nukem), with the weapons and gameplay features of their own games. Quite neat.
Generally, there are fewer servers than I expected. I wonder if that's because I only used Doomseeker to search for them.
