Doom Power


Doom Power is the largest unofficial Russian fan website dedicated to the Doom games. The site was founded on March 28, 2002 by MAZter, who still acts as a main administrator. On April 30, 2004 the site moved to its own domain. On January 17, 2009, the Doom Power forum was moved to phpBB.[1]


Doom Power hosts its own forums, a FAQ section, and a file repository. Deathmatch tournaments were also organized in the past. A special section, dedicated to Wolfenstein 3D, is also present.


Doom Power forum has four main sections:

  • "Doom and everything related to it" - the largest section dedicated to everything about classic Doom (mapping, modding, deathmatching etc.);
  • "Other games using id engines" - has subsections for Doom 3, Doom (2016) and Doom Eternal, Quake series, Wolfenstein 3D, Hexen and Heretic and other games;
  • "Empty chatter about everything" - for discussions that does not fit other sections;
  • "Service section" - includes a subsection for posting reviews of WADs uploaded to the site, a subsection for requests and wishes, as well as a subsection for storing outdated topics or topics recognized as flood.

As of July 2024, the forum has over 2,800 registered users and over 139,000 posts. Some older topics have been deleted over time to save server space. They are available in the forum archive.

Community projects[edit]

Several community projects were organised by members of Doom Power. One such project was Freakmapping (called "Tuning Contest" at Doomworld), where participants had to improve a level created by a random level generator - SLIGE and later OBLIGE. There were nine contests held in between 2005 and 2021. Other projects include regular speedmapping sessions and FDA contests.
