Which do you think is the best version of Angband?
 
There's been ongoing discussion about directions for some time now. Let's get some data.

Wow, metacriticism.

Everyone: If I didn't include your favourite version, please write in, as will_asher has done.

For more information than you need (much of it correct) about Angband and variant version history, see this page.

That's a very difficult question. I would vote for Frog-knows if it had current vanilla macros and better targeting. However it has severely worse UI than current vanilla has.

2.8.3 is the one I remember playing a lot. Once played game thru with one sitting playing that. But it doesn't have some of the more interesting vaults for example.

2.9.x is pretty much same as 2.8.3, I don't recall what prompted the version change.

Was it resistance scheme change? Chaos -> Nether being most destructive? No more confusion prevention from Chaos? I hated that.

3.0.x is where JLE changes came in. That made game easier. I enjoyed some of the monsters, but didn't like the new items that much (except the few improved amulets, though at the long run Trickery has proven to be too powerful)

3.1 squelch. I like.

3.2 -> 3.3 ID by use, gain one lose one potions, lots of tweaks in rarities. Not yet what I hope it should be. Easiest versions this far.

So, every version has something improved, but also something that did go wrong. I think I vote for 2.8.3. It isn't perfect, but there is nothing really wrong in it either.

It seems like Trickery should lose either speed or Rpois?

To put it simple, yes. Which one is the tough question.

For actual information about what changed in each version, people might like to go here instead.

I vote for 2.9.6

3.0.9b was the first version I played, and it probably had the best difficulty level, although the UI has been improved so much since then that it's hard to vote for it unreservedly.
