I didn't know that, thank you.

No version of Angband has ever felt easy (let alone "trivially") for me—I have hundreds of dead characters and only 2 winners including this one. But the last half of this run was different. By the time I had all the key resistances, was faster than anything else (base speed was 48 for a while), heroic/legendary stealth, and 0% casting including all the teleport flavors ... it seemed nothing could really hurt me unless I was stupid careless (which I was, several times, but got lucky).

Anyway, turn-based is what I love, but next time, I'll choose the latest dev build and standarts.
