I have problems already from dungeon level 3. Brain Ooze with confusion, Animated Daggers, Cobras that spit to make me blind, Skeleton Kobolds that are hardly harmed by swords, Knobblesticks that dodge everything... The early enemies are differentiated and have dangerous skills. They are much more challenging than in Angband. Also they seem to have a better AI for pathfinding.

Actually I think I remember the daggers and cobras from some time long ago. Maybe they were in an old version of Angband, or even in Moria?
Yes, S is harder than V. So is Oangband, on which its combat and monster AI is based. Although we want to make V a little more challenging (mainly in the late game), I don't think we want to go this far.
"3.4 is much better than 3.1, 3.2 or 3.3. It still is easier than 3.0.9, but it is more convenient to play without being ridiculously easy, so it is my new favorite of the versions." - Timo Pietila
