There has been a recent influx of oldschool players who are adamant about playing in a single 80x24 terminal -- can't get combat rolls there.

Also I know some people prefer playing without combat rolls because it does give you some information that the interface probably shouldn't be giving away (e.g. if you're blind or a monster is covered in darkness, you can probably infer what is attacking you based on their damage-die rolls.) I personally like them, but hey.
