I certainly have too. Also in later games when trying to get even, equipped with pStun I've died as a result of nastier hounds that were summoned.
Of all monsters in the game, no other gives me the same satisfaction as when killing a GMM. You just have to choose when it is a (somewhat) good idea and when not (default).

Of the monsters I've killed least in the game, GMMs are probably the highest up there relative to how low they spawn. I think only the beholder hive mother competes with it. Other later monsters I avoid are Omarax, Tarrasque, Pit Fiends, Greater Balrogs (I hate charge draining)

Congrats to clouded, who stomped comp 154 early and was never dethroned.

To anyone who has comments for fizzix re: FizzixBand, speak up! I'm sure he and the other devs would appreciate the feedback.

Sorry for my ignorance, but are there direct links to (previous) competitions?

There is always a link in the bottom named "previous competitions".

I generally take them on when I have high AC, and speed > 20. I have actually gone from fine to Heavy stun in one turn though, so I always watch the screen for status updates like a hawk.
