Given how your ideas have gone over, you might want to call it "badband" instead, as in "You guys thought these ideas were bad, but now see how they play and I'll prove you wrong."

I don't need to fight to prove I'm right.

I don't believe so. I'll be looking forward to it - I think many of your ideas are interesting, I mainly disagree with your belief that they're inevitable

Only inevitable in the Aristotlean sense that 'good' is that toward which all things aim.

I don't know if that holds true for Angband variants. People play for different reasons. I understand my own desires very well, and optimize my variant to satisfy them as well as possible. Looking at the computer games nowadays, satisfying my kind of gamers is a pretty niche market...

There are probably more than one "perfect" roguelikes in the Platonic world of ideas.

I don't really understand, deep down on the emotional level, what draws people to Angband. Therefore I probably couldn't design a better Angband.

Then I think what you're aiming for is, more technically, EudaemonisticBand.

Plato lists four 'cardinal virtues' that are necessary for attaining this 'goodness' (or eudaemonia) and I would definitely play a variant where the four stats are:

WISdom
COUrage
MODeration
and
JUStice!
