I like 3.2.0. ID by use is great, and it's the last version to still have stat restore potions.

I got hooked during the long reign of 2.8.2 and 2.8.3. i find it ironic that the closest i ever came to a win was in 2.8.2 with a warrior. man that's a lot of character deaths. I like the way things are shaping up with the current development minus the store interface changes =P. I kind of lost interest when there where no more dos releases and the graphical tileset was made the default.

I jumped from Moria to Angband around 2.9.3 and played to 3.0.6, but I'd be hard pressed to tell you any differences I noticed from these versions. I vote 3.0.6 because it has more artifacts than 2.9.3.

As an aside, I stopped keeping up with Vanilla because I actually started to notice visible changes after 3.0.6, and I just assumed since I was on board for 5 or so straight years of mysterious invisible incremental updates that it would never change and assumed updates were for keeping up with operating systems and boring stuff and what-not. It didn't occur to me that it was an ever evolving game.

To mirror some previous comments about npp, I recall after winning 0.4.1 that I thought, "cool, this is what angband would be like if it were to evolve."

One of good old versions is the best. At some point, when bugs were already fixed, but "improvements" had not yet been started.

Thanks for resurrecting this thread - I always intended to check back and see what the final scores were. No surprises that the second and third most popular are Ben's and Robert's last substantive releases. What really surprises me is that anybody at all voted for 3.1.2 or 3.2.0, since they were products of the current devteam and ought to be completely dominated by 3.3.2.

So if you're one of the people who voted for 3.1.2 or 3.2.0, would you mind saying a little about why you didn't vote for 3.3.2? It would be interesting to know what made the difference.

just curious, could you be a bit more precise on the version number?
I play angband since just a few months, so I'm not familiar at all with the "good old times" everybody is talking about

I like 2.7.8 but at the same time it dosent have hardly any note documentation on the items unless you *ID* them, so it is a lot of note taking, and it's extreemly hard, psudo-id isn't as good as in 3.3.2 and it is much slower gameplay advancement, I think the older versions are more of a challenge but they are also slower because of the need to to do a lot of scumming.

I voted for 2.9.3, however 2.8.3 may be actually better.

thanks for the quick answer
i read the changelogs on rephial; although I voted for 3.3.2 (for I played from 3.2.0 on), I can see why you voted that version
