Wow. So are the HP on the winners. 684HP, and that is after killing M for CL 38.

The comp wins are getting into epic territory, previously seen only in Cliff Stamp's NPP win (small levels, randarts.)

Wow. It just may mean the new branch needs rebalancing...

I'm putting it down to that, plus current randarts are OP, plus connected stairs, plus play with all runes/flavors known - have I missed anything?

The other thing to remember is that there are two main parts to the plan for 4.2, and the other one is a redo of the monster list

Given that it's almost time for the Tour de France...

These "Lance Armstrong" turncounts are outrageous. Is this something that WADA needs to look into?

At this point I don't think the feature branch is to blame for any of this, and not even the randarts. As I understand it new rogue probably isn't even as strong as standard rogue (although the lack of exp penalty might be an advantage).

At this point I believe we have to blame the players

All you comp types: why not try this with connected stairs and skip-level 5 or so? The rules dont forbis it. Then you don't need to worry a out ?DD and finding stairs so much. (Although that first 25 DL plunge at cl 3 or so would turn you into a thrall character.)

skip-level 5
skip_level is not configurable on the "birth" menu, and surely editing constants.txt is out of bounds: there's plenty of stuff in there that would significantly change the character of the game if unlimited edits were allowed.

@bron--good point. I'd forgotten it wasn't really a game parameter.
