I've won a grand total of 0 times. I think I must be the worst *band player that has played as long as I have (12+ years between V, Ey, and now FA).

Seven, if you count my uber-cheesy Tome victory.

Yeah, beating a variant made me want to jump on to the next one. A checklist, of sorts.

I suppose Vanilla is already included in that count, but Ditchdigger counts as a win in my book.

None, or one if you count Vanilla. I've been more focused on trying to win V with each class than playing variants, but haven't had a serious attempt since my promising Gnome Mage bought the farm a while ago. I also won an early version of the Doom RL, but that's not a *band.

Same here, also.

I think its the thought of starting all the way from the beginning. Beyond this, with replay characters, I have a tendency to try too hard to get to equivalent power/depth as quickly as possible, which often means death by BSV or something.

I've only won Steamband, as a Steammecha Adventurer (kinda hard to lose with that combo). I also almost won again as a British Adventurer, but got slammed with several rockets, courtesy of those replicating rocket-shooting automata, on Fu Manchu's level.

I've been playing Angband and variants for over 10 years, and never gotten much past level 70 or so. Closest I had to a win was a Draconian Chaos Warrior in ZAngband, who got down to about level 80 before "dying" of a corrupted save file.
I've gotten close in ToME as well, but always do something stupid to get myself killed.
Currently I'm back to Angband, trying to win with a Priest. Its still early, but I'm playing cautious. I really want that win now!

I've been playing...off and on maybe 5 years..not sure. I too have yet to beat one. Usually I get an ego and then something shows me just how much of a bad arse I really am.

One time in Tome, during one of my best runs, I thought I would play with a Greater Kracken. I think thats what it was. Yeah, that went well...

This is what keeps me hooked on roguelikes, the difficulty and not really being able to play them carelessly, among other reasons.
