After each successful run on R&D, you may choose to give the Corp a Doom counter instead of accessing cards from R&D. Each Doom counter forces the Corp to roll a die whenever it installs a card. On a 6, the card is trashed after it is installed, and the Corp removes a Doom counter.

The Corp may remove all Virus counters at any time, but must then forgo its next three actions.

If you make a successful run on R&D using Demolition Run, you may not give a Doom counter AND trash the rezzed ice on the fort; you must do one or the other. JD Wiker

If you have more than one "you may do A instead of B," then you can do as many or as few A's as you like whenever B would have happened. However, if B never would have happened, then you can't do any of the A's. Demolition Run means that you never would have accessed cards, so you can't use Armageddon, or related effects.

Each time you would access cards, you can use as many Armageddons as you like. Tom Wylie via JD Wiker

You can give the Corp a Doom counter even if the number of cards you would have accessed has been reduced to zero or less. Tom Wylie via JD Wiker

Each time the Corp installs a card, each counter produces a separate effect, but the Corp must roll dice equal to the number of Doom counters in play. If any 6s are rolled, the card is trashed. For each 6 rolled, the Corp removes a Doom counter. This means that more than one Doom counter could be removed with a single installation. Tom Wylie via JD Wiker

Trivia

The artwork is an imitation of the popular shooter game DOOM from the 1990ies. Doom is a synonym of Armageddon and the flavour text also harbors the term 'Deathmatch' which refers to a mode of the game, and the refernce to '2020' could be linked to the game 'Cyberpunk 2020' upon which Netrunner is based.
