[back to complaining] Yeah, I know this is on Easy and I know Ive being making a fool of myself with the past couple of posts but this was ridiculously easy. As much as I would love to say this is due to some kind of sudden inspiration, it wasnt. I was playing pretty lousy (you can tell from the mortem). It was probably partly due to the fact that it was late and I was tried but also due to the fact that I could easily get away with it.

The thing that I think made it so easy for me was that with Son of a Bitch and Triggerhappy maxed out I could take out anything in 3 bursts. In fact the only worry I had was running out of ammo. Fortunately (:O) I managed to find 3 Arch-Viles in a midst of all sorts of former solders. So ignoring the Arch-Viles I repeatedly killed all the formers over and over as they got resurrected until I was sick to death of ammo*. I never needed more after that.

In my opinion, though, it wasnt the fixed Son of a Bitch that made this game as much of a walkthrough as it was. I blame Triggerhappy. Basically Triggerhappy works as two levels of Son of a Bitch in one level and in conjunction with Son of a Bitch it easily pushes the chaingun in to realms of overpoweredness. [/complaining about balance]
Hence I suggest making Triggerhappy only add one more round on your burst of fire.

Ohh and its my first win on DooMRL :D
Thank you again, Kornel. Ill love to see how I would fare in a shotgun only game :D.

*Side note: Im not sure if this should be a possible tactic or a scum but every time I killed a former captain they dropped one more pack of ammo and a fully loaded chaingun. I imagine if I wasnt as invincible as I was it might be a problem taking damage from the other two Arch-Viles as I kept on killing the same poor former captain but I just dont know. 

P.S. Ive noticed what I think is a typo in the help/getting started page: or tell you that youre out of ammo (poor sob!). I assume that was meant to be sod? Also it would be nice if that page would be updated to explain the new tactics system.

I want my games for entertainment and escapism, not ethics education, thank you very much.
