[E/83%/YAVP] My first no-save run! Woot!
« on: October 02, 2009, 17:52 »

Remeber my post titled "Finest Hour"? It has been surpassed by this run, where I would have been able to kill JC, had he not gone insane with the Hell Barons... When I finally got it, the Anti-Freak Jackal was key due to knockback, although the blast radius made it a little tougher. I bet JC would have gone down if I had the Trigun or GCB in addition to the AFJ...

-- General ---------------------------------------------------

 Before him 28 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 19 of those were killed.
 1 didn't read the thermonuclear bomb manual.
 And 1 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 Some rumours though, say that the Cyberdemon was killed already!
 Is he immortal? 7 souls claim to have killed him...
 1 sacrificed itself for the good of mankind.
 6 killed the bastard and survived.

...Can I get a little kudos? I'm very proud of this run...

Unless you're testing, scumming is not the way to go.

Gratz on the win, as well :P

Well, I knew that in theory, but in practice...

You're right though. It's also a lesson that on easy, go for the pistol build, and you'll do alright.

I must admit though, that I have been savescumming to rank up (I haven't tried AoD&D yet, but I will be sure to, and I must thank you for paying tribute), although I think I don't have to now because I have all of the challenges and N! mode.

I can't wait for 0.9.9. (or is it 0.9.9.9? I forget) I eagerly await the new release, and hope that I have donated by the time you start work on 1.0.0 so I can get into the beta.

One thing though...If you look through my mortem folder, theres a lot of AoB's that have died on dlvl2. What will you be doing to adress this? reprimand the former humans? make a new melee weapon? what?

Brute gives a Melee accuracy bonus as well as a damage bonus. Combat knife gives +1 accuracy and can be thrown. Melee weapons have one mod slot.

Do you approve of SoL not giving an armour bonus? :D

I'll get back to you on that as soon as I can actually get the damn thing. I literally never play melee out side of AoB

While you can in 9.8.10, do a Melee run in ITYTD, using your Pistols/Shotguns for Backup until the Chained Court, and as a secondary weapon then. Do the Arena and take a RL for the Wall. This is just to get a taste of Lategame Melee ;)

Funny thing about blast radiuses smaller than a standard rocket blast: the damage is wildly unpredictable. I once hacked in a 99d1 pistol with a blast radius of 0. Shoulda killed stuff in one shot. Never actually killed stuff, made a hella knockback. Was really only good for breaking walls.
