 Before him 64 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 54 of those were killed.
 1 of those was killed by something unknown.
 3 didn't read the thermonuclear bomb manual.
 And 5 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 Some rumours though, say that the Cyberdemon was killed already!
 Is he immortal? 1 souls claim to have killed him...
 1 killed the bastard and survived.

--------------------------------------------------------------
I had just unlocked this mode an hour ago (I made a pass at max carnage 1st), and yes this is only my second win (the other was ammochain so nothing special...)

RNG was quite kind, stairs near each other, only 2 arena levels and before the hellgate I got Onyx armor and a power mod 7 spaces away.
I rode the berserk from chained court for 4 levels, and later in hell a pair of inv globes for 3 more.

The hardest part (other than the Mortuary of course) was lvl 3, the stairs were guarded by 4 sergeants and I only had HR-1.  I had to bate them away with some ammo and loop around.

The hellgate was fun, I hit run just before the 1st wave and forgot to close the door behind me. When I hit the 2nd wall some cacodeamon blasts knocked me forward and the bros blasted each other while I ran away.

I only went to the Mortuary because the normal stairs were blocked by an ocean of lava. I thought I was dead but I used a Agility mod on a red armor and dove in. I grabbed a super-charge and ran for the upper-left. I used 3 large med kits and had the armor blown off me but I made it under the cover took the other super-charge and med kit and ran.

Honestly I think this is one of the easiest modes.  The free levels that make it fair make it far easier than any of the other challenges.

Heh gratz on your win! I also find AoPc somewhat easy (you just need to be lucky) - you rather won't clear whole level to find out exit was just next to starting room, but you didn't check it. On later levels you'd be dead.
When did you encounter arena levels? Early or late in game? Because it makes a difference - I'd like to be ganked by some Cacodemon instead of Archvile and Revenant while hugging the wall, lol.
Anyway, try beating it on N under 10 minutes now :)

Congratulations on your first AoPc. Honestly, it probably is one of the easier runs to do, requiring only the sense to avoid enemies and some goodwill from the RNG. Some games will lock you out with demons and lost souls, others throw you a lot of free stairs.  The leveling doesn't help all that much, to be honest, save HR/DM and the first level in Ironman. The rest are pretty much luxury, as far as I care.

You should work on winning the game more, though, even if it's on ITYTD. Getting used to the long haul is important when it becomes a long slog on the harder difficulties.

Anyway, try beating it on N under 10 minutes now :)
Man, don't make me start a laughing fit again. The doubled Berserk Packs and Invulnerability Globes can only help you so much in a time cruncher, when all the enemies are going to throw their projectiles more often.

This is much easier than AoB (it took me quite a few trys to get the lvl 15 for the unlock, is it just me or does berzerker not work right?)
I found the 1st arena early but the second one was deep in hell so I phased. Badass is more important than Ironman if you ask me.  But as I said, this was only my 1st try at AoPc but I'll take my 1st gold badge.

If Berserker procs as the result of killling an enemy, the damage reduction properties are not granted in the berserk state. This is a bug, so it should be cleared up in the next version.

Badass is more important than Ironman if you ask me.  But as I said, this was only my 1st try at AoPc but I'll take my 1st gold badge.
TaN -> TaN -> Bad has only a few good uses, and all but one of them involve the early game. For me, I don't care if I die early because it only takes a few minutes (at least playing AoPc) to get back to the floor I was on. This means I shoot for the endgame necessities: HR/DM and Iro.  On HNTR this isn't as imporatnt because the early game lasts a lot longer, but on UV and N! you'll understand what I mean.

Yea Hunter, you get longer berserk packs but that's providing you will find one. On N! you can get easily killed without it (though you get those in Chained Court). Well, it's all about luck anyway so I guess you're right..
