Here's the story so far:

1st run:Everything was great, i manage to get MFa after kicking the Bruise Brothers ass, on level 16 i killed all the aracnatrons without much effort.... then i grabbed the berserk pack and this was the most stupiest thing that i have ever done on DoomRL: i didn't check the stairs (there was 2 of course) so i entered to the UC without chainsaw. I bursted in rage.......

2nd run:With the lesson learned i tried it again but now begin careful on stairs i entered level 7 and there was an invul glove, so i said: "Well i better wait here". So it was set, i waited on the invul...... the another stupid thing happend to me: only 20 seconds before explosion i was ready to grab the invul (I always like to wait until there was only 20 seconds before explosion, don't ask why) when an imp appeared of course i dispose of it......... but by mistake i pressed the run button (,) and then i pressed the wait button (at that moment i didn't know that: Run button + Wait button = 20 turns of wait)
so you know the rest, the thermie exploded and i died.

3rd run: This is it,filled with rage, i tried it again and this time i succeded, luck was on my side this time and the result this mortem:

 Some rumours though, say that the Cyberdemon was killed already!
 Is he immortal? 15 souls claim to have killed him...
 2 sacrificed itself for the good of mankind.
 12 killed the bastard and survived.
 1 showed that it can outsmart hell itself.

Congrats on the run. AoRA 100% isn't HARD, it just takes some patience, the right build, and a little luck. I personally prioritize HR over Rel early on (who knows where those stairs are gonna land) but it's not necessary as this run clearly shows.

There's a weird trend of completely skipping special levels. Is it just me? Seems like no one wants to do 'em anymore. I can completely understand not wanting to risk them on AoRA, but trust me when I say ALL of them are doable at this difficulty. A few hours ago, I just barely pulled off a a UC victory there in the latest beta. (Admittedly, some of the new stuff helps to this extent.) In fact, the only ones I'd call problematic, given around the normal kind of stuff you'd have for a given level, are UC and Mortuary: the rest are easy AND quick on HNTR. If we add UV to the mix, then add Lava Pits, City of Skulls (it's the second wave that gets you), and Spider's Lair (stupid teleporters). Vaults should be avoided on an 100% run save Conqueror.

But anyway, I don't mean to clog up your sweet victory with crude analysis. You managed a Compet-n Silver in spite of the 100%, and that calls for huge props.
