[M|AoHu|88%|YAVP] Angel of Incredible Inner Discipline
« on: February 24, 2011, 11:32 »

Based on my feelings towards the other Angels of Discipline (AoPu, AoMs), i honestly believed i am going to absolutely loathe this challenge.

It turned to be much more tolerable than i anticipated.

The first attempt failed due to a tactical error on level 16, immediately after passing through the Hellgate.

The second attempt ended with a victory -- and it didn't surprise me at all.

After all, i am only human.

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

 Before him 27 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 10 of those were killed.
 1 of those was killed by something unknown.
 And 3 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 Some rumours though, say that the Cyberdemon was killed already!
 Is he immortal? 13 souls claim to have killed him...
 1 sacrificed itself for the good of mankind.
 7 killed the bastard and survived.
 5 showed that it can outsmart hell itself.

--------------------------------------------------------------

How can i reflect on this run, and the one before?

General: This challenge is exactly that: Angel of Inner Discipline to the max -- since any tactical mistake will kill you, you must remain focused at all times and never do anything risky, ever, being patient enough to wait around a corner for hundreds of turns if necessary, hide in a corner if necessary and apply force immediately when the opportunity presents itself.

Build: A MFa build was only logical, and the SSG appearing was more than welcome. The original red armor was power-modded, following an advice from the more experienced folks, which always stayed with me until the end of the game.

Hellgate: Armed with a bulk-modded missile launcher, i cleaned the first room and lured the bruisers in. In the first attempt, i waited until the doors of the starting room opened, then phased past and ran to the exit. In the second attempt i did not have any phases and had to resort to using violence. Luckily, the missile launcher is fairly accurate, even out of vision, and the BFG9000 is effective at cleaning up.

Near the end, i decided to give the railgun a try, and even ended up powering it up to eleven, something that helped me avoid being fried by your stray Vile and baron. It normally took two shots to kill anything, one if softened with the SSG beforehand.
Originally i planned to just drop the nuke and watch the fireworks, but MFa (depending on DM) really makes the Cyberdemon fairly safe to handle. I did take a hit when he came in sight, taking me down to 100%, but after that, everything went smoothly.

Excellent. This should push Fanta Hege on towards conqueror.

You got some medals that I wasn't expecting anyone to get so soon after the release. Well done!

About time someone gets this one!

I bet that TaN boost to the Red Armor really softened the blow from the mid game enemies.

Can't wait for the next AoHu story.

Sadly, I think AoHu is another challenge that only offers forum bragging rights as a reward at the UV level. AoHu on N! is just silly

I ddon't know, while it feels like it shouldn't be that hard (on HNTR) it's just so unforgiving that I think a little bragging is in order for Simon-v.  Nicely done!

(this post typed after I YASD AoHu, again.  gotta remember to use a rocket launcher to open the wall, instead of standing near a barrel and hoping one chaingun burst takes out the sergeant)

No.  AoHu on N! is what heroes are made of.
