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

 Before him 51 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 46 of those were killed.
 1 of those was killed by something unknown.
 And 2 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 Some rumours though, say that the Cyberdemon was killed already!
 Is he immortal? 2 souls claim to have killed him...
 2 killed the bastard and survived.

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

"Iosa the Invincible" is from Iji and I borrowed her name for good luck. Since I beat AoB for the first time this run, it appears to have worked. =D

Since I couldn't rely on being handed a lot of "kill everything" levels early on this time, I made up for it by hurling a lot of knives at barrels, which sort of solved my whiny "Fucking shotguns!" issue. Since the first few levels have more knives than you'll ever need, it's relatively simple to spend the first couple of floors throwing knives around corners to scout or luring imps into explosive traps. Not as effective as a shotgun or pistol, but still managed to make things a little easier. Using barrels to make alternate passages when a computer map shows where the exit is was also pretty important for skipping what sounded like a monster block party on level 4.

I was actually pretty worried after the Chained Court, because I didn't see a lot of health packs, and I'm used to them taking up nearly half my inventory. I had loads of armor to make up for it, kinda, and managed to avoid ridiculous things like trying to slug it out with Barons without 'zerk or being caught near a shotgun squad. Though I had a real bad moment two or three levels after the Court when I spawned inside a vault full of Cacos. Like nine of the bastards. I don't rightly recall how I survived that, but luckily I did.

I thought I cleared out the Armory, though apparently I missed someone. I was tempted to hurl the Trigun in the lava, but kept it for repeatable nuking purposes (Never actually used it; I was provided handy portable nukes for my destructive purposes). I did chuck that useless BFG into the lava river at the Halls of Carnage, though. I think tossing useless uniques/exotics into lava is an excellent way to spite the game and it's insulting offerings of firearms to berserkers. I actually forgot to do that for the Beretta as I was a tetch preoccupied by sudden Baron pubcrawlers, but I intended to.

I nuked level 13 because I found a thermonuclear bomb and because I damn well could. And while it says I nuked level 17, I actually nuked the City of Skulls with another portable bomb, mostly because it was funny. I probably could have used the level to put myself into berserk forever and let vampyre keep me alive, now that I think about it, but destroying the city with the power of the atom was too good to pass up.

I played more conservative toward the end to avoid my fate from the last game, though I managed to kill more mancubi and viles this time (Whee 'zerk speed!), and on level 16 I found the Onyx Armor just before hitting the Cathedral, which I powermodded and happily wore for the rest of the game.

I didn't quite kill everything on the last 10 floors, but I killed as much as I could manage, and actually didn't need to heal up too often. Berserker+Vampyre turned all those little mobs of early enemies into healing orbs with laughable guns, and the guys with plasma didn't spawn often enough to cut through the gobs of armor that made the chaingun and shotgun guys safe to take out. I avoided wading in to lava, but it didn't quite become as bad enough to stop me from exploring most of the final levels, and I got kinda paranoid about barrels toward the end since a shotgunner and a napalm barrel are what ruined my last attempt. But for the most part I killed whatever got in my way.

I homing phase'd on level 9, but explored a bit around the exit and killed a few barons, a vile, and a mancubus. Then I went into Cybie's little den and used another one for giggly experimental purposes, and managed to end up relatively close to the guy. He hit me with one rocket, then we traded blows until he died. I didn't go berserk, but I didn't need to heal either. The lance kinda wrecks him, doesn't it?

Anyway, my first winning AoB, I can move on to other medals and whatnot.

Hmm, knife throwing as a diversion is a tactic that I've not actually used for any of my melee games -- I must try it some time soon.

And the LS damage is very RNG dependent, since it has a damage of between 8 to 64.  If you got unlucky (like what I have been experiencing recently), you might not even survive to tell the tale particularly when you are not 'zerked.

Good win!  =D

Actually, the LS damage is as far from RNG-dependent in one direction as the thing you have to kill to get it is in the other :)

Rolling that many dice with that many sides creates a very strong centre-bias.

I don't think Iosa's a good "good luck" name.  She kinda doesn't live up to her title, after all..
