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

I say. This is the furthest I've ever got - on 0.9.9.2 the furthest I'd ever reached was 14. I was unbelievably grateful to find the stairs to Halls of Carnage on 14 - I planned to use the BFG on the Hellgate. Namely, against the Bruisers. However, given that this was the furthest I've ever got, I was a bit panicky and entered the Hellgate with no medpacks.  When the first walls came down, I used all of my power cells (and I was surprised I wasn't going through them as fast as when I found the plasma rifle) on the weaklings, finishing them off with a few blasts from my tactical shotgun. I had no power cells, was panicky and then, of course, the Bruisers! I had to run past them into the teleporter, entering the next level with around 30% health. Luckily there was a nearby invuln and a supercharge globe in one of the corners. I then entered the UC, just to see what it was like. I then, obviously, left. Level 17 was a bit unusual. I killed the first baron I saw, then was promptly scorched by an archvile (who I managed to kill with my trusty shotgun), and I got chased round one of the crates by a Baron. I had no spare ammo for the BFG, and unloading my plasma rifle would have took too long (probably), so I took a shot and killed the bugger. Then, I dealt with a cacodemon and ran for cover, before I was melted by a commando.
Arse.

Anyway, overall, this was quite a good run (for me). I did a few assemblies, managed to kill the shambler and entered Phobos Hell.
And if you're wondering why I ran from the arena, I only had a shotgun and was on 7% health by the end of the first round. And I found the Berserker Armor, and was quite pissed when I couldn't wear it.

Welcome aboard :)

A few things:

The chaingun and the chainsaw both require special planning to make them anything other than a waste of space once you've got your hands on a combat shotgun. If you're still carrying either of them after Halls of Carnage, you'd better have a very solid plan.

Ironman is usually best left until after you've got the "core" of your trait selection sorted out. In most games, you'll probably have something better to do with that trait pick until at least eighth level.

The Halls of Carnage, like the Arena and the Chained Court, are guaranteed to spawn no matter what difficulty you're playing on :)

Armorer Platinum and Diamond should be abolished; the Dragonslayer taboo deserves every scrap of mockery it receives.

I've got a few more tips:

Armor is more important than you think, carry a spare or two

The farther you get the more planning you will need for each action as the risks can only get greater

Decide what type of weapons you want to use before you even choose your first trait, you can change if you find something special but otherwise stick to your script

Ironman is almost always the wrong pick before level 8

You don't need to kill them all but kill a lot of them early

Ammo can get very scarce after the hellgate so horde it when you get the chance. This goes double for shotgun builds so grab what you can from the Halls of Carnage.

The rocket launcher is your best friend at the hellgate if you can surprise the first group (remember where they are and think about the gun)

The BFG is the most ammo hungry weapon in the game, as such think of it as a finisher or a plan B

Seconded on the ammo. Whichever gun you're planning on using a lot hoard before the Hellgate. (Three to four slots IMO.) If you're planning on using a gun almost exclusively (i.e., you found the Minigun or Jackhammer), carry at least six. With those guns you always need much more than it seems.

Also, the chaingun is definitely a total waste by that point. Without anything put into Eagle Eye you must not have been hitting anything with it. Gun + ammo = 4 slots of wasted space.

But all in all, not bad, just plan out your traits a little more and you should be alright !

Thanks for the advice.
I only really kept the chaingun if I ran out of ammo for the plasma rifle, and quickly realised I had too much 10mm and not enough shells.
And I'll keep the Hellgate tips in mind.
