This was somewhat of a boring run (ok, now I can understand why some Ao100 players just suicide themselves), even though I had almost everything a marine could dream of. Just check out my boots, they're made for walking, walking on lava. Then check my armor, just about the best armor money can't buy. And even the most persistent demon would succumb to three barrelfuls from my trusty super shotgun, modded for perfection. And my plasma rifle was so rigged, I needed to press space every time I used it. That's how badass it is. And my BFG10k... Let's just say I probably missed a few (dozen) exotics for being rather triggerhappy with it.

And I was bored out of my brains during the latter part. -.- I need to switch to a higher gear (difficulty level).

Here's the actual mortem:

 DoomRL (v.0.9.9.3) roguelike post-mortem character dump

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

 Before him 12 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 6 of those were killed.

 1 didn't read the thermonuclear bomb manual.
 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? 3 souls claim to have killed him...
 3 killed the bastard and survived.

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

With all that said, this Ao100 was more difficult than the previous version's, which was nice. It still does get somewhat boring though, even with the added variety. Could we maybe see some Ao100 specific level events?

Furthermore, I am sometimes somewhat mystified by the item generation. During this run, I swear I found 5 miniguns. And on some runs, I just find an abnormal abundance of agility modpacks but very few of the others, but what I'm more mystified by is the tendency for the same exotics to appear frequently during the same run. I don't know if anyone else feels the same way or if I'm just being paranoid.

And I also feel that the platinum armorer badge is undeserved. Definitely should not be a platinum level badge. Why? Well, so far I've played a whopping 12 runs in this version, 5 of which I won on HNTR and 1 which I won on HMP. The badge is too easy to get and not really that skill-based either.
