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

 Before him 247 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 219 of those were killed.
 8 of those were killed by something unknown.
 8 didn't read the thermonuclear bomb manual.
 And 6 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 Some rumours though, say that the Cyberdemon was killed already!
 Is he immortal? 6 souls claim to have killed him...
 1 sacrificed itself for the good of mankind.
 5 killed the bastard and survived.

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

I've obtained this badge in 0.9.9, 0.9.9.1 and now in 0.9.9.3 and it feels a lot harder then it used to be. It took a healthy amount of tries in 0.9.9, I was able to get it rather quickly in 0.9.9.1, but this time after ~4-5 hours I finally started 'rage' quitting if the first level or two didn't go well. I've played untold amounts of this game ending only in deaths or wins, and this was the badge that finally broke me into quitting early.

For the actual run, I don't remember much of it. By the time I finished it I had been playing AoPc for about 3 hours straight, so I was well into the groove of moving as fast as possible (not because I was trying to be quick, just because I wanted this challenge over). I remember finding two homing phases early on, using one on level 13 after minimal exploration because it was full of barrels, the other on level 22 for the same reason. I used a phase after entering the Hellgate which put me close to the brothers behind the barrier, which saved me a bit of health. A couple of lucky berserk/invulnerabilities carried me until level 21. 22 was the phase, 23 was a quick stair find. Level 24 worried me, I showed up with ~4-5 large health packs and 'sober' (no powerups). It was a level full of small rooms with random lava pools, leaving me too exposed. There was a supercharge and an invulnerability globe on the level, but I couldn't get to either of them because of an arch-vile and mancubus. It took me all the healing I had, but I finally found the exit.

I wasn't going to bother posting this, but then I saw how quick it was so I figured might as well record it.

Damn man, an AoPc Diamond in the new 0.9.9.3.  You sure have the patience to play this mode non-stop for the many hours.

Looks like game_hunter et al are going to have a run for their money now...

Possibly, I think I could probably get another 3-5 diamond badges with some work, but my patience wears thin on any challenge that requires more then a couple minutes of luck. AoPc isn't that bad because each game lasts no more than say five, maybe ten minutes, so not much is lost when you die. Unfortunately I feel that N! and most diamonds are at least half luck based and I get aggravated when I play carefully for 45 minutes just to get thrown into a (near) impossible level. At that point I get to go back to 'rerolling' characters looking for an early berserk pack to try again, or get angry and play something else for a week or two. That's actually the reason I spent a few months playing UV Ao100 only, it actually feels fair.

I think the next time an update comes out I'm just going to bite the bullet and copy my data over, I really don't want to do this challenge a fourth time.
