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

I kinda feel like I've been posting too many mortems recently, but I didn't see any other speedrunner diamonds so here it goes. After last nights MBm UV Ao100 run I decided to see if I could get this badge using the same tactics.

Before I started attempting this I made a couple of additions to my key bindings file:
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

The plan was to get to the chained court with hopefully a med pack or two, grab the chainsaw and berserks and just keep running. The forced quit button came in real handy at this point, since if I started level one in sight of more then a couple of mobs, just quit. The chained court didn't get generated? Just quit. Use all your medpacks within the first 50 turns? Just quit. Overall it probably took around ~4-5 hours of attempts, but it wasn't a complete 4-5 hours. Anytime I need a smoke, a coffee or anything involving my attention I had to take a break so it's hard to say how long it actually took me.

As for the actual run it was kinda a blur. I think I made it to CC with a small medpack, then used the combat shotgun for the last time to clear one of the sides for a safer exit. After that I know I was able to get an invulnerability globe or two before the Halls of Carnage, which I accidentally stepped in. I figured the BFG would come in handy fighting the Cyberdemon anyway, but some quick moving made me use a medpack around the cacodemons. Unfortunately I was sober at the time so their hits were hurting and I was worried that losing that medpack might have been too much. I didn't spend anytime to think about it and just kept moving. The lucky part of this run was on level 11 when I noticed a nuke and an invulnerability globe. I didn't want to be invulnerable for Cybie, but I did want to survive the journey and get that nuke. I knew I had a BFG but was out of medpacks.

Had I realized I still had a couple of minutes and that I was carrying some extra cells I probably would have actually just killed Cybie since I was still berserking, but I hadn't been watching a clock so I just wanted to end it as fast as possible. I think the UAC diamond is still going to be a lot harder despite the fact I was able to complete half the levels in under half the time, since the berserk from the CC only lasts so long. I do think there is a possibility that Mbm is the way to go, although I'm still not convinced.

Now if I could just find Dragonslayer and the Lava armor I'd have my ninth diamond for this version.

A diamond mortem is always worth posting, great run and good luck finding those last 2 uniques.

I just want to point out this little tidbit:

  Levels generated : 10
You honestly generated ten out of eleven possible special levels in a challenge type that removes half of the chances for most levels to even spawn. In fact, I'm pretty sure Lava Pits CAN'T spawn because it's guaranteed on dlvl23, which is an odd number (and so can't be counted), meaning you DID generate every possible special level. That's awfully lucky for a speedrun, even if you didn't have to use most of them.

Still, major props to you on getting this one first, to say nothing of shattering the max boundaries by finishing up three minutes ahead of schedule. I'll probably shoot for this one at SOME point, but when I'm in the mood to quit often and quickly (along with AoB and AoPc Diamond badges).

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Speedrunner Gold is now the speed badge to get, and may prove harder than the Plat/Diamond. (Really hard to say though.)

You know, this run that was start-scummed for hours upon hours seems to have gotten an awful amount of luck, AStranger. Why, I bet you spawned near the stairs a lot and found a few extra berserk packs too.

Quick Edit: Yeah Speedrunner Gold is a huge pain in the ass, I wouldn't be surprised if I got it as my last gold.

In my defense I only start scummed to get to level 2 where the CC was. I'd rather not waste a couple of minutes being careful on level 1 just to find out that the CC didn't get generated, given I was trying to go Mbm. After the CC there was no quitting, only death and that one win, but if I know I'm wasting my time it becomes the opposite of fun. I'll agree that there was a bit of luck involved, but most diamonds require a good amount of luck so it's to be expected. The mortem implies I only had two quick stair finds, although I have no idea. There probably was a good handful of powerups but I wouldn't say there was any more then a normal N! game.

I'll probably try for speedrunner gold at some point later, I've kinda had enough of speed runs for a bit.

Yeah, I was poking fun at GH.

Say, only 2 runs getting past CC is pretty good. I've tried this challenge for a couple of hours now and I've gotten quite a few to CC, but they all die before even running out of berserk because Nightmare! literally only spawns armor shards.

EDIT: I just got this badge too, it was really easy on the run where I found a homing phase device and left several levels as soon as possible.--------------------------------------------------------------

Say, only 2 runs getting past CC is pretty good.
Crap that was supposed to read deaths. I probably had less than 5 characters that made it to the CC with even a small medpack, most of them just got there with the knife in their hands. Despite my best efforts, those without healing usually didn't make it too far. I kinda looked at this challenge as starting at the CC.

EDIT: I just got this badge too, it was really easy on the run where I found a homing phase device and left several levels as soon as possible.
Nice, it looks like you beat my time too. Why, I bet you spawned near the stairs a lot... :). In all seriousness I tip my hat to you, I'm not about to try to beat your time. Maybe Game Hunter can.
