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

 Before him 151 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 129 of those were killed.
 2 of those were killed by something unknown.
 2 didn't read the thermonuclear bomb manual.
 And 5 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 Some rumours though, say that the Cyberdemon was killed already!
 Is he immortal? 13 souls claim to have killed him...
 4 sacrificed itself for the good of mankind.
 9 killed the bastard and survived.

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

This game was in some ways assured when I got the super shotgun, and in even MORE ways after I picked up the napalm launcher. However, there was no forgiveness near the end and even in my semi-godlike state, there were some close calls. But I'll get to that in a second.

  • My Quartermaster Diamond build is Fireangel with Iro/Fin either mixed in or after. I was fortunate enough this run to not need either of them too early, so Fireangel came quickly (and boy is it useful).
  • Started pretty strong, combat shotgun on dlvl2 and a fairly dense level. Ran Hell's Arena, cleared the first two waves but didn't have time for the second. Lucky me, the small/large med-packs were on the way to the stairs, the first of many lucky circumstances.
  • Floors 3, 4 spawned no HKs, and floor 5 was a demon cave: made clearing them a hell of a lot easier. Floor 6 made up for it by sending four Barons and two commandos, and I had less than a minute reaching CC (which is easy to clear with the help of zerk).
  • The next few of floors are pretty smooth, although shells are a concern. I manage to finally pick up a rocket launcher around floor 11 for wall-blasting when I need it. Mid-game contained two caves and two arenas which, for this particular challenge, are godsends.
  • I went for Hell's Armory with invuln going in (used it to clear out many Cacos and the commandos). Revs killed the agility mod that I basically went in for. Halls of Carnage were a walk in the park, great way to get shells. BFG is picked up but never used.
  • A couple of floors later, super shotgun. Just before Hellgate I get a napalm launcher, which I use to make the Viles very simple to beat (had I not already collected Gatekeeper Diamond I would have done so in this run). Super shotgun cleans house for most of the rest of the game.
  • Things are continuing along smoothly but I am running low on health supplies over time. Several levels spawn me in the midst of Viles/Barons/Commandos all at once, a nasty combo even for my speed and MFa. I fall as low as 8% during an encounter with three Viles simultaneously, unable to run fast enough to avoid their fire. Fortunately the points in Iro pay off handsomely, and I manage to get out of each jam. (In retrospect, a quick napalm launcher would have made some cases easier, but I didn't have Juggler either.)

Fireangel against Cyberdemon is too easy. Went to Lava Pits, hoping for a nuke in the next level, although full win would practically guarantee no YAAM, so it's fine in the end. I MIGHT have been able to clear Mort (had good shells for it, unlike City of Skulls) but I'd rather not risk a Diamond badge THAT haphazardly.

Well done. I find that this badge is quite the aggravating combination of having to play carefully and hoping the RNG doesn't decide to just murder you. I've made it as far as level eight on this one and have no plans to try to make it any further. Maybe if there was a guaranteed combat shotgun on level 2 or the RNG only generated winnable levels, but I don't see either of those happening. I do make an attempt at it every once in a while, but anymore than 2-3 in a row and I want to smash my computer. I get really sick of replaying level one just to get dropped on level two in the corner with the stairs, forcing me to clear every nook and cranny on the other side of the level and then somehow try to make it back in time, all with a pistol and a couple of shotguns.

So in summary, you must have the patience of a saint because I've been able to brute force a lot of diamonds and I just don't have this one in me.

A badge that AStranger doesn't have?  I'm actually quite tickled.
