[N!|95%|YAVP] ...a girl's best friend. ;)
« on: October 02, 2011, 03:09 »

I can only begin to emphasize...  BOO-YAAAAAH!!!  :P

Not one, not two, but fully *THREE* Diamond Badges in one game!  :D :D :D

I've been having a lot of luck with Vampyre build lately, so I thought I'd try my hand at acquiring the never before achieved Demonic Diamond Badge (which, incidentally, automatically gets me the Strongman Diamond Badge too) and a lucky Pain Elemental cave on level 20 gave me the opportunity to get Elite Diamond Badge too!  :)

It took many tries to get it right, but I finally had a lucky game, with Berserks and Invulnerabilities in the right places to keep me going.  There were still close calls here and there, but once I got Vampyre trait, everything pretty much fell into place.

Then I got myself into a situation on level 24 that I just have to share because it was equal parts frustrating and absurd...

It was *another* Pain Elemental cave.  The exit was pretty close by and I could have just run for it, but I was at 21% health at the time, and for a Vampyre, a Pain Elemental cave is paradise because the abundant Lost Souls provide lots of health.  :)  So, I found myself a corner where the walls formed a bottleneck so the Lost Souls could only approach me one at a time, and started getting my health back.  Unfortunately, the corner I chose was in full view of several of the Pain Elementals and I soon discovered that they were spawning lost souls far faster than I could kill them.  :|  (It wouldn't surprise me if the map was completely full of Lost Souls at that point!)  It really looked like the game was going to end in a stale-mate, right then and there, with me being unable to get to the exit and them being unable to kill me.  I was cursing myself for having used my Hellwave pack on the previous level (it killed a group of Arch-Viles and Mancubi, so it seemed like a good use of it at the time) and for having used my last phase device, because now, I didn't have any means of escaping this situation...

I don't know how long I just sat there, killing thousands of lost souls, (long enough to earn the Iron Skull Badge, apparently)  :P  but eventually, the random wanderings of the Pain Elementals took them out of my view and since they only spawn Lost Souls when they can see you, the number of Lost Souls slowly dwindled until there was a path out of my bottleneck and I made a run for it.  I still couldn't get to the exit, though, and I quickly became surrounded on all eight sides by Lost Souls and now, they were damaging me faster than I was getting health back.  It quickly became alarming as they brought me from 200% health to 20% in a matter of seconds and for a moment, I thought I was going to die there, (which would have been a really stupid way to die after getting that far) but somehow, two med-packs later, I got away from them and found my way to another bottleneck, one that was out of view of the Pain Elementals.  :)  My strategy after that was to kill Lost Souls until their numbers were thin enough to make a path between me and the Pain Elementals and then dash out, kill one Pain Elemental, and then dash back to the bottleneck to kill the horde of Lost Souls that were spawned during that dash.  Wash, rinse, repeat until all the Pain Elementals were dead.

The funny thing about all this is that a couple levels earlier, I was trying desperately to keep a Pain Elemental alive because it was my best source of healing, and I was killing Barons and Knights around it.  Every time the Pain Elemental got caught in the crossfire and got injured by one of the Knights, I would say, "Don't hurt him!  He's my friend!"  :)  ...Then about halfway through level 24, I was saying, "YOU'RE NOT MY FRIENDS ANY MORE!"  :P

After all that, it was a bit anti-climactic when I ran up to the Cyberdemon, still berserk from all the Lost Souls, and punched him to death.  :)

 251 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 202 of those were killed.
 26 didn't read the thermonuclear bomb manual.
 And 7 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 16 souls destroyed the Cyberdemon...
 2 sacrificed itself for the good of mankind.
 14 killed the bastard and survived.

Looks like we have yet another new elite player who is going to be a new legend!

Where have all the old legendary players gone?  So much new competition!  =D

Wow!  Thanks for the praise, guys!  I feel so honoured!  :D  (A rank named after me?  Really?  *blush*)

LOL

Yeah, I think this is my favourite build now.  :)  I still want to see if I can make it work in Angel of 100 when I find the time.
