[N!|AoH|28%|YAVP] Speedrunner Diamond Badge
« on: October 09, 2011, 22:23 »

I normally suck at speed runs...

The reason I've been able to get so many Diamond Badges in this game is that I'm very meticulous and plan every move every step of the way, constantly weighing my options and figuring out the best strategies to approach every situation.  (That, and I play enough games that sometimes I just get lucky)  ;)  Nevertheless, I decided to try some button-mashing this evening to get Speedrunner Diamond.  :)  It took about 30 tries over the course of an hour, most of which were about a minute each.

My strategy was to take advantage of the Scout's ability to see the stairs and head straight for them, and try to get berserker trait to lessen damage from enemies.  After I got to the Chained Court, I was berserk for basically the rest of the game.  I had planned to chainsaw the Cyberdemon to death, but the lucky find of a nuke allowed me to go for partial victory instead.

 439 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 375 of those were killed.
 27 didn't read the thermonuclear bomb manual.
 And 16 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 21 souls destroyed the Cyberdemon...
 4 sacrificed itself for the good of mankind.
 17 killed the bastard and survived.

What diamond badges are you still missing?

Hmm...  Let's see...

Technician, (I don't think I'll ever get that one, considering the ridiculous number of nano mods I would need; I think the best way to do it would be to play Ao100 as a Technician, get Scavenger trait, and scavenge any uniques I find, hoping to get nano mods)  EDIT:  Oh yeah!  I forgot about schematics in Hell's Armory!  As long as it can give you Master Assembly schematics, I guess it's doable.  Just play a bunch of games going up to the Armory, and I suppose you'll get it eventually.

Armorer, (I'm pretty close; just three uniques left!)

Heroic, (Some of those secret medals are crazier than the Diamond badges!  I don't think I'll be getting that one)

UAC, (Considering my success with Speedrunner Diamond, this one is very possible!)

Marksman, (Considering my success with Demonic Diamond, I'm tempted to just forget the pistol and build up my fists and try to win it that way)  :)

Eagerness, (I'm finding this one pretty tough; I guess I rely pretty heavily on med-packs!)

Inquisitor, (I had a fairly successful Survivalist build in this that I intend to try again later)

Destroyer, (In this version, at least; I achieved it once back in 0.9.9.2)

Centurial, (I have an Ao100 game running right now that might turn into this;  :)  I also achieved it in 0.9.9.3)

Everyman, (Shottyhead worked well for my Masochist Diamond, so I've tried it with this too, so far without success)

Reaper, (Ugh!  Reaper Platinum was hard enough!  I don't see myself getting this one)  :|

Scavenger, (That would need so much luck that I don't see myself trying for it any time soon)

Arena, (Not in this version; I got it in 0.9.9.2; if I did get it, it would be a good way to help achieve Scavenger)

I wonder what bronze and silver badges Tormise is missing :)

I'm running a game right now, so I can't check, but if I recall correctly...

Bronze: Inquisitor and Eagerness (Angel of Purity and Impatience are my least favourite challenges, I guess)  :P

Silver:  Inquisitor, Eagerness, Marksman, and Destroyer  (I just never got around to completing Marksmanship or Max Carnage)
