 131 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 101 of those were killed.
 3 of those were killed by something unknown.
 3 didn't read the thermonuclear bomb manual.
 And 11 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 13 souls destroyed the Cyberdemon...
 1 sacrificed itself for the good of mankind.
 12 killed the bastard and survived.

I'd been fighting my way towards the Captain rank for a long time but the RNG was making it a 'bit' frustrating.
The most amusing failure was in AoP when the game didn't generate ANY green/blue/red armors for the first 8 levels! (I did get a ballistic shield on level 2 but it was soon gone)

I finally won my first HMP game even though the RNG gave me three consecutive arachnotron caves and almost gained the Veteran Silver along with the UAC silver but was finally forced to flee the second to last level because of arch-viles and mancubi.
So I was still one Silver short.

I soon realized getting 4 more medals would give me Heroic silver and looking at the list it even looked just about possible.
I quickly grabbed Explorer and Conqueror on ITYTD and seeing Uranium's example I figured I should be able to get the Compet-n Gold/Platinum next.

I hate speedrunning. I STILL hate speedrunning. It took me about 30 attempts before I finally succeeded and again the RNG decided to play pranks on me. These attempts were the first time I'd even seen Firestorm and Sniper mod packs and naturally there was now no chance to get WK to finally get some of the missing assemblies....
I even got Grammaton Cleric Beretta during one of the attempts and even got to Cybie that time but didn't have enough ammo to finish Cybie with the gun and got killed soon after that. So no Grammaton Cleric Cross either.
Grh.

Finally in this attempt i was lucky enough with the stairs and enemies to get to the end (even though some arch-viles and mancubi played ping pong with me over the last exit stairs). Berserked during the fight and chainsawed Cybie to pieces!

The real surprise came when the game announced I'd made Captain rank. Looks like I had also scored Untouchable Badge thus giving me enough for Heroic Silver!
Hooray!

Looking at the Gold badge list it will be interesting to see if I'll ever be able to reach Major or not.
Technician,Heroic,Strongman,Centurial and Arena seem just about possible, the others not so much :D

Speenruns are by far my worst games, my average run is about 2-3 hours...

To get the Grammaton Cleric Cross you only need to finish him off with the beretta, you can weaken him with anything you want.

Ah. Knowing that would have helped a lot :D

I'll have to remember that the next time I happen to find the gun.
