[H|99%|16|YASD] 0.9.9.5 Cybie is too big a bully
« on: January 06, 2012, 08:14 »

First off, this version is a lot more interesting with the new AI. Much more challenging, but also more time-consuming. This was my first try on it. Sad that everything was going great before that big cyberdouche did me like I was nothing. Everything else was pretty sweet.

Firestorm pack on lvl 6 yawzaaa, perfect for my pistol game. The wall - horribly hard :( . I had 40% health, no medpacks, busted green armor and i could hear at least one baron left. Man that was hard one to swallow, but survival is more important.

Cybie did me bad. First moment I see him BOOM and 4 squares away with no idea where to shoot at. Then as usual, he knows where I am and keeps on going. Pillars didn't do much for cover and as soon as I was next to a wall I knew it was over. Those medkits wouldn't have done the trick, and the phase ... well i was afraid that once again he would do me from distance. Never saw a homing device though. This guy is too damn accurate, I dodged only 2 of his rockets sidestepping.

Also, my guns and chaingun couldn't bust through the first line of doors in the Halls of Carnage. Don't know whether a bug or intentional.
P.s. NOT going to try a speedrun on THIS version. Not with this big "C" in the way.

Hmm, Storm Bolter has crazy stats. Another assembly I'll probably never figure out :P

Anyway, you were a technician, so you definitely could have been fine. Item use is only 0.1s for that class. You could have almost instantly used a large med-pack, then crossed your fingers and phased out. Plus you had two cell-packs AND two BFGs...Cybie was toast in the making.

Red armor would have helped though. (Especially fireproofed.) The increase in Cyber accuracy you're noting is probably just the +1 accuracy all enemies have on HMP. Really, he's just a big softie deep down. :P

I don't know if there's any old-school Doomers out here, but there was a Doom II deathmatch PWAD that was uploaded around 1995...it was just a large square courtyard with marble pillars. Anyway, on single player, it spawned four Cyberdemons...The darn level shipped with like a 5-10 minute demo of the author just circlestrafing around them and taking them ALL down with the supershotgun. I think he got hit like once. Crazy....I mean I was good, but not that good...:-)

You had plasteel boots, they give you -50% knockback, if you T-modded them it would be -75% which usually reduces knockback to zero.
Actually with MSS and SBP you don't need to see anything to kill it.Just shoot in the dark.I killed Cybie that way in 0994.
Also use runnning.-2 to-hit isn't much when you have EE3, but it really helps sidestepping and moving closer.
