[M|AoB|86%|YAFW] First AoB Win Ever
« on: January 21, 2012, 18:13 »

Well, I was typing a bunch of stuff up and then lost it all because I accidentally, stupidly navigated to another webpage! Gaaaaahhh.
Anyways, first AoB win ever, among other firsts. Hadn't played the game since 0.9.8.10, having won once on AoMr then and once plain on Easy. Always had hated doing AoB though, as my runs never got off the ground, usually getting slaughtered slowly but surely by the former sergeants early on. But this run, after the grinder that was the arena, started going very well. Especially once I did the Chained Court and got the chainsaw.

Did a lot of things for the first time - UC (easiest special level ever in AoB, only lost 20% of 200% if that), The Mortuary (ran away though, was too many enemies for me to handle ultimately), Dis (nuke+invinc), and fought JC. That battle was also hilariously easy - as I approached, he summoned a few lost souls that I almost immediately berserked cutting through on my way to him, and then slaughtered him in 8 turns of melee, taking almost no damage whatsoever. Really pathetic actually. Probably be harder for other characters though.

Didn't end up doing 100% as I originally wanted, after realizing I missed mobs in Halls of Carnage. Part of the reason I had so many medpacks left at the end. Also, had so many lava infested levels in the last few stages. It was starting to get silly, so I just sort of didn't bother trying to kill too many of the enemies then.

Saw a lot of nice items I sadly couldn't use though - Firestorm weapon pack (first time drop T.T), Missile Launcher (random spawn, skipped the wall), tons of mods I couldn't really utilize properly so I stopped picking most up, Cybernetic Armor (could've used, but didn't want to risk being stuck with something useless - ended up getting lots of red after a dearth of armor in general so I ended up being ok). Phaseshift boots were nice, though they spawned super late (Lava Pits). Acid-Proof boots were an early drop though, and made some acid river levels much easier.

Also, thought I could maybe use the Nuclear Rifle as a nuke also. Apparently can't on AoB, didn't know how the Alt-Fire would interact with the restriction.

ANYWAYS! It was an amazing run, the first AoB run I've ever done that's made it even a third of the way through the game, much less all the way. And I doubled my bronze medal count and got my first gold medal, along with I think my 2nd & 3rd silver medal. I no longer have a dislike for AoB anymore (I had originally just done this run to rank up! Oh the irony...)

 11 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 9 of those were killed.
 And 1 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 1 souls destroyed the Mastermind...
 1 showed that it can outsmart hell itself.

I'm almost positive you can use the nuclear plasma rifle as a nuke in AoB, since it's not the alt-fire but the alt-reload that turns it into a nuke.

Gah, maybe that's why it didn't work then. Oops. Not like it mattered here, but good to know in the future.

Yes, I know! But all it recovered when I backed was the subject line - the content of the message was entirely lost. Trust me, it was the first thing I tried! :P
