Rejected possible titles: "No f'kin way", "(Any) Armor is for pansies", "PEWPEWPEWPEW".

The mortem dump says a lot, but there are a few things that it won't say, like that I spent about a third each of Deimos and Hell with no armor on my character, and a total of about 5% durability in my pack. I don't know if it's the new version or if my good rolls got spent elsewhere, but I saw very few armor suits or armor shards during the second half of the run. On the other hand, I got pretty good at "active defense", aka pewpewing the ever-living crap out of anything that looked at me funny. The Enviroboots are now one of my favorite things; during the levels where I had no armor, those boots let me conserve my precious health by ignoring the hurty acid or lava tiles. I even pulled a stupid and managed to kill JC after forgetting to switch to my fightin' boots!

The only level that I didn't cleanse of life was Floor 18, which the dump reports me leaving "as quickly as possible". Hah. What it won't mention is that I spawned in range of: a mixed pack of Mancubi and Arch-Viles, and two packs of Barons with Former toadies. Of course, I had no phases and no armor, but I spawned about 3 tiles away from the stairs- "Nothing to do here".

I started off pretty gung-ho about extra levels, particularly early on. But I was barely holding myself together in the later floors, and with my sights set firmly on the Platinum badge, I knew conservative play was in order. As Game Hunter once said, "If you don't die, you have no choice but to win eventually." Somehow I had the amazing good fortune to get a Rocket Box just before The Wall, which I immediately put to good use explode-ifying Barons and Viles. Viles are kind of wimpy when deprived of corpses and faced with brutal knockback.

Equipment-wise, most of my mods went to guns. If I'd known how stingy the RNG would've been with armor and repairs, I might have modded a little differently. All things considered, though, I somehow managed to make it work. Firestorm Plasma Rifle + MAc is wicked; I'd forgotten just how fun a ludicrous spammy rapid-fire build could be. The Missile Launcher is always an all-star in my book. It trivializes the Bruiser Bros, wastes Arachnotrons and Mancubi, and best of all is a guaranteed exotic! Pulled the Necroarmor out of the Lava Pits; honestly would've preferred the Lava Armor, just because the latter is troll-tastic with Enviroboots, but I was still very happy to finally have some material between my squishy important bits and the forces of Hell. Had VBFG9000 schematics on hand, did Whizkid just to build it. I'm pleased with the change, it's freaking brutal!

Ultra-Violence is tough, make no mistake, but I know what the game can throw at me, and I've been playing long enough to make the best of most situations. Here's hoping that this run is no fluke, and that I may finally be getting a little bit good at this whole DoomRL thing.
