 95 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:

 5 souls destroyed the Mastermind...
 2 sacrificed itself for the good of mankind.
 1 killed the bitch and survived.
 2 showed that it can outsmart hell itself.

--------------------------------------------------------------

Well, uhh, this apparently took 62 tries.  At first I was mimicking some cool person by trying to get strong enough to do the Unholy Cathedral.  That never worked out very well...  So the new strategy was to just run like hell, find an invulnerability, run through the Mortuary to the Nuclear BFG without it being destroyed or my invulnerability wearing off because of being knocked around for all eternity, and just get to Dis.  I got to the Mortuary about half a dozen times but never quite got to the Nuclear BFG until this run.  Then it was relatively smooth sailing.

Yes, you're one of the cool kids now.

Hehe, armor was almost impossible to come by at all.  Green armor isn't worth all that much, at least for me, because if I'm getting shot at enough for it to be useful then I'm seconds away from death anyways.  And since I was gambling on my movespeed, I didn't think it was worth even a measly 5% penalty.  The lack of a weapon was because of the Nuclear BFG, but it does produce a funny sight.  Should have unequipped the shellbox, too :)

Anyways, now I can technically say that I've won a Nightmare! game, and that was my plan all along.

Yeah... I'm kinda jealous right now, though I at least managed to get my first UV win in the meantime. I think I'll try this as well.

62 tries you say?

Edit: I've got 44 attempts so far, almost got it a couple of times. One of these, I had to skip the mortuary and found no nuke, but at least I managed to get the mastermind to "wounded" before I died. It's all about finding a lucky invulnerability early on, getting stairs nearby start locations and... getting another lucky invuln later, I guess.

Well for that you need to have some practice on N! so that you will be able to clear first level completely sometimes. Also you need to pick Bru3+Ber. At last if you will manage to preserve 2 medpacks from the start and to find 2 more medpacks OR red armor OR P or B pack +medpack then you will be most certainly be able to kill angel of death (i succeeded in it several times, and this is how I got my Daredevil diamond with scout int2->bru3->ber build.).

Thanks for this tip - I tried it and tried it and eventually I manged to clear AoOc on N! too.

Guess how many tries it took? 62. Unbelievable coincidence. Or it's the ammount of tries when RNG takes pity on you and lets you win.

My victorious attempt could have been a full win too, if only I found additional nuke or something. The minigun sadly wasn't enough to take the mastermind out before my invulnerability ran out, she was "severely wounded" when I felt vulnerable and barely manage to overload the nuclear BFG in time. Maybe I should have gambled a little and attacked her with the BFG, but I wanted to be sure I'll be able to overload it when the time came.

Cool, welcome to the club!

BTW, I tried to do this honestly and I must say that corpse disposal is quite fun.
So far I only once managed to clean UC and it was a very close call (I left it with longinus, 17% HP and no medpacks/armour), but I got longinus platinum and a new rank. Now I need a diamond to get promoted. Gulp.
