sometimes I did hit "d" when pressing "f" to slam some monster with pistols, normally dropping an "f" item, and losing a second. Nice thing was when it was the only stack of 10mm left on me.

My stupid thing was trying to rocketjump with a wall right at my side. Thankfully it still blew surrounding souls apart for me to flee elsewhere.

Playing Ao100, "alarm rings" level feeling.

About floor...35, so it's all good in regards to difficulty.

Pretty pimped out in regards to gear, plenty of rockets, good set of traits...I forget which build though...

Decide to wait out the enemies, so I take cover. I can hear Viles, Mancubi, etc far away.

Sound does not get louder...

Wait about 100 clicks of the wait key, nothing.

I go out and investigate... "Hmm...there's a wall in the way, I guess I should blow it up with my rocket laun...OH S***, THE EVERYTHING!"

Everything hits me, I die in one turn...mother...

This reminds me - I enter a new level and "see a familiar object in front of me". Armed nuke.

Well, I've beat AoRA several times and these random nukes have a much longer timer than those in AoRA so I treat that as a standard level.

Cue me using the wait command and getting nuked instantly since I upped the max amount of turns it's supposed to wait significantly.

Ok, since we're talking about nukage now, I've got another fail to share.

Angel of Impatience, doing pretty well, I forgot what build/equipment I had. Working my way through... I think it was mid-Hell, and I run across a Thermonuclear Bomb sitting on the ground. My immediate thought was: "Heeeyyy. I could use that to clinch a partial victory." The fact that I was an Impatient marine didn't quite click until....

Me- "g".

DoomRL- "They always said patience was a virtue.... Nuclear detonation in 10 seconds!"

I couldn't stay mad. Honestly, that was just funny, even to me.

I remembered another time today before acid and nepalm barrels were introduced.

I was hurting at the time, looking for a med kit or a lever to heal myself.  I find a lever in this tiny room  (3-4 high by 5 wide I think) with a pair of barrels.  I shove the barrels as far away from the lever as I can and then pull the thing.  "BOO-O-O-O-O-OM!!!!"  Fried DoomGuy anyone?

Maybe less of a stupid and more of a sudden thing that happened, but ~120-130 runs ago, when I was still trying to beat AoMr on HMP...
I reached the Vaults with the Arena Master's Staff. I was in a near-perfect position to win with tons of ammo and a few large med packs. So, I...well, here's the last messages.

You picked up a large med-pack.
 There is a lever here.
 You pull the lever... Green acid covers the floor! Argh!!! Acid!
 Argh!!! Acid!
 Argh!!! Acid!
 You use a large med-pack. You feel fully healed.
 There are stairs leading to The Vaults here.
 You enter Hell, level 2. There's a presence here... You feel there is
 something really valuable here!
 There are stairs leading downward here.
 You use a Arena Master's Staff. You raise your arms! Out of a sudden
 inspiration you yell "OPEN SESAME!"! You hear a loud rumble! Boom! Boom! You
 are hit! Boom! Boom! Boom! You die!... Press <Enter>...

Yes, even though I had nanofiber red armor, I was brought from 100% to 0 in one turn. Long story short, I will only open the vaults on HMP from behind one of the walls that don't open. FYI, it was a Mancubus.

It seems that Mancubi are the new Archviles of the current version.

Everyone seems to hate Mancubi more than dem Viles.

Because an unassisted old Arch-Vile was not capable of instantly killing a 100%HP player, nor did they obliterate all the cover in a target's vicinity.

Well, one of the things I do if I get to Vaults with the Staff is use it AT ONCE, to use a bit of time while those mancubi/viles/revenants/arachnotrons are still warming up.

What I do is clear the side vaults first, as they can be opened without the staff. The I use the staff to open just the the middle one. You have much less to worry about that way.

Entered the Vaults with a bunch of phase devices in inventory, decided to attempt Scavenger Platinum - and forgot I was playing AoMC.

Yes, I did happen to phase in. Yes, I did get promptly splattered all over the walls.
