 2 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 1 of those was killed.

 1 souls destroyed the Mastermind...
 1 killed the bitch and survived.

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

Although I was a far cry from a good player before, it took quite some getting used to the feel of it again, even on entry level. I banked on Cateye being a lot of help there, which turned out to be a good choice - it compensated for a lot of sloppiness on my part. Doing the Anomaly without taking damage - not being pestered by Lost Souls and Cacos - was a lot easier than I recalled, and with invuls before both the Cyberdemon and the Mastermind both turned out to be trivialities.

Finding the Wall on 11 instead of 7 makes an incredible difference (even though I prayed for a missile launcher to use against the Brothers); previously, this was a point at which a lot of my runs failed, since I didn't want to skip it, but was often too easily overrun by the Knights. These couple of levels of experience will make all the difference for me.
The Military Base is awesome: this comes out of the original as well, right, or Doom2? I couldn't complete it though, since some critters were stuck in the bottom right corner which I couldn't blast myself into. What's up with that?

I tried all the other special levels I found as well, actually more or less hoping to die and see how well I did, but they were all easier than I expected. The new Spider's Lair is definitely an improvement, with lots of cover to make use of. The Phaseshift armor I found before made a huge difference there too, especially combined with INT2/MCe. I skipped the Lava Pits since I finally wanted the run to be over. Oh and not die sinking into the muck on the floor, since I had nothing to protect me.

Having taken this hurdle, it's on to HNTR and a string of casualties on my part. Having scored this many awards in one run will make it worth it though. Don't think that happened before and it won't be again any time soon.

Aha!  You discovered one of the additions to 0.9.9.7, Supply Crates!  :D  Some crates are more brightly coloured than normal and can be broken open with any weapon and have valuable stuff inside, including med packs, armour, and ammo.  The Military Base has a lot of Supply Crates and is a friggin' gold mine of useful stuff if you know this.  Those guys you couldn't get to in the bottom right corner were behind a supply crate.  I know this well because the first time I played through the Military Base, I did the same thing as you did and wondered, "How the hell am I supposed to get those guys?" and just left without killing them.

And I agree that the Spider's Lair is an improvement; it makes it feel more like an actual "lair" and not just another arena.  :)

...and can be broken open with any weapon..

Except for Rocket Launchers, apparently. I found the crates, yeah, didn't really notice the possible treasures (RL at work for you, I guess), but the bottom right corner was solid wall all the way. After 3 or 4 rockets, I gave up.

If you were shooting at the wall I'm thinking of, then yes, that wall is indeed unbreakable.  Next time, try circling clockwise around and approaching that corner from the north.

Hmm... further investigation seems warranted. We'll see what the next run brings. Hopefully it'll include MSs and a Storm Bolter or two...
