 1108 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 942 of those were killed.
 11 of those were killed by something unknown.
 59 didn't read the thermonuclear bomb manual.
 And 35 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 62 souls destroyed the Mastermind...
 7 sacrificed itself for the good of mankind.
 49 killed the bitch and survived.
 6 showed that it can outsmart Hell itself.

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

After trying a few different builds I finally got Masochist Platinum + 100% (close enough). The three kills I missed were all on level 20, I really couldn't stick around to get them on a unholy radiation level considering the challenge mode. Shottyhead + Dodgemaster is rather absurd, almost feels like 'gun kata but for shotguns'.

Despite blowing 4 phases in the stretch from Mastermind to JC, I still didn't manage to keep any invincibility time for the JC fight. That said, I still beat him without taking damage thanks to dodgemaster.

My phobos anomaly was incredibly lucky. Not only did I have a phase device, but it dropped me behind the teleporter room. I corner-shot the bruisers from there using an unmodded shotgun (with a couple of rockets from my micro launcher) and killed them without taking damage.


On level 22 or so I found a sniper mod so I thought I could finally get plasmatic shrapnel, but no luck. I'm still missing 2 basic assemblies.

I sincerely hope you didn't reset your game data upon the 0997 release... :S
Other than that, very awe-inspring.

When did Kornel make player files incompatible with old ones, forcing us all to make new ones? Version 0.9.9.0? That's the version my player file started on.

I honestly wouldn't know, I only discovered this game when 0996 was released. It did save my progress when I installed 0997, though, but I purposely deleted the files so as to start with a clean slate. Was my one shot at seeing more than 3 or 4 rewards appear in the mortem, and I'm a sucker for artificial praise.

I will also admit to being a sucker for artificial praise.  :D  Also, with all the changes between versions, including badge requirements, it just makes sense to me to reset the badges each time anyway.

Ooh, you used my favorite build. MSh is the best kept secret imo. :)

The only thing I don't like about it is that DM before Cybie is such a tight squeeze.

The cyberdemon fight is never going to be a giant problem even without DM, but I was almost halfway between level 9 and 10 by the time I got to him so it was trivial. I suppose that the wall and halls of carnage gave me a whole bunch of baron kills to level up with.

You're talking to a living legend, LuckyDee. Thomas was - and is - one of the most influential personalities in the history of DoomRL. He is probably the only person on the forums, from among the still active, that can boast once having his nick painted red because of the DoomRL Angel title bestowed upon those few who basically kept this game alive after it had entered a long, dreary stasis.

Yeah, I already figured it'd taken him more than a couple of weeks to do over 1100 runs. I feel respectfully humbled.

Jeez.


I was quite displeased to lose my red name, but "Old Chaos Guard" basically means "DoomRL grognard" which I've come to realise is way better, both in general and as a specific descriptor for myself.

Legend is a legend, though. Even if conservative. You know, if legends were not grognards, this world would be a sad place :P

Did you know that Thomas put together one of the most complete guides to the game back in the day, and most of the terminology we use today to explain the mechanics draw heavily upon that guide?
