I should have known that getting an angelic badge isn't going to be a walk in the park, but wow... keeping everybody alive is a lot harder than it sounds. And it sounds hard enough. At least surviving isn't much of an issue thanks to the practice from standard AoPc games.

It seems that the Anomaly can be passed without lost soul causalities only if you find a phase device. That only makes the dependency on luck greater. I am getting further the more I play, though, so it seems skill has some degree of influence here.

I'm alternating between Hellrunner and Intuition. Both are useful. Too bad there is no way to gain another level to get them both.

Here's a mortem from one of my more successful runs, which ended with a lost soul death on Deimos 1. I explored nearly the whole level before I let it die, sadly, the stairs were in the last unexplored area

Edit: BTW, I found a second nuke, so I could have theoretically gone for a full win with a bit of luck, though I'd hate to lose the angelic badge that way.

What kinda bugs me about this thing is when you enter a level where demons run through acid or lava like suicidal retards. I mean... what then? Their new AI still does that, or am I wrong.

Yes, they still do it. They can even be spawned on lava.
It sounds more like AoLuck and AoGrind.

Indeed. But so far monsters placed in lava only ruined one two runs for me. Sergeants and later lost souls are giving me the most trouble.

My question is why does the player get credit for those kills? It makes no sense.

To be fair, if you didn't get credit for these kills, this angelic badge would be relatively trivial.

The alternative would be player losing the experience that comes from monsters dying by suicide.

Ah, the badge that I inspired!  :D

Looks like you've gotten further than I have, so far.  Kudos!  This is gonna be a tough badge to acquire!  :)

And yeah, I echo the frustration of losing the badge due to monsters starting the level standing in lava.  :|
