Yeah, so AoB is still overpowered as fuck. I only had to spare some lives on the second floor and inside the Vaults (I only had two phases). I decided against entering Hell's Arena because it spawned on the second floor and the Containment Area because there was nothing for me there. I also somehow managed to miss the Spider's Lair or the Halls of Carnage (don't know which one it was, I didn't even see the stairs), despite clearing out the entire floor leading to them. I got a ton of mods, but after a while I just honestly didn't know what to do with them so I started assembling random shit.

Actually, have armors and berserking been nerfed? It feels like armors lose durability much faster than in the previous version and berserking doesn't last nearly as long. I don't mind the zerking nerf if it even exists, but armors feel kinda useless now, since a Baron can get even a red armor down to <25% in just two or three shots from 100% even if i'm berserk.

Anyway, here's the mortem. The "2 brave souls ventured into Phobos" thing is just because I deleted and then redownloaded the game yesterday because I derped and thought it was still 0.9.9.6.

Actually, now that I see I only missed 1 dude on the second floor, I feel like I managed to cheat myself out of a Gargulec Medal. Damn it.

AoB is still overpowered as fuck

I don't get what's "overpowered" in AoB.
Melee is probably completely OP, I guess, but what does AoB give that a normal game wouldn't ?

For me, the zerk proc on lare health globes pickup is negligible, and so is the guaranteed combat knife in entryway, so only starting stuff & Hell's arena's reward really differ. (and HA isn't the best place to go, in AoB :)
Am I missing something else ?

Sacrificing the ability to use any ranged weapon for a blue armor & 2 large packs might be worth it, but doesn't seem overpowered to me.

Well, here's the thing. Melee is already obscenely good for damage and it frees up a lot of inventory space that would otherwise be used to hold ammo and extra guns. Its only downside is that you have to go right up to enemies to kill them, giving them a chance to hurt you from range. The starting blue armor and large medkits mitigate this for the first few levels, until you can stock up on more armor and healing. The guaranteed combat knife also gives a huge boost to your early DPS, since you probably won't be exploring the first few floors fully and may not find another knife on them. As for the berserk boost from large health globes, however short it is, it adds to your berserk counter, which means you get to spend more turns zerking.

Nice going, I think I should be re-earning these badges soon, as well.

I decided against entering Hell's Arena because it spawned on the second floor

It's no longer random in 0997, always on dlev2. I still have to try HA on AoB period, but on most other games, I don't really mind anymore.

You can keep track of this in the character screen (press '@'); it gives you actual numbers of what has spawned and what has been killed up until that point.
