-- General ---------------------------------------------------

 5 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 4 of those were killed.

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

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

It's been a few days since I killed my way to my first standard victory, so I don't really remember my run too clearly. I didn't clear two (three if counting the Containment Area) floors; one (Hell Lv1) had the floor split in two by a river of acid (that I was too chicken to cross) and a lever in the room containing the exit stairs that I pulled...and flooded the room with lava. Oops. A few large-medpacks to the stairs and some distribution of shot in subsequent floors later... Floor 2 (Hell Lv4) contained a nuke in a floor full of arachnotrons. Past experiences with floors full of arachnotrons told me NOPE, so I left the floor the moment I found the exit stairs. Other highlights included finding an onyx mod pack and making indestructible blue armour.

So yeah, that's pretty much my first win.

congrats! in only five tries, not bad!

you learned an important lesson early that took a long time for me to learn: not all special levels have to be explored/beaten, running away or skipping them is a perfect option

Welcome and congratulations! I see your first win is on angel of Shotgunnery - I'm not surprised. Even though it doesn't many benefits besides the initial shotgun, AoSh was also my first win (and my first UV win). I guess it just makes inventory management easier.

5 tries for 1st win, and an angel win ? Damn !
My first win was probably my 2nd or 3rd game... but ITYTD, not HNTR ! (and also, not angel of something, even Shotgunnery. No RL or BFG use looks like a significant difference to me).

Don't forget to "run" to cross acid rivers or lava filled rooms : it halves the damages taken.

It was my fifth attempt in 0.9.9.7. I attempted 0.9.9.6 66 times with a 0% win rate. Of those deaths, one was to nuking myself. I have three mortems for 0.9.9.4; those also ended with me dying in various horrible/hilarious ways.

Don't forget to "run" to cross acid rivers or lava filled rooms : it halves the damages taken.

This I will have to keep in mind for the future.

I'm kind of impressed! You managed to kill mastermind with only a double shotgun. I personally have never managed to win with MAD; I like the scout method more, where you compress all your actions into your movement speed with gunrunner and shottyman for nearly infinite shooting.

It's not that difficult to slay Spidey with MAD - the point is to get into her melee range ASAP, using sidestepping and running tactics. You'll take some hits for sure, but with a blue armor (or anything that grants plasma resistance or high protection, for that matter) it's easily survivable. Afterwards it's a piece of cake - her melee attack is extremely weak and she's immune to knockback, so unless she flinches and moves away from you, you're on the safe side of things.

Why not? Even AoOC with MAD and shotgun possible:

yes, "cornershoot" here near impossible. But with new Mastermind AI when he *flinched* even damageless victory becomes real
