[H|99%|YAFW] A winner is I
« on: April 26, 2013, 15:59 »

Hellu, just managed my first victory. I have quite some roguelike and DOOM experience beforehand so decided to try my hand at HMP to begin with and could never get myself to lower the difficulty afterwards, despite the game repeatedly shooting down my early attempts to get off the ground. Decided on a Rapid Fire marine build early and then pretty much bruteforced that until success.

Early game was uneventful with the exception of the Arena Master unexpectedly deciding to go for a walk to the level start within moments of me spawning (basically I bumped into him as I returned from killing the first set of Hell knights). Turns out I got to the Berserk pack faster than he could blast me though. After that it was rough sailing with a Heavy Weapon Chaingun up until Hell's armory, which turned out to be the power tipping point as I was getting my grubby hands on a laser rifle and proceeded to 2HKO pretty much everything from that point onward. Ammo consumption turned out to be kind of heinous however, and as I didn't find a Nano mod (or any advanced mod for the entire game..), this made me abandon my original plan of assembling an early Nano Rifle  and beeline Ammo Chain, which turned up a few levels down (I chose to skip skulls due to this though, screw that noise). Oh, and Burst Cannon Laser? It's where it's at. Ammo chain incidentally out to be double fortuitous as I somehow managed to Rocket Launcher away the Backpack in Containment Area. Had some serious breaks from the RNG otherwise, finding Nuke and Invincibility before UC, a hatred Skull before Limbo and a Gothic Armor to complement my Fireproof Red early in hell (as well as a few unique sets I ended up not using). Nuked Spider because I could, blew an early BFG blast on the great evil due to inexperience and then proceeded to murder him in a matter of turns anyway. He did almost blpw away my Fireproof Red though, which made me switch to the Angelic Armor at the last moment.

The lone thing that got away was a Hell knight on the chase level which I couldn't bring myself to hunt down due to the time restraint. I did hear it fry some on the approaching wall of lava, but that reached the stairs before he died unfortunately. Ah well.

 41 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 34 of those were killed.
 And 6 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 1 souls destroyed the Mastermind...
 1 showed that it can outsmart Hell itself.

You mean Halls of carnage, right ?
Stairs don't get replaced by lava, so you could have just stood on the stairs until he dies.

Thanks! The stairs thing never crossed my mind tbh, and even if it had I wouldn't have been to keen to experiment (this being a good run and all). There's always a next time I suppose..

Outsmart Hell itself? Isn't that the full win text? Or am I confused?

Either way, nice job - I've yet to manage an HMP victory.

Wait, you use another acronym for killing him whom shall not be named? Huh. Changed title to accomodate that.
