 35 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 28 of those were killed.
 1 didn't read the thermonuclear bomb manual.
 And 1 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

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

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

I get that this probably isn't a significant achievement, but I post it because I'm pretty pumped about my first (arguably second) Platinum (this is from someone who still can't get UV AoSh?)

Uh... yeah, this challenge is probably a little easier than its 'Blade' difficulty suggests, 30% speed boost is insane.

As for an actual commentary of the run, there isn't much to say. Stairsensed my way to CC with a shotty, got a lucky invuln chain going a few floors before Cybie, did UC because I've never done it before and I was on good health, took a few speed-boosting traits so I could hilariously outspeed anything that scared me too much.

Also, ignore the 5/35 success rate, I recently lost my playerdata recently, so I'm regetting some of my old badges (playing for badges I know I can get = fewer losses); I'm nowhere near as good as a 1/7 success rate.

Holy hell. I've been trying this with regular AoLT for hours now without success. And you're managing with only 2 inventory spaces?!

The one time I made it to Dis, I had only a single small medkit left, and couldn't close to the Mastermind before she shredded me(without proccing Berserker =\). It feels doable, but it'll take a lot of attempts, I think.

Edit: What? You cleared the Anomaly? Why? I've just been running past it... It's free large medkits and a red armor, and I can usually make it to the exit with bonus health remaining... clearing it seems like an unnecessary risk at best, and a waste of those two medkits and the armor, or even a death, at worst. Or is it easier then I'm expecting? I always had a lot of trouble with it...

Edit: Finally got it =P Still didn't clear the Anomaly, though. And I still think managing this with only 2 inventory spaces is insane, lol.

I'm assuming 'this' is the platinum badge, though I'm a little confused; assuming I understand the time system correctly, doesn't ArchAoLT actively help you get the platinum (30% speed boost equals actions take fewer turns)? Especially given that melee builds really don't care about inventory space?

Experience points. I really don't get many kills on either of the LT challenges, and this (along with bosses, and UC now that I feel comfortable with it) is one of the few guaranteed sources of experience I've got. Anway, with zerk, it's really not that big a deal, just chainsaw things, run back for a health globe, trigger the brothers, and take them in a doorway.

Regardless, I looked over your mortem, and I must say, I'm kinda kicking myself for not looking for a dlvl23 invuln, Mastermind's Brain really makes the mortem look that much nicer (also I still don't have it).

Well, yes, but I wasn't consistently finishing it in more then 20k turns =P I wasn't making it far enough at all. The ability to carry extra ammunition and medpaks in the beginning was critical for me - without them, I wouldn't have made it anywhere near as far.

I didn't really look for it - it kinda got handed to me, lol. 23 isn't the place for running around looking for things, especially on an underleveled doomguy with no ranged weapons. It's nice if you can get it, and to be completely honest, it's the only reason I survived the fight, but imo MMB isn't too difficult to get - I have several of them, most without any invulnerability, since the Mastermind never closes distance. Int2 with plasma rifle is usually enough to grab it.

Cyberdemon's Head, on the other hand - the one on your mortem - continues to elude me. Supposedly it's a simple matter of Fireangel + Dodgemaster, or even just Dodgemaster if you can position properly(or a lucky invulnerability chain ;)), but I have yet to manage it. So suffice it to say I'm more impressed with that, lol.

You might be right about anomaly - I was just always too scared to try it =P as for UC, I arrived there with like one small medpak, and I know from my (very many) AoOC runs that I can't take AoD without at least a large medpak and some good armor, so I had to let that go. Mastermind seems to go down pretty fast to the basic chainsaw, as it is - Longinus is nice, but not mandatory. Still, those special levels probably make up the kill rate difference between our mortems, and a higher kill rate does make for a nicer score ;)

... I honestly can't believe Int2 Plasma Rifle (or anything with sufficient damage) never occurred to me. I play intuition occasionally, but I don't think I've ever played it seriously enough to get to the Mastermind with it.

I have problems with non-invuln CH too, it's a real effort for me to play the fight slow enough to read the messages for the "reloads rocket launcher" alert. Explosion splash is a bitch too, Fireangel's a pretty big deal unless you get lucky with pillar generation and Cybie spawn.
