Post mortems
« on: January 20, 2007, 18:31 »

Because we don't have special board for Berserk mortems, i suggest we need at least topic where to post them. So here it is.))

My best result in Berserk for this time. Really stupid death, as usual.))

On level 10 there are so many tough monsters, that even with wisely chosen skills, i think it will be nearly impossible to get to level 13.

I made a try on Massacre mode, and I got a somewhat nice score, so I figured out I'll post it :)

That 19 kills on one turn was one cannon blast that sent lots of skeletons back to their graves :P

I went for all Dexterity, and I think it's the most powerful combination. Willpower is a bit dangerous, as making your berserk rage last longer might just mean you are going to die earlier:P

I finally got a score worth posting, though I still didn't even use all of my fairydusts and died stupidly.

Gave Berserk! a go because I was rushing [U|AoMr] games in DoomRL and thus kept taking needless damage and not getting past level 3/4. Berserk! is definitely another masterpiece of Kornel's :)

Tiredness, and playing an extra move without checking my hitpoints level resulted in YASD while berserking (though the critical hit didn't help :p). Its a shame because the previous Night was insane, with about half a dozen Wraiths spawning within the first few turns, yet managed to survive that one without making any glaring mistakes.

If I had read Fingerzam's survival guide, I could have done better on every Night, there is a lot of useful information and stats in there I would never have been able to work out by playing on my own, so I might give Berserk! another attempt but not before I try to get further in DoomRL.


Am just wondering, what happens if you actually survive 115 nights? because you will have maxed every skill, you might get stuck on the skill selection screen lol

I'm pretty certain getting to 115 isn't possible. :D

Btw, do you still have the .rec for the game?

Lol hoped noone would ask, I'm still learning how to play, so made some embarassing mistakes like firing a Cannon into a tree (I thought it would blast the tree apart and kill everything behind it, because I know it tears through enemies, and I know enemies destroy obstacles as well, but then I looked behind the tree and still saw a massive horde of monsters behind it).

Maybe you should add that to the guide :P (it doesn't go through obstacles). Also I kept away from Bulldemons, and it finally occured to me that I wasn't sure if they ever charged diagonally, and so I "risked" engaging a couple on diagonals, and they didn't charge - which gave me a endgame strategy of trying to keep Bulldemons off my horizontal and vertical when they got close, but up to then I still got charged a lot.

Was at the end of 12 nights, berserking on low health and took a bad risk decided to try and fight it out in a corner, when I probably should've ran, used my last Fairydust and reloaded my Cannon.

Did well in the early nights, didn't use a Fairydust until the end of night 4, and didn't get swamped or challenged until night 9, and had max items up to about night 9 or 10, but after that there was so many monsters that there was a lot of item usage.
