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

 316 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 273 of those were killed.
 1 of those was killed by something unknown.
 4 didn't read the thermonuclear bomb manual.
 And 18 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 20 souls destroyed the Mastermind...
 1 sacrificed itself for the good of mankind.
 15 killed the bitch and survived.
 4 showed that it can outsmart Hell itself.

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

First, the story of this mortem. I nearly died and ragequit three times in this game. First was on the Unchained Court:



But I survived with a Tech medipack and did some happy gibbing. Still, no zerk on the Chained Court.

The next was in the Halls of Carnage, where the lava seemed to accelerate right before I got the BFG. At this stage I had BBFF all lined up and it got to the column before the BFG. I was literally 1 second away from the BFG getting eaten up. I nearly had a heart attack, because this is the first run I had the biggest fucking gun on.

Lastly was after I finished Cybie with said gun and most of my rockets. Then I got dropped into hell level 1 right next to a vile pack with little cover. With only a stack of shells to protect me.

Anyway, the real reason I did this was to see how good MSc was lategame.

First of all, I got my firestorm packs by stupid dumb luck. MSc did nothing to assist me in that regard. I didn't get a disassembleable unique despite getting 3 uniques and only got regular mods from exotics. If it wasn't for stupid dumb luck I wouldn't have had my mortuary clear/full win, since I gibbed most of the corpses with the gun.

MSc only really seemed to be a waste of a master trait the further I got into the game, ironically enough. Sure, I got to make some nice things like a Focused double shotgun and a full set of A modded tactical armor that I wouldn't have gotten to make otherwise, but those didn't really affect the game as much as something like MMB, MAc, or something would. In addition, you're pretty much stuck between sucking earlygame (going straight for the trait) or putting it off, in which case you either have to give up disassembling exotics/uniques (defeating the purpose of it) or carry them around and take up valuable inventory space - meaning you're at a further disadvantage. Unless you get lucky and get a unique that gives you a nano pack which you're more likely to simply find on the ground, and you also happen to have the mods for something else, MSc gives you literally no advantage - and with the exception of something like a Nanomanufacture Missile Launcher, nothing is going to give you a free ticket.

Something really needs to be changed about it.

I've had some good luck with it in the Angel of 100 challenge where you have more chances to find uniques.  Being able to stack MSc with Int2 is also very, very nice.  But yes, the RNG can indeed make it worthless for you.
