[H|Stnd|100%|YAFW] First game back, first full win
« on: November 10, 2014, 00:33 »

Took a break from this game about a year-and-a-half ago, and on buying a new laptop, decided I'd fire it up again. My original plan was to replicate my old Running Shottyman UV Conq run, but I'd forgotten that you don't start with Ultra-Violence unlocked.

I figured I may as well use the lowered difficulty to practice melee, seeing as I never really took to the build despite it being obviously powerful. This worked out... quite nicely.

My memory of the run is already pretty blurry (melee runs all feel much the same), but there were a few memorable moments.

I almost took the Cyberdemon damageless, but he got a lucky shot through my high dodge chance (whatever, I was relying on luck anyway), at which point I just charged him down to finish it off quickly.

I got careless in The Vaults and had my fireproof armour destroyed by a Revenant, which forced me back into fairly conservative play. Sometime post-UC I started underestimating HMP enemies, and was also starting to lose concentration, despite having taken breaks for Doctor Who and dinner.

The Mortuary was actually surprisingly easy this time around; I'm not sure if this is a side effect of HMP or of melee being OP (or maybe I just had a good spawn), but I killed two 'Viles within the first few turns, popped a few blood skulls, hit things and killed more 'Viles then won. The real problem this run was actually the Lava Pits (which, funnily enough, I've never actually taken before). I kinda fucked up a little and totally forgot to use my enviro suit, so I burnt a lot of health packs, then towards the end of the level decided to take the Lava Elemental with my Missile Launcher, rather than in melee. Given how large these two screw-ups were, I'm not totally sure how hard the level actually is, but it definitely strikes me as being harder than Mt. Erebus, given the total lack of cover.

JC was actually blind luck. I'd made a lot of bad plays at this point in the run, and was totally out of medkits. I emptied a lot of missiles into him early on, but his spawns were starting to get too much for me, and I was unable to close the gap to use my Scythe; I was about to accept my defeat when he kindly teleported right next to me. Silly JC. (Also, nuking SM while invuln apparently doesn't earn you brain? Huh, makes sense I suppose.)

Vampyre is brilliant, though, I came out of the Abyssal Plains with more health than I entered thanks to the Lost Soul chamber. 10/10 would suck blood again. I figure I'm going to devote the next few days to gaining my old badges back (looking forward to UV ArchAoLT, favourite challenge), then start working my way towards getting a Nightmare! standard win (which I never did manage, despite a few N! challenge wins).

Vampyre build with Azrael's Scythe?  Why would you even bother with any other weapons?  Tearing up stuff with the Scythe is the fun part!  :)
