 186 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 155 of those were killed.
 3 didn't read the thermonuclear bomb manual.
 And 6 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 22 souls destroyed the Mastermind...
 2 sacrificed itself for the good of mankind.
 17 killed the bitch and survived.
 3 showed that it can outsmart Hell itself.

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

Trying my hand at Nightmare! now as I have got most UV related badges, struggling along getting murdered a lot... I have made it past the anomaly once, but that was kind of a crazy dash without much hope, and without any special levels. I figured learning how to do the arena would help future attempts. It took a lot of tries though, needing a decent setup for level 2 with enough stimpacks or medpacks, and then some luck at the start of the arena as well. I learned the techniques from some gameplay videos posted here so thanks to Tormuse and Papilio for those!

As an aside I went into the Chained Court thinking I could rush the Arena Master and then run to the exit, but I guess everything needs to be dead for the wall to disappear? That makes it.... tough?

Damn man, you're one of the few recent neophytes who have stumbled into N! and lived [partly] to tell [part of] the tale!

I'm not much of a N! player myself, doing mostly AoPc runs but welcome to the wonderful world of craziness.

I computed, therefore I was.

Yes it's definitely a different game on N! but at least now I can see how to do it... I'll just wait for a really lucky run to carry me :)

Woo!  Way to go!  :D  I guess I don't have to tell you that clearing Arena is quite tough in Nightmare!, what with monsters from previous rounds respawning, so this is quite an accomplishment!  :)  It looks like you've discovered, as I have, that Hellrunner is a big asset on that level, since it helps in maneuvering your enemies into corpse-stacking positions.  And thanks for the credit too!  I'm glad my videos helped somebody!  :D :D :D

And yeah, in Chained Court Plus, everyone has to be dead at the same time for the wall to disappear which makes it pretty tough, since it's full of tiny enemies.  :|  To be honest, I don't have a consistent strategy for that level and always find myself improvising, because the Barons start in awkward positions for body disposal.  Once they're out of the way, though, it's just a matter of luring all the former humans/captains into the doorways.  (or knocking them into the lava if that's more convenient)  Best of luck accomplishing that major hurdle next!  :)

Thanks both :)

Right I thought as much. I have trouble with that level on UV normally, so it really is a tricky one, might forget it for a while, or maybe try the easier version without doing the Arena (seems a shame though now I can finally do the Arena ... ). Those berserks are extra handy on N! though because of the extra duration. .. . hmmm.
