My defeat in this run can be traced back to damage to the roof tiles of the house I'm living in...  You see, there's a leak in the ceiling of my apartment and rainwater dripped on to my keyboard, which apparently shorted it out and made it nonfunctional.  As a result, I've had to switch to a crummy old keyboard that has iffy keys that don't always register my key-presses.  (Or, occasionally, add extra key-presses)  With this in mind, I probably shouldn't have been playing this game at all, but despite these difficulties, I was doing quite well right up until it didn't register me pushing the F key to fire and I just walked up to a sergeant who killed me.

Anyway...

This was my best run of this challenge and my second time defeating the Cyberdemon in ArchAoHu!  :D  I had some really good luck throughout Deimos and some really good equipment and had a really good chance of finally beating this challenge and putting it behind me.  This makes the way I died *really* frustrating, because it was completely avoidable and there was no reason for it at all.  :|

Here's the video

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna go sulk for a while...

That is a particularly interesting way to die. You should be proud!

Meh.  A few too many interesting deaths have made me too jaded to feel any pride.  :P

Ugh, I sympathize.  :|  Wireless keyboards are not suitable for gaming.

Unfortunate doesn't begin to describe this... Get a new keyboard ASAP - I'll be waiting for your YAVP for this challenge ;)

You reached lvl2 of Hell on ArchAoHu, which is amazing by itself! One step closer to YAVP - once you get a new keyboard. Still, I feel your pain!
