[M|AoMC|89%|YAVP] Modest Progress
« on: October 08, 2017, 15:54 »

Ok, fueled mainly by Icy's progress reports, I've been reclaiming those badges I'd scored on my other machine. I really wanted to go for MSs AAo666, because:

1) Never finished it before
2) Lots of kills
3) Lots of stuff
4) Lots of assemblies
5) It's sharpshooter. It's a certifiable stealth death factory when backed up with INT2 and WK2. I may have mentioned I really love this trait one or two (hundred) times.

Unfortunately, this would require reaching 1st Lt. with 12 Silver to be harvested first. After my lucky Marksman run a month ago, I first bagged Centurial Silver (and Gold) on a Vampire build in three tries. I thought I was ready to try AoMC UV again, but after three attempts going belly-up early Deimos at best - Barons and my own sloppiness being my worst enemies - I decided to put that thought away again.

I went for Lightfoot Silver instead, which was as easy as I remembered it to be: Vampire build on HNTR, which additionally netted me the first three Reaper badges. Next up was Strongman Silver, picking up Heroic Silver on the fly with Sunrise Iron Fist and Malicious Knives, masterless build on ITYTD in a single attempt. Next was Speedrunner Silver, Scout chainsaw stairdive on HNTR in two tries. Needed only one more, so I thought I'd do Quartermaster Silver by the same tactics, but I forgot about the stair sense thing.

Back to AoMC then, but on HNTR this time:

Up until Hell, it went really well. Instead of aiming for Cateye, as I did on my UV attempts, I remembered MaiZure's words and went masterless this time. Dodgemaster would have saved my ass on the failed runs, so after INT 2 that was my first goal. Almost swallowed my tongue on the Anomaly, as my phase landed me up against the northern Bruiser's cubicle, in a position to just squeeze out one shotgun blast and run for cover. To my amazement, I cleared that one damageless.

Deimos came and went. Shambler tore me a couple of good ones, but nothing nearly scary. Went into the Spider's Lair and lightly soiled myself when the first Arachnotron managed to squeeze out a burst before my second F-modded chaingun volley could kill it. Turns out it was the only one that pulled it off. Between DM, the BFG and the cell pack, Cybie was a done deal.

Hell got real hairy real quick. Some bad decisions on my part, but a couple of levels put me in a pretty fearsome starting position, and I managed to draw a napalm barrel level among those as well. My attempts at a 100% killrate ended there, and I was starting to curse myself for not bringing the nuke I ran into somewhere on Deimos. I escaped to Hell 7 by way of the Lava Pits - just to wave at the stuff flying around there and be off again - and there was this huge acid river running through it north to south, no bridges. I slaughtered whatever was on my side, and luckily enough the stairs where close by to - although I still had a homing phase. There was a tracking map at hand as well, so while I was considering my options, I picked up. And lo and behold, hidden away in the corner of the map - again, at my side of the river - was the game's second nuke.

Thinking my luck had must've run out by now, I didn't even try to take on Spidey. Downstairs, big boom, done. So, 666 levels of grind, here I come!

You know what, I think I'll save and shutdown instead. But thanks for this highly dubious piece of advice ;)

Best of luck with your proposed ArchAo666 game!  It's gonna be very long and takes a bit of masochism to grind through it.  Also, doing it without a melee build is doubly masochistic.  Also, also, doing it without the benefit of the Scout's stair sense takes a special kind of masochism!  Are you sure you know what you're getting yourself into?  :o
