 3674 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 3416 of those were killed.
 21 of those were killed by something unknown.
 69 didn't read the thermonuclear bomb manual.
 And 121 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 47 souls destroyed the Mastermind...
 8 sacrificed itself for the good of mankind.
 27 killed the bitch and survived.
 12 showed that it can outsmart Hell itself.

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

There's actually surprisingly little to say about UAC Diamond. Ironically enough, I took my time quite a bit on level 2, because I encountered a pretty great combination - "the air is really humid here", a computer map and exactly one lever, allowing me to safely flood the map with water and clear it out for experience and items. Other than that, it was a straight shotgun-fuelled sprint to the Chained Court, where I grabbed the chainsaw and berserk packs and shotgunned my way past the formers. (Berserk or not, charging sergeants and captains is not fun.) From there, a slightly less rushed sprint through the Anomaly and Deimos, taking opportunities to kill enemies safely in order to level up enough for the Cyberdemon (who ended a previous attempt - no medpacks, no berserk on entry, not enough experience). Unholy Cathedral was about as easy as one would expect for a blademaster - lost souls leave no corpses, demons file neatly into a doorway to die and the Angel can't stand up to sustained berserk chainsaw. Then a charge from there to Dis, with the LS in hand, sprint straight in a zig-zag towards the Mastermind and start swinging.

UAC Diamond feels like a relatively minor upgrade to simply winning on Nightmare normally. Assuming at least a few levels give you generous stair placement, it's really not as high-pressure as it looks - one minute is a long time, and it's certainly a lot easier than the old version. (I don't think I could've earned it back when it was a 15-minute limit, and stair sense didn't exist!)

I seriously doubt I'll be keeping up the rate of 1 diamond per day for long, but for now, I guess I'll follow the philosophy of my character, as he stated in the very last message of the entire run...

Next!

Huh, you must've been playing this game for a while, if you can remember those days!  :o  I believe character classes got introduced back in version 0.9.9.4?

And yeah, the 20 minute time limit makes this challenge considerably easier than it first appears; for a speedrun challenge, it allows a surprising amount of dawdling along the way.  :P  Still, it does require a certain amount of skill to attain, so well done!  :D

"A while" would be right. Rest in peace, advanced weapons.

Looking through old changelogs, it's amazing what got added in 0.9.9.1 that I either take as a given, or remember as a major change - has armor really been unable to go below 1 protection for that long? And the Trumpets of Jericho message been a thing that long? Anyway, my very first mortem (yes, it's still archived!) shows me getting killed by a sergeant on the 11th of November 2009, and at the moment I apparently have just over  47 days, 20 hours and 30 minutes played.

You got me beat, then.  :)  My first mortem is from version 0.9.9.1, December 12, 2010.  (HMP difficulty)  I was killed by a Cacodemon in Hell's Arena.  I had no idea what I was getting into, going into Hell's Arena; it looks like I was unprepared.  I still managed to kill three Cacos, though.  :)

It looks like I've spent more time playing, though, 100 days, 9 hours, 34 minutes and 5 seconds, and that's just in the current version!  :o  If I add up all the player log files from all versions...  okay, now I'm curious, so I have to check...  :P

You guys have put in more time in perfecting this game play than I'll ever have, despite me being the Chaos Fanatic!.

Blastback kudos all around!  =D

Nice wins.

While it's great that JH is in active development and as a result responsible for most of the activity here, I'm always happy to see someone bring back the original DoomRL mortems.

Next!, indeed ;) keep 'em coming.
