[0.8.5d|H|AoCa|Sc|11|YASD] I'll win some day. :P
« on: November 30, 2019, 20:05 »

I felt like playing around with Angel of Carnage for a bit.  Scout seemed like the obvious choice, since he doesn't lose much for having fewer weapons slots, but I still got Gun Hoarder, since switching between rocket launchers is faster than reloading, especially once I got Juggler.

AoCa makes the early game super easy, since you don't even need to hit your targets.  I just shot at walls next to enemies and that was enough to kill them.  :P  Mid to late game gets more challenging, especially since I was trying to go for 100% kills and running out of ammo became a major concern when facing bots who take three or four rockets and only give one in return, or Archreavers, who take two and give you nothing.  I tried to be as efficient with my ammo as possible, hitting multiple enemies at a time when I could, but still got reduced to a single stack of rockets on the second level of Io.  (Actually, the act of saving ammo may have been a major contributor to my death, since in some cases, I ate some damage, trying to get into a better position)  The biggest drain on my reserves was the Containment Area, where I used about 20 rockets and got zero in return.  I've been compulsively going in all the special elevators all along, but I may skip that one next time.

This is my third Bronze badge, so I've unlocked UV difficulty.  Yay!  :D

angel of carnage is a lot of fun - on easy i cleared the floors up to the military barracks damageless. i would certainly agree that containment area and cri labs arent the best choice for this build though

At the moment I strongly believe that the difficulty levels are harder than their DRL counterparts. That said, you can replay the tutorial and see if you didn't miss any mechanics - people beating UV on a regular basis are out there, and I'm surprised you're not one of them yet :P

If you look at the bottom of any of my DoomRL mortems, you may notice that there are hundreds, if not thousands, of games where I die.  I win roughly 1 in 50 games, and I haven't played JH 50 times yet, so this should be about on par with expectations, I think.  I just haven't played it very much yet.  :)

Yeah. I'm still having trouble beating the game on Easy. I've gotten to Io so far, but farther is still eluding me. And I died both times I tried taking on the Military Barracks.

Tormuse, are you trying to say that you have "accuracy by volume"? :) Winning a lot through the sheer volume of games.

Shoot at everything that moves. If it doesn't move, shoot it anyway, it might move later.

Pretty much.  :P

Funny coincidence, I got the "accuracy by volume" quote for the first time yesterday; usually, when I get the chaingun, he says, "spray and pray...  okay."  :)
