[0.8.5d|U|AoLT|Ma|14|YAVP] I finally won! :D
« on: December 16, 2019, 11:42 »

So I finally won a game of the latest version of Jupiter Hell!  :)

At first, I tried Technician, since he doesn't get Hellrunner, so I figured this would be his only chance to move fast, but when that didn't work, I tried Marine, since he has extra healing ability to mitigate the fact that I can't carry extra healing items around.

I'm a little bummed that I didn't get 100% kills, and I actually have no idea why I didn't, because I carefully scoured every single level.  :(  It's especially important to do so for AoLT, because every level, I have to make the sometimes tough decision of what to leave behind, so I'm wondering if it was a bug.  I checked my kill count on every level and I noticed that it said five unkilled enemies when I got to the CRI Armory, so it had to have happened somewhere around there.

Anyway, for this challenge, I leaned hard into AoLT's advantage of extra speed, and got extra, extra speed.  :)  It was the only way I was able to deal with the CRI bots on Io, keeping them out of visual range and firing my plasma rifle into the shadows.

I kept that advanced .44 pistol for a while, for the sole purpose of using against the Summoner.  It had boosted damage against "high tier" enemies, extra "finisher" damage, boosted critical chance, and boosted accuracy.  (And I had a pistol damage amp)  I figured it would be important to have a weapon that I could fire and reload quickly against him...  but then I found the Long Rifle in the CRI Armory, which turned out to be the perfect weapon for AoLT, since it's incredibly ammo efficient and my extra firing speed helped mitigate that weapon's drawback of slower firing speed.  It turned out to be quite useful against the Summoner, running ahead of him and firing back, though I still finished him off with the pistol.  :)

Another really nice weapon I found in the Armory was the Bio Launcher, unique rocket launcher that creates a cloud of poison on impact.  Potentially really useful for the smokescreen effect, so enemies can't even shoot me back...  but I ended up leaving it behind for the Micro Launcher.  I decided that for AoLT, I should take the weapon that holds more ammo.

Tormuse, level 14 Marine, defeated

congrats on the win - i can't get anywhere with the marine and consider technician to be the easiest, so even more impressive you were able to clear cri laboratories with a marine build

\o/

What about posting videos of some of your performances ?
I'd have been curious to watch such an UV game, especially as AoLT.

I did try streaming a game once, but the framerate was so low, it was unwatchable...  :(  though someone gave tips on improving performance, so I might try that again.  (For one thing, OBS was trying to increase the resolution output, which was a huge waste of processor time;  I've since figured out how to downgrade those settings)  Maybe I'll try broadcasting again next week or something.  :)

Welp. My hopes of beating UV before Tormuse have officially been shattered. :)
