[0.8.6|U|AoV|Ma|10|YASD] Almost got 'em
« on: December 26, 2019, 01:27 »

This is the closest I've come to winning at Angel of Vampirism.  The Summoner was almost dead, but his summons swarmed me.  I probably should have used one of the Krak grenades on the Archreavers, but I was so close to victory, I decided to just keep drilling the Summoner with the assault rifle to maximize the benefit of Sustained Fire trait.  I managed to come into Precipice of Defeat with full health and full fury, ready for a shot of adrenaline, but the enemies never caused me enough pain to warrant using it; they either whittled away at me slowly, or my health ticked down, as I ran around the map, trying to find where the Summoner teleported to.  (Which he did twice!  Grrr!)

Anyway, this was mostly a stairdive, sometimes deviating when I felt like I could get away with it.  My strategy varied, sometimes charging headlong into battle to keep my health up, but if it reached close to 25, I played more slowly and cautiously.  It doesn't tick down below 25, so it's worth playing it safe in those circumstances.

I had some pretty good supplies at the end, including four Krak grenades, so I thought I had a good shot of winning this one.  Oh well...  at least that last Bronze badge was enough to unlock the other playing modes.  Maybe I can see what this "New York Reload" thing is about.  :)

EDIT:  Aww, man...  I just looked up the achievement listing for completing AoV on Hard mode and it is the least acquired achievement at 0.2%.  I missed out on a very impressive win.  :(

Oof, that's a shame but an impressive feat getting there at all!

impressive run indeed, i can't get past callisto on AoV

did you find a plasma shotgun at all? with a p-mod (or maybe two?) you should be able to oneshot archreavers when they're at 100% range

I'm pretty sure I found a plasma shotgun, but sticking with the arsenal I had was preferable anyway.  Closing to 100% range of an Archreaver when there's no cover would have been a sure way to die.

Dodging feels really weak in Jupiter Hell. In DRL it felt like I had a real chance to actually dodge my way to cover, especially with Hellrunner. In Jupiter Hell it feels more like if I'm caught in the open I'm just SOL.

Am I imagining this? Tormuse, you have way more experience than me. What's your thoughts?

It's not a question of imagination, your precise chances to dodge are in the status bar. Note that contrary to DRL the direction of movement doesn't matter.

What Kornel said.  No more zig-zagging everywhere to dodge enemy fire.  :P
