[1.5a|I|Ma|YASD] Dual Inferno with Sylph
« on: September 16, 2022, 19:39 »

So, much like last week, I streamed myself playing JH along with Sylph, who was playing at the same time with the same random number seed...  this time at the newly introduced Inferno difficulty level!  :)  (My first time attempting it!)  :D

I played with a Survivor build, while Sylph played with an Entrenchment build.  Neither of us survived, though Sylph got a little further than me.  The difficulty just ramped up more quickly than either of us were prepared for, I guess.  The nice part is that this means you get more experience earlier, (if you can survive)  :P  but it's gonna take some practice and effort to make any headway in this difficulty, I think.

Anyway, here's the video from my perspective...

...and here's Sylph's perspective.

He survived for 8498 turns.
The run time was 3h 6m 2s.

Well, *I* was prepared for it!!! Obviously the only reason I managed to clock less deaths / further progress was a HELL of a lot more experience than you on inferno!
But if I'm honest I'm used to the way difficulty ramps up. In fact, shortly before this stream I was chatting in discord about how inferno gets un-winnable for most skills in mid-late europa!!!
There are certainly character builds that can play around it, much like apocalypse, but my gut tells me that inferno will never be a place for all builds/classes, unless it's changed. :)

Great run last night, I had tons of fun! Part of the reason I wanted to stick to the same class/build when I originally suggested the 'co-op' concept was so that a death could easily be 'ressed' by the other player, preventing exactly what happened when you died here (don't want to continue with a different character). Still, it was great exploring levels together, and I think it worked very well in its own way!

Congratulations on a great romp through inferno!
