This. Was. Awesome!  The last time that I played A100 was sooo long ago, and even then, it was with MAc.  I've not really tried to do a pistol run on A100, let alone a single pistol run.

The early game was tough, because I did not beeline to MSs, taking two levels of WK in between to build my Stormbolter Pistol that saw action all through from dlev 15.  For the early game, I was relying on first the Shotgun and then the Combat Shotgun when it appeared.  The tactical boots are still my favourite for their added speed and dodge -- you can see the Scout in me showing up once again.

Once I had MSs, it started to become more comfortable.  What really made it much less taxing was the investment in Intx2 -- that really made the difference for the Sharpshootin' Technician.  =D

SoGx5 is quite ridiculous, as noted by many.  I was knocking back almost everyone all the time.  Since they kept getting knocked out of my LOS, I had to keep re-aiming, which was a little on the annoying side.

A relatively early Onyx pack followed by a Nano pack made me decide to assemble the Cybernano Armour, a most worthy choice since I was literally walking around in an armour that eats 8 points of damage without getting destroyed.  Talk about a walking fortress!

Demolition ammo assembly on a pistol I found was done to make sure that I could bust holes in walls without wasting two slots of inventory (one for the Rocket Launcher, one for the rockets).  The place was literally crawling with mods, so I just assembled any random thing that I could.

I kept the Butcher's Cleaver for those rare moments that I could kill 'em Mancubi with melee to level up, but I think I might have just successfully done that once or at most twice.  The RNG tempted me with the GCB, but really my bulk-modded Stormbolter Pistol was adequate.

Why bulk-modded?  I wanted it to have an even number of shots before reloading (6 times vs 4 -- quite a difference).

Really though, once the build got going, everyone had to fall to my superior 10mm weapon.  There were at least three times where I was spawned in a room with a cluster of Viles and Mancubi/Barons/Revenants, and all I did was just spam the fire button and reloading.  Before long, all of them were dead.  I took a lot of damage when I started moving though, because all that armour is just so bloody heavy.

That said, I think that if I want to use the MSs build for AoMr, I might need to get used to the fact that I am not going to get advanced assemblies for use.  That extra level or two of WK in between costs a lot in terms of actual killing for the XP.

Anyway, first A100 for the new release.  Huzzah!  =D

So horrible.  I was running away from a demon cave, and the closest stairs were the Halls of Carnage.  I thought to myself, "okay, let's take a gamble".  I went through it, managed to convince a former sergeant to blast the door open for me in the centre, which released a whole bunch of Lost Souls.  Fine, I couldn't take 'em out, so I moved back, standing such that the Lost Souls were between me and the Sergeants.  Boom!  Lost Souls died, cool!  I hurry through to that Supercharge, and lured the Sergeant to shoot at the door behind me.  The loser kept failing to blast the damn thing open.  After a while, success!

I ran through, dodged a demon, and as I was navigating that little maze, got trapped between two demons and a Hell Knight in the north.  I was like, okay, let's hope the Hell Knight kills everything around me.  I put on the Red Armour, slap on a Power mod and chugged med packs like no man's business.  The Hell Knight managed to kill the demon closest to him, and then moved in to claw me to death.

...

Note to self: HoC is just hell for AoPc.

Holy cow!  I was trying to do the Pacifism run with Scout because of the added speed.  But then I realised, power-ups are the lifeblood for AoPc, and so Marine it was, and as a Marine, I won.

I've not played AoPc in a while, so this is a really nice win for a change.  =)

Okay, so I started on this AoB run last night just for fun.  It felt... different from the last time I played AoB.  But anyway, some weird things about this run:
  • I accidentally skipped the UC, so no LS for me.  =(
  • I found a nano pack earlier and slapped it on a red armour intending to make it powered, but I accidentally got it completely destroyed.  =(
  • In consolation, I had an awesome Ballistic Phaseshift Armour that helped with the Shotgunner problem.  =)
  • Spider's Lair was a joke -- I went in invulnerable and just massacred 'em
  • Smacking Spidey with only a Chainsaw was quite painful.  I had to let loose the thermie in the end.
And now, to do AoMr.  I think I will just go straight to UV (and die a lot of times) and try with the MSs master trait.

Started on this to try out the Sharpshooter build for my AoMr win, had to save in between because I suddenly realised just how late it was and I was still in the office.  Anyway, a lucky invulnerability before the wall and with four phase devices, I just had to try my luck.  I didn't fire that many shots, but was basically dancing about and letting the Barons and Knights shoot each other to oblivion.  I used up my medpacks when the invulnerability ran out and let the three Knights take out the lone Baron.  By then I had a nice position and could stop running/dancing and just kill the Knights one by one before phasing out.

Oh, and why do I not have the Backpack?  The !@#$% Barons blew it apart.  =(

Just thought I'd share this hilarious Brick Silver badge.

So... old timers would realise that it has been a long while since I last posted a mortem -- that's because I didn't really have much time to play my favourite game (or any game for that matter).  But tonight was special.  I asked Chessa on #chaosforge whether to play Serious Sam or DoomRL, and she graciously said DoomRL.  And so, AoSh game it is (I've not played as a shotgunner much).

Gosh... where do I begin?  Ever since the class-change, I didn't really play much, and the few times that I helped test the game, it was always as a Scout, hardly ever a Marine.  But since the Marine class was the one with MAD, it had to be the one I wanted to go for in AoSh.  Yeah, I'm old school.

Hell's Arena was fairly straightforward with shotguns -- no fuss.  Then the Double Shotgun became my BFF all the way to hell.  Back in the ol' days where we could get a Combat Shotgun earlier, that had always been my mainstay whenever I played as a shotgunner, leaving the Double Shotgun behind due to its short range.  But this time round, the Double Shotgun truly shined given that many of the levels were claustrophobic in nature.

I crushed the Chained Court, and made a Tactical Armour because I hadn't found the Steel Boots yet.  Then some time later, some Tactical Boots were made.  The trait choices at this point was Rel->Rel->SM->Bad.  I had to choose between another level of Bad to hit 200% max or something else -- I chose TaN instead because realistically, I wasn't going to dodge everything that was coming my way, so non-degrading HP of 150% is more than enough for me.  Since I was wearing Tactical Armour which afforded no passive defense whatsoever, TaN seemed like a better choice.  Then I got my MAD as planned and felt awesome, killing things quickly with my trusty Double Shotgun which I eventually modded with a Tech mod.

Tackling the Phobos Anomaly with Tactical Armour + Boots was weird -- charged in all the way, turned around with Double Shotgun and blasted holes in the Lost Souls et al, then finished off the Bruiser Brothers in what felt like an incredibly short time.  One random cave brought up a Nano mod, something that I hadn't even seen forever.  I asked around #chaosforge, and the suggestion was Powered Armour of some sort.  I thought "gee, that's cool, let's do Powered Red Armour, now if there's a Power mod somewhere" and lo and behold there was one hiding in a corner on the same floor.  O.O  So the Red Powered Armour was made.  I didn't really wear it much because I liked my Tactical Gear which gave me more dodge and speed, things that I was more used to during the times I played as a Scout.

Hell's Armoury was straightforward enough, and the Shambler said good bye to my Double Shotgun rather quickly.  Halls of Carnage was straightforward for a shotgunner, and by the time I was done, I had like 8 to 9 stacks of shells.  Remember this number.

Then I entered the City of Skulls.  I unleashed the horrors within, and was immediately mobbed.  I lost my lovely Tactical Armour fast and used a couple of large med packs before I realised it was futile.  One phase device later, I was south of the mess and quickly put on my Bulk-modded Medical Armour.  That saved my butt as I faced the horrors with my Double Shotgun.  The City was finally cleared, and I scavenged whatever was left and got out into a cave level before descending into the Spider's Lair, which I cleared with some patience.  A level later, the Berserker Armour was found and discarded, and the fight against Cybie was a joke because I was wearing my Powered Red Armour.

By the time I got to the Vaults, I realised that I had a serious ammo problem -- I was down to my last two stacks of shells.  I kept my cool, unlocked the vaults, and blasted as many of the Barons as I could.  Thankfully there was a shell box available, and I grabbed an Assault Shotgun to replace my Combat Shotgun, which was really not seeing much use at this point.  At the end of the Vaults, I had only 126 shells.  I had to make a painful decision: avoid YAAM to do a normal win.  I had the Nuclear Plasma Rilfe from the Spider's Lair -- that's a free win if you ask me, so from then on, I played the coward's game, running down the stairs as much as I could.

And then I met the Spider Mastermind and nuked her to hell and back.

Damn, first win for 0.9.9.6.  =)

Back when I was actively playing DoomRL, I used to keep a signature that looked like this: [7/2/0/0/0]

--------------------------------------------------------------
After playing on HMP and dying once too often, I decided to go for something simple -- MVm run with only fists.  And then the RNG kept tempting me to do a pistol run, first with the offering of the GCB, then the Anti-Freak Jackal.  Ended up in HoC, and charged through before realising that... I didn't have any way of opening the doors.  Went back to kill some sarges and pry the shotgun from their dead cold fingers to blast holes in the doors, only to realise I forgot to pick up the ammo...

Soon, I amassed enough Homing Phase Devices to just slip past the last 3 to 4 levels before nuking Cybie.  First win in a while, on ITYTD too, but hey, a win is a win.

;-)

PS: I would like to note that this is also the first and only ITYTD game I've played on 0.9.9.4 so far.  O.O

To be had, HMP is not a difficulty level that I have played before for any period of time.  But after staring at my badge count and wondering why I still don't have that one more silver badge to advance in rank, I decided to AoMC it.  HNTR was getting to be a bit limiting in terms of how many clevs you can get, and since it was AoMC, perhaps it was a good thing to try it on HMP then.

Everything went pretty well, including clearing the Wall.  By the time I got to Hell's Armoury, I had MAc and had assembled my Gatling Gun -- pretty impossible to die now, right?

Feeling gung-ho, I released the Shambler, and found the lever still there.  No wait... why is the lever still there?  That made no sense.  Unleashed a second one.  Wee~!  Killed them both eventually, but one of them got to me and took my health down to 36%.

And that's when things went awry.

Feeling a tad too cocky, I unleashed yet a third one.  Kept on firing my Gatling Gun to the side.  'F', 'Enter', 'F', 'Enter', 'F', 'Enter', 'F', 'Enter', 'F', 'Enter' OHSHI-

The shambler fires! You are hit! You die!... Press <Enter>...

Next time, I will pay a little more attention damnit.

Did I mention how much I dislike playing N!?  Anyway after random deaths for AoPc on N! done in between AoMr/AoMC runs, the RNG decided to be merciful and allowed me to win this one.

Pretty standard AoPc "run-like-hell-and-don't-stop" run, and by the time I got to Cybie, I was completely naked.  Didn't really know how I survived to tell the tale.  The History didn't note that I angel-armed a level that I had the Trigun with Invuln on, but I suppose that's easy enough to deduce from the drop in HP.

So now I have one Platinum badge, am still missing a Silver one to rise in rank.  Blech.

Discussion / Power-Up Duration Tracking
« on: July 05, 2011, 19:08 »
So according to a discussion on #chaosforge, the "time duration" for power-ups like Invulnerability, Berserk and Environment protection are not actually based on in-game time but based on in-game action.  This is a little unintuitive, since one would think that in-game "time" would be a more universal metric for determining an action as opposed to the meta-concept of an "action" taken by the player.

So, I'm thinking that these power-ups should have their duration clamped to an in-game time amount instead, so that bonuses from attack speed, weapon swap, movement speed can all factor in positively in "prolonging" the power up in terms of number of performable player actions.

Of course there are some issues on this being overpowered.  I was thinking that for the first pick up of the power-up, we add some fixed duration to the effect, and subsequent power-ups extend the time left by a fractional amount.  This way, we provide a diminishing returns scenario so that the consecutive consumption of the various power-ups will not extend the actual time duration of the power-up indefinitely.

What do yinz think?

The one thing about A100 is that I just can't find the time and stamina to sit there and play non-stop for all 100 levels -- this results in the 5 save points here, roughly once every 20-ish levels or when the fatigue sets in.  I wanted to build more armour-type assemblies, but that power armour I built precluded anything, though having a regenerating suit of 8-armour is awesome.  Couple this with the hyperblaster, I'm mostly unkillable.

Early game was more shotgun based, as you can tell by the SM hidden among my trait selection.  That tactical shotgun helped me clear the way up until I got my MAC.  The micro launcher is useful as a breeching device, creating the much needed holes that are necessary some times to get through the terrain.  I actually had an early laser rifle just about the time I got my MAC, but as you can see, I eventually traded up to the hyperblaster.

Of all the assemblies used so far, those that stayed with me to the end were (surprise surprise) the micro launcher, tactical boots and power armour.

All in all, a very fun-filled game, much different from the old A100 that we once knew.  And it is for the reason of these new stuff that happens in levels that make it such that I cannot play it non-stop for 5 hours to complete it.
