-- General ---------------------------------------------------

 Before him 4397 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 4159 of those were killed.
 26 of those were killed by something unknown.
 69 didn't read the thermonuclear bomb manual.
 And 126 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 Some rumours though, say that the Cyberdemon was killed already!
 Is he immortal? 17 souls claim to have killed him...
 2 sacrificed itself for the good of mankind.
 14 killed the bastard and survived.
 1 showed that it can outsmart hell itself.

Fireangel + focused double shotty is pretty damn awesome. This victory marred somewhat by playing with the shambler bug a bit hoping for a nano pack for a plasmatic shotgun. Still, I don't consider it to be too cheat-y since I spent a metric fuckton of shells on each one and 2/3 of the major rewards were schematics. I YAAM'd every level except for the hellgate which I skipped completely. Kind of regretful but whatever. City of skulls was quite easy but used up a lot of shells, there was a scary point in hell where I was down to 80 shells left or something, but a few sergeants + arch-viles later I was back in the game. Used one of the CoS rewards to completely destroy the mortuary in a manner that I can only describe as absurd.

Someday I will fulfill my dream of playing a fireangel build with a plasmatic double shotgun. Maybe on AoSh N! which I am trying out next. Must admit I am a bit worried that fireangel will not be nearly as effective with the nightmare speed boost but we'll see. I can always take extra finesse + hellrunner later on to compensate.

Bug Reports / Error message on barrel lever
« on: May 05, 2011, 09:09 »
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Timestamp   : 5/5/2011 11:05:41
Error level : ERROR
Message     : Lua hook OnUse failed!

Hook name     : beings[lever_explode].OnUse
Error message : Lua error : lua\core.lua:143: Object at parameter 1 has no __ptr!
----------------------------------------------------------------------

I suspect it has something to do with the fact that the offending lever was destroyed by its own effects.

Bug Reports / Cannot cock plasmatic combat shotgun
« on: April 29, 2011, 23:03 »
Was forced to plasmify combat shotty instead of double shotty because I couldn't find an unmodded double shotty in time. Was horrified to discover that attempting to pump a new round resulted in 'This weapon cannot be manually reloaded'. The only way to fire again was to actually move somewhere. This bug ended up killing me in the end. Please crush it with prejudice thanks.

edit - seems like this is probably an issue with nano-modded combat shotties in general, not specifically plasmatic.

Discussion / Why was exp for lever enemies removed?
« on: April 11, 2011, 11:20 »
Doesn't make much sense to me. Is it just so that these levers are unequivocally bad? I feel cheated now when I pull one of these, since at least beforehand if I survived I got something out of it.

edit - Well now I feel dumb... checked recent posts to see that someone literally just posted about this topic in another thread. Sorry!

After having spent some time now trying to bridge the gap between UV and N! I've got to say that nightmare is an entirely different animal. The hardest thing for me was to learn when I should cut my losses and get the fuck off the level, since I'm somewhat of a completionist at heart. Intuition 1 and 2 are EXTREMELY powerful in this mode, and go well with my early game strategy of eagle eye + son of a bitch for killing things fast with a chaingun/plasma rifle. I was going to spring for cateye but I was doing so much running away that I figured I would be better served with defensive traits. Intuition 1 in particular was useful because invincibility globes spawn fairly frequently on N! and I could beeline straight toward them and find the stairs with relative ease. Most of my progress this round I attribute to coasting through while invincible. I had three arachnotron caves in a row and I would have been atomized if I wasnt...

In conclusion, nightmare is fucking nuts but I think I'm starting to get a feel for it. Here's hoping my next post is one of success!

Too tired for a full rundown right now. Will just say that cateye build is underrated and the assault rifle is amazing. Gatekeeper diamond was totally unexpected, won mainly due to finding an invincibility very close to the stairs.

Played this run like a weaker AoB. Was lucky enough with items + powerups to be able to kill most of the enemies before the hellgate. The extra experience was amazingly helpful... never expected to reach a master trait. I knew the game was mine to win when i found the nuke, but I didn't even end up needing to use it... there was a berserk pack right next to the stairs. Ended up with a pretty sweet kill rate considering the nature of the challenge. I cannot imagine doing this without the combat knife/chainsword... I think I'll leave the platinum alone.

--------------------------------------------------------------

After several stupid deaths finally managed to pull this one off! Despite (or because of?) the unrelenting tension I had a real blast. I went for an ammochain build in order to save inventory space for all the supplies I would need such as enviro-packs, arena masters's staff, chainsaw and such.

I always have a difficult time in the early game of an ammochain build... ironically I almost exclusively use combat shotguns and rocket launchers until I get ammochain. An assault rifle would solve my accuracy problems but in a UV game by the time you get 3 agility mods you already have a plasma rifle to pimp out.

Of course once I hit ammochain with an A2 plasma rifle things became much simpler. I found a ton of mods over the course of the game and managed to make some really sweet gear, including that huge unwieldy BFG and a power-agility-bulk modded red armor that lasted me from the mid game until the mortuary. My first bulk and two power mods went straight onto my chainsaw to ensure that I would have a double chainsaw for the Angel of Death. With that thing and berserker trait the unholy cathedral didn't stand a chance.

The deadliest moment in the run occurred in the lava pits. I had only found one enviro-pack the entire game, and despite coasting in with invincibility i wasn't able to make it all the way across before it ran out. Within one turn I was at 40% health, standing on lava with no protection with 2 revenants sizing me up, so I crossed my fingers and used a phase shift. The shift did get me out of harms way but it stuck me on one of the islands on the left side of the map, with no environment packs and surrounded by lava. I did have a homing phase but I was so dead set on getting this badge I would rather have died than give up. I spent several dozen turns firing my plasma rifle off screen in hopes of softening/killing the revenants and I was discouraged because I couldn't hear any pain screams but it seems that they were just too far away to hear. Ran across the whole field of lava burning a good portion of my large medpacks and there was only one seriously wounded revenant left. Once I got to the nearest enviro-pack I was set, and the lava elemental went down without a hitch.

The silliest moment in the game happened at the very end. I was confident enough to want to try for a full win for the first time ever, but I didn't know if the nuclear BFG nuke was immediate or not... instead of looking it up on the wiki I just used the lava element and triggered the nuke only to find that it was indeed timed. Doh! In the 10 seconds before the nuke went off I went ballistic on the Cyberdemon with my uber BFG for the standard win.

Anyway, woohoo! Sorry if the wall of text is a little excessive. god DAMN this game owns.

The only real difficulty in these runs is making it to the Chained Court. After that point i think I ran out of berserk exactly once and got it back within 50 tense turns. Pain elemental caves turn from horrible nightmares to a source of more than enough berserk to last through the game (if you have vampyre anyway). I hung out in one of those caves for a really long time building up shitloads and shitloads of berserk while keeping my health topped up to 200%.

High-difficulty AoB seems to present a very difficult balancing problem. On the one side, the current mechanics for berserking make late-game AoB's significantly overpowered, but a non-berserking player is basically completely doomed unless he manages to quickly start zerking again.

It's worth noting that I didn't get the Longinus Spear... To be honest I was so intent on making it down as fast as possible that I completely forgot about it until I had already passed the entrance floor. Didn't seem to make a difference in the long run though, chainsaw w/ double damage is effective enough already.

What can I say? UV Haste is hard enough without having to kill everything, this game was tense as shit. Beelined straight for a cateye build with EE first so I could rely on my chainguns. The game got a lot less tense when I got Intuition 2, but still had a close call at one point with 3 arch-viles and a revenant on-screen. They ate my hellwave pack. 8)

It was somewhat of a balancing act between killing them offscreen and conserving ammo, but for the most part there were plenty of cells to go around. Overall this is probably the toughest challenge I've pulled off so far, so I'm pretty pleased.

      -- General ---------------------------------------------------
       
       Before him 2926 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
       2765 of those were killed.
       20 of those were killed by something unknown.
       49 didn't read the thermonuclear bomb manual.
       And 82 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.
       
       Some rumours though, say that the Cyberdemon was killed already!
       Is he immortal? 10 souls claim to have killed him...
       1 sacrificed itself for the good of mankind.
       9 killed the bastard and survived.

I opted for speedloaders and SoB over Gun Kata for this run and it worked out very nicely. Pistols become serious powerhouses as you pile on the traits. Was originally aiming for a 100% game but some really sticky situations in phobos hell discouraged me from that idea quickly. There were only a couple moments where my character was in serious danger, and I now find UV Hell's Arena to be easier on marksmanship runs than with a combat shotty to the point that I can clear the whole thing taking at most two or three hits. Will probably be trying UV shotty or Nightmare max carnage for my next challenge.
