It looks like N! AoMs is TOTALLY dependent on whether there are monsters in your close vicinity to pass through. My best distance so far was Hell Armory where I have "overslept" a rezzed revenant and it blasted me all my cover and almost into the lava. This time I was already shredded with an unloaded shotgun when I foolishly stepped out of my cover to lay a fire line - oh yeah, luckily I had an exit right beside, but the next level wasn't any better. Whoops. Actually I hate when the game can't let you aim with an empty weapon, I am too often hitting F then instead of aiming I had my face stuck out into the open - yes, with no ammo to fire, to add insult to injury. And AoMC doesn't tolerate such mistakes. But in this run I have earned my first Hell Arena Pwnage medal, so I decided to share it along with my thoughts. Probably I have reached my current ceiling in DoomRL, and UV starts looking like... hum, a sort of easy going, so I maybe stop playing for a while. However, these quarantine measures all over the world this while might not last too long so you people won't miss me XDDD

Post Mortem / [U|AoMC+AoI|96%|YAVP] Impatience is a sin
« on: April 02, 2020, 03:24 »
Actually this is my first finished AoI, most ended up with a wipe somewhere around Phobos lv6/7, but this is actually my first try on UV, the rest were on N!. Hah. AoMC really makes all shooting challenges easier, especially if you scrabble enough XP for Cateye. The primary problem with N! is if you don't clear up corpses, you eventually get screwed with constant respawn of enemies, making say Military Base either a real chore or a deathtrap, even with MCe. But the real best feature available in AoMC is - Rocket Jump! You jump, and everyone just flies outwards, thinning the crowd.

This run, however, was pretty remarkable with what I could find over the course of the game - a GCB, I even thought about taking levels in SoG specifically for that gun, a nano pack (BAD AoI, BAD BOY! Otherwise I'd prefer a nanomachic wep instead of immediately assembling a power armor), an assault shotty BEFORE Military Base (yay!), and a phaseshift boots - a rare thing to find, really. But, I've mised YAAM alreadyat the entrance, so... hum, I maybe should have skipped some enemies together with earning a better badge of untouchable. Apparently I can't behave to acquire even a medal, let alone a cross, maybe playing AoI+AoMC on N! would eventually train me to the point when I would be able to acquire them.

Well, basically yet another "first angelic" post over there. Spent about 180 tries with about 70 ending with a mortem before finally getting some nice invulnerabilities chained long enough to last until Dis. Of course was stupid and impatient enough to spend a nuke before meeting Spidey, although I did not believe I'd get a white sphere at lv7 to try a full win. Also was impatient enough to not earn me her brain, that would be kinda worth it I believe - especially with a character that excels at cornershooting. But, one mistap of F and I was pummeled almost to death, thankfully I had my red armor on to not get killed. And, BOY how I like when I get tossed around while invulnerable and just LAUGH at mancubi, viles, trons and former commandoes as they get OBLITERATED by friendly fire. Ha, ha, ha.

Not being the brightest mind over there, I tried to perform an UV AoPc run for several hours, the best attempt ending at Anomaly with BBs getting me rekt with ease. Maybe I can't just pass them properly, and should use another tactics, but I then decided to go for luck-based approach with AoOC. This game ended up being very lucky with level 7 stairs being close enough after having to use a homie (yay! A homie in reach in AoPc!) on level 6 vs a ton of arachnotrons. Then of course it went BAM. I wonder if someone can actually to a full win with AoPc? Also having no benefit with UV over HNTR for AoPc is kinda strange. Also got a gold badge outta this run - nice.

Got some free time while being on a sick leave, coupled with all-over closing of stuffs, uncovered DoomrL after another hiatus - found out my hands and brain still have wires optimised for this! Checked my badges, found that I'm missing a Marksman Platinum - but I'm very fond of pistols in 0997, thus went for it. After about twenty tries of fruitless Sereging that badge, with best try ending at Hell lv5 with three packs around the start, and the only phase device to drop me right between them... I went with normal way, spent another twenty tries bootstrapping to either Int-Int or SoG3, failed all of them and cried myself to sleep. Next morning things turned to my favor, and I've got me a combat pistol at Deimos5, and a real ton of 10mm chains to supply my 2d4 "B" pistol with power needed to faceroll barons and pain elementals. Got two caves of spiders back to back, but with a P-red they were somewhat easy, although it took a full chain to wreck em all. Had no nukes, but a homie and an invulnerability on Hell7 - this could as well be a full win should the RNG give me one. Hum. Anyway I'm happy.

Nightmare! / [N!|AoMC|92%|YAVP] How come I didn't PWN?
« on: September 06, 2018, 13:38 »
Well, N! is frikking stressful. Not just you're unable to save, but monsters replenish their ranks with tremendous speed. And, is it just me, or N! respawn speed increases over time? The run was never decided won, once I managed to survive with 1HP left (2%) vs a mancubus, wiped him for good then ate a medkit and went onward. But, I was granted a single piece of equipment that pretty much carried me through Hell (albeit as a support device) - the ever-desired Plasma Shotgun. Dam, it was a lifesaver in the Mortuary, which I cleared well and tidy as a result, while not having access to that nuclear BFG. For some reason a homing phase device decided to land me on top left set of stairs instead of top right where BFG rests, so I had to wade through a lot and a real lot of enemies. I managed to stockpile a really big set of weapons and ammo off them formers, but an ever-increasing stream of mancubi, revenants and viles cut me out of that pile of phat lewt so I eventually ran out of every kind of ammo - except rockets, as I had a revenant in my rear periodically reviving and supplying me with rockets. I managed to cut me out of an avalance of barons and hell knights with about 20 rockets, and ran out of them as well - but a former sergeant was kind enough to not get plasmated, so I grabbed all the shells he donated and played wall of force. Sadly, with a tac and no Rel the force wasn't enough to cover all sides, so while I was fighting the upper left, a former managed to sneak up on me from below, dropping me to 38% and damaging me my red armor. I blasted him with whatever that remained in my ever-unloaded tac shotty, looted his plasmagun and FINALLY managed to touch the ammo - yaaaay, back to full power! BLAST'EM! Then it was rather simple, with AoMC up MY sleeve and about 1000 power cells from all sources, I was wrecking any single monster with a volley of plasma bolts then a cleanup with shotty - rest in pieces, har har. That battle lasted me a good deal of 40 minutes of careful evaluation of what can shoot me and what can't, and one mistake could easily be the end.

Here, behold the mighty pile of loot:
Code: [Select]
There is a chaingun (1d6)x4 [40/40] lying here.                               
 There is a plasma rifle (1d7)x6 [0/40] lying here.

Should have pressed F10 I think - colored, it looks a whole lot better.

Overall, the run was pretty fruitless - a SINGLE A-pack, three P-packs (first on lv17 went into a tac shotty, two more on BFG and plasma shotty, just in case), 4 or so bulk and a slew of tech packs, one vest, a plasma shotgun, and that's ALL. Dam, Hell, maybe you should be a lil more generous next time? And this with all levels walked through - I didn't bother with YAAMing, after all it's Nightmare! and my first relatively successful run (there was another but I went to Halls of Carnage and N! halls have nightmare cacos that fried my doomguy, so this time I skipped it), just finishing is already good enough.

And... how come I didn't get Hell Arena Pwnage badge? What hit me when I wasn't looking? I thought I did get it this time.

Post Mortem / [U|AoSh|92%|YAVP] Gatekeeper Diamond and out of ammo
« on: September 06, 2018, 00:15 »
First, I wished this to be a YAAM, but had to flee a caco cave at lv19, thankfully started a few steps away from the stairs. Skipping a few, no need to wipe everything, so I went to Mortuary - hum, no, too hot, I tapped a homie and ended up in a mob, but jumping down the stairs saved my ass from being ripped apart. Then I've got two pain elem caves in a row at 22 and 23, with measly two packs of shells total. But I managed to keep one box intact for Spidey.

Otherwise, the game was smooth at first, to my amusement I have found that Shottyman and Double Shotty allows me to tackle them nightmare demons in Phobos Lab without too much hassle, even if they don't get full blast in their face. I tried the same in Hell's Armory, but had to chew medpacks like candies while that brute decided to constantly fire at me at wrong moments. It also shone in Abyssal Planes, even if that agony elemental had a ton of HP and some armor, everything else got wiped out, the best property of shotguns :P I wish I'd build me an elephant gun, but sort of fumbled early, then wanted to wait for WK2, then was in a distress and made a FDS/P instead, however that puppy was a lifesaver at the very next level, with as few as 4x15 walkable squares and two BV packs right off the bat.

The funniest thing was Hell lv1 (also lv17) with "You need to run", and 0.33s walking speed with phaseshift/A and tac boots with HR2. I was able to sprint, wipe everyone then get almost to the start of the level to collect ammo. The hardest encounter was Spider's Lair, they triple-teleported me when I was finally at a cornershooting position, and that Medical Powerarmor which I managed to strip off a former commando at 8% was the ultimate heal that allowed me to survive (I had 4HP left when hunting for the last arachnotron), then a reward supercharge allowed me to continue. Sadly, missed Mastermind Brain by a single move in the middle of a fight, show have covered self. Well, maybe next time.

And finally, the GK Diamond was a result of a very lucky phase into the middle of the level and spamfiring from a tac shotty first into that door on the left, then into bruisers on the right. The Cyberdemon is all about timing, but firing a double from 2 squares away right after he throws a rocket is easy with huge runspeed.

Boy how does AoMC make everything easier! First I ran a HNTR run with these settings, even managed a YAFW by nuking JC, but it seems my Doomguy is kinda bloothirsty, so I went onward to UV. Lost once in CC due to two barons coming at me at once, and me failing to grab a zerk to get protection (it doesn't heal you but it still makes you resistant), then rolled an amazingly good set of enemies on lv2, and overall a HUGE amount of rare stuff helpful everywhere, Literally made me sort of cakewalk the entire game, once I landed the MCe. Sadly, no phases in Phobos so I had to tackle Anomaly with a rocketjump - this time forward, anyway those medkits and globes are of zero help on AoMs, landed just outside the wall, so was safe from direct shooting, and picked all of stuff then both bruisers from pretty much afar. Either Hell's Armory or a vault in Phobos provided me wih a duelist armor, which got modded into APT eventually and kept until the end, Armory dropped me a plasma schematic (OW, should have tried better to assemble it earlier!) and a nano pack (really a gift from God! This spells "HELL, NOW YOU WILL GET LOOSE!" harder than any BFG!), which, with a single level of Whizkid I managed to scrounge back then (I still wanted HR/HR/DM before Cybie) rested on a plasma rifle with two bulk packs.

The Hell went quite smoothly. With gained WK2 I've built me a tac/A boots, a duelist armor with A and with two levels of Hellrunner I was moving at incredible 0.33s/step, I even had to hold my steps for UC to let CHARGING LOST SOULS catch up to me to whack them one at a time! Let alone them demons. I have decided to prepare a B-modded knife just for the whacks in UC, that thing really helped in making bigger holes in Angel of Death, I didn't even break sweat throwing those knives. One nice thing, AoD dies before your missile lands to the floor, so if you use a modded knife to finish him, you'll retain it. So I kept the Scythe, just in case - don't recall swinging it tho. The Vaults awarded me with Enviroboots - YAAAAY, no need to use envirosuits and sweating in Lava Pits that you might miss that carriable invulnerability! The Mortuary - I went in with a P-modded BFG, a B2N1 plasmagun and a ton of cells from previous arachnotron cave, and went left as there were visible viles. Cleared there, blasting several hundred power cells down the drain, then cautiously proceeded right, picking out any stragglers with plasma gun and whacking them en masse with BFG. Ran out of cells there, but not before picking a nuke-BFG AND wrecking all viles, so went with plasma, also picking last B-pack to make a nanomanufacture plasmagun. Hell level 7 had a Baron don a Medical Powerarmor, nearly bashed it into pieces before that brute went down, and Deimos level 7 had me a GCB - a ridiculous AoMC whacking gun, esp if you'd decide to invest in SoG. So I've tried to get Grammaton Cleric Cross, and succeed in a very weird manner - GCB was in my offhand, still I've got it awarded.

I wonder tho, should I have tried nuking the Mastermind with GCB in hand to get that cross, then whack JC (I believe I'd easily put him out of misery, esp with Azrael's in hand and Angelic on top - 4 hits and he'd be history) to have a full win, or would it not grant me that medal?

And finally, got Conqueror despite not getting that backpack, but really killing everything else on the level. You can see it spells in mortem "he fled Containment Area". I really don't like the trap in there, on UV it has about 8 barons and an archvile, and without a phase or another means of getting away (I dropped the combat translocator in favor for more ammo for chaingun, and didn't get phases until next level) I would likely get toasted. But the game said I completed it, and awarded me a conqueror badge. :D

After a successful Ao100 run with pistols I have decided to start tackling weapon challenges. Of course, started with AoMr, as I've got quite some experience with them pistols. First run went decent up to somewhere like lv14, with a P-modded combat pistol, and then all of a sudden I've got killed, cornered or something. That hurt! Several more tries, and I have done it with a blaze.

I wonder if I should have used Fin-Fin-WK instead of both spending levels to Int-Int and SoB-SoB. But as I have managed to find in Ao100, knockback rules, but you need to hit stuff to protect yourself with knockback. So I ended up with a starting P-modded pistol (with a backup of B-modded "really starting" pistol hanging in there in case this one would overheat or something), an ammo chain, and a powered red armor fresh from Hell's Armory. Lucky find I say, beats combat pistol in usefulness. You WILL get hit in Hell, regardless of what you do, except for maybe 2Dev or who won N! damageless. And there, weapons matter little, armor matters a lot.

One good thing I had is jump at Mortuary with a homie and about 20 turns of invulnerability, that was even enough to wreck a couple of viles that went right after me - two or three, still once anything fatter started appearing, I went outside. That device allowed me to tackle JC - and with an ordinary pistol, and without sufficient back-up, this was quite an ordeal. Good thing that if you shoot at 0.2s, the armor starts to repair itself before you get hit again, so it lasted me the whole battle. Also a nice thing that I've stumbled on a very lucky ammo chain in Hell lv7, where I first decided to bail out due to lack of ammo, but then seeing a chaingunner (YAY!) revived my hopes to clear the level - still something hid out of my sight. Oh well.

Oh yep, I've got Arena Gold with this run - me VERY happy. Really, people, how to fight on the Arena damageless at all? I only managed this feat once, and with a combat shotgun from a lucky lv2 vault.

And finally. At this particular moment in time, I don't believe I have a healthier or more deeply-felt respect for any object in the universe than this here pistol. Not even to a nuke-BFG.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

One word: Exhausted.

Three words: My "F" button hurts!

Many words: Well, not too big of a story, but still there is some.
First, playing AoMC inclined me to run with a Cateye build, but with pistols instead of rapid fire, well, unless I'd find me a worthy gun. It ended up pistols be more fun and more capable of protecting my humble body than any rapidfire could possibly be. 0.1s (0.09s?) per shot, up to 26 damage, and not even three MV packs on my head are enough to kill me, two can't even touch me as they get either pushed outwards, or killed in place. The bad thing though, is that I had to flee out of 2 levels that had nightmare 'trons, as these are known doomguy killers, and there are tons of them for a single weapon, no matter how great, to hold them at bay. Maybe a P-modded nanomanufacture combat pistol would be able to make me stand ground, but no nano packs in all hundred levels. Sadface.

The most spectacular moment was on level 100, which had 2 Cyberdemons staring down my barrel right off the start. I slammed a homie (I had 2, and a nuke, should there be an invulnerability), judged the layout and decided to stand ground. Should have reconsidered probably, as the level was teleporting stuff at my side every soo often. One of the teleported monsters blasted me from off my sight, ruining any cover, then cybies waltzed in, one got put down with my pistol, the other got a baron at his back, was hit by him and didn't expect that by all of what's his heart is made of. Ha ha.
Code: [Select]
Boom! You dodge! The missile hits the Cyberdemon. The Cyberdemon dies.The most strange thing is that while I have an OP armor on my shoulders, I still have no onyx packs recorded in the statistics. The armor is frikking OP indeed, even if it's slow, it took heat off my head for sooo much, I might still qualify for an Iron Skull, should it be awardable in Ao100.

The most glorious battle was at level 99 (or 98), with a cave full of agony elementals. The only time nuclear BFG shined more than my pistol, as there was too many souls and elementals to be able to dwindle their numbers with pistol(s) alone. Good thing the BFG recharges 1 ammo per action, as this enables pistol builds to regenerate it the fastest.

The best decision was to build a demolition ammo conbat pistol. The firestorm pack was a singleton across all Hell, and small corpse removal utility was the very thing I needed to fight BBVV packs. The worst decision was to carry plasma rifles and ammo across half of Hell instead of plain relying on 10mm ammo up front. I was preparing to build a nanomanufacture laser rifle just in case, but otherwise everything non-pistol went obsolete after I've completed demolition ammo. It blows holes and they stay tiny, and barrels around don't care.

And probably I should not have taken any levels in Iro... but just in case.

 32 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 24 of those were killed.
 And 3 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 5 souls destroyed the Mastermind...
 4 killed the bitch and survived.
 1 showed that it can outsmart Hell itself.

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

The start was plain AWESOME. Not a single monster in sight, a duelist armor in sight, a boots plus an agility pack just a tad north, another ammo chain to keep that minigun fed, and a very open level to boot. And a Tracking Map on top!!! No viles tho, so no easy XP. But, one of the hell knights got his claws on a bullet proof vest. S***, but he wasn't into blasting me all the way into the lava, so I survived with my armor half torn. Got two knives, so dared to jump into UC. Dam, that Angel of Death even with scout, +10 from boots and +15 from armor, and IIRC a level of Hellrunner is pretty fast, even got me once cornered! But eventually I managed to lock him into running after me in circles, while I was all like "run-run-use knife-throw knife-run-run", thanks to AoMC this was not too long, as almost every knife would hit, and some would hit for more than 1... or all of them hit for 2? I did get a SoB level by that time.

Level 1 also awarded me with a rocket launcher, so there was a sudden use for all those RMs roaming Hell, at least I could sculpt levels as I see fit, not them. Sadly, got a "khe-khe" level twice, one of them probably got a lava river with a barrel standing on the bridge, or soooo many barrels lined up, so when I got to reach the right side of it, there was an impenetrable field of lava blocking my path further. Good thing is that stairs down were just on its edge, so I could get there without getting me hot. So, no YAAM, although I tried shooting rockets over there, got a baron killed, maybe a former, but there was at least a single hV pack in the distance.

And then level 3 dropped me a nuclear plasma! YAY I could try wrecking JC! Well, nice try - no white stuff on Hell lv7 or lv6, or maybe they got blown up, as lv6 was another barrel level. Got to dance some distance vs cacodemons, shotgunners and revenants, an arachno cave proved to be decently difficult, but nothing a rocket could remedy - while you don't get hit, of course. Ammo problems were long gone, other than playing cat and mouse there was no serious difficulty except the start of level 5, where my intuition was just enough to display two hV packs together right behind an open corner. Luckily, the outermost former was shootable, so I blasted there a rocket... khe, he, he, what a mess! Viles got wiped with two volleys from my happy trigger plasma gun. And vs Mastermind on AoMC you just need to land a single volley, he'd flinch and you'll be safe. The Minigun on AoOC is just too funny to not to use. Har, har, har.

After about five years of not touching this, I finally gathered enough strength, nostalgia and will to ever delve into a procedurally generated Hell. First, completing Doom 1 and Doom 2 on UV with no saves mid-level. Then I remembered, "Hey, there's a Doom game that wants you to do like that!".

I really wonder how do people ever manage damageless kills in melee, esp on Hell Arena. Every attempt I try either gets me eaten, or I lose all my armor and medkits and run further on whatever I collect as Arena reward. This run I was heavily using knife throwing on Arena, three seemed to be about the right number to wield. Still got hit into the red before wrecking the last cacodemon, and it was even with the lucky red armor I found on level 2 in a vault with some lost souls.

Really, I don't remember the game giving me as many uniques before! My first win was a normal HNTR with as much as 6 uniques, this time it was three, and 4 times I got invulnerability to use a nuke, which I really planned for only at the gates of Dis, getting two in a row. Also I got blessed with quite a decent number of packs, including an onyx, so I rushed WK2 right after getting master trait. Still even a double chainsaw loses against UC's weapons... except for the sound, of course. BRRRRZZZZZZZZ!

The funniest thing in the run happened at Limbo, where I have already arrived with OP red armor. Any hit off a Vile triggers berserk, then I only get 1 damage from any single source (probably excluding lava), and each my move made a lot of enemies fly all sides just because a lot of mancubi were around, as well as other AoE shooting stuffs. So, I walk, they fly, I walk, they fly again, if I'm in luck, a corpse gets destroyed in crossfire, or a baron of hell, or at least an imp. I like fried mancubus smell, but I don't like having to suffer when they toss themselves into lava from their own blasts against my FACE! Had to run over lava to put down a vile tossed there like that, they don't frikking die in there.

Hmm... probably I would punch barrels just to get tossed into berserk state...

PS: Never *drop* a nuke into the lava, USE it there if you're invulnerable - a mere note to self. Good thing I've got two.

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

This costed me a bunch of nerves and a rage quit before I could ever start this. At Hell-7 I had to run past a revenant without any other route, and at Phobos Anomaly those cacos were too liberal with shots so that they left the majority of souls at my heels. The Brothers were not so liberal, and they left me with 3% red armor prior to me descending finally. Got several invulnerability orbs greatly placed, and a homing phase to take prior to Halls of Carnage, so I took the BFG all the way to Spider - not if it had any effect. The other homing phase was right past that rev on Hell-7, so I warped out instead of getting fried. Whew.

The only time I could screw the game over was when I have finally found a nano pack, and thought about assembling a cybernano armor instead of nanomachic weapon. A firestorm was hoarded for some time already, so I was happy adding MOAR DAKKA. From there it was a steady downhill, especially after a couple of Ironman traits. The most fun was a lava elemental cave, when those stupid STUPID E's all teleport into my vicinity, but none fired while I was chaingunning them all saying "DAKKA DAKKA DAKKA! U wer stoopid, now u ar stoopid and DEAD!" (was reading about "more dakka" in the meantime and had a lot of fun). A nanomachic napalm launcher would be great too, or a laser rifle. Thankfully I got an onyx pack a lot earlier than a nano pack, so a PO red armor brought me up to level 90 when I finally went over the wait and slapped an A over it.

The only thing else to say is that it's tedious past level 50, but never a torture, even in NM arachno caves. Also this game costed me an argument with my wife, so I'll refrain from playing that long... at least for some time. :)
