So yeah, I was looking through the badges, looking for a game where I could pick up a bunch of golds for the major rank. I decided to get three of them in one run: beat Hell's Arena on U, beat AoMr on U, and 100% a U game. After winning, I was pleasantly surprised that there is a platinum badge for 100%ing U AoMr, so I got Major instantly.

I totally meant to pick technician and pick up some whizkid, but as you can see I picked a scout, so I decided to stack SoG and SoB instead. Gotta say, I really like the feel of masterless pistol. I think it is actually better than all three masters, although I did run into an ammo problem in hell -- Got like 3 caves in a row and couldn't vile farm for ammo for a long time. One of the caves was a pain elemental cave, which drained my ammo terribly. So MSs definitely has ammo conservation going for it.

Surprisingly, Hell's Arena went pretty smoothly. I got lucky with spawns. I had a close call in CC+, though. And for some weird reason, I felt buff enough to take on dual-shamblers. I prevailed, but I lost all my medpacks and armors! Other than that, the only close call I had was in a demon cave:

I spawned surrounded by tons of them. Couldn't kill them fast enough. If I hadn't found a ballistic shield a couple floors sooner it would have been ugly.

So yeah, went MSs. Found Malek's armor. Then found the boots. This pushed my move speed to like 0.3 seconds, and my fire speed was 0.1s thanks to 5xSoG. Do you know what this allowed me to do? I could shoot a vile, knock it back, then take a step forward, rinse and repeat 5 times, and almost always it couldn't get off its attack. When it did manage to, I was so fast that I dodged them all, heh.

And the best part about this setup? It gives you 100% fire resistance, feet AND TORSO! So I could keep my 0.3s movement speed while walking on lava, and I could blow up lava barrels in my face without taking ANY damage!

It was glorious. Glorious I tell you!

I've been aiming to increase to the Hell Knight XP rank, so I needed some pistol kills. Knowing me, I would never use a pistol unless I went AoMr, so that's what I did. I also needed another silver for 1st Lieutenant skill rank, so I needed a 100% on HMP.

I decided to go Sharpshooter, just because it's my favorite pistol master and easy access to WK is nice (especially to augment Ss' early weakness). I was really concerned about Cybie, because I've never done Sharpshooter outside Ao100 before. That's why I put the early point in Hellrunner. I don't regret it. I think it was a wise choice. Things were going okay, then...

I found a GCB. o_O Let me tell you. GCB + Sharpshooter is.. it's insanely easy. It's complete insta-win mode. I also found a pair of phase-shift boots which I a-modded and then a Necroarmor. My move speed was ridiculously fast without even trying.

Discussion / Let's talk about UV
« on: April 03, 2012, 23:22 »
This is something that's been bugging me for a while. In UV, I am constantly spawning into levels that I have no hope of surviving.

See this picture for just such an example.

I spawned in the middle of the room on the left, where I was greeted by a hell knight and about four imps. So I did the sensible thing and activated running and made my way to the tactically superior doorway on the right. But look at what greeted me on the other side. This is only level three. All I have is a pistol, a shotgun, a chaingun, a green armor, and a couple of small med-packs.

I can attest that this is not an isolated situation. Every time I enter a new level, I am simply at the mercy of the RNG. When I hear 2DeviationsOut say things like "RNG doesn't matter in this game, there's always a solution" I must admit I do not believe him. Does everyone else just kind of die like this until you get that one lucky run that gives you good gear and good starting level positions?

I've been putting off this challenge for quite a while, as it seemed really difficult to me. I was pleasantly surprised at the starting gear, however. And those first few levels come really quickly. I think I only had to kill a couple mancubi to get them.

But the awesome thing about this run was that there was a super shotgun laying three tiles away from where I started. I had it in my hands before I even saw my first enemy. Then I found an energy shield. Needless to say, the run wasn't too difficult (except for an abnormally large number of mancubii). One more gold badge for me. :)

I wonder what would have happened if level 2 hadn't been a nuke level. Would the history section have only said "Then at last he found Dis!" ?

It took me what seemed like forever, (I died 21 times since I started trying UV) but I finally managed a UV win. No fancy exotics until late in the game; just straight up carnage. I went with an int/cateye build, and it worked really well. Somewhere around hell 3 I forgot that I was going for 100% and got excited when I realized that I had everything I needed to kill the mastermind. So I rushed down the stairs. Oh well. Still proud of my victory. :)

I was trying to find the city of skulls so I could get the badge for clearing it on AoRA, but I'm not sure I would have had enough time, anyway. I tried several special levels, and I had time to complete none of them. I did really well on the armory, beat Shambler, made my way all the way back, but apparently I had missed an enemy or two, and had to move on without getting to the cache. :\

This was my first time attempting the challenge, and I was surprised just how little time you really get. You have to focus right away on covering as much ground as possible to find the stairs, and if you find them early, you have the luxury to try to find some supplies. I was really low on supplies the whole game, and just had to make do with whatever I could find on my path.

If I had it to do over again, I probably would have started off with hellrunner, assuming that gives you more time to move..

I was blessed with a very early onyx and nano pack, which I used to make lava boots and powered red armor. Those made life very, very nice for me. The weapon I used the entire game was just a vanilla plasma rifle (I don't know many assemblies yet), A1P2S1T1. I found a laser rifle which I modded with P3T2. I figured I could use it to shoot enemies out of sight range, but I never really ended up using it.

Other interesting finds: Berserker Armor, Malek's Armor, pretty much all the shields, and a very nice Acid Spitter / Acidproof boots combination. I was doing so well with my plasma rifle that I didn't bother with the acid spitter much, but I should have. Woulda been fun. :)

Bug Reports / [0.9.9.6G] No credit for badge
« on: March 11, 2012, 22:08 »
Specifically, the silver daredevil badge (awarded for completing angel of confidence). The mortem says I completed it, the high score screen says I completed it, the game counted as a standard win, but the badge screen says I didn't. I nuked the mastermind but died to JC.

Edit: I just realized that those screens may merely be saying that I attempted the challenge. In that case, though, isn't it a bit counter-intuitive that the game counted as a standard win? It is confusing to me that I can net a standard win without getting the badge.

By the way, I couldn't reload the napalm launcher on that level. Intended behavior?

Ironically, this was probably my easiest run ever. I decided to do a cateye/int build in order to take as little damage as possible. It worked quite well. I even got the untouchable badge.

This time, I got a lot of use out of the missile launcher, which was cool. I got pretty lucky with mod packs; once I assembled powered red armor (I learned the assembly this game!) the game was pretty much a breeze.

That was some run. My strategy was to obtain the nuclear plasma rifle from the spider's lair, thereby clearing up most of my inventory spots for non-ammunition.

The early game was a breeze. I built up slowly to a rapid fire build with the occasional nicety such as finesse. My approach here was to use both a chaingun and a shotgun, scavenging whatever ammo was available each level. This worked well, since a lot of times a level will be heavy on one ammo type or the other, allowing you to burn whichever has excess. My basic inventory setup was two slots for primary ammo, one for backup ammo, one med-pack, and one phase.

Things got a bit rough when I entered the spider's lair. I (fortunately!) ditched the phase for another med-pack before I went in. Got some bad luck getting double-teamed and had to burn through both of them early. Then I played really conservatively and somehow managed to pull out a victory with — get this — 2 shells and 2 bullets left. My reward was the nuclear plasma rifle!

A couple levels later, however, tragedy once again struck with the cyberdemon..

My strategy was going really well, keeping out of his range with my excellent speed and using cateye to get potshots off on him, but eventually, I had to 'turn around' so I could keep kiting him. I learned the hard way that there is no surefire way to do this; the pillars usually don't last long enough to do it with impunity. At this point, I had no med-packs and could only take 2 rockets to the face. A third one would kill me. Wouldn't you know, I did take those 2 rockets to the face. Fortunately, I took no more, and he went down while I had 8% hp.

Fortunately, there weren't any enemies in sight of where I spawned on the next level! And there was an invulnerability nearby! From this point on, I kept improving my build, and I found the mod that adds 2 extra shots to a rapid fire weapon. That was pretty cool.

With the 20% speed boost from AoLT, my tac boots/armor, scout class, and a point in hell runner, I had a ridiculous 0.46 movement speed. I could perpetually corner shoot the mastermind with impunity with no threat of retaliation, so that was rad. :)

What an amazing gem of a game this is. I discovered it recently and I've had a lot of fun with it. I remember going from ITYTD to HNTR and thinking, "how is this even possible?" I died a lot to the lost souls just before Deimos or to the Cyberdemon or some special level.

This time I had a little better idea of what I should be doing. Some things that have really stepped up my play: putting mods on armor (I was not doing this at first because it seemed like a waste) and simply carrying backup armor. By the time I ended the game I had 5 red armors, a few bulk and one power modded. Near the end I wasn't sure about my ability to handle the harder special levels, so the spider lair was the last one I did.

And good thing, too, because I totally messed up my chaingun build. The nuclear plasma rifle came in very handy. I took a bunch of eagle eye, thinking that it wouldn't block ammochain. Lesson learned. Fortunately, trigger happy + SoB is quite powerful on its own. It's just a bit ammo-hungry, hence why the nuclear plasma rifle ended up being very nice. Near the end, I found a minigun, which was cool. I even ended up killing the mastermind with it.

This run was notable to me not only because it's my first HNTR win, but because it's my only run so far where I wasn't invincible or zerked for the boss fights. I ended up killing the cyberdemon only getting hit by one rocket.

As for the mastermind...

Man, she HURTS. I BFG'd her thrice before she got in melee range, and then I hellwave pack'd her. :) Then I phased out and started popping off minigun rounds into the distance and ended up killing her out of sight range. It was beautiful. :)

Next, I figure I'll go for a 100% HNTR win, or try one of the challenges.. or maybe try HMP. What do you guys think I should tackle next?
