The nuke does do a finite amount of damage, but the way the damage is dealt and the way resistances work, there's no way in the regular game to attain enough resistance (that would work versus the damage the nuke deals, that is) to survive it short of invulnerability.
Cool.  That is more what I was going for in an answer.  Thanks to both of you though.  Next time any of you have a look, I am curious just how much damage it deals.  Thanks again in advanced.

So theoretically with enough damage resistance, something could survive?

Quick question: Does the nuke actually just do a shit ton of damage to everything or does it just kill everything?

Discussion / Re: AoB and Standard Games
« on: September 21, 2013, 22:09 »
Good write up.  Lots of advice there.  Still my biggest problem with an AoB run is getting started.  I usually lose my Blue Armor on Level 2 and die shortly thereafter.  Unless the RNG has been kind to me, I run out of armor then health.  I guess I just need to run more until I get that CC Chainsaw.  Then things generally smooth out a bit for awhile.  I might have to give the melee Scout build I try.  I keep trying with Marine to get MVm, but have yet to live long enough to get it.  I did have at least one good AoB where I at least got the Bronze Medal, but that was about it.  I'll still have to work on it.  Also, what you say about running is important.  I rarely remember to run.  I guess I still need to figure out when to run or not.  Thanks again for the tips.

Agreed with pretty much all of the above.  Especially Aki's suggestions on how to "fix" the BFG.

Thanks!  Yeah, the BFG is good at killing weak mobs, but so is just about everything else.  I get a much greater return from a plasma rifle for less cell usage, even without Ammochain.  The one level it would have been useful on, City of Skulls, I didn't have it yet.

My first non-challenge win!  The Mortuary was a bit dodgy at times and I left there at 7% Health!  I have to say I was rather disappointed with the BFG's performance, especially annoying was it destroying items (like most of the Supercharge spheres on the Mortuary!)  Once I got the Plasma Gun, it was pretty smooth sailing damage-wise, but I didn't get any decent armor except for the Angelic, so I was a bit of a glass cannon for the longest time.  Still, I am glad to have my first standard game win under my belt.  Now to go for more of those challenges and such.

My first win!  Yay!  I thought I had 100% kills as I didn't leave any levels until they were blue, but then I remembered the generated levels that I visited but couldn't do anything on.  Wasn't a full win either, but I'll take what I can get for my first one.  Now to do it again not on a challenge to get more medals!

Just wanted to thank you all for contributing to this guide.  It has been most helpful, especially at keeping me not frustrated with DoomRL :D

Discussion / Re: AoB and Standard Games
« on: September 06, 2013, 19:19 »
@thelaptop: Yeah, I can see that.  I suppose my post came off as "whiney" but I assure you that is not my intent.  Such are the pitfalls of text based communication.

I suppose it comes from growing up with Doom that gives me the mentality of not playing on the lower difficulties and will just be something I'll have to overcome.  The Ammochain route was concerning standard runs, not AoB, but I can see the confusion from my post.  It's funny you say that as shortly after my post, I did have a mostly successful AoB run.  The RNG smiled upon me!  And yeah, the Chainsaw saw me through most of that game.  I'll have to try that whole avoid former Sgts thing.

Cybie, got it.  When/if do you grab whizkid for the mods?  I usually play as a Marine, so unless I start playing more as a Tech, I don't see how I could fit it in my build.

Thanks for the stuff so far.  I've a lot to learn.  Also @ ~300 deaths, so I've got the dieing thing down ;)

« on: September 06, 2013, 15:31 »
Alright.  As far as AoB is concerned, any specific guides I should read concerning enemy AI behavior and closing to melee distance?  I think I may have to try going to ammo chain route, but I seldom have a weapon that kind of build would be good for.  Thanks so far.

Discussion / AoB and Standard Games
« on: September 06, 2013, 14:06 »
Short time lurker, first time poster.  Hi everyone!  Anyway,  I'm really having trouble with AoB runs, like not even getting past lvl 3 or 4.  I keep getting hit way too much and lose my Blue Armor usually lvl 2 or 3.  If I'm lucky, I can find another Green or even Blue to replace it sometimes, but I'm still also burning through my meds at the same time.  I'm probably killing too much as opposed to running for the exit more, but then on the few times I make it to 5 or 6, I feel really under-powered to deal with the enemies there.  I certainly have had no luck getting to 8 on AoB and even if I did, I doubt my ability to get past it as things stand.  Any help of what I'm doing wrong or could be doing more correctly would be appreciated.

Now, my other problem is just standard games.  I've gotten to the SM once, but that was through sheer blind luck (I died horribly once there).  I can sometimes get lucky and get to or even kill the CD, but again, mostly due to luck rather than any "skill" or "ability" on my part.  The Deimos lvls really give me a hard time and it is mostly just a crap-shoot with the RNG if I can get through them.  The Hell lvls I mostly run through them as fast as possible as Mancubuses(Mancubii?) end my day very quickly.  Arch-viles I kill with extreme prejudice ignoring pretty much anything else until they die.  But I still have issues with either my armor not being effective enough or is always destroyed all too often.  And then I kill all my meds only to still usually die in an explosion of some sorts.  So any help with what I'm doing wrong here would be appreciated as well.

Last thoughts, I have read through the sticky-ed "Beginner's Guide" and while very helpful, I guess I'm not getting something from it still.  I also pretty much exclusively play on HMP or higher, but with all my failures, I'm considering lowering it.  Although that won't help me with getting medals/ranks as much..., nor really help with what I'm doing wrong IMO.  It would just make things, easier, but without improvement on my part.  So, sorry for the wall of text.  Any help would be...helpful?  Thanks in advanced!
