AliensRL / Re: [0.8.4 BETA 1|SC|YAVP] Trusty sidearm
« on: July 27, 2021, 03:52 »
Congratulations! Are there any roguelikes that you are not supernaturally good at? How much real-time did this run take?  I tried AliensRL years ago and bounced off it, I suppose I was waiting for it to come out of BETA.

Got the last of the steam achievements with Blood Gold. Survivalist seemed an obvious choice, and its 'prevent death' ability saved me once when hit by medusas.

YAAM, but not conquerer, was feeling a bit low on health to run across the entire map to the limbo entrance (I was right next to the exit when I cleared the level) 

Found a few relics (all of which had downsides I thought would hurt my chances for this challenge, so were dropped), and my two favourite weapons so far (both new):

Would be overjoyed to find either of these in any run, they are just so much fun. Looking forward to finding more!

Frustration and impatience are responsible for many roguelike deaths. I've never had a JH crash, must have been super annoying.
The Frenzy trick is a very nice find, love hearing about little tips like this, thanks!

I'm sure we'll be seeing you get the Diamonds at some point in the future, looking forward to it.

I feel your pain! Medusas make any build that relies on standing in LOS and shooting much harder. I lost a lvl 13 Sniper to Medusas recently - was  feeling very confident, full health, lots of healing items, plenty of top quality gear, then met 3 medusas in a row. RIP. Toxicologist, Grenadier, Gun Kata are all great against Medusas.

Congrats on your win!

Amazing as always! I tried this build on AoCo, it was lots of fun, and is actually effective against Medusae (all my other recent attempts were ended by these guys). You got me another Platinum, thanks!

My first Platinum, and achieved Major rank.

Only having 4 inventory slots made heading towards Blademaster seem like a good idea. Since Blademaster doesnt kick in until level 8, I went for Hacker L2 and Remote Hack for the first upgrades. Many tough fights were won with the help of friendly turrets and short lived friendly bots (this was useful for a LOT of the game).

While heading towards blademaster, I avoided melee, and played as a sniper while searching for Katanas. A .44 rifle was my weapon of choice for most of the early game, eventually upgrading to a very nice cold modded AV3 .44 hunter rifle. If I got an enemy at a good range, the Freeze meant they could usually not close the distance before dying. I played sniper style until I had Blademaster and two AV2 katanas, then switched to combo sniper/melee. Once the melee traits were all maxed, I switched to full melee all the way to the end. Blademaster is amazing fun when it gets going!

I almost got Conqueror, but chickened out of Limbo, since it was not needed for the Platinum, and I was so close to the end after so many previous failed attempts.

DoomRL will be installed on every PC I own, forever! Playing Jupiter Hell at the moment, but I always come back to DRL eventually.

My first UV win in JH! Took 175 tries, since all of them were attempting to get 100% kills for the badge. Had severe ammo shortage part way though. I picked up Army Surplus in desperation, and shortly after found an Ammo terminal which set me up for the rest of the game.

The cold mod on the Chaingun was amazing, saved me many times.

Arrived in Precipice with no armour, 30% health, and no healing items. Was down to my last sliver of health, dodging and trying to get the last few hits in on the summoner before being worn down. Onslaught allowing me to move and fire saved the day, and the summoner died moments before I would have (I dont think I would have survived even one more action!).

Really enjoying Jupiter Hell!

Very nice, congratulations!

Amazing achievement, congratulations!

I'm very pleased to have made Captain Rank!

I gave up on YAAM for this run since I was worried about being very low on ammo, so just pushed on to the end instead of clearing Beyond. Jackhammer is very ammo hungry! Summoner went down very quickly to the jackhammer, easiest summoner fight so far.

Remote hacking bots is great fun, bots have been the downfall of all my previous AoSh attempts, so was nice to be able to get them on my side instead.
