Nightmare! / Re: [N!|72%|YAVP] Finally got that Nightmare! win :)
« on: February 02, 2016, 02:11 »
I'm definitely late to the party, but meh, I think I've got a lot to do still in this game.

Malek's armour is my fav I think. It's a revelation to have decent protection that actually speeds you up. Necroarmour I can't get to grips with, don't like my health dropping like that, although I'm sure there are situations where it is great.

Nightmare! / [N!|72%|YAVP] Finally got that Nightmare! win :)
« on: January 31, 2016, 12:36 »
Woohoo!
Once you get to Hell it's actually not that bad is it? I never got past Deimos 1 or 2 before on N! but the first time I did I went all the way. Was fairly lucky as despite no special levels I still managed to find Malek's and Cybernetic armour. The usual mad dash past the anomaly landed me in some reasonable situations for a change, so I was able to work my way out of them. Once I got ammochain and found Malek's armour I started taking it reeeaaaally slow and realised it was on. Hell went pretty smoothly mostly, except for the first which was a lava flood level, steel boots and no envirosuit made me nervous.. :)

I'd like to thank my high powered plasma rifle and the workhorse that is the shotgun.

So the Diamond came quicker than I expected... :)
I was trying to get Destroyer Platinum, and had messed up by taking too much damage in Hell2 or 3 because of some a bad starting position and dumb play, thought I'd try the Mortuary for a giggle and obviously underestimated the sheer damage output of a Max Carnage Mortuary! Was pleasantly surprised to see Gatekeeper Diamond as I thought it had to be in a regular game. I got a lucky phase to the middle of The Anomaly and was able to shoot from a safe distance into the trap room, then cornershoot the Bruisers. Dodgemaster and the Missile Launcher took care of Cybie. Fun!

Thanks both :)

Right I thought as much. I have trouble with that level on UV normally, so it really is a tricky one, might forget it for a while, or maybe try the easier version without doing the Arena (seems a shame though now I can finally do the Arena ... ). Those berserks are extra handy on N! though because of the extra duration. .. . hmmm.

(Apologies for this guy's name... had a bad few tries before him  :/)
Made in the dent in the Platinums now, with 9. Very close to Gargulec Cross but the early levels are pretty hard to clear if you don't get enough health and/or armour. I think I missed some on level 3 because things were getting a bit scary. The bonus of dying on Nightmare! a lot recently is that UV feels a lot more relaxing (possibly not the right word...). Problem is that I need 1 more diamond to rank up now, and that means doing something bonkers :)

36
Yes it's definitely a different game on N! but at least now I can see how to do it... I'll just wait for a really lucky run to carry me :)

Trying my hand at Nightmare! now as I have got most UV related badges, struggling along getting murdered a lot... I have made it past the anomaly once, but that was kind of a crazy dash without much hope, and without any special levels. I figured learning how to do the arena would help future attempts. It took a lot of tries though, needing a decent setup for level 2 with enough stimpacks or medpacks, and then some luck at the start of the arena as well. I learned the techniques from some gameplay videos posted here so thanks to Tormuse and Papilio for those!

As an aside I went into the Chained Court thinking I could rush the Arena Master and then run to the exit, but I guess everything needs to be dead for the wall to disappear? That makes it.... tough?

Hey,

my laptop hard drive with my DoomRL player save got toasted and replaced and I am back to square one. I posted some mortems to this forum.... was wondering if there was a way to 'import' them or edit my player file to include some previous medals/badges? I'm enjoying playing from the start again, but not sure if I can replicate some of my better runs ... :)

40
Wow congrats! As someone who has spent a lot of time trying to get Berserker Platinum with Vampyre, you have just blown my tiny mind.

41
Not got anything to say here apart from 'NICE'.

All my questions were answered in the above post :)

(N! Hell's Armoury? All bodies knocked into lava or in doorways? Oooof...)

PS - Does eveything have to be perma dead to get the cache? I'm guessing if something (anything) revives then the cache doesn't open?

Well nearly all my questions :)

« on: February 07, 2014, 05:03 »
Nice work! Fairly similar setup to my run (Ammochain and Hyperblaster) and I have to agree... stuff just dies to a Hyperblaster with those traits - especially an F-modded one :)

Also agree that once your build is setup, the run is mostly in the bag (barring silly mistakes and unlucky spawns) but it's getting to that stage that is difficult. You just need the right item or mod or 2 to appear at the right time, sometimes that can change the course of a run. Sometimes if you get the wrong gear it can spell death. I suppose a good player can make the best out of any situation but I'm babbling now so congrats again!

As to what to do next - I've just been trying to work through the achievements at UV level as I don't feel quite ready to play on N! just yet, it feels like a different game! Not sure what badges you need but Daredevil Platinum is doable if you get a decent first level (for me that meant a lot for enemies for XP and a lot of shells, and some armour would be nice...)

43
How do you go about this? It's not like you can insta-switch after you fire a shot, so once you've engaged something, you're hooked. Although you combined it with a melee build of course... makes sense.

Yeah I don't think it would work as well with a non-melee build, but you could insta switch to it each time you wanted to move I suppose.

Post Mortem / Re: [U|AoMr|100%|YAAM] Me again sorry!
« on: February 07, 2014, 04:47 »
Ta - much fun was had. I don't think I'd actually used Bullet Dance before and I have to say (despite this run) I'm not a huge fan. It's too ammo hungry in the later levels and caused me a lot of worry :)

Having said that I think getting Dualgunner and Son of a Bitch instead of afew levels of Eagle Eye made the early game a lot easier for me. Especially the Arena where you usually aren't fighting at long range, just pew pewing around those small pillars. I prefer a Sharpshooter Technician, but find it very hard to stay alive long enough to get the master trait.

I seem to be on a bit of a roll this week - got lucky again here with some fancy phasing in The Vaults.

After pondering how to best go for Elite Platinum I decided a Vampyre Marine (after getting all the way to the Unholy Cathedral with some Shottyhead guy - and getting predictably torn to shreds by that angry chap in the back room....) would be able to handle the UC and have enough beans to get through the Mortuary too.

As I've read on here before, Vampyre is very powerful, especially when you can pair it up with indestructible armour. A lot of your inventory problems are gone there and then. It's quite hard getting to that stage though as you are playing the early game with fairly unhelpful traits, (you all know this, but bear with me..) quite afew Marines died trying to get Vampyre.

Anyway once the OP red armour came onto the scene after Hell's Armoury things mostly got more relaxing. I did have quite a lot of maneuvering problems as this guy was pretty slow for the most part, so if i got caught out by a commando or arachnotron they could easily get afew barrages off. He was fairly tough though and could usually take it and then smack them around for a small health boost. Fairly sloppy play though, I may have got a bit lazy.

I didn't forget the Arena Staff this time! But I didn't use it :)
I cleared the 2 vaults either side and saw that I had a phase device so thought - why not? Bingo. I'm in and everyone dies in a red haze, had to be careful not to let the goodies get destroyed though. I'm even more pleased as I didn't even realise that would get me a Diamond at the time, I thought it was Scavenger Platinum...

The Mortuary was where the trouble was, of course. That scared me - I was fairly confident going in, had my plan of rushing round in a berserk rage seeking out the Arch-Viles and smacking demons on the way to them to keep me alive... After about 10 or 15 moves I was surrounded by, well, everything and I wasn't really fast enough to actually close range with many enemies - coupled with getting knocked back everywhere by all the mancubi - I thought I was a gonner. Especially after I used a Homing Phase to grab a Supercharge in the corner and everything getting instantly destroyed by fire and stuff... Then I remembered I had the Railgun! (Doh..) Broke that out and pop pop popped all the mancubi around me to get some breathing room and then resumed my violent run around the block. Things kindof calmed down then and everyone died eventually :)

And at the end, after nearly persuading myself not to fight JC (I didn't want to lose my precious badges) he died very quickly as I repeatedly hit him in the head (I imagine) with a big scythe.

Two things remain.. Firstly that acid spitter is fantastic with juggler as you can carry it in your prepared slot and get the resistance bonus and still use your primary weapon. Nice. Barons? Who cares?
Second, I was hoping that the Scythe would form a set with the Angelic armour like the Spear does ... I am confused because it's harder to get the Scythe, is there a way to choose the Spear instead? (Apart from not getting 100% kills?)
