Discussion / Either I suck or...
« on: October 14, 2015, 07:26 »
I am trying to get past the first 6-7 levels of UV Angel of 100. My problem is that the enemies start ramping up a bit too quickly. It's not fun going down to Phobos 3 and starting off next to 2 hell knights with a third one next room (as happened to me at least twice). Finally make it to level 6 where the all-powerful Combat Shotgun starts spawning? Have fun searching for it while dealing with goddamn Barons of Hell when, at best, you have a double shotgun (which has such poor range it's not worth using) and a chaingun (which has a poor fire rate and takes 3 hours to reload). Yes, maybe it's my fault for trying for a Sharpshooter build, somewhat gimping my early-game, but even when I switched from:
SOG->SOG->SOG->EE->EE->EE->MSs to
EE->EE->Int->Int->EE->SOG->SOG->SOG->MSs,
I still can't reach the SOG's because I just die before I can do so. My only real chance is constantly restarting the first level basically "No vault? Shift-Q y". The vault both provides a chance at something that might give me a chance early-game and gives valuable experience. But even that's a crapshoot. I might get a combat shotgun, a large med-pack and blue armor, or I might get some rockets and shotgun shells. Again, maybe I just suck at the game (I have beaten AoMC UV YAAM Conqueror before (http://forum.chaosforge.org/index.php/topic,5799.0.html), so at least on AoMC I am capable of doing well). It's just that on other angels I seem to struggle with UV. Perhaps I should try a different build, but...I dunno. I just felt like ranting about my experiences with UV Ao100 and how the enemies start ramping up WAY too quickly, in my opinion.

Post Mortem / [H|AoMr|19|100%|YASD] Shattered Dream
« on: September 26, 2015, 04:40 »
After, no kidding, ~50 HMP AoB runs which got as far as...Post-Hell's Arena Chained Court, I raged and went for something that wouldn't piss me off: Angel of Marksmanship. Oh, had I known that I would be even more pissed off now...

I decided to try out MGK this time. Let's just say...I'm impressed, especially with the free reloads.

Had a bit of an up-and-down start, but it all changed once I got to Hell's Armory. Between the Anti-Freak Jackal and the experience, I was more or less set.

Level 6 had an Onyx Mod Pack and a Red Armor in the same vault. It was meant to be.

Hell's Armory had a Nano mod pack and I thought "Can I make Cybernano armor?" It would have required Whizkid 2 which, as time went on, seemed less and less plausible. Oh well. Not only that, but it also had the AF-Jackal and a Blaster. I ultimately learned that the AF-Jackal is a bit dangerous to use as it destroys power-ups, but it's still awesome, whereas the Blaster was unused because it can't be reloaded (Manually or with MGK, that is)...

With Gun Kata and Anti-Freak Jackal in hand, I breezed through the Wall, Abyssal Plains (!) and Spider Lair. The duel with the Cyberdemon could have gone better (Really long reload times), but I pulled out on top eventually.

I was pretty much in a position where I could clear out the rest of the special levels (except UH) and get an awesome YAFV (In hindsight, the Lava Elemental would have been a pain; that's why I've held on to the Blaster I guess)...until level 19.

FUCKING MANCUBI! One of them proceeded to toss me around. Seriously, it felt like all three missiles kept hitting me. The Onyx-modded Red Armor kept me alive...until the last one which knocked me down to 9 hit points...and RIGHT ON TO LAVA, which then killed me...

Graaaargh! I had a dream set-up, I had great equipment, great items and was in a position to win it all. All ended because of one. Fucking. Mancubus. Yes, in hindsight I should have used a Phase Device, but still, to get knocked perfectly onto lava like that...

Literally the only consolation I get from this is Marksman Bronze, which...well, is barely consolation.

Post Mortem / [M|AoP|YAAM] The impure will be purged!
« on: September 24, 2015, 12:05 »
I decided to start taking on the badges that are "Complete AoX", crossing them out. After a number of failed AoB runs (Note to self: Don't do Hell's Arena; You're not going to get Conqueror because of the Wall anyway), I...did a HMP Sharpshooter Ao100 YAAM run which ended well, but I'm not posting that because I already posted the same thing...at least twice. After a try AoHu run, I went for something more manageable: Angel of Purity. And...it had it's ups and downs, definitely.
Cateye still remains, for me at least, one of the best Master traits to take for avoiding damage.
I avoided some of the special levels: Chained Court because Berserk Packs are Impure, Halls of Carnage because Large Health Globes are Impure and Mortuary because Supercharges are Impure, among some others that I didn't want to do (Or somehow missed *Cough*cityofskulls*cough*).
Yet I still did The Wall. It was definitely a sight. I manage to clear it no damage, I stride towards the missile launcher, grab it replacing my rocket launcher, then move over, step on the Backpack, click on the character and...
"Impure".
...well, that sucked. I mean I don't mind the experience, but...ugh.
Deimos Lab...the battle against the twin Shamblers sucked horribly, but in the end I was rewarded with two Sniper Mods. One I slapped on the Minigun and I hoped to get Whizkid so I could slap on a second for perfect accuracy into the dark X's. As you can see from my trait selection, I never really got a chance to pick it up because something more important kept coming up.
I usually managed to stockpile a few med-packs only to have to use most of them in a single level because I suck and because of some unexpected stuff happening.
So...yeah. I came, I saw, I shot the enemies in the face until they died, the impure infidels! Oh, and I didn't go for JC because I didn't have Dodgemaster.
One last thing: Why is the AoP difficulty classified as "Blade"? I mean it's hard, yes, but it's in all honesty not THAT hard. AoHu is ranked Very Hard which I am aware is a lower rank than Blade, so...yeah.

Oh, right, the Mortem.

Post Mortem / [H|AoSh|97%|25|YASD/YAVP] It's been a while...
« on: September 18, 2015, 05:23 »
It's been a while since I last played this. ~2 years in fact. So I decided I want to play some DoomRL and went straight for AoMr. It ended very quickly. So I figured I should go for something simpler, like AoSh. And, on my first run...

Jackhammer still remains freaking awesome.

I got lucky with the Containment Area, the phase device I had allowed me to get the backpack.

Mortuary was chaotic, but I pulled through. Having al but 1 of the viles on one side and 2 Hatred Skulls helped.

Found a nuke on ~20, so I was able to nuke the SM and get to JC.

...where I ran out of ammo. The Lava Elemental took far more bullets then expected and the level after didn't have any former sergeants, so I was starved for ammo going into the battle with JC. Long story short, I was not aware of his new trick where he summons Barons of Hell if you attack from outside his range, they wasted some ammo and, eventually...yeah.

Oh well, it still seems to count as a win as far as badges are concerned, so I'm pleased.

0.9.9.6 / [U|AoLT|95%|13|YASD] The return
« on: August 31, 2012, 14:51 »
So, my old computer finally died over a month ago. After getting a new one and transferring some data, I ended up not playing DoomRL for ~a month. Today I finally decided to start playing again. I at first was like "Okay, I should probably try to play an easier game to try and remember the skills." Then I was like "Eh, screw it" and immediately leapt into UV. Decided to try out AoLT.

Let's just say that this run was nasty. I probably should have just went with a shotty build.

I'd rather not talk about the run any more, due to it happening a few hours ago and memory somewhat fading.

Discussion / Self-imposed challenges
« on: July 06, 2012, 02:23 »
While playing, have you thought of playing not an angel of path (or an angel of path), but with a few extra restrictions for a challenge? Want to share those challenges, or have others try them out? I made this thread for that, though I don't think that it'll become too popular, but oh well :P

So basically, post either a challenge you want others to try out, or post your attempt at one of these challenges.

Yes, I know there are 2Dev's challenges, but this should be for those who are not gods.

So here are a few I came up with:

1) The Guy With a Knife challenge.

Description: You have a very personal relationship with your Combat Knife, Sonya. Those bastards from your group thought they would be clever by taking her away, but Karma came to them, and it's now left at the entrance. You cannot imagine being able to fight without her, and you are NOT going to tarnish her with making her a sword. However, the blood of the demons...

Challenge path: AoB so you can get the knife at level 1.
Class: Any.
Difficulty: Any, though the harder, the more awesome.
Restrictions: You may only use the one knife for the entire run. No weapons in the off-hand slot, and only THE knife in the main hand. You may put ONE mod on it, or make it a piercing blade, but you may NOT turn it into a chainsword. No other restrictions.
Challenge difficulty: Depends on how many enemies you try to kill.


2) Speedy tactician.

Those idiots back on Earth don't know what they are taking about. You don't need careful moves or superb preperation. All that matters for you is speed. Speed, speed and nothing but speed. For this reason you only care about being as quick as you can.

Challenge Path: Any, though AoRA makes most sense as the path emphasises speed and tactics.
Class: Any, though if you want an extra challenge, DON'T take Scout.
Difficulty: Any, though the harder, the more awesome.
Restrictions: You may take these level up choices: Finesse, Hellrunner, Son of a Gun (It increases pistol firing speed, so...), Reloader, Juggler, Shottyman, MAYBE Dodgemaster. (All others either don't give you any extra speed, or slow you down, which you can't take. You may only take other things if you can't take any of these).

You may only equip armor if it INCREASES move speed compared to the armor you have equipped. So if you have green armor equipped, you may NOT equip blue armor because it slows you down unless the green armor becomes destroyed, but you may equip duelist armor as it DOES speed you up. The same goes for boots. You MAY equip slower armor to mod it, but if it's still slower after the modding, you must equip the faster armor again.

As far as weapons go, the lower the firing and reload time, the better. Again, if the weapon you want to equip has a longer firing and reload time, you may not equip it. Be careful about weapon choices then. The only exception to this is the Tactical Shotgun which takes priority above all else, because it's a Tactical weapon.
Challenge difficulty: Low to medium, as ultimately speed is the core of everything, but the hard part will be managing items to equip, as it locks you out of other items.

And...go!

Century Lounge / [H|Ao100|YAAM] Trigun gunning
« on: July 05, 2012, 15:09 »
A couple of failed UV Ao100 runs (Most never made it to Deimos. Seriously, those Hell Knights and ESPECIALLY those plasma cannon users (Commando, Arachnotron) can go to...er...oh right. So I decided to try and do a step down and do HMP Ao100.

This run. Took. Forever. Ugh, and to think that I'mma repeat this on UV, assuming I ever get up to MSs before getting killed...

Level 11 got me the Trigun. Sad that I was no able to slap on another power mod on it, but oh well, it's as powerful as a combat pistol with P3 anyway, just without the clip size. The reload times were killing me, though, until I picked up a few levels in Reloader.

No onyx mod packs, so I would not have been able to assemble cybernano armor or a fireshield anyway. So I went with the Nanoskin armor.

In general the run is pretty standard, but for me it's an accomplishment. Sad that I am submitting it at a similar time as 2dev once again annihilates the game.

One thing though: Should I have assembled the armor or should I have stuck with Malek's Armor which I found on the same level? (I found it before the assembly, but I did'nt know, and I already had PN-modded red armor anyway).

0.9.9.6 / [M|AoPc|6%|YAVP] Pacifist gold + silver
« on: June 29, 2012, 13:21 »
For fun I tried a AoMr N! run. I actually did fairly well, I made it to Phobos Anomaly before I got brutalised by the demons. Why I did'nt use a phase device I had, I don't know, but whatever.

After that a few AoOC UV runs, because I thought that the only real hard part is the very start, and once you get a few levels and some armor, it's pretty much like a regular game when you make it to Hell. No, I did not beat the first level.

After that, I decided to go for Pacifict silver, and gold if I was quick enough. Sure enough, on my first run... ;)

The key I discovered is to just run, keep running, stop for as little as possible, to avoid enemy projectiles. Also key is, if possible, to take small detours to grab phase devices and powerups.

Anomaly I had a bit of pain because of the Lost Souls. Thankfully the Bruiser Brothers killed all of them. I ran past them.

Got hit by the Cyberdemon once. It was annoying, but ran past quickly.

Again, just keep running. The stairs were easy to find except for one level in Hell, where I had to look for it for most of the level.

At the end I thought I was way past the 10 minute mark. turns out I had over 45 seconds to spare.

Also, first death by nuking the SM and dying with the explosion :)

I tried to go for Destroyer Platinum on this run, and managed to pick up Gatekeeper Diamond along the way.

Level 2 housed the Jackhammer. Game starts don't get much better than that. Turns out, though, that it's affected by Triggerhappy.

Hell's Arena no damage, The Wall no damage, Hell's Armory one hit...

Spider's Lair went rather painlessly.

Cyberdemon kept sidestepping the missiles.

I wanted to make a Powered Duelist armor, but never got to that point...

I wanted to use the Jackhammer to destroy the Mortuary and potentially get the Angelic Badge...but I died beforehand. Appearantly I somehow failed to see that the Jackhammer was not fully loaded, so when I entered level 19 and got spawned right next to 3 revenants and 2 arch-viles, I thought 2 bursts from the Jackhammer would be enough. I only launched one burst, and while I should have ran, I decided to just stand like an idiot and reload. The end. Long story short, I am pissed off at myself.

0.9.9.6 / [M|AoI|YAVP] A bit of a close call
« on: June 27, 2012, 03:57 »
I finally managed to get Eagerness Silver! Yayz! But I still has to get Lava Silver. =(

Anyway, the run. The run was somewhat uneventful. The main thing to note is how many exotics I found. 3 shockwave packs, 2 tristar blasters, an energy shield, a gothic armor set, I might have had more, but I forgot.

Sniper pack in Hell's Armory. Wanted to assemble the Plasmatic Combat Shotgun. As you can tell, it took a long time to actually get a power mod pack...and then I proceed to get 2 of them on the level before the SM.

The Railgun... *whistles* now THAT is a thing of beauty! It's ammo intensive, yeah, but if you get it on an AoMC run, can keep a steady stream of power cells and a few levels of finesse and reloader, you pretty much won the game. I mean, 64 damage, plasma damage thus halving enemy armor, piercing multiple enemies...used it to great efect against the Cyberdemon, even if I got hit a few times...

A few levels in Hell gave me a bit of trouble, especially level 21, where I had to run from acid...but literally right in front of me there was a ton of lava which I thought I couldn't really cross. I didn't know that running appearantly reduced damage taken from stepping on hazardous things, as I only too 6 damage from them (With tactical boots).

The SM I got hit exactly one time. when I messed up my running around the pillar while blasting here with the Plasmatic Combat Shotgun and Railgun. But she fell quite quickly anyway, and eagerness silver is mine.

Now, about Lava Silver, that's gonna be a pain to get...though arguably not so much more then, say, Spider Silver (Spider's Lair on AoD.) If I can get an onyx armor pack, I pretty much got Lava Silver as I simply assemble Lava Boots.

P.S. Is the Megasphere supposed to repair the energy shield? I picked one up while wearing a damaged Energy Shield, and the shield got repaired to full. Is that supposed to happen?

Century Lounge / [M|Ao100|YAAM] Assembly happy
« on: June 24, 2012, 08:24 »
I decided to play another Ao100 run on HNTR for two reasons:
1) To see how good a Sharpshooter build really is;
2) To get some assemblies and get closer to technician and armourer platinums and DIAMON-er, sorry, got too enthusiastic there. Diamonds.

The run was quite eventful, with lots of uniques, exotics (3 phaseshift armors in one run and 2 in one level? Really?) and, of course, enemies.

I don't know if I should be relieved or dissapointed, but no Cyberdemons, no lava elementals, 2 shamblers, 1 nightmare arch-vile which I did'nt even see and 1 agony elemental. Come on game, are you going easy on me?

A bunch of former complexed and arch-vile complexed did slow me down...a little bit.

The modded red armor? I wanted to get a fireshield, but no onyx mod packs...yeah.

All in all, I got these new assemblies: Assault Cannon, Hyperblaster, Cerberus Armor, Cerberus Boots, Demolition Ammo.

What next? Probably Ao100 on UV, gonna try and skip HMP.

0.9.9.6 / [M|AoP|99%|24|YASD] How did she kill me?!?
« on: June 19, 2012, 11:45 »
So, playing AoP again, trying to beat it (still not nearly as hard as AoI, let me tell you that).

I had such an epic run too. Hell's Arena no damage (Int2 is a MASSIVE help there), only got hit one time in The Wall because a Baron strayed a bit too low and hit me while covered, Anti-Freak Jackal, Grammaton Cleric Beretta (I seriously wished that I had taken Gun Kata at that point), first ever BFG10k (Leaving only the Dragonslayer among uniques to pick up to confirm that I got it).

Using the Anti-Freak Jackal for taking out long-range targets and the Nuclear Plasma Rifle for heavy-duty damage if an enemy got too close for comfort, I made it through most of the levels with relative ease.

Lava pits were a real pain because I only had 1 envirosuit and no phases. Somehow I walked through lava and eventually made it to more envirosuits. After that clearing the place out was a cakewalk.

At the end of level 23 I was out of med-packs and down to a mere 4% health (2HP). With the help of Int2, I snuck up on her, used the lava element and unleashed hell upon her. The invincibility ended faster than I expected, though. I had used up most of my weapons.

Here's the amazing part: I was at 84% health (42 health). I had onyx-modded red armor. The SM was at Mortally Wounded. I reloaded the Missile Launcher...and was killed instantly. Did the reload really last THAT LONG to give the SM god knows how many attacks killing me instantly? Ugh, and I wanted to get the Grammaton Cleric Cross as well... I think that if the reload really took that long, the only feasible action would have been to just run behind a corner, switch to the Anti-Freka Jackal that I haven't used yet and use that to bring her down to Almost Dead, switch to and reload the Beretta and then, using full automatic, kill her with that. Ugh...so close...

0.9.9.6 / [M|AoP|99%|16|YASD] Seething anger
« on: June 18, 2012, 14:46 »
A few days after the Aosh run, I went for another AoP run. I had a very great run, I had a missile launcher, a Grammaton Cleric Beretta, an assault shotgun, I was in a solid position to beat AoP for the first time.

Then I got to Spider's Lair. The problem is that I used up pretty much al of my rockets, which was pretty much my main damage-dealing method on the Cyberdemon. Well, it would have been had I not used everything up, leaving only the assault shotgun and the beretta against the heavily armoured juggernaut that was the Cyberdemon.

I actually got hin down to Severely wounded before he shot me and brutally murdered me. *sigh*. And I had such good items. An assault shotgun and a Grammaton Cleric Beretta...oh well.

Well, at least I have a solid idea of what to go for: Cateye build with missile launcher main and shotgun/tactical shotgun offhand with a chaingun/plasma rifle for backup.

0.9.9.6 / [M|AoSh|98%|YAFV] Bad start, great finish
« on: June 14, 2012, 09:42 »
Because appearantly dying to JC and not nuking him does NOT warrant me getting Shottyman Silver, I decided to rectify that mistake.

A major mistake happened early on: I forgot to enter Hell's Arena. That caused a major problem a bit later.

Burned through chained co8urt and a few other levels, getting a few phase devices when I decided I should go for Brick Silver (Beat The Wall on AoB, AoMr or AoSh, for those who forgot). Because I did'nt have double shotty, I was quickly overwhelmed and had to flee. That's where my 10 unkilled enemies come from.

Anomaly, while took a bit of damage, otherwise went without much trouble.

Assembled elephant gun on level 10, then tactical boots on level 12.

Jackhammer on level 12. I don't care what you say, it's beyond overpowered as a shotgun. However, a problem is that over usage of it will cause you to run low on ammo.

Against Cyberdemon I took a relatively low amount of damage. Don't get me wrong, I still took some, but the Jackhammer just riped him apart.

Yes, I took on Mortuary, and that's when ammo shortages REALLY became appearant. Had to actively use Elephant Gun, which helped. However, a few former sergeants did appear and die, dropping valuable ammo which allowed me to beat the legions of Arch-Vile-resurrected arachnotrons and barons of hell.

Shell box on level 23 pretty much saved me.

Level 21 (or 22) found both a nano AND a sniper pack. Left the sniper pack, used nano pack on red armor, then on level 23 made powered red.

Nuked SM, took on JC who fell VERY quickly against the Jackhammer. He did spawn a few wavs of enemies: Lost Souls, Cacodemons, Hell Knights, Revenants. None lasted more than 2 turns against the Jackhammer, and I beat JC without taking any damage because he almost did'nt even attack, just spawned enemies.

Now that I finally have that, gonna try and get Inquisitor Gold...again...
or maybe some of the angel-specific silvers (CoS on AoRA? Really?)

Discussion / The "Stupid Things that happened to me" thread.
« on: June 13, 2012, 04:53 »
When we play DoomRL, we can generally avoid doing some obvious things and do others. Avoid acid/lava, shoot enemies, use med packs when you need to and so forth.
For the most part.

Sometimes, though, you do something so unbelievably stupid that you just facepalm at the mere thought of doing that. Note that the thing that you post must be something that you wuld not do normally and it happened due to sheer stupidity, NOT due to the RNG screwing you over. I made this thread so people can talk about those without having to make a Mortem thread.

I was playing AoP on HNTR. The last few levels went very well, had a number of large med packs, some decent armor (Nano-modded red, was hoping for Powered red), when I got to the Cyberdemon. With my Gatling Gun + Eagle Eye (Cateye build, for anyone interested), I was doing well. But I had to start running when I got low. I got blasted by rocket splash damage, but was still in yellow. I got into position, started shooting...and got hit by a rocket that killed me instantly. Should have paid better attemtion to my health. And I was at a good position to win the game as well.

Pics optional, facepalming is not.
