  He came, he saw, but he left.

 95 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 90 of those were killed.

 5 souls destroyed the Mastermind...
 2 sacrificed itself for the good of mankind.
 1 killed the bitch and survived.
 2 showed that it can outsmart hell itself.

--------------------------------------------------------------

Well, uhh, this apparently took 62 tries.  At first I was mimicking some cool person by trying to get strong enough to do the Unholy Cathedral.  That never worked out very well...  So the new strategy was to just run like hell, find an invulnerability, run through the Mortuary to the Nuclear BFG without it being destroyed or my invulnerability wearing off because of being knocked around for all eternity, and just get to Dis.  I got to the Mortuary about half a dozen times but never quite got to the Nuclear BFG until this run.  Then it was relatively smooth sailing.

As far as I can recall, I've never attempted this before.  I had little time before dinner and I wanted to do something to lift my spirits.  And so I embarked on my quest.  I don't know if there's a standard gameplan for Sunrise Iron Fist, so I just copied the speedrunning plan and simply unequipped the chainsaw.  I though I was such a genius when I stopped to assemble some fireproof red armor for Cyberdemon (yeah...)

Overall this was a lot easier than it sounded like it would be.  I got my warrant officer promotion from this.  Still need 5 pistol kills for Mancubus rank...

It took about half a dozen attempts which failed at various points (one at cyberdemon, one just shy of Cybie thanks to a swarm of lost souls, another just shy of Dis thanks to an arachnotron, etc.).  And I swear, every single time I'd either accidentally enter the wall (not a big deal) or city of skulls (also not that big of a deal) or the Halls of Carnage (a fairly big deal) which I entered here.  Also lava pits, but that's just a small step to the stairs.  I hit two arachnotron caves in a row, and I finished with a vile complex because the game hates me.

I've always heard such good things about Malicious Blades, so I thought I'd give it a shot, though deep down I knew I wouldn't get far enough to get it.  I'm really not used to playing with dodge master.  With 6% health and an imp at the edge of my vision, I tried to kill it.  Just like that, I died.  The late chained court appearance gave me a bit of hope that I'd be strong enough to beat it, but instead I didn't even make it there.

Level 4 was an asshole level, where I spawned next to a pain elemental which I wasn't able to defeat before getting mildly swarmed by lost souls.  It wouldn't be that big of a deal because I was carrying over a supercharge, but to make things annoying, there were barrels all around me, and imps and formers and then hell knights decided to pay a visit.  I used up three small medpacks before finally (homing) phasing out of there.  Because I am who I am, I then went back through the level to deliver some payback, which actually worked out well enough.  A pair of steel boots got blown up unfortunately.  I still wonder what the best armor would be at this point.  Red for imps is overkill, and blue for hell knights actually isn't that important because I'm usually pretty good at fighting them like a coward and not getting hit.  So I usually stick to green for formers.

Requests For Features / Safety mode
« on: March 31, 2012, 15:59 »
Ahh, the core of what I want, as discussed here.  I want to be able to press a key to turn on a "safety mode", and then the game would require prompt you to press enter to continue whenever I would do something that would cause the game to stop auto-running (except walking over items or by doors), such as when trying to step on a lava square or when an enemy comes into view.  Then after acknowledging the prompt it kicks you out of safety mode and you can step into the lava or fight the enemy or continue reloading or whatever.  It probably should let you walk on lava and acid just fine if you're immune, but then it should stop you if you have an envirosuit/invincibility that is about to run out (assuming that's the only reason you're immune, and perhaps auto-running in general should work like this).

Just to be perfectly clear: it would provide pretty much the same safety features as auto-running/mouse traveling.  Like how auto-run won't make you walk into lava if that's where you're heading, safety mode will prompt you if you attempt that.  Like how auto-run will stop when you see an enemy, safety mode will prompt you when an enemy appears.  It doesn't play the game for you, it doesn't save you from fighting a sergeant while standing next to a barrel, it doesn't save you from reloading a minigun while surrounded by barons, and it doesn't affect you if you don't press the key to turn it on.  We have an option to require a prompt if the user attempts to fire without any ammo, so that they won't accidentally walk when they wanted to shoot.  I think this is basically the same principle.

22
Following this discussion I decided to go ahead and request this feature.  I hate auto-running across a room when I have Int2, yet not stopping until the enemies are actually seen (and when they actually see me).  It should probably be a config option, because it could be unwanted for enemies across a wall to stop auto-running.

It would also be nice to stop auto-running when enemies seen by tracking data are really close.  It's a little fuzzier to determine when to stop because the range of tracking data is the entire map, but I'd say "when the enemy would be seen from the destination square" would be a decent condition for stopping.

Oh, something else: it would also be nice for auto-running to stop when you see a door open since that most likely indicates danger.

I was going for a Cateye build, picking up eagle eye so my chaingun would kick some ass.  I beat Arena Master without much problem despite not being melee focused.  Next level, lots of enemies starting next to me, a sergeant blew up a barrel, then I'm dead.  The main conclusion I can draw from all my failed games is that I can't do rapid-fire builds very well.  I've complained about this before, but it really bugs me that none of the rapid-fire master traits require eagle eye.  I don't like detouring from the master trait path.

Not much to say.  I finally got my non-ITYTD win for this version - I've been playing Ultra-Violence and dying in the Chained Court and whatnot lately.  I carried around a ton of weapons just for fun, really.  I had the acid spitter for several levels but never so much as loaded it.  Never used the napalm launcher (which replaced my missile launcher which replaced my rocket launcher) either, and since I didn't think things through, I was lucky enough to find another rocket launcher right before the Vaults for busting purposes.  Early on I was carrying a ton of mods waiting for Whizkid 2, which combined with my huge weapon and ammo stash meant I was dumping med-packs.  Finding the onyx mod was probably better than a nano mod since it solved my armor problems permanently.  I actually had only one large med-pack for several levels, but really once I had Vampyre in Hell I was fine.

I don't even know why I carried all that plasma and those BFGs.  I made some use of the nuclear plasma rifle and very rarely used my regular plasma rifle, but the only BFG shot I used the whole game was a nuclear BFG shot against JC to open up the fight.

I had a hell of a time with Hell's Arena, spending most of the time at less than 20% health, but I cleared it with a lot of care and corner shooting after taking a few blasts to the face and a bit of demon clawing.

I sort of thought I'd have an easier time with the Chained Court by meleeing the crap out of everything from the beginning.  Not quite.  3 of the 4 barons went down easily, but my strategy of running straight for the arena master ended up getting me filled with tons of lead.  So I think I need a new strategy for this.  Maybe kill the barons with the chainsaw, then camp out a bit and shoot a lot of the formers, then grab one or both berserk packs and head for the arena master.  Or maybe I should USE THAT ROCKET LAUNCHER!

Well, I entered City of Skulls.  That, uhh, that's probably all that needs to be said to explain what happened.  The game was being so nice up until the prior level, then it started spawning pain elementals (and their lost souls destroyed my tactical set).  Anyway, in a desperation move, I took off my armor, hoping I would be able to outrun the lost souls.  Nope.  So just to tell myself what I already knew before entering: gravity boot sharpshooter can take on the City of Skulls, normal Gun Kata dude cannot.  On the note of Gun Kata, I need to dodge more.

And just to taunt me, the game spawned the butcher's cleaver on the same level as the City of Skulls. I knew I should have done AoB.

Well, if I'm not mistaken, this is my first Ultra-Violence attempt ever.  Phobos Base entry was a bit shocking, with the multiple sergeants and buffed accuracy of the formers.  I was lucky not to have any former commandos on level 2.  Hell's Arena wasn't too bad.  Due to some stupidity on my end, I walked into the line of sight of cacodemons a couple of times.  The barons were a piece of cake with corner shooting and running around the pillars.  On level 3, I spawned next to a hell knight/imp pack, which had me freaked out at first, but I took it down, along with other hell knights.  Then on the next level, there were more hell knights and stuff.  Because of the increased enemy spawning and my slightly slower play for the increased difficulty, nearly all the health packs ended up in the hands of enemies...

This time I started off with the Juggler detour for a little bit more early power, then moved on to Brute.  I was really hoping to get Berserker before the Chained Court, but that unfortunately did not happen.  Because of my melee focus, I probably should have chainsawed the barons, but I decided to corner shoot.  I was corner shooting one of them, and got distracted by a former, so I killed him.  But the baron had turned the corner, so I went out and got his attention again, and then got back into position.  But on my way back to the doorway, another of the barons saw me and started kicking my ass.  I decided to retreat back into the building, and grabbed a berserk pack, then moved for the chainsaw.  But a damn baron destroyed it!  And so I started retreating hopelessly and I was killed.  The end.  Those barons actually were knocking me around a lot, so Badass might have actually been a good idea...

First note, I'm really sorry to disappoint, but I accidentally left two sergeants alive in the Halls of Carnage.  I forgot to wait for the lava to kill them ;_;

There's not a whole lot to say except that, yes, I resorted to playing on ITYTD to break my losing streak, and I tried to hurry through it and still be an asskicking conqueror (damn you slow lava).  I didn't want to specialize in any weapon, so I grabbed Eagle Eye mainly so I could be competent with rapid-fire.  My missile launcher was pretty much just serving wall-breaking duty, like always.  Once I had my trait loadout, my nuclear plasma rifle was my favorite weapon just to watch it chew through everything and regenerate its ammo.  Plus since all my 10mm and shells were in ammo packs, it was annoying to use anything else near the end.

Mildly funny story in the end though.  I used an invulnerability glove I picked up on level 23 to nuke spidey, and I was going to then nuke JC.  So I enter the Hell Fortress, open my inventory, and pull out my nuclear BFG to... oh yeah, that's in the Mortuary, which wasn't available... So I pulled out my regular BFG and just killed him the old-fashioned way.  Well, I thought it was funny.

Urgh... Last few games, I haven't had any luck.  So I figured I'd just camp out in the central building again, but I waited a long time there, killing all the formers and hell knights as they appeared.  I wanted to pretty much clear the level before taking on the arena master.  The first sign of trouble should have been when I thought I already killed all four hell knights pretty close to the start, though I wasn't really paying as much attention as I should have to know if it actually was a respawn, so I ignored it.  A bit later, a posse of formers comes up to the door, and I see one of them respawn.  "Huh, the arena master must be close."  Yes he was, and he shortly thereafter walked up to the doorway.  I should have slammed it in his face and ran for the chainsaw, but I panicked a bit and started shooting.  He bombed the shit out of me, and I phased away, healed up a bit, put on my red armor, and started running back to the center building for my precious berserk source.  I tried to circle around the back, but the arena master saw me so I bolted for the doorway.  I think I forgot to activate running...  And once again, I forget to try out the rocket launcher against the arena master.

I am so close to just playing an ITYTD game, just to get a win on this new profile.  I'll probably find a way to screw that up.

Yes, yes I will have trouble with that swarm of lost souls.  As it turns out my detour to Finesse and Juggler meant I didn't get Berserker before the Hellgate, and considering I often have Vampyre before leaving there this was a bit of an issue, but it was still easily conquerable.  So I figured I'd trigger the wall drop and run back to the door, which was a big mistake.  On the way there, the lost souls were just tearing me up; I should have just shotgunned them from the beginning and taken a few hits, but damn I forgot how fast they were.  In a panic, I used my staff, healed with a small medpack (because I am too much of a hoarder to use my large ones this early), and got mauled to death before I could use my fire stick again.  That staff would be the best counter to lost soul swarms if it weren't for their large fire resistance; I hoped that being grouped up would mean they would all die, but alas most did not.  I would think after clearing The Wall so easily (my chaingun mowed down the hell knights, and a good amount of shotgunnery behind my excellently crafted corner took care of the barons, with some backup from my chainsaw), I could have been smart enough to get past those lost souls.  The bruiser bros might have been an issue without Berserker, but that's where rockets come in.

Thus continues my losing streak, even after going down to HNTR.  I guess I'm rusty.  In case you're curious, I was saving those agility mod packs for some potential assembly mischief (spoiled for those who want to learn on your own):

Who knows when that would have happened though, because I was already behind on my Vampyre schedule, and Whizkid would still be two levels away as well (three for Whizkid 2 if I wanted to mod my awesome assembly, which I probably would).
