Nightmare! / [N!|AoMC|92%|YAVP] How come I didn't PWN?
« on: September 06, 2018, 13:38 »
Well, N! is frikking stressful. Not just you're unable to save, but monsters replenish their ranks with tremendous speed. And, is it just me, or N! respawn speed increases over time? The run was never decided won, once I managed to survive with 1HP left (2%) vs a mancubus, wiped him for good then ate a medkit and went onward. But, I was granted a single piece of equipment that pretty much carried me through Hell (albeit as a support device) - the ever-desired Plasma Shotgun. Dam, it was a lifesaver in the Mortuary, which I cleared well and tidy as a result, while not having access to that nuclear BFG. For some reason a homing phase device decided to land me on top left set of stairs instead of top right where BFG rests, so I had to wade through a lot and a real lot of enemies. I managed to stockpile a really big set of weapons and ammo off them formers, but an ever-increasing stream of mancubi, revenants and viles cut me out of that pile of phat lewt so I eventually ran out of every kind of ammo - except rockets, as I had a revenant in my rear periodically reviving and supplying me with rockets. I managed to cut me out of an avalance of barons and hell knights with about 20 rockets, and ran out of them as well - but a former sergeant was kind enough to not get plasmated, so I grabbed all the shells he donated and played wall of force. Sadly, with a tac and no Rel the force wasn't enough to cover all sides, so while I was fighting the upper left, a former managed to sneak up on me from below, dropping me to 38% and damaging me my red armor. I blasted him with whatever that remained in my ever-unloaded tac shotty, looted his plasmagun and FINALLY managed to touch the ammo - yaaaay, back to full power! BLAST'EM! Then it was rather simple, with AoMC up MY sleeve and about 1000 power cells from all sources, I was wrecking any single monster with a volley of plasma bolts then a cleanup with shotty - rest in pieces, har har. That battle lasted me a good deal of 40 minutes of careful evaluation of what can shoot me and what can't, and one mistake could easily be the end.

Here, behold the mighty pile of loot:
Code: [Select]
There is a chaingun (1d6)x4 [40/40] lying here.                               
 There is a plasma rifle (1d7)x6 [0/40] lying here.

Should have pressed F10 I think - colored, it looks a whole lot better.

Overall, the run was pretty fruitless - a SINGLE A-pack, three P-packs (first on lv17 went into a tac shotty, two more on BFG and plasma shotty, just in case), 4 or so bulk and a slew of tech packs, one vest, a plasma shotgun, and that's ALL. Dam, Hell, maybe you should be a lil more generous next time? And this with all levels walked through - I didn't bother with YAAMing, after all it's Nightmare! and my first relatively successful run (there was another but I went to Halls of Carnage and N! halls have nightmare cacos that fried my doomguy, so this time I skipped it), just finishing is already good enough.

And... how come I didn't get Hell Arena Pwnage badge? What hit me when I wasn't looking? I thought I did get it this time.

Post Mortem / [U|AoSh|92%|YAVP] Gatekeeper Diamond and out of ammo
« on: September 06, 2018, 00:15 »
First, I wished this to be a YAAM, but had to flee a caco cave at lv19, thankfully started a few steps away from the stairs. Skipping a few, no need to wipe everything, so I went to Mortuary - hum, no, too hot, I tapped a homie and ended up in a mob, but jumping down the stairs saved my ass from being ripped apart. Then I've got two pain elem caves in a row at 22 and 23, with measly two packs of shells total. But I managed to keep one box intact for Spidey.

Otherwise, the game was smooth at first, to my amusement I have found that Shottyman and Double Shotty allows me to tackle them nightmare demons in Phobos Lab without too much hassle, even if they don't get full blast in their face. I tried the same in Hell's Armory, but had to chew medpacks like candies while that brute decided to constantly fire at me at wrong moments. It also shone in Abyssal Planes, even if that agony elemental had a ton of HP and some armor, everything else got wiped out, the best property of shotguns :P I wish I'd build me an elephant gun, but sort of fumbled early, then wanted to wait for WK2, then was in a distress and made a FDS/P instead, however that puppy was a lifesaver at the very next level, with as few as 4x15 walkable squares and two BV packs right off the bat.

The funniest thing was Hell lv1 (also lv17) with "You need to run", and 0.33s walking speed with phaseshift/A and tac boots with HR2. I was able to sprint, wipe everyone then get almost to the start of the level to collect ammo. The hardest encounter was Spider's Lair, they triple-teleported me when I was finally at a cornershooting position, and that Medical Powerarmor which I managed to strip off a former commando at 8% was the ultimate heal that allowed me to survive (I had 4HP left when hunting for the last arachnotron), then a reward supercharge allowed me to continue. Sadly, missed Mastermind Brain by a single move in the middle of a fight, show have covered self. Well, maybe next time.

And finally, the GK Diamond was a result of a very lucky phase into the middle of the level and spamfiring from a tac shotty first into that door on the left, then into bruisers on the right. The Cyberdemon is all about timing, but firing a double from 2 squares away right after he throws a rocket is easy with huge runspeed.

Boy how does AoMC make everything easier! First I ran a HNTR run with these settings, even managed a YAFW by nuking JC, but it seems my Doomguy is kinda bloothirsty, so I went onward to UV. Lost once in CC due to two barons coming at me at once, and me failing to grab a zerk to get protection (it doesn't heal you but it still makes you resistant), then rolled an amazingly good set of enemies on lv2, and overall a HUGE amount of rare stuff helpful everywhere, Literally made me sort of cakewalk the entire game, once I landed the MCe. Sadly, no phases in Phobos so I had to tackle Anomaly with a rocketjump - this time forward, anyway those medkits and globes are of zero help on AoMs, landed just outside the wall, so was safe from direct shooting, and picked all of stuff then both bruisers from pretty much afar. Either Hell's Armory or a vault in Phobos provided me wih a duelist armor, which got modded into APT eventually and kept until the end, Armory dropped me a plasma schematic (OW, should have tried better to assemble it earlier!) and a nano pack (really a gift from God! This spells "HELL, NOW YOU WILL GET LOOSE!" harder than any BFG!), which, with a single level of Whizkid I managed to scrounge back then (I still wanted HR/HR/DM before Cybie) rested on a plasma rifle with two bulk packs.

The Hell went quite smoothly. With gained WK2 I've built me a tac/A boots, a duelist armor with A and with two levels of Hellrunner I was moving at incredible 0.33s/step, I even had to hold my steps for UC to let CHARGING LOST SOULS catch up to me to whack them one at a time! Let alone them demons. I have decided to prepare a B-modded knife just for the whacks in UC, that thing really helped in making bigger holes in Angel of Death, I didn't even break sweat throwing those knives. One nice thing, AoD dies before your missile lands to the floor, so if you use a modded knife to finish him, you'll retain it. So I kept the Scythe, just in case - don't recall swinging it tho. The Vaults awarded me with Enviroboots - YAAAAY, no need to use envirosuits and sweating in Lava Pits that you might miss that carriable invulnerability! The Mortuary - I went in with a P-modded BFG, a B2N1 plasmagun and a ton of cells from previous arachnotron cave, and went left as there were visible viles. Cleared there, blasting several hundred power cells down the drain, then cautiously proceeded right, picking out any stragglers with plasma gun and whacking them en masse with BFG. Ran out of cells there, but not before picking a nuke-BFG AND wrecking all viles, so went with plasma, also picking last B-pack to make a nanomanufacture plasmagun. Hell level 7 had a Baron don a Medical Powerarmor, nearly bashed it into pieces before that brute went down, and Deimos level 7 had me a GCB - a ridiculous AoMC whacking gun, esp if you'd decide to invest in SoG. So I've tried to get Grammaton Cleric Cross, and succeed in a very weird manner - GCB was in my offhand, still I've got it awarded.

I wonder tho, should I have tried nuking the Mastermind with GCB in hand to get that cross, then whack JC (I believe I'd easily put him out of misery, esp with Azrael's in hand and Angelic on top - 4 hits and he'd be history) to have a full win, or would it not grant me that medal?

And finally, got Conqueror despite not getting that backpack, but really killing everything else on the level. You can see it spells in mortem "he fled Containment Area". I really don't like the trap in there, on UV it has about 8 barons and an archvile, and without a phase or another means of getting away (I dropped the combat translocator in favor for more ammo for chaingun, and didn't get phases until next level) I would likely get toasted. But the game said I completed it, and awarded me a conqueror badge. :D

After a successful Ao100 run with pistols I have decided to start tackling weapon challenges. Of course, started with AoMr, as I've got quite some experience with them pistols. First run went decent up to somewhere like lv14, with a P-modded combat pistol, and then all of a sudden I've got killed, cornered or something. That hurt! Several more tries, and I have done it with a blaze.

I wonder if I should have used Fin-Fin-WK instead of both spending levels to Int-Int and SoB-SoB. But as I have managed to find in Ao100, knockback rules, but you need to hit stuff to protect yourself with knockback. So I ended up with a starting P-modded pistol (with a backup of B-modded "really starting" pistol hanging in there in case this one would overheat or something), an ammo chain, and a powered red armor fresh from Hell's Armory. Lucky find I say, beats combat pistol in usefulness. You WILL get hit in Hell, regardless of what you do, except for maybe 2Dev or who won N! damageless. And there, weapons matter little, armor matters a lot.

One good thing I had is jump at Mortuary with a homie and about 20 turns of invulnerability, that was even enough to wreck a couple of viles that went right after me - two or three, still once anything fatter started appearing, I went outside. That device allowed me to tackle JC - and with an ordinary pistol, and without sufficient back-up, this was quite an ordeal. Good thing that if you shoot at 0.2s, the armor starts to repair itself before you get hit again, so it lasted me the whole battle. Also a nice thing that I've stumbled on a very lucky ammo chain in Hell lv7, where I first decided to bail out due to lack of ammo, but then seeing a chaingunner (YAY!) revived my hopes to clear the level - still something hid out of my sight. Oh well.

Oh yep, I've got Arena Gold with this run - me VERY happy. Really, people, how to fight on the Arena damageless at all? I only managed this feat once, and with a combat shotgun from a lucky lv2 vault.

And finally. At this particular moment in time, I don't believe I have a healthier or more deeply-felt respect for any object in the universe than this here pistol. Not even to a nuke-BFG.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

One word: Exhausted.

Three words: My "F" button hurts!

Many words: Well, not too big of a story, but still there is some.
First, playing AoMC inclined me to run with a Cateye build, but with pistols instead of rapid fire, well, unless I'd find me a worthy gun. It ended up pistols be more fun and more capable of protecting my humble body than any rapidfire could possibly be. 0.1s (0.09s?) per shot, up to 26 damage, and not even three MV packs on my head are enough to kill me, two can't even touch me as they get either pushed outwards, or killed in place. The bad thing though, is that I had to flee out of 2 levels that had nightmare 'trons, as these are known doomguy killers, and there are tons of them for a single weapon, no matter how great, to hold them at bay. Maybe a P-modded nanomanufacture combat pistol would be able to make me stand ground, but no nano packs in all hundred levels. Sadface.

The most spectacular moment was on level 100, which had 2 Cyberdemons staring down my barrel right off the start. I slammed a homie (I had 2, and a nuke, should there be an invulnerability), judged the layout and decided to stand ground. Should have reconsidered probably, as the level was teleporting stuff at my side every soo often. One of the teleported monsters blasted me from off my sight, ruining any cover, then cybies waltzed in, one got put down with my pistol, the other got a baron at his back, was hit by him and didn't expect that by all of what's his heart is made of. Ha ha.
Code: [Select]
Boom! You dodge! The missile hits the Cyberdemon. The Cyberdemon dies.The most strange thing is that while I have an OP armor on my shoulders, I still have no onyx packs recorded in the statistics. The armor is frikking OP indeed, even if it's slow, it took heat off my head for sooo much, I might still qualify for an Iron Skull, should it be awardable in Ao100.

The most glorious battle was at level 99 (or 98), with a cave full of agony elementals. The only time nuclear BFG shined more than my pistol, as there was too many souls and elementals to be able to dwindle their numbers with pistol(s) alone. Good thing the BFG recharges 1 ammo per action, as this enables pistol builds to regenerate it the fastest.

The best decision was to build a demolition ammo conbat pistol. The firestorm pack was a singleton across all Hell, and small corpse removal utility was the very thing I needed to fight BBVV packs. The worst decision was to carry plasma rifles and ammo across half of Hell instead of plain relying on 10mm ammo up front. I was preparing to build a nanomanufacture laser rifle just in case, but otherwise everything non-pistol went obsolete after I've completed demolition ammo. It blows holes and they stay tiny, and barrels around don't care.

And probably I should not have taken any levels in Iro... but just in case.

The start was plain AWESOME. Not a single monster in sight, a duelist armor in sight, a boots plus an agility pack just a tad north, another ammo chain to keep that minigun fed, and a very open level to boot. And a Tracking Map on top!!! No viles tho, so no easy XP. But, one of the hell knights got his claws on a bullet proof vest. S***, but he wasn't into blasting me all the way into the lava, so I survived with my armor half torn. Got two knives, so dared to jump into UC. Dam, that Angel of Death even with scout, +10 from boots and +15 from armor, and IIRC a level of Hellrunner is pretty fast, even got me once cornered! But eventually I managed to lock him into running after me in circles, while I was all like "run-run-use knife-throw knife-run-run", thanks to AoMC this was not too long, as almost every knife would hit, and some would hit for more than 1... or all of them hit for 2? I did get a SoB level by that time.

Level 1 also awarded me with a rocket launcher, so there was a sudden use for all those RMs roaming Hell, at least I could sculpt levels as I see fit, not them. Sadly, got a "khe-khe" level twice, one of them probably got a lava river with a barrel standing on the bridge, or soooo many barrels lined up, so when I got to reach the right side of it, there was an impenetrable field of lava blocking my path further. Good thing is that stairs down were just on its edge, so I could get there without getting me hot. So, no YAAM, although I tried shooting rockets over there, got a baron killed, maybe a former, but there was at least a single hV pack in the distance.

And then level 3 dropped me a nuclear plasma! YAY I could try wrecking JC! Well, nice try - no white stuff on Hell lv7 or lv6, or maybe they got blown up, as lv6 was another barrel level. Got to dance some distance vs cacodemons, shotgunners and revenants, an arachno cave proved to be decently difficult, but nothing a rocket could remedy - while you don't get hit, of course. Ammo problems were long gone, other than playing cat and mouse there was no serious difficulty except the start of level 5, where my intuition was just enough to display two hV packs together right behind an open corner. Luckily, the outermost former was shootable, so I blasted there a rocket... khe, he, he, what a mess! Viles got wiped with two volleys from my happy trigger plasma gun. And vs Mastermind on AoMC you just need to land a single volley, he'd flinch and you'll be safe. The Minigun on AoOC is just too funny to not to use. Har, har, har.

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

After about five years of not touching this, I finally gathered enough strength, nostalgia and will to ever delve into a procedurally generated Hell. First, completing Doom 1 and Doom 2 on UV with no saves mid-level. Then I remembered, "Hey, there's a Doom game that wants you to do like that!".

I really wonder how do people ever manage damageless kills in melee, esp on Hell Arena. Every attempt I try either gets me eaten, or I lose all my armor and medkits and run further on whatever I collect as Arena reward. This run I was heavily using knife throwing on Arena, three seemed to be about the right number to wield. Still got hit into the red before wrecking the last cacodemon, and it was even with the lucky red armor I found on level 2 in a vault with some lost souls.

Really, I don't remember the game giving me as many uniques before! My first win was a normal HNTR with as much as 6 uniques, this time it was three, and 4 times I got invulnerability to use a nuke, which I really planned for only at the gates of Dis, getting two in a row. Also I got blessed with quite a decent number of packs, including an onyx, so I rushed WK2 right after getting master trait. Still even a double chainsaw loses against UC's weapons... except for the sound, of course. BRRRRZZZZZZZZ!

The funniest thing in the run happened at Limbo, where I have already arrived with OP red armor. Any hit off a Vile triggers berserk, then I only get 1 damage from any single source (probably excluding lava), and each my move made a lot of enemies fly all sides just because a lot of mancubi were around, as well as other AoE shooting stuffs. So, I walk, they fly, I walk, they fly again, if I'm in luck, a corpse gets destroyed in crossfire, or a baron of hell, or at least an imp. I like fried mancubus smell, but I don't like having to suffer when they toss themselves into lava from their own blasts against my FACE! Had to run over lava to put down a vile tossed there like that, they don't frikking die in there.

Hmm... probably I would punch barrels just to get tossed into berserk state...

PS: Never *drop* a nuke into the lava, USE it there if you're invulnerable - a mere note to self. Good thing I've got two.

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

This costed me a bunch of nerves and a rage quit before I could ever start this. At Hell-7 I had to run past a revenant without any other route, and at Phobos Anomaly those cacos were too liberal with shots so that they left the majority of souls at my heels. The Brothers were not so liberal, and they left me with 3% red armor prior to me descending finally. Got several invulnerability orbs greatly placed, and a homing phase to take prior to Halls of Carnage, so I took the BFG all the way to Spider - not if it had any effect. The other homing phase was right past that rev on Hell-7, so I warped out instead of getting fried. Whew.

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

The only time I could screw the game over was when I have finally found a nano pack, and thought about assembling a cybernano armor instead of nanomachic weapon. A firestorm was hoarded for some time already, so I was happy adding MOAR DAKKA. From there it was a steady downhill, especially after a couple of Ironman traits. The most fun was a lava elemental cave, when those stupid STUPID E's all teleport into my vicinity, but none fired while I was chaingunning them all saying "DAKKA DAKKA DAKKA! U wer stoopid, now u ar stoopid and DEAD!" (was reading about "more dakka" in the meantime and had a lot of fun). A nanomachic napalm launcher would be great too, or a laser rifle. Thankfully I got an onyx pack a lot earlier than a nano pack, so a PO red armor brought me up to level 90 when I finally went over the wait and slapped an A over it.

The only thing else to say is that it's tedious past level 50, but never a torture, even in NM arachno caves. Also this game costed me an argument with my wife, so I'll refrain from playing that long... at least for some time. :)

well, the subject pretty much says it all. I am now playing U/Ao100, and on one level I pushed an archvile into the lava with a shotgun, it appears to be completely surrounded, but does not take damage from it and does not attempt to move. I wonder if this behavior is intended. (I'd expect archvile to either ignore liquids if immune, or take damage and eventually die if not.)

This was my first serious attempt when I had to stomp the habit of asskicking anything and everything, so a big part of Hell was skipped. I missed the stairs to Mortuary, and didn't do Spider's Lair (going for exp mainly), so I had no nuke up to Hell-7, where it luckily dropped, so I went clearing it for good. I was lucky enough to get both onyx and nano packs, and a handful of power packs to feed two doomguys - well, there was only one in Hell that time ;) so I waited for WK2 and slapped me a cybernano = everyone else is DEAD. I say DEAD, hey archvile, DEAD! I'M the badass here, not you! JC was a pushover as berserk triggered the very first moment he fired at me - I was either under lava element (lucky phase threw me at JC's heels after blowing up Mastermind) or just out of invulnerability, so I said 'RIP AND TEAR', and teared through two hell barons and JC himself before other six had a chance to fire.

I was pursuing the gold badge primarily, and I'm glad it went out good after a handful of very early deaths. You need armor with AoB. Perhaps taking TaN over Fin at level 4 would do a lot towards survivability... but Fin gives me speed to bash the demon before he bashes me.

Just got me a nano pack in AoS Hell Armory, and slapped it over my shotty in an intention to make a nanoshrapnel, but it still goes like normal, reloading from shottyman on movement, not reloading at all either via wait or reload or say if I unequip something. (No it does reload but after a painful interval of ~5.0s - should it be like that at all?) Anyway if it's not a nanopack bug, then a shottyman bug instead, it should not reload an unreloadable shotty.

 8 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 6 of those were killed.

 2 souls destroyed the Mastermind...
 1 killed the bitch and survived.
 1 showed that it can outsmart hell itself.

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

My first AoB try at 0.9.9.6, somehow I have managed to reach the Arena with bot large medpacks intact and the majority of my armor, and clear the Arena without dying. Maybe I've got lucky with knife throws, somehow I feel that I miss too much with Brute 2 and knife throws - maybe throwing, while taking melee toDam bonuses, still uses range accuracy PLUS decrease, so the base chance of me hitting something with a knife is 50%-dodge? Still, with Arena defeated, I've got to Chained Court with open mods, the Arena Master welcomed me by approaching - well, a chainsaw is there exactly for him! :P Large health globes now give berserk on AoB in 0.9.9.6, so whacking at the ambush in Anomaly went like that, I ate a globe, exited toeards upper wall, met them souls and cacodemons, started hitting and recharged my berserk... whew. The Bruiser Brothers were less peaceful as I've been expecting, because when I have met them at the corner of the exploded wall, the other Brother went out of his brother's back and fired at me - ugh, knocked back me and him, letting them to take free shots. Grrr. Still, they went down.

Hell's Armory gave me just the Acid Spitter and a bunch of blue armor to replace my crumbling supplies, while I had an envirosuit to grab the supercharge. I was later attempting to employ Acid Spitter as a means to cross a river of acid - but the damn thing did not want to recharge!!! Next level gave me the Trigun - yeahhh, if only I'll get me some invulnerabilities to boot. So far I was killing anything and everything with relative ease, although some circling around the pillars and walls was required. I have mistaken the passage to City of Skulls with Spider Lair and went in - yep, immediate phasing outta lever is the key to survive. One blue armor was completely eaten, but the skulls were wiped out. A BFG? What for? :) With the Trigun handy, I had no need walking into spider's lair. At Deimos level 7 I had attempted to employ berserk from large globe to somewhat safely face the Cyberdemon, and used a homing phase - no gain, still, hugging a pillar helped a lot, managed to catch sight of the bada$$ and sneak to him without being knocked back too much. Boom, dead cyberdemon.

The first level of Hell was an arachnotron cave - but I popped close to two out of 3 (?) spiders who had no chance to act prior to me... BZZZZT! Got me a double chainsaw just before fighting the Cathedral - probably was an overkill, but since there was no nano/onyx packs, that was a way to employ power packs into something useful. The next level popped me into a rivered arachnotron cave with one at my side, a great open area and three to four sniping me from the other side. The things got hairy, I have decided to phase to their side - no way, I have decided to pass through the river with Acid Spitter in hands - no way, not only that acid hurts, but it doesn't go away and the weapon doesn't protect at all. Painful I say. Had to retreat into the available stairs to Vaults and abandon the YAAM attitude. I was so disappointed at this that I completely forgot I have the Staff in my lap, so I left at once. The Hell level 5 gave me the shivers, 4 mancubi, 2 revenants, 2 archviles in a large empty room - it was a game of volleyball with me as the ball, but red/200% and berserk negated their damage to 1/shot, while the viles took full damage from mancubi rockets. The Invulnerability globe left at the far left of the map, close to stairs to Mortuary was a godsend I think, so I blew it up to smithereens. Next level gave me two globes and a nuke of a normal kind, I've blasted the Mastermind with it. I had to go to Lava Pits for that, with both globes it wasn't hard before I got me the Enviroboots and envirosuits for protection. Hell-7 was devoid of invulnerabilities and archviles - hello Mom, see that nuke? And look, I have a lava element! Unfortunately it didn't last to the stairs to JC, or I'd have nuked him too, still he went down to Longinus+Angelic with ease.

I have so far played one game of 0.9.9.6 HNTR, got my usual two BFG9Ks, and for some reason got TWO nano packs (thanks for the second one RNG, as I was stupid to splat my power armor in the Mortuary), but the statistics screen shows me finding 1 BFG9K and 1 nano pack. The same for power armor combined statistics, I did two of them while only one gets added. I have a mortem that states me assembling two of the power armor.

0.9.9.5 / [E|YAAM] Fist-only
« on: February 26, 2012, 23:43 »
After lurking some time here, reading strategies and other stuff I have decided to tackle fist-only ITYTD game. I have read Juggler strategy from Tormuse and seeing it be very easy, I tried tackling it with a chainsaw offhand and a pistol in primary hand. While I have won, the only badge was UAC bronze, so the bug that the strat was using has obviously been fixed. This run was straight fist-only except for an occasional rocket to redesign a level (one severely harmed a cacodemon behind the wall (!) which nearly spoiled the run, thankfully only the killing blow matters) and a pistol to blast a door. I had tremendous luck with invulnerability globes, got three in a row prior to Cyberdemon which lasted into Hell level 2 after IDDQD-punching the big guts outta him, one or two in Hell level 4 (next level went a breeze, an arachnotron cave would be a trouble otherwise) and two in Hell level 6 (that was an arachnotron cave too) which last me enough to nuke the hell out of Hell level 7 (that presumably had a RVRVR pack in there), go for the exit (stupid me having HPDs in inventory... constantly forgetting to use them when I can) and punch out thwe legs off Mastermind without it wearing out.

I have tried diamond game first but all my tried end up at Phobos-4 or alike. Maybe I should learn playing DOOMRL a little more to tackle diamonds?
