Not true, the first time I found the BFG10K I only blew up some of my cover and health with an errant shot. I recovered, but was then too terrified to touch the weapon again without full invulnerability.

There are some powers man was never meant to wield.

Suck it up, learn from your mistakes, and try again from the beginning. (If you had already had TaN, Cybernetic armor isn't worth the movement penalty.) Save scumming will only make you a sloppier player in the long run and lace any victory with the bitterness of lies.

Homing, sure. And I also would have survived if I'd used a large med-pack, immediately shot the revenant down, used my envirosuit pack, or (I think) stepped further into the lava out of the revenants view. Instead I underestimated the damage I could take in one turn vs my 80 maxhp and thought I'd sensibly step out of the lava first.

At least I earned a new silver badge?

Move in AoB maybe, but I don't have any problem with them during a standard run; get near 'em and wait for a shot works fine, and I'd probably take more damage from the other formers without the immediate shotgun. It's not like you can't just restart if you get blasted too much in the first ten seconds. :P

I was so perfect. I could shoot down anything within one second. I could blast special levels to pieces with BFGs to spare. I could punch through walls in a couple of never-ending volleys. I could shrug off mancubi barrages or I could clear entire floors without even being touched. I could heal, skip levels, anything. I had everything.

Except decent footwear.

Sigh.

I spawned at the edge of maze level, near the stairs and a computer map. The combat shotgun, rocket launcher and heals were, naturally, on the OTHER side. I made it to them fast enough but was aiming for 100% and missed an enemy on the way. This culminated in the most needlessly dramatic countdown I've played so far:

11+ ... Hopelessly searched for the last enemy while tired and nowhere near the stairs.
10 ... Found the last enemy!
9 ... Fired at the former.
8 ... Reloaded my shotgun.
7 ... Fired again and cleared the level.
6 ... Swapped to my rocket launcher. Blew a hole through the maze.
5 ... Slowly started reloading.
4 ... Finished reloading a fresh rocket.
3 ... Fired at my feet and jumped across the maze.
2 ... Landed just a few tiles from the stairs and dived for them.
1 ... Fell onto the stairs and
*nuked*

Inspired by Mrazerty's trash medals, I think this needs a topic of its own. These hypothetical 'awards' wouldn't be counted or displayed in your player info, but would result in some kind of silly/snarky one-liner being added to your mortem. Some marks would be excluded from certain challenge modes. (Sloth from Ao100, Waste from AoB etc.)

Code: [Select]
Mark of Cowardice     - Quit the game on Phobos Surface
Mark of Soreness      - Quit with 1 HP.
Mark of Temptation    - Died from flooding the level with acid/lava.
Mark of Idiocy        - Died by pushing a barrel into acid/lava.
Mark of Clumsiness    - Died on a floor that was cleared.
Mark of Arrogance     - Died within 10 turns of entering an optional level.
Mark of Sloth         - Died after 8 hours playtime.
Mark of Regression    - Died from a former human while clvl 7 or higher.
Mark of Misfortune    - Died the same turn as using as phase device.
Mark of Waste         - Died without any ammo.
Mark of Avarice       - Died while holding 3 or more large med-packs.
Mark of Forgetfulness - Died nude and holding armor, both for over 100 turns.
Mark of Regret        - Died standing on an invulnerability globe.
Mark of Reluctance    - Died standing on the stairs.
Mark of Weakness      - Died with a BFG in hand.
Mark of Recklessness  - Died by a rocket jump.
Mark of Impulsiveness - Died by a nuke before level 25.
Mark of Ignorance     - Died by firing a Revenant's Launcher beside you.
Mark of Decay         - Died with a max HP of less than 10.

Add your own, provide one-liners, or admit to how many you've 'earned'!

Why? Players might accidentally misread important messages otherwise, and I just freaking nuked myself on L16 of a 100% AoRA run while literally standing on an invulnerability glove, is why. :|

Discussion / The Ten Commandments of Ultra-Violent
« on: March 05, 2011, 16:32 »
1. I shall not reload my weapons without waiting to ensure the coast is clear.
2. I shall not type with haste will enemies remain on the level.
3. I shall not attempt to run without first checking that I am not already running.
4. I shall not wait until I am being bombarded to use small med-packs.
5. I shall not 'save' items for decorating my grave.
6. I shall not stand near barrels. I shall not take items from beside barrels. I shall not give funny looks to barrels.
7. I shall not handle doors near the centre of the map, but open them from a safe distance. With rockets.
8. I shall not challenge the arena. I'm not going to win anyway.
9. I shall not ragequit when no combat shotgun spawns on L2. I shall calmly quit like a gentleman.
10. FUCK Mancubi.

... I am terrible at this game now. :(

Discussion / Re: Poll : Favorite Advanced Traits
« on: March 03, 2011, 17:11 »
'Most picked', 'most powerful' and 'most favourite' are indeed all very different questions.

Most picked: A little hard to answer since I varying use all of them, depending on which badge I'm aiming for. On the occasions where I'm not restricted (eg. standard run) I mostly use Triggerhappy or Dualgunner builds, otherwise Badass gets shoved in somewhere.

Most powerful: Intuition is stupid useful, although a little less so on the harder difficulties when there are invariably enemies EVERYWHERE. If you're lucky with mods then Whizkid can directly power you up more than any other trait, no question.

Most favourite: Shottyman is just fun to use, Juggler makes hoarding and tactically selecting weapons much more enjoyable. Whizkid I enjoy the least for the times you pick it but then find none of the mods you wanted.
