Regular DoomRL is too easy and it's time to conquer Berserk! eh?  =D

That said, nice win!  I think you killed more in one turn in this game than that other one with 1900+ kills.

I'm a bit late to this thread, but I just discovered it.  My highest kill count has got you all beat.  1995!  :D

This is my first time getting to night 13!  :D  I thought for sure it would be number one, but this game still holds my top score.  Comparing them, it looks like in the previous game, a lot more Wraiths spawned, and as a result, almost twice as many Skeletons were raised.  So there were a lot more kills and a lot more time spent on the other game, hence the higher score, even though I didn't get as far.

Oh well...  at least I seem to have a strategy that seems to work pretty well in this game.  :)

Pro-tip:  Set "EmptyConfirm" to "true" in the config.lua file.  It makes the game prompt you if you forget to reload and try to fire an empty weapon.  That feature has saved my life on many occasions.

Just wanted to share that I got SlashER Diamond again, this time with an Army of the Dead build.  :)  (Basically, I wanted to complete the Skulltag Arena without exploiting the bug that generates tons of extra equipment in N!)  :P

The Haste rune was helpful in mitigating the lack of speed of this build, but my biggest problem turned out to be ammo, which is a bit surprising, considering that this is the most ammo efficient shotgun build in DRL.  I spent a good chunk of the late game with less than two stacks of shells, since no Intuition trait meant that I had to do a lot more radar-shooting than normal.  (And I occasionally blew up important stuff when hitting unseen barrels)  Fortunately, eventually, I had a lucky spawn of an Arch-Vile near a Sergeant and I was able to re-kill him a bunch of times to get a hefty collection of shells and that carried me to the end.

I deliberately held off on fighting üJC until I was able to assemble a Piercing Chainsaw.  It seemed a fitting companion to my armour-piercing shotguns.  :D

Hey, welcome to the forums!  :D

Nuking Dis twice by mistake?  :o  I've made some careless errors in my time, but that's a new one on me!  (Sorry to rub it in)  :P

It looks like Unholy Cathedral was the one special level you didn't complete, but you nuked it on your way out?  That's one way to show contempt for the Angel of Death!  :D

I was so close to Elite Platinum, but due to several mistakes on my part, I screwed myself out of even a Veteran Gold.

After Cybie, I spawned right into an arachnotron cave, which left me with only a single large health pack and no armor whatsoever. I should have known better and just skipped UC, but went in anyways and got whooped by the very first demon. At least I left a nuke on the way out.

Everything else was pretty smooth sailing, though I really don't know what I was thinking making a cerberus armor instead of boots, since I didn't have any envirosuits on hand at the time. Luckily enough, one spawned within 5 tiles to the entrace to the Pits.

After nuking the mastermind, I got so excited for my easy FW that I forgot to actually go down into the Hell Fortress before overloading my nuclear BFG. Shame too, since this was easily my best run yet: first time getting Shambler's Head!

Really, there should be docs about this mechanics somewhere.

Quote from: DoomRL Wiki
Every 10.0s on a level, there is a chance for corpses to respawn. There are two checks for a corpse to respawn: a global check that must be passed if any corpses are to respawn, and then another spawn for each corpse. For the global check, the chance of passing starts at 20% when entering the level and grows by 1% for each subsequent check. The chance of passing the per-corpse checks starts at 10% and increases by 1% for every 100.0s spent on the level.

Not a big deal P-modding a blue, saving 1 damage from 15 otherwise hitting you, anyway 4-hit kill. Maybe this would be enough to kill one shambler should he drop at the edge of your vision with MCe, but wrecking 205HP takes 5 volleys (TH1 SoB2, 4 if consecutive and full hits - I've seen bullets miss on AoMC vs a demon that was 2 squares away, so expect 4-hit to never proc), quite a lot of time to have a threesome, and then it would be them to take the active stance. About health - not too easy, a full medpack vs two bolts (from 2 shamblers) is not enough to spare a turn, even as a scout. A technician would have a better survival rate since they eat medpacks quite fast, but a technician doesn't have MCe... and on AoMC the thing that rules is DPS rather than being able to quickly heal. But, next time I'll try to pop a shambler, if I'd be already with Cateye.

Regarding N! respawn, I have once met info that respawn ticks are area wide, and they happen at equal intervals, then each existing corpse (seems that not archviles, thankfully) rolls dice if it stands up separately. Maybe these dice get altered from time spent on the level. Really, there should be docs about this mechanics somewhere.
