-- General ---------------------------------------------------

 Before him 39 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 36 of those were killed.
 1 of those was killed by something unknown.
 And 1 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 Some rumours though, say that the Cyberdemon was killed already!
 Is he immortal? 1 souls claim to have killed him...
 1 showed that it can outsmart hell itself.

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

This is my first successful run since the release of .9.9.1.  I was going mad the last few days trying to complete AoMr so I could finally hit sergeant rank and earn some more challenge game opportunities.

Anyway, this was my first try at a high-damage pistol build, and it worked amazingly well for me.  Throwing tech mods on my pistols when I had the chance made things loads of fun, as did getting a myriad of agility mods and throwing them on armor.  Son of a Bitch was icing on the cake, making Barons, Knights, and even Bruiser Brothers drop before me.  Once I got to Hell, though, I mostly bolted for the exit.

Other fun bits included using the Chained Court and Halls of Carnage largely for farming a little experience and megaspheres.  Sadly, the Vaults only had two rocket launchers and some shotguns.  Lame!  Regardless, smashed through everything I could.  You'll also notice I killed no Mancubi; in fact, I didn't see or even hear any!  Lucky me.  I can't stand the suckers.

I know this run isn't too amazing, but I can't stop playing.  It's one of the few games I've played constantly since high school.

Congrats on your first 0.9.9.1 win.

Bruiser Brothers really makes you think ahead on runs like AoMr, AoSg, and (especially) AoB.  I think their HP goes up with the difficulty, too, considering it took forever to kill them in UV, even with AoMC plasma.  'Course, running is as option and with MGK you'll definitely have that.

I like offensive pistol builds myself, although I tend to favor speed before damage, if only because you have more bullets to use earlier on.  In Hell it becomes a conservation problem, which is when the damage really matters (not to mention basically every enemy having armor).  Also, earlier Finesse = earlier Whizkid, which means plenty of modding.  Nice to see someone else picks SoaG #3 over DG too.

I find that having one very accurate and fast pistol a level before having two slightly slowly, inaccurate, weaker guns is definitely worth it.  After that, straight damage ended up working.  I later did an Angel of Haste run based on insanely fast pistols and made it to the Cyberdemon and managed a sacrificial nuke.  Sadly, I forgot to post the mortem for that one.  Two successful runs in one day!  I almost pulled off a successful ITYTD knife-only run, but the last few levels really got me.
