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

 1157 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 1058 of those were killed.
 2 of those were killed by something unknown.
 19 didn't read the thermonuclear bomb manual.
 And 64 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 14 souls destroyed the Mastermind...
 10 killed the bitch and survived.
 4 showed that it can outsmart Hell itself.

Rather than chasing the badges with incredibly luck-based openings (which seems to be most of the Platinum/Diamond/Angelic ones), I've been trying to find ones that are easier to get started.  Destroyer Platinum seemed like a good bet, and it did indeed prove an interesting challenge.  Angel of Mass Carnage plays very differently compared to the standard game in ways that both help and hurt, though on the whole I think it's clearly beneficial once you learn the strategies.  I definitely got significantly better at it over the course of the challenge, and the amount of grinding Phobos Base Entry was an order of magnitude less compared to most of the other high badges.  I suspect having learned the damage avoidance strategies required here will make me a better player in general.

My standard Cat-Eye scout build was the obvious right choice here, since the best way to minimize damage is not to let anything shoot at you in the first place.  I completed one run before this one where I misremembered the amount of damage you could take and still get the Untouchable Badge, which is why this game didn't pick up Destroyer Silver and Gold too.  This run had very little good luck at all.  The only notable thing that went my way was finding a phase device before Phobos Anomaly that took me out of the ambush.  Hell's Armory had a useless schematic.  Envirosuit packs were very thin on the ground, so I had to save modpacks to make cerberus boots for the Lava Pits.  (The envirosuits in the inventory at my end came from the Lava Pits and the last level.)  I only saw three agility mods the whole game, so I had no tactical boots, just A-modded cerberus boots.  P-modding a hyperblaster in AoMC is a bad idea because of the knockback, I discovered.  The one mistake I really regret though was getting nervous on Babel because I almost had Gatekeeper Diamond too, if only I hadn't been a little greedy against the Cyberdemon.  Now I have try to do that again.
