Frustration post - ahhhhhhrgggggg

Post by IIFraII » Thu Dec 12, 2013 8:42 am

So, here I am, 90-ish hours of gameplay in, still waiting for THE run.
A run in which, despite the lack of really good recipes in my book, all the stars align perfectly for my Ranger (the class i played as the most).
Good drops, balanced ones, plenty of ammo, food to spare, the eleclified Sar, which icon i luv so much :love: , stuff like that.

Then THIS run came:

2, two. lightn. sar's (one of which i waste trying to build an adam sword,for which i dont have the recipe)
auto pistol, auto shotgun, laser weapons, mag rifle 250 ammo for everything, a ton of utility stuff, everything repped up...etc etc...amazing. 8)

Then i had a Ceramic armor and stuff to make a chitin plate(with recipe :P )

Stupidity knocked on my door, i answered.

Stupidity: Hello!
Me: hey there!! :googly: :googly: :googly:
Stupidity: I heared you hate the retarded -10 Might on that ceramic plate, and you cant wait till you can wear that chitin plate, is that accurate?
Me: Oh, well, actually that is correct. You must be a long lost friend from my childhood, you know me sooooo well :love: .
Stupidity: 8) 8) 8) Hmmmmm, a proposition for you then:
Why not letting the ceramic plate get destroyed, without using any of the repairing stuff you found plenty of, and THEN just build the chitin armor?!?
Me: Sure, why not! Sounds like a great plan. What can possibly go wrong?
Stupidity: Nice lets do it! 8)

Ceramic plate unneededly destroyed - Check
Fail at building chitin armor (89% success chance) - Check
NO ARMOR as a result - check check check
Screwing over the only char who could have had a chance at making it really deep in Normal difficulty - Check

:( :( :( :(

You can't even rely on a 99% chance, much less 89%. You're basically asking to be trolled. Sorry for your loss, though. The runs that are too good to be true usually end up that way for me as well, for the same careless reasons. It's the runs where I just REFUSE to make any mistakes that I end up winning.

Ugh, speaking of YASD's, my very first start-room assisted run (it was with an Engi on Normal from lvl 5, and I was doing really well (got to level 20 or so, for the first time on Normal difficulty)) just ended with me dying to the long-range fire of a stationary enemy (laser rifles of a cyborg hiver princess) just before I got out of range/line of fire...while I had a level-up heal pending/un-used. I noticed that 5 seconds after the "You are dead" notice popped up, and to my surprise I was filled not with rage but with a strange/crushing depression/weariness as I said "Well, yet another stupid death..."

ok update.

Made a couple levels naked.
Found a shitty armor to cover my nudity with for a bit.
Then, a vision: a 4-d copier with 3 charges and a chitin in my pocket 8)

I make it to lev 30, ammo is running really low (every room with ammo is packed with robots that will take me more ammo to kill then i'd recoup)
or unguarded ammo lockers are adaptoid, every single freaking one of them :(

The wasted electrified blade mistake is catching up with me finally, as the one i still got is almost dead.

This char is not gonna last much longer :cry:
