I found Ortnatus easy, just 4 games of StarJeweled.

Easiest way is to buy an Ultralisk (500 energy) and then just keep it alive by healing it everytime it reaches half health.

All of them were easy - for the left 2 die one you just mass PT's with upgrades + repair.

Don't know where the easy part comes in, but I actually managed the 15 waves achievement in Night 2 Die mode... without partner! Solo!

Can still see the Mighty Hero-SCV, last of its kind.
Unfortunately, I couldn't get him out of there... clearly deserves the Ubermedal of Wootness :D

Yes, it's within seconds, quite literally.
But that's enough :cool:

I meant it was easy to get the Stank portrait. :p (Which I also did solo)

I can't even get close to beating an insane in starjeweled.. is there any trick to getting more points besides just going for as many 3-in-a-row's as you can? (and getting luck on the rest?)

Luck is a key factor. Just play 3-4 hours straight. You are bound to hit an uberhigh lucky streak sooner or later (that is the plus on the chance games, FUUUU blizz for maiking melee so unchancy :D)

Indeed. Easiest ever.
A couple Marauders is all it takes to hit & run him to death.

Or, optionally, wait an extra night or two, get 2 PFs in your choke and 20+ tanks on high-ground.

Or, if all else fails, get a really good partner and let him do it :p (both get the achievement. As, well, obviously, if he doesn't have any kills, he didn't kill anything of yours either)


Luck is a key factor.

Clearly.
Presumably, you don't even start all with the same initial board...

Fast spamming 3s and the occasional reset seem to do it.

A "better" option of course, is just to play more.
If you happen to know someone who played Bejeweled for ages... you're in for some "There. No, THERE! Damnit, man, don't you see that 5-combo???"
Frankly, no, I don't see that 5-combo.
I don't even see that 2-combo.
And I don't exactly plan either to play enough to start seeing them.

Well, for me that's really just a demo map that shows what can be done.



For now I need a Left 2 Die "brutal" partner.
Or, perhaps, I'll start solo-ing that one too. It's bound to work sooner or later :p

I tend to simply go with the difficulty that my "partner" goes for.
Every now and then, you get someone that goes "casual", and for obvious reasons once you see him play.
Just as every now and then you get someone for "brutal" for no reason whatsoever.


- Dying first night
- Who needs a second bunker?
- 200 Zerg Biostuff in the "bank"
- Tanks as direct and only counter to Spotters
- 10+ SCVs near the Science Facility
- No SCVs for repair nearby
- No defense in the mineral line
- One SCV to repair 5+ bunkers
- 2000+ minerals in the bank
- 12 SCVs total, 5 minutes into the game
- Never heard of resource sharing (yes, Zergstuff is a resource too!)
- "What's this map about?" (yes, on "brutal" of course. Where else?)
- ...

Plenty "interesting" really :p
Play more and you'll see them all. And then some.

I got to a bit over 45 minutes with YourFace on N2D.

We went Medics, Goliaths, Siege Tanks, Neosteel. After that we just got whatever the hell we felt like.

We went 3 bunkers for the east and west entrances. One PF for north and south entrances. I put my Siege Breakers on the highground (one on each) and my Hell's Angels on the north highground.

I just massed MMM after that. I put 2-3 SCV's per PF and 3 SCV's on my 3 bunkers.

YourFace got the south side and I got the north side.

Stank was pretty easy to get.

I'm seeing all these people getting the N2D achievements so easily, whereas it took me and YourFace like 6 hours to get ours.

I saw someone with like 102 minutes of survival. Crazy!

Ehm... and that's it? 3 bunkers and a PF?
I'm surprised you made it past... well, past whatever really, say wave 5+.

Twice the supply and double the mercenaries (as compared to solo) clearly helps, but not that much, now, does it?


And, no, 6 hours is nothing really.
I easily doubled that :p

And an insane amount of games I gave up in less than 5 minutes.

Yeah, we did it with only 3 bunkers and a PF. I could probably upload the replay sometime, but I'm in class right now.

I was surprised too. Once we got Goliaths and Tanks, the going to so easy.

TBH, it only got hard in the end because of the sheer numbers of units.

That's a good point to make. We did scatter the tanks. We had a couple tanks along the ledge on each plateau and a couple along the back ledge. I also made sure to try and focus fire chokers if they got a hold on any units. I kept a few SCV's and Goliaths on each plateau to kill any Spotters.

A good strategy is once you're mined out and have no more use for excess SCV's, send them out to die.

I also note that when possible, MAX your food THEN buy mercenaries. This allows you to go slightly over the 200 food count and every bit helps.

Yea, tanks only fire the required number of shots at each enemy.
So you just didn't have enough tanks :3

I didn't know Goliaths were useful. I remembered how stupidly useless they were in the Campaign mission where you get them so I haven't made a single one of them.

    Crazy how much 3d printing has come in the last few years. Sad that it's not as easily modifiable though
  • Varine Varine:
    I bought an Ender 3 during the pandemic and tinkered with it all the time. Just bought a Sovol, not as easy. I'm trying to make it use a different nozzle because I have a fuck ton of Volcanos, and they use what is basically a modified volcano that is just a smidge longer, and almost every part on this thing needs to be redone to make it work
  • Varine Varine:
    Luckily I have a 3d printer for that, I guess. But it's ridiculous. The regular volcanos are 21mm, these Sovol versions are about 23.5mm
  • Varine Varine:
    So, 2.5mm longer. But the thing that measures the bed is about 1.5mm above the nozzle, so if I swap it with a volcano then I'm 1mm behind it. So cool, new bracket to swap that, but THEN the fan shroud to direct air at the part is ALSO going to be .5mm to low, and so I need to redo that, but by doing that it is a little bit off where it should be blowing and it's throwing it at the heating block instead of the part, and fuck man
  • Varine Varine:
    I didn't realize they designed this entire thing to NOT be modded. I would have just got a fucking Bambu if I knew that, the whole point was I could fuck with this. And no one else makes shit for Sovol so I have to go through them, and they have... interesting pricing models. So I have a new extruder altogether that I'm taking apart and going to just design a whole new one to use my nozzles. Dumb design.
  • Varine Varine:
    Can't just buy a new heatblock, you need to get a whole hotend - so block, heater cartridge, thermistor, heatbreak, and nozzle. And they put this fucking paste in there so I can't take the thermistor or cartridge out with any ease, that's 30 dollars. Or you can get the whole extrudor with the direct driver AND that heatblock for like 50, but you still can't get any of it to come apart
  • Varine Varine:
    Partsbuilt has individual parts I found but they're expensive. I think I can get bits swapped around and make this work with generic shit though
