How many teammates survived after the Nelis/Dean battle?
« on: April 03, 2010, 05:04:22 PM »

When I finished Telepath RPG Chapter 2, I only had few living teammates after the Nelis battle, and I could never survive the Dean battle, so all you TRPG2 players, did your party make it out of the battle alive, or did some/all of them not live to tell the tale?

All can't be an option because you technically haven't beat the game. For those of us that went against humanity "NA" would be the appropriate choice.

It's been added, anything else that I should add? (Not meant as an insult, rather, as a simple question)

The first time I beat Nelis just 2 or 3 team mates survived. And the first time I beat the Academy, just the Main survided!
However, I started a new game (not a New Game +) on brutal and (after some grinding and strategic knowledge) I was able to beat both battles with all team mates alive.

i never lost teammates, whenever I did i would just reset the game and run through the battle again
and after beating the game the first time, i just did a new game+ which makes loosing a thing of the past

Oh. I forgot to say that I also played solo for the entire game on brutal and I was able to beat both missions (after some serious grinding). The hardest part was beating solo the first battles before being able to train. There was someone in the old forums that claimed that he was able to beat the entire game without grinding (i.e., no random battles, no security station battles and no gambling). I never managed to do it, but I might try again some day...

Wow, I would like to congradulate you, I never made it through the Dean battle, and only myself, Darkling, and Shadowboxer survived the Nelis battle. (And that was only on easy!)

The people who answer "All" spent too much time gold farming.  The great fault of TRPG2 is that the game requires people to waist a ton of time gold farming to fight the Shadowling Queen.

At 1st playthru:

Academy-battles all survived on hard but not on brutal.

Somnius-battles all survived on brutal.

At 2nd playthru:

All survived at Academy-battles on brutal.

Somnius-battles I have only battled via chest so far (haven't had time to finish TRPG 2 second time yet).

I don't think so; I may have fought on normal, but I never bothered farming and managed to do it at lvl 15 without spending money on anyone except the main, Festus, and Grotius more than 4 times.

I have perhaps had one of the most epic endings.  I went against Tastidian, and all of my teammates survived up to the last battle.  Nelis slaughtered all of my teammates, and I was left with my Hero who had 2 HP and no PsP left.  Thankfully, I had the green orb, and kept running around to gain PsP.  Eventually, when I had 5 PsP, I confronted Nelis with a powerful Vengeance, and killed her.

Nice one, frodo2040.
Of the big ones I remember fighting Nelis with the GUI minimized and one or two teammates dead. Won in the end, but it was hard as I didn't remember who had how much health and how much PsP!
Still, first time around when I tried the academy, I lost quickly, and on the first win I think I had one or two teammates left. With Nelis it was easier on the first try, losing only two, i think (but that was a long time ago during TRPG2 beta testing stage!). After that, I never lost a teammate on the Nelis battle on any of the difficulties thanks to exploting her attacking preferences (ie with yellow orb and vengeance, go after Nelis with the Main, whilst keeping everyone else at a safer distance and ensuring that she only uses Fire Gate).
