Re: Ship Tier List [SPOILERS]

Well, after beating the game with all 16 ships that aren't Crystal, and still never unlocking the Crystal ships, here's my tier list: Elite Tier: These ships are ones I've felt to be powerful, and while they may have a few weaknesses and situations they're not cut out to handle, they're incredible o...

Re: What were your most unusual/ridiculous fights ever?

My most ridiculous fights have got to be against Rebel Riggers. Once I was fighting a Rebel Rigger focused entirely on internal drones using the Rock B (Shivan). Normally that would seem bad for a Rock B, because the Systems Repair Drone would put out my fires while the Anti-Personnel Drones could f...

Re: [possible spoilers] Unlocking Rock B

Rock A is alright if you get a teleporter I suppose, with missiles to take out the medbay and hopefully start fires but in a less reliable, more interceptable way than the Rock B's firebomb launcher. Rock B is a fantastic ship and there has never been a single game where I haven't grabbed a teleport...

Re: The Vortex[tips]

I disagree. The Vortex is leagues better than the piece of trash that is the DA-SR12. With the Vortex I feel like I'm getting stronger over time - collecting more crew, selling the crappy drones and getting better stuff, actually making use of those drones in my depressurized ship until that happens...

Re: My personal strategy

Attack drones are terrific against enemies whose shields have been removed. They're not nukers; they can't punch through shielding very well - a Mk II anti-ship might sometimes punch through a 1-bubble shield but that's it. But their damage-per-second (DPS) is very high, so when a target's shields a...

Re: disappointed with final boss.

I'd have to say I've never died to the boss. I've died a good deal but it's always been in earlier sectors and never while fighting the boss; usually I meet him strong, or die early. That said, the first time I played I had an experienced friend teach me the boss' weaknesses, so I was never going in...

Re: Rebel Farming

Whilst, yes, it gives huge scores I’m really not going to make a habit of it; it made the game take way too long to play through and it got boring fast, fighting so many identical battles with no variety to shake things up. I’m going to stick to “normal” runs as/when I return to FTL, unless I get a...

Rebel Farming

Hello guys, So one thing I'm curious about is the art of Rebel farming - that is, instead of running before they reach you, just fighting through the Rebel fleet after you've explored as much of a sector as you possibly can and exiting only when you need to or when the whole place is dead. I've noti...

Re: What is your favourite ship - and why?

Rock B - Shivan - Early on the Heavy Pierce Laser can defeat anything, since enemies generally don't have over 1 shield for the first two sectors. - As soon as you get a teleporter, and perhaps a little extra crew, two of your four starting Rocks can become a boarding party. Later on you could even ...
