Re: Confessions of a pirate...

I think the most bizare situation is where people find themselves pirating a game they own so they can acually play it. Thats something that should /never/ occur. i think distributed cds were either a bizarre plot to make me buy multiple copies of the same media or a flawed technology that cost ton...

Re: Funniest FTL Moment?

i remember having a really intense fight in an asteroid field. my hull's almost gone, so's his. pausing constantly, praying for every shot not to miss. we both get down to 1hp and he finally surrenders. thank god! i close the loot window. then we simultaneously take asteroids to the face and explod...

Re: Is there ever really a reason not to board?

It's a good overarching strategy for any ship without a combat disadvantage. That's 11/18th of the ships. Meaning, that's not a high enough percentage to consider it a master strategy, IMO. It's a strategy that works for more than half of the ships, but not that much more. etc... great post. i agre...

Re: Rock Cruiser

i have not unlocked the crystal ship yet, so i have played the last 70 or so games with the rock ship, the first 40 with A and 30 with B because i finally got a crystal guy to help me with killing a guy on fire. i have to keep the rock plating because it may help me get the stasis pod, but besides t...

Re: Never get complacent.

i love when my two rocks die on the enemy ship just before i kill the last crew member because the fire i set finally knocked the door room to red. my hand hits the escape key, and just before i quit i think, "i still have a good ship and solid crew... so what i lost the last two original <name...

Re: Hardest beggining ship?

:D stealth b is the first one i beat the game with. i have never played on easy tho. different strokes for different folks. strangely enough, i received a pre-igniter in the second sector, then died in the fourth. The next game i went all the way with a strong ship and no unlucky drones. i gotta thr...

Re: 404: The Killer Quest

meh, it is hard to see where they are going to be in 6 jumps, or even 3. i was positively annoyed until i found i could turn on star paths, any captain worth his salt should be able to do that. being said, i still sometimes get stuck on a long path to no where even being able to look ahead. i tend t...

Re: 1 bar left...

my luck did turn,(got crystal ship!) but after killing the flagship the first time (didn't realise it had to die more than once, i had lost EVERYTHING; my hull was on one bar, i had fires all over and i jumped to the next sector only to be greeted by a rebel cruiser and killed. that was exactly wha...

Re: The best random encounter ever.

my absolute favorite is the nice group of homesteaders that give you a pre-igniter just for being a good chap and killing a scrummy 6hp drone that had a ion blast and a crappy missile.
