Re: Are you using the crew positioning buttons?

Another good, albeit uncommon use is if you have a main guy on a station, and also a 'trainee', who you want to eventually replace him with. So you have the trainee preset spot as 'observer', and the veteran as manning the station. But you start battles with the trainee manning. If you encounter a t...

Re: Your "Fuck you, FTL" Moments

Zoltan A, hard difficulty. Have 400 scrap saved up last 3 sectors, but no cloak among 5 shops. Goal is to just kill flagship very quickly, easily done with Flak 1, halberd, pike, leto, and level 3 hack and level 3 mind control. Enemy flagship hacks my weapons(launches hacking drone after I start my ...

Re: Flak is kind of overpowered you guys

Slightly off topic, but talking about overpowered guns, Vulcan is at the top. 4 power for killing weapon that only needs to be given a minute to "warm up"? But it's balanced because it's hard to come by it. So as was said by Twinge, rarity of the weapon is quite a good way to balance it o...

Re: Your favorite feeling?

Having a crewmember level up repair or combat, despite not making sure they snatch up all those skill points. (usually requires the same small crew throughout the game)

Re: They've now made the game too hard

Are you powering them fully? With 4 engine I take 3 damage (1 hit) from the ASB, max.

Re: They've now made the game too hard

Yup 4 engines and you should typically breeze through the fleet, taking maybe one hit. But getting caught in the 1st sector can be pretty precarious. Get 4 engines and upgraded stealth, and you should have guaranteed no hit by ASB if your goal is to just escape. I'll consider upgrading to lvl 5 engi...

Re: Flak is kind of overpowered you guys

There are a number of weapon offenders other than Flak Cannon. I'd rate Flak II below all these. Flak I however fits right in with this group. Burst Laser II Dual Lasers (although can only start with it) Small Bomb Ion Bomb Halberd Beam, or Pike Beam as long as you have enough support. I'd basically...

Re: It's Possible! All Ships Beaten on Normal!

Many people are well past that point and working to beat all ships on hard ;) Congrats though, some of the ships are a real hassle even on normal difficulty.

Re: I only just noticed this

Well it's valid if "Rebel" is the name of the faction. It does sound weird, though. Language changes over time so maybe it's weird space grammar :p I'd put my vote for "Rebel Flagship".

Re: What crew/equipment/weapon gives the most blue options?

I think lots of different things give about an equal amount of blue options.

I do know as far as blue options for the cost, level 2 piloting is way up there. Especially if you visit lots of nebula nodes.
