Re: Looking for advice on flagship, boarding strat

I tend to work with Mind Control instead of Hacking. A 5th (or 3rd) boarder immediately is always nice. Although watch for Hacking modules. If you think the enemy ship is going to have one, immediately take ALL the power off the device. If they hack it, nothing will happen because there's nothing to...

Re: The Engi Conspiracy!

This is the flight recorder from the Marine Frigate Infinity: Our Integrated Smart Intelligence System (ISIS)is reporting several hostile vessels shaped like large bricks approaching our position... They're opening fire Captain! Frak! Well hold on to something, because we're going to strain the damp...

Re: Looking for advice on flagship, boarding strat

Once you've got the strategy down-pat, you'll move on to Normal. For certain ships of course. And on Hard, you'll only be using certain boarding vessels (??? B, Mantis B, Lanius B) and possibly the Red-Tail. Everything else is too gimmicky :D

Re: Charlie & The Flagship Factory - Tale of the Nesasio

I think this is my longest one yet. The Engi sector is rather interesting. Nothing conspiring going on of course. Yeah, honest. It's not like the Hive-Mind wants to hate certain groups of people just because they were programmed a certain way. ----------------- Sector 3 - Engi Controlled Sector The ...

Re: A Great Story (get your cocoa and blanket and read)

Don't expect replies on the same day you post, let alone a few hours. People read things at work, some just don't reply and others... well they respond like this. Snarkily. No really, people will just make snarky responses that contribute no useful feedback. Now for something a little bit more usefu...

Maybe Mantis are like aphids and they're born pregnant?

Re: Looking for some help

We all wish for 4 Burst Laser II's for any run. But it never does seem to happen :(

Not even in runs where I decide to be a little cheaty and disable the Rebel Pursuit.

Re: Looking for some help

Keep trying. Cloak may be expensive, but you only need 1 bar of power. If you time it right, you can activate it before a Power Surge, dodge everything and then have it recharge in time for the next one. The teleporter may also be your friend. If you take down their super shields in Phase 3, send al...

Re: Looking for some help

The best advice is to hope the RNG is in your favour and all your shots hit the super shields. Your latest run sounds like it should have been the best thing ever. I wish I could get that many Burst Lasers on my ships in every run. That or Burst Laser II's or Flak 1. Some actual advice would be well...

Re: Charlie & The Flagship Factory - Tale of the Nesasio

Spoiler alert - They will get to the Crystal Sector. It's just a given. Just like how they haven't died at the first encounter because the enemy ship got lucky with a beam to the weapons system, followed by Life Support. Has any FTL fanfic ever done that before? Either getting to the sector or even ...
