i close the loot window. then we simultaneously take asteroids to the face and explode.

But if you accepted the surrender, they should instantly have 100% dodge chance :geek: . How could they get hit?

I've seen ships surrender and explode from fires. He might have been focusing on his ship and only thought it was an asteroid.

A mantis ship fired lasers at mine and killed its own boarders.

That moment when the enemy ship sends a boarding crew consisting of a single Engi.

Actually happened to me today.

I was playing MANtis B the other day, and I ran into a pirate ship that board me with a single human. After dispatching him, I proceeded to bring the party to their ship...






They had two mantis on board.

"...Okay, okay. That's a Mantis ship. Let's send Bob off to die, no one likes him." "Got it, got it--shh! Here he comes!"

Boarded by 2 Mantises. No biggie, I had 2 (plus a rock)... anyway, they go after my oxygen which is right next to the medbay (fed cruiser) so it'll be a piece of cake. Right as all 4 Mantises got to ~30 health, I decided to heal mine, to ensure victory. Literally less than a second later, an enemy Hermes missile hit the oxygen system, killing both of them, but not mine.
The sheer enjoyment of it all was well worth the 3 dmg.

Or the time when a ship is kicking your ass, and then suddenly they run away.

My funniest moment was the first time I ever played FTL. I was using the Kestrel and I met a Rebel Scout. Unmanned. So I try to destroy it, and the weapons were charging very slow. (I didn't know you could send crewmembers to the rooms) I only shot it once before being destroyed by the scout. :lol:

OK, what just happened:

I fought a slave trader in the first sector with Engi A. They surrendered, but my ship was pretty badly damaged after the fight, so I had to spend about a minute repairing my systems. I was wondering what was burning on my ship, there didn't seem to be a fire anywhere even though my sensors were broken.

And then, unexpectedly, the slave trader ship that had just surrendered to me exploded.
