Re: Is it worth buying a Teleporter?

Honestly, the biggest drawback of the teleporter is that it slows down the game. A skillful use of Telepad, i.e. using it in concert with everything else, made thing a whole lot easier + faster. ;) I just love shooting the crap out of the enemy crews with any gun available to me— including the Glai...

Re: Is "Instant Death" a Common Part of the Game?

I do have a fair share of instant death in the past, including a dead in a single battle in a nigh-invincible ship and full hull. But every time when this happen, there's always a way out of it; I just didn't thought of it at the time and only see it in retrospect. From the way you told it, it sound...

Re: Is "Instant Death" a Common Part of the Game?

Unless you're on the DA-SR 12, 'Instant Death' situation is actually very rare.

'Mistakes', though, is an extremely common occurrence and is an integral part of the game— this is by design! :twisted:

Re: Can my ship beat the flagship?

You can win, but it require some luck, a lot of pause, and a bit of skill. ;)

Re: Did you know? List little tips and tricks here!

First round has a L2 (?) Medbay and a Cloak and 7 (?) crew in the body, so I'd say no 3 Medbay / 2 Cloak / 7 men It was hard enough to do ( link to post ) with 4 fully leveled Mantises (2 KIA when boss cloaked), a L3 TP, Small Bomb (about a dozen ammo), Basic Laser & Pike Beam. If I hadn't mana...

Re: Did you know? List little tips and tricks here!

I wonder if it possible to kill all the crew on the flagship without any weapon+drone using only standard 2 slot Telepad and no Cheaptal crewmen. :?:

Re: What is your favourite ship - and why?

Well the Slug is the last ship i unlocked... Same here. ;) Slug Cruiser, IMO, is (at first glance) the least interesting of all the "difficult ship to unlock in a normal playthrough" ships. And so, there seem to be 2 kind of people who still haven't unlock all the ships and it will be the...

Re: Scanners and Ship Unlocks...

Slug_A :— Fire in Medbay/O2 is not really a problem since you start with lv.2 door, you can either turn off O2 and just wait for it to die out or sent someone to go deal with it (you rarely have to do this, but if you need to, it's very safe since both room are next to each other) or just vent the ...

Re: Scanners and Ship Unlocks...

Mantis B has a Boarding Drone and a Defense Drone. Sun flares really are pretty much the only thing in the early sectors that could cause serious damage. If only you could ... As I stated earlier, it's not exactly a common occurrence for this event to occur. And not only that, the fault I mentioned...
