Re: Nimbo's FTL Stories

Today I finally scored my first Advanced Edition win. I never thought you guys could find a way to make the Flagship even tougher, but you sure did. My first attempt met with failure as I had no counter to Round 1's hacking drones, which sucked out my oxygen and spaced my whole crew. With that in mi...

Re: Nimbo's FTL Stories

This isn't exactly a story, but I felt the need to brag.

Immediately after unlocking the Stealth ship, I gave it a try... and won the game on my very first try.

Fuck yeah.

He couldn't have done much if I'd had shields. But because I didn't yet, I got sliced and diced.
FTL is such a troll sometimes.

Re: What were your most unusual/ridiculous fights ever?

I wrote a story about this in my story thread, but it bears repeating. I was having a really good run in the Osprey A. I got good weapons and a full crew early on, which left me with plenty of scrap to upgrade the bejesus out of the ship. I only lost 3 crewmen - one in Sector 4 or so, who was quickl...

Re: Nimbo's FTL Stories

It had all gone so well. Improbably well, even. The Engi, known to its crewmates as V, was the only non-organic aboard the ship. All throughout their travels, its crewmates had been crowing about their incredible luck. Engi did not believe in such things ... but after what they'd been through, V alm...

Re: What do you wish was in FTL?

Since FTL is a roguelike (sorta) why not take a page from other roguelikes: Once in a while, you might come across the wreck of a familiar ship - your "corpse" from a previous, failed attempt - and although there's not much left, you might be able to scavenge a weapon or some scrap or some...

Ships you have bad luck with

Everyone has a different experience with FTL. Perhaps, like me, you think that certain ships are "cursed" because, when using them, you get bad encounters, take a lot of damage, and/or don't collect enough weapons or scrap to outfit them well. The prime example of this for me is the Fed Cr...
