Re: How many attempts? Any successes?

Beat it on normal on the first try with Crystal A. Mind you I have played through a LOT on easy and a lot of those failed. Problem with the stats for me is that quite a few of my play thrus have been in the quest to get unlocks and as such I'd quit if I realised I would not reach a particular goal I...

Spambots

I hate them.
Is there anything that can be done? they're just messing up the forums all the time at the moment.

Re: How many easy games have you lost before beating the bos

The boss beat me a LOT on easy. Once I understood how all the different systems/weapons interact I turned it around and started winning fairly consistently. After 10+ easy victories I achieved my first normal victory the other night. I cheered, made pew pew noises and gave it the finger for good mea...

Re: Secret ship

Crew Study Event can also trigger in Engi systems I'm told. I've unlocked the ship and it's variant. Took quite a few tries to get it. To get the pod, it's at a distress beacon, the study is at an empty star (no ship, no distress, no anomalies), i THINK the beacon is at an empty star in a Rock Syste...

Re: Too Random.

The system type you are in impacts what the stores stock. Engi Systems: Drones and Subsystems are very common Rock Systems: Missiles are very common Mantis: I don't know. haven't been paying enough attention Slug: I don't know. haven't been paying enough attention Zoltan: I don't know. haven't been ...

Re: Boarding Drones Getting Stuck on Flagship (possible spoi

This is a pretty legit issue I think. Boarding drones probably need a non-damaging Self Destruct option somewhere.
The flagship is not the only vessel with unconnected rooms either.

Re: Whining

I find sector 7 Rebel drone ships a little OP sometimes. So I tend to avoid Engi sectors at 7. I had a run where i just jumped away from 2 of these (on normal) and went on to beat the boss. It's not that I could not have beaten them, I just weighed up the cost and benefit and found it would not be w...

Re: [Suggestion] Volley Fire

I almost agree with the OP.
The problem is the ION weapons you always want to fire first so that they hit the shields.
The other one is beam and ION/Laser weapons. You actually want the beam to fire just AFTER the laser usually as you want the laser to take the last bar of shields.

Re: Breach Missiles are bullshit

If you hate breaches you need to unlock the Slug ship. it has a self sealing hull. If you're facing off against a boarding drone, usually the hull can self seal before the drone has taken a bar off the system then you can send in the red shirts to deal with it. It's fantastic. Altho I went defense d...

Re: Who has actually beaten this on normal?

Beat it with Slug A on normal the other night.
Clocked in 54 hours of playing FTL now, finished it many times on easy and have all A ships unlocked and just 3 Bs left to go. Been playing easy to learn/unlock ships. Can beat boss reasonably often on easy.
