Re: Losing the game should happen faster

Actually - it seems I've put that point in the wrong place. What I meant was that this: * Ideally, you should be killed as soon as possible after the game becomes unwinnable. is untrue in the sense of that unless you actually loose the fight and your ship and/or crew is obliterated there is always a...

Re: Losing the game should happen faster

* When you get knocked too far down, the game becomes unwinnable -- you will be unable to achieve enough power to beat the boss. True - ran into such situations more than once. But that's one of the things I love about the game. It does not "make sure" the player has everything and then s...

Re: Your "Fuck you, FTL" Moments

I managed to unlock Torus thingy on my fifth go with Kestrel and got blown up a moment later. Okay. Time to try the new ship, then! I carefully picked the names for my Torus and its crew (took me about 5 minutes xD). Started the run. First jump - solar flare system with an automated scout. With a ro...

Re: plz let us sell our missiles, drone parts, fuel

I agree that having the option of selling "consumables" on stations would be making us have too much... err... scrap. I have an immense amount of fun fretting over the economical choices I have to make. Eg. Should I upgrade that weapon/shield/engine or buy that shiny teleporter pad...? Or ...
