Re: Help needed.

Concerning the differences in IPad & PC version: On IPad it's possible to autofire a specific weapon and target other weapons manually. I've only discovered this on the IPad (after playing countless games on the PC) and still haven't found out how to do that on the PC (not that I've exhausted al...

Re: How do you unlock Federation cruiser

I actually dislike the federation cruiser. The beam is basically a total waste. It consumes a system slot you could do something useful with. The beam itself rarely lines up to hit more than 3-4 rooms, putting it about as effective as a small beam. It rarely provides any damage at a useful point un...

Re: Unbalanced ships

Hmm, seems like Stealth C is not actually that bad. Sure, you can get into a huge mess (my first attempt ended immediately to 2xHeavy Lasers), but weapons surely beat Glaive Beam in terms of disabling the enemy first. Thanks to a shop I'm now in sector 3, Flak 1 + starting weapons + 2 shield bubbles...

Re: Unbalanced ships

My Stealth B actyally succeeded and it was a mighty scary game. I ran with glaive + 1 combat drone till the very end of sector 6 where I bought a lucky Flak 1. Took no damage during stages 1,2 but had to jump away on stage 3 with 6 boarders on my ship and mind control and wrecked door system where m...

Re: Unbalanced ships

Well then there may be something that you are missing, because level 3 cloak from the start is the only tactic about stealth B that actually works. I actually have a very nice Stealth B going on (started a couple of days ago and left it at that) where I made around 230 scrap in the first sector alon...

Re: Unbalanced ships

I don't know how you tested things, but consider this: Glaive has 25 second charge time. With manned bonus (even without skill levels) it gets to 22.5 seconds. Cloak gives you 15 seconds. 22.5-15 = 7.5 seconds. Barring charge lasers even Heavy Laser I with its 9 second charge time (even taking into ...

Your "LOL, FTL" moments

Since FUFTL thread is getting a lot of love, I think we should appease the RNG with more positive stories. Here's two that happened recently with me: 1) Was Running Zoltan Cruiser B and got boarded by 1 mantis somewhere in the middle of the ship. As I was very close on energy in all systems during t...

Re: Unbalanced ships

I don't see how you are comparing Stormwalker to Vortex and Bulwark. Stormwalker requires 1-2 (if you want to feel safe by disabling weapons) missiles for a fight against no-medbay ship and 2+ for med-bay against manned ships. Bulwark requires truckload of missiles if you start missing all the time....

Re: Has anyone won on normal or better with Rock A since AE?

The trick with Stealth B is to upgrade cloaking to level 3 with your first 50 scrap, then cloak first thing every fight, unless there are combat drones. You're guaranteed to fire first against basically every weapon in the first couple sectors. Trust me, I know. It just goes like: 1) Hmm, no-ship b...

Re: Rain of missiles?

It's actually called Rain of Missiles now (at least on my Ipad version). Not sure what's the reason for the change.
