Re: Build synergies?

I play FTL off and on, played it a ton when I got it in 2013, then got the advanced edition patch and played a bunch more. Tried to unlock all the ships sometime last fall but didn't quite do it. Well, I spent about 15 hours playing last week and finally got everything done. There's a ton of ways to...

Re: Zoltan Cruiser A

I've never had a huge issue with it on easy anyway, the halberd can kill ships on it's own in sector 1 and 2, they usually don't get through your shield before then, and I usually have plenty of scrap to find at least one laser and upgrade shields one time.

Re: How to win with mantis ship, advanced ed?

I just had my highest score game ever with mantis B layout, and it's even more high risk than the A layout. I did restart a couple times cus I ran into those AI ships. Firstly the reason I kept losing at the time of my first post was not understanding all the new advanced ed features like hacking an...

Re: Way too easy

So... how can I too achieve these crazy win rates? Looks like many of these wins have flak cannons or vulcan, how do you manage to find ideal weapon setups every game? That's where I struggle most, grabbing a cloak and still having scrap at the right time for weapons. What to skip and what not to sk...

Re: It's Possible! All Ships Beaten on Normal!

Half those games have vulcans or flak cannons, easy win weapons against the flagship. Is the new strat to max engines and jump around to every store? I don't get how people get all those ideal weapons, that's why I said it seems very RNG based.

Re: How do you unlock Federation cruiser

I don't have all the variants unlocked and don't have the crystal ships unlocked so I'm basically comparing variant A of all the other ships, but I disagree on not liking the artillery beam. Why it's way better than a glaive is it goes through shields. And it hits way more than a small beam, I've hi...

Re: How to win with mantis ship, advanced ed?

I was just referring to layout A cus I wanted to unlock the slug ship. I finally beat it on probably my 6th try. All the stuff you mentioned kept happening to me, I would run into AI ships early (seriously a 2 shielded AI ship in sector 3ish is impossible to beat!), I ran into some lanius ships one ...

Re: It's Possible! All Ships Beaten on Normal!

I don't agree with that, especially because I read somewhere the developers wanted to make a difficult game and shot for a 10% win rate initially (I'm assuming that's on normal). So I find it hard to believe anyone is getting much more than 50/50 on normal. Basically the boss is the great equalizer ...

Re: How do you unlock Federation cruiser

It's a random event, nothing special about it in the sense that it's only one part and straightforward as in I believe all decisions made complete the quest, not like the mantis one or the rock one or others where you have to do specific actions. I too felt the engi was pretty weak because of it's h...

Re: Best Weapon Combos

Just had an insane comeback win on the gilamonster (mantis ship). Things were going very well, but I never found any of my usual go to weapons- no flak cannons, no halberd beam, no burst lasers. I did find a charge ion and a chain ion. Using those to take out med bays my boarding crew won me tons of...
