Re: [Suggestion] Lighting Mech - Electric Whip, two suggestions.

I've never used Chen Rong's ability to fire at an empty tile, just to get a move - save maybe on Flame Behemoths. The whole point of the ability is that you can attack and dodge incoming damage, enviroment effects etc. I mean if you want to move, why not just.. move? Why waste your attack round for ...

Re: Rust buckets

Hi, I unlocked them first too and proceeded to beat normal x2, x3 and x4 with it. I have everything unlocked now but these guys are definitely up there for me, as their style is a great combination of board control and accumulative damage. They get so much better in the later rounds, which tend to b...

Re: Oh, Robocop.. (Boarding Drone woes)

Sorry for the bad grammar, I was editing the entire thing when my cat decided to destroy my post. Breach MkII priority is the drone room in case they have defense drones out, since it's a bomb it passes by without being shot down. 3 system damage and a breach ensures it stays down for a good while. ...

Oh, Robocop.. (Boarding Drone woes)

So I'm doing an Engi B play through and came across a few items that made me aim for the following strategy - 2x boarding drones backed up with an Ion Mk2 for shields, Breach Bomb MkII to knock more holes and take out key systems and an anti-bio beam to ensure wins in hand to hand combat. I'm essent...

Re: Hardest beggining ship?

The way I look at it, most ships end up being more or less the same by sector 8 with a few changes here and there. You're all going to run a couple of weapons, drones, a few levels of cloaking or a teleporter.. the game really doesn't offer that much customization, the biggest impact of ship differe...

Re: Stealth Ship B... timing is everything!!!

lol ^^

My worst one so far was a sector 2 Zoltan encounter - boarded by 4(!) at the start of the fight, he also had a beam drone and of course the lovely shields. I went 100% hull to 0% before my FTL reached 50% charge. :x

Kinda unrelated but you made me realize I don't know a single person who hasn't seen Alien :D

Re: Stealth Ship B... timing is everything!!!

Like all ships what you buy/upgrade early on makes all the difference.. some are more forgiving than others. The breakthrough for me with the stealth ships was forgoing the shield for a small bomb or 1 point missile launcher. That 150 entry fee on the shield puts you way behind in terms of firepower...

Re: Engi Variant B

Getting a good Engi B start means making the most out of that Heavy Ion & Laser combo. Sounds kinda simple but what I kept doing wrong was thinking in terms of faster recharge 1 point ions - i.e. Engi type A. Since it does 2 ion damage instead of one, it keeps things locked down longer - so you ...
