Can we talk about Shield drones?

I've been trying to give these guys a chance lately, and I simply can't find a scenario where they earn their keep. I even tried them in the best scenario I could imagine - 2 shield drones and a cloak. Still....meh. * Defense 2 Drones can fire with as short as a 1.5 second delay, taking down lasers,...

Re: Your "LOL, FTL" moments

Let's all take a moment to remember that classic LOL moment:


"Ah, so that's what you're after. Too bad, you followed the wrong ship. The envoy that passed through here was a fake, to trick fools like you. Now let us go!"

Very smart choice of words, rebel-ship-on-the-brink-of-destruction.

Re: Are you using the crew positioning buttons?

I use them all the time! Things get chaotic in battle, and it's not easy to remember which zoltan was crewing the engines and which were chillin' in shields. Also, if I have a boarding team, I'll generally have them hang out in doors/sensors between jumps, and this is an easy way to send them back a...

Not even when powered? If not, sounds like a bug, unless the devs are really *that* determined to make you use the medical airlock.

Re: 'Stealth' Cruiser Type C

Start is tough, but this should be expected considering the value down the road: premium weapon, premium drone, additional drone slot, long-range scanners tend to be good for income. Of course, a tough start is significant if you normally have things well in hand and expect to win most games... Unf...

Re: Rain of missiles?

Well, now that the Explosive Replicator is a thing, I'd like to think that an all-missile ship is...at least *possible*, if not ideal. I haven't tried it yet but will next time I get the chance.

Re: Crew left on a ship that jumps away doesnt get cloned

I think the biggest issue with the clone bay is.. it's just inconsistent and illogical. They should have come up with some other name, like "emergency teleporter" or something. So, if your man dies, you get a new one. But only if they die horribly (like against giant spiders). If they die...

Re: Rain of missiles?

If you have two missile weapons you can destroy almost any ship with a defense drone. Rock A is your best bet. Just play normally, except don't sell your missile weapons, so you've got them when the opportunity comes up.

Re: Idea For Improving Advanced FTL Navigation

I think jumping 'anywhere' would be a bit much, but simply being able to jump to any 'frontier' node would be a little more reasonable, and bring this augment to a place where it's useful but not ridiculously OP. By 'frontier' node I mean a node you 'could have' jumped to in the past. This way you c...

Re: Rate the shop Augmentations

Oops, my mistake. I was confusing the multiplier of the FTL recharge booster with the FTL Jammer. The couple times I've used it, the booster seemed 'better' than a single engine upgrade. My guess is it effectively takes your current total multiplier and multiplies that by 1.25 so yeah, that checks i...
