Re: What is your favourite ship - and why?

Current favorite is the b type stealth cruiser...

Re: How many attempts? Any successes?

3 victories in 130 attempts, all on normal :) first win was 90 attempts in. I tell myself that it took me so long because I like trying out new strategies and playing risky but I might just suck ;) never played on easy and I thing I wouldn't enjoy it now that I am used to hard, as the game said in t...

Re: Who has actually beaten this on normal?

Well after 78 plays on normal (haven't tried easy) I have 1 victory to my name and actually reached the boss 5-6 times. Mainly due to trying out different ships and strategies but this game is hard. Hard not so much in the mechanics but you have to constantly evolve and change your strategy and play...

Three weapons and 2 layers of shields needs 7 energy to run minimun, doable if he had 14. Ion storms do halve enemy power as well and if he was a drone he had no O2 to worry about and very few systems as they only have 5-7 rooms on average and some of thm are indeed empty.
