Re: New worst ship?

It's a no-brainer. The Simo-H is by far the worst ship in AE. I mean, you don't start with shields or cloaking, and all you get is a crappy supershield generator that is really slow. Even the Engi B and Federation C is better, and THAT'S saying something. Actually Simo-H is my favorite among the c ...

Re: "Your crewmember is insta-killed by a suspicious boarder

Come to think of it, Mantis and Slug-gaining (Pod, Engi prisoner, Moons) events have such great risk as compared to other races (Intelligent life forms for engi, Envoy for Zoltan, Rockman wife delivery.)

Re: Making the switch to hard mode

"This is why I never give up." Reasonable assumption that the RNG was in your favor after having screwed you over earlier. In fact my very first victory on hard I had 1 life at the start of the 5th sector. 1 fuel. Decided to play on anyway since I'm half way through. 2nd node was a "n...

Re: Making the switch to hard mode

In general, I know that it's my fault 99.9% of the time... I'm going to have to say more like 40% of the time. About 40% of the nodes are basically death traps (Zoltan w/ Miss, AI with mind, AI with 2 drones and 2 lasers, Cutesy Interceptors with Glaive beams, Suns and Asteroid fields with 3 weapon...

Re: "Your crewmember is insta-killed by a suspicious boarder

This type of event is a risk you're taking if you have enough crew but not mantis or less crew (possibly a 2nd sector Mantis Controlled/Homeworld) you're willing to take the risk. I'm surprised there is no Slug blue option to telepathically assess the pod considering Slugs can feel the presence in m...

Re: New worst ship?

Bump. Right now the Mantis C seems to be taking the cake for me as worst ship ever. You know how sometimes you're lucky enough to get a crew member first jump? Sometimes nothing fancy. Just an engi or a human. Well this ship REQUIRES A MANTIS ON THE FIRST JUMP to make it even a viable boarding ship!...

Re: Making the switch to hard mode

To be honest I think beat the game once with any difficulty and you're pretty much set for hard mode. You know which decisions are good, which are risky but rewarding...stuff like that. I've only beaten the game twice in hard mode to be honest (once in Engi C and once in Fed C) but I'm playing the g...

Questions about Flagship's 3 turns in base = Loss.

1st form I wait for him (her rather, because ALL ships are female ;) ) in the base. When she gets to the base is that counted as 1 turn right? So 2nd form she jumps away. Defeat her and she hops back to base a 'final' time. Now if you go in there, get beat up and jump away, does the counter restart ...

Re: Zoltan Cruiser Unlock event is still bugged ?

When was this run ? Back when AE launched or some weeks ago ? It looks like the shield event is way rarer than getting the crew member. 3 days ago. If I remember correctly, I already had 8 crew members when I got the shield so it might be set to get the shield if Envoy can't join? I have the screen...

Re: Did you know? List little tips and tricks here!

WOW these tips are GOLD!!! :D Why did I not bother to check out this thread before? Anyway these are what I'd like to share from my limited experience, Did you know? You probably already know but the enemy crew is pretty stupid. Have you crew run around their ship to lure them into rooms you're gonn...
