Tip on game start about cloaking

it reads: Cloaking prevents enemies from firing on your ship or charging their weapons. It also causes ALL currently flying shots to miss your ship. Which is untrue, cloaking cranks evasion up by 60% but it can still be less than 100%. Also, as per my observations, if you have shields up, and a miss...

Re: Kestrel vs The Stealth Cruiser

I like the stealth cruiser A better, early enemies usually have weapons that take 9-10 seconds to charge, causing them to fire in well-defined volleys, which are easily evaded with the cloaking system. And with cloaking level 2, you can charge your second volley when cloaked, which means that you ge...

Some subtle rebalancing opinions

I have no idea whether these are stupid or not, any opinion is welcome :D ! 1. Replace the Vortex's Heavy ion with an ion blast I Ion blast I and Heavy ion both disables and only disables 1 shield without auto-reloaders. While each Heavy ion hit disables the shield long enough for 2 Heavy laser shot...

Persistence has its reward

Today, when flying the Kestrel A, I jumped into a rebel rigger with my last FTL fuel. I had starting weapons, 2 shields and stealth. The enemy had dual laser + laser drone + defense drone (rendering my Artemis missile useless). For the enemy, if both dual laser bolts land, then if either shot fired ...

Re: [SUGGESTION] How to fix the Vortex.

Replacing heavy ion with ion blast 1 would help a lot. With the vortex your weapon need 13 seconds to charge, and both projectiles must both hit to do any damage, which is ridiculous for a ship that relies solely on weapons.

Re: [Feature Suggestion] Combat Simulator

I like this idea, if there is a working battle simulator, I can refine my boss fight setup more effectively. Just watched an episode of an anime where the protagonist ship found a strategy to defeat the superior enemy with whatever crap they could acquire through battle simulation. I want to do this...

Re: Engines Give you More Jumps?

In a way it does. Particularly if you have cloak, since it makes it easier to jump away when in combat from the rebels, so that gives you more leisure to explore beacons past the exit point. You've got a point, in cases where the exit beacon is quite far from the right border, being able to let the...

Re: Final Boss (normal) Fool proof strat

All of those things that go without saying are learned by experience , by not saying any of them you've missed the entire point of a guide, which is to help people that don't already know how to beat the game with their eyes closed. Exactly this. I was attempting to give new and struggling people a...

Re: Your early game strategies for Stealth Ship B?

If I have lv3 cloak and run into enemies with attack drones, I'd wait for around 6 seconds before entering stealth. They can put a few rounds into you before your glaive beam is ready anyway. This way at least you won't let them take out a near-full charge.
