Re: Is "Instant Death" a Common Part of the Game?

"Luck" implies (at least to me) that something bad was supposed to happen and you got lucky and avoided it. Like you had 10% dodge and that ship-killing missile missed. Having your defense drone shoot a missile that would have hit your drone system, which would then start a chain reaction...

Re: Boarding vs Destroying?

@Thread in general: I'm not a big fan of all paths being equal, that just isn't how things work out in the real world. If you take a ship intact, it's entirely reasonable to expect that you can acquire more valuable things faster than if you blew it up. It's almost always better to subvert something...

Re: 69 hours, still no wins

I forgot to mention, but for dodging you only need power in the engines right before an enemy projectile is about to hit. Engines are the easiest system to squeeze for extra power bars. I think it's specifically when it's about to hit your shield. Anyways I thought I'd emphasize this particular poi...

Re: Teleport is OP

Honestly, a simple fix could be to have more ships do a FTL jump. That would put the boarding party at serious risk if you leave them for too long. That would also prompt the need for weapons to quickly bring down fleeing enemies, which I think would balance out the gameplay a bit better. There cou...

Re: The Last Stand

Alright thanks guys, but how close does the boss have to be to the base in order for me to defeat him once and for all? Does he have to have only one jump left, in other words, be in the adjacent system? You can make 9 jumps that are not you chasing the enemy flagship, then you lose, its just a tim...

Re: sometimes, you get a little too OP

My best was on the Kestrel: 2 burst laser mk2 and a glaive beam with a weapon pre igniter and 2 automated reloaders. I also had 2 antiship Mk2 drones and cloaking level 3. I had 6 zoltan, and a rockman+crystal anti-boarding crew/pilot. The only minor vulnerability is that I never upgraded shields be...

Re: [MOD][WIP] FTL Infinite Space

EDIT: IVE GOT IT!!! THE PROBLEM WITH BOARDING! Too many goddamned automated ships! im at the second sector and ive encountered at least 12 auto-scouts or auto-assault. Yeah, i can deal with one of them every once in a while but not 3 in a row that all have a missile weapon or ion spam with laser. i...

Re: Maybe not a bug, but shouldn't really happen

My usual method of acquiring vast amounts of fuel is to accept sector 1 surrenders (that offer 5+ fuel and 10+ scrap) and buy out every store I find in the first 2 sectors. I usually have about 30 fuel when I enter sector 3, if not then I buy all the fuel I find there too. I'd really enjoy a "R...

Re: Pre-igniter vs Auto-loader

I pretty much always go for an auto-reloader, because I prefer to remove enemy shields with ion blasts. If you have 2 or more ion blasts (And master gunner), then the reloader allows you to apply an infinitely increasing amount of ion damage, allowing you to defeat any ship without worry... Except t...

Re: 57 hours, on easy, zero victories

Read all the guides, including the tips forum. Tried the Kestrel, Stealth, Torus and Rock. Tried ions, missiles, bombs, lasers. At least 30% of the time I die before the Last Stand because I run out of something. Some of the time it's fuel and the fleet catches and kills me. The rest of the time it...
