Re: Advanced Players: How are you beating normal?

So wait. Now i learn that lvl3 sensors allow you to beam boarders back of a cloaked ship?? I'm pretty sure he means that you get to see the countdown on the cloak, so you know when it will happen. I almost never pay for level 3 sensors, though, so maybe I'm misreading this. This. You can see the co...

Re: Advanced Players: How are you beating normal?

Yeah, 100hp boarders can just barely survive on a drone with a lv2 teleporter, but it is quite risky. They're dead if your teleporter gets hit, and they're dead if they happen to get hit on the way to the medbay after beaming back. They'll get back to the ship with 2-3 HP. It's not something you wa...

Re: Advanced Players: How are you beating normal?

1. I always upgrade my shields as soon as I get 50 scrap. I find that with two shields, around 60-70% of my sector 1 and 2 battles are ones that I can take power off my engines (or oxygen, to keep some power on my engines for avoiding missiles) and throw them into my shields to avoid any chance of ...

Re: How often do you get to "The Last Stand" on normal?

19 Victories in 78 games, not sure how many reached Sector 8 but died. The beta patch to show node connections was a godsend, I haven't lost a game in the half dozen or so I've done since then.

Re: Easy mode ludicrously hard

The worst RNG I've ever experienced in this game was on the Zoltan Cruiser's B-layout. The very first jump put me in an asteroid field against an enemy ship that had a beam drone. That single fight took me down to 40% hull, but I survived, regrouped, and went on to defeat the boss. Even the worst R...

Re: Your dumbest FTL moments

Just now made it to the boss with the Zoltan B. I had max shields, level 6 engines, a defense drone mark II, and cloaking. My weapons were 3 ion bursts and a fire beam. About an hour and a half into the first stage I finally decided to open all of my ship's airlocks let the entire crew get sucked i...
