Re: Advice needed on current situation.

The Osprey is a beast once it gets a teleporter. Use either the Mantis + Slug, or Mantis + Rock, as a boarding party and you can disable most ships. Boarding takes some getting used to, but it is a ridiculously effective strategy in FTL.

Re: Suggestion: Second Chance

Being able to continue the game with the enemy's hi-jacked ship would be awesome!

Re: Various Valorous Virtual Ventures - FTL Videos

I just watched your run with the Adjudicator (Zoltan ship A), where you got the Manpower achievement and unlocked the B configuration. Excellent video, and I love the commentary. Great job and thanks for sharing! I did notice one thing that I do that you don't: use the power from the O2 generator. M...

Re: Kestrel vs The Stealth Cruiser

Most ships will end the game looking roughly the same way, so the variety of ships is more for the early game. I prefer the Nesasio over the Kestrel because I find the early game adrenaline of playing with no shields tons of fun (the first half of the first sector is particularly hectic; and I don't...

Re: New here, questions.

Hello! And welcome to the forums! Here are some answers, although I am sure that others will have more to say: 1. No. Manning a station by more than one crew has no benefit, except when repairing damage. 2. With the Kestrel you will want to get Shields lvl 2 as soon as possible. Then aim for an extr...

Re: Quick question.

I once had a ship with an enemy drone aboard it for almost an entire sector. It had moved away from the breach into a system-less room, so I just left it there, sort of like a battle trophy.

Re: disappointed with final boss.

I find that to beat the last boss you don't need a Cloak and Teleport, having only one is enough if the rest of your ship is well upgraded. Having both makes it very easy, once you understand the whole mechanics of the encounter of course. A little trick is to try and fight the flag ship while one s...

Re: Holy cow... Normal Difficulty?

LOL, welcome to FTL. Anyways, while yes it is possible to have terrible starts in this game (I've had my ship blow up on the first fight), once you get to understand the game it really isn't that hard. The initial hump is to get shields lvl 2 ASAP, and a bit more offense then you're good for a while...
