Re: Appeal of the Stealth Cruiser type A?

The stealth cruiser type A suffers froom those very same issues. No it doesn't. That's the entire point. Versus drones you can get one volley out before your cloak runs out and early on that's enough to knock the system down. Taking damage to weapons is less critical as you lose much less time and ...

Re: Appeal of the Stealth Cruiser type A?

No amount of cloak timing will help you vs drones or if you get unlucky hit to the weapons/cloak or if you don't knock at least the weapon system with your first hit. The stealth cruiser type A suffers froom those very same issues. How often do you actually get enough weapons to replace the glaive ...

Re: Appeal of the Stealth Cruiser type A?

Main appeals: - long range scanners - titanium casing = free 50 scrap - very power-effective weapons so you can add any new ones easily. - cloak + fast weapons = very little damage taken in early sectors If you think the venting is bad go play Slug A. Or pretty much any Type A ship other than the R...

Appeal of the Stealth Cruiser type A?

I don't think the ship's other systems are good enough to make up for the lack of shields and mediocre weapons. Sure you get great engines and a cloak, but the venting pattern and starting crew is really poor. In addition, your weapons are quickly outclassed, not much leeway when compared to a ship ...

Re: Flying the Vortex

The thing about the vortex that gets me is the stupid layout. One crew with O2 right next to an airlock, and a whole ship away from the medbay.

I like to fly it with all the rooms but the shield room, medbay, and door control vented until I get another crewmember.

Re: Sole Survivor Challenge...

4th try with the Kestral A (Normal - No beacon paths - same human from the start) Success!!! Once through sector 2 it was a breeze. Very end of 2 gave me a 2nd Burst Laser 2. Add a Burst Laser I and Heavy Laser I in that was my final weapons kit. Survived with 1/2 my hull intact, no repairs between...

Re: Sole Survivor Challenge...

I'll try this with the Slug A, seems like it'd be fun. Advantages: self-sealing hull, blast doors, major system rooms close by (good for drones,) extra scrap from killing crew, slugs have no cons, medbay next to O2 Disadvantages: no drone bay, fires are a problem I'm likely ging to vent the entire ...

Re: Which ship is the most blue-option friendly one?

As far as crew go, the federation cruiser type A has a diverse starting crew. Rockmen and Engi have many blue options.

However the slug ships usually have better, but more rare blue events.
