How to have a victory handed to you on a silver platter:

This is a screenshot of my loadout at...what, end of sector 4 or 5?

It was nuts. Everything died in 2-3 volleys, boss included.

Re: Sudden, shocking failure of design

Such disappointment. I truly loved this game, 27 hours so far and wrote one of the most popular entries on the fiction forum... Then in my lazy on-off campaigns, I came up against the end boss for the second time. Truly exciting battle for the first phase, he nearly got my little Engi Torus before ...

Re: So I've been trying to get a victory...

Finally did it! http://i.imgur.com/Rd2kVNl.jpg The ion blast was bought in the first store I ran into in sector 1, and it suddenly changed me from: "can't beat anything with more than 1 shield" to "can eventually disable any ship". I was then able to focus all my scrap on defensi...

Re: Winning Streak Challenge

To give you an idea... Normal-Show Beacon Paths off Kestral A - Easy Win (unlocked B + Rock Cruiser & Engi + Federation by default) Kestral B - Easy Win Engi A - Dicey at end of Sector 2 when Beacon paths did not match up and had to fight through 4 rebel fleets. Came out with 3 hull. Win (Unloc...

what happens after you run out of fuel?

So I've been trying to get a victory...

on all ships (b types included) on normal difficulty, now that i've unlocked everything.

Re: starship capable of FTL

Either that or Tantive IV, depending on what kind of nerds the people who worked on it are.

Re: Moments that aren't quite game ending...

Once I got to the last part of the game where you have to destroy the Rebel Flagship and this time for once I actually had a good ship that stood a chance of winning. Unfortunately I jumped to the wrong beacon and the Flagship flew past me and then got too close to the Federation base and it was ga...

1) All of your worst scores tend to be ships with names that aren't the default name.
2) You don't fight giant spiders.
3) Burst Laser II is a easy purchase decision.
