Moments that aren't quite game ending...

But they still make you ragequit: I was in the early stages of the mantis B's run, and I had upgraded my teleporter in case of an AI enemy. After gaining two more crew for helm and engines, I ran into an AI and figured I'd better start boarding it to get it down to low hp. Of course... It didn't hel...

When your ship is sitting at 1 HP

And you just decide. "No. Not happening. This ship is not going to blow up this sector".

And you win out the fight you were in just barely, then you manage to skirt around fights until you limp into a store...

And go on, 4 sectors later, to clear the game on normal.

Best. Feeling. Ever.

Re: Increase the difficulty?

even when you get used to events and use the "best" ships, there's still every possibility of running into one of those "you're effed" loadouts. I'd say that I have a 15-25% success rate with all ships unlocked.

So earlier I was cruising through the engi sector...

This was a run where I was trying to unlock the crystal cruiser. It's the second sector, so there's still a lot of ground to cover, and the interesting thing is that I have 4 jumps from the starting beacon to choose from. I pick one at random, and I'm a tad disappointed to discover that I just trigg...

Re: Sector Map with Names?

The issue i kind of have with it is that it allows players, especially those trying to get the crystal cruiser, the ability to immediately determine if the sector map has a proper layout to get the cruiser after exiting only the first sector. This could be a good or a bad thing, depending on how dif...
