Re: FTL guide to boarding: V1.0

If you haven't done it yet, I suggest you go do it. Fire up a Shivan (rock-B), get a teleporter ASAP, and laugh maniacally at the carnage. The Shivan is, I think, the best boarding ship. No, it doesn't start with a teleporter, and no, you don't get a 4-person teleporter, but it's just.... so fun . ...

Re: What do you wish was in FTL?

A tactical near-space map, with your ship, enemy ship(s*), the ships or stations they are attacking, and any ships you're escorting. Also, possibly, asteroid fields, the sun, etc. You can click on this map to move your ship anywhere on the board, possibly at a speed to match your engine rating. Weap...

Re: Am I such a noob or what?

You are technically correct, but giving a new player a branching list of "if this then that" seemed a bad choice here, and considering you want to do it very, very frequently, deploying it every single time at the start is a perfectly viable strategy until you start to see situations where...

Re: Am I such a noob or what?

You need to figure out what's causing your ship to be so damaged, and change your strategies and tactics to reduce that damage. Any time you take a lot of damage in the game, you're committing scrap that you should be using to upgrade, on simply keeping the ship from falling apart. It's not always p...

Re: Most BS Death Ever

New players won't need to read this But now that the thread has been necroed, they can! The first "crew" (one guy. Poor guy) I teleported over died because I didn't know you could order them around the enemy ship. He just fought until he died. I thought teleporters were crap - and didn't ...

Re: Only 3,700 supporters out of 70,000 views for LEGO set?

You didn't put a link. I didn't even know about this until you posted it.

If "support" means "I would buy it" then no, I won't do it. I try to not be blatantly dishonest. If it means "I like this! Thumbs up!" then sure I'll click a button for you :)

I'm part of the 95%.

Lego's too expensive for what you get. This is a personal opinion and your opinion may differ.

Re: Question about ion weapon + a trick I found.

I'm a huge fan of the ion blast + ion blast 2 combo. They fire in nice sequence, the mk2 firing twice for every one time the mk1 fires. Every 8 seconds they do 3 ion damage, which is enough to keep a shield down even with a miss here and there. They ramp your gunner up QUICK which just helps all tha...

Re: Luckiest run so far.

I'm not sure if a teleporter/artillery beam combo is "lucky." I know when I tried it I quickly lost my boarding party to a lack of attention :)

Still, that's pretty durn nice.
