Re: Forum restrictions for new users!

First off, it was the height of irony (and very amusing) that when I checked this thread, the very first reply was a spam post. I thought it was a joke, but the user only had one post. Secondly, thanks for posting this, I didn't know this policy and hadn't come across it yet, but it surely would hav...

Re: Your "Fuck you, FTL" Moments

I had 2 shields and went up against a Zoltan in an asteroid field. I chuckled as the battle started. Would his shield still be up by the time my weapons charged? A few seconds into the battle, I noticed that not ONE asteroid even APPROACHED his ship. Meanwhile, 3 asteroids in quick succession hit mi...

Re: Halberd Beam doesn't work

Yeah I tried to find information on beams to tell me something like that but it just wasn't given and I assumed it was glitching since it did 1 dmg at least before when it had shields up. So sorry again, a mod can delete the topic. Oh no, they shouldn't (and I don't think they will). If you didn't ...

Re: Halberd Beam doesn't work

The game itself tells you this: Note: Beam damage is reduced by one for every shield it passes through, which allows for partial shield piercing. Your Halberd Beam only does 2 damage per room to a ship with 1 shield. It does 1 damage to a ship with 2 shields. Around sector 3-4 you start seeing ships...

Re: Challenge From Me

I don't understand the challenge? We have to... what exactly? Fail in the same way you did but beat the final boss? That seems extremely specific.

And "Not do anything nice" I assume is to limit bonuses? What if I burn the people's crops to impress the pirate, is that "not nice"?

On the very next jump, I find the portal to the crystal homeworlds.


You win. That's the most horrible story associated with this game I've ever heard.

Re: Worst map ever

And i thought it was bad when I had to fight the rebels 10 times in a row in a big horseshoe course back to the start and then to the exit. Luckily my ship was super decked out so each fight was easy. I ended up only losing one fuel the whole time because the rebel was as decked out as I was. Wow 1...

Re: The DA-SR 12 is godawful and needs a buff.

Using the advice in this thread, I decided to take the long-retired SR12 out for another spin. I was shocked at how well I did (after 3 quick losses due to the first ship I faced having a beam drone that shot my weapon first). I upped my cloak after the 3rd battle, got a shield in the 2nd sector, an...

5thHorseman's Playthroughs of Each Ship

All told, I've posted 34 full-run recordings. Most of these are victories but a few never saw the final boss. All in all, I'm pretty proud of my record (if not always my performance!) All Playlists ____________________________________________________________________ SEASON 4 In Season 4, I am playin...
