Re: To Kirby : The human who couldn't, a fitting tribute

LOL. I think the difference between those who are liking this game and those who aren't is the ability to appreciate a good tragedy and/or laugh at the occasional super epic fail. I lost a game once in the first sector with my ship at full health random events ate all my crew. The tragic tail of the...

Re: Difference Between Difficulty, and Just Plain Bad Luck

OP I found the mad man when I had a Slug crew member. They were able to Telepathically screen him for problems. I think with a lot of these types of events, there's a ship component/crew member type that can remove the random component. Without it/them you're trying your luck (which I usually do). I...

Re: Your "Fuck you, FTL" Moments

Ouch about the mad man. I found with a slug crew member there is a blue option to check if he's dangerous.
There's usually a blue option when face with these dangerous choices, but only if you have the right upgrade/crew member on board.

Re: The difficulty curve needs work

If the final sector is that bad, you're missing some element to your strategy. The final boss took me 5-6 attempts to get through. Probably 2 attempts per stage. This is on easy mind you. Of all the runs I've done I only reach the boss every 3rd run due to bad luck, bad decisions or just general bad...

Re: store at the exit always?

My usual strategy when needing to shop is trying to jump to "middle" nodes. You can spot stores from a jump away most of the time and there's usually 2 stores per sector. So what I do is try to sit 1 jump from every star in the sector at some point. this way i'm very likely to run in to a ...

Re: Looking for suggestions.

you know about opening the airlocks and fighting in the medbay when you get boarded? Also doors upgrade for only 20 scrap. boarders then have to break them down. hopefully you keep them sitting in vacuum the entire time. when they get in to a room, leave it's door open and have your crew run to the ...

Re: Looking for suggestions.

Fire Bomb is handy as long as you don't encounter super shields (zoltan ships have super shields) But seriously, don't stress too much, I think I've had 10 successful runs on easy out of 50 or so attempts. Things will happen, you will die. *shrug* Some runs you think you're going to make it and you ...

Re: Your "Fuck you, FTL" Moments

Less of a FYF and more of a DOH! Had two sets of trained boarders in the sector before the boss. By the Boss sector I had accidentally killed them all by destroying ships they were on. Had to path thru an asteroid system on stealth ship in first sector Had all crew members die in Random events in th...

Re: Just beat the boss on easy. It was easy. :P

Yah, my normal strategy for the boss is to use boarders or bombs to drop that multi missile launcher, then drop the ion and beam. ideally you take out the crew member in there so they never come back. stage two same thing, generally i try to cloak when drones are out in force stage three same thing,...
