Re: 5thHorseman's Playthroughs of Each Ship

Maybe it doesn't save you, but I was thinking you could do some damage with Laser Charger + Glaive Beam.

Also I was very surprised you didn't get L2 O2.

Re: 5thHorseman's Playthroughs of Each Ship

I would have kept that Laser Charger Mk I that you sold in ep 162 - hell, maybe even the Mk II as well. I don't know why you kept all missile & bomb weapons - makes no sense to me. Just keep one of the bombs. And the Laser Chargers are much less "garbage" than the Swarm Missiles - that...

Re: Your "Fuck you, FTL" Moments

Yeah, Virus ain't no KazaaakplethKilik.

It was the unStealth C on Hard, and I felt I was a little bit behind. I did another run right after, no Viruses, got blown up again.

Re: Your "Holy Crap" moments

Zoltan B Hard run, limping along. Weapons have been scarce or out of my price range this whole mission. The only time I bought one is when I went to a store, saw a Burst Laser Mk II, didn't quite have enough, jumped out and won a fight, then jumped back, sold off my two Ion Blasts, and bought it. So...

I needed Hacking to get through Shields, but it got hit - and set on fire. And the batte...

Re: Friggin' Fed C, ep 160

See what happens when you play on easy? You play badly, shoot your avatar and let him die, uncloned, because you were too slow to pause/power up the Clone Bay, and you feel horrible, even though you won with 20 HP. /smh

Re: 5thHorseman's Playthroughs of Each Ship

Re: Fed C, ep 155 I think I would have kept the Chain Laser. Boarders could maybe take down Shields so you could use it. Also would have upgraded the Flak Artillery, not bought Reconstructive Teleport. I sometimes call this ship the Fregaticide. You've got a Clone Bay - use it! Be ruthless and send ...

Re: Your "Holy Crap" moments

The Pincer - Tale of a Mantis B, or "Have Zoltan _____, Will Travel" (continued from here ) Sector 4, Zoltan Homeworlds. I picked up a replacement Engi. Then I had a Mantis join my crew. I got the Small Bomb online with the Flak Mk I. Things are looking up. Then I defeat an autoship and g...

Re: Your "Fuck you, FTL" Moments

The Pincer - Tale of a Mantis B, or "Repairs R Us" First jump, some energy ship, with a Zoltan Shield (!), Burst Laser Mk I and a bomb. Fuck you, FTL. I can't board, and their laser can't hurt me - except for that frackin' bomb. At first I thought it was a Fire Bomb, as it set a fire in t...

Re: [SHIP][AE] The Potential - UPDATED FOR AE!

Drone Control is a bit too much of an addition, mostly because it cuts into available systems (and therefore cuts down on the ship's potential). I'd rather cut upgrade prices a bit in the early game to make it a bit easier through the first few sectors, and therefore the rest of the game. Getting b...
