Re: Are Mantis cruisers really worth it?

Also of note: the Mantis B is probably the easiest ship to get the Pacifism Run achievement. Two shields and a defense drone are a pretty good defensive loadout.

Re: How to kill crew efficiently??

Only other thing: keep in mind that you can't beam off an enemy ship while it's stealthed. This can a one-way ticket to Asphyxiation Town on an automated ship, or it can get you overwhelmed on the flagship.

Thanks! Hoping to keep it coming. I've been playing the heck out of FTL again since the last steam sale, and I've been meaning to write some fun sci fi stuff for a while.

Re: What might you want to see in the new update?

I'd like to see more blue options for the Mantis and Zoltan. Also, there are currently no blue options for crystals. Maybe they ran out of developement time? There are two, but they're in the Crystal sector, so not exactly the stuff of average runthroughs. I don't mind that so much, anyway. Crystal...

Re: What might you want to see in the new update?

I'd like to see more blue options for the Mantis and Zoltan. I feel like I'm getting a little less bang for my buck with these guys than I would with a Rockman or Engi.

Re: How to kill crew efficiently??

A few tips: -Fight in their piloting room, even if they have a medbay. They'll fight your boarders until they're low on health, then they'll run to the medbay - after they flee and before their reinforcements can arrive, their ship will have dramatically reduced dodge chance.

Ghosts of the Federation

Ghosts of the Federation - A work of FTL fanfiction, still in progress as of 11/7/15. Enjoy. Chapter 1 Captain Brant looked at her data slate again, then back at the weapons. A bead of sweat ran down her from her forehead despite the cold, clinging damp of the slug ship. The cargo hold of Slokkran's...
