Re: Hardest beggining ship?

Dunno about crystal, but I'd argue Engi B. Stealth ship B has two in engines so it can at least pretend to run if engines take a hit and upgrading stealth makes most fights easier to surrive, and maybe dodge. Engi B doesn't even get crew to help with it's Ion's abysmal charge time(13 seconds). If th...

Re: Boarding Defense - A Commander's Manual

Pretty awesome writeup. On almost every ship I've played i've almost never felt the need for anything more complicated than the following- Upgrade blast doors to level 2(I've almost never bothered with lvl 3). Intruders flow chart- Can i just flat out murder them where they stand(superior numbers, f...

Re: make the boss fight a real challenge?

I'd be fine with this if there were more ways to affect the boss. As i've learned more and more i've figure out what kind of weapons combo's do and don't work, but realistically there are some runs where I feel I can get to him, but I just can't kill him. it'd be nice if rather than just have sector...

Re: Stealth cruiser full playthrough on normal

Can you manage to achieve "Bird of Prey - Destroy a ship at full health during a single cloak in the Stealth Cruiser" ? Is that mean need to cloak at the very beginning and destroy the enemy before the cloak time out ? That really difficult Just did this today- 1. I'm not sure, but I hit ...

Re: Stealth Ship B (Normal Win)

Yes, it is possible. And it's made much more sweeter thanks to the fact that it's my 1st ever Normal win, and all those topics around here saying how impossible that ship is. Winning strategy in nutshell: 1. Get Cloak 3 ASAP = nothing could touch you except drones/Zoltan shield users. For those you...

Re: Repair Arm

It seems like false hope though. If you're doing things right you likely don't need the arm at all(take almost no damage thanks to shields and knocking out weapon systems) and if things are tense enough you need the arm, you're probably taking a bad situation and making it much much worse. The lost ...

Re: Too Random.

And, ya know, I don't even believe you when you say that the ion-blast and 3 attack drones couldn't break their shields before they cloaked again. You fire one blast as soon as they decloak, and you should be easily able to do some damage before they recloak, they only have 4 shield points. Yeah, y...

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

Glaive beam is god-damn powerful. One well-aimed hit and most ships in the first three sectors should go boom. The weapon is also one of the rarest out there. In all my playthroughs (a couple dozens at least by now) I have only come across one Glaive Beam. It wasn't found in a store either, instead...

Re: Engi Variant B

The worst thing you cant assign repair bots and they are really stupid and repair not critical stuff most of the time. So at start you need to be really lucky to survive with 10% evade and "luck" repair crew. Why they didnt make onboard drones like crewmembers but with heal at dronebay? A...

Re: Engi Variant B

MAx out blast doors, vent oxygen to everywhere but cockpit, have a mantis and engi in there, use two system repair drones and one antipersonel, or one repair, one board, one defense, then just loadout on weapons and shields. Again any ship can be powerful late game. I'm asking how you survive to th...
