Re: Your "Fuck you, FTL" Moments

I just had a moment like this today. Engi B. Would have been an awesome run managing to get 7 crew members and burst laser II and 2 heavy lasers by Sector 3. Pretty much ripped through ships sectors 1 and 2. Problem was the game wasn't giving me fuel. Encountered a fully armed 3 shield AI with comba...

Re: Your "Fuck you, FTL" Moments

My lasers go miss miss miss miss My ship goes boom boom boom Ftl in a nutshell "My missles go miss miss miss miss My ship goes boom boom boom" Bulwark in a nutshell. I fucking hate that ship because it's not a ship they deliberately made hard to use. It has some of the most powerful start...

Re: How's crystal cruiser rare?

I have probably played somewhere over 1500 hours and 505 games and 142 wins and haven't unlocked the Crystal cruiser via the quest route even once. You are very lucky indeed. Yeah. I'm only at about 70 hrs. In fact it was in 2 games where I got the statis pod distress signal twice. About 3 more whe...

Re: How's crystal cruiser rare?

It's weird I actually got the Crystal Cruiser trying to unlock the Shivan. I had like 2 Bulwark runs with 2 encounters of the damaged Stasis pod, one of which I chose the weapon. After no luck of unlocking the "Is it warm in here?" achievement, I went into the Crystal homeworlds really sur...

Re: Favorite way to win a battle?

Been using the Basilisk lately and my favorite way to win as of now is on ships with med bays. Wearing crews down with my mantises and having 2 guys waiting at the med bay. It's hilarious if it happens to be an engi who gets the kill adding insult to injury. :lol:

Re: Other games with harsh difficulty

Since this has been bumped, it may be retro but FALLOUT 2 on Hard is on par with the difficulty of FTL on Normal with a crappy ship. A huge difference though is that it can be saved anytime, anywhere but you'd need a lot of luck crossing the desert for the first 2 or 3 times without an ally. FALLOUT...

Re: Who are 'you' in the game?

Encountered this scenario earlier: A slug captain hails and invites himself aboard your ship to present a flask of something slimy. Now, most gracioussss captain, you must join me please in a drink to our alliance. 1. Drink You take a cautious gulp. It's foul, but doesn't do any lasting damage. It's...

Re: New worst ship?

Freg and Stealths B and C are obvious choices but they're more in the "so-impossibly-hard-it's-funny-ships" imho. Worst ship for me has to be the Bulwark. Attempted some hard runs earlier and in the hangar the ship looked decent but then you'd have to spend at least 5 missles getting rid o...

Re: Who are 'you' in the game?

Damn right the Feds don't trust the crew! Those bastards are evil. I once got a 'blue option' with a fire beam to burn citizens' crops to intimidate them. Fucking brutal!! XD
