Re: Best Weapon Combos

Vulcan + just about any 1 power weapon is devastating for only using 5 power. Dual vulcans with drones ... I bet that was a fireworks show. The classic "board the rocket launcher" standard mothership fighting strategy probably wasn't even possible without endangering the boarding party to ...

Re: 'Iron Man' Game Play

By the classic Firaxis definition of "Iron Man" (which these days is more likely to be called "PermaDeath" -- the Internet has spoken!) FTL comes out of the box with Ironman a mandatory setting. Playing X-Com (classic) Ironman-style is the only way to play; every agent's death is...

Re: FTL Rules Of Thumb

Put some injured crew in the medbay next time you face a hacking drone. It acts as a magnet! :P

55. Your drone recovery arm will recover no more than 6 drones before you replace it with an end-game augment.

Re: FTL Rules Of Thumb

53. For every n hacking drones on an enemy ship your defense drones can shoot down n-1 . 54. If there are injured crew in the medbay the hacking drone that gets through will land there. 55. Ships rigged with lots of fast weapons are guaranteed to find pre-igniters. 56. Install that Vulcan you found ...

Re: Your "Fuck you, FTL" Moments

Every "Surprise! We snuck up on you, boarded your ship with half a dozen guys, drained all your oxygen, and disabled your medbay. Have a nice day!" event when I have a slug on board makes me want to smash something. Apparently everybody's slugs are psychic except mine.

Re: What is your favourite ship - and why?

My third Rock B attempt I got Fire Suppression in Sector 1. That one augment turns this ship into a battle-hardened survivor. Engi A, Red Tail, and Mantis B were all a lot of fun; it's hard to decide between Engi A and Red Tail for best ship. Engi A starts much closer to having missile defense and l...

Re: Favorite way to win a battle?

Rock men standing guard in a burning medbay while mantis search-and-destroy teams seek out stragglers sheltering in the unburned rooms.

"Rock men are guarding the medbay. We can't put out the fires! Could this day get any worse?"
