Re: Did you know? List little tips and tricks here!

Dropping the shields in general gives you all kinds of power to shunt to other systems. At two bars per barrier even a little bit of weapon damage on an enemy ship can give you quite a bit of latitude with the power distribution.

Re: FTL Animated Adventures Ep. 1

Anyone who's played the game is getting the details filled in pretty nicely.

Also you draw Blackbird to be exceedingly hawt. She's the brothers' mom, right? Is it okay to say she's hawt? ;)

Re: Whats The Worst Ship in FTL?

The Engi-B was a close shave all the way through trying to stay one step ahead of enemy shields, but I managed to defeat the mothership. I was so poor I only had 3 shield layers. The Slug B is a real trial. Ugh. Edit: Slug B Cruiser victory! Cloning bay + kept the heal bomb; with 2 carefully microed...

Re: What were your most unusual/ridiculous fights ever?

That definitely beats having 2 crewmembers kidnapped by an escape jump. What a horrible way to go. :P

Re: Letting the Flagship win at the Base

The one reason I can think of to run the clock in sector 8 -- finding that last store -- becomes moot as the rebels take over the beacons. By the time the Flagship reaches the Base the chances of the last store even being there are pretty remote. 3 turns later it's even more remote.

Transcendence: Top-Down Space Roguelike

Transcendence is more like FTL than unlike. I'll go over the differences here: There is less emphasis on tactical management of the ship and more emphasis on the environment and surroundings. You will fight multiple opponents but can protect yourself with cover -- flying behind station debris will s...

Re: Zoltan sheild bybass mass-production?

Obviously there was a firesale not too long ago at every store in the game. Pirates, Rebels and everyone else bought all the Shield Bypasses, Burst Lasers, Flak guns and Boarding/Ion Drones before you could get there. That explains an awful lot, like the proliferation of Heavy Ion, BL1's, and Laser...
