Re: Best possible ship

Without an igniter quad Flak-I's spray a pretty good argument. Except for availability I don't see why you'd mix F1's and BL2's -- one BL2 pushes your barrage timing to 12 anyway, so why not 4x BL2's? The day I see a store with a shelf stocked full of BL2's or Flak guns ... bringing 4 of either of t...

Re: Best possible ship

Pre-igniter, twin Flak-2's and a Pike Beam for blowing stuff up. Drone with 1 Defense 1 + 1 Overshield (overshields layer up while enemies are cloaked), hull repair in cargo, for not getting blown up. Teleporter for maximizing loot. Sending boarders to blow up the mothership 3x missile is something ...

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

Edit: Carefully reading the thread I've discovered TWO(!) tips no one else has mentioned: 1. Shield Drone counters cloak. That shield drone will keep layering on ZS overcharges up to 5 if the enemy gives it time. Cloakers are all about giving you time. 2. It's a lot easier to asphyxiate boarders if ...

Re: Who thought this was a good idea?

I'm trying to keep the Federaton-Saving Ship to be vague so it could be any ship. Kestrle, Osprey, Nesasio, Carnelian... But maybe... So you wish to avoid disasters like this: "At last! With this many beam weapons and beam drones that Stealth Cruiser is going DOWN!" *Bzzzip wooo* "A ...

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

Worst fight ever: Elite commando Lanius and Rock units transport into damaged nav room of a drone to suppress FTL jump. Drone AI ignores boarders and auto-repairs the nav system. Commandos attack newly-repaired system. Drone jumps away, never to be seen again. I imagine my Lanius commando eventually...
