Re: Is EASY level beatable 100%?

With enough experience, understanding of the game, and skill, it is possible to achieve a much higher win ratio on easy than you have. I wouldn't recommend trying normal until you manage to start winning more often.

Re: Some of the text makes no sense.

There are a few other events where someone refers to you as "humans" even if you are in the ship of some other race and have no human crew.

Re: Please Help!

If you succeed at taking out the crew in the first stage you shouldn't be having too much trouble. You can then send in boarders to take out the shields and drones easily enough once you do that. Two things help with the drone surges: put a lot of power into your engines. If you have low dodge you'l...

Re: The stealth ship

Still, without shields you're screwed if the enemy has an anti-ship drone. Also, you'll be hard pressed to cripple enemies in a single volley if they have a zoltan shield.

Re: The Red Tail

Someone should go through and calculate ships on damage per second. The red-tail will outpace most everything with its .4. Voltan A, which is a great ship, has only about .23 or so, and it's almost completely sunk by level 2 shields. I think normal with the red tail is easier than easy with the roc...

Re: Game Suggestions

Enemies aren't immune to solar flares. It just seems like it sometimes as a lot of the enemies you face are automated ships with no oxygen, so the fires quickly go out. But they do get started, and it can damage other enemy ships (though they often end up being rock ships, and rock crew are immune t...

Re: Suggestion: Emergency Power Management

I find myself doing quite a bit of power management in the final boss fight, when the reactor is maxed but I have more system upgrades than I can use at the same time. I'll disable my weapons to put more power into engines, shields, and defense drones while I send crew members teleporting to disable...

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

I wouldn't trust what wikia says further than i could throw a Rock. You sometimes find a prisoner when you board an enemy ship that offers to join up. Very rare but possible. You sometimes get a surrender offer from a slave ship. If you accept you get a random cremember. Also possible to get a free...

Re: Enemies teleported onto different enemy ship

The enemy normally teleports low health boarders back, it just doesn't check if the boarders are from the same encounter.
