Re: Scrap Management Discussion

It all depends of course. It depends on the ship and what I need at the time. If I'm fairly well defended and think I can handle most opponents in the sector I'm in then I'll save scrap like it's going out of style. If my ship is going to take a beating in regular encounters then I'll upgrade my def...

Re: What is your favorite method of attacking?

Definitely boarding. It's just so versatile. It almost doesn't matter what your opponent's ship is. I've even boarded Lanius ships without having a clone bay before. Sure I had level 3 teleporters and was just chipping away at the Lanius crew, but it worked. However, if we're talking just about the ...

Re: Who is GMFaux?

I personally read it as gamefaqs whenever I get that crewmember. Feels like a nice shoutout to the gamefaqs community which still has a few active FTL message board posters.

Re: Fire Beam + 2x Ion Burst II

It's quite a fun weapons layout to have. I remember one time I was doing this for fun and I had a whole other layout in reserve for the flagship, but I forgot to switch before I jumped into battle with the flagship. I was like...uh oh how do I kill this thing? I didn't even think of running away and...

Re: Does anybody else...

I only named my ship and crew until I beat the game with that ship. Never went with a Firefly theme actually.

Re: Tally for crystal ship.

That's almost a laughable thing to ask. The game has been out for a long time now. I'm sure plenty of people have them. I've had them for longer than I can remember. Not that it was easy. I spent a lot of runs making unlocking them my main focus. This was all pre-AE of course. So, it took a lot of l...

Re: Vortex ship a joke?

Doors are first priority. Powering up shields and engines is second priority. The ship is decent unless your drone control is hit. Crew isn't a big deal until you're boarded, and without doors you are toast. The game makes it pretty easy to get more crew. I could see getting a doors upgrade at the ...

Re: Beating the flagship help

By the way if you can get 2 Lanius on your ship, those Mantises are no longer needed. Lanius are better than them at combat due to the fact that they can deplete oxygen in a room and thus deny the enemy access to it if they don't have a medbay.. That's probably a personal preference thing. I still ...

Re: Normal Mode Advanced Edition Help

Also, I'm curious to know what other people's favorite ship it. For me, that would be the only ship I've ever beaten Normal Mode with, and that's the Stealth Cruiser A. If you ask me, starting with the rare $150 stealth and long rage scanners beats starting with $125 shields. Mostly because the Tit...

Re: Making a point about points

It all depends on the ship for me. If we're talking a ship that starts out in a hole like stealth ships that need shields ASAP then my score is usually lower and 5000 is in the top range. If we're talking Mantis B that just tears through enemies getting max scrap left and right then 6000 is expected...
