Re: Most Difficult Achievements?

Yeah for the boarding drone definitely weaken the crew with boarders and then let the boarding drone finish them off. Clash of the titans is very luck based. You need a lot of rock sectors. Remember that you have to destroy the ships. It doesn't count if you finish off all their crew to beat them. A...

Re: Some thoughts about multiplayer in FTL

I think a coop mode could be fun. Limit the power of each ship by lowering the max reactor power. Only giving a couple weapon slots. Limiting the number of systems ships can have. Maybe give you some power of your ships formation. Like have one ship in front of the other so it can tank for both ship...

Or keeping the O2 knocked out and asphyxiating the enemy crew or lighting enough fires to burn them all to death.

Re: [IDEA] Mantis Flagship

New boss battle idea: 12 mantis boarders! "Suddenly, your world changes. All the mantis are on board your ship." Have it disable doors too, so you can't cheat with airlocks. I'd still cut the O2 and run everybody to the medbay (moving extras back and forth through the room) while I let th...

Re: Surrender

I generally don't take surrender. I'm a fan of more scrap and usually destroying the enemy provides more scrap. The exceptions are for slaves or weapons/augments. Only because those tend to work out as greater rewards than the extra scrap I would get. My funny story is on my run for the pacifism ach...

Re: Favorite Weapon?

Perhaps you will enjoy a video I saw of someone who played the whole game through with his entire ship vented from start to finish. Quite a lot of medbay micro required for that one. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GNHfxwbETaM Just made my account here to thank you for that link. I watched it in one...

Re: Minimum Energy Requirement for Combat

You could do pretty well with 2 power on The Nesasio. Heck you could probably win most sector 1 battles with 1 power. The dual laser is sick.

Re: Gameplay Suggestion

Or be able to salvage scrap after it blows up! >:D Yeah, I'm evil :P I sorta thought that might happen. If I let a ship surrender and then it blows up from asteroids hitting it or fires burning through systems that we'd say "well I guess there's no sense leaving these parts here now...+x fuel ...

Re: Blessing of the RNG

The RNG giveth and the RNG taketh away. Since I love playing the Mantis B, it's almost pure luck until you get out of sector one most of the time, and the computer doesn't always like to be all that nice to me for that many jumps. Once on my first jump I'll hit an auto scout with missiles, which ju...

Re: The Engi Beatdown Squad

Aw come on even with that crew you can use boarding strategies. I recently did a play through where I dismissed any crewmember that wasn't a human. I still used boarding for most of my kills. I got 4 humans fully leveled up for fighting and I got a level 3 teleporter. With that setup and an ion bomb...
