Re: Funiest Things You've Ever Done in FTL

I once bought myself 2 rocks, having earned lots of scrap. The very next jump, I boarded a station...and one of them died. Damn. :evil: After trying to multitask between playing my 3DS and killing an AI ship with mantis boarders on a mantis B ship, I managed to asphyxiate them. So, I ended up havin...

Re: Your "Fuck you, FTL" Moments

I was in a zoltan sector and just cracked open my damaged stasis pod. A few jumps later I got some info about a zoltan hailing me and blah blah so I pull the ship in closer expecting a fight. Nope one of my crew starts to age backwards and eventually disappears or something. Sure enough my crystal c...

Re: I won!

You'll rarely find the weapons you would like to have, so practise putting anything you find to good use. Unless the ship starts with a mighty weapon, usually you have to play a scavenger. I think it's a stroke of genius too. By limiting the weapons you'll find along the way it forces each run to b...

Re: Scanners and Ship Unlocks...

With the interceptor, you would wind up with crew stuck in the O2 and crew stuck in the engines (assuming you maxed out crew on you ship) until they perished from lack of a medbay. Maybe just one of the two. You could fit 6 crew in the main cabin and then the extra two would likely bubble over into...

Re: Scanners and Ship Unlocks...

Rather off topic, but I think it would be interesting and hilarious to commandeer ships if yours gets blown up while you have guys on board the enemy ship. (Assuming their crew is dead). 'Nooooooooo Why did it have to be a slug intercepter?!?!' 'Because you blew up the oxygen and it wanted vengeanc...

Re: I won!

Congrats. You've made it over a big hurdle. Now try to win with other ships and start setting aim on the achievements. Getting them in normal is totally the way to go.

Re: Crystal Ship Unlock...

I don't think they should rework the crystal ship unlock. Sure it's incredibly difficult to unlock, but it's the secret ship after all. It should be the most difficult to unlock. I played for around 200 hours always making the crystal quest my top priority. It took me a long long time to find it, bu...

Re: Favorite Weapon?

I wonder what it would be like if you had 3 Sys-Repair drones on Engi Cruiser B. Just leave the entire ship (except for the pilot area) always depressurized and just let the drones fix the damage done by boarders before they suffocate and die. Only problem is, if your Drone Control room is bombed, ...

Re: Love the game, hate the random

Yeah but like beam drone can end your run before you get shields. One swipe to take down your weapons another to kill your piloting and you can't even run while it shreds you along with whatever the enemy ship is dealing out. Well, you see... it doesn't work like that. I've seen my share of beam dr...

Re: Love the game, hate the random

Uh... how about 'no'? Stealth Cruiser A is easily the best all-around ship after the Crystal Cruiser (and definitely on par with Kestrel). It is equipped to deal with each and every situation that may arise in the first 3 sectors without requiring any upgrades, except for the 2nd level cloak. Long ...
