Had 4 Mantis board me, I had door systems level 2 and so decided to vent the whole ship except for medbay and the helm (i needed the evasion as I had no shields) As my 2 crewmen pulled back to the med bay, they conducted...

Re: Can you beat the game without shields?

Is it possible, or i should abandon these attempts with the stealth ship? Am i forced to buy the shield upgrade? The beams and drones are ripping me apart. I'm currently attempting this, my plan is to get evasion as high as possible and focus on my Alpha strike. So far, no luck, but its early days ...

Re: Defense Against Missiles [A How-To Guide]

Nice guide, I particularly like the opening statement about adapting your strategy to the situation. Getting the best out of what you've got, that's the best piece of advice i'd give to anyone in FTL

Re: Hates and loves.

Well, I am still playing on easy ATM and the difficulty curve there goes something like this: __________| The boss is insanely more difficult than anything before it. But hey practice makes perfect. Imho you do need to get a transporter and cloak in order to beat him. I've beaten him twice so far o...

Usually I don't like to have to ban or censor anyone and I won't be removing the posts that are already up. But he/she took it too far and w...

Re: Man up!

I like that the devs don't get overly involved in the forums here... But "seriously", we could have stopped at {serisuly I think you are a dick and an idiot} Everything after that (either by the Troll or by the people feeding the troll) is a waste. Moderators: Please - just suspend the Tr...
