Things that tend to be true about the average FTL player:

Postby IConquer » Sun Apr 07, 2013 1:02 pm

1) All of your worst scores tend to be ships with names that aren't the default name.
2) You don't fight giant spiders.
3) Burst Laser II is a easy purchase decision.

2 and 3 are me. I've only named like 3 (of the hundreds) of ships I've played, though, because I can't be bothered.

I'd add more, but I'm coming up blank.

1) I...haven't actually tried yet. Lets test this theory...

2) Tried once. Never done it since (because seriously, fuck giant spiders :P )

3) Always ^.^ Although, I think I'd buy a firebomb if given the choice...

Well... I made that first one because I had noticed that when I first got this game, it was real exciting and I named every ship and got all into it...

now like 200 games later, all my lowest scores are named ships because back when I still did that, I wasn't too good at the game!

Interestingly the only ship I ever named was "The Archeologist" which unlocked the crystal ship. :P

All of my named ships have the highest scores. I name all of the ships I actually intend to play a full game with, and only ever leave them unnamed if I'm just quickly testing something. :P

I totally agree on all three. I named ships early on, but found it easier to use the defaults to remember which was which. I still use custom names for my crew though, although I recently went in and just modified the default name list. I did spider thing a ton early on before getting disgusted with it; I think I had one good result out of a dozen or two attempts. And yes of course Burst Mk2 is the best weapon. :D

4) you lost at least once by losing all your crew
5) you did open all air locks by accident
6) You get excited if you get Jean-Luc Picard as a crew member during a game.

Does surrendering (the only) crew to the slaver on the Vortex count? :lol:

I've also won once by losing all my crew. 8-)
