My Challenge to You...

Postby LemonLime » Thu Apr 11, 2013 8:25 pm

Here's my challenge i've got for you peeps...

Get to sector 7, and when you're just about to get to the exit beacon, start jumping back and forth between 2 beacons, until the Rebel Fleet catches up. Keep jumping back and forth and each battle is a "wave". Post how many waves you survived, and how you died! (I'm so cruel)

Unfortunately, your challenge doesn't work. Once the rebels catch you and you defeat a rebel beacon, that beacon becomes empty (no battle). The only thing that will happen is you will eventually run out of fuel.

Oh, I didn't realize. I guess just jump around and try to clear out the sector.

I would assume you get regular options for getting fuel.

I wonder, if you were willing to go through it and your ship gets powerful enough at the beginning, you could literally go forever like this, and end up with a disturbingly high score.

Though the way the RNG goes, you'll eventually die and then the top score on your high score list would be 200,000+ points in Sector 1 :D

I tried it and that's exactly what happens. You get the rebel encounter where you fight a ship, it has 2-4 fuel (or so).

You could repeat that indefinitely if your ship was strong enough.

You get 1 fuel for each ship

Yes, but you don't get one ship per jump. Once you've cleared the rebels out of a star, they won't come back.

I tested this and the when you run out of fuel, you get the normal event like I expected. When you kill them, you get a couple fuel and then you can continue. It's a bit of a pain and not super fun, not as fun as just hitting rebels over and over with each jump would be.
