My Challenge to You...

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.
