I think the reason OP is getting such a hard time is because he's claiming he managed to lose 90% of his hull in the first jump to bad game design.

And he refuses to say how it happoned, leading most people to presume he played outright awfully and is anouther one of those vocal annoyances who, on the far to common case they are listened too, get games dumbed down to auto-win mode when nothing is actually wrong.

That, and it is a Rougelike. If you can't die to doing something wrong in easy mode, it's being done wrong.

Even i he is someone like that, wouldn't it be better to explain what a roguelike is rather than attacking his "skill" or lack thereof? Tell him that he will evolve and become better over time, because that is the way the game is designed. ;)

Instead of telling him he is just bad suggest that most players come across those situations, but they stick with it and learn to cope with it. I've seen people say that they have finished it on the first or third try in this thread which just reinforces his belief that the game is broken. The game isn't designed for that, saying that you can do it is sending the wrong message to OP. I know what those that said it meant by it and were trying to argue... but they missed a step in the explanation. :( The game is centered around being destroyed and restarting and finding enjoyment in learning from that. Not from cruising through the game and getting the end screen. That's just a bonus. ;)

This isn't a casual game and might not be the right type of game for him. Or he could try to enjoy it in another way.

OP has failed to provide any significant details about the way he died. Therefore the thread is pointless and considering the response to the entire thread, probably wrong. :roll:

I think he forgot to read the part where dying is part of the experience in FTL. Nothing you can do but try again (or ragequit and uninstall, I suppose).

The OP is clearly a mongoloid, this game is if anything too easy.

You clearly didn't have an upbringing. You are if anything rude. :twisted:

I wouldn't say just "a bit easier" on the enemy ships.. Enemy ships on normal are about 2 sectors of difficulty above easy mode ships.

When you run into a ship with a triple burst laser and a beam on the first jump... :cry:

Lol, if only preventing rudeness was as simple as a proper upbringing. The world would be a much nicer place!

But I digress, the OP is whiny and incompetent.

He just doesn't know what a roguelike is and no one has bothered to tell him.

Some people in this thread are really a bit self-important...

Many of us also play Roguelikes and do not feel the need to flaunt our internet weenies.
It really takes a lot of effort not to lose faith in humanity when you see "OP is whiny and incompetent".

Really, the shame of it. Imagine what your mother would say if she knew you were talking like that to people.
