MY FIRST VICTOR......Wait, what?....FUUUUUUUU

Postby GTFOToast » Sat Jan 12, 2013 4:05 am

I still can't stop sighing as i write this :(
So, I started out the game with a Zoltan B (Noether) on easy, was one of my best runs.
Maxed out my weapon output, was fitted with
Pegasus (My fav weapon <3, 2 missile out of one is pretty sweet)
Pike beam, Ion blast 1, and a Hull laser mark 1.
And it had also 3 shields, full cloak, you know, all the good stuff.

had no problems whatsoever on the first stage of the boss, but the second part is where it got tense.
Managed to do quite some damage until the boss had 2 hull damage left.

2 HULLS, THATS ALL I HAD TO TAKE OUT.

I had the pegasus charging up so, even if I hit 1 missile at him the boss would go down and i could've gone to
the repair bay to get ready for my first victory.

BUT NO, the game wouldn't let me, right when I decided to fire the missile, the power surge activated,
took down my shields and right when i was about to fire, the weapon bay was offline.

And there went my ship and all my dreams and hopes.
*sigh*
I'm gonna go play another round.
God this game is additcive.

Argh! :lol:

My first boss fight ended up in a stalemate, I had no further means to damage it, he had no more weapons... :roll:

The very first time I played FTL, I got to sector 8! But I couldn't beat the boss because I only had the burst laser and Artemis missile. So very inexperienced.

Even though there is a st3, you can breate a sigh of relief. Stage 2 is by far the most burtal as you get assaulted by drones, boarding drones and a whole swarm of drones when a power surge hits. If you live through that, you're on your way to victory as stage 3 has fewer weapons to hurt you with and the power surge is much weaker then the one in st2.

Congratulations on surviving the stage 2 hell.

...if you have cloaking.

In my last game I didn't get a cloak so stage 3 raped me much harder than stage 2. After Stage 2 I lost 3 hull, after stage 3 I had only about half my hull left.

lol yeah stage 2 is by far the hardest with the drone swarm and the boarding drones. Stage 3 is not that much because all you got to deal with is the zoltan shield (which charges back up after time) and the crew. Not to mention that the ship dose cheat. I had lvl 3 sensors and verified that the drone system was completely offline system and still got assaulted by the drone swarm. And also killed every crew member and you get the message that the ship mus have had some advance AI.

Come to think of it I could see some story improvement with a fluff. Like at stage 3 the life support goes offline and the entire crew teleports on your ship. Then as you see there is no life signs on board you get a message from the rebel leader/founder Mr. (Bad Name) who taunts your attempt to stop his conquest of the galaxy. Like the madman reached immortality by transferring his conscious to the warship.
