A very painful new game experience-- on easy, too!

Postby wolfboyft » Sat Dec 26, 2015 2:07 pm

Hi! I'm wolfboyft, and I'm going to act as though I'm anew member here, because hopefully none of you remember me.
Just decided to pick this game back up today and see how enjoyable it really is once again.

Now, look at the painful Steam screenshot below:

Rebel flagship on one hull. Why did I have to die, though? Simply because I didn't think about how damned important it actually is to fully break their super missile systems. *Sighs.*
A very painful experience in the ordinary Kestrel Cruiser, on easy difficulty too! With Advanced Edition features enabled. Ugh.

Oh wait.

There are stages.

Be sure to kill all the Flagship's crew except for the guy operating the triple lasers. You don't want the ship to be devoid of crew. It's dangerous.

Yeah I remember it all now, except for how many stages the flagship has.

How many?

There are three stages. One for each wing you destroy.
Yes somehow by shooting at the ship's centre, you only blow up a wing.

That is interesting.
No matter what complicated structure you build, shooting at a part or hitting it with a blast wave will decrease that part's integrity, and the flagship is obviously not designed to channel a blast wave to the wing structures.

I call the Flagship a witch and I try to burn it alive when I see it. Either that or breach it a lot...

Or just kill it in twenty four seconds with a whole lot of pewpew...

I don't think the Flagship is a witch. Because witches are made of wood. And wood floats. You know what else floats? A duck!

Now if someone could make a ship that resembles a duck...

... Maybe the Flagship is a ship built by super advanced witch ducks disguised as humans! It would explain those Rebel Riggers with twin BLII's, a Pre-Igniter, and twin Attack II drones... :P

Many fake killers. MFK. Seems legit...
