First jump, solar flare, auto ship, mind control.
Restart, try again. First jump, solar flare, Zoltan-shielded ship, mind control.
Wouldn't say it's my worst run but I'd rather restart than take a lot of damage and fires for no loot gains.
Maybe there should be a 'What's the worst luck you've ever had thread'! I tend to get luckier with awful cruisers, and screwed by RNG when I take a better ship. I think the Shrike is falling into that second category. I recently tried again using someone's shield advice, and I got much further than usual. That was until Mantis Bomber with missiles blows up the Clonebay, hacks my Mind Control and Boarders destroy the weapons
Man, my luck is awful. (Just to put this into perspective, I was playing monopoly, and I needed anything but a 2 or a 4. That's an 8/9 chance, right? Nope. Roll a 4 and end up on Mayfair with a hotel. Fml)
