Re: This game makes Dark Souls seem easy--what's wrong? Help

OP: Your post makes me think that this is not the right game for you. I enjoy challenges and like hard games and puzzles. Having played lots of real roguelikes (I don't consider FTL to be a roguelike just because it has permadeath), there's much to be said about player experience being the takeaway...

Re: Your "Fuck you, FTL" Moments

Okay, I've just read through this entire thread and I honestly can't believe this has never happened to anybody else. Seriously? Final boss ship and my ship explode at exactly the same moment. Game over. No victory. It took me a week or two to come back to the game after that. Ha! Well technically ...

Re: The Basilisk

Those are both really good ideas actually. The repair drone helped alot. I got one good run recently where i actually got some pretty descent weapons. I had a half rock, half mantis boarding party which turns out is a pretty solid group. rocks suck up punishment and mantis's dish it out. I'm going t...

Re: Don't understand why some people don't like FTL's gamepl

The one thing i dont like about the randomness is that it is only by luck that you have what you need to beat the game. I've played for 35 hours so far and have yet to have the weapons/crew i need to beat the boss. The closest i've gotten was the very first time i got to the boss with the kestral A ...

The Basilisk

I REALLY want to love this ship, but it seems every time i just start to get things rolling, i get brutalized by an auto scout. I've lost 2 ships with full crews and an all gold mantis boarding party, plus tons of upgrades to an autoscout at a sun, and one in an asteroid belt. I'm pretty sure the on...

Re: Your "Fuck you, FTL" Moments

First jump in new game landed me in an asteroid field. A battle ensued with a scout i think. First hit takes out my oxygen and starts a fire. I vent the compartments to get rid of the fire and also cycle guys to between med bay and oxygen generator to fix it. Then the med bay gets hit. Over the next...
