Re: 57 hours, on easy, zero victories

You ought to try the Red-tail if it's available to you... you get 4x Basic Laser and you can replace them with better weapons as you go, so you're not as reliant on missiles/drones and you can stock them for the mid/end game.

Re: I think FTL should be easier

I think it would be fun if they patched the game to made "Hard" a selectable difficulty that forces no pause. Have a high score bonus, too. :) On a side note, I think Rubik's Cubes should be easier. Why can't they be the same color on every side? What kind of sick mind designed these thing...

Re: Think I broke the record for most boarders on board my s

Re: Possible to get 6000 score (without mods)?
