Re: Unbalanced ships

Re: fast weapons, what's happening is you are seeing weapons with short cooldowns. Leto missile, heavy laser, mini beam, ion blast small bomb all have pretty short cooldowns. Chain laser, vulcan laser get bonuses to cooldown after each shot. Many enemies have these "lighter" weapons. If yo...

Re: Your "LOL, FTL" moments

While finishing off a slaver, I was trying to kill their crew (which lets you pick from 3 races vs 1 at random). I was hitting them with a beam and they surrendered right as the last enemy crew was keeling over dead. :twisted: . I decided to be merciful and accept his dying wish (plus I didn't want ...

Re: Unbalanced ships

5th Horseman, this is my build order for Stealth B. Do you do the same? 1.) First 50 scrap upgrade to level 3 cloak 2.) If I find a 1 power weapon in sector 1/2, next 50 scrap to upgrade weapons to level 5. 3.) Additional scrap toward reactor as needed and build up evasion ideally to 6. A lot of peo...

Re: Augment suggestion: cloaking charger

That would be pretty good, almost a little OP. But I like the idea of cloaking augments, here's a few more ideas:

Perfect cloak- Cloaking always gives you 100% evasion.

Anti-cloak- Your cloaking counters the enemy's evasion boost from their cloak.

Re: Your "LOL, FTL" moments

I always hate it when a surrendering pirate managed to get one last parting shot right before they decide to surrender :evil: I had a close game where I was losing, but still doing damage to the enemy ship. They fired a volley, and took just enough damage to decide to give up. I gladly took their sc...

Re: Unbalanced ships

I really don't find Stealth B nearly as bad as Engi B. In fact Stealth B is so viable you don't even have to be in a huge hurry to get shields ASAP (I prefer to get level 3 cloak and a 5th tick of weapons first). It is an extremely specialized ship and you have to play it as such. Time your cloak to...

Re: What crew/equipment/weapon gives the most blue options?

The only blue options I know of for upgraded piloting are to give you a chance to engage an enemy ship in nebulas. Good if you have a boarding ship or a ship with good weapons. Teleporter gives more chances to get extra crew. There are some encounters that have a lot of different blue options; the o...

What crew/equipment/weapon gives the most blue options?

Some things give more blue options than others. Humans have only one, zoltan only a few, some special shipboard augments have a few (rock plating) And so forth. But what has the most? To some degree, choosing equipment is gambling on getting future blue options. Engi and ion weapon have many and are...
