Re: Too Random.

Well, that's odd, because I stuck 4 boarders in the cloak room and they were able to kill many of the crew before they even left the room on the way to the medbay. If I'd stuck another 2-4 in the corridor then none of the enemy crew would have made it to the medbay to survive. Were you using engis ...

Re: Unlocking new ships is way too difficult

Ships should definitely be easier to get. Not because the game should be easier, but because they add a lot of variety and replay value. Right now, by the time you get a few you are already getting burned out on the game.

Re: Too Random.

Just intentionally tried to beat the boss 4 times using only Drones/Teleport and it didn't work. All attempts were begun after boss offensive was neutered. First Try was 4 in the shield room and 4 in the cloak room. Med Bay Cycling meant no actual damage was done to either system. The ship cloaks af...

Re: Man up!

The game deviates from the expectations of the masses. Most people say to themselves, "I want to try playing the game 'this way' today". Where 'this way' is a heavy beam strategy, or an ion strategy, or a teleport strategy, or a drone strategy. Then they actually play the game and realize ...

Re: Too Random.

I've done more than 20 playthroughs myself . I'm guessing you have too. I've done 40+ and beaten the game on normal twice. I can easily kill the boss with teleporters and missiles/bombs, or any number of other combinations but some of the starting weapon options just don't work no matter what you d...

Re: Too Random.

Why are you even hitting their cloak? Forget the clock, hit their weapons. They can't repair those once the guy manning them dies, and he can't heal. Hit the missile guy first, then the rest. Once the enemy ship is wihout weapons, then it doesnt' matter if it cloaks or not. Of course you hit the mi...

Re: Too Random.

I thought this was the play-through where you didn't get any weapons in any of the shops? So now you're claiming it's a play-through where not a single shop had any weapons or crew? Because that sounds totally plausible... The 6 play-through where I didn't get any weapon shops, but you're right the...

Re: Too Random.

So. Send 6. Have 2 in the cloak room and send the other 4 as a distraction. Or even send the full 8, have 4 in the cloak and the other 4 in the med-bay, so that any that get damaged in the cloak room can't go to the med-bay to recover, because it's already full of their crew fighting off your 4 in ...

Zoltan Trick.

The Zoltan Shield in your inventory only influences the Zoltan Shield Display. Sell it for spare scrap and you will no longer see how many points of Zoltan Shield you have remaining, but you will still have the actual Zoltan Shield. :D

Even with four people in their cloak room at once, they can just cycle people through their Medbay.
