[Suggestion] Variable game speed, please?

I love me some Mantis cruiser. Especially B and C. But I don't love auto-ships on those cruisers. Having to wait around for like, 5 battles in a row, praying for a weapon so that I can expedite their destruction is a complete and total pain! This setting would also come in handy if, say, you just OO...

Re: Did you know? List little tips and tricks here!

When boarding the Slug Interceptor with a vessel possessing a 4-room teleport and at least 3 crew, ideally 4, you can save a lot of time by targeting the teleporter on the engine compartment, thus boarding both it and the main ship.

Re: Your "LOL, FTL" moments

I've got a GREAT one for you guys. So I'm in Sector 7, powering through on Hard mode trying to get the Stealth C (I've unlocked all the C ships on Hard so far save for Stealth C and Slug C, and I'm not going to let the Stealth B defeat my efforts.) Great run, despite losing my Zoltan to some LOLBOAR...

I'm gonna point you over the Tips, Strategy, and Guides forum, where you'll find tons of advice - a lot of it cobbled up in the "Did you Know?" topic. :)

Re: Did you know? List little tips and tricks here!

When using the Stealth B and you meet LOLZOLTAN pirates in sector 1, simply aim your beam so that only the tip of your Glaive is going to hit their weapon room. This way, you can disable it and warm up another shot free of counterattack. If you accept a surrender, you can avoid taking any damage fro...

Use Mind Control to delay repairs in critical rooms on the enemy ship.

Re: Did you know? List little tips and tricks here!

If an auto/lanius ship is using an ion bomb, and you're running a boarding strategy, you can teleport your crew back in the instant before it detonates in the event that it lands on your teleporter. Want your Lanius boarder to gain a golden glove? Set him loose in an auto-ship, he'll be a crack comm...

Re: Did you know? List little tips and tricks here!

Tired of being boarded on the Stealth B? Fret not! Use the time allotted by your cloak* to man the doors, turn off your O2, and vent all but the necessary rooms!

P.S: That medbay up in the corner? Useless. Get a Clone Bay when you can!

*Does not apply boarding events, sucker

Re: Your "Fuck you, FTL" Moments

I jumped into a pulsar with a Rebel Rigger in sector 2. Heavy laser, Beam 2, playing Rock B. I fired my heavy pierce at his weapon room. MISS! Okay, maybe I'd better set fire to his drones. MISS. I manage to hold together long enough for another shot at his weapons. MISS~!!!! Weapon room gets ion'd ...
