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

Some people don't like FTL's gameplay...because they don't like FTL's gameplay. It's as simple as that. People have different tastes. I love FTL. I hate the RTS genre as a whole. That doesn't make it bad. It just means I don't like it. I know it's hard to understand, but different people like and a...

Re: How often do you get to "The Last Stand" on normal?

I've been getting there almost every time on Normal, ship choice not seeming to matter too much. My last run was with Engi ship B (Vortex, the one that starts with one crew and no sensors). Actually defeating that monster of a boss though.... yeah, no, that's not happening yet. I popped it's first f...

Re: I feel like this game has too much correct play.

I can sorta agree with some of this, to a point. At least as far as the combat goes. More specifically, for MOST of the game, I find there are ALOT of different tactics that can work to defeat enemy ships (with me taking little damage), and gain me a powerful, upgraded ship with a big crew and lotsa...

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

IMO The game really needs a checkpoint at the start of each sector, every time you have to revert to a check point you have a stat that ticks one to show you did.. Those of you 'Im a OG bad ass mofo' can choose not to use them if you wish.. ( no offense :P ) I dont do WoWcrack, I dont feel like spe...

Re: Experiences from games and pointers for future developme

I think the game gets more of a reputation for being "too much luck-based" than it really deserves. I'd had this thought myself as well, but after more time with it, I'm finding this isnt entirely the case. Some of the problems can come from bad planning.... in my previous run that I just ...

Re: I don't get it

*sigh* http://crawl.develz.org/wordpress/ Here, have a real roguelike. It even has (basic) graphics. I would like everyone who thinks FTL is too hard to play a few games of stone soup and see real difficulty. I recommend to play a kobold, then you don't have to worry about food. I would also like t...

Re: Complete Ships Guide [SPOILERS]

If you would unlock everything using cheats, the game would lose a lot of charm. Anyway I suppose it comes down to personal preference, I personally love the challange. Aye, that's true. I'm really irritable though so I'll say things like that every now and then, haha. Usually I resist the urge to ...

Re: Some initial feedback

Cloak is great for dodging missiles. You can shot out of it it just doesn't last as long if you do. Its main use early game is at one power to dodge missiles for 1 power and it basically gives you first strike after the enemy misses with his first volley. I'd thought of that, but it doesnt seem to ...

Re: Some initial feedback

As for the cloaking, the enemies weapons stops charging when you,the player, cloak. Stealth system would be a lot less useful if all it did was allow the other ship to synch up his weapons for one big volley. It doesn't make sense if you try to find a realistic explanation for it. (there are a few ...

Some initial feedback

So, yeah, been putting some good time into this game since it came out; I'd been in the beta, but had only played it on and off during that time while things were being worked on and all. I've now had a good 20 hours or so with the game, figured I'd share some initial thoughts on it. First of all, t...
