Re: Most important systems to man as engi?

Nah, you need to have the engi on the least critical system, so he can leave his station and assist with repairs. I think rockman is the best pilot. Put the the engi on shields or engine, or ideally have him free so he can repair without leaving a station umanned.

Re: This game would be AWESOME with PvP

Could be managable if weapons had a "volley" order.

Re: Question for the 99%-100%'s

Even lvl 1 shields should be enough to defend against a lvl 1 attack drone. It generally can't get through but randomly (I'd say with about a 20 - 25% chance) will do a very quick scoot and fire fairly close together in succession and that can get through lvl 1 shields. I'd say it was a mistake to v...

Re: Win without shields?

You're going to need attack drones for the second phase; time is working against you, you can't survive the powersurge, so you need to kill him before the swarm comes and pretty much just cross your fingers that weapons fire before then doesn't hit anything critical. It's possible, but you need atta...

Re: Confessions of a pirate...

DRM-hate is really just a way pirates use to rationalize stealing. "Oh, it's not my fault I'm pirating. It's their fault." That said, buying legit copies really buys you two things: Convenience: That you don't have to go and wait two or three times as long for a torrent that may or may not...

Re: Weapon Pre-igniter augmentation should be debuffed?

The way I see it, this game has plenty of "screw you" moments, but they're all "fair", more or less. No challenge in FTL is completely insurmountable. Letting enemies spawn with pre-igniters, however, could potentially create a situation where the player can't possibly overcome ...

Re: Suggestions for FTL 2

2) Being able to devote time to teching up. FTL discourages me with the fact that i'm unable to upgrade my ship to the necessary extent. I just never find enough guns, schematics, shops and scrap. And the game pace does not let me to float around collecting stuff! You just run through the galaxy pi...

Re: [Suggestion] Make Sector 1 less of a headache for Mantis

Lot of the unlockable ships have these type of unwinnable encounters in sector one. Zoltan B for instance, hit ANY ship with a beam drone and that's it - restart. Unshielded automated, maybe you got a chance. Beam drones burn down the Zoltan shield before the ions can even fire and you have to alloc...
