Yeah, I used to be that way too until about 40 failed attempts on Normal. You don't learn much if you are beaten in the first round, you know.

Re: Boarders and Sun jumps

Have you finished the game on Easy yet? If not, I would recommend doing that and unlocking a ship or two. Here is what works for me when being boarded near a sun: invest into blast doors (lvl 2) ASAP. Vent your entire ship except med bay area (have your crew gather there) and turn off life support t...

Re: Mantis Cruiser A makes me want to hurt myself.

Fleeing often reduces your scrap per jump. It´s not really enough to just survive until Sector 7. You have to increase in power to take on ships of the next sector and ultimately the boss. Bad luck is getting 3 ships you can´t fight in a row, equipped with rockets you can´t evade before you´re able...

Re: The stealth ship

It´s not like you can choose what the shop has to offer. I have maybe gotten a Burst Laser Mark 2 once in a shop, dropped twice. In 70+ games. The other things are a bit situational, like for example a Halberd Beam doesn´t help much if you can´t remove shield completely for a shot. You can also hav...

Re: Am I just a REALLY bad player, is it this hard for every

I played this game about 70 times so far. I'd say the problem is not the difficulty, but a very basic tutorial and lack of in game help. New players should not have to go to strategy forums to learn that beams never miss or that bombs ignore shields. Having said that, it is a very enjoyable game onc...

Re: Allowing exit to fall into enemy territory

There is not much of a point of winning a fight in enemy territory as you only get one fuel as spoils. Just flee as soon your drive (be sure to upgrade it to lvl 3+) charges.

Re: The stealth ship

Still, without shields you're screwed if the enemy has an anti-ship drone. Also, you'll be hard pressed to cripple enemies in a single volley if they have a zoltan shield. What good is anti-ship drone if the drone control is busted? :twisted: Now, Zoltan shield... that's bad news. Anyway, if you ar...

I don't see what's wrong with fitting X-wing with other weapons -- it's supposed to be really versatile, right?

Re: The Vortex[tips]

This way you could employ a strategy like the following: - open all airlocks and doors, except for the helm room - when boarded, activate an anti-personnel drone. The lack of oxygen should help even out the fight. Tried this last night. When boarded turn off life support and close all the blast doo...

Re: The stealth ship

Alternatively, instead of saving for early shields, upgrade your cloak to lvl 2 ASAP and try to maintain a weapon setup that is capable of severely crippling or killing most enemy ships after first volley (the lvl 2 cloak will ensure that you shoot first). The ship is equipped with good engines and ...
