Re: [Suggestion] Allow allocation of reactor power in battle

I can see both sides of this discussion, with the proviso that reallocating power should use your turn (like healing, you can move and reconfigure, but not reconfigure and attack). As stated, reallocating power could make the game too easy; but it could also open up different tactical avenues. It co...

Re: Zenith - Charge Mech

That's because you can unlock 2nd weapon level without powering up the first. Didn't realize that, thanks. It shows changes from default attack. But other upgrades show the cumulative. For example, with Burst Beam on the Zenith's Laser Mech, if you have "Ally Immune," the animation for &q...

Re: Into The Breach Archievements Guide <WIP>

I would say that for the format, group the team achievements together and group the overall achievements by category. Examples: Zenith Squad: Get Over here Glittering C-Beam Shield Mastery Recommendation: Put shields on the other two mechs, and have them block spawning Vek Metagame: Emerging Technol...

Zenith - Charge Mech

Ramming Engines third ability "+1 Damage" demo sprite shows that it will deal 1 damage to the mech and 3 damage to the target.However, it deals 2 damage to the mech and 4 to the target, due to the second ability. Not a big deal, but I thought I would point it out (killed myself not realizi...

Re: [Question] Does Satelite Launch building counts toward Lighting Mech attack

In game terms (AFAICT), the difference between a building and an environmental object is if it has green "HP" above the object (like mechs and enemies). You'll notice that buildings do not have HP markers, so when an ability says buildings are exempt - items without the HP markers are what...

Re: [Suggestion] Tooltip informing if Pilot is already unlocked.

I would say you could just have the pilot's name display in red (locked) or green (unlocked), rather than adding another field of data.

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

And another point - did you know that the mantis has a single blue option (regarding the mantis shup unlock acheivment) that does not effect the outcome of the event, and that the zoltan (and obviously human) have no blue options at all ? Don't know if anyone else addressed this in the forum but I ...

Re: How to use defence drones?

I would say it was ca combination of both. One of the simple facts of FLT seems to be that defense drones are magnets for lasers (and higher difficulties seems to increase this). That said, I generally get decent mileage out of my Defense Drones (best guess, one in three fights it will get blown up ...

Re: Am I the Only Person that Loves the Fregatidae?

I think it gets so much hate because what the hell is a Flak Gun doing on a boarding cruiser? Sure it's meant to show off that artillery systems can be different, but the Flak is just so out of place for me... The ship gets a little bit better though if you find another non-Zoltan crew. Then you ca...
