Re: disappointed with final boss.

If your strat relied on boarding, kill all but the laser gunner, knock down their shields with your boarders. then plink the thing to death with your guns. Unless you are playing as Mantis or Crystal B, you have no excuses to be at the final boss with no guns. And if you can't kill the enemy crew in...

Re: So how do you beat this game?

The problem lies in not knowing the fundamentals of the game. Excepting Power Surges, the boss cannot use broken systems just like every other ship. If you break a weapon, it will be down for the remainder of the round unless it's crew member is still alive. Ion + missiles is a rather lackluster con...

Re: Clash of the Titans (Secret ship spoilers)

I'm pretty sure you need to destroy the ship itself, not just the crew.

Re: The ultimate pacifism run

In addition to no weapons, you can't teleport or use offensive drones. This would be anti-ship, beam and boarding drones.

Doing the same thing with the artillery beam 3 times in a single run. Much more fail.

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

I don't think the anti-bio beam does either.


*edit: I was wrong, the anti-bio beam does help knock down zoltan shields. This leads me to believe that all beams do.

Re: Getting effective weapon loadouts via die roll.

What's the most unusual weapon combination you've had to make work? Slug Cruiser start-up weapon. :roll: I beat the final boss on normal with a slug/human boarding party of two, A dual laser, burst 1 combo, and the anti bio beam. Nothing like not being able to hurt the enemy ship until you've lucki...

Re: Is EASY level beatable 100%?

The Vortex on easy was my first win. It's not as bad as people make it out to be. You just have to not get one of the events that kills your one crew member.

Re: Is EASY level beatable 100%?

On a slightly related note, I'd call the difficulties normal and hard rather than easy and normal.

Re: How are you supposed to use the rock ship?

I find Rock A annoying as well. What I end up doing is only using the Art missile to hit weapons once, then letting the hull missile hit only hull until the enemy is dead. It's also important to note that you can't afford to farm the rebel fleet until you have reliable firepower.
