Re: The most infuriating encounter in the game.

It's the Rock Mine Layer event for me.

You either have the proper equipment to get a blue option (the most economical being upgraded engines, which are terribly useless), or you're forced into a 50/50 chance to lose a crew member or get some petty scrap.

Re: Rock Cruiser

The rock ships aren't even boardings ships. "Boarding ship" = comes with a teleporter and requires boarding as a primary strategy early game. Naturally, ships that don't come with a teleporter will have no issues with any ships once you buy one because they almost all start with good enoug...

Re: Best Ship?

Red-Tail is probably the most consistently successful ship out of the ones you listed.

If you can unlock the Zoltan B, I believe that one is the absolute best ship in the game and I am confident I can win with it 100% of the time (now that I fully understand how to make the best use of the Ions).

Re: SSSPAMMMM!!!!

QCF runs the same forum software, I believe. They don't have a spam problem because they require a moderator to review each new account's first couple of posts before they can post freely.

Re: Rock Cruiser

I already know how powerful boarding is, and I never said it wasn't. Boarding ships simply have horrible early games against many ships. auto scouts/fighters Zoltan ships anything with a medbay (with the exception of the Crystal ship since it can lockdown) Are basically all off-limits until you get ...

Re: Rock Cruiser

Best ship in the game? I'd argue that isn't going to be a boarding ship. Boarding ships are such a crapshoot early game, you could easily lose early due to encounters against ships that you simply cannot board. Maybe the Basilisk is a safe option, since it starts with the 2 shields and defense drone...

Re: Please patch the cloak - let it reset after the enemy de

I was thinking about suggesting that the oxygen be reset as well, but theoretically you might actually want to keep certain sections vented or partially vented. might not be the best idea, but i think the option should remain, if only to mess around with. combined with the fact that while you'll al...

Re: My experice with the game

Yesterday I had one of those random boarding encounters at the 2nd jump. It was 6 Mantis against my 3 Zoltan. I died. Absolutely ridiculous. But I like that the game kicks your ass sometimes. The only thing that consistently bothers me is the lack of ways to deal with missiles early game. Those thin...

Re: Please patch the cloak - let it reset after the enemy de

Everytime I play the stealth ship, this desire keeps coming to me.
