Re: Suggestion: Sometimes beam pierce shields

Beam weapons are a bit hard to balance it's true. If you have ion or lasers to get through their shields, the pike beam could do 6 damage in one shot (which feels OP). But if you cant get through their shields it does 0 (which feels underpowered). Maybe it means that most people always stick to las...

Re: Potential Bug: Boarding in the final battle [Spoilers]

Or knowing what you know now just pull your crew out before that happens ;) funny when every encounter earlier where you murder every crew member ends in victory that you realise that this single encounter will screw you. Also no personnel replacements in the end unless you are lucky to have that o...

Suggestion: Random End Boss

Once you've seen the final boss you can steer your ship build towards defeating it. Maybe as an expansion or later patch you could have either a randomly generated end boss (same hull different load outs and special weapons) or have 5 or more different end boss ship designs so you won't know what yo...

Re: Suggestion: Multiplayer Co-op mode

just spitballin as has been said too late to implement, although who knows thier expansion plans (FYI I will pay for expansions :D ) A 2 ship co-op mode would be cool. you always jump together and a pause for one person pauses it for the other as well. this would allow fighting 2 even 3 enemy ships ...

Re: Suggestion: Sometimes beam pierce shields

The Halberd Beam does 2dmg per room. if it hits a ship with 1 shield its does 1 dmg per room which even then sucks against 3,4 and 5 shield oppoents unless your got two or more other weapons that reliably crack shields and then its ownz. Maybe beams could have an ability "if beam only strikes 1...
