Hi there,

I just recently started playing FTL and I love it. So much so that I did a few video's with my brother on the game, even though I suck at it still. So if you want a complete noob's perspective on the game, and if you want a super cringe-worthy Let's Play of FTL, click the link below.

Here is part 1 of 3:

So... You've done some things right but most of it is still noobie.
First you've gotta set sector goals
5th horseman has a list for this but I personally go for

Sector 1, 3 engines
Sector 2/3 shields 2
Sector 4, engines 4/5 shields 3
Sector 5/6 cloaking
Sector 7 shields 4 or buff engines
Buffing durability... Here's an example
You have a lvl 2 oxygen but you don't need the second bar powered, so when it take 1 Dmg it still makes O2 for survival... (Exception Laius)
This sector thing can vary depending on what ship you use. If you use stealth a you won't need engines for a while and you start with cloak, but you need shields and if you don't get shields your screwed
Ps: if you see a status pod grab it. Because 1, the weapon is gonna suck and 2 the status pod leads to a very interesting secret (hint hint totally doesn't involve crystals nudge nudge)
If you need more help, wait for 5th horseman or someone else better than me to give a bigger list of things to not be nooby
