80 hours, still no wins

The engines issue was completely hidden to me. I saw nothing in the gameplay that suggested that upgrading my engines helped anything except recharge time. But clearly this is as, or more, important that any other upgrade. Not that it has helped though. It's the same thing every time. *Something* ha...

Re: Now what?

*sigh*

Next game, *exact* same outcome.

And no, you do not have time to pick off the systems, they have too many guys fixing stuff and healing.

Re: Now what?

Ran out of time. I didn't realize he was still moving while we were in combat.

Now what?

The last stand, normal human ship, transporters.

Out of missiles. One repair base in upper left corner.

Managed to use transporters to take out all his weapons, but now what? If I transport into anywhere else on the ship, they rotate crews through the medbay and slowly whittle me down.

Suggestions?

Re: 69 hours, still no wins

My opinion is get L5 engines and a better weapon. And max your reactor. :D How?! Even on easy, and deliberately seeking combat, I never have enough money to max *anything*. I generally upgrade my shields to 3 or 4 if possible, and maybe my pilotage and doors. That leaves me with enough for one othe...

Why can't I charge my guns against cloaked ships?

The subject says it all. Is there some logic I'm missing here?

After accepting surrender, the can still hit you

If you accept an enemy ship's surrender, any shots you had flying towards them all miss.

Seeing a missile coming toward me, I accepted surrender. Of course my missile disappeared while their's continued on its way and exploded my engines.

Thanks.

Asteroids stop hitting if the ship surrenders

Let's say you're in combat in an asteroid field and the enemy ship offers to surrender. If they do, asteroids stop hitting them. They don't stop hitting you, however.

Re: 69 hours, still no wins

Just to prove the point… next game (I am truly a glutton for punishment), third jump, four boarders, dead.

69 hours, still no wins

I somehow managed to launch FTL by mistake, fat fingering CS:GO I guess. I played for another couple of games, with the same results. 69 hours in, not one win. I've read the guide and hints, and used a variety of them. No help. Invariably the one thing I haven't afforded to buy is what kills me. Don...
