Re: Your "Fuck you, FTL" Moments

I just logged on for the first time in months after hearing about the massive update. Gave it a shot, had a bunch of fun with the new content. Then, running Mantis B, I managed to lose THREE upgraded mantis boarders in a single encounter. I had no idea Zoltans exploded now. It sucked =( Still manage...

Re: Is it worth buying a Teleporter?

Teleporters are extremely powerful, and ships built around teleporter strategies tend to be considered the best ships. It takes some getting used to, as well as a good boarding crew to make it work, though. Engi are only capable of dealing half combat damage, so they're a terrible choice for a board...

Re: need help beating the game

Yeah, don't do this. Beating FTL for the first time was extremely rewarding, on a similar level to taking down big bosses for the first time in Dark Souls (which, if you haven't played it, is an extremely difficult and unforgiving game). There are plenty of good ships to use without resorting to ove...

Re: Zoltan carrier

I'm messing about with the new version (haven't played the old version), and, while I like the design of a drone-centric zoltan ship, I'm not finding any challenge playing this ship. It's just too powerful, even with the removal of the Zoltan shield. I managed to get a Beam Drone mk 1 in sector 1, a...

Re: [Ship] Auto-Cruiser v.1.1

Beat the game on normal with this, version 1.0, last night. Sweet ship! I let Saren die immediately and played the whole game fully automated. I love the emphasis on drone combat, something I'm always reluctant to try, even with drone-heavy ships, due to lack of drone parts. Starting with a repair a...

Re: Your "Fuck you, FTL" Moments

I started a Mantis B run yesterday, usually a stress-free auto-win for me. Didn't feel like trying too hard. Well, after finding no new crew in sectors 1 or 2, I wound up jumping to a solar flare beacon against a zoltan ship. That would have been bad enough, and I was able to escape without taking t...

Re: 5thHorseman's Playthroughs of Each Ship

You made the Auto-Cruiser look quite fun, so I downloaded it and took it for a spin, too. Lost in sector 3 due to never finding a new weapon, which sucked because I HAD managed to upgrade the shoddy laser drone to an anti-ship drone and also picked up a defense drone. I found that you can often get ...

Re: 5thHorseman's Playthroughs of Each Ship

Yikes, that's a tough-looking ship. I may have to give it a shot and see if my luck is better than yours. I'm curious, why didn't you sell the anti-personnel drones? They seem pretty bad on a ship with no oxygen supply. Any enemy boarders will most likely die before they can do much damage, and the ...

Re: 5thHorseman's Playthroughs of Each Ship

Let me start by saying that I'm thoroughly enjoying watching these videos, and I've downloaded several mods after watching you play them. I've also picked up several tricks and slightly altered my purchase priorities, which seems to have been for the better. Nice work! I have to say, though, that yo...

Re: Luckiest start ever.

That's some seriously good luck. A score of 5000 is great, my personal best was 5200 and that was with three scrap recovery arms and a boarding ship. To get 5000 with a "normal" ship like Crystal A is incredible.
