Re: Easy mode ludicrously hard

I laugh and grow a little more happy every time someone goes off on how mean the FTL community is. Everything "negative" in this topic is downright tame compared to almost any other gaming community. It's part of the reason I'm still visiting these forums, even though I haven't played the ...

Re: Accuracy

Nice necro there bud.

If it makes you feel any better, on my first game I got the achievement for taking 5 hits in a row with a fully powered, fully upgraded engine.

Re: Teleport enemies off your ship?

They should let me be able to steal their crew and lock them in my teleport room. :twisted:

Granted, that would be OP as hell, but yeah.

Re: Engis and Oxygen

I love the cooling fans explanation, even if it doesn't make that much sense because they could use CO2 too to refrigerate themselves. How would they expel the heat efficiently in both atmospheres and in vacuum? (wasn't the premise that they couldn't expel the heat from any refriggeration/heat exch...

Re: My best way to beat the BOSS so far

The third phase does have a power surge attack. It's a giant beam shotgun that will wreck you unless you have high defenses or a cloaking device.

Re: How to beat the boss: a simple guide. Costs 1285 scrap.

See, this relies too much on getting specific equipment, crew, etc. This game is more about adapting to what's given to you than making up a gameplan before hand. There are various ways to steamroll the boss. Don't lose because you're trying to shoehorn yourself into just one.

Re: What is your favourite ship - and why?

Am I the only one who really loves the Crystal Ship? o_o I think it makes the early game super easy. Both starting weapons have shield piercing which is really nice until you start running into 3 shield ships. I always pick up a teleporter early because Crystalmen rock for boarding. It's like "...

Re: Can I play as a ship boarder?

Anyone find the EVE line odd? Because there's a hundred different ways to play that game well. As for boarding, it's probably the easiest way to beat the game. Usually goes like this. 1)Encounter Enemy 2)Board Enemy 3)Nap 4)Profit Granted, this is with a mantis boarding crew. Trying to board with mo...

Re: Need help with the teleporter...

Most people I know don't really have a problem with it. Your cursor changes when you click the teleport back button, which should be all the information you need. I can see it tripping you up maybe one time.

Re: Easy mode ludicrously hard

I'm honestly scratching my head on how you could possibly get hurt that much in the first sector with the Kestrel. Even setting your guns on autofire on a systemless room will absolutely wipe the floor with everything in the first sector. The only way I could POSSIBLY see this happening is if that w...
