Re: Ship with 5 SHIELDS????

I lose to the Rebel fighters in the Last Stand WAY more than the boss. The boss is actually pretty easy with preset armaments. I'll absolutely murder the first form, then I'll jump away, get into a fight with a tiny escort ship and get slaughtered.

Re: I am soooo ANGRY!!!

I like fighting things with drones. They're about the only thing that get me out of autofiring all the ships to death.

Re: Using the Bravais /Crystal Men

Crystal Weapons are more powerful, true, but fail horribly against the second phase of the boss (because crystals act as missiles, and can be shot down by defense drones). The Crystal Ship is set up the way it is to take advantage of the Crystal's natural abilities...namely, venting any boarders tha...

Re: Don't understand why some people don't like FTL's gamepl

Some people don't like FTL's gameplay...because they don't like FTL's gameplay. It's as simple as that. People have different tastes. I love FTL. I hate the RTS genre as a whole. That doesn't make it bad. It just means I don't like it. I know it's hard to understand, but different people like and ar...

Re: FTL MMO? Just a random thought.

That is true, but don't think of it as a conversion, think of it more as an expansion! :) I think it is unlikely that Justin and Matthew will sell the IP. Don't think you will be able to make any expansion as such. Don't even see how that would work. you would have to change so many core mechanics ...

Re: FTL MMO? Just a random thought.

Honestly, it wouldn't convert very well. With all the things that would need to be converted or changed to become a successful MMO, it would be unrecognizable after being finished.

And honestly, if I want a space MMO, I'll just go play EVE Online some more.

Re: Repair Cost by Sector

Pretty sure it's random. I know the devs had to make it so that saving and loading at a shop didn't change the repair price.

Re: Doors Are Important!

I deal with boarders just fine with level 2 doors. The trick is to start venting most of your ship the second you see they have a teleporter. When they finally teleport over, lock them into whatever room they arrived in (hopefully a systemless room, but it's usually alright unless it's the door or O...

Re: wanting more

Most companies do do what you've said...they just charge you full price for it. How many changes do you think they make to the annual Madden game every year? Or to every COD game? Or if you mean solely improve the same game, there's a lot of that as well. WoW is constantly adding more content and mi...

Re: Final ship frustrations...

Honestly, if you don't have anything against it...save scum. I got the capsule (which I usually do a lot), I got the crystal guy, then found the Rock Homeworld and decided now would be a good time to save, quit, and back up that save. Wouldn't have gotten it if I hadn't either, because the jump was ...
