Re: The DA-SR 12 is godawful and needs a buff.

I would really like the DA-SR12 to have an unique augment to make it feel a bit special. I will argue for the same. Here is a few thoughts on that. 1. Special Augment - "Active Camouflage" : Similar behavior to medbay, while your cloak system is powered (and not ioned), it provides you th...

Re: Rock Cruiser Maiden Flight Goes Wrong

What a great way to lose :) Mine best was when i went the upper road through the sector with exit beacon on the right lower part of the map. When i came to planet 1 jump away from exit beacon Ive realized they aren't connected,even thou in 99% of the situations beacons at that distance are connecte...

Re: Engines Give you More Jumps?

And they add dodge, I wouldnt even bother with more than 3 points in them otherwise. But you know what, the idea of slowing the rebels pursuit according to engine power is a nice one. Perhaps "delaying" the initial rebel pursuit appearance? For each level of engine, you "delay" ...

Re: Fire Beam + 2x Ion Burst II

This must be a pretty fun setup to play with, but probably won't work on normal because on that difficulty the boss has a pretty high evasion chance (which means you will miss A LOT of Ion shots). *snip* I'm looking forward to use this combo. It must be pretty fun - against regular ships. I will ag...

Re: Burst Laser Mk3

In the case of the Burst Laser 3, there's two things going on here. First is that the BL2 is a ridiculously good weapon, and it's expected that the BL3 should be better (after all, 3 is bigger than 2!). Secondly though is that the BL3's increased offensive output comes with some major caveats (4 po...

Re: Fire Beam + 2x Ion Burst II

Got that setup before too! So much FUN! :twisted: Only difference is that I also got a measly heavy laser one. So against boss I had the option just burning the shield and helm down before proceeding to slowly pepper it to death. I don't even bother dropping the medbay. Once I have their shield and ...

Re: Final Boss (normal) Fool proof strat

Actually, upon careful thinking, I finally pin-point what's wrong with OP's supposed "guide". OP's guide to winning the boss fight, in Chess equivalent, is this: Stage 1: Check Stage 2: Check Stage 3: Check Guaranteed checkmate. Yes, dropping the shield is required to win boss fight, but O...

Re: Your early game strategies for Stealth Ship B?

Did you get a Pre-Ignitor from event? Haha, not that lucky. The main turning point was when I got hermes missile from an event in sector 1. That worked great to deal with the otherwise unwinnable encounters - the missile had faster charge time (what hasn't) and could function even with a damaged we...

Re: Final Boss (normal) Fool proof strat

As far-fetched as (some of) my proposed scenarios might be, I was simply assuming: - Not having to rely on random weapon drops/shops, this means no use of completely awesome weapons, such as an Ion Bomb I agree. The OP's main problem is that you must have weapons that either bypass shield or can dr...
