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

2-3 drone shots is hardly game-ending... It is when a single hit to weapons room means pretty much game over. (no, you will not repair and recharge the glaive, nor manage to charge your FTL when under constant fire of a beam drone AND an enemy ship) With upgraded stealth systems you shouldn't be lo...

Re: Burst Laser Mk3

The only time I was satisfied with the Burst 3 was when running the stealth B, as its CD is still shorter than the glaive, it allows you to strip shields until the last sector to one shot or 2 shot most enemy ships. I find it more reliable than an ion bomb to strip shield, and it doesn't prevent th...

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: How to get the Burn-Enemy Achievement?

Another way is to upgrade your blast doors and firebomb your own ship.

Re: Using only One Species

Engine --- Zoltan. Another Zoltan or two to keep him company. Shield ---- Any but Mantis Zoltan energy is unaffected by Ion, so any multiple of 2 should always be in the shield room. This renders your other systems immune to Ion entirely, since you'll always have that 1(or 2) shield(s) up. This is ...

Re: Zzandrio's Boarding Guide (video)

If you don't have blast doors, you can still suffocate the enemy boarders by tag teaming them in the vacuum. I've managed to repel a 4 mantis boarding party with Zoltans and no blast doors using this trick.

Re: Using only One Species

I've gotten 7/8 Zoltans, but never found that last one sadly. Then I would've had a good reason to use the autopilot.

Re: Burst Laser Mk3

I feel like the burst laser 3 is way to over powered. It is stronger than ever other lvl 3 weapon, it has the highes damage (aside from a glaive beam hitting every room oc) and shuts down every shield. This weapon is so op that I even sell all my other stuff when ever I am come across a shop thats ...

Re: Love to see a longer game

I'd suggest simply having actual subsystem damage to balance it out, meaning that you have to use scrap to repair your systems (How do you repair dozens of hull breaches with absolutely no resources??). An easy way to implement this would be to make systems lose a rank when they turn red, forcing yo...
