Re: The Engi Conspiracy!

Yeah, now that I think about it, I've never NOT been mislead by an engi distress beacon. It's always a mantis ship luring me in.

Re: Balance thoughts after 59 hours.

I disagree that teleporting is too good. In order for teleport to be reliable you need to upgrade it right away, otherwise you risk losing your crew if your tele is on cooldown. This means a huge initial investment. False. Level 1 teleporter is good enough in most situations. You only need an upgra...

Re: Worst I've Died

Even if he upgrades the med-bay how is he supposed to repair the O2? I got in this situation once and wasn't able to figure a way out even with lvl2 med bay...doesn't the repair progress reset when you run back to the med bay after like 1-2 seconds of repairing? I've never been in this situation, b...

Re: Just need a hug

I have solid success with Zoltan B by never upgrading the shield before sector 4-5. Focus on your engines first, your weapons are good enough for quick kills and the Zoltan Shield will protect you from any shots you can't dodge. As long as you can avoid a ship with, say, two beam weapons, you should...

Re: Why... does repair reset..?

Yeah, there's no real logical explanation for it (Unless, say, the repair process required holding something aloft or a similar scenario). At least the game is consistent, in that a boarding party that interrupts their attack on a system can't deal partial damage either.

Re: What an end

That's not quite a stalemate, as if you wait long enough every once and a while an enemy missile will land before your drone can shoot it down. The enemy is probably out of missiles. You can tell if they're out if their missile launcher is green but not firing. So either the OP got a lucky screensh...

Man the Drone System!

I'd love to see this be a possibility in a future patch or expansion. With an easily-reached potential of eight crew members and only four interactive systems, most ships wind up having extra crew that just sit around and occasionally put out fires or repair breaches. Allowing a crew member to man t...

Re: Ship sizes (dfferent teirs)

I'd like to see bigger ships, definitely. Something on par with or perhaps even larger than the Flagship. Terrible evade, takes a lot of hits but can tank them all day, with some big, slow cannons.

Re: Best Ship?

The zoltan b is easy to get. A lucky encounter with an unshielded auto-scout, which are common in sector 1, can get you the shields holding achievement. The Manpower one can be easily earned by heading straight for the exit and running when possible. Hah, I should have done that. I tried a few time...
