Re: Rock Cruiser

I'm well aware of the power of boarding. I've unlocked every other ship and beaten the game with most of them. I'd like to try the fire+boarding strategy with the rock cruiser, I was just wondering if there was something else I was missing with that ship. Since it doesn't start with fire weaponry or...

Rock Cruiser

So, I see a lot of people praising the rock ship's strength on these forums. The rock ship was the last ship to unlock for me, and after trying it a few times I really didn't like it. I hate having a weapon system reliant of finite ammunition, I hate having a crew full of slow guys, I hate the door ...

Re: Faster Than Light - Tips for New Players

Should I even bother trying to start on Normal? Is Easy the only way to go when starting out? I'm just having a hard time groking this game and can't get past 3-4 sectors on Normal. Easy isn't the only way to go, but I'd say go for it at first. This game is pretty unforgiving when you don't know wh...

Re: Balance thoughts after 59 hours.

Agree with you on some points, disagree on others. Teleporting, I agree, should be toned down a bit. There's a "is there any reason NOT to teleport?" thread in the strategy forum, I think, that addresses this. However, I don't like the idea of med bays shutting down when intruders are in t...

Re: Need Your Opinion

I don't get why you're clearly soliciting opinions of your own videos as though they weren't yours. You've posted the others on these forums already, after all.

Re: What an end

Eh, you could sacrifice one of your crew to finish it off. Level 1 teleporter is good enough for rock and crystal boarders to deal system damage and survive to teleport back. Losing a crew member is bad, but it beats a stalemate... I have to ask, though... four missile weapons? That's some seriousl...

Re: Advanced Players: How are you beating normal?

I'm curious to see if other people follow my behavior. 1. I always upgrade my shields as soon as I get 50 scrap. I find that with two shields, around 60-70% of my sector 1 and 2 battles are ones that I can take power off my engines (or oxygen, to keep some power on my engines for avoiding missiles)...

Re: Oh god I am so pissed!!

Yeah I understand trying to take out the weapons, but I was trying to take out the shields first so i could get to the weapons. The problem was that the systems were getting repaired almost as fast as I could damage them. In this play through I never got access to an ion weapon for the systems. The...

Re: My experice with the game

Yesterday I had one of those random boarding encounters at the 2nd jump. It was 6 Mantis against my 3 Zoltan. I died. Absolutely ridiculous. But I like that the game kicks your ass sometimes. The only thing that consistently bothers me is the lack of ways to deal with missiles early game. Those thi...
