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...

Re: FTL Playthrough Illustrated

I lost it when you recruited the Rockman, the conversation with the human was hilarious!

Kinda annoyed that you passed up some good surrender options, though. One of those ships was offering a defense drone, and another would have given you a nice supply of fuel and missiles...

Re: More useful stores?

I'm fine with the shops working as they currently do. FTL is all about improvisation and overcoming varying challenges. I recently beat the game having never visited a shop that sold desirable crew, so my crew at the end was comprised of three zoltan, four engi, and one human. I usually rely on a so...

Re: What is your favourite ship - and why?

Zoltan B. I find shields boring and annoying to pay for, and with the Zoltan B I can put off investing anything in shields until sector 5 or 6. The weapons combo extremely well with each other, and starting with lots of zoltans is fun. The only thing I don't like about the zoltan cruisers is that ra...

Re: Aargh!!

The first boss is the only boss. That's the end of the game. ~1 hour to beat it.

The brilliance of this game comes from how much you replay it. Each ship and layout is a unique experience, and the game has enough randomization of maps and encounters to keep the experience fresh.

Re: Weapon Pre-igniter augmentation should be debuffed?

Do the enemy ever spawn with augmentations? Including this one? If not, I wonder, "Why not?" It'd be nice to see some sneak attacks back -- that aren't just Slugs disabling random systems before the fight. The way I see it, this game has plenty of "screw you" moments, but they'r...

Re: The ultimate pacifism run

Impressive!

Mantis B seems like a great choice of ship for this achievement run. I personally was planning to try it with one of the Zoltan cruisers to see if I could cut down on repair costs, but without a drone system the Mantis B is probably the better choice.
