Agreed, I'm not sure what any of the rant had to do with FTL at all.

Re: No Steam? Put larger warning sticker on GOG option PLZ!

I did not back the game, wasn't even aware. I come from "the street" and happily supports the game as it got so good reviews and stellar (haha) coverage on Rockpapershotgun.com in their FTL diary. AND IT IS GOOD! Love it! So, just sayin: bad buyer's experience being had, and it is a compl...

Re: No Steam? Put larger warning sticker on GOG option PLZ!

This is nothing new. Buying a game from one distribution service very rarely gives you access to any of the others. FTL is pretty unique in the fact that buying it off the main page also gives you both the GOG.com and Steam versions. Go and buy a game off Origin and see if it gives you the Steam ver...

Re: Did the update break asteroid fields?

I believe asteroids are just a statistical occurrence. Sometimes you'll get volleys of them purely by chance, equally, sometimes so will the enemy.

Re: Whining

The skill ceiling in this game is very very low, so the random element is really everything. It's possible to be incompetent at the game, but I don't really think it's possible to be "good." Once you've played half a dozen games or so you've seen 90% of the events and can figure out which...

Re: Enemy ship flees with my mantises on board

The devs comment on it (works as intended) have been posted in another thread. The link to that thread is in the first comment in this very thread. Here it is again: http://www.ftlgame.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=2492 You are aware that "works as intended" is a very very different c...

Re: [Idea] Crew Skill Synergies

Nice concept. I don't necessarily agree with all the choices for synergies, but no better ones immediately spring to mind, so I'll just give this a *thumbs up*.

Re: Whining

Remember this game is about more than just individual fights. If you'd had 4 shields and 50% dodge, you quite possibly would have survived. Why didn't you have 4 shields and 50% dodge? Because you'd spent the scrap you could have on other things previously. Perhaps hull repairs, or maybe something e...

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

Stop whining.
If a battle goes badly, jump out. If it doesn't, you've probably just annihilated an enemy with one shot.

Re: Too Random.

I kinda have an issue with this, since barring a SUPER alpha strike build it seems you just cannot beat him without cloak due to his second form. One of my other boss runs involved ion lockdown(2 with a breach bomb), 2 anti ship drones, and a beam drone and i feel like some other weapon of some sor...
