👨🏫️🚢 Learning to get to the Flagship – FTL: Faster than Light
So I’ve read up some tips and what should I say? Learning helps you get better at games too 😀 This time we finally get back to the Flagship! Can we beat it this time? I do hope so! Or its going to be more studying 😱
🔫🗑️ First time getting Flak – FTL: Faster than Light
Normally we get shot by Flak and its really annoying 😀 Three shots with trash that splashes against our Shield and Systems. Although not precise its a high amount of damage. BUT this time we are shooting with space trash! 😀
🚁👍 Defence Drones are good – FTL: Faster than Light
A Defence Drone will combat incoming Missiles on Level 1 and on Level 2 even incoming Shots. Same for Asteroids. That is really really helpful if you want to save Scrap. Deploying the Defense Drone is way more cost-effective than repairing. So thumbs up for Defense Drones!
🚨🌫️ Red-Tail for the first time – FTL: Faster than Light
Yeah, so the Red-Tail or KestrelB is a big Pew Pew Ship from the start 😀 You start with 4! Basic Lasers! So if you coordinate them you can quickly push through shields. That is a major benefit right from the start. On the other side, these basic lasers do consume a lot of power. So prioritization needs to be done. This will be interesting :3
🗿🤕 Asteroid Fields are bad – FTL: Faster than Light
You can encounter Asteroid Fields all over the map. Normally its not a problem. But if you stay to long in an Asteroid Field sometime a Meteorite will crash into your Ship. If you have enough Shield that is fine, but if your Shield is done, then your Systems get hit. So be careful out there!
⛽🤖 So many Drones but no Fuel – FTL: Faster than Light
Do you know what happens if you have no fuel? Yes, you end up as a distress beacon 😀 Will Karma hunt you? Or have you been nice and helped enough people? Looks like I was not nice enough 😀
👨💻️🤖 Hacking and Drones on Engi A – FTL: Faster than Light
Hacking is a wonderful system. You can disable shields or weapons for some seconds and that’s just great. If you hit a weapon, they are not shooting back. If you hit the shield and then attack weapons, there is also no shooting back anymore 😀 you can also disable shield and shoot shields and then they won’t have any Defense anymore. Just wonderful.
🔧👤 Kestrel vs Lanius – FTL: Faster than Light
Ok back to the Kestrel A. Run did go really well. We get Hacking and Mind Control. Then we do get Cloning and Teleporting. Then we get some Mantis as Boarders, so really really good. BUT then we meet the Lanius. A race of metal-bodied Oxygen snatching Bast****…. they are tough and hard to kill and their Ships are so good. Would really like to switch places 😀 but oh well…
😀🤕 Being the nice one is hard – FTL: Faster than Light
First time trying the Stealth Cruiser. So the main mechanic would be cloaking and with that evading damage. But the cloak time is so short. So we are trying to buy Shields asap. It’s a totally different style to play FTL. Also, I don’t like to be the bad guy, so if someone asks for help, then let’s help em 😀 Does that work out? We will see. Any tips are appreciated 🙂
👾🛸 First Time reaching the Flagship – FTL: Faster than Light
Yeehaw! Our first time reaching the Flagship and that with the Engi B Drone Ship 😀 We got more Shield removal with the Ions and a great Halberd Beam as our Damage Source. But still the Flagship is a tough nut to crack. Many phases and different mechanics to go through. Without knowing what comes, its really hard to prepare.
