I don't know why but i've been absolutely obsessed with this game after playing it for the second time yesterday

First time I played because my internet was down and it was the only offline thing I had and I didn't really care much for it

Anyone else think this game is really good?
>>
Yeah, most people seem to think it's a good game.
>>
Everyone think's it's really good, because it's really good.
>>
hit chance only luck based combat ruins it
>>
>>323019291
which gets me to..
is there any mod out yet which would reduce or totally remove the broken hit chance from the game ?
because then it would be playable and a pretty good game
>>
>>323019993
Dunno about that, but there's ships which have their engines, cockpit or both stripped from them in Captain's Edition essentially removing their ability to dodge.
So it's possible.
>>
>>323019291
>>323019993
beam weapons never miss though

>>323020295
yeah I know, and ?

I like it!
>>
>>323020394
and if you think the possibility of missing means the game is broken you're showing how new you are to the game (I'm guessing less than 2 hours in your first run)

because conversely enemies can also miss their shots (unless beams etc.) and you can increase your own evade chance by upgrading and powering engines and bridge, training personnel and using cloak

trust me, keep playing, you'll git gud eventually
>>
>>323017526

Yes. Youre a few years late on the constant ftl threads though lad
>>
>>323020745
Which ship anon?
>>
>>323020851
I played it for a while and I know about the mechanics the game has
as I said .. its literally only about luck (the combat) and since you dont know what weapons you come across, you cant go "only beams"
>>
>>323022323
Nor will they pierce any shields, beams are secondary and tetriary weapons behind lasers > missiles/ion >...
>>
>>323022451
Come on man, even the game tells you 1 shield bubble blocks 1 damage from beams.
>>
Post your best 4 loadout anon
>Burst laser 2
>Burst laser 2
>Firebomb
>Heavy laser
>>
>>323017526

errr... is there any way to repair your vessel hull?
>>
>>323022590
Tldr 2 shields block all beams except for that one really expensive 4 power 3dmg/room beam .. Useless past the first zone
>>
>>323017526
lurk moar
>>
if the hit chance had some cap around 10% or something then it would be alright

but most of the late games you come across 60% + miss chance on everything including you .. and thats just garbage gameplay-wise

the game has a nice concept and its made pretty well.. but with the ruined combat its only just another overhyped average game

>>323022853
So you admit they pierce shields?

>>
>>323023147
Yeah there are exceptions
>>
>>323023113
Easy with advanced on is hard enough for my tastes, maybe normal and hard without that even more rng inducing mode on

I don't play much with 4 weapon slot ships.

Anybody ever take the risk with that space spider event? Seems like every time I do it, I just fail and lose a crew member

The best part of FTL is naming your crew after some kind of theme, and having them survive.

>The rapid fire ion gun, can't remember the name
>The extra long powerful beam
>Maybe throw in a cheap drone for funsies

Take the shields down then slice and dice. 60% of the time, it works, every time.

No it's shit, why would you ever waste your time on a game like this?
>>
>>323023620
I stopped taking the risk when I don't have a clone bay. It's not worth the reward to lose a trained crewmen or lose crewmen at all if you don't have a full roster.
>>
>>323023620
>>323023990
Having a boarding drone gives you a blue option too.
>>
>>323023990
>>323023620

You also have blue choice when you have a drone bay and the anti-personell drone.

Aim at the engines, faggot.
