Damn, nicely done. Never been a fan of the ion cannons (never been able to get a high ranked one), but might have to have another look at them. Halberd laser is brilliant at just tearing a ship apart when its without shields

Also, looking at the time of your post, we might have another addict on our hands :P

Seriously though, it's always "Just one more game!"

I need to stop introducing people to this game. They always unlock more ships / get further :P

Stalemated the Flagship, they can't kill me, but i don't have the firepower to get through its shields, and I'm out of missiles

Yeah thats why ion cannons are great hal, youll never getto a stage where you cant get through their shields, though they are a bit power hungry

And yeah it is kinda addictive, I just cant bring myself to stop mid game!

The Kestrel (Mission 1, Episode 2)

Watch in 1080p!

Things rapidly escalate into violence and despair.

Off camera, Got onto the final boss again. Things went great in phase 1. Phase 2 would probably gone better if i'd murdered more crew in phase 1. The surviving 5 crew were all critical, but healed to full in phase 2, meaning i couldnt destroy the medbay, shields, teleporter or drone bay fast enough, and i was forced to retreat. And ofc, before i could re-enter the fight, the death star got in range. Fucking stupid mechanic.

I had an ion cannon on that stalemate run grim, its part of the reason I couldn't destroy the flagship, cause it would disable 2 layers of shields (4 reactor points), but didn't have enough lasers to blast through the rest and do damage :evil: . If I'd have traded it out for a higher tier burst laser i might have been alright. Alternatively, MOAR MISSILES!!!
