comment Best ship I've built for general combat couldn't push past the Boss's shields?
@Brilliand: If you have enough scrap to have good weapons + max shields + max engines, you can probably win with most configurations.

I think this may have changed in the most recent version

comment Who is the best fighter?
The Mantis have more tactical options than rockmen. You can kite them much easier while waiting for recharge, you can chase runners, you can win in a working medbay against enemies with greater health. Rockmen have fire synergy, but that's RNG-dependent for the most part

comment How do I get multiple copies of the same portal key?
Not sure why this is downvoted - according to what I've seen people say, putting a key in a capsule means that the game treats it like it is not in your inventory and therefore gives you >0% hack rate.

4th level shields are total overkill. You only really need 3 pips against the boss. I'd have put that into O2, Med, and Engines. Same for pilot/doors/sensors 3. And you probably don't need the reactor fully powered.

comment Tips for killing enemy crew without use of boarding parties
I've asphyxiated crew before with the Torus starting Ion weapon vs a 1-shield ship. They couldn't damage me through my shields, so I set the ion to autofire on their O2. It took a long time, but it was firing fast enough to do about 2 ion hits to O2 for each 1 hit to shields. After a few minutes, the fight ended. I didn't have sensors 2.

comment Why do the high score tables of older arcade games limit your name to three characters?
How is this question answerable from anyone but the game developers? From the FAQ (What kind of questions should I not ask here?) "You should only ask practical, answerable questions based on actual problems that you face. Chatty, open-ended questions diminish the usefulness of our site and push other questions off the front page."
