@!#?@! Black hole, normal is pretty much impossible

Post by Cap'n Crusty » Sat May 18, 2013 2:05 pm

Played through the small ship. Now I've made it through to the last mission on the 2nd ship. The Dreadnaught fires much faster than I can generate any kind of tokens. My ship is flooded with boarders. Even when I manage to destroy the ship, the boarders slay half my crew before I can clear them out. After that I'm pretty much toast when the second part of the battle gets going. How the hell do you beat it?

Alternate the dodge and shield boost to minimalize invaders.

Normal is pretty easy once you get the hang of it.

Zavier's advice is good, I'd add that you should take a bit of care with how you arrange your crew and recognize when it would be better to abandon one particular room and it's function to ensure that you can more effectively deal with invaders.

When all else fails, pile everybody into one of your weapons rooms and hope for the best ;)

Thanks for being a jerk about it though.

To those offering legitimate advise, my gratitude. I breezed through the game to this point. I have alternated the shield and dodge this mission as others, but they just don't keep up. I'll give the machine gun room blockade a try when things start falling apart. More space in there than in my torpedo room.

I'm sorry that some people consider this level impossible but I managed to beat the entire game from easy to normal to hard to black hole without losing a single player. By the end of it all my crew were level 30 on all skill trees. So don't tell me it's impossible because now they nerfed it and so more people will be joining what used to be an elite rank of players. Like any hardcore game if you can't beat it the first time, FARM! Or you can bitch to the devs if you want to lessen the satisfaction of beating this incredible game.

The final mission used to have 4 ships and there was no ng+ or random missions, so don't talk about nerfs ;). The fire rate was a bug and not intended...

Most people will not beat the last difficulty either way. If the hull breach exploit is fixed, less then one percent will do it.

the funny thing is that i could have handled four enemy ships. as long as you destroy the enemy ship and leave a straggler enemy aboard your ship, you can repair and generate all your tokens again. this is a great strategy for the last mission BTW. and id like to apologise if i came off too abrasive. i was frustrated here is a picture of a cute furry animal called a Stoat as an apology.
