random flagship

double hull missile + breach missile + layout means I can't board them + cloaking in phase 3
Had a ship in Sector one and died somehow... The way the beacons were set up I jumped to a lone beacon right at the start with the Engi A. I ended up dieing very quick.
Made it to sector 5 with the Krestel, died somehow, made it to sector 3, died from a pirate because I was watching Netflix and didn't have auto-fire on.
Had a Vulcan on autofire on my Mantis B. Was planning on only firing one shot to disable the medbay but it ended firing 3 which killed my entire boarding crew.

(Ouch! That was painful to read)
A breach missile hitting a room with 6 Zoltan in it (2 were walking through it) and killing them all.
Running on easy mode. 1 System away from home-run. Run into a Pirate Ship, 3 Shield, 4-5 Man crew. Seriously outgunned. Die. Happened to me 6 times in a row. Cool Easy Mode. OH Happens always in a Green-Zone, controlled by a faction... cool find the strongest pirates there okay.
Lanius B, normal, about to die, 3 health left on the final phase of the flagship, fired 3 shots, 1 misses.

the game cheats you, no money shops everywhere, good weapons you are not able to get a simple hit , if you have a good ship you go out of fuel. This is not procedural this is coded to cheat the player.

The game is definitely rigged.

It has massively ahead of its time AI that can detect just from someone's keyboard input whether they're a scrub who needs to git gud.

This Slug B hard mode run which turned out to be the "How Federation C should have been like"
Hugely reliant on suicide boarding on a massive scale sending over two rocks, a lanius, a slug and a mantis, even blasting the two Flak 1s at them regardless of collateral damage.

I just needed two good volleys to win.
The bad luck I had was mind control affecting a random rebel instead of snapping out the lanius who then repaired the shields like twice, oh and a nearby store got taken over so I lost the five hull points I could have repaired.
Kastrel A. After a couple bad runs I finally got a good boarding setup. Last beacon before the flagship sector. My rockmen boarding party (which was with me since sector 2) was on the other ship. It was an easy victory. Finally got the ship down to 3 hull and no shields and I fired the burst laser. Forgot about my boarders. Lost them all . Found 2 mantis crew as a replacement boarding party in a shop in the last sector. Did the same thing again against a random rebel ship. R.I.P.

Heading into sector 8 with Rock type A, finally getting a good run with rock ships. Artemis, Burst Laser II, Halberd Beam, 4 shields and like 6 engines with crew almost all maxed out. In trying to catch up to the flagship before I insta-lose, I encounter a rebel ship - they teleport a few guys on my ship and my crew who hasn't had to fight before is doing their best... its not going well so i jump out of there. Next ship ALSO teleports guys onto my ship and i'm just totally ♥♥♥♥ed now, they've killed two crew already and destroyed the door system, so i'm like ♥♥♥♥ it lets run again but of course i accidentally jump to the flagship, the guys onboard kill the rest of my crew as the flagship hacks my oxygen and everyone dies. Now I remember why I stopped playing this game for over a year. And this was all on easy difficulty! The rock ship is still my least favorite
lol, my worst one was kestral a, not sure which sector, i went to go to a quest beacon (mantis camp) and lost some health, then realised i was in a complete dead end and the rebels had trapped me. so i fought through like 5 beacons to the exit, escaped with 1 health, jumped through half the next sector without finding any shops and then finnaly died because i had no missles left
