    Thanks. Indeed, as you can see from the screenshot that Vulcan projectile is going to hit his piloting and it did indeed before the powersurge went off. Next up is that Swallow thing that I've lost around 30 games in already. I'll get it through though, eventually.

    Oh, Yeah. Augmentations were Hull Repair Arm bought in the final sector, I suppose if it wasn't for that augment the Red Tail would have lost.

    Great :-) Those close wins are the most fun to me! Fingers are crossed for your Swallow runs!

    Close call wins? What's that?

    And yes, I might be a little bit retarded

    On a related thought, I recently screwed up my decent stats on the ipad trying Stealth B. It was a monstrously chancy ship before and on hard in AE it sucks soooo much. I think I've died about 20 times with it before giving up and most of these happened in the first couple of sectors :/

    Just achieved my first win with the Torus :-) After a whole lot of failed attemps, I decide to record one run... don't know why, but somehow that greatly increases my survivability in difficult games... and indeed that run ended up successful! Gonna upload it on youtube during the next days.

    e: And here is sector 1:

    Stealth B is my favourite Not chancy at all if you play it right! It's enjoyably tough on Hard in AE.

    I see now what you mean about close runs. Just had the most epic conclusion to the freshly unlocked Shivan.

    I had only Mind Control as extra system and spent my last tiny bits of scrap for measly 3 more % of dodge and it saved my bacon.

    First stage - my shields get hacked and all hell breaks loose as they are followed by the nastiest hits. However, thanks to recently acquired second flak 1 (exchanged for heavy laser 2) I am able to slaughter cloak and shields very quick. I lost slightly less than half of my hull in this one.

    Second stage - boarding drone lands into shields (which are guarded by measly Zoltan & Engi duo) followed by a rocket later. I manage to disable drone control quick enough to avoid complete wreckage but eat a full 4-room flagship beam for 8 damage. Barely holding I finish the flagship off (hull down to about 7).

    Stage 3 - I am boarded by pmultiple guys, my shield catch fire and I jump away to a single safe beacon nearby right before the power surge hits me straight in the face. I kill off the guys but lose one more point as shield get completely wrecked by the fires. Down to about 5 hull points.

    I go back without any hopes of success. Theres is only one guy left to board me, who gets killed by weapons dude, my mind control keeps my guys from going insane. All what's left is to dodge a couple of power surges and missile volleys. I cheered my guys and they freaking pulled it off. The fucking ship itself was fighting for the victory of the Federation, as I evaded 3 (!) points of damage thanks to Rock Plating. It was fascinating, it was absolutely surreal.

    Just won with the Tetragon, so all three Kestral Ships and all three Engi ships are now done. Looking forward to finally fly something else but those damn donuts :-)

    Holy cow, what a horrible piece of scrap is the Fregatidae?! So much looking forward to score a lucky win and never play that ship again x-D

    e: Three runs, three deaths in sector one x-) Man, I need some kind of a strategy!

    e: And fiiiiinally won with that ship! Yesyesyesyes! But that was one lucky run. After a handful of jumps in sector one I thought about rage-quitting because I was already down below 1/3 hull, luckily I continued to do my best :-) Got a charge laser and a lucky repair event few jumps later, so I was back in action. In sector two I managed to buy a medbay to replace that crappy clonebay, later I got myself two burst lasers mk1 for alot more firepower. Also got a second mantis to complete my boarding crew. Still this was one hellride untill the very end. In sector 7 I was down to one singe hull point for three or four jumps without any means to counter missiles except for my dodge value, then I finally found a shop. In the end I was armed with two flak mk1s and a helbard beam, as well as to recharge boosters and a pre-ignitor... that was one deadly arsenal! But I really needed it, especially against boss phase two. I stupidly lost my boarding mantises against phase one, so I was in quite some trouble when the boarding drone got straight into my pilot bay... the only chance was to win that fight really quick. However, now I am extreeeemely happy that I am done with that ship and very much looking forward to fly somehting else :-)
