the only thing i aim for regardless of squad is just look at the cheapest weapon upgrade. 2 cores for 1=>2 damage is incredible on the basic ranged unit, for example. +mech reactor skills let you hit these faster

health/grid def are stupid because a ton of objectives rely on you not taking damage and defense is a worse offense and all that rot

zenith guard is the worst thing i've ever seen

apparently if you freeze a building during a "break 5 buildings out of the ice" objective, it decrements that building from the score >:[

rusting hulks is still 1000% my favorite team and perhaps the strongest i played

it was absolutely awful in the first couple of levels, but i rushed the electric storm upgrade to 2 and they quickly became formidable. the anti-web+smoke pilot on the plane probably made a huge impact too, but eventually you can just drop smoke everywhere and watch things die.

i think you can only get 1 time pod on the the first two islands you complete, and max two on the others? i'm not sure--just a guess based on my shitty knowledge of coding, and a lot of personal experience

relevant bit:
Code: Select all
function getPodList(sector)
   
   local podCount = 1
   if sector == 1 then podCount = 1 end
   if sector == 2 then podCount = 2 end
   if sector == 3 then podCount = 2 end
   
   pods = {}
   
   GAME.PodDeck = GAME.PodDeck or {}
   
   if #GAME.PodDeck == 0 then
       createPodDeck()
   end
   
   for i = 1, podCount do
      pods[#pods+1] = CreateEffect(random_removal(GAME.PodDeck))
   end
   
   return pods
end

i think poddeck generally refers to the place that holds your pilots, weapons, and such, but not sure

boy i wish i had the anti-web/smoke pilot for this run. i have maneuverable, armored, and preemptive strike. the + damage on smoke is nutso, as-is being able to jump two with the plane, but at this point my own smoke is the only difficult thing about turns 4 and 5

For those who were interested in FTL as well, there's a promotion until March 6th that gives you FTL for free when you buy Into the Breach (gog). Can't beat two amazing games for only $15!

important information that i dont think is ever conveyed: if a volcano hits a frozen square, it turns that square into a flaming square, NOT a lava square!!

judoka are extremely more fun than blitz or zenith. probably weaker than rusting hulk or rift walkers, especially for noob ass
