How did the Chruul Spire invasion go for you?
« on: June 12, 2016, 05:47:11 PM »
I ask because it was unmitigated disaster for me T_T

Took my three best officers in, all level 6-7, and didn't even manage to kill one of the Chruul monsters before they wiped me out. How'd you do? Did you have a specific ground based officer group for that mission? What tactics did you use?

I'm curious, because I clearly have a lot to learn in this regard :p

The difficulty has been ramped way up. I took 3 level 10 officers in, and was unable to win. It is not quite balanced yet.

I entered stasis, so I'm probably better off than most. I saved and quit when the Spire showed up. (A portal opened at the same time, so I'm waiting for the prognosis on Zulf Maddox's memory before I return and wait for the Chruul Lab constructors to finish.) In the meantime, I started another playthrough, and it's been going quite well so far. I haven't had any 8HP-from-losing-to-leechers scenarios this time (yet).
Celebrate with me! I finally hit Sentinel!

To the folks who failed. Have any of you tried using the Chruul BioLab Tech? THat will make your crew able to survive in the Chruul Spire environment. I used it and had no problems!

Is it possible to get in without that Biolab tech? I thought it was a requirement. I've barely had trouble with the space guards, but I have now fought about four batches of ground gaurds. I beat the first one because my science officer stayed at Critical Condition for quite some time. Then I lost her on the second spire. Then I lost my tactical when I reverted. Then I finally won without losing anyone vital. I'm seriously rethinking my choice to wait until around day 300 to attack New Terra. ::)

You'll need the Tech to survive and make the fight much easier. Trust me. Also you might want to wait until your fleet is at least at level 7-8 to fight the New Terra event. It's just the serious!

If my experience is the "much easier," I don't stand a chance without the tech. I already did wait until close to day 300 to take on New Terra, by which point I had at least two Tier 3 ships, if not all three.
