    watched the video for captains edition and the first fight has a ship firing multiple mini-rockets at you. :neutral_face:

    Yeah, it's definitely harder. The main strategic change I would suggest is that the defence drone is far less absolute protection- missile barrages, cloaked missiles and cloaked mines go straight through a level 1 defence. The mini-rocket drones look scary but only do crew and system damage + breaches (0 hull damage), so not necessarily a major disaster.

    My ship best screen for the kestrel had a vanilla victory at a score of 3900 or so and a CE sector 8 loss at over 5000.

    Still, when you encounter some such nasty combo, the golden rule of suggesting to Chewie that he should punch it works as well as it ever did.

    I don't think I have ever escaped a fight. I either fly through the debris left by their destroyed ship, part ways amicably or die.

    Has anyone tried a full pacifism run?
    I got the achievement for getting to sector 5 without fighting, but I'm sure you could make it all the way to the boss without killing anyone. Beating the boss would be another matter.
    (My definition for a pacifist run; you can shoot all you like, but no killing anyone besides the final boss (including destroying a manned ship))

    I have seen a no upgrade run with mantis B. http://www.twitch.tv/darktwinge/c/3424448 That guy's final duel with the boss with the initial Mantis B systems is awesome.

    I've never tried a pacifism run, but if you're allowed to accept surrenders and destroy automated enemies, that seems doable. If you're not allowed to shoot period, it would be more of a crazy challenge. Maybe something for DarkTwinge XD

    In other news, I just arrived in CE final sector with a pretty strong Vortex B, but one minor issue of still having only the 1 guy. Should be interesting :) There is a scripted event with extra borders as well as the usual teleporting guys in phase 3, so my level 2 doors, level 3 med-bay, system repair drone and anti-personnel drone are going to be used extensively.

    I guess it's pretty hopeless, but I like to play it out if there is some reason for optimism.

    Yes all existing ships have a C deckplan option. I believe all the C deck plans have clone bays instead of med bays although that can be swapped at stores I believe.
