I really wish there was a way to compare your stats to other people. I know my W/L ratio is laughably bad, but I'm mostly curious as to what everyone's session/crew records are.

I would say that a lot of my games played have ended up in ragequits or just not thinking the game was worth continuing and closing the window. So that would shave like, 50 games off. Still bad.

I have the greatest of respect for your prowess, you're clearly an expert. :^) But I suspect your win ratio would be even higher if you found ways to delay and grind more in each sector, and/or if you bought more Scrap Recovery Arms. I don't win every game with an SRA, but I suspect I win them a lot more frequently.
I'll often just throw a game out and restart if I get a really bad first sector (or a really bad first few beacons, even) because I find the first few sectors are very influential as far as the rest of the game goes and you lose pretty much nothing time-wise.
Also all of my stats got zapped after I got tired of grinding for the Crystal ships and cheated them in, some of this should be much higher and my W/L ratio should be a good deal worse.
Can I interest you in a...side mission?

Another time, I was going for my Pacifism achievement. I got it, only to be left with zero weapons, zero attack drones, and few improvements to my ship at all. I didn't quit that one either. I played around to see if I could get a weapon by luck. With my last fuel, I jumped in to a distress signal, only to find an ambush. It was ludicrous how much trouble I was in! No weapons, drones, or fuel. I just sat there and watched him take me apart...... until he jumped away!?! He left me with 1 hull HP and most of my systems destroyed, including medbay and O2! I had to LOL at that. I made a half-hearted attempt to recover. I was able to fully repair my ship, and got some fuel from a "Wait" event, but I died shortly thereafter (still no weapons).
So I'm sure I have more play time per game than the average player. Not sure that helps me at all.
As for how my stats are so high, I was hunting the crystal ship for a while with Rock A/B. If it wasn't a sector where I could find part of the quest, I would engage in as much combat as possible. I would take every ship alive as often as possible, which also meant I spent a lot of time dodging shots and killing crew. I also let the exit beacon be taken if I can gain more beacons by doing so, and if I'm powerful enough, I'll even destroy the rebel in a held beacon. (If I think I can get out of it unscathed and only using spare consumables, it's worth it to kill that ship just to get the 1 fuel.)
