Re: XCOM 2 expansion + Long War 2: Nothing to announce

I think when there is news, it won't be in the form of "we are working on it", it will be in the form of "Long War 1.6 Released+Changelog (WotC Version)"

Re: Reapers in Long War

Psionics would be adjusted to only exist in the Templar faction, with them having the current Psionic class, and the Templar class. And the capability of having default access to multiple shots per turn would be a part of the skirmishers, with the Skirmisher being an up front low range high mobilit...

Re: Reapers in Long War

I think they should remove shinobis entirely and replace them with reapers, tbh. With all the WotC classes and the LW2 classes, and SPARKs, there will be HEAPS to choose from, many of which overlap Don't you dare removing Shinobi. Reapers should be out. What is next Superman? Sniper? All classes fo...

Re: WotC is literally impossible to lose??

Thanks for all the feedback everyone! How do you guys feel about these changes/suggestions to make the game a bit less trivial with the doom clock? I think XCOM is at it's best when it's not casually drawn out and you get every tech and buff. I understand some of you may disagree though. 1. Get rid ...

Re: WotC is literally impossible to lose??

I hear you. The problem is, once the game becomes impossible to lose, it might as well be an MMO Grind. You will eventually win, no matter what you do.

I dunno.

WotC is literally impossible to lose??

Okay so I have played about 90% of the way through my WotC campaign, and it seems like the game has become so easy as to be broken. Basically, instead of having to actually prioritise things, I simply got the "Sabotage" faction order and the "reduce avatar progress" covert actions, and now the game ...

Re: Reapers in Long War

Whaaa? When you get the "if you kill you dont use stealth" talent they are the death from shadows. They just flank and finish. Nerfing stealth and boosting combat makes them too much like shinobi. I think they should remove shinobis entirely and replace them with reapers, tbh. With all the WotC cla...

Re: Reapers in Long War

Yeah I would reduce their detection range. Their mobility is pretty over the top as well. If I was doing reapers from scratch, I would get rid of the %chance to detect modifier, and instead go with something more skill based, although I really don't know how to make reapers more skillful and less "L...

The other mods need to support it, with a very simple config change. In fact you can even do it yourself if you want your favorite mod to have support, XSkin even comes with instructions on how to do it. I did not know this.

Suggestion: Skin system

So, there are many mods out there which add new weapon/armor variations, and are designed to be used alongside the vanilla weapon/armors with the same stats. Because these items have to duplicate the original items behavior, they often have armor/damage numbers which are wrong, and may not have the ...

Re: WotC LW2 Idea: Sparks

Maybe the Avenger crew gets their USB Drives from the same place the Payday crew gets their drills, and as such can't copy the software between different SPARKs without them constantly breaking? It would make sense for a common level on all sparks though, since it really is just hardware and softwar...

Re: WotC LW2 Idea: Sparks

Yeah I always saw SHIVs as fundamentally different - a one time investment in a tank which will help you out amazingly for a little while (until their effectiveness falls off), without having to sacrifice a Soldier. SPARKs I guess would be more like that if they weren't so damn expensive and weren't...

Re: More precise, = "aimed", overwatch

I'd much rather see a feature where we cold set the minimum required aim for an Overwatch shot to be taken. That way, your guys wouldn't take 2% shots against a distant ayy but might wait for a 45% shot when the alien in front of them moves

Re: XCOM 2 expansion + Long War 2: Nothing to announce

The LW2 highlander is distinct from the community one because the community one didn't exist when we released LW2. We specifically wrote all the LW2 changes in the highlander to be backward-compatible with Vanilla and to not encode any LW2-specific stuff in it. Like I posted on Reddit back around t...

Re: My Long War of the Chosen ideas

Just one quick thing to add. If you guys keep the ability that lets you recruit a random Advent on a mission, I'd like to see that expanded in a few ways. Firstly, they are expendable, so if they die it shouldn't count towards your mission rating. Secondly, maybe keeping them alive could have some b...

Unclear skies - The Avenger defence mission is no longer triggered by a UFO hunter, but by a Chosen reaching full Knowledge about you. Hence this options will have no effect whatsoever. WotC definitely still has UFO Hunts. I was chased by one just yesterday but luckily got away. Cyber Warfare - Thi...

Second Wave Options

So, with the release of WotC, I think one thing nobody has really talked about on here is the addition of second wave options in the base game. As much as I like those features, the second wave options in vanilla seem to be very boring. Here are some ideas I had for Second Wave options. I went a lit...

Re: My Long War of the Chosen ideas

Fatigue a soldier gains in a mission isn't really random but there's a lot of factors, each factor is capped at inflicting at max 33% of your max will in fatigue, though. There's simply finding a new pod. There's taking damage. There's suffering any kind of status. (even non-damaging ones) Chosen w...

Do I understand right that this community highlander is some sort of compatibility tool for the most used mods? I still don't fully understand what it does.
