Re: Mind Controlled aliens do not drop corpses?

Apparently that's a vanilla bug. I also discovered that if you mind control a lancer and use it to knock another lancer unconscious, you don't get either corpse. And what is even worse that you cant target unconscious enemies. Only can kill them with explosions and not get the corpse anyway. Like w...

Logically speaking, this should be a bug, and IIRC a vanilla one. And it is very not fun.

Advent siege retaliation is frustrating

Anyone feels the same? Yes, it was ridiculous previously when RNF dropped basically in one spot and you mopped them right when they land. But now it is ridiculous in other way. RNF drops couple screens away in fog of war and even if you sprint first turn you cant engage when they drop, you cant even...

Re: Why is Killzone 2 AP?

I dont think its because of that. Saturation costs only 1 ap and is even stronger. Saturation should cost 2 AP and Killzone 1 AP.

Re: I thought of a new nerf (EVAC)

So you propose that developers waste their precious time on something mundane as EVAC mechanics? I think enough focus was put on it already. Thats up to them to decide, not you and not me. I just shared an idea that I think is good enough and will bring something to the gameplay. I wouldn`t call EV...

I thought of a new nerf (EVAC)

Let EVAC zone stay for only 1-2 turns after it comes up, and then take it down and get it on cooldown. Right now it can be cheesy to throw EVAC at the start or when you blow up concealment. And it actually reduces turns until EVAC arrives for your next throws (or am I just crazy? I can swear it redu...

Re: [Glitch] Pistols not showing up, weapons being switched(?)

So, I've tracked down the problem and it seems reproducible only if you have Overwatch All enabled. I'm not sure what in particular in that mod causes the bug, or what weird interaction between it and LW2 does. Overwatch All is quite old (last updated Feb 2016) and basically the same as my Evac All...

Lets nerf armor shredding

I suggest to nerf armor shredding scaling with weapon tier. And by nerf I mean to completely get rid of. Gunners (for example) with shred strip all armor from sectopod/gatekeeper in 1 their attack (chain shot/rapid fire). Isn`t it kinda op? Whats the point of big armored targets then? Armor shreddin...

Re: What to do about Overwatch?

Maybe don`t allow overwatch if not in combat and not concealed? Maybe it is illogical, but maybe it will be better for the balance? Between logic/realism etc and balance you should always go for balance in games.

Re: xwynns Long War 2 Legend #77 video

Yep, only thing that can F you up are "bad activations". I hope in the XCOM 3 they will either somehow improve pods mechanic or just come up with better idea, so that battles would be fair and challenging. With current system if you are lucky and didn`t have "bad activations" you are just wiping flo...

So I just came up with idea that may be rebalance these missions (hack some stuff etc) to actually be real stealth missions, like intenti...

I dislike the mechanic and think your choices should have permanent consequences. No chance I'm going to lower it in our release versions, but mod to your heart's content. Well I agree with you, but sometimes you don`t know all your variables to make a thoughtful decision. For example I never ever ...

Re: Overwatch Creep and Pod Mechanics

Ok, let`s be honest here. The ONLY difficulty in this game - "BAD ACTIVATIONS". Thats it. I mean the only difficult part in tactical is that you don`t activate too much pods. Really. Nothing else. So you must think not how to fight, but how to NOT fight. Not that it would happen, but I`d like to see...

Re: Ideas for balancing Oscar Mike > Command in rescue missions

Just stopping by to throw my 2 cents. IMHO Oscar Mike is a trash perk overall. To balance it up I`d make it reusable with 3 turns KD, or couple charges but free action. To balance things out for jailbreaks - limit it`s use on civilians. We can`t use ghost grenades on civs, since they "didn`t go to s...
