Re: Future of shinobi?

I'm not convinced the new classes NEED to be hero classes when brought over to LW2. Assuming they don't keep their class-specific weapons (to save Pavonis making more weapon models), just let the player recruit as many as they want (given adequate resources). 4 simultaneously active squads is about...

Re: My Long War of the Chosen ideas

I think that the fatigue system is better than the current infiltration system. Infiltration should work like the shadow ability of the reaper. Every character starts concealed and every turn there is a chance that a character is revealed: - Melee attack if it kills the target, pistol attack, smg at...

1.5 release date

Will 1.5 be released this week or next week? I ask, because i would like to finish another LW2 campaign before the add-on will be released.

Re: Painful Skill Tree Changes

Sting is auto-pick if you go Support Gren, but doesn't help Boomer or Fire builds. BB is getting buffed a smidge next build, but even that aside, Chain Shot's not bad to dip and can give some burst damage. I think that Boosted Cores and Biggest Booms will be still too weak in 1.5, because the damag...

Fleche against Sectoids

It seems that Fleche inflicts more damage against Sectoids in 1.3, because in two different missions the distance between the Shinobi and his targets was roughly the same, but he inflicted 6 - 8 against other targets and 8 - 10 against the Sectoids.

Re: Thoughts on the 1.3 changes

Specifically, if we switch out the location of the perks. Swap Squaddie Squadsight with Tech Sergeant Conceal, for example. Sharpshooters keep their aim bonuses which thematically means they still count as marksmen, but with any sort of weapon. Conceal or Phantom as the squaddie perk kind of overla...

Re: An absurd ending...

I do agree that vigilance is a bit too hidden at the moment. It's not a stat that should be showed directly like strength as this would make breaking the game far too easy. I know some have commented that it should be simply shown like strength, and I thought this at first too. Then I learned how i...

Re: Making the war longer

Glad somebody noticed that. The timer increases are a significant change, it gives you a more freedom to engage in a firefight for a few turns and still beat the objective. The reinf timer only starts ticking at the start on missions with a fixed evac. On others it's upon an alien going into red al...

Re: Thoughts on the 1.3 changes

I can't agree more. As a MSgt perk it [edit: Conceal] might even be completely cooldown based for me. It was moved to MSgt not because it was too strong in combat but because it was abused in stealth missions but the result is that now, as a MSgt perk the only reason to justify it is for that steal...

Shinobi: Blademaster should increase the damage by 1 and the critical chance by 10 % to make the perk useful early, mid and late game. Conceal should have 2 charges and a cooldown of 3 turns that starts when the character breaks concealment or when he activates the perk to make it an interesting MSG...

Re: Campaign Feedback from Playthrough

LW2 is great in that it forces you to have depth of roster, it’s not enough to have A and B teams, but C and D as well. One of the challenges is how to train up your C and D teams. Later in the game this gets harder because stealthing missions begins to fall off as the aliens get really powerful. I...
