Re: AWC Balance

I reveal the perks too.

It's SO much more fun being able to see what's coming up at higher levels, because that's where the perks start to get really interesting.

Re: [suggestion] Change dessign of the smoke grenade.

I make tons of mistakes.

I have never in over 200 hours of LW2 made this mistake.

Re: Psi Ops still suck?

Would be cool if Psi Ops used will in place of Aim for their chance to hit. You mean with conventional weapon? Let the Force guide you? Yeah. Might add some flavour. Also thinking it would be cool to have the Psi Lab basically be a duplicate of the AWC but with special Psi perks where a ton of the ...

Re: Wet Work Balance

I would advocate deleting it from the game.

It's one of those things which will either be a trap or a must-take depending on balance.

Right now it's obviously a complete waste.

Re: Are Flashbangs overpowered

flashbangs are pretty much the only early game way to turn off alien abilities. Sneks will tongue-grab kill a soldier from full cover if uncontrolled. Stun lancers will race across the map to take out one of your guys if uncontrolled. Advent Rockteers will set fire to half your squad if uncontrolle...

Re: Is there any way to prevent the loss of attached PCSs?

In the meantime I'd compensate yourself with some free PCSs

AddItem EpicPCSConditioning 1

Speed, Conditioning, Focus, Perception, Agility
Common (Normal), Rare (Advanced), Epic (Superior)

Could the devs fill us in on what console command you would use for the new LW2 PCSs?

Re: Early missions with short timers, a failing strategy

Missions are always present, whether you know about them or not. Right, but one mission existing prevents a duplicate from spawning concurrently, which means if you discover a mission you really want with a very short timer, it's optimal to send a rookie in there to instantly evac and fail the miss...

Re: Early missions with short timers, a failing strategy

Incidentally - as there's an advantage to be gained from doing that - we need a way to get missions off the map without sending a single rookie who pops the flare and leaves. It's a stupid byproduct of the design and presumably not intentional, since it's very boring and you have to sit through two ...

Re: Do anybody else think the retraining time is too high?

It's way too high, I also modded the time but down to 1 day per rank. And I still only did it twice in my most recent campaign. I think it might be more effort to code than it's worth, but it would be cool if you send them for retraining, and choose which perks to free up, then maybe it takes 1 day ...

Re: Feedback: The separate rolls for Dodge and Crit make the game a terrible mess

I disagree that it's a mess, but it would be good to see an extra %age or two on the fire pane. %chance for each damage number maybe.

like a little line which goes "50% 0 ; 10% 2 ; 30% 3-5 ; 10% 8"

I find this annoying as well. Crude replacement in the meantime is to use site:pavonisinteractive.com and then your search terms in google

I'm considering modding Psi Ops to have a built in squad infiltration weight reduction as part of their basic perk.
