Re: LW2 Strategic Layer: Managing Strength and Vigilance

That's a good question that seems to me to be situational. If you were to do no other missions and just fish for the Jailbreak it could be worth it. The RNG here is that you don't know how many rebels vs rookies you might get in either scenario. With the recruit option you know two things, your not...

Re: Pistols (underused) and AWC

An ability should be nerfed once it makes other abilities or opening moves infererior. I disagree. Or at least, that is not the only reason for a change. An ability should be nerfed if it is so powerful, it throws the balance of the game off. That being said, I don't think faceoff desperately needs...

Re: Pistols (underused) and AWC

I think with the right tweeks to amo for pistols, they could easily be balanced. Personally, I would love to see a higher damage on pistols, but also a short weapon range and either low amo or a x-shots maximum per round. Multiple pistol classes would be cool, too. Well, I guess there is mods for th...

Re: Less than 1 or 2 Days for Infiltration(s).. SOLUTION.

Also, why 1 on supply? Isn't that a complete waste? True.. but it's most likely happening when my Havens have 10+ Rebels. I don't understand. If you get missions on too short timers, why waste a whole rebel then? put him on intel. you get suplies from corpses and liberated regions? Yet, the trick w...

Re: LW2 Strategic Layer: Managing Strength and Vigilance

Thanks for the info. Hm, I probably leave the guys on their job then and only switch the avenger. The avenger only gives intel, right? If I have 4 Rebels, it means another Rebel every 6-7 days (depending on liason). It would take about 20 days to go up to 8, if all the new ones got to recruit as wel...

Re: Rebel jobs change, progress lost?

As I was told, every change in the job means the loss of a day, so you need to evaluate in wich point of GOp progress you caught the mission. I mean if the GOp is going to respawn in your Intel region in less than 2 days it doesn't worth to lose 12 days*rebel*job plus 6hours avenger, but if you cau...

Re: Pistols (underused) and AWC

it's not abnormal for one soldier's pistol perks to be dealing 45 damage in a turn as you enter the latter stages of the game, and earlier on in the game abilities like lightning hands, clutch shot, and fanfire are extremely strong. You say that like 45 damage over multiple shots is impressive. Kee...

Re: Is the 'Beagle maneuver' still cheap?

IMO, famethrower opening beats this 9 times out of 10. You can very often damage 5-8 enemies and have at least half of them burning, thus rendering them useless for 2 turns. Overwatch is too unreliable, unless you build for it. But who has a whole squad built for overwatch? My preferred way is to ha...

Re: Avatar progress to fast?

You can increase the maximum avatar pips in the ini files. I don't know where, but it was explained in this forum somewhere.
Personally, I don't thinkit is too fast.
Focus on liberating a region, then expand. Meaning, everyone on intel or recruit until a few months in the game.

I don't have that much time to play (sad! total disaster!), so I don't want to restart my whole campaign after 1.3 gets released. I understand, I technically won't have to, but will 1.3 make certein builds/squads useless? For example, I am building 2-3 2 man squads for stealthy missions. As I heard,...
