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

I'd love that, and I expect there to probably be a XCOM 2 Complete Edition by then, but yeah, I think LWoTC would be out in 2018.

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

I'm all for discussion, I just had a gripe with you judging people for their choice not to buy the expansion. Felt more like "utter intolerance" for me making a simple observation. In fact after rereading everything since I joined the discussion you seem to be the only one taking [serious] offense ...

Giving Avatars more abilities, mostly from EU

TK Field, Mindfray, Psi Drain, Psychokinetic Strike, and the Templar's Deflect/Reflect skills. How difficult would it be to give Avatars these, because I feel underwhelmed by them.

Re: How would you want the Skirmisher adapted for LW2?

My 2 cents: I'm not even sure LW even needs to have the new "hero" classes at all. They honestly seem to have been lifted from the LW2 class list and changed up just to avoid being accused of plagiarism. First, run this all through the Covert Ops Ring and the mission system there. Next, where the o...

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

I'm most excited at how they'll handle The Chosen and the factions. Being able to have all three faction soldiers is overkill, and The Chosen could use some buffing, particularly in the AI department. I wrote up a post on here/Reddit about making them more of a threat, nothing so far. The Covert Act...

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

One could argue that DLC and WoTC are thought of as two separate things. There might very well be overlap with WoTC.

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

It means Pavonis has/had interest in doing something additional. Whether discussions continued or were productive or some work started isn't known. Pavonis is a small and will likely keep their options open even if negotiations with 2K haven't been promising so far. Jake Solomon wants there to be a...

Giving Mutons and Berserkers Intimidate and Bull Rush from EU

Berserkers seem a lot less threatening without these two abilities. I think giving Mutons Intimidate again might be appropriate, though if you're playing LW, maybe restrict it to M2 and M3 ones? I'd love to do this myself, but I'm still very much new when it comes to modding.

I gotta say I agree with all the positive reviews, you guys did a really good job so far and I can't go back to vanilla. I agree to a certain extent. Though I wouldn't say no to a properly balanced dynamic war version. Ironically, the Long part is my least favorite part of Long War :D. Of course, m...

Re: Infinite Reinforcements?

Like Berserkers and Chryssalid Soliders, or squads of elite ADVENT.

Can we do that? Introduce reinforcements above the current force level? If we could, can we have it scale throughout the campaign?
