Re: Heat ammo not really doing anything ?

The OP was about Goliath's build not about "best MEC class" :) Hence my sharing of the view. I would not argue on advantages of offensive classes over the defensive ones. It is a matter of play-style after all. Perk trees are fully configurable - I have even seen a tool on nexusmods (recent release)...

Re: Heat ammo not really doing anything ?

Hmm, I remember my Goliaths regularly tanking 5-6 DR with their absorbtion field, damage control and shock-absorbent armor. And with repair servos and engineer with arc thrower (as support) they used to come back from numerous mission barely scratched. Truly - their performance is much better than w...

Re: Heat ammo not really doing anything ?

HEAT is applied AFTER DR. So when out of initial 15 you get 5 after 10 DR, then HEAT is applied only to this 5, not to initial 15. I used to always build Goliath full-tank build. Marvelous performance (until a bunch of Muton Elites with HEAT ammo show up). If you feel "cheated" by mechanics or descr...

Simply Ctrl-F a piece of text from description which you can see in-game in XComGame.int and XComStrategyGame.int. THERE ARE NO HARDCODED DESCRIPTIONS. All localizable descriptions are in above files. There is no "Confers 2" so you must have written it from memory :D Oh, if you are playing a localiz...

Re: Huh?

Meld yield is proportional to alien resources stat. The better they do, the more Meld you get (to help you catch up). You can notice how Meld canisters give more at start of month and less at the end (if you were doing well during the month thus decreasing alien resources).

Re: Questions about training rookies and psi abilities in xcom long war ?

Rookies - fire them/forget. Or quickly pick them on small UFO missions 3 at a time (flashbangs, shotguns and do the 'koabunga' - with some medic + HEAT gunner + officer to support). In December you should be getting experienced soldiers from Funding Council rewards/requests. I remember always having...

Re: Any way to figure out which enemies have grenades?

Alien grenadiers are: Mutons, Heavy Floaters, Cyberdisks. Regular floaters get grenades after a certain alien research threshold. That's all. Also: grenades are attached to pawn's belt - visually (you will need to zoom probably to notice them). At least for soldiers and Exalt. Never looked at aliens...

Re: Rebalance: Is this fairly acceptable as Long War?

Well, it is definitely 'unbalance' rather than 'rebalance' :) However if you fail each one retry of LW on Normal there is sth or a lot wrong with your tactics/strategy rather than with soldier stats. You are bumping aim (probably to hit more often) and defense (probably to get hit less often). But w...

Re: Getting big ships down

Squadron size is subject to limits - it is in description and Readme. Include Lt - and you can send 2 ships. Include HPTM and you can send 3 ships, Maj. for 4 and so on. I bet your Firestorm is piloted by at least Oberst :) Good guess? So he can command a squadron of 5. Until I manage to spawn sensi...

Re: Getting big ships down

As written in description. It is the ship with highest aggro. If all have the same aggro then the first leader is chosen randomly. The list of selected ships is auto sorted so leader is always on top. When during fight you withdraw leader or it is destroyed the next ship in line becomes new leader. ...
