Re: suggestions: wotc

my main suggestions for wotc/lw is just stuff to avoid: - tired mechanic... infiltration already tries to accomplish what tired does in wotc, if you add it and keep infiltrations, then you will have double mechanics keeping you from using your troops. infiltration is the better of the two imho, sinc...

Re: LW2 v1.5 is Live

In case WotC breaks things (even without buying the expansion), is there a way on Steam to lock your xcom2 game at the specific build? I won't be buying the xpac anyway because I feel like it's a money grab. They removed the option to opt out from updating games on steam, so the only way I know is ...

Re: Replacing Concussion Rockets with another skill.

Not sure if it's a thing you can do, but maybe just take the smoke off the rocket so that it actually is useful? EDIT - coupla other ideas: Some kinda gas rocket. Single-target rocket that rolls to hit, instead of scattering, but does more damage. That's actually kinda cool idea, replacing smoke wi...

Thanks for the fast replies!
You should also be aware that modded classes with secondary pistols also won't work with the AWC perks for pistols in LW2

Re: Your least favorite things about 1.3 ?

If pods are getting a scamper on your turn without activating, then that is not LW2 (or at least we've never seen that in testing). Yeah I get their animation like as if they activated, but then they just walk slowly in their normal patrol (during my turn). Guess I need to figure out what mod does ...

Re: Your least favorite things about 1.3 ?

Something else I've only noticed since 1.3 (but might be part of other mods I'm running) is that if my concealed shinobi finds an enemy squad, they get a move, even if they don't see him, and that movement can make them see my other soldiers and fully activate them. Also I had a situation of a zombi...

Your least favorite things about 1.3 ?

So, companion post... what are your least favorite changes in 1.3? For me it's that the difference between a small and medium squad is basically non-existant. I've had several missions where I put in 3-5 guys and see that I'm not able to infiltrate 100%, so I remove one guy, and the infiltration tim...

Re: PI thoughts on mod that gives player vigilance information

I like the mod, same as with most mods that give additional information. Most the information is something that a very experienced player might otherwise know, but since I'm not on that level I like mods that help me give me information like this. When I watch vids like xwynns he's always talking ab...

Obviously it's your game and you mod it as you like but concerning the "not intuitive" part i think many people don't understand what medikits are really in this game.

Re: Solution for 0% column ambush/supply raids.

How about saying that column ambush and supply raids are something you can't plan for, you just get an opening to do it immediately. So there's no infiltration, and it has to be done immediately or not at all, and it could be balanced according to that (maybe give it similar troops to a 100% infiltr...

Tactical Suppressors and Spec Ops combat knives . When everyone else is complaining about the push into stealth on 1.2, I'm loving it.

So in waiting for 1.3 I've been playing around with a lot of different mods, and I'm curious what gameplay changes others play with. I'm ignoring cosmetic, maps and class mods, since those are pretty plug and play regardless. But apart from that, this is the mods I use with some reasoning for why I ...

Re: Is it worth to start playing LW2 1.2 since patch 1.3 is coming soon?

I've never stopped modding since starting playing XCOM2 seriously in November, although I basically purged everything but the basics when LW2 came out. I've gone through a lot more than just the ones I have now, but I have about 50 mods, most of them actually doing stuff to the UI/gameplay. I think...
