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

What I tend to do for the first 2 regions is just go max intel and bounce the avenger back and forth. You can only have 2 gops per region so once a region has 2, go to the other region to scan. I try to pickup the 3rd region quickly and get that on recruit right away. It's sort of a race against vi...

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

Rebels are MAXED in most regions for the better part of early months in my games already & i STILL get impossible odds to reach a mission site in time even while stealthed. Define "MAXED." How many rebels per region are we talking here? Most regions begin with 4-6 rebels in my experience, and like ...

Frag has the ring and the grip but the other two... Do you really see them so different?
I can understand why you find them similar, but I personally don't have a problem telling those two apart. Flashbang has a little ring on top, Smoke has no ring and a grip on one side.

Re: [Suggestion/Request] Restart Reloads the Map?

(I believe it was this way in the original LW, which I vastly preferred, though of course I'm not saying that means you have to include it or anything!) in LW1, XCOM's starting position and the positions of alien pods would be re-generated on a restart, although the map itself remained the same.

Re: unrevealed faceless w/Intel gathering ?

There is no absolute guarantee those rebels are "clear" as there is always a possibility a faceless will act as a rebel even in missions to kill other faceless, but it does reduce the risk a lot. How sure are you about that, and do you have a source? Everything else I've read to this point, people ...

Re: Holodeck UI improvements

1. When an infiltration mission hits 100% the time will pause (or rather slow back down to normal) but there is no visual indication that some trigger has happened. It would be good to have a popup or focus on the infiltration mission that prompted the slow. I agree, this would be nice. So far, I'v...

Re: How are people liberating regions so fast?

Yeah, I ran a bunch of stealth missions (Lullaby squad was particularly lucky/consistent at sneaking in the back door of just about everything), but always with 4-5-6 man squads. I tried to stealth whenever possible, but I was always too nervous to send in just 2 people in case things went sideways...

Re: Advent Visions

I was under the impression Advent could lose vision of your troops. As long as they could see none of them.

As a side-note, does anyone actually know where the soldiers learning in the AWC do supposedly go?

There are a number of regular beds around the chamber, and then on...

Man, Bradford sure gets a lot of hate. Am I the only one who actually enjoys his character and the VA's performance of it in XCOM 2? I think he single-handedly makes this game epic as hell with his badass radio chatter. I think the majority of the hate stems from the change in VA from X1 to X2. Whi...

Re: Theory: The black market is Exalt.

Interesting theory. I'm willing to believe that at least some of Exalt's operatives have broken off and are now running/participating in the Black Market in the manner you describe here, although I think the bulk of Exalt's forces have been turned into what we now know as ADVENT. There are two thing...

Re: An alternative way of handling infiltration and mission types

Low infiltration missions offer no concealment start and actually let Advent possibly get concealment from you. Don't know if the Advent AI is smart enough to deal with that though. Also, a deeper fog so less known about the map. High infiltration missions reveal more of the map, letting you pre-pl...
