Re: Wet Work Balance

Sadly, your conclusions are the same as my own and that of those who've come before us: Wet Work is simply not worth taking, at this point, mathematically. If it doubled kill experience, it'd be a decent use of 75 supplies early in the game, but as it is, it's just a trap. But what if you farm rein...

Re: Data leak/tap doesn't scale

bring reaper shinobis, and high mobility grenadiers + scanning protocol (to avoid pods near the starting position, you only want pods near datatap), and rush the datatap -> aoe enemies -> reap also the datatap caps at 30hp, if you want to scale more there's http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/fil...

Re: Data leak/tap doesn't scale

From my own experience I'v found that protecting the datatap itself is forfeit. You go on the mission to rescue the intel personal. bring reaper shinobis, and high mobility grenadiers + scanning protocol (to avoid pods near the starting position, you only want pods near datatap), and rush the datat...

Re: Bunker Buster doesn't work with Salvo

salvo stops turn ending grenade actions from ending your turn, but doesn't reduce the AP cost, bunker buster costs 2 AP, if you use run and gun before bunker buster you will have 1 more action if you have salvo, and 0 if you don't

Infestation and infiltrators are also good contenders, the only reason they don't take the top spot is because battlescanners exist.

Get vulture early, the upgrade pays for itself in like a month and you'll be drowned in low level upgrades and have sufficient elite upgrades, it also solves the elerium core problem.

Re: [Suggestion] Alternative Infiltration Model

I don't think using artificial restrictions to discourage stealth mission is a good idea, imo a better way is to improve loot from combat so you are rewarded for killing ayys instead (stealth means missing out loot), then balance the economy accordingly.

Re: unrevealed faceless w/Intel gathering ?

The IncomePenaltyPerFaceless is actually deprecated, only the pct faceless is used (modifier for total number of faceless, not just those doing the relevant job)

This is so that a haven won't go negative production (need 15 faceless in a single outpost in legend difficulty to hit that)

Re: Tried a 0% Ambush Troop Column...OUCH!

imo 0% troop ambush is actually easier than 0% supply raid, because despite the huge maps in supply raid, the pods just spawn next to your spawn point anyway, I never had a supply raid mission where I actually need to move around the map to kill pods, it's always defending on a corner and kill every...

Double Tap, just like the Rapid Fire it's based on, doesn't trigger various action-granting abilities if the second shot of the pair leads to a kill. It's not intended but I don't know how to fix it either. one solution to fix it is to make the second shot cost an action point, and grant action poi...

Re: Issue with the Crit "Clamping" introduced in 1.2

Negative crit is clamped, otherwise resilience will produce extra dodge.

Still, I agree excess crit should start eating away dodge.

Re: Graze Issue

That looks normal, the graze band will usually be 20% wide barring dodges/crits changing them or shots below 10% or above 90%. The increase in grazes is usually due to enemies having grazes (if you have more high crit shots than enemies with dodges this number should get lower)
