Retaliation minimum rebel numbers in haven

Post by Undershaft » Tue Oct 02, 2018 6:26 pm

If I remember correctly, it used to be common knowledge that you could avoid full retaliations by having no more than 4 rebels on any job and mini retaliations by having no more than 5 rebels on a specific job (modified by faceless, who count double).

However, looking at the ufopedia article, it looks completely different now (and a bit inconsistent):

The entry was changed in March, and I'm not sure if the editor included or excluded potential faceless.
Does anybody know the actual mechanics?

Only 2 rebels working per job are safe, but they count combined against Full Retal. I don't remember the specifics of strenght requirements but it's from strenght 3 and upwards, and I think it's strenght 4 for supply retal.

The best strategy (IMO) is to hide all rebels but 2 in very high strenght regions and try to force the retaliations in the less dangerous regions. That'll put the said retal in cooldown, giving you at least two weeks where you can use that job in high strenght regions safely.
