Re: How long until you moved on?

*checks steam* After sinking over 1000 hours into longwar2 I've started spending time on other things. The drive to play does wear off once the updates dry up... especially after completing the game on numerous occasions. I've found myself goin' back to my previous loves - Eve Online & Mechwarrior o...

Re: XCOM 2 expansion + Long War 2: Nothing to announce

I've had abit of a change of heart in some respects. Stemming from how content i am with LW 1.5. If there is no WoTC update for Longwar so be it. The game is in a more than acceptable state right now and while the expansion content and engine tweaks would be welcomed, its by no means a deal breaker ...

Re: XCOM 2 expansion + Long War 2: Nothing to announce

I have conceded that the more ways the game can be enjoyed the better. Those that enjoy the pacing and flow of the "casual" vanilla xcom2 now have an expansion to sink their teeth into. I'm all for it. Go nuts. For those of us who live and die by the more hardcore experience that LW2 and others (lik...

Re: XCOM 2 expansion + Long War 2: Nothing to announce

@8wayz - I've no issue with people enjoying the game however they like, infact the more ways the better. There is such thing as ingame difficulty levels and - as you pointed out - things like second wave options to customize to your hearts content which could easily have altered the flow and length ...

Re: XCOM 2 expansion + Long War 2: Nothing to announce

Really, cause if they were inhouse then there wouldn't have been a Long War 2 and by your statement without Long War 2 you wouldn't have supported them...??? I think your missing the point, I'm simply stating that if Firaxis has brought the Longwar team in on the initial development the base game m...

Re: XCOM 2 expansion + Long War 2: Nothing to announce

Wow, it's actually really really sad to see this attitude, but I guess to each their own. Without Firaxis there would not have been a Long War in the first place and WotC is an incredible experience, such hostility toward it is shocking to me. The claims that it isn't as enjoyable as Long War 2 to ...

Re: Your "whoah that just happened" moments

I try to play this game without abusing the stealth mechanics too much.. So when i hit a network tower mission in April during a new 1.2 campaign i loaded up my best 5man squad - some laser rifles and not much else - infiltrated & launched. Butchered the first 2 pods of 3-4 advent inside the first 3...

Re: Savescumming class rolls

The pool you can draw a class from is limited by the classes already assigned that way. Ahhh i'd never triggered that the 8 man class pool from the first mission actually continued in groups of 8 for the rest of the game.. resetting every 9th. That'll learn me for not using the gts :P you should ju...

I encountered this bug on a 'defend the datatap' mission. Initially when i spawned on the map noone except my officer (specialist - spec'd completely down the right side of the officer tree) could move - and he had a yellow move only. Everyone else in the squad didnt appear to receive any action poi...

Just a QoL improvement .. I know it changes from red -> green text when you possess enough materials, wouldnt it be beneficial to also know how many of a certain item your actually holding too? /salute if someones already mentioned this already ;) .
