Re: Retaliation minimum rebel numbers in haven

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 re...

Re: SPARKS too OP?

Gets harder as the campaign gets longer as SPARKs have a low aim progression, no weapon mods (no ammo mods hurts them the most) and their multishot skill, although you get it at the start, is on a long cooldown. Basically their damage output late on the campaign is crap and they have a hard time hit...

No, there's an upgrade skill to Stasis called Stasis Shield that enables you to target allies.

Re: How long until you moved on?

But the new stuff has like zero depth. I think like this hits the nail on the head regarding the new game offerings. Most of the games once I feel like I "get it" I can cruise thru the game and I don't feel compelled to even finish it, maybe just for completion's sake. LW2 was different i...

Re: Lament for LWOTC

It makes me sad too, since I spent so much time with LW2 (I estimate over 2000h). But I'm guessing it's just way too much complex work to be done by a small group for free. I'm looking out for Pavonis next project, but since the going is slow, I honestly just lost track. Heh, I still check this foru...

Re: AreaSuppression bug?

The Shieldbearer went out of sight of your Gunner by moving thru the side of the truck. Since he wasn't shot at, he was technically still under suppression thus debuffed.

How long until you moved on?

So I finally moved on from LW2. My last save is from June 5th 2018. My first post here was on January 28th 2017, which I estimate is around the same time I started playing. Which means I played this game, almost non-stop, for 1 year and 4 months. "Almost" because I was forced to stop for a...

Re: what's an average month to win by for players who are experienced at xcom, but not at longwar2? on veteran?

Depends on the difficulty. I'd say a July liberation in Legendary is fine. August in lower difficulty is slow but won't end the campaign. What really determines if your campaign is going to fail is if you haven't expanded wide enough to get to the Avatar important regions (Golden Path, Facilities) b...

Re: Commander Honestman Campaign

You're gonna have serious issues against the T2 MECs unless you get your ranger and gunner count higher and I much prefer the rangers because it takes the gunners a while to get multishotting skills unless you take Chain Shot which I find not so amazing.

Re: Commander Honestman Campaign

The issue was that you sent an underpowered team when you should have been sending a good one. If you didn't have one available then you should have skipped, because on missions with fixed evac one thing going wrong like losing conceal on turn 1 can mean squadwipe with a poor composition. Team shoul...

Re: Legend ironman successful campaign report

Well the Psi Disciples (SGT) with Adv. Amp and Neurowhips won't get good Insanity scores against full-hp tough T3 (high 50%) but there's plenty stuff that shows up where you get good chances. T2, mutons and those annoying Archons like to fill space in pods and are easy pickings. I managed to score s...

Re: Any tips for using Kubikiri?

Plasma Lance (+20%) (10% on lesser sniper rifles)
Elite Stock (+25%)
Elite Laser Sight (+15%)
Talon Rounds (+10%)
Get Some (+20%)
Aggresion(+5% per enemy)

You should also probably use Depth Perception to reduce dodge, when elevated, which reduces your crit.

Re: Legend ironman successful campaign report

Biggest balance issue was it's hard to justify doing either psi or sparks on legend (unlike commander). I wouldn't want to try and mag rush either (unlike commander), but that's not really a balance issue. I used to think like that but last campaign I decided to give Psi another go, just because bo...

Re: LW 1.5 questions

The fixed evac spawn locations being variable is a further detriment to stealth on some GOp objectives. Try and 'stealth' some prisoner(s) out when the evac is half the map away from the jail. Gotta love those 24 turn prison break maps with the evac on the spawn in one end and the cells on the oppo...

I have a few questions about the latest LW2 version: 1) Was the 0% supply raid meta fixed? In 1.2 brute forcing supply raids was a reliable way to get a lot of supplies and loot. 2) Stealthing missions(such as black vile) with a shinobi and a specialist. I remember doing a lot of missions stealthy ...

Re: LW 1.5 Grenadier builds

It's a give and take deal. Sapper gives you an option against targets behind full cover that can't be flanked. RD puts out a debuff while other characters solve that issue. My issue is that there aren't a whole lot of solutions to that problem that can fit into a 5-man GOp team, and if the Grenadier...

I am fairly confident you're not playing the same game as I am. Because according to your "balanced legendary" AAR, you have over 50 missions completed with a 100% flawless record. A great deal of those underinfiltrated. And you want me to believe you've somehow managed that feat playing a...

Re: How early is too early to liberate?

You don't really need to keep global vigilance high not to lose. What you need is to keep your intel (resource) game up at all times and keep expanding so that you get to the regions where the GP missions spawn. Which means you should really think before spending intel on things like boosts and inte...
