Re: The infestation Dark Event....

The honest way, if you have no battlescanners: 1. Try to take missions exclusively at Ex.Light while the DE is active so that you get only one chryssalid. 2. Navigate the first turns very carefully. Chryssalids pop out of the ground every couple turns, letting you at least know the direction where t...

Re: How long until you moved on?

What's BM? Do you mean Basic Research? Black Market. After I get my first rescued scientist I like to buy one, while they're cheap. 2 if I'm not getting rescues and I got cash from Smash&Grabs and excavations. Unless I'm super strapped for supplies, but I don't mind delaying workshop-proving-AW...

Re: Rupture on Pistols

What do you mean exactly? - Do they get extra damage from the target being ruptured? Yes. So do most damage dealing skills and items. Even DoTs. - Do Plasma pistols apply rupture? Yes. I'm pretty sure Fan Fire applies only one instance of rupture tho. But using Lightning Hands then Quickdraw then pi...

Dwarfling's Soldier Build Guide

This is a guide that describes the builds I use for my soldiers during my campaigns (Legendary Ironman with no mods). I play an aggressive style that relies on cover destruction and activating pods from squadsight after concealment is broken. The reason for this is the LW2 metagame: the vast majorit...

Faceless don't return the supplies they stole upon death, so it might be listing the supplies they stole that month until they died.

Re: Looking for a Long War 2 Primer

At some point I considered writing a guide but it was so much work I just abandoned the idea. Liberat...

Re: "Haven Infiltrators" Dark Events Lasts Too Long

I got a rendezvous mission that had 5 faceless. I'm like, really game? The haven only had 6 people in it. My trooper went out with 4 Rebels, so now, I have a haven with 4 rebels. I have no idea how all that works. You had 2 faceless on the region and the mission put 3 on pods. The Rendezvous missio...

Re: Faceless / Liberated Regions

You do get Rendezvous missions on Liberated regions, and they're the easiest of them all since they're at the lowest strenght.

As far as I can tell you can generate faceless from recruitment on Liberated regions.

Re: Mini-retals

Troop Columns, yes. ADVENT isn't moving legions around regions with those. So you can lower the region strenght that way.

Supply Raids, no, those come from outside by land.

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...

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.

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.

Working as intended I think. Probably to stop a duo specialist team from perma controlling a target by alternating cooldowns.
