Re: Please rethink this!

Just putting my 2 cents in. I often wonder if this mod's intention is to either deliver fun experience to the player, or to make the victory more harder to approach so the player needs to invest a lot of time into it. LW2 feels like a problem, an issue, a question that requires dedicated thinking, r...

Re: MECs seem underwhelming

This post is irrelevant from the topic, but I would like to see a variety of SPARK classes instead of just one, and build one of each SPARK version in the Proving Grounds. I wish I could have a Squadsight SPARK with good Aim progression... By the way, does the Rainmaker actually enhance Bombard? Bec...

Re: How to buff/balance Specialist Interference ability?

I like OP's first suggestion, which improves Interference to be a free-action.

I wonder if changing its charge system, so the charges can be replenished per several turns would be overpowered.

This is not a topic-related post, but does Combat Awareness benefit those who are suppressing? I thought it only affects overwatching units.

Is underinfiltrating 1 enemy-count level bearable?

I am doing a Veteran Campaign, and the current date is December 6 2035. I need to destroy an Alien Relay in an ADVENT Strength 4 region so I can prevent the data leak. However the given infiltration time is not enough (3 Days 6 Hours), and my B team of six members can only infiltrate at 93%, even wi...

Re: tactical vest vs Statis Vests

Stasis Vests could be good for a small team that does not have a seat for a Specialist Medic, but only if you have some ADVENT Shieldbearer corpses to use. While Tactical Vests... I use them on my Arc Assaults. They are okay when a tanker has to withstand some focus fire, but there are so many enemi...

Re: Could Deep Cover get some small rework?

The Steady Weapon issue should be fixed in 1.3. Kind of dumb if overwatch is nullified by it still though. - Using Steady Weapon will now count as an attack action for the purposes of Deep Cover, meaning DC will not trigger. This prevents Deep Cover auto-canceling the Steady Weapon bonus. Thanks! T...

Hellweave Vest and Combatives

Does Hellweave Vest still deal damage to the melee attacker, when that melee attacker is already parried and counter-attacked by Combatives Perk?

Also, if the melee attacker uses melee counter-attack instead of melee normal-attack, does Hellweave Vest deal damage to that melee-attacker?

Re: Could Deep Cover get some small rework?

I thought you still get your overwatch shot plus the benefits of hunkering? Unfortunately, no. It negates any actions including Steady Weapon and Overwatch, which means Sharpshooters and Overwatchers must avoid picking DC. Now if DC also negates Suppression, that's one of the worst Abilities availa...

Could Deep Cover get some small rework?

When Deep Cover (or DC) pops up as the first Defensive AWC Ability a soldier can learn, it makes me sigh. It is definitely not bugged and is currently working as intended, but it always negates Overwatch which is a double-edged sword, just like how v1.2 Covering Fire had unreliability when it comes ...

Re: Fire control and lightning reflexes

I believe Fire Control lets the user take a reaction fire against the target, if the hit chance is at or higher than x%. It does not check whether the target has the Lightning Reflexes or not, it only checks the hit chance. So if a moving unit with Lightning Reflexes has run too many Overwatches and...

Re: Some feedback on Holo-sharpshooters

I agree, in this state I would rather take one more custom-build Sharpshooter, Shredder Gunner or even a Ranger with Redscreen Rounds and Pistol Perks rather than a Holo-Sharpshooter. If every version of Holo-targeters get a +5 Aim buff (as trihero suggested) and also reduces enemy Dodge by the valu...

Tell you what tho, dedicated Haven Advisors are not a good idea in general, unless I guess those Rangers came out with really inadequate stats (low aim AND 13 mobility).

As the title says. I am building two Ranger Officers that solely operate as Haven Advisors, so I am picking specific Abilties that suit themselves and the situation.

Psi Lab I think suffers from the same problem as AWC, it drains your science too much, and delays other critical tech.

Re: The AWC is my favorite building but...

On Veteran, I just buy Scientist and Engineer from the get go, GTS after 30~45 days, Psi Lab, and then AWC at the deepest floor (B4 floor, left or right).

Faster healing rate is very nice to have, but you never want to get injured the first place.

Re: Temporary solution of Solace bug

I started my campaign at 1.4, so the Solace that caused the issue must be the version of 1.4.
