Re: Epic fail

Haven retal incoming, all Teams are occupied, luckily a jailbreak Mission is going to complete getting infiltrated halfway through the timer on the retal. So I do this and I know, gotta Play this smart, gotta Play it safe, I Need those People to make it unwounded. So I move real slow, shinobi ahead,...

Re: Praised be Shinobi - Shinobi worshiper club

my shinobis constantly die and then I just buy the next recruits to Train them as my disposable Scout cannon fodder
(slightly kidding, shinobis are great but it's a fact that they're the class that dies most often on me. Once they get the reaper skill they're melee powerhouses).

Re: Rational decision making on Basic Research

I also don't think that scientists as haven managers are a good choice in most situations. As I see it, you really want to detect faceless as soon as possible for various reasons, them interfering with resource collection and speeding up retals being some of the reasons. Also not having the scientis...

Re: Rendezvous Retalation (Faceless Missions) doesn´t work correctly??

Against faceless (even with Advent remaining) I like to set overwatch traps since they don't Regenerate the damage they take during their turn. Then, they're easier to finish off while hopefully some rebels remain to flashbang remaining Advent.

- With a good Advisor: don't put under-leveled trash soldiers if you have a small haven. Personally I like Gunners with decent aim. - With some patience: recon the place, check where the faceless are, identify the pattern of the roaming pod. - With a good plan: ambush the roaming pod as far away of...

Re: Just had my first Invasion

My usual strategy is to forego the pull and snipe tactics and bumrush the ground enemy troops using consumables and cooldowns early, on multiple pod activations. That way you're getting the whole squad closer to the beacon faster and at the same time since there's less enemies on the ground, RNF is...

Re: Building Tall?

A region that's not liberated but high on vigilance will hold a lot of legions that would otherwise end up in the surrounding regions. Makes it easier to keep more regions at low strenght. You're missing the %bonuses but you're still gathering supplies and with easier missions it's easier to get mo...

Re: Building Tall?

I've done away with liberating more than 1 region. What I do is I focus down a region, the region gets so much vigilance that ADVENT starts moving legions and sending UFOs. Hopefully I can stop some of those for profit, but it's alright if you can't, since you can also do the Troop Columns. You'll ...
