Re: 4th Legendary AAR (restarted 3rd)

Recover ? I was not even hurt. I was doing full expansion by sitting in one region. Got DE UFO and I will sit in one region until June. This UFO will intercept. Why and what to wait? I will lose 20 missions and play Golden Path in high Strength regions. Been there before. There is nothing to do on t...

4th Legendary AAR (restarted 3rd)

I made beginner mistake on 3rd. I was tall and did 100% infiltration. Extremely Light should be goal not 100% I got UFO hunt vs 23 strong barracks. There was nothing to play on that map for me. I was not interested in playing in one or two regions and doing same stuff as before. Aborted because this...

Re: LW 1.5 Grenadier builds

Salvo for sapper is not bad choice. If you can't destroy you can hurt - Twice. RD will benefit more from Volatile Mix but heavy Plasma grenade build needs more actions. This all depends where you are in game. Spring - you need 3x RD for Lib1 and Tower and one Sapper (last). Flashbang is weapon of ch...

Re: PI thoughts on mod that gives player vigilance information

Re: So im not getting retaliation missions anymore

Every day at 7.00 AM game checks for all retaliations. I think you will make your game even harder. Rebels have 60% chance to be detected if they are detected they fill the bucket. All bucket can be filled at same time depending on activity. Full retaliation is always filled. Trouble start with few ...

Re: How early is too early to liberate?

If you are low on intel. Intel + POI mission usually spawn in medium vigilance (around 12) regions with S&G. It is worth of scanning there if you have free soldiers (or just to keep other regions in lower vigilance) for much needed early intel. You can detect them very easy and they have less ba...

Re: How early is too early to liberate?

This works in winter when you can fetch more with haven. One S&G can be better than month of supply job In Spring - you have little chance of doing UFO. In early April only your starting region can fetch good timer UFO. Late April - two more towers and you can chase them (just to find spawning t...

Found these new nice info. So if you want to reduce retaliations, you have two paths. 1/ You can reduce the number of Rebels working on a Job to reduce the speed at which that bucket fills and/or reduce the overall number of working rebels to reduce the speed at which the full retaliation bucket fil...

They will get UFO - even on hiding after liberation 2 or even after first Jailbreak. There is low chance to detect this UFO so you will need Avenger.

Re: So im not getting retaliation missions anymore

You can see result after 1 day of scanning. Game will check conditions. Forcing full retaliation will empty the bucket , than bucket must be filled again. Do not edit cooldowns or chance per rebel at least you can lower the numbers for rebels and increase cooldown time. Do not put 0 as factor becaus...
