Re: Feedback for that "Avenger Defense" Mission

Yeah. It's very difficult. However, I beat it once when every one was out. Only 7 people total left in the barracks.

Re: The worst yellow alert activation

Some decent scouting beforehand would have eliminated this threat. This isn't a LW2 problem. It's a tactics problem.

Re: Tactical Employment of XCOM Troops

Strength 5 or 6 is pretty much the limit of where I run GoPs. Although last night I had a Rendezvous mission in some region. I didn't really pay attention. So I get there and I only have 4 rebels with me and I know the haven had at least 12. We spy the first pod, which is a pod of 4 and it's like 25...

Re: Invasion One-Shotting the Relay

Yeah, right :) My last invasion, I had to shoot the thing 3 times to blow it up, so it doesn't happen all the time. But I have seen it happen. I think it has to be on the roof, and the damage to be minimum of 10, or something like that, for the bug to manifest. I was using Talon Rounds on the invas...

Re: FL UFO Cooldown

Thanks for the answer! One of the reasons I asked was because I was wondering whether a mod might have changed the value. But it seems perhaps you changed it and just didn't mention that in the changelog... Hey Pro what's going on. It's Frankie. Anyhow I guess I should look into this syncing the UF...

Re: How to tune down the number of haven infiltration attacks

I ended my first LW2 campaign because once I had people all over the world the haven infiltration attacks were just so common. Is there any way I can make them ~5x less often? What do you mean, "people all over the world"? If you mean you liberated all the regions, then then the haven attacks are s...

So I thought it might make regular pistols apply rupture like plasma I guess... But not, turns out that perk just gives a rupture speci...

Re: Faceless / Liberated Regions

Well I thought I'd gotten rid of my faceless problem in my liberated region, since Advent launched a full scale invasion on it last night... So killed a couple of faceless, finished the mission. Next supply drop, still losing supplies... The other region that's doing supply has had a GSGT in it for ...

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...

Honestly, we know some of our audience are min-maxxers by nature and our Skype logs would show that we worked on trying to ensure that you couldn't do so by constant fiddly micromanagement of the rebels. :) One problem comes down to the internal limits on how many missions can spawn in a region at ...

Re: "Haven Infiltrators" Dark Events Lasts Too Long

I don't think its really that bad. You'd probably want to avoid doing a Jailbreak with like 3+ rebels in it because the odds of getting multiple faceless there is high enough that it would probably hurt the haven more than it would help. Although this could also be exploited for some gain. If you d...
