Ok. So now I’ve restarted the game for the 6th time. This time on easy. Been playing for about 10 hours now and I’m thinking of restarting cus I don’t have weapon tech to deal with scryllas that just started to turn up in a “save the haven” mission.
How am I supposed to play this game?
I have playing a bit defensive. I tried to keep the factions happy and balanced. As I progress further with one faction while keeping the others in positive relations with PP they suddenly want to kill eachother. What a dumbass thing to do when there is a common threat. In real life, even humans would have to realize that bickering would have to wait until after the big threat is gone. Well well, after they started fighting scryllas turned up everywhere and sirens gallore. No chance, i restarted. This happened twice, I can’t deal with the scryllas. I don’t know have to deal that much damage. I have no soliders on lvl 7 at this point so no cheesing with the stupid sniper/heavy combo. I should though it feels bad relying on the same combo for all endgame fights.
Lairs is a chore. I either just die - or cheese it. I had a berserker/assult combo with 20 will, ran all the way to the spawnery and killed it in two turns. Some lairs this tactic has not worked though i’d rather uninstall and wait a year for mods or updates to properly balance this kind of mechanics. Eternal spawning too, what a joke - but thats another story.
How do you guy’s balance these things and how do you get to kick som alien butt?
When do i pick sides with a faction? When do you start stealing research? When do you do and when do you not clear lairs and nests? What combination of soliders are your main team? How many teams should I optimally have? I keep recruiting all the time but have to fill up my bases with living quarters just to have enough of them to survive an attack.
Do you completely ignore vehicles? The mutant dog is so crappy. Only 40 dmg with main attack? and to daze it has to bring the enemy down on HP for it to work properly anyway. Waste of space.
The only ok vehicle seems to be the scarab. But past the first nest spawn they seem unable to deal with anything.Waste of space too.
I need mods! Or xcom 4.
