i really loved this aspect of long war and the mod of xcom2. the idea that each solider is different and starts with differnt talent allotments is cool. that not every lv1 sniper is the same, from the same faction.annd even those from difrernt factions, are the same except for items i beleive. maybe even throw in one with a free talent every now and then would be cool. so that we can recruit and sort out soliders, i really liked in longwar1 recruiting hella soldiers and only devoting time to those that had good odds, unless deathly nesecary.
