Actually, I find Legendary quite dull and restrictive (timer too short, Haven Recruits too similar to PP Recruits, not enough choice of Armours etc), so I choose to play on Hero.
I also choose not to build superheroes, and without superheroes I find the difficulty to be about right for my level of ability.
Of course, I could opt to build a Terminator, activate RC and stroll across the map annihilating all before me, but I self-restrict in a variety of ways and play HonestMan (which is essentially Ironman without the autosaves), and while that generally works for me, at times when things get hairy, it’s very difficult to resist the urge to press the ‘win game’ buttons and go into full superman mode.
But for me that’s simply not very interesting, which is why I’d like the devs to give me the option to turn it off. I’d much rather lose a favourite squaddie, but feel a sense of achievement about beating a mission where all but one of my squad got panic-locked or the squad got bombed to sh*! by Bombard Chirons, or half of them got MC’d by Sirens (all of which have happened), than engage an RC or AR loop and cheeze my way through the scenario.
But that’s just me. You have different goals and that’s fine. I don’t want to stop you having your fun, but similarly I’d still like the option to have mine and not constantly have to fight the urge to hit the ‘get out of jail free’ button.
All I’m saying is the only way the devs can give us both what we want, is either by making the game fully moddable, or by giving us Second Wave Options, where you can tick ‘Supermen On’ and I can tick ‘Supermen Off’ (though tbh it would be better if there was more granularity to it than that, like asking us how many times per turn we’d like RC to return APs or some such).
It’s on the cards, but not any time soon, as the devs have way too much on their plate atmo. But I can wait.
