Long time Xcom2 player here (over 500 hours), playing PP on Veteran difficulty.
On my fifth mission in I faced an attack on a friendly haven with three sirens. Going all out, with every soldier dashing (some twice in one round), grenades, etc, I managed to get ONE down before the other two mind controlled my entire team in two turns.
Are you joking?
I’m about to start my fourth attempt to play through this game (which I only accidentally bought for myself, as I was actually trying to gift it to my 71yo Dad, who has had very little success on the game on the lowest difficulty from the get go). I’m giving it a go because I loved the original XCOM, love the fact that you’re trying something a bit different than what’s out there now, but… damn.
Creators, have you even been playing these sorts of games in the last ten years? This is so sub par.
