EU didn't really change the story at all. Just added new gameplay elements that expanded how you could do the missions.

That said, the "lore" is that you lose the first game. During an EU-specific mission where the aliens attack your base, the commander (you) was captured and Humanity quickly fell after that.

I don't think so. I we haven't seen the andromedian and floaters in gameplay. Mutons are back but there hasn't been anything new on that either.

We haven't seen commander units besides the advent guy, either. I refuse to believe there is only one kind of viper or sectoid.

Kinda of. There are things like damage reduction and they've claimed in streams that shots use a new formula but their biggest boasting point is that now you enter missions in a stealth mode and can spring ambushes. and overwatch has been changed to be more effective and to distribute targets.

But its still the wall hugger game.

They're a branch of the invading aiens. In EU they appeared only as the Thinmen from gene altering but still had the weird Agility, high aim, and poison spit. In UFO defense they were supposed to be full of eggs, I don't know if it will be the same in 2.

Now it's they appear in their true form, although I'm sure that key speaker guy is a thinman.

ayys in XCOM EU/EW (including EW because why not)

Exalt
Exalt Elite
Sectoid
Sectoid commander
Mechtoid
Floater
Heavy floater
Thin mint
chrysalid
seeker
sectopod
Muton
berzerker
Muton elite
Ethereal

ayys in Xcom 2 (that we know of)

Advent grunt
Advent stun rod melee guy
Advent defender
Advent Captain
Snek
Pectoid
Krissy lid
Muton
Berserker
Andromedon
Archon
Codex
Gatekeeper
new sectopod
ethereal (assumed, but why wouldn't there be an ethereal?)

Why don't the ayy lmaos just ask humans for experimentation? They don't need to do all the abductions.

If they're truly a more intelligent species, they wouldn't waste effort and resources trying to fight when they could just convince the lesser races.

Heck, they could invent a religion, make themselves as gods and they'd get lots of people as followers and willing subjects of experimentation.

I'm 99% certain that if there is any other intelligent life in the universe, they have very similar problems to us in that regard (factions fighting over things like philosophy and religion, how to work with aliens, etc)

I doubt our contact with intelligent life is gonna be like star trek, where there is some entity that can speak for the entirety of a species and they have no issues with dissenters. Unless they have already reached a singularity, in which case their purpose for seeking us out is probably to invite us to it.

Of course you can. One human (the player or a new factions charismatic leader) finds out the long term truth of everything and begins spreading the information while fighting to win back human minds and leverage the ayyy's technology against them.

Initially you're labeled an extremist terrorist, then as the game goes on a freedom fighter and hero of humanity as people are convinced of the truth.

Endgame depending on how well you performed you kick the ayys of your planet and keep the technology, laying the ground work for a xenophobic and militaristic humanity guns aimed at the rest of the galaxy, or any number of milder endings, and of course your bad ends which may take many forms.

Well, they have Mind Spin, which can mind control you if you have low will stat, but can just disorient you or cause panic. So it's pretty freaking bad either way. Funny enough that Mind Control is the least threatening, as you can either just Flashbang or kill the Sectoid to get your soldier back no worse for wear.

None of that really matters as long as you're given the tools to deal with it.

The problem with vanilla EU is that the game is balls to the walls hard at the start but almost everything becomes trivial as soon as you have good equipment and soldiers.

I'm hoping more than anything that with 2 they make the second half more varied, or at least that mod support will manage to do it without going too far like Long War.

Well the ayy lmaos just wanted to test humanity in the hopes they could create a new psyker better then th etherals. So they were probably going to use the commander to make an ayylmao commander.

As for Thin men, Thin men are now in charge of propaganda and secret police in colonies whilst the female reptillians aka the vipers being on the front lines.

They probably tried to. Or maybe the ehtereals gave up on that and just tried to focus on making them roughly human so you couldn't tell if you were looking at them from far away.

why are you people pretending to be me?
i posted these because I couldn't give two fucks about anybody or anything on this planet. And the reason for that is I find everybody's intellectual intelligence far less superior than our alien overlords. So I couldn't give two fucks about what happens to anybody or anything on this planet. In all honesty, if something does happen to all of humanity, I won't care either. I don't care if anything bad, or if anything good happens to humanity. I'll praise humanity, yeah, but I'm not gonna care. I may emphasize that I do, but I really won't. So here's a word of advice. you can comment on this and say whatever you want. I won't care, and nor will I comment back. Just know this. If the alien invasion happens, and I hate you all, if you all become xcom soldiers don't think I will not hesitate to kill you. Because as soon as I kill you while you're xcom, I will take your to aliens and sell your body to them. I will not care. I actually look forward to an alien invasion myself. A lot of people do. In fact, if an alien invasion happens, one of two things I'm doing is either A. going around and having sex with snake waifus, possibly making a harem B.killing Xcom soldiers, I won't care. But, I will definitely be killing people who are already in Xcom, trying to kill aliens. I will not care. I will not hesitate. You will die over and over again. I will make sure of that myself. Xcom is actually my forte. I have an arsenal of weapons down in my room. alien invasion, I welcome you. Gives me the reason to do the perfect murder. Kill somebody who isn't xcom, and say that they were xcom. They'll believe it too. I don't care about any of you, just putting that out there right now. It may look like I do, I honestly don't. I don't care.

I really fucking love for it to be some sort of alternate timeline that is part of the proper storyline. Like you find that out partway through, and you need to figure out where and when the aliens went back in time or something. Then go about fixing things, or bring in some proper X-Com reinforcements from the real timeline.

>>323284390
I haven't seen any video footage yet, but they did show images and explain mechanics. Implantation now works via the poison effect their attacks cause, meaning that if a 'Lid attacks one of your soldiers and that soldier is then shot dead by a Viper, they will still turn. An implanted person doesn't turn into a zombie, but into an immobile cocoon, which will burst into three 'Lids if not destroyed. They can also burrow into the ground, but have less health.

Hard to tell. It probably depends on just how low their health is, how hard their attacks hit, how tough the cocoons are etc.
Also on the missions they show up in and whether you can just slowly overwatch leapfrog backwards and still complete your objective. Terror missions now require you to save six out of thirteen civilians to count as a success. Then again, I have no idea what effect a failure will have.

Those were the sort of things I immediately thought they were adding when they said you would play as a rebel faction.

Like having more AI on the battlemaps, and them sometimes rallying to help you, or providing you with information, or if they are pro alien helping the aliens.

Hard roguelikes are pretty much all still alive, there are plenty on the steam store, they're true permadeath and nethack has probably been getting updates for longer than you've been alive, from the sound of it.

>"We really wanted [the Archon] to be a contrast to the Floater," art director Greg Foertsch told Shacknews. "The Floater is dirty and grungy, and we wanted to embody 'elegance' with this. We somehow landed on Egyptian influence--it was so elegant with a lot of gold. He has this sort of angelic feel. We were really trying to contrast against other characters, and with this inner rage, the violence when he attacks. We also wanted to contrast that."

Nope. Take the godless faggots in scandinavia. 80% is a member of the church, but less than 5% actually goes to church. Western people are "christians" due tradition, not faith.
