You see anon, we humans are too proud to accept any aid of that sort.

Educate me /v/.
Is the premise of X-COM 2 that the aliens won and now you're some sort of underground group trying to liberate the planet from ayyylmaos?

How do you get funding if that's the case? Do you go on missions where you raid Alien facilities and steal their tech instead of having an RnD department and that's how you get new shit?

Anyone disappointed by the Advent troops?

I thought they would be regular humans recruited by the ayylmao but it looks like they are some kind of alien/human hybrid.

Would have been nice if their faces, gender and race were randomized just like XCOM but instead we get more faceless mooks.
>>
>>323632017
It's possible, although they seemed like they were after world domination for themselves rather than ayy overlords.

>>323632041
Might be cool. It would make sense, I suppose.

This might be lame but I'd like to see a video where the firaxis team looks at and discusses the isis/Xcom pics.

>>
Anyone else realize the aliens are literally the Combine? almost the same exact situation. though things are a bit more dire in half life world.
>>
>>323628658
Because the aliens feed on negative energy. They pretend to be our friends, yet they abduct millions of people each year, mutilating them and bathing in their organs in vats on their ships and underground bases. They are willing to help humans, for a price. By accepting their transumanist agenda, you forfeit the salvation of the Lord Jesus Christ.

So yeah, fuck them.
>>
>>323632367
I think one of the designers actually had to give an explicit answer that XCOM weren't terrorists, rather freedom fighters toppling a regime, and so won't do anything too ISISlike.

Their gender is randomized, and it's implied they're being mind controlled and/or modified after they enlist.

Besides, even if they weren't, XCOM are terrorists

I had a vague idea what was coming, but I didn't know how to execute it properly. It was super cool. I sent three to activate the ship beacon and the other ones provided cover/ran.

The three on the ship had to take turns making a blue move and firing/reloading while the odd man out got to gold move I think. everyone lived and I got the last person to the evac literally right before the bombs came. Shit was like a movie.

I don't know how possible it would be to mod, but some sort of "morality" system where if you mod Soldiers too heavily with alien stuff you'd run risk of conversion or other downsides would be cool. Also could add auxiliary bonuses for staying relatively "pure".

The best comparison I can think of is DoW2:Chaos Rising's campaign corruption mechanic

This. Maybe it's in the full game, (I doubt it,) but this is my main and really only non-nitpick issue with the game so far. It really should feel like it will take a lot of effort to convince humanity that you're right, like the Advent shill OP said, on the surface, things have gotten a lot better for the average person, and there's been 20 years of illuminati/muh J00s-tier propaganda against you.

It should be morally grey to an extent, you're trying to liberate what looks like a peaceful planet.

Also what the fuck how is the council back, they're shown in a loss to be mindcontrolled, and it's not like they hav eany sort of tonal difference in the end screen, they're very explicitly controlled, considering the invasion is literally a test of human psionic power and potential.

If the EXALT bandana is anything to go by, I'd guess the canon reason is their members joined resistance groups (including XCOM) out of necessity. The bios for soldier recruits include ex-cons, so XCOM's not likely to be too picky.
>>
>>323641149
Enemy Within isn't a part of X2's timeline. Which means the point when it's supposed to start (Base Defense), is when XCOM was defeated. EXALT are out there, somewhere.

The Green goop stuff was the analysis of the Alien Food containers you got in EU/EW.
