Guys should I watch Beagle's entire stream or should I just watch videos?

Also, what's the cheapest card that can play this game? I have an old 9600GT but it needs a Pixel Shader 5.0 videocard
>>
repostan for anon

from memory excuse me if any of this is wrong
SQ. = Squadsight
CPL = Long Watch (Squadsight Overwatch) or Return Fire (Shoot Revolver at first enemy who attacks you each turn)
SGT = Deadeye (ACTIVE ABILITY: Trade a fraction of your aim for a large damage boost on a single shot) or Lightning Hands (ACTIVE ABILITY: Shoot your pistol for free once)
LT = Death from Above (Killing an enemy with your sniper rifle while higher than them only costs one action instead of both, allowing you to move or reload or hunker or shoot your pistol or do ANYTHING after that kill) or Quickdraw (Shooting your pistol as your first action no longer ends your turn)
CPT = Killzone (ACTIVE ABILITY: Giant aiming cone which you place over a section of the map, you now covering fire reaction shot against EVERY enemy in that cone who does anything as long as you can see them. Squadsight included even if you didnt' take Long Watch) or Faceoff (ACTIVE ABILITY: Shoot once at every single enemy you can see with your pistol. EVERY ONE. EVEN IF THERE'S TWENTY OF THEM)
MAJ = Steady Hands (+10 Aim and +10 Crit if you didn't move last turn) or Take Aim (+20 Aim to your next turn every time you Hunker Down)
COL = Serial (ACTIVE ABILITY: Every kill you make while active refunds your actions, allowing you to kill again and again. Does not require enemy to be exposed like ITZ did. Combo with Superior Autoloader and E-Mags to rek 18 aliens in one turn) or Fan Fire (ACTIVE ABILITY: Shoot an enemy three times with your pistol in one action)
>>
So if there's a way to share your custom soldier designs with people, how will we as a group be able to share them? Codes or do we have to be friends on Steam in order to do so? Or is it all stored into a server at Firaxis and we get them at random?
>>
>>128767274
Pretty sure they said it's just generic file sharing, though I assume there's some standardized way through Steam workshop or whatever. They said the soldier pool is just a file and each soldier is like 2kb so it's hardly intensive

Explain to him, like a child, that not only are all the aliens he's seeing part of an invasion fleet, but they are under direct cybernetic & psychic mind-control with zero chance of breaking free or even, most likely, having a single dissident thought.

Also call him a bleeding heart faggot, and no he can't 'save them', the filthy alien sympathizer.
>>
>>128774736
The art style is atrocious and it basically does nothing better than OpenXCOM but a slightly more intuitive interface. No psionics, all the aliens are blatant clones from UFO Defense but feel utterly generic compared to UFO-D's more memorable designs (even for the most generic shit like Sectoids). It's the type of game where you periodically just stop and wonder why you're playing it instead of something else (OpenXCOM in this case).

Super practical actually. Take Aim is amazing regardless of sharpshooter type. It's 20 aim after a hunker down.

>Run Gunslinger up near a pod
>Hunker down
>Next turn
>Lightning-Hands Free Pistol shot
>Quick Draw Fire Pistol
>Face-Off
>All of this with +20 aim

It's actually an amazing ability to amplifies snipers to be the point I can't imagine why you would take the other perk. It works just as well with Sniper Sharpshooters because 20 aim is 20 aim.

The specialist seems really boring, which is unfortunate as the gremlin looked cool.

Alright, let's keep going.

>>
>>128767139
so taking the right abilities allows you to shoot 5 times with your pistol

lightning hands(1)+quickdraw(1)+ fan fire(3)

how does face off work in terms of ammo?

I haven't been following them LPs and shit so closely, so I gotta ask - how are pistols doing in 2? I get the impression that only sharpshooters kept them, and even then they're revolvers for some reason.

>I get the impression that only sharpshooters kept them, and even then they're revolvers for some reason.
That is true. They seem to be fairly powerful if you spec your sharpshooter right.
>>
>>128780539
Yeah there's no sidearms

Now it's Gun + CLASS TOOL

But for the sharpshooter their CLASS TOOL is another gun
>>
>>128779705
Specialist is just an upgraded Support which was the most boring but practical class in the game. At least now it has it's own thing and is a lot more interesting and playstyles can vary. It really only looks boring next to the other classes which look amazing.

It also doesn't help that psi-ops are also Super-Supports with a variety of other amazing powers. But still Specialists are amazing at what they do.
>>
>>128781008
Which is honestly stupid. Having a sidearm in case of malfunction is really useful.
>>
>>128780610

>>128781195
Eh, I'm not too upset. Pistols were only really useful when knocking down the last few HP for capturing ayys or for covops missions.
To say nothing of the classics, where they were all absolutely useless with the sole exception of the Megapol plasma gun from Apoc.

>>
>>128780539
Pistols are OP. The only long range perk I'll take over pistol is the 'squadsight overwatch' perk over the 'return fire' perk because who the fuck lets their sniper get shot at? The killzone perk looks comparable at least, although I wanted to smack the idiot who didn't put a E-mag on his sniper that had it. Unlimited shots for overwatch, and you only have 3 rounds max?

With reloading no longer ending a turn, pistols aren't even that necessary as a back up unless its a Sharpshooter, and they're the one class that has one.

No indications that you can. It might be a story unlock, but I doubt we'll get the 'torture for faster research' thing we had in EU. Which is a shame, dominating aliens so utterly by dragging back prisoners to a black site was so cool.

They're publishers, dude. What's on the box is more important to them than what's in the game. Whereas for the player, that's the only thing that's important. Nobody at 2K gives a fuck about whether Firaxis tie The Bureau into XCOM 2, and that's the only thing about canonicity that can affect you in any way.

Specialists have the highest hacking skills though, and are the only ones able to remote hack objects. Hacking objects can be done infinitely during any mission, and not only gives tactical mission rewards but can also improve your strategic game with resources and such.

that also sounds really good. total war used to have this "drop in" campaign option in which you could search for human players to play as the ai during a battle, but it was a toggleable option so you could chose to take part in that or not. they could pretty much do it exactly like that and just have some multiplayer option to play to search for any games in progress, join them and play as the aliens. it would be great, now im making myself sad cause i know it probably won't ever happen.

This was a part of his livestream, without editing the ini. It was boring as hell, because all his missions get a perfect flawless rating, expect one, where a rookie got wounded.

Compared with other streams, he got no advanced enemies in may and some HP of the enemies are too low. Additional, he edited the clear-up-times, so he got this resources and the buildings faster than it should.

So plot so far: The aliens are terraforming the planet. Presumably to convert Earth into something they're more familiar with.

Prior to the invasion they've seeded several drinking water sources with a bug/nanobot that allows them to control the organism that ingested it, humans included. These humans can then be "activated" to do their bidding, and after they've done whatever the invaders wanted them to do, they enter a deactivated state where they relive the last several minutes of their active state.

For humans who ingested the bug weren't activated, they develop flu-like symptoms until they begin to repeat the last few minutes of their behavior indefinitely until they waste away or starve to death

The game don't explain many things well, foremost not how to play the strategy layer well.
I watched many Xcom 2 videos too and it's almost the same there too. I bet many people lose their first game, because they didn't raid ADVENT facilities, because they didn't build the communication uplinks to expand an reach the facilities in time.
Instead they will scan every supply drop they see, and waste tons of time.

at what FPS and what settings?
i play xcom EW at 10-15 fps on this laptop

I saw some EW streams too and sadly people often don't read what they researched. For example, they see the picture of a laserweapon and it's header and after research they instantly try to build it. They miss so many stuff or forget them seconds later, it's hilarious.
But Xcom is all about a learning, so it's ok.

That machine slightly steps over the minimum requirements. So it could likely play the game on low-mid settings at around 40-60fps.

>>128799132
Dude, those "Can I run it?" sites are always bullshit, for one reason

The system requirments for games are pure bullshit

They always suggest shit like i-7 cpu's for example, when that doesn't even effect fucking performance

Can you run it?
Yes, of course you fucking can

Can you run it at 60 fps?
You find out, look up benchmarks for games and see for yourself

But from what I heard XCOM 2 does have some hefty slow down when lot's of destruction is going on

But considering that it uses the literal same engine as EU and EW, it shouldn't be hard to assume you will be able to run it at a reasonable setting, if you were able to do that in EU

Fuck those sites, fuck recommended system specs
>>
>>128799272

While it's heavily advised to have an A-team around, the game also suggests you level everyone in the roster because there are dispatch missions that you cannot go on. Some can only be completed by experienced agents.
