Jane Kelly best waifu she survived the tutorial and helped me retake my command.
I don't have an autoloader yet, but I have +9% aim implant, +10% aim scope and +1 magazine size. I am also playing on Ironman Legendary.
I wish I could retrain him as a Ranger. This motherfucker is a beast.
I feel I need a better nickname to do him justice.

FIRAXIS QUALITY ASSURANCE
XCum 2 - Timer Wars
Experience thrilling gameplay as the retards who made this try to capture the call of duty audience by making every single fucking mission require you to sprint sprint sprint because every fucking mission has a fucking timer.
Want to work your sniper into a position where she can take advantage of her squad oversight? No fuck you, sprint towards the mission objective or you will fail.
good job firashit
I think the AWC can sort that out - if not instantly, then later on. See >>130968095
Yes. It does not fully make up for snipers being gimped by the turn pressure, but it helps.
Jane Kelly is confirmed to be bro tier. She saved the commander and doesn't afraid of anything
except for when the Faceless punched her face in, she panicked, ran away, blasted the fucker from halfway across the map, and came out of the mission with PTSD and the nickname "Iron Maiden". I'll fix it, Jane, I swear.
How do I mod Xcom 2? I know it has modding tools included but I can't find them.
Unfortunately sword need some love with their perks. For one boosting blademaster so that it gives +2 damage AND +10% to hit +20% to crit. Phantom is OP regardless though Rangers are the best scouts ever for my snipeys.
does it still have the same flaws as the XCOM EU/EW
Shit like enemies spawning after the mission already started behind your lines or snipers being useless or movement being in blocks instead of TU
My thoughts exactly. I am actually enjoying getting my shit pushed in as I have to now deal with a sense of urgency. I am no longer the meticulous defender, I am the hunted gorilla force.
Welcome to a new style of gameplay, I suppose. Adapt and overcome. What I mean, is, git gud.
Played some multiplayer. Seemed to work fine once I actually got into a match. Really not that much more different than xcom1, I didn't notice any big glitches, ovearl experience was pretty smooth.
Gatekeepers are bs gg
I'm actually loving the timers.
It fits the theme of oh shit hit and run attack!!!11!
the one thing that breaks it though is that once the objective has been achieved it switches to "Eliminate all enemies" DA FUQ.
It should be me hacking that computer and then black hawk downing it the fuck away from there, not me achieving the objective and then clear the area, it's not like im gonna build another base there.
>/v/ getting booty bombarded by turn limit
Post your favorite randomly generated soldiers. Be honest.
Maybe uninstall and go back to farmville where the timers are hours long.
Um pirate it? I used to pirate everything and pour money into hardware before I got a savings going.
when I tried to use the vision of squadmates to shoot from my sniper's further position, I still took an insane hit chance decrease, to the point where I wondered why snipers existed if they weren't for long range
shooting out of the sniper's vision just seemed like a waste of time due to how low the chance was
The delay is like 30s. I don't know, it didn't feel like watching the terrible preview match at all, much better.
No not yet. Its was just one match before going back to campaign. On a side note gunslinger snipers are not that great in pvp since you rarely have tons of targets and ammo isn't an issue. Also, armor crushes your soul.
>tfw wanted xcom 2 to be somehow better than EW
deep down I always knew newcom peaked in EW...
I'm not about to cry about them but time limits being standard aren't fun and run counter to playing methodical and tactical.
It feels like a wild overreaction to people using conga-lines and overwatch traps to get through all of XCOM1.
I'm in the tutorial and it told me to pick up the "unconscious/dead" body of the guy I rescued from the alien tank.
Soon as I tried to do that everything crashed so hard I had to manually shut down my PC.
I would argue the opposite, it makes the player have to play more methodical and tactical. With having to make every turn count, you have to make the upmost use of the limited actions you get. It requires you to master the concealment phase so you can close the gap quickly to the objective and clear out as many ayys as you can.
I like timers. Stops camping and beagle strats of taking an hour to do one mission. Puts the pressure on in a good way. When non timed missions come along it feels good like a mission where everythings by the numbers.
> Guile hair not available on the in-game character editor.
> It is if I'm on the main menu version though.
Guess I gotta make all my characters first, then play the game.
Gonna spend all fucking day making characters instead of playing the game.
These aren't randoms, but pregenerated soldiers from your default pool.
Protip: After you made a sizeable pool, delete your Default pool file and rename your exported pool to "Default".
>Psionics really isn't worth it is it?
Because psi dudes level in the facility rather than in combat you can get it mid game and just leave two rookies in there until you get psioperatives with all the good skills
I'm not a lying piece of shit, even with no obstructions, if I was shooting an ayy at twice my vision range, I had like 50% chance to hit
Maybe it gets better further down the game but I couldn't be fucked with it
Why is this a flank? It's not the first weird spot I've encountered
I was annoyed with it at first but I've gotten used to it.
It wouldn't hurt to add like another 1-2 turns to timers on average though. Unless you get godlike RNG then you need to be almost perfect just to WIN the mission and take no more than two turns per squad of enemies.
Where the fucking hell did my sniper learn to aim pistols?
Snipers have no mechanical penalty shooting with squadsight. Any poor aim is a result of a sniper being low level, them trying to hit targets in high cover, and/or having shit stats.
Thats why the terror missions are there, they are literally the middle ground.
If you complain about the timers, why not just edit them out? You're so shit just cheat the whole thing.
>EU/EW had a gorillion helmets
>its all dishrags and silly hats in 2
M-Maybe we'll get more after the DLC.
>PC exclusive AAA
>bugs out the ass
>runs like shit
thanks firaxis, more diversity and niggers in games, thats all what matters! It's 2016!
The time limit is the middle ground. Jesus Christ how slow are you? There's plenty of time in most of the missions to set up good ambushes, or move about to favorable terrain.
It seems like rookies die a lot more frequently in the beginning now.
I did my best anon, I even had 2 overwatches just in case the civvy turned out to be a faceless.
I really hope a relationship mod gets made.
>have a assault troops, make them brothers
>they always go on missions together, fuck shit up
>avenger gets shot down, everything goes to shit
>one of the brothers goes down, bleeding out
>race to carry him back to the evac zone
>dies in his brothers arms one last dash away
I was praying he'd get shaken will, it would have been so damn good
Sniper: Long range>pistol
Grenadier: Take from both because pure grenades has some shit abilities
That sound about right? I want to like pistol and sword but they fall off really quickly
>I used to always reward my squad with helmets once they earned colonel rank to show their badassery.
Sometimes I did the opposite though and gave all Corporals and below standardized helmets and colours, and when they hit sarge they got their own unique shit/removed the helm entirely.
Really reinforced the "grunt" aspect of things.
>>The literal shit in your posts reeks of a very sad person
Funny, I was thinking the exact same thing about you. Must be sad knowing that the best part of you ran down the crack of your mothers ass and left a stain on the mattress that only served to remind your father of why he left in the first place.
What an awful mission.
If you don't upgrade your weapons before this point, you could be fucked.
I suppose it could boil down to pistols on timer missions and long range on non-timer
My problem with pistols is that they never really seem to offer much that a ranger doesn't already do better
Enemy Within more or less fixed overwatch camping. Now they want you to play a turn based Call of Duty with a Xcom skin.
>Just to confirm that yes the optimization is horrible?
Put it this way: I am seeing fps ranges from 15 to 110 depending on what part of the game I'm in.
Something is fucking wack about what this game is doing under the hood.
Just a heads up, my PC isn't top of the line but XCom 2 runs just fine on it. It's not that the game is demanding, it's shitty optimization.
2k games, if you're in here, get on top of that.
>Xfags in love with Xcum: call of bradford :black guerilla ops 2
the average age in this general is probably below 20
The languages in EW were a bonus feature tacked on because they already had the localizations done and it was to easy to add in. I'm guessing Russia/Poland weren't very profitable regions for EU/EW so they didn't bother to give them dubs for 2. The only voices I think they explicitly added for customization's sake were the UK and Australian accents now.
I would play a shooter called Call of Bradford...
>in the game universe
Oh. Never mind then, I'm an idiot. Yeah, makes sense.
Did anybody else managed to complete first blacksite with no reloads and full squad on the very first try?
Feels like I got some super lucky sub 50% shots and that mech walked into a 3 man overwatch ambush dying before firing a single shell.
Codex felt like a small bossfight though.
Maybe it's because it's been over 2 years since I played vanilla EW but tech seems so fast this time around on sub-Legendary difficulties. I'm going to get mag weapons by mid April on Commander.
>too long, slow, or dull; tiresome or monotonous.
You mean without the timers its an overwatch camping game about RNG and savecumming til you can tell everyone you beat Impossible! That's tedious.
the mission i got codex on i'd already lost 2 of my squad to some unlucky crits and panics, and my ranger was on 2 health and my grenadier at 3 when i finally managed to run up and brainjack the officer. The moment the codex popped out I had my first Xcom 2 "NO THATS BULLSHIT" moment. It'll be a fond memory.
>/v/ IS REQUESTING IMMEDIATE EVAC
>an enemy gets a lucky hit past hard cover
>SUDDENLY TIME FOR TRIPLE FUCKING PANIC
Random panics are the dumbest fucking bullshit. It is literally the RNG fucking the entire mission at will. It does not matter how good your positioning is, there is no counter or justification to this bullshit.
If they had custom gear on them, you have to carry them back to keep it if you have to evac at the end of the mission. Wouldn't want to lose that acid grenade or exo suit from your dead grenedier
Well but why?
Why does it only follow the last soldier? It'd be more interesting if it followed random soldiers or something.
Or none at all unless they break through a window/door
Wouldn't be so bad if they did it like LW where they just hunker instead of sprinting out of cover, possibly running an overwatch and missing a shot
Welp, it didn't take long after those first armored enemies started appearing that I got my first squad wiped. Then I started to run out of capable troops and thought taking 4 rookies and a sniper to a moderate difficulty mission was a good idea.
I guess I'll restart on Veteran so I have a chance to win without savescumming.

FUCK. YOU. FIRAXIS. PUT A GODDAMN WARNING MESSAGE ON THAT SHIT
Is there any way to speed the game up? The delays on the animations are horrid
>those first armored
I just had my first one show up on an extract the ADVENT VIP mission. Luckily I have squad size at 5 and took him out on the first turn before he could cause any trouble. You know how great it is having 2 snipers? Probably as great as having 6 rangers would be.
>do first 6 missions on commander/ironmen flawlessly
>7th mission my experienced 5 man wiped because I meet stunsword troops
Lesson learned, stealth ambushing these fucks from a mile away next time.
Jesus christ. Why is everyone so damn ugly in this game?
>Race 0 Female = Ugly inbred "white"
>Face A = Eldery woman
>Face B = Ugly jewish girl? Weird features. Big nose and bat ears.
>Face C = Sub-human rat face.
>Face D = Pig face with fat negro lips
>Face E = THE ONLY GOOD FACE IN THE WHOLE FUCKING GAME
>Face F = Albino African
>Race 1 Female = Extremely hideous and cartoonish blacks
>Race 2 Female = Asians
>Face A = Typical pancake face 5/10 Asian girl
>Face B = is this even human? looks like a fucking alien
>Face C = Elderly version of face B
>Face D, E, and F = Ugly, ugly, ugly
>Race 3 = Arabs and Indians
>Face A = giant nose
>Face B and C = Ugly, ugly
>Face D = gorilla woman
>Face E = meh 4/10
>Face F = Elderly Arab woman
And then it gets even worse for the males.
>Race 0 Male = Whites?
>All faces are ugly and have crazy out of proportion features, either huge noses, weak chins, weak jawlines, or rat faces.
>Race 1 Male = Ugly black people again
>Race 2 Male= Chubby asian men and a few with uncharacteristically strong chins for an asian. Looks funny.
>Race 3 Male = Ugly Arabs and Indians
because it's the current year and firaxis is a progressive, resposible game company.
they don't want to represent women idealized and promote unrealistic beauty standards.
get over it.

Recommended Iron Man settings for someone replaying XCOM 1 again?
Only played about halfway when it came out and I save scummed like a bitch so now I want to play the game right.
Codex are the biggest bs. They are beyond the realm of unfairness.
I decided to run for it
after the second time it clonedand barely made it out.
Pic of my last guy carrying another to safety.
(there were 0 movement tiles to spare)
I like how this completely counteracts how I'd play XCOM EW, I'm finding it a pretty big challenge to get a game fucking started, let alone make some decent progress.
I don't want to drop from Commander difficulty like the filthy casual I am, though.
START POSTING THOSE MEMORIAL WALLS, I KNOW EVERYONE IS GETTING FUCKED IN THE ASS!
THATS XCOM BABY
>Blow out cover
>Squad misses every single shot on exposed enemies.
Male or female? I'm looking at the males right now and they're pretty goofy. Face A looks like his features were smashed together and made all tiny, Face B looks like Bill Cosby with fetal alcohol syndrome, Face C is weirdly effeminate and almost Asiatic, Face D and E look like they suffer from gigantism, and Face F is like a young and kind of feminine version of D and E.
Looking at the females now and A looks ugly but kind of normal for a black woman. B looks like a human prairie dog, C looks like a WE WUZ KANGS black nubian, D looks like a dark skinned arab mother, and F has an enormous chin.

Why the fuck is this shit so SLOOOOOWWWWWWWWW??!
Yeah. Kept telling me I'm missing some application that comes with the tool. Currently validating.
My disk usage just jumped 50+ MB/s so now the ETA is 15 minutes. Just validate it and hope your Hard Drive & Steam get out of the gutter.
I've never really played games of this type much in the past, is there any shame on playing on easy for this, a friend of mine has game shared with me and he is going away for some work, so I'll have access to this for a while and it does seem interesting.
I have played a fair bit of the previous game, but I never got that far, guess am a bit shit at turned based stuff.
Go ahead and start on easy to get the feel for it, learn how the game works.
After that you need to boost up the difficulty and put it on ironman. Otherwise you will get no respect here.
>Game keeps crashing on launch
It would seem the filthy Ayys are try to end this war before it's begun
>Long Dong 2: A Good Day To Dong
There's no shame in learning the game on easy, or enjoying it on easy. The only shame is acting like your soldiers are doing anything exceptional, or that you're playing really well.
And do keep in mind half the game's fun is dealing with loss, managing the consequences for your failures and preparing for the scary prospect of losing someone you've been relying on. None of this ever happens on easier difficulties.
The picture that the Nazis used to represent "sub-humans" is more attractive than the faces in this game.
How did they fuck this up so badly that the fucking untermensch guy looks like a male model in comparison to the male characters in xcom?
I'm spending far too much time dressing up troops before missions
I know on the previous game I did crank it to ironman once and hol-lee-fuck, I was bombed out of the water faster than the Tirpitz, I learnt to deal with loss quickly, followed by loss of game state.
Is it impossible to get rickety wrecked on lower difficulties, as you are talking to a special kind of turned base player here/
I always changed the ranks to things more reasonable
For instance, a Colonel is not ever going to be out in the field wrecking shit. I start em off as privates and they max out at master sergeant.
>Fat millennials spend so much time around other fat millennials that they've forgotten what humans are supposed to look like when they aren't 80lbs overweight and eating foods that are packed with xenoestrogens

>Healing Time Scan
>Base Engineer in Advanced Warfare facility to boost healing times
Doesn't really mesh with the context that Firebrand has a limited time frame to extract operatives from a mission lest she gets intercepted. Some unregistered vessel is totally not going to go as unnoticed as the small squad it just deployed
if you don't want to git gud just edit the .ini to give more time or disable it
Does it say this for anybody else's Jane?
>nigga this is like Game of Thrones, babies don't get names until their first birthday because so many of them die before reaching it.
>Thinking that this happened only in books.
Found a solution to the problem.
>instead of nerfing overwatch lets make every mission timed
So what ini i should edit to at least make it so that this shitty mechanic triggers only when you're detected?
>mfw 90% of my troops were criminals collecting war trophies off the dead
Better start preparing her for the ayylium invasion
Steam's overlay thing. Just hit F10 I think. I set mine as F12 and then on your Steam library page, it'll show you the pictures you've taken
>Jane is actually a transgender Ukrainian war hero called Sergey
No fucking wonder she slam jams everything so hard.
I hate this shit and nobody I've seen knows how to correct it.
I kind of doubt you can do that just by ini editing. You'll have to download the mod tools and try a little harder. Read some tutorials, fuck around with some files.
Or just wait for someone else to do it for you.
Yeah maybe not the best example, just got that stuck on my mind, sating my lust for watery cannon fights on another game in-between thinking about my possibly ass-whopping on tihs.
Is the turn limit that bad, I've been reading from screaming people on /v and this about it ?
Good to know Bradford is keeping his tradition of getting squads killed through his awful command alive and well.
>2nd character in and Im already making this
Booty shorts mod when?
>xcom was never about rushing fuckface
nice bomb defusal Beagle!
Game runs silky smooth on my maxed out MacBook Pro from Mid 2015 after i deactivated AA and Ambient Occlusion. Rest of the settings are still maxed out.
On "auto" checking the power of the rig, it maxes everything. By that i had like 3FPS in the main menu.
>sectoids can mind control your units
>sectoids can panic your units
>sectoids can revive the dead
>sectoids can revive your dead units against you
>sectoids have ranged attacks on top of that
to the developer's credit, at least they introduce this bullshit at the start of the game, so i don't have to waste time playing any longer
Technically he didn't command them, it was Lily (who isn't a military officer by any margin) commanding from the Avenger. Also, since it's scripted, it implies it's the rookies' faults they tried to be heroes and died unceremoniously.
>her biggest command accomplishment prior was getting herself captured because she wanted to tinker with ADVENT shit in broad daylight
Bradford needs to stay out of the field.
So, downloaded and now playing SEYTER repack. It seems there are no shady shit in this release, however I can be wrong. So far it is alright though.
Getting stable 40-60 fps on the machine in the picture. All drivers updated. All set maximum, except AA, which I have set MSAA. I was concerned about the general-wide whining about performance and although I agree that the game is not optimized at all, it is running well for me.
Finished tutorial without any issues (apart from half of the squad dying). Everything seems fine, I fear crashes.
Looks like Ayy is back on the menu boys. Fuck this ISIS shit, real XCOM is here.
I think you get 3 weeks to stall the Avatar progress once the timer is full, and it resets every time the bar is full after that.
But I've also seen people claim it's not a fixed timeframe, but depends on the time of the month. So you could get fucked if the bar fills up 2 days before the end of the month.
You just have shit luck.
I moved a unit with 2 hp left to secure a mission objective because I had no time left. The unit secured the objective but was flanked and surrounded by 3 enemies.
Dumb fucking sectoid panicked my unit and she ended up running out of the ambush, into full cover, and killing the nearest enemy.
Sweet sweet fucking luck.
Is it true that XCOM 2 can fry your hardware because of 100% CPU/GPU usage during turns? Anyone experienced this? Tornis is throwing a tantrum and now I'm worried the game will fuck up my hardware. I got decent aftermarked cooling on CPU and GPU though...
So been playing for a few hours, got a mission where I need to hack a thing before time yadda yadda yadda. I wipe two pods, hack the thing, then it tells me that I need to eliminate any remaining aliens.
I couldn't find them. Every turn I would move my squad towards the sound, at first slowly and methodically, then I was sprinting towards them. Every time I would hit a corner of the map, I would hear sound coming from the opposite direction. After an HOUR of just looking for these fucks, I didint care about my squad anymore. I split all four up, and sent them different directions, to get as much map coverage as possible. The sound triggers stopped, but still no aliens till I regrouped, then it started pinging again. I couldint take it anymore and sky rangered out.
Am I missing something? Do Aliens patrol in a way to avoid you? Do those shitty civs all over the map trigger the " Heard something " proc? Could a shape shifter be one of the shitty civs ina regular mission, and count as an objective? This mission almost killed my enthusiasm for the day.
Sorry anon, but I like admiral ackbaring ayy's

Seriously guys, I have over 1 TB of games installed in my steam folder alone. How did I upgraded hardware without replace HDD? I'm pretty sure just shoving the HDD in a new computer ain't gonna work.

I love it.
Man, a world without readily available S.C.O.P.Es is pure hell.
Sectoids are way too strong early-game. Fighting them is hoping that they waste their turns trying to raise corpses, otherwise if they MC one of your units that battle is almost always lost due to the investment needed to kill one.
So you're telling me I just go out, buy 3k worth of brand new hardware, rip out the OS drive, replace it with my 5 year old win 7 drive, and everything will magically just work? Minus drivers, I know I'll need to install those of course.
>I'm pretty sure just shoving the HDD in a new computer ain't gonna work.
Nigga thats pretty much exactly how it works. Making a computer is easy, pretty much everything is made to work with everything. Just make sure the case is big enough for the motherboard and card, the PSU is powerful enough to handle what you stick into it, and then it square wires into square holes. piece of piss mate.
A ranger and a specialist can usually kill one 4/5 times. Ranger runs in and swords the cunt, then the remaining 1-2 health is removed by the flying robot shock attack.
Also thank fuck >>130976953 is right, I damn near shit my pants every time because I think the ayy is just going to shoot my guys, but instead he thinks "Y'know what totally works in xcom? Meatsheilds." like the infusion of swole made them fucking retarded.
Anyone else recreating their old Long War characters as if
they actually existed and the computer games you were playing while on ice were simulating the actual characters from old X-COM?
I usually just sword them up the butt when they do that.
>first encounter with a sectoid
>she flanks the accompanying soldiers and vents one
>other soldier goes to move
>Kelly was in overwatch
>cacks him too
>comes out of panic and guts the sectoid next turn
More like kektoids
You must be playing on a lower difficulty.
A ranger running to chop up a sectoid is far far too dangerous. They're almost never alone, which means that your ranger is going to be flanked and destroyed early game.
>Is it true that XCOM 2 can fry your hardware
>because of 100% CPU/GPU usage during turns?
No. It only fried AMD because Nvidia game works.
Is there a way to switch my sharpshooter rank 1 to ranger? I don't see anything like this in my guerilla school.
I really hope there is a way.
