XCOM 2
« on: March 03, 2017, 12:20:43 pm »

Bought it a few weeks ago based on the popularity.  I love turn based strategy games so I figured I'd love it.  I won my first unmoded game last week.  Now I'm using the Long War 2 mod.  Boy is it hard.  Anyone else play this that can give me some good pointers?  I can't believe the way I'm always out numbered sometimes two or three times over.

love that game, I did play through the campaign on one of the harder levels, but haven't really done pvp.

saving is important especially when you are outnumbered and out powered.

I think there are 4 save slots so I used one for in base between missions and one for the start of each mission and two for in mission slots.  (you have to disable autosave).  that way you can try out a few different strategies.  sometimes thinking outside of the box as allowed me to overcome overwhelming odds.

In think after doing some research and watching a few youtube videos I have a better understanding of the Long War 2 mechanics.  The main thing I wasn't understanding was the infiltration concept.  Now that I have that down I'm not getting my butt kicked as bad.
