    You know, it would be pretty cool (100% probably not part of the game though) if you had to manage rebel forces all across Earth in the meta game. So while you had your super elite squad that you control, you could send pilfered supplies, weapons, money, etc. to various rebel forces who slowly grow in influence and eventually destabilize the alien regime. Would make the battlefields and full revolutions be more, you know, plausible.
    I want multiple squads that you can deploy simultaneously to different missions. It's not 1 squad with 93 other soldiers sitting in the barracks with their thumb up their ass that way.

    Maybe where its like you can send multiple squads and you control one squad directly in the tactical overlay while the others, based on ranks and gear equipped, have a certain percentage to succeed or fail/live or die.

    I would rather control all of them, so once you finish the mission with one squad it goes onto the next. That would remove having to make a choice of which country you help, but it might work in xcom 2. Just a guess of course.

    I'd like to see more Covert Operations stuff where you send one or two guys off to spread propaganda or spy on Advent and then sometimes they take heat and need extraction.

    RNG's obviously part of the game but it's always shitty to lose good troops to autoresolve.
    Would be nice to see some action other than your chosen 6 combating the alien threat tho.

    I don't really think I want to manage more squads honestly but your reserve troops definitely need something to do.

    Um. I copied my entire XCOM Steam folder over from my notebook to my desktop and also copied the saves from the game, and went back to playing (deleting the old XCOM folder on the desktop, without steam noticing the shuffle) . The game runs, but some things went very, very wrong.

    The first anomaly I noticed is that the drum mags which you have infinite of in Long War by default and are thusly worthless on the market, are worth 48 credits a piece on grey market... so, infinite money for me. Long War was never fair, so I will take it. For once it's unfair for the aliens.

    It still goes downhill from here. People randomly lost some of their perks, almost everyone is eligible for low level promotion and for some reason, no matter who is it, one of the three options in the promotion is Pyrokinesis (I don't even have psy lab yet).

    Edited:

    Also in combat I found out a perfectly plain and normal chick on my team has Reactive Sensors now.

    Too bad fun Brad is gone and he got redesigned into something else. I'm still hoping he has cool lines, but he looks a lot more serious and his voiceacting is something straight out of a Battlefield 4 objective announcer, so I wouldn't really count on it.

    This probably means you have a higher version of Long War installed, and you opened up an older version save. (Example: Your game is B15F, while save is B15C or something of the sort.) Essentially, this happens when they move around perk positions to make room for other ones, like Dead Eye a few months ago. Some of your soldiers are eligible because some of the perks they had are moved/don't exist anymore and the game resets it so you can promote them again.

    Nah I'd want full control over the missions and it'd add a whole new dynamic to the game.

    You have 3 missions to chose from and 18 soldiers. But you only have 6 colonels and 20 rookies (i know bare with me me ).

    You can take on as many missions as you want. you can put all your eggs in 1 basket and send all 6 colonels on a single mission to 'guarantee' you'll succeed while you ignore the other 2 missions. OR you send 2 rookie teams on suicide missions, or you split your colonels up to lead 3 rookie teams out in the field.

    You can then add in squad leader benefits which increase rookie performance but absolutely destroys morale if they die in the field. Or perhaps a squad experience system which gives minor passive bonuses the more successful they are. Like each squad member confers 5% reduction from critical hits for every 5 missions the squad survives without fatalities.

    Deployment / extraction time would also be a factor too so you can have missions come up while teams are still RTB. Then you can have missions where a skyranger gets shot down and you have to send out another squad to rescue the survivors giving you 2 squads to control at once. from different start points. There's a lot they could do with the multiple teams idea. I just feel that the computer handling your soldiers is too much RNG.

    Well I figured something like that must have happened but I don't get it, because I had 15e on the notebook the save comes from and I have 15e on the desktop I am on, and most importantly, I have copied both the save and the game files from one computer to another without any other manipulation so I don't get how could this happen.

    I hope environmental destruction is a bit more in-depth. Luring berzerkers under an RF:G-esque mountain held up by a few remaining breadsticks, then blasting the remaining supports to make some red pancake would be amazing.

    I actually found it really weird that there was no gore in XCOM, specially since it's Unreal and you have lots of simple gore frameworks already done to use as a guideline. Even a small 5-point gib system would've been enough for me.

    Doing an Iron Imp run and so far iv'e aced every mission and haven't lost a single soul coming up on the end of the 2nd month. No idea how I've managed to pull it off but i scraped by on that bastard of a mission ,Portent the one where you gotta escort the exalt guy while fighting thin mints. 16 of them them.

    Game decided that'd be my 4th mission which is painfull. thankfully with a lot of luck and knowledge of the 2 man pod spawn points i was able to get explode the mints and finish off with RNG gunfire. I did it with basic Armour and weapons, no sniper. and my highest rank being a corporal heavy with 2 squaddie assaults and a support. literally 1 square at a time movement took me hours.

    And yet it's all pretty much pointless at this point because i can't do anything to stop nations leaving X-Com, bloody annoying.

    let me just stop you right now and say no it was never just 1 or 2 posts talking about snake tits, not to mention the initial announcement of the snakewoman basically killed the thread for about 10 pages straight
    Y'know, maybe people should be allowed to say what they feel? It ain't hurting anybody, really. No need to censor. It's silly.
    I'm really happy because what you guys are describing is basically a 3d Liberal Crime Squad with more lasers and aliens.
    Oh, hell yeah. I'd play that.

    Maybe someone could totally convert this game, if it's tools are as open as they say?

    Hi this is the XCOM thread not the WTYO thread. The topic is XCOM, not how much you jack off to snakes with tits. It's not censorship, it's called consider the goddamn topic of the thread and feelings of everyone browsing it.
