Started a new XCOM 2 game and will add people into roles so that BYOB will be the ones saving the world.

I'll add people a bit randomly unless I happen to know stuff. No customization(unless you specifically ask for an option, which are limited), so you might just be anyone, but I'll try to write a short bio(you can if it's not very long). Assigning people to rookies early game seems the best way to go and then you'll just get promoted to roles based on rng and/or whatever system is in place for that. But there is no problem with requesting a type of role and if it's open, it's yours.

Enlist here and help take the planet back from the aliens that, I can't remember the lore, took over the planet somehow.

I'll probably just be doing a couple missions a day. I don't have ironman on, so nobody dies harder than we can save them(you still might get shot up in the service of byob saving the whole loving world). I can give some status updates along the way. if anyone gets some spectacular saves or kills then videos might be added.

I'll keep track of the roster below
Roster:
RavenousScoot - Ranger, 11 Missions, 27 Kills
B33rChiller - Specialist, 15 Missions, 24 Kills
Buttchocks - Sharpshooter, 7 Missions, 10 Kills
sb hermit - Grenadier, 9 Missions, 14 Kills
Nosfereefer - Ranger, 5 Missions, 3 Kills
Fredrik1 - Grenadier, 5 Missions, 7 Kills
barnold - Grenadier, 10 Missions, 11 Kills
infrared35 - Specialist, 6 Missions, 10 Kills
Captain Log - Ranger, 5 Missions, 8 Kills
Tyro - Sharpshooter, 4 Missions, 4 Kills
FutonForensic - Specialist, 4 Missions, 7 Kills
Chrs - Sharpshooter, 3 Missions, 6 Kills
Flakey - Ranger, 7 Missions, 11 Kills
baka of lathspell - Specialist, 5 Missions, 11 Kills
watho - Grenadier, 7 Missions, 15 Kills
Finger Prince - Sharpshooter, 5 Missions, 9 Kills
fps_nug - Specialist, 7 Missions, 10 Kills
Doctor Dogballs - Ranger, 5 Missions, 13 Kills

Those are the final stats before the last 2 missions. Won't let me see the end numbers for everyone.
infrared35 was lost on the network mission. On the final mission we succeeded, but it was a full squad wipe.

XCOM:Enemy Unknown - Enemy Within
Flakey - Mec Trooper, 15 Missions, 33 Kills
calhoun - Sniper, 17 Missions, 43 Kills
Fredrik1 - Support, 15 Missions, 25 Kills
RavenousScoot - Mec Trooper, 16 Missions, 52 Kills
infrared35 - Mec Trooper, 14 Missions, 41 Kills
Finger Prince - Sniper, 10 Missions, 17 Kills
B33rChiller - Mec Trooper, 16 Missions, 50 Kills
sb hermit - Mec Trooper, 14 Missions, 30 Kills
watho - Mec Trooper, 15 Missions, 31 Kills
Tyro - Heavy, 22 Missions, 46 Kills
Nosfereefer - Sniper, 11 Missions, 15 Kills
Chrs - Mec Trooper, 14 Missions, 30 Kills
Buttchocks - 17 Missions, 23 Kills
FutonForensic - 16 Missions, 22 Kills
Captain Log - Mec Trooper, 14 Missions, 28 Kills
fps_nug - Assault, 16 Missions, 29 Kills
baka of lathspell - Support, 21 Missions, 31 Kills
barnold - Sniper, 10 Missions, 15 Kills
Doctor Dogballs - Sniper, 511 Missions, 14 Kills

Live posting a mission update. B33rChiller is still napping, but Rav saved my life with a nade to the only alien that had a shot on me when I busted outside and had to flashbang and hide. unnamed rookie wrapped around the building and caught the other one. everyone is doing fine.

Buttchocks

No, I like my hat, thanks.

Well... things didn't work quite well. I retried the mission a couple times because I kept losing people. Buttchocks made the mission work out, but I died. I'll deal with that when I remember how to get me back.

Buttchocks got promoted to a sharpshooter. congrats sq
Rav got promoted to corporal and learned Phantom, basically has to openly walk up and slap an alien to be noticed even if everyone else is shooting

Can't be bothered to run a mission over. so, i'm dead. Hopefully the kid avenges me.

Will add you both at base.
Mission Failing Moon successful with no deaths.
sb hermit got promoted to grenadier. you've got a lot of 'splosions in your future. Buttchocks got a skill to shoot people that his friends can see, pretty much wallhacks.

We have enough people for a 4 squad mission. good luck

B33rChiller finally got uninjured and went out, to successfully hack the target. Promoted and unlocked the skill to remote heal. Nosfereefer was promoted and now fires back when shot at. barnold got the opening shot with a nade launcher and made the group easy clean up for the team. :lol: RavenousScoot was just standing on a van in plain sight until poo poo started blowing up, then they noticed the obvious enemy right next to them.

My eyes roamed over the table covered with hardware, until they settled on a familiar old friend. I picked up the Benelli M1 tactical shotgun and felt the intuitive balance of it, and the familiar ergonomics. I performed a quick chamber check. It was loaded.

“This’ll do. Reginald Chatterworthy, at your service.”

Adding Captain Log, it's questionable if they requested(but asking about things that totally work in game works), and infrafrared35(tip your fedora, go to war). Just hooked Rav up with a laser sight that gives 10% crit chance, improving with proximity. So, blast away. We are about to go out on a mission.

Also, if anyone asks, I'll put a name on your weapon.


RavenousScoot posted:

It was a great example of why I like that skill. You pretty much only got noticed, like 20 feet away standing on a van, because when the grenade round blew up the aliens moved and you were in overwatch and broke cover to blast one. All of the classes get super cool stuff, but in the end sharpshooters finish most kills.

Awesome mission. Captain Log blasted some people and chopped one down with a sword, earning a promotion and bonus sword damage. infrared35 hacked the info and everyone made it out alive.

I can only add one til I get supplies. I'm on a forced mission I've wiped a couple times. Going to work on it when I get back home and then recruit some more slots and work on building more armour. Some big alien project is about to finish and we're going to need to upgrade the base so we can send out 6 people at once. Progress on upgraded weapons is coming along well and we're almost to upgraded basic armour and then with advanced armours it'll be pretty good to stay alive. B33rChiller is our only combat medic, so I'm going to have to get better medkits or get someone else doing that role too.
So far some pretty funny moments have happened. Having an alien jump through a window and be in sight of someone on overwatch and then getting shot right back out the window was a pretty funny one I think I saved video or gif.
That's an update since I've been busy and not working on missions today.

Got banned, lost sig.

nesamdoom

nesaM killed Masen

Had an idea, used magic to roll back to pre-mission and make some changes that let me get some recruits. Everyone is in now. After this big event I should be able to do more missions where people can level up and it's less crazy.

nesamdoom

nesaM killed Masen

That was dicey as gently caress. Rav almost got dead from the first civ saved(ended mission with 1hp after being healed), luckily almost everyone had a medkit. sbhermit in an EXOsuit pretty much held the whole thing together. Accuracy in this game is a joke. missing from 4 feet away is ridiculous. and 2 friggin civs ended up being these aliens that morph into human shape. That was close and really, I'm looking forward to some easier missions soon. 3/4 came out hurt. but nobody died.

Buttchocks

No, I like my hat, thanks.
Behold, I am the Foe-hammer of Earth.
Aliens shall kneel before me and learn the meaning of loss.
My song is the whisper from the shadows that brings eternal darkness.
Though the Fates abandon me in statistical mockery,
I shall prevail by shooting lots and lots.

I'll update stats in the morning. I'm too tired to do more. progress is being made, but sometimes it's laterally.
buttchocks, know that you are raining shots from the heavens.

nesamdoom

nesaM killed Masen

After the current mission a big event should be popping. The upgrade for more soldiers on the field is under construction. Once it's done I will be instituting a 'training, totally not babysitting' initiative to boost some of the people that have gotten less missions and are lower ranked, so get less missions. Endgame I want everyone to be so used to killing aliens that you subconsciously shoot one while eating a sandwich and nobody else notices either. Also, I'm remembering how to run the missions better with things like squad selection for roles, slowing down and not getting someone womped by busting into a place solo, and some of the paths to upgrading things to get us ready for the big fights later.
