Got the 2 of you added.
I have our gym and increased squad size to 5. Somebody needs to be promoted to Captain for the next squad increase. Also, grabbed us a bonus 25% xp from kills. So, lets get out there and kill some poo poo!

So I spaced out hard and forgot to do the important thing and am going to have to restart the game. Lol, I kinda ignored the core aspect of the game.

I hate the stress you out doomsday clock they added to xcom2, it made playing it not enjoyable for me. Which is a shame because I fuckin loved all the shadowrun re-issues. I like those tactical turn based squad combat games.
That said, put me in and give me a shotgun!

Each soldier gets xp from missions and get promotions. Ranks pretty much only decide how many skills everyone has.

Yea, I for some reason was thinking it was waves. The clock is a jerk for most of the game.

Ok. Still a few people getting rotated into service, but I've been getting people mixed in awhile working on recruiting. So far we're staying ahead of the timer and working on contacting other places in the world to get the most missions.

lol, 2 people miss a sectoid and then the next round all 4 do. Luckily nobody died, but the 6 misses in a row made it pretty sketchy.

Skinny aliens with psychic powers. Real pain in the rear end when they mind control someone on the team, but normally they just eat some bullets while raising zombie aliens.
There are way worse enemies, but these ones are more annoying than dangerous.


bonus: Can't remember who it was. But I was going to be so mad if this shot missed.

Rude names are hilarious until someone wonders why Dick Butts is a character in your game.
I did Ironman one time and it was surprising how many people were named nesaMDoom in their world.

Super iffy mission. UFO hunted us down. Got everyone in overwatch because we got the thing broken, but I don't want to leave someone stuck and they are stunned with drop ships coming in. Throwing a smoke grenade and setting people out to draw fire. Now some people are knocked out. Getting people to grab them while trying to get back to the ship and get out of here.
sbhermit almost died there and a lot of the team is busted up, but we bloody did it. Everyone got out alive and there's 22 less aliens in the world.
Congrats B33rChiller for getting to Captain. we'll be able to bring 6 on missions now.

*spits tobacco juice* Medals aren't for soldiers. Medals exist to appease the consciences of military brass who can't remember what it feels like to hold a rifle. A real soldier needs only one award: the words "Mission Accomplished" at the bottom of a debriefing report. Have you seen a single alien with medals pinned to its chest? They do not indulge in the foolishness of ceremony.

One of my fave things of this game is you can't just bullshit your way. 6 sharpshooters, bangbangbangbangbangbang every round. Roles are cool as gently caress. Specialists get to remote hack target computers, lookout towers, enemy robots, etc. It's a cool role that is able to change based on the gremlin updates. oh yea, your drone is a gremlin(please feed it at night with lots of water) and they kick rear end. Rangers get to gently caress off around the area and just blast poo poo or cut them down while ignoring such trivialities as being shot at. Sharpshooters get a cool choice of being a pistol champ with a bigass rifle that can one-shot or focusing on doing nothing until a motherfucker moves halfway across the map near a friendly and then put them right down. Rangers have a mix of run right up and blast one alien in the face then gently caress back off to cover and walking through a whole rear end sight the hit the target and either bail or sacrifice(not fan of losing people so the sneak while everyone else slips around is best). Grenadiers are a fun mix of opening the fight by blasting several enemies and their cover, to uh... getting into position then loving up everything. They also run crowd control.

This is a good team we got and many alien asses will be kicked in the forward times.
I'll try to remember screen grabs. it's such a long way to play that full recording is unthinkable with my storage.

Don't know what's with the audio, but one person couldn't make it all the way to the evac. A drop ship was coming in, so we had 4 wait behind in overwatch for the turn the person had to wait to get to the evac. Drop ship came in and all the aliens got blasted before getting to do anything. Good work.

Pretty sure I hosed up the loadout by not thinking for the last mission. Guess we'll find out in the video.

Sadly, we lost someone on the last mission. I'll update everyone on the next post, but they did the job and made sure we let everyone in the world know how poo poo these aliens are.

sbhermit was caught using performance enhancing stims, good loving job. That's the way to help the world survive.
infrared35 burned to death in a mission to take over the alien communications network and reveal their bullshit to the world.

For anyone interested or that doesn't know what xcom is, I'm posting the second to last mission now. This mission only let 3 come with and it's a pain, but we did it and gently caress them extraterrestrial bastards. No loving phone home ET, eat shot and die!

I'd like to thank everyone for their efforts and the part they played in saving the world.

Last mission video is coming. The last one is a 23GB file so the edit is gonna be a bunch and will come after some work. We won And anyone that wants can watch. I'm editing it down to 2 versions. one dramatic as gently caress because it was a fun one and then I'm gonna just wack one into hyperspeed

I don't have the internet or patience for the hour an half end fight getting to youtube yet. I'll post the end, it came down pretty close. Thanks everyone for joining and helping save the friggin' world.

Here is the end of the mission/campaign. A sped up version of the whole fight will be at the bottom of the post.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RBucT9WIUFw

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

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.
The final mission had watho, barnold, baka of lathspell, sbhermit, B33rChiller, and RavenousScoot.



Sorry for the poor decisions that got some people killed.
Also, I'd skip this video or atleast turn off audio. it's 8x speed so it's disorienting to watch anyways.
