I would turn on Ironman because I want to have losing be part of my learning curve and also legitimately see the game over screen, but I am worried about stability issues with a new game.

Plenty of people have beaten launch EU and EW on Iron Man no problems. If the game bugs out save and reload, if that doesn't fix it then just remember and sometimes war isn't fair!

They've never had to experience turn 1 blaster bombs inside of the Skyranger and save corruption shortly after

Well that goes without saying! The first time I played original X-COM was the PS1 port without an instruction manual, so I didn't even know what half the buttons on the bottom of the screen did. Still had a great time with it.

I would love to see an XCOM 94 style mod, where your soldiers are all just generic grunts and get most of their stats/abilities from gear that you unlock. Might be cool to combine that with the Advanced Warfare School to still give them a chance to develop special abilities as they level up, or even more advanced mods where a soldier's experience and rank are totally separate. Maybe instead of sending Rookies to the Guerrilla Warfare School you send experienced troops to turn their acquired levels into chances to develop class abilities.

Then Bronzeman it. Geoscape: Save at the start of each month, use that if you outright loose or your game gets corrupt. In-mission: Save at the start of each mission, you cant restart unless your entire squad dies. Don't run your dudes to get killed "because Jenny "C'mon & Slam" Ronaldson died", play it as it falls down.

Hahah yes...no more kiting chryssalids and: "Oh good, they used up their first move getting to within a few steps away from that soldier. Now they'll just move once more and not do poo poo." Rules of Nature apply to them now, same as blade-wielding folks and gawd will that be something to factor in now.

I imagine this will also finally make them actually useful in multiplayer, unlike in EU.

To be fair, 'dash then attack' is something all melee attackers can do. Your ranger can do it. ADVENT Stun Lancers can do it.

... Presumably Muton Berserkers can, too. Oh god.

The overwatch came didn't seem to work as it did before. Did they turn it off? When someone ran into overwatches, things just hung for a while until someone off screen started shooting.
