Balance of the game
« on: August 10, 2019, 11:59:51 pm »
Hey there!

I really enjoy the mod so far. But after a while, your 4 men squad get outnumbered in every mission (except the basic one with only 2 enemies). And with your low damage weapons, it gets tedious to try to take on larger humanish mission.

I would really enjoy to be able to use more agents on the field. I mean, you know you are going to attack a cult base and you park your van just in front of the 20ish cultish... That's a big/deadly tactical mistake.

I'm also concerned about the research. I've been looting many alien and MIB weapon but I can't research them. Is it voluntary?

So far the only way I've found to unluck new research is to pass time and get special mission. But those mission are fil with outstanding opponent with very good gear. They get couple of shot to the face, react, and I lose an agent almost every time..

Maybe I've miss something?

Something tells me you either haven't paid attention to any of the 'general strategy' briefings. It's somewhat obvious how you unlock larger vehicles if you follow the general guidelines. BTW, if you want to spoil yourself you can press q on the geoscape, that brings up the tech tree viewer - that way you can look up what items you're missing.

Also, what difficulty are you playing on?

I'm playing at Genious.

"Normal" mission are fine. It get very hard when facing "terror" mission. I have to use every wall to hide behind, otherwise *squick* hehe

So far I have 2 bases and I could build a third, got like 20B...

EDIT: Thanks for the hint (q), I Know exactly what I did wrong hehe

Glad to hear it.

Keep in mind that the mod isn't balanced for higher difficulties.

Oh I should be playing at veteran?

That could explain a lot of things! :)

Yeah, probably, at least if it is your first playthrough.
