It's a little silly that dudes can get "tired" for over a week, but it works.

Yeah, it's one of the best and most annoying changes at the same time.  "But, damnit, I NEED Jane and Warhawk on this team. Why's she more tired than him, they're buddies!"

I forgot to build a resistance relay the first two months. I might be fucked.  Avatar project at 5 and I still have two zones to unlock to get to the second black ops site with 8 days left to build the comms. Good news is the Assassin is no longer a problem. She dies like a bitch now that I have mag weapons and a few snipers with squadsight.

I ran into an odd bug last night.  My 3rd ranger hit Sgt and I couldn't pick Shadowstep. The UI simply wouldn't let me so I had to pick the less-awesome "+attack/ +crit from stealth" trait.  Anyone else run into this?

Yes, I had that bug.  I just skipped the promotion (it happened to me after a mission) and then promoted them from the barracks.  That worked.

I thought it was just me.

Yeah, that's been happening since launch, but its only on the after mission screen. Just skip the promotion and do it later.

I have had some trouble finding the active box to click a couple of times, but eventually dialed in and got it done.

All 3 Chosen down. Man, once your Reaper gets banish it becomes pretty easy to one-round Chosen. The hunter went down like a chump, moreso than the first two.

I do like I don't have an A-Squad or B-Squad now though. I really just mix and match to cover my bases. I'm just now bothering with the Codex Brain/Stasis Suit shadow chamber research because I kept getting really good breakthroughs. Doom Ticker is a complete, complete non-issue now. The only thing that can destroy you at this point are really shitty council missions since those seem to be throwing phalanxes of Sectopods/spectres/etc at me.

Did you modify the Reaper's rifle with +4 ammunition?  Banish is ridiculous.

I found at the end of the game that the sniper's pistol abilities were surprisingly useful, too.  It was well worth spending extra points to max out both trees on one of them.

Pistol is very useful now, yeah.

Multiple Spectres and Sectopods in the same reveal is about the only thing that makes me think hard in the late game.

Warlock showed up for the first time in a Retaliation mission. He futzed around a bit...and then got 1-rounded by a swarm of low-level defenders; I never had to engage him with my own team.

Also, some of the expanded training opportunities are incredible. I now have a Ranger with Serial - just slapped a superior expanded mag and superior laser sight on his gun, dropped in some Talon Rounds, and watch him go to town in crowds. Also, being able to buy both trees on a single Specialist is pretty great.

Taking control of Sectopods is the most fun you can have with your pants on. If you are wearing pants when you do it, at least.

I still prefer dominating gatekeepers and using them as wrecking balls to just smash up the map.  'Cuz they're pretty damn useless in combat.

Except for last night when it popped up late in a Lost-infested mission, and used its mass reanimation power on the 30-ish dead zombies laying around the group  ACK!

I barely had enough firepower with line-of-sight of it to one-round the thing to death.  The game still got twitchy after that; I don't know if it was the number of active troops in such a small area or sorting out what was undead/dead/not-dead again/back to dead.

I haven't managed a Gatekeeper yet. They just terrify me so I kill them as quickly as possible.

Have had some fun with Domination too. Archons are amusing to use, but I wanna try one of the huge berserker guys to Kool-Aid around the map.

Pistol-slinger snipers with the darkclaw and venom rounds can fuck up a whole screen worth of enemies.

I just got some venom rounds for one of my sharpshooters and he killed one of the giant berserker dudes in one round with Lightning Hands/Rifle/Pistol.

It makes me a sad that rapid fire doesn't use squadsight.

What makes me less sad are pimped-out plasma rifles on specialists, who can get auto-oversight on double moves + guardian for extra shots.

Or Serial on a ranger - that's a lot of fun.

Seeing as this is a second playthrough, I kept the difficulty on normal (though still ironman), so this is more about fun than anything else. At this point, I'm really just playing with advent - getting every crazy weapon upgrade, including 3 attachments and higher damage mods. I finally got a Spark, and I think he's rank 3 now, though I'm not convinced they're better than normal troops. I'm enjoying the faction heros as well, who are often at least partially better than normal troops...though the way I equipped Mox, he's often better than a normal trooper.

I used my Spark once and never repaired it. Troops are a lot better. Although at higher difficulties it would be nice to have basically a replaceable combat unit I guess.

They are better than normal troops in that they don't get tired so you can take them on mission after mission. Also shred armor by default and overdrive is awesome once you take the perk that gets rid of the penalties. They are crazy expensive though, 200 just to build one and their upgrades cost just as much as full roster upgrades for all your other troops which makes them cost prohibitive.
