I really liked Long War 2, but the problems that the game itself had were many and anoying. I’m currently playing through LW2. Frustrated that rookies have so little health and are liable to being one-shot crit hit by a sectiod? That's a ton of of enemies easily 20+ and if it includes multiple high threat aliens your in for big trouble. I had around 175 hours into xcom2 when I heard about LW2. When they go out on missions, they are deliberately going out on a mission and taking weapons. Feeling like you’re not very connected to the world and it’s fight against advent?

Once a haven has been liberated, it stops generating new missions. Haven Invasions will happen if Advent can get sufficiently high Advent Strength moved into an adjacent region. ), and can lead to some seriously aggravating gameplay. If you’re not a fan of any of the changes, there are mods that modify some parts of LW2, like I linked above; I’d definitely suggest looking at them. I’m certainly convinced LW2 is a better experience.

From crashes to memory leaks to "stuck under Avenger bug" this was one of the most unstable games I've ever played. Rebels will immediately be available for work when discovered while soldiers will become available in the recruitment list aboard the Avenger. Very unrealistic and frustrating! I'd thought that when they upgraded their weapons, the resistance people could gain weapons as high as one tier below the highest you have. All rights reserved. chritopher_keith.

And that’s only after you activate them - they could be standing right next to an ADVENT trooper and not be doing a thing. What I do have a problem with is that after he’s been literally trying to take shots at my squad all mission, he still gets a free activation action when I get within vision range of him for the first time. 1. Beside prepare to commit over 100 hours at least to see the end game. For example, mind control is much less of a problem because everyone starts with a flashbang grenade, and grenade cover destruction is much less unrealistically good because standard grenades don’t destroy cover (if that sounds alarming, be assured there are new abilities that allow you to wreck cover or hit enemies anyway).
