Mucho funo Silencer! And you're there as well
My new roster consists of Pete, myself, Lysear, BombBloke, Sunflash, BladeFireLight, NKF, Fullauto, Jman and of course Tammy fills the token female trooper spot
You'll notice that's only 10 as the 4 new ones are currently unnamed but Silencer one of them is destined to be you
I lost my third tank to plasma fire last night so I've decided it's beyond their time now and I won't be buying anymore. We're currently at the stage of Power armour and plasma rifles for the goodguys with the obligatory alien nades in hand. I'm researching up to craft plasma cannons but of course I can't get them until I nab me a heavy plasma (I think Lysear is researching them now though) Flying suits will be finished soon but that will by no means be a game winner. Playing a human opponent is very different to any AI in the original and it's much harder than superhuman in the tactical segments!
Anyway I'm going to be taking applications for a new roster soon as we'll be attempting a 2-sided AAR once we finish this game which could be very interesting! Never before have you had a chance to cheer on the aliens
We'll start a new thread for it to stop spamming up this one so keep a look out for it and send in your name and profile for selection. I want at least 50 troopers for the roster so I need everyone there is!
I almost forgot to mention the warcrime of the century as it happens... Someone send NKF in here, he'll want to hear this...
The last mission we played yesterday was a landed Abductor and it was by far the best so far. It was a farm map with lots of buildings plenty of cover and 11 floaters to my 14 men. We had similar weapons too but my power armour made it hard work for Lysear and he had to try and sneak up close to autoshot me to death
Anyway, after an early stunbomb took 2 troopers out of action he managed to appear in a window directly above one trooper and killed him with a 3 shot burst. Turns out he'd shot himself which we both found highy amusing!
A second death was our Sunflash who had made a stunning job of flanking the UFO in the NW corner of the map butLysear being a human opponent was wise to this and the cowardly alien leader was waiting for him with death from above
The only other human casualty was I am sad to say, a friend to us all... Poor NKF... He formed part of the firing line back near the ranger and he was knocked out with a stunbomb one turn. Ok fine, I can live with that. Next turn however we spot an alien sniper in the window to the west and he shoot NKF's unarmed, unconscious body and kills him!!!
I call warcrime on you sir! How dare you take my NKF away from me! Now I'll have to rename a whole extra soldier lol
