You might want to start using one or two Marsec torso plates again just so that you can have a few guys who can teleport absolutely everywhere.
I was going to ask what you thought of throwing a couple Marsec suits into the mix (when I mentioned that in the video it was directed towards you ). I haven't looked at the defense rating of them versus the disruptor armor but as long as I have shields it doesn't really matter, right?
You need to research the ships in order in addition to the UFOs. So it's better to focus your research on the Biotrans first, then work on the UFOs until you unlock the Explorer, Retaliator and then Annihilator. That will also give you something to make while you wait for the next ship. For the UFOs, work your way up from the lowest UFO number.
Is the Biotrans worth making, or should I just wait for the Explorer, Retaliator, and annihilator before I start constructing the new ones?
If you can't drum up enough troops, you should still go and investigate but instead take a much more defensive and relaxed approach to the missions to tide you over until you can rebuild your team and/or pack shields.
Things are rather grim but at least I have cash, I think as long as I can get some recruits in before I have a base defense I might be alright.
I've been rewatching some of my more successful (and not so much) missions and I think I might finally be learning a thing or two about how to deal with RT. Things typically seem to go well when I can get into a proper position and can defend a spot (from a proper distance), it's when I have to go in searching is when I get annihilated.
Problem is I'm still clueless as to how not to get annihilated when moving in and searching for the remaining ones...
The shields are going to help you heaps. However, considering your troop loss rate so far, I think you'll need to reorganise your kit so that you can carry two shields in your backpack. Just for the extra security.
Woo! I did something smart without having to hear from you first!
Backpacks loaded with shields, let's put them to the test...

At this stage I'm not sure you need second base. You have everything you need and the next thing you will only produce in quantity is Disruptor Armour. Then it's only Annihilators.
I figured it could come in pretty handy to have it around though, if I end up getting into a rough patch again I should be able to crank out shields/armor/craft quickly enough to save me... plus, I have lots of cash at the moment.
Here's the next one:
Do you think equipping missiles (prophets/janitors) onto all my bikes would be wise and worth the money, or do I have a new craft coming soon enough?
