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...
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?
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.
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?
Since your relations with the Cult has always been at rock bottom. It's not going to do any damage at all to go door knocking at each of their temples. Don't raid though as you will not clear the infiltration. I'm thinking it's the temple right next the mall you just cleared.
You were right again. In the next couple episodes I tried changing my stance outside the UFO like you recommended... you were right there too
Or you could take a short break from strategy and try your hand at something else. Perhaps some quick games you can play in short bursts.
I'm planning on taking a little break, I have a few quicker games I've been wanting to LP but didn't have the time. I've heard several negative things from Xenonauts (Silencer included) but I was looking through the mods and it might be interesting to try something unique. Or of course, the new Xcoms (which is what I'm leaning towards)... I shamefully have never completed the first one
