i think only weakness is not many different classes

and the ranks max out too quickly

it was fun when still building up and leveling up my crew, but once i had max rank of all the classes, game got boring cause my crew would not gain any progression

I think I'll get Enemy Unknown. I can't stand timers.


There are mods for XCOM 2 that remove nearly all of the timers in missions. I think you can change the advent timer with mods too.

Basically "mods'll fix it"


And really it's not even a thing that needs fixing. The timers are a non-issue 90% of the time, they just ensure you can't spend 50 turns creeping forward two squares -> Overwatch entire squad -> Creep forward 2 squares -> Overwatch entire squad, as people seemed to do for Enemy Unknown / Within.

And there's an option with the expansion to double the length of timers too, making them a complete non-issue as long as you actually play the game.
The sole purpose of this space is to make my post look longer.

Exactly. The timers just force you to come up with actual strategies based on maps, your squad, and objectives rather than just mindlessly cheesing your way slowly through maps.
