People have been asking for a few episodes now to see what happens when I make bad decisions and things go wrong: as of today, I'm happy to oblige, with the help of special guest victim star Drizzy Dan!

I DIDN'T MEAN TO MISS! Ardent's got a great shot however.

Definitely my favorite episode so far. Love when there's some doubt whether we don't know if we will or will not make it. Way to maneuver, Red.

Damn straight you're taking me on a mission. That first shot was just the entire story of XCOM though; 86% to hit, and I miss.

Gotta say, though, RNG was not on your side in that mission... up until the end, that is. I can only imagine the game's going to get nastier from here on. D:

Continuing in the vein of my inability to make sensible decisions, here's part six, in which we take on an ADVENT blacksite in order to discover our first clues about the aliens' ultimate plan!

Goes on first mission, tied for kills with Drizzy and more than Yoshi... (Humble Brag).

Today's episode shows something of a return to form as we launch Operation Choking Tome, in search of the supplies we so desperately need!

I don't think I've ever done a play-through where I didn't give all of my grenadiers Shredder. The armor penetration is just too valuable to pass up.

EDIT: Added the spoiler thingo, just in case. 

 

I can answer for this. "Absolutely Critical" activates when a target is flanked, or in the open entirely (Therefore; flanked, since there's no cover between shooter and target) and overwatch shots don't count flanking in their crit calculations; since the target is usually just leaving cover when you fire. For the most part, I think they're actually incapable of criticals.

Also Red, a little theory here...But say a soldier has the ability to trigger a critical hit in Overwatch fire, would your 300% critical hit mod (Improved Criticals? I forgot the name, sorry) also activate?

 

Or was double-critting via Overwatch just a chance of pure luck Twam intervention?

 

No need for spoiler tags, it's a question of mechanics, not discussing how Drizzy got shot ;)

 

Most Overwatch shots, as Boss says, can't score critical hits: however, certain perks (such as Keko's special Overwatch ability) allow them to do so. That said, I'm not certain whether enemies attacked via reaction fire actually count as flanked or not: I could be wrong on this, but I think provided they start or end their move in cover relative to the attacker, while they could be hit critically it would only be based on non-flanking crit chance, such as special ammunition, innate weapon critical hit chance, etc.

 

In any case, Keko is suffering that unfortunate glitch, so in his case - yes, it's just the blessings of Twam :)

That could've went a lot worse but you managed to salvage it.

Hopefully we don't have a repeat.

Today's mission, though I didn't realise it at the time, apparently involved a side-mission to capture an important member of ADVENT, or something, which we completed wholly by accident: however on the bright side, I'm happy to report that we successfully completed our primary objective of jumping through as many windows as possible!
