Ranonauts – Base Hunting

YouTube Link

This base assault was… less successful than the first, probably because the Indochina team lacks the awesome power of a vehicle rolling out behind them but overall the squad performed well in fairly difficult circumstances. I suspect that a typical game of Xenonauts contains a number of base assault missions, likely of variable size as we continue through. It does mean that these earlier ones are easier but it also means that any given base assault has less of a punchy impact.

I am getting really sick of the suppression being used against me. A suppressed soldier loses a massive amount of AP lost when that happens, and the soldiers suppressed that way tend to be the ones I want to use the most. Unfortunately the time unit and ammo costs of bursts makes them very difficult to use to generate suppression in the same way for my forces. I should try to find out if there is anything I can do to make suppression less likely, does bravery impact suppression chances at all?

Finally I assumed we had captured an alien commander in the command centre of this base, but from the end stats it looks like none of the aliens we got are a Ceasan commander, I am really not sure why. Maybe we got this base early in its development or something? If so that is both good and bad, I mean we need to get an alien commander sometime, either we will have to get a more developed base or wait for even bigger badder ships to come down here and my airforce simply isn’t prepared for bigger, badder alien ships yet.
