On my second terror mission in the game.

My first battle tank immediately get blown off by a floater.The tank just took one step forward from the skyranger. :LOL: I saw green beam coming directly from the building.Boom!! I m not sure where that guy was but I killed him by random throwing 2 nades.

After a few turns obviously,I sense something is really wrong.So,I used motion scanner on the aircraft itself!!.Believe it or not,one Reaper on my left another one on my right.Well,I thought thats it just two Reapers.I can finish them off with rifles (autoshot) since they are in close range.Heh,that just wrong.Another two steps forward from skyranger,two of my soldiers get killed by floaters @ long range.While the whole squad focusing on the Reapers.OMFG the gayness.. :cussing:

Yup,thats my game minutes ago.Tell us about your "unlucky situation".One chryssalid > your entire squad? :LOL:

[edited] it's the skyranger not avenger. ;P (silly me)

The classic "Blaster bomb in the full Skyranger" comes to mind... :o
Since then, I consider using the smoke grenades less often... And get the Plasma hovertank out first!! :D

Step off the skyranger and have 3 snakemen at long range stepping in and out of range, 2 crystallids long range moving in, and 2 snakemen 1 on each side of my skyranger aiming like this to my landing platform:

......_ <-- landing playform
.
/...........\ <--- Snakeman crossfire.


And it wasn't even on superhuman.
Overwhelmed as one would be, placed in my position.
Such a heavy burden now to be the 'one'.
Born to bear and bring to all the details of our ending,
To write it down for all the world to see.

But I forgot my pen!

Mysteriously not having your weapons loaded, even though you just KNOW you supplied the ship with enough ammo for everyone, the moment you land on a terror mission. Then walking down the platform, taking up an offensive formation. You have no idea how great it feels to spot an oncoming Ethereal, only seconds later to see that not one freaking soldier has ammunition. That's happened a good two or three times. Talk about unlucky.

Darned bugs...

Geez, that must be a real pain, especially if you have no Psi :o

I suppose that's why they say there's such a thing as "tactical retreat."

"Okay, people--one by one, out of the Skyranger. Stay close."
"Copy that, sir."
"Okay, everybody ready? Right--spread out, and watch your backs."
"Uh, sir--wait! Our magazines! They're...empty!"
"Crap! The Quartermaster got lazy again, I guess. Okay, squad--plan B. Run!"

I hope you've got grenades...
Time to scrounge the aliens...
Fortunately, they usually carry a spare magasine :D
