Bug Fixes in Enemy Within DLC
I've read that the new DLC will include some bug fixes (like the teleport bug). I think it is totally unfair that the bug fixes will be included in a paid DLC, not just as an update. Does anyone else know anything about this?

There will be a patch released alongside the DLC. So bug fixes are not limited to DLC.

PC and Console: Is there a patch that addresses bugs coming for Enemy Unknown?
Yes. We will release patch notes closer to when we are ready to release the patch.

Well actually they claimed they "fixed" the teleport bug wìith the last patch some time ago. Even so I too, like many other players, still experienced this bug myself many times (but in milder forms) during my last playthrough.
Hope they really fixed the dam bug with the Enemy Within expansion. It was responsable for a total squad wipeot on my last IRONMAN CLASSIC (hopefully i managed to hold on and finish the game with the less experienced squad I had :-D ).
I do belive there will be a patch for the original game too, not only the expansion thou.

They didn't claim to fix it, they claimed to reduce the frequency of it occurring. I've only had the bug happen once in my eighty hours of playing the game.

I'm assuming this "teleport" bug is actually the effect of hearing aliens from one direction (or maybe seeing them with a sensor), then upon reaching them, they appear elsewhere after their little cutscene (often behind the squad).

I've never really let that bother me. :\ I've ran into it once or twice per playthrough, and it's never really seriously caught me off guard, since I move my soldiers in the proper order anyway.

Teleport bug refers to when aliens suddenly teleport in your view.

Other bug they said they should have fixed (mostly) is flanking bug... which was not a bug, but bugs. Total of 13 of them.

No. What you are describing is normal.
The teleport bug is related to the aliens being teleported (usually a gruop of them) near your squad, out of nowhere.
I had this problem happen to me at least 6-10 times during my gameplays. It may not sound like much but thrust me that when you are playing IRNMAN CLASSIC OR IMPOSSIBLE it can be the difference between going forward or loosing the battle and have to restart the game from scratch.
But hopefully they fixed it for good :-)

Interesting. I've yet to run into this "teleport bug" then. :\ Although it could be the same bug, just works differently every time.

It's very inconsistent across the board. Most people either don't see it, at all or see it maybe 1-3 in 10 games.

Others insist that every single alien ever constantly teleport on their teams.

I imagine the number is further exaggerated by people who base their entire frustration of the game on the bug, though I'm not discrediting the existence of it. It should get fixed. :\

I havent really encountered the teleport bug much until the later half of my I/I playthrough, it happened everyfew missions where aliens would teleport into my view, trigger then teleport back out, quite annoying but it thankfully didnt screw me over too bad.

I still have a save where teleport bug happens. Someone took it, used console commands to remove the fog and noted that the muton in that save did really teleport from other end of the map right into 6 overwatching soldiers(and got hilariously murdered).

So yeah, teleport bug most certainly is real and does happen. However, how frequent it is, is up to debate. Those who think XCOM is a bad game insist it happens constantly and it's inherit in the game. Personally, I think it's something to do with computer running the game. It's the only way to explain the extreme inconsistency.

There`s a far simpler way to explain that actually. Either one side doesn`t recognize it when it happens and thus "never" has it or the other side ascribes things that aren`t the TP bug to the TP bug.

I get it maybe one in five missions, or at least I get incidents I`m sure are the bug once in five missions, so not THAT often but often enough to be bothersome. Far more common for me is LoS bugs, which helps identifying the TP bug when it happens though.

LoS bug is something I am... iffy, to say the least. Too often LoS "bug" is player not understanding LoS rules.

I screenshotted a few. Getting vision on stuff outside the maximum sight range, through walls and hills... most obvious when there is nothing but flat ground in between but I do not have sight on much of the in between ground, just the little patch where the pod is/was.

Thank you. Didn't know this.
