Randomly impossible missions...
3 sticks of dynamite and a zed lure vs. a level 4 zone during swarm season... Why is this level even in the game?

i would imagine that it is because the zombie outbreaks are random based on a percentage in the game's configuration, and to make it interesting your mercenaries that are available month to month is also random. yes, that would be impossible, but that would be the month to attack a lvl 1 outbreak so that you can add the territory to your roster while denying it to the zed. then wait for llama bomb or something before doing lvl 4 missions.

I'm just wondering how the hell you got a lvl 4 outbreak 3 missions in.

Reading comprehension much?

If you only had 2 units to work with, plus the helicopter, you must have been on the 3rd mission. Unless you've failed a load of missions.

Honestly this post was inspired by my first playthrough and idk, looking back I feel like it was premature. I beat the 20,000 victory point campaign last night. This game rules.

Played through once and wrote that? I'm thinking you didn't even know you could look at what you have before selecting a mission.

I did not know. You are correct.

From my experience, you will get missions that you can't win. Just suffer through it and wait.

If you get the right gear / mercs, lvl 4 missions can be "profitable" even without campaign modifiers to ease them (or making them harder). The 35 scientist bonus is worth it, especially in the longer campaigns, though, yes, you can live without them for the most part.

Its been a while since I created this thread but here's an update...

I've resolved my issues with the whole impossible missions complaint... I just had to spend more time replaying the missions I was failing. I wasn't used to the game or the pacing and I adapted to it eventually. I've beaten the long and short game, and I've been messing with the custom settings a bit. The game is definitely a keeper, very fun in bursts - if I start a campaign I feel compelled to finish it within a week or so. Its a very fun game.
