Every community member is unhappy? Are you an invalid?

@MarkMark: Yes, they are:steammocking:. X-Com 2 has a lof of wheels going around in many directions. Quite Frankly, it would be scary for the devs to see the kind of scope made available through workshop and long war; being applied to X-Com's scale.
Also, the upgrade issue is from steam's retailing and sales pov rather than the game devs, who just sign-off afterwards.
Enemy Unknown was once made a *free forever download* on steam. DLCs are a new thing for steam in general...work in progress here.

*Fortunately*, every steam community member is deeply unhappy and hence becomes committed to improving the DLC experience. In the past, universally deep unhappiness and commitment have always given very good results rapidly on steam. (Workshop, Anyone?)

It should work well all over again. Watch the DLC space.

Why can't 2K come up with an upgrade option for xcom 2 complete for those of us who already own some but not all the dlc? are you guys really so dumb to realise you have an opportunity for more money instead of less?

You can. It's called turning off automatic updates and launching the game from the file location.

2. Would it be possible if i could * choose to install the * updates when i * want, and not every * time i want to play the * game. i get a little game time now and then, and its * frustrating when i have to * wait for the * update to * download so that i can * play the game.

Please understand that i would have used a lot more colorful adjectives to show how i am feeling at the moment, if it wasnt offensive.

p.s. *= colorful adjective.

Seriously Blake, read what people are saying exactly and think a little before you throw out the harassment card. Think. I cannot stress that enough.

T.H.I.N.K. Okay, maybe I can.

Harassing? Grab a dictionary, kid. It's the manner in which people voice things that get them certain replies, but if you really consider that harassment then you may want require a reality check.

"The DLC ruined the game!" Yeah, that's such a good complaint, right? Didn't think so. There's this thing you may not have heard of called "constructive criticism" which so very few people here practiced.

See, your issue on the game? That's fine. That's constructive. Gmotagi's? Nowhere near. As for Zyborgmonkey, he nowhere near gets stress tests. He clearly expects perfection right out the gate when there are things dev's cannot replicate without a mass stress test. We are required to find bugs they could not so they can get fixed due to- once again- being unable to replicate things properly. If his argument had been things still consisting SINCE launch then that'd be a different story but he literally has absolutely zero argument.

The frustrating part with Firaxis (w/XCOM) is, they are not open about fixing there game (generally). Getting information about a patch is impossible - I play mostly on PS4 and this patch note/update announcement says "coming to PS4 and XBOX soon," but still no patch. I contacted 2K support and they will not answer my question about an upcoming patch for console. This is the only place on the internet that says anything about a console patch (on a PC platform) and that's sad.

And Zyborgmokey has a point - there are things Firaxis fixed with the War of The Chosen expansion pack and 2K/Firaxis Games decided not to fix the base game anymore. They pretty much said "we are not fixing the base game anymore" and it's sad, that Firaxis enticed customers to buy expansion for updates.

Anyways, I'm hoping for the best. Please Firaxis - fix XCOM 2.

@Nomadic - Why are you harassing users on this thread? People purchased this game from 2K (made by Firaxis Games) and the game has been buggy for a long time. It's frustrating to buy a game - that has been having so many issues for over a year now and then have someone trying to put down other users. Why, because you don't want to hear them complain about the game/bugs. How are you helping the XCOM community, by being mean spirited.

And at the end of the day - we purchased a product and we have every right to complain about that product.
