Not entirely true
Here a community effort is underway to bring lw2 to wotc
Progress is slow, but it's being done
darktoto Jul 14 @ 8:18am 
no wotc, never wotc.

1) they are no longer in partnership with Firaxis

2) it would take them to recode almost everything (so yeah Firaxis doesn't want to refinance something like that, even partially)

3) they are busy with their own "soon to be for years" kickstarter game

4) there is still little bits that are compatible but no centralisation. Don't expect the game to have another big centralized mod.

look at the pavonis forum for wotc updates i think the steam one will not get the wotc version

if u want 100% guarantee u research the ADVENT facility lead(drop from loooted enemy) it's rare to get it tho i only ever got 1 in 12 mission but maybe that's just my luck
!Defender Jul 11 @ 9:08pm 
@Medic u detect the blacksite via intel worker or if u have the more work for lw2 pick the detect alien facility
Medic Fluttershy Jul 9 @ 10:18am 
or what event spawns the blacksite?
Medic Fluttershy Jul 9 @ 12:20am 
For me the blacksite never spawns. what mission spawns the blacksite?
!Defender Jul 9 @ 12:07am 
@Ninno0 u need to keep up, u can't farm level of troops since in long war the avatar project will keep going unlinke vanilla where it only start after certain event
!Defender Jul 9 @ 12:06am 
u need research troops then officer beside u can mass corpse in supply run 0% infiltration i try going less than 100% in any mission that's not extract for more corpses
Ninno0 Jul 6 @ 10:52am 
why i get avatar project game over in loongwar?
Medic Fluttershy Jul 4 @ 1:58am 
Ok so im curious if anyone else is having trouble getting the blacksite mission. Ive done the campaign 5 times and got stopped at the avatar autoposy every time. And every time the only mission not accounted for is the blacksite mission. Tried different strategies to get it to appear each time and each time its failed. im at a complete loss at this point

Real happy to know things havent changed around here.
TRJoker Jun 29 @ 11:48pm 
You are really the joke of the day, fluttershy ... and changing names all 5 minutes does not make it better ... but ok, wont bother you again, must be hard to live with so less brain.
TRJoker Jun 29 @ 11:46pm 
Lol, funny troll did erase his own comments and thinks ppl are THAT stupid to not get it. Only one THAT stupid is you ... smile.
Medic Fluttershy Jun 29 @ 11:45pm 
colossis and tomoxx, add me if you need anymore help
TRJoker Jun 29 @ 10:22pm 
Cause then you would not have sat before your pc and raged for 15 minutes now, finding stupid personal blames, other ppl just identify you as what you are ... thx, bro, you show the idiot you are ... step by step ... so everything nice .... smile.
TRJoker Jun 29 @ 10:07pm 
Maybe Fluttershy, butIi did beat the mod without modding it to kindergarden and it was not on easy ... kid .... so perhaps the troll is you .... no, for sure, the troll is you.
You know what trolls do?
Blame others for their faults .... and stupidness.
Tomoxx Jun 29 @ 8:45pm 
Btw I learnt the hard way how to play this, lost an entire 8 man squad in the first mission including 6 which were most of the only level 2 soldiers i had because I went against like 28 enemies on that mission because I didnt know about the new infiltration mechanic. :steamsad:
Tomoxx Jun 29 @ 4:29pm 
What happens when I get WotC after playing LW2 without buying WotC ?
TRJoker Jun 29 @ 2:19pm 
Its not a bug, its a feature. If it is too hard, you are too weak!
Colossus715 Jun 29 @ 2:15pm 

Yeah, that pisses me off too. What two MODs did u download to fix this? Can you post the links? Thanks.
Bdeslaurs Jun 29 @ 10:21am 
At least its free
Medic Fluttershy Jun 29 @ 10:19am 
rendering wasnt the problem, the fact LW2 does not allow you to extract coprses on 95% of the missions is the problem. i had to download 2 mods to fix this. considering this is a bunch of game breaking bugs it seems unnacceptable.
Bdeslaurs Jun 29 @ 9:03am 
Bdeslaurs Jun 29 @ 9:02am 
Be sure your doing the officer study and not RENDER advant officer
ScrubbieMcWonderPubs Jun 29 @ 8:48am 
I'm having the same problem as @Medic but the console commands don't do anything. I try adding an advent officer corpse but it won't work...
Medic Fluttershy Jun 25 @ 4:23pm 
Ive played long war three times. all 3 times my progress was impeaded one way or another. fist the game would not let me pick up an advent officer corpse for autopsy (which is required) then the blacksite nor the forge would appear on my map. lastly once i fixed those with console commands, the game REFUSED to allow me to research the avatar corpse i once again had to add with console commands after i killed one after using a skulljack on a codex, but did not recieve the avatar corpse.
Specter Jun 20 @ 8:54am 
@Dagless don't forget the buggy LOS in lost and abadoned maps too. I love being spotted behind walls and then grenaded to death on my legendary ironman campaign!
Dagless Jun 19 @ 8:42pm 
Long live Long War 2. This is the only real expansion for XCOM 2. WotC is a joke DLC that basically only adds 3 one off novelty classes and some fake difficulty.
Pryda4ever Jun 19 @ 5:59am 
@ZotaOTT[RU] i have Spark´s DLC and it´s works 100% with Long War 2 check out your mods
alexspeed8888 Jun 19 @ 5:21am 
It makes the game lame
darielduane92 Jun 19 @ 3:55am 
i know that you guys won't be doing anything for wotc, so thank you guys for the great work. when you guys create your xcom like games in the future, keep 3 and 4 in your LW2 list as your key mechanic because that is awesome, and that's the only thing i'm hoping to get in wotc if you guys ever wanna do anything with the game.
Kysman Jun 17 @ 9:30am 
This f***king mod made me completely hate myself, my soldiers and the game. Thank you for that experience, but I'll never download it again. (yes, casual gamer), the new stuff you added are fucking amazing and I'd love to experience more, but I had to rage quit after 2nd mission
ZotaOTT[RU] Jun 12 @ 11:38am 
dlc shen spark last gift not work((((
Meme Turtle Jun 7 @ 2:22am 
That is correct. In LW2 DE are advent upgrades. Not of them are permanent though, only tactical ones. Strategic DE will fade away after a month.
Bdeslaurs Jun 6 @ 11:33pm 
If i understand well whats on the website, Dark event are just going to stack up until the end mission?
J.rex Jun 5 @ 8:32pm 
@FSK Yes to both. Magnetic weapons are a later tier with higher damage.
!Defender Jun 4 @ 7:51am 
@Meme Turtle thats weird it's relatively early for me even the tower appear first before the alien hunter dlc
also at 1) u can use concealment from shinobi and cheese with 2 sniper and grenadier if u dont want corpse but the exp from killling aliens(dont pull more than 1 pod or ur 60% chance of wiped out by friggin alien killing someone and panic spread,happened to me once)
Felah Jun 2 @ 6:01am 
I have a noob question. If a install Long War do I lost access to the vanila game? Or I can play both using another exe file or just easily deactvating the mod?
Meme Turtle May 31 @ 8:54am 
Another question: when does Twin towers(DLC mission for spark) is supposed to appear? I am two months into the game and no mission yet. Are there any requirements like research, time or region for the mission?
Meme Turtle May 31 @ 8:52am 
Thank you, both. To answer my own questions:
1) 0% supply raid is not viable cause no concealment before 100% inf and a lot of free moves for aliens.
2) stealthing is possible but not as reliable as before since more pods with fewere enemies. Oscar miking prisoners is no longer possible.
3) Network tower is largely the same, hacking objective stuns enemies so assaults/technicals are essential for this mission.
4) I'd say both are situational but still useful. xwynns and derava(both finished lw2 on L/I) used them sucessfully.
!Defender May 31 @ 7:51am 
2) it's still good but i still miss my death from above shinobi he is so op(i still not get any new dfa shinobi after new game tsk)
Colossus715 May 26 @ 7:01pm 

4) SPARKS are trash now. Their hit ratio is garbage in my opinion.
Meme Turtle May 26 @ 3:55pm 
Back in 1.2 the mod had some problems with supply raid missions and stealth, so I have a few questions if these and other problems were properly addressed in patches:

1) Was the 0% supply raid meta fixed? In 1.2 brute forcing supply raids was a reliable way to get a lot of supplies and loot.

2) Stealthing missions(such as black vile) with a shinobi and a specialist. I remember doing a lot of missions stealthy with just 1-2 soldiers as the most efficient approach. Is that still a thing?

3) Are enemies still stunned during network tower mission? A cheesy method I employed was to get to the objective without breaking concealment, hack it to stun all enemies for 2 turns and then kill 2-3 pods with aoe attacks using my assault/gunner/shinobi. Is it still the most viable method?

4) What about sparks and psionics? Are they any viable now or not worth the investment? I'd rather not have to use mods like metal over flesh as they seem to be to OP in my opinion.

Are you supposed to get laser weapons before magnetics? Because both times I've been playing through this has happened. And if so, should I still research magnetics?
GenObi May 21 @ 10:46pm 
Good mod but i would never recommend it over the base game
±Knifey12 May 21 @ 9:55am 
Player over 250+ hours of LW2. Never finished it.
!Defender May 19 @ 10:35pm 
Maybe try lower difficulty if its too hard? Heck its even written it will be hard even for veteran xcom player that and once u know how to cheese supply convoy it became easy resource just have to sacrefice 1 meatshield for 20+corpse is a good and by meatshield i mean rookies
