This thread should go down in the annuls of HLP history, as the best run through XCOM seen by many.
If you hit it and it bleeds, you can kill it. If you hit it and it doesn't bleed...You are obviously not hitting hard enough.

Peace is a lie, there is only passion.
Through passion, I gain strength.
Through strength, I gain power.
Through power, I gain victory.
Through victory, my chains are broken.
The Force shall free me.

Um, holy crap. Somewhere along the line I decided 1 kill per mission just wasn't enough.

You had one of the lowest TU totals on the team, so I basically went "screw this we're giving every kill to Kyad so he TUs up" and for several missions you did most of the door breaches and got most of the kills.

...you didn't get as many TUs as I'd hoped, but it was enough. Towards the end the TUs per kill gain seemed to fall away from the 1 for 1 or 2 for 1 it has in the beginning, which was why swashmebuckle and Scourge of Ages ended up going to Mars with so few despite my efforts to bring their TUs up for about a month.

I do have one quesiton - what is the brains plea anyway?

It basically claims that humans are descended from Martian civilization and that if only you'll stay your hand it'll give the ability to go to the stars and you can't kill me you're a part of me and blah blah blah.

However, the entire sequence seems somewhat contrived after the people it's talking to have already seen twenty-five of their buddies killed and fought this thing for eleven months, so I just skipped over it pleading because it's not like we'd listen anyways.

FYI to both moderators and those who report posts... threads aren't generally eligible to be moved to the Classics board until several months after they've been posted.  We already had that discussion regarding this thread.

Wait, you can use "Report to moderator" to request that a thread be moved to The Classics? :confused:

Might as well do away with that, since most of the threads in the classics aren't funny at all.

You can use "Report to moderator" to tell the moderators anything you want.  Occasionally, this is used in nonstandard ways.

They don't have to be.

"...The quintessential quality of our age is that of dreams coming true. Just think of it. For centuries we have dreamt of flying; recently we made that come true: we have always hankered for speed; now we have speeds greater than we can stand: we wanted to speak to far parts of the Earth; we can: we wanted to explore the sea bottom; we have: and so  on, and so on: and, too, we wanted the power to smash our enemies utterly; we have it. If we had truly wanted peace, we should have had that as well. But true peace has never been one of the genuine dreams - we have got little further than preaching against war in order to appease our consciences. The truly wishful dreams, the many-minded dreams are now irresistible - they become facts." - 'The Outward Urge' by John Wyndham

"The very essence of tolerance rests on the fact that we have to be intolerant of intolerance. Stretching right back to Kant, through the Frankfurt School and up to today, liberalism means that we can do anything we like as long as we don't hurt others. This means that if we are tolerant of others' intolerance - especially when that intolerance is a call for genocide - then all we are doing is allowing that intolerance to flourish, and allowing the violence that will spring from that intolerance to continue unabated." - Bren Carlill

You will be in the next one, assuming there is a next one.

Do it again, but this time on Superhuman. :D

(This will require XComUtil or something similar.  It should also fix the Base Disjoint Bug that you noticed, as well as several other bugs.)

I've done the game before with XcomUtil but never on Superhuman. Not sure I could. Not really sure I want to.

I could get the cloning machines working, you just might be able to do it with a full squad of The_E clones.  :P

17:37:11   SpardaSon21: even the males?
17:37:22   Quanto: its not gay if its an elf

[21:51] <@Droid803> I now realize
[21:51] <@Droid803> this will be SLIIIIIGHTLY awkward
[21:51] <@Droid803> as this rich psychic girl will now be tsundere for a loli.
[21:51] <@Droid803> OH WELLL.

See what you're missing in #WoD and #Fsquest?

[07:57:32] <Caiaphas> inspired by HerraTohtori i built a supermaneuverable plane in ksp
[07:57:43] <Caiaphas> i just killed my pilots with a high-g maneuver
[07:58:19] <Caiaphas> apparently people can't take 20 gees for 5 continuous seconds
[08:00:11] <Caiaphas> the plane however performed admirably, and only crashed because it no longer had any guidance systems

I made it to mars, as a brain. But in control of three elerium boosted nukes. I can console myself with that.
