  1. Welcome, this place is for everybody who struggles with the difficulty of X-Division. If you are stuck, cant deal with a certain problem or dont know how why you fly your airplanes into the ground every time, you can look here for help. Note that those things wont tell you how to deal with a problem, but show you different approaches and tools you can then use or invent your own. You can learn from the successes here as much as you can from the failures. I really struggled with the diificulty in XCOM because i was used to get led by the hand and shown every little piece of the game. I was not used to adapt and think myself out of a bad situation. Until beaglerush introduced me to some new strategies and new forms of tactical approaches and especially like you can handle a game that is chanced based on every little step. I hope this content helps you to start your own experience, shows you new ways and enhances your gameplay. Cheers Charon Table of Content 1.

This is without any commentary yet, but you can pick up some tricks along the way if you struggle with the difficulty. Especially air encounters should give you one or two hints on how you could deal with them. Ill be playing with the latest changes and patches so things you might not have seen yet. The mods used are as stated as in the installation description, check them out if you want. Dont think about this as a lets play but rather as an encyclopedia where you can look up certain situations and a way to deal with them, or examples of failures. Or you can simply watch and enjoy it. I am one of the developers but i´m basically playing this as blind as any other player who has spent 700 hours playing xenonauts. Especially Ground Combat is 100% new to me sicne i didnt develope it and although i made the airgame i dont know anything besides balanceing points either. So this is going to be hella fun. I skipped the beginning part of the first 28 days but you can pretty much see what i did in them. The difficulty is veteran/ironmann.

  2. INTRODUCTION Hello everyone. Let my first briefly introduce myself since this is my first post on these forums. I’m nearing my mid-forties, I live in Slovenia, and I like to play strategy (and other) games. I have played X-COM and UFO Enemy Unknown over and over as a kid and discovered it again some 4-5 years ago. I have just completed my first and only vanilla X:CE playthrough on normal difficulty without ironman. From the outset I planned to play Xenonauts with X-Division mod since I like modded games and reading about X-Division mod I’m led to expect much higher difficulty and much deeper gameplay. I thought it would be a good idea to get myself somewhat acquainted with vanilla gameplay first – hence one vanilla playthrough. This will be my first attempt at writing an AAR of any kind. It will also be my very first attempt at X-Division playthrough apart from a short sniff of 3-4 in-game days of gameplay. For this new game I have chosen NG (standard?) difficulty with Ironman, and I think all options as set by X-Division installer. X:CE version is 1.65/0.35.1 and X-Division 1.00.11c New Dawn. What about your motivation for writing an AAR, you might ask? Well, when I played another game a couple of years ago read some AARs from various players and it was great fun reading them, especially when the player/writer had an interesting story to tell. IMHO what makes a good are somewhat developed characters and story plots, so I will try (and probably fail) to write up something in that vein. I don’t know if this kind of a written AAR thing is even interesting to anyone anymore because of YT, but it doesn’t hurt anyone so why not... I have an excuse to learn something new and write in English. Regarding the additional lore, research, weapons and new mechanics of X-Division mod I have absolutely zero prior knowledge of it apart from reading some of the spoilers in mod descriptions. No videos about X-Division were viewed, so anything I write will be my fresh view of the game developments as they occur. Finally, I’ve taken the liberty to name some characters that will be “contributing” to the story. The names might or might not resemble actual national/ethnical naming conventions and I apologise to anyone that might find my made-up names inappropriate in that regard. As final disclaimers, English is not my primary language, and I could be using some other language expressions wrong, so please bear with me on this… Without further ado, lets dive in. We start with... THE CHARACTERS Military non-combat personnel: General Hugh-Trevor Rhys-Martins 59, British General, X-Division Commander-in-Chief (C-in-C) calm, sophisticated and charmless with a rare spark of charisma Yevgeny Klimentovich Voroshilov 51, Russian Senior Officer, Executive officer to C-in-C and Chief of Operations (X-O/C-Ops) son of a retired Soviet Union marshal; temperamental and loud Kurt Reynalds 54, american Senior Officer, Air Detachment Commander (ADC) WW2 pilot (4 kills) and cereer officer; an Air Force man through and through Luciano (Loukianos) “Lucky” Corelli 39, Italo-Greek Junior Officer, Quick Reaction Force Commander (C-QRF) believes in his soldiers, can get emotional (inherited this from his papa) Andy MacGuinnes 36, Irish NCO, Recruitment & Drill Officer recruits tremble when he is around, but otherwise he is a fine fella' Petra Horachkova 33, Chech NCO, Communications Liaison Officer (CLO) new face in X-Division, brought in to ease communications with outside world Knut Mathiessen 47, Danish NCO, Quartermaster seldom seen outside stores and never without a cigarette (he makes certain nobody sees what he hides in his desk drawer) Pedro de Gini 48, Spanish NCO, senior radar operator reliable and experienced Anatoly Arkadyevich Shvetsov 33, Russian NCO, Interceptor pilot distrusts all western equipment Junichi Akamatsu 34, Japanese NCO, Interceptor pilot son of a WW2 Japanese fighter ace Horatio Gisbergh 23, American enlisted, junior communications operator off-duty he is seen around wearing headphones, listening to casettes on his brand new Walkman, or writing something in his notebook.

  3. Well i finally got bored with my easy playthrough on xdivision because i had researched everything and could never get a ship with an officer and my attention span was gone lol. So i started a campaign on normal and my first ufo landed somewhere in siberia. I set up my units and shipped out expecting to lost a good chunk of them but at least be able to secure that ufo. I landed and we got to it, i leapfrogged from cover to cover and found the first caesan in the middle-ish of the map standing in the open so i set up in a vague c shape in cover around him. Well it didnt do me a damn bit of good cuz the first caesan instagibbed one of my soldiers even tho he was a good 8 tiles away. He then does an aimed shot and manages to cripple my other guy who is also about 8 tiles away and both were behind green cover. Then another two caesans pop out and stand in the middle of the field. Im like -.- but they are in the open so i should be able to turn the tables right? Wrong. I closed in on my next turn and they managed to miss most of their shots or spend most of their time moving so i didnt take two much damage. I had snuck a few guys pretty close and went in for the kill on my third turn. I ran an assault and a rifleman right up to one's face and proceeded to unload. 74% accuracy on the rifleman and 84% on the assault should be cake right? Nope. i fired at least 5 volleys between them to have absolutely nothing hit not even a single pellet from the shotgun even... I was about ready to flip a desk but i held off to try and flank the other guy and same thing happens! then they proceed to wipe half my team the next turn and the rest of them the next. The is where i cant take it anymore and proceed to spend the next 4 hours save scumming. I dont mind some dead guys but this rng.... was ridiculous. I even reloaded the whole mission and started from scratch to no avail. Tried utterly different tactics each time and nope. They would wipe my whole team no matter what i did in 4-5 turns. You can call me a noob if you want but ive played long war on vet for years and stomped the crap outa vanilla campaign here. Im hardly new to this.. I finally ditched the campaign because i couldnt bear to even look at it anymore... So i had to share this story to blunt my pain and clean up my salty tears before the next campaign. I offer a prayer: Oh great rngesus! May our boolits hit their marks and may foul disease be swept upon my enemies! May the great rng god (demon..) with his huge barbed schlong not come and rape me not even a little gently while my poor soldiers throw down their weapons and run up to the aliens and pelt their shins with little kindergarten girl punches cuz itd be more effective... amen!
