Oh boy, a Tactical Tuesday/Exquisite Corps episode! After Rob called me out on stream, I had to go back and try to figure out where we are and what they were doing. (Shout out to all of the other XCOM advisors out there.)
Normally I’d recommend an Alien Facility assault for this sort of thing, and while a new one is due to be constructed imminently, who knows where it will be; the only one they can currently assault isn’t accessible (though I think they have a Facility Lead they could research).
At the end of the last stream, they completed one of the Shadow Chamber projects and opened a new story mission. I believe there’s five more project/mission combos before the final mission.
So, for this special episode, they could try the story mission, which will be difficult of course. They could hope for the standard Alien Facility mission, which would be ideal due to being untimed and relatively easy (also because it’d stop the Avatar Project progress, which is currently ticking). Lastly, they could wait for one of the standard resistance missions to proc and do that, but unless it’s a supply mission it’ll also be timed.
In any case, since the rest of the staff proclaimed that chat won’t be allowed to help, I’ll wish Rob and Austin good luck here and now!
