On my second game of XCOM on Classic Ironmale it took me around 250 ish days to complete the game (Don't quote me on that number).

You are watching: How long to beat xcom enemy unknown

I enjoyed the game a lot, and also I still carry out.

At the finish of the game but is as soon as points turned sour. I had the ability to quickly acquire to the manage room through no damages, even the Sectopods were no challenge. However before the Etherals decided to wreck my squad, my Volunteer was mind managed and everyone was killed.

Except for my Volunteer, that miraculously survived with fifty percent wellness left, reasoning defeat was unavoidable I puburned forward earlier right into the manage room for a last fight, however I was shocked to check out that the Uber Etheral had actually boldly exposed itself alone.

With a 68% chance to hit him, I took the shot and also eliminated him. Thus ending the battle.

Also leaving my survivor to physic push out the currently dead bodies of his previous comrades from the control room while shouting "GO"! I think he might have gone a little bit insane.

Just finiburned my Standard Ironman game tonight. The first one I played to completion.

I started over many kind of times though... also on some games I was doing reasonably well but shed some countries as a result of pure carelessness. (that occurred this game actually also. I had actually 16/16, however I was hoping to complete my http://steamarea.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=108505098 http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=108505098

Ignoring a Terror mission causes the country being terrorized to automatically withdraw regardless of it's existing panic levels. You can't even delay-- when a terror mission pops up, you either acquire on that damn skyranger NOW or shed that nation. They're called 'terror' goals for a reason...

You can but jet in and instantly abort to just take the continual panic hit, if you can't field a battleworthy squad for some reason.

On topic, my cl/im run took me ~260ish days I think. I delayed as long as possible in the segment pre-alien base bereason I didn't want to fight psi troops... I think I had actually titan armor/plasma/firestorms by the moment I also began the alien base, then I just ended the game in the next 2 months :P

Also it was based upon a Tutorial start, which I'm reasonably confident is much remarkable to skipping the tutorial. I can even consider it cheating!

Would you mind elaborating on this a bit? I've only done the tutorial when, on my initially run through a Normal playwith, and also I didn't like having practically my whole first month of research study and also building scripted for me, not to point out being locked right into either a European or North Amerideserve to base area. Aside from a cost-free satellite, what are the benefits of using the tutorial?

Anyway, I determined how to usage steam screenshots so below you go. (additionally what is up via the international stats. Do human being cwarm and also does it count that? How is the "global" 138,406.52? How might anyone acquire 349,446.91 credits earned?!)

I think there's a misplaced decimal somewright here in the calculation of the world average. If you move the decimal suggest two places to the left, the people average score is ~33909, while you acquired 31404.

I finimelted the game at the finish of December, while a terror mission was happening in Brisbane. I wanted to go for a New Year's victory, yet couldn't be bothered through risking my squad in the terror mission and also didn't want to see a shed nation either. I might have actually finished it a month before that, but I was holding out to check out if I could snag a battleship.

I believed I had actually conserved my end stats, yet I guess not. I am pretty certain I was roughly 260 days.

Things were going great for me, I only had 1 real squad but they were tearing it up. I chose to carry out another UFO mission before assaulting the base, and also lost my entirety A team.

I assaulted the base anymeans through my B team, and shed them all too. I came close to providing up considering that also with excellent tech my rookies were obtaining slaughtered.

I ended up just pushing via, letting a few UFOs go while I finiburned plasma and also titan armor. I researched a hover shiv and provided him to scout ahead, saving stays. The goals were unstable yet ultimately enough males survived each time to have actually a real team.

Once I had actually a decent crew together I attacked the base, and also went on to end up the game without losing another mission.

I don't think I might have actually lost any kind of more countries though and won, so it was cshed.
