Question: Is there a consensus on how to organize enemy information? Do we want separate pages for each variation of every enemy? Group all upgrades of a base unit on one page? Stack up all of the information on to one giant mega-page like LW1's page? Hewhoispale (talk) 17:35, 6 March 2017 (UTC)

Due to the variety of LW2's units, I decided to simply add photos of all the different variations, but I don't think each should have its own page, but rather have a single page for Grenadier, Sergeant, Archon, Sectoid, etc. Hobbes (talk) 18:41, 6 March 2017 (UTC)
System at the moment is a picture for each unit that has a different model in game, and the link points to the page for the basic version, which explains that they're actually variations of the same type. It works well for the aliens. It might work better for the ADVENT when we figure out which are actually variations of each other so we can categorise them properly (First Sergeant is clearly an advanced Sergeant. Is Commando an advanced Scout? Is Shock Trooper an advanced Vanguard?) Binkyuk (talk) 11:28, 8 March 2017 (UTC)
Here are the perks assigned for the ADVENT elite units. Sergeants have Fire Control 25 and Tactical Sense, First Sergeant additionally has Locked On. Scout has Shadowstep, Lone Wolf and Will to Survive. Commando has Shadowstep, Evasive and Low Profile. Shock Trooper has Aggression, Bring Em On and Executioner. And finally Vanguard has Close Combat Specialist, Close and Personal, Hard Target and Lone Wolf. From the perks it looks to me that the 4 last units have designed all with different roles.

Fascinating. Also terrifying. Hewhoispale (talk) 14:33, 8 March 2017 (UTC)
