Can this be patched?

#1 Posted by Shacks (19 posts) -

Random classes and soldier countries, can these two things be patched? Is other disliking this as well that they might?

I want to make my friends but I can choose for them to me American (maybe because I am OCD), seems like of dumb. Also I have to restart again, because over half my team ended up being snipers. How about after a recruit is no longer being a rookie you can then choose what class you want them to be.

It's not a bug so it's not going to be patched. That's how the game is designed.

You can however abuse the saves at the end of a mission to try to get your rookies a different class. If you're not playing on iron man that is.

Rumors are if you kill a lot with grenades you get heavy. Lots of crits gets you sniper. Lots of close combat gets assault. And if you level without killing someone or get kills with reaction shots it's support.

Well I did notice two rookies get Heavy after getting a kill from a nade in their first mission, maybe there is something to that. Some of it you can't help though, like crits.

I think there's something to that. I started an easy run to check some things out, played a bunch of missions and used grenades (SHUT UP VAHLEN SHUT UP VAHLEN SHUT UP VAHLEN) when I had them to speed things up - three heavies and a support in my first batch of four soldiers.

Hopefully there'll be some sort of patch when the dlc drops to sort some of the glitches/bugs. but would imagine that the class system is what it is

Right now the only way to be sure is to buy the OTS ability that turns all your rookies into squaddies. But I find this option comes too late in the game.
