Maybe someone can answer me this: does it make sense to storm the base as soon as you make the option available, or do you really need to be prepared?
For example, I've had the assault the base option available for quite a while now, and by that point I think the toughest thing I had seen was a beserker. Instead of assaulting the base I've waited because I want to kit out my guys with the top armour and weapons first. During this time though I have come across these mechwarrior units which are considerably more of a pain to take out.
My question is this: If I had assaulted the base earlier, would beserkers have been the worst enemy I face, or would the mechwarriors and higher difficulty aliens be there anyway?
Just wondering, since in my current game my plan of waiting for better equipment seems to have backfired quite badly, and I'm trying to think if I need to be better at resource management or if there is another route I could have taken; such as assaulting the base when I first got the chance.
EDIT: Oh, and this game rocks. I'm taking my PS3 round to a friend's place in a bit for an X-Com gamers evening, we love it.
