comment Is AFK gaming more profitable?
@Frank - it does say "Offline gold calculation has been tweaked to be more accurate." Not sure what that actually means, though. Those numbers are from v0.14.

According to the FAQ at Reddit, you do gain more gold when the game is closed.

comment Mouse sensitivity while aiming grenades
Pretty sure it is a bug. Also, it is much easier to aim grenades in Enemy Within, so if you were considering the expansion...

comment In Dungeon Crawl, I've found two good weapons. What should be my weapon-use strategy, and why?
Also consider the point of view of now versus the future - The +9 trident of speed is awesome right now. The +0 unbranded latajang could be better in the future, once it is branded and has some bonuses.

comment Civ 5 BNW broken city connections bug?
In addition to enemy units, it is possible for enemy territory to take over one of the hexes that your road goes through, thus severing the link (if you do not have an Open Borders agreement).

comment How are aliens affected by darkness in OpenXCom
I was a bit hasty (and tired) when I changed the tags, but OpenXCOM is an attempt to be 100% accurate to the known game mechanics in XCOM, which means, for the majority of game mechanic questions, the answers will be the same. Either tag is fine with me.

OpenXCOM is not a game; it is just a way to play the original XCOM.

comment How high is the probability that a hunter has an Unleash the Hounds combo in their hand?
@ChaseC - The mulligan changes the initial start percentage, because you have the ability to see 6 or 8 cards before the game starts.

Don't forget the differences in going first vs going second (3 cards versus 4) and mulligans specifically looking for UTH, which can give you 8 attempts to get the card in your opening hand.
