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.

comment How do I obtain the additional soldier customisation options in XCOM: Enemy Within?
@BlueRaja-DannyPflughoeft - No, it's important so you can colour-code your soldiers to look like the ponies. :P (But, yes I do agree with you - being able to tell your soldiers apart at a glance is great.)

comment Is there a correlation between my collection and the arena cards?
@Troyen - Correct. I always forget about those cards, because I don't have any of them.

comment How can I make a guard move out of the way?
Possibly. It's pretty small if it is, as I accidentally ended up in jail, but was able to continue on (as a good guy) after serving my time.

comment Who will be the leader if 6 colonels are in the same squad?
And prior to buying any increased squad size, it is the second soldier from the left that is chosen - that soldier is always in the same physical location on the screen, regardless of squad size.

Generically, if all your troops are the same rank, how is the leader chosen?

comment The Chryssalids! They're everywhere! How do I survive the Site Recon mission?
@z- I could have sworn it said the reward was just a panic reduction for Canada, which was irrelevant at that point in my game.

So, leapfrog your way back to the Skyranger. I can see that working.

comment Contaminated Ore and Mysterious Green Liquid
It has been an extremely long time since I played, but a cursory Google search says that the items are useless, but that there is a mod that adds in a couple of small quests with them.

comment Why can't I multi-class?
Multi-classing for demi-humans is chosen when the character is created. Dual classing for humans is chosen after a character has levelled up.

comment Why am I never attacked? Why is the AI so peaceful?
Generally speaking (and ignoring personalities), the AI attacks based on relative power levels. In the early game, they will attack you if you are weak. In the late game, they will attack you if you are strong and winning. However, If you want to fight, there is a Declare War button on the diplomacy screen...
