comment How can I tell how many kills my soldier is away from promotion?
In the base game, you can't, unless you're meticulous about counting kills and mission completions. It gets more complicated than that, though, since aliens are worth different amounts of XP, and the XP threshold needed for promotion varies based on difficulty.

comment What's the difference between the 'Burning', 'Poisoned', and 'Disoriented' status debuffs?
@Philipp in the first line i mention that acid burn is another form of burning. I'm not sure chyrssalid poison behaves differently from regular poison.

The function that checks for instant research only runs when the research project completes, so they need to be in your inventory.

It's random - you might get another acid, you might get the gas you're looking for.

comment How do I make my character pool soldiers follow their choosen class?
@DavidYell Not quite. Guerrilla Tactics is for Rookies -> Squaddie (of any class). AWC is to retrain perks on soldiers who already have a class.

comment Does the Advanced Warfare Center healing bonus stack with the bonus from HQ?
It's likely that it would double the base, rather than the total result, so 1/3 of the original time. Let's see if I can check.

comment What is the penalty for not saving enough civilians in a retaliation mission?
I believe it's that you lose that region as a resistance contact. (aka, they're wiped out, need to find a new group of rebels)

comment How does 'bladestorm' work?
Agreed, though I don't think the AI will ever move then attack (which is, presumably, the opponent the OP wants to use bladestorm against).

bonus intel, I think!

comment How does 'bladestorm' work?
The second bullet point is probably no, since the way melee works, the melee attack is part of the movement. (Like how rangers can move up to sprint, and then attack). Might be possible to test in multiplayer against another human, perhaps?

comment Is XCOM2 a storyline sequel to XCOM Enemy Unknown / Enemy Within?
@Oak Potentially? I don't think the Spokesman gets psionically controlled in XCOM2, but otherwise its a pretty good match.

@Kexlox As far as I can tell, they're purely "have an engineer".

comment How is the percent-based gold production boost calculated?
@SMeznaric It's been a while. I'm not going to discount the possibility of multiplicative multipliers existing due to wonders, religions, mods, or who knows what else. But I am 100% confidant this is how things work in the general case.

comment Are there individual story lines for each character in Soul Calibur 2
In the original game, at least, each character had a "story" 1-player mode where some of the opponents were predetermined at certain spots, and a couple of of story cards after winning the last fight.

comment How do I get to the two puzzle pieces right at the end of Cloud Bridge?
@SolCrenshaw Yes, place the platform puzzle piece next to the left side so that the Goomba who's walking back and forth walks onto it. Once they do, move the puzzle piece and the platform out from under it. The Goomba will fall to the ground, and you can then use him to reach the puzzle piece.
