Kill This Troper. Annoying as ever. And I must say this is one of the sadder!
** This troper once found a bunch of Sectoids fueling up their Cyberdisc. A few laser shots and it went BOOM. Then the pumps went BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM. Cue alien death shrieks in polyphonic stereo.

** It's even worse than that. This troper saw an alien fire a stun bomb at an HWP (Basically [[TankGoodness a tank]]), which are immune to stun damage (and no, they didn't have the excuse of reaction fire as it happened during their turn).

* The AI, especially in the first game, sometimes makes some rather...odd choices, to say the least. I've had aliens throw unprimed grenades at me, aliens use massive AOE weapons like blaster launchers at point blank range, melee aliens walk up my troops then...randomly walk off without attacking. In one battle, I had 3 aliens line up in a row, the middle alien fires at one of my troops, and instead kills the alien in front, then the alien in the rear also decides he's a sharpshooter, and...kills the middle alien. Then gets killed by reaction fire from my soldier. All helpful, but amusing to see nonetheless.

Fixed some spelling errors
-->''"Triscene Terrorist" (8-foot-tall dinosaur with plasma cannons on is shoulders) has panicked.''
to:
-->''"Triscene Terrorist" (8-foot-tall dinosaur with plasma cannons on is its shoulders) has panicked.''

* All aliens on a landing cleaned up besides 1, looters(no armor no weapons) deployed, the most worthless one of the bunch opens a door, scares the sectoid commander who fires off his stun bomb launcher, the bomb bounces off the soldier's non-existant armor, hits the sectoid in the head knocking him out, then explodes stunning the soldier and ending the mission, he got promoted for that, and we caught a live sectoid commander.
