Enemy Within DLC in 2h 45m 27s by
Description

My first speedrun. Made a lot of mistakes in this run, but also learned a lot from it. Considering all the mistakes I made, I think it should be possible to do a sub 2 hour run. My biggest mistake was doing an extra ufo mission in order to build a firestorm. Instead I sould've just researched emp cannons, and have three interceptors in each continent, as the overseer only takes three emp shots to go down. Three makes it possible even without tracking, with tracking two should be enough. The research for emp is 7 or 9 days I think, rather than the 20 days it takes to build a firestorm. I also scuffed my base defense, some of it my fault, some of it the AI bugging out. My final mission was also very bad, could've done that a lot better.

My calculations for timesave: First mission: 2:52, can save at least 1 min start base assault: 23:04, can save at least 3 min end base assault: 44:08, can save at least 4 min start base defense: 48:27, can maybe save 1 min end base defense: 1:50:05, can save at least 16 min Start overseer mission: 1:50:05, can save atleast 10 min, maybe more End overser mission: 2:08:17, might save a couple of minutes, but was a pretty good overseer mission, especially considering the map Start temple ship: 2:10:48, not a lot to save, very few clicks to save time on End: 2:45:43, scuffed temple ship run, can save 10-15 min Total possible timesave: 45-50 min

mod edit: retimed to 2:45:27 (time ends when the uber ethereal's health bar disappears/it starts the "this is not your path" line)
