Yeah, I mean, clearly people are finishing the game with them in place, I just don't like playing that way. It also really doesn't make much sense. You're a guerilla force, and guerilla forces do not just make shit up and throw people away at will.

To me they really don't add anything, but of course that's just me. I'm sure lots of people enjoy the added time pressure / difficulty. I'm just glad we can mod it away if we want to. :)

I agree. It turns games like this into complete trial&error affairs where you are forced to restart several times until you find a way to beat the mission within the limit. Way too game-y for my taste. I hate trial&error games that waste my time.
It was the same problem with the good old Panzer/Pacific General games. Awesome games actually but the turn limits ruined the fun big time, especially when the mission pulled a surprise rabbit out of its hat and forced you to try again.
It's not my cup of tea at all and I'll definitely be giving XCom 2 a pass after reading this thread.
