At current in War of the Chosen, the unfortunate husks of life known as lost are a little too biased against XCOM forces in comparison to ADVENT. This mod aims to balance out that aggression. Essentially, this mod changes the Lost to react to threats and distance to targets, but also makes it so that in a battle between equal levels of firepower at equal distances, the Lost will have a 50-50 chance of coming for XCOM and ADVENT, evening out the aggression and lowering bias.
