Reading steam forums is such a bad idea. I've spent about an hour this evening trying to wrap my head around two whole threads of posters complaining that Chrysalids are nerfed compared to in XCOM 2012. I don't think I ever got hit by them in all my playthroughs. :scratch:

A melee only enemy that bunches up out of cover and that your soldiers are faster than (since the chrysalids will not attack but simply surround the nearest unit if they have to dash). At least in this XCOM they are actually capable of landing a hit with the new dash+melee rules.

Admittedly they aren't remotely as bad as stun lancers, which are definitely the peak of the difficulty curve at around the turn of the first supply drop.
