Why do landing ships have such a large room without any cover except at the back for the aliens? This makes it very difficult to attack a landing ship with 2-4 alien in it, because no grenades can reach the aliens usually hiding behind a panel at the back where they are difficult to hit and have clear shots at soldiers in the door. If one does not have rockets, one should expect heavy losses when attacking this ship. In my first attack against a landing ship, I was lucky and lost only a single soldier, but when I tried to replay it today, I lost 5 soldiers, including 3 from an alien rocket. Unfortunately I don't remember if I did anything special the first time or if I was just lucky...
I haven't had a lot of time to play with the beta candidate, but I keep running into missions where some aliens are not accessible on 2nd floors of ships. I really want to try out some of the later game stuff, so how have you guys been dealing with this issue while playing?
