Defeated without losing a single soldier?

Recommended Posts

I just was handed a defeat after about 3 turns without losing a single soldier (see screenshot below).  Four members of the "local defense" are still alive.  All the civilians are dead, apparently--most of which I never saw.

Was I defeated because of the civilian deaths?  Previous to this battle, civilian deaths had no impact on the outcome.

Thanks for any clarification.

It was a terror mission with the map that looks a bit like a town center with some stores, a walkway, outdoor tables/chairs, etc.  First time I had that particular map for a battle.

It´s like the same what Terrorists do in our real World too. Such Terrorist People ignore Local Forces, Police, Military etc. and attack the Civilians, which are the least.

In Terror Missions the Aliens have the Mission to kill Civilians and Police / Local Forces. They ignore your Soldiers, so you have to hurry up to save the Local Forces as well as especially the Civilians.

Loss on turn 3 is a bit silly, guess this is why that other xcom game was forcing aliens to miss all the shots on civilians after two were already killed on the current turn
