Abduction missions: Our Soldiers were Taken!
« on: April 08, 2013, 08:44:27 pm »
ABDUCTIONS:

Initiate higher chance of our team must retreat / fall back.

Make the aliens drag away alive members of our team.

Display a message box: ALIENS CAPTURED X OF YOUR SOLDIERS

These unfortunates are dragged away and eaten alive.

Hypothetical:
"We could see aliens dragging away soldiers alive or as corpses to make tasty goo-soups from them."

Goal of alien missions could be Gathering Food, because the aliens are growing hungry. So if one of our bases is attacked, then we should panic / stress about how many of our people will be dragged away screaming...   just as in aliens to throw some to the Chryssalids.

So are you just asking for a new message box to rub it in our faces that we left soldiers behind?

Unless this comes with a new cinematic like when the playstation added ones for retreating and winning, I don't really see much value in this.
