Haven't (fully) seen that episode yet but my best guess would be:

Got attacked by a spacefarer ... those do an insanely amount of stun damage with their "oh my god .. do floaters have psi already" kind of attack.

Yup, the ranged 'psi' attack of the Spacefarer deals 75 stun damage

Ah that explains why i could empty a complete medikit on those soldiers only to discover they rather like to lay down on their bed of roses.

I'm quite impressed that Batman went to the terror site to save civilians, but maybe he could have equipped his bat arsenal instead of going unarmed.

He panicked the first time he saw the aliens and dropped all the bat arsenal on the floor ;)

I'm glad I'm not Alfred cleaning out the batsuit ;)

Silly collaborators, you shouldn't be shooting the civs, let your chryssalid buddy infect them and make more friends for xcom to play with.

I've just got the Chryssalid Liner Ship on a February mission during my current campaign, just like Meridian had.



I didn't move from the starting LZ and used an HWP to block the door, while I managed to kill a lot of aliens through reaction fire and liberal use of rockets and high explosives. Then a Thin Man showed up and blew up 7 of my soldiers with an Elerium bomb. That was when I quit the mission.

Not sure if the game treats zombies as aliens for this screen. But in that case it could easily be
Code: [Select]
21-(7+9) = 5
In that case ... how did you manage to allow this infestation get out of hand Hobbes .. shame on you :p

Off course this is disregarding the falsified memories of you soldiers below the image which only serves to mask their failure  :P

P.s. I aborted that one as well ... using rookies as Hot-potato Chryssalid bate to mask the retreat

1/ the mission didn't terminate after I got a message that radars were destroyed.... not sure if that's just wrong description or game issue

2/ looks like I got the message before I destroyed all radars... at least I think so... no idea what counts as radar and what not

save attached... just after I got the message... there are some radars still in the top-right corner...

Thanks. People usually report bugs on the General Feedback thread, should I make a separate thread?

Might be the description, I'll check the save thanks!
