Hello everyone, I'm new here, and I recently stumbled across something in XCOM after several playthroughs I need help clarifying during and after the global defense in the Resolution Phase.
I've repeatedly read through the app to look for conditions about whether or not remaining UFOs that have not been destroyed or do not have Interceptors assigned stay on the board once the rolled tasks are completed. I've also been trying to find the timing of raising Panic during this step of the Resolution Phase because of one of the Mission Rewards that destroy UFOs.
In almost all of my games, I found this pointless except when getting rid of Orbital UFOs, and wondered if it could be used at all for Global UFOs. The app rules never state whether or not that non-destroyed UFOs are ever taken off the board at any point in the resolution phase. It also has made me wonder that even if these UFOs do stay, if completing the mission that destroys UFOs could reduce the panic on the continents the chosen UFOs were placed. If not, then what's the point of the destroy UFO rewards if they don't prevent Panic in either the Orbital or Global Defense since that's resolved before the mission? Hypothetically, wouldn't that reward be useful if Panic is raised at the *end* of the resolution phase from the remaining UFOs in their respective continents? Or do the UFOs just stay and roll over into the next round, making sense for the need to blow them up if they can start piling up in between rounds?
Thanks in advance for helping out!Edited by M1SF0RTUNE
