Just listen to how she pronounces “koennen Sie mich hoeren” in the tutorial.

Long term it doesn’t matter too much, since you can use other forms of power instead. It may just make power a bit more of a challenge mid-game.

Honestly, I’d roll with it, especially if the steam vent is relatively close to the lift.

It all depends how big your soldier turnover is. If you lose quite a few, then it could be worth it.

Bearing in mind that the missions to gain additional soldiers could easily cost you some soldiers too. I tend to get missions for entirely the wrong soldier type as well :)

This ensured the following months were vastly easier.

Due to the enemies etc. ramping up in difficulty, I found this a lot easier than spending the resources elsewhere in the first month. Granted, you have a slightly harder time in the early missions, but it pays off significantly further down the line.

I just finished the first mission with no casualties and everyone ranked up. But the map layout only has 1 steam vent on the 3rd row. Should I just start all over, or this is fine?

Also take in count that the first month, you can spend your credits elsewhere instead of on the last satellites and facilites that need them to be constructed.
That does mean you are in advantage somewhere else using those resources.

Take back the same example, you leave Canada and Mexico without satellites, the abduction will only appear there in those two nations, so as long as you win the abduction missions, there will be no increasing in panic, since there aren’t “collateral nations” panicking in other continents.
Example : your mission is in Canada, Mexico panic 1, but you delete 1 panic from the continent, that does mean non increase in panic at all.
If you wish to have more choices (3) in the event abduction selection, you can leave 3 nations in a bigger continent like Europe.
