The most common issues with losing civilians during the escort phase:
1. team members left their assigned zone and are escorting the wrong civilians to the wrong ship, you don't have enough people to kill the vampires fast enough to protect the civilians. Especially a problem when the alphas show up.
2. AFK team members
3. Team members get confused by the vampires and kill the civilians. Especially common with grenades and other aoe attacks.
4. bad coordination and the team gets too spread out. One guy runs ahead spawning lots of enemies, others don't herd the civilians so they get left behind.
One important thing to remember: you can revive dead civilians if you're fast enough.
When you have no healing on your team sometimes it's the only way to make it through the escort.
