Well you weren't supposed to do that anyway.

Probably. I did it because I think the scenario was boring. Commanding a larger size of army than I'm comfortable with, with no challenge and no difference to make. Had I known the bug, I would have undroided my side in time. But that was abrupt.

Sounds like a bug in the game engine, because the only event in the scenario that forces a player defeat requires Anlindë to die. I feel like I’ve heard of this in a different context (not in my campaigns) before.

this is actuall the expected 1.12 behaviour, as you said you droided your side so side 1 is now an ai side and when the game ends and there are only ai sides left it is a defeat unless the wml manually delcated a victory by [endlevel]. This behaviour was changed in 1.13.0 where the game engine now remembers that side 1 was originally a human side.

as a player you unfotnateley don't know whether a certain scenario uses the default victory or a custom endlevel, so ye your only 1.12. workaround is to undroid your side before the scneario ends.
Scenario with Robots SP scenario (1.11/1.12), allows you to build your units with components, PYR No preperation turn 1.12 mp-mod that allows you to select your units immideately after the game begins.
