In the latest Summer Update (#43), the queen of Unaroyal chooses to rather destroy herself and thus make her entire side vanish, rather than have them be defeated and Decrypted by Wanda's forces. Okay, sure, not wanting to reinforce the enemy makes perfect sense.

But why did she do it this way, rather than simply running with however many units she could take, and (presumably) going barbarian when the capital city fell, saving as many of her troops as she could afford in the process, having the rest disband to not-payed upkeep? The way she chose seemed a bit... drastic to me. Was it the sorrow over losing her daughter, fear for a future with something as horrible as Decryption around, or am I just misunderstanding something about how Erfworld works?
