Actually that's not true. If you lose the general, even if it has less than 3 armies, it still counts as a battle victory.
If less than 3 troops were eliminated, but at least 1 general was removed from the board, the combat is worth exactly 1 victory point.
I think these rules could be written a little better. It is hard to understand on first reading.
If 6 or more troops are eliminated = 2 victory points.
If 3 to 5 troops are eliminated = 1 victory point.
If 1 or 2 troops are eliminated and a general is removed from the board = 1 victory point.
Hope that helps,
