5. Questions and Concerns

Q: Why didn't XXXXX happen?
A: If a unit was not destroyed, it is probably luck. If the enemy is in a
strange position, retry the level. Also, make sure you do everything
correctly.

Q: There is something wrong with your guide!
A: That isn't a question. You can try to contact me via e-mail, but I don't
check that often. The most reliable way to get to me would be to PM me on
Advance Wars Network.

Q: What is the link to Advance Wars Network?
A: I will not say in this guide as that is advertising. Try talking to some
people on the board as a lot of them go there.

Q: What should I contact you about?
A: New strategies for levels to beat current ones, incorrect info in this
guide, or individual questions.

Q: What shouldn't I contact you about?
A: Small grammar/spelling mistakes. You will have to live with those.
