1.  INTRODUCTION
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is similar to ManlyChik's Bomberman Land Touch! 2 WiFi Scoring Guide
because I AM MANLYCHIK.

After a WiFi match, you will be taken to a 'Results' screen.  You have 60 
seconds to look over this Results screen.  On the top screen, each player, 
standings, and total scores will be shown in a chart.  On the 
bottom screen, your 'Bomber Rating', a 'Breakdown' button, and 'OK' button, 
are shown.  Pressing 'Breakdown' will display how your score, that will be 
added to your 'Bomber Rating', was calculated.  The following is a simple 
guide showing the possible outcomes displayed when you press 'Breakdown'.

The point system is actually quite different from the WiFi systems and
scoring systems of Bomberman Land Touch! 2 and Bomberman Stody DS.  There
are much more negative scores, whereas in previous versions, you always
got a positive score unless defeated multiple times.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2.  HOW TO USE
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The chart is quite simple.  On the right-hand side under 'Action' will be the
certain tasks that you can accomplish during a 'Bomber Battle'.  On the left-
hand side under 'Points' will be the number of points you gain, or lose, from 
its corresponding 'Action' to the right of it.

If there is a "(x1)" next to an 'Action' , then the number of points you gain 
from that task will vary depending on how many times you have performed that 
task.  For example, "Defeated Somebody (x1)      20" is displayed below.  So, 
if you defeat someone, you gain  20 points.  If you defeat another person or 
the same person again, you gain 40 points and so forth.  What is displayed 
below is how many points you gain from accomplishing an 'Action' once.

After the chart, there will be a descriptions section.  That will briefly 
describe how to accomplish each 'Action'.

NOTE: If the number under Points does not have a + or - sign next to it
(to the left of it), that score is from the older WiFi system's scoring 
system, and thus may not be accurate with Bomberman 2's WiFi scoring system.

5.  TIPS/STRATEGIES
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Some obvious yet useful tips to get higher scores.

ITEMS = POWER.  Having 2 points apiece for every item, all items are good if 
you want a high score.  This includes all power-downs, stars, and the skull 
is even a bonus.  Besides points though, items give you options.  More 
firepower and bombs will help you take on the other bomber and reveal more 
items.  Some speed can help you get away from another bomber, and kick bomb 
is always a lifesaver.

DEFEAT YOUR OPPONENT AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE.  This links with getting as many 
items as you can.  The more items, the more advantage you have of killing 
your opponent and getting a higher score.  Not sure if there's a name for it, 
but I know of two easy ways to kill people.  

1)  Run over the other bomber while constantly laying bombs.  Hopefully, 
you'll trap the bomber when he/she is not in an intersection and won't be 
able to kick the bombs to get out because of all the bombs.

    o = Had Blocks
    W = You
    B = Opponent Bomber
    @ = Bomb
                      W
    o o o o o o o o o o 
         @@@B@@@
    o o o o o o o o o o 

2)  Trap the other bomber in a grid-like fashion...

    o = Had Blocks
    W = You
    B = Opponent Bomber
    @ = Bomb
                                                  @ 
    o o o o o o o o o o                    o o o o o o o o o o 
                    W                       B     @ 
    o o o o o o o o o o                    o o o o o o o o o o 
                 @ @ @ @                          @ 
    o o o o o o o o o o                    o o o o o o o o o o 
               @ @                        @ @ @ @ @
    o o o o o o o o o o                    o o o o o o o o o o 
             @ @     B                                     W
    o o o o o o o o o o                    o o o o o o o o o o 
             @               

It doesn't have to be exactly like above, but as long as you set up your 
bombs such that no matter where the other bomber goes, he/she will die.  This 
is a more safer, guaranteed method than the first one, but is only 
recommended if the other bomber does not have Kick Bomb.

BEING DEFEATED > SUICIDE.  When someone has trapped you and your death is 
imminent, do not place another bomb such that your own bomb will kill you 
instead of the other bomber's bomb.  Take the hit.  The difference is a whole 
-20 points.  No one likes to earn negative score after the match.

TAKE YOUR TIME.  Mainly in Crown.  Once the other bomber dies, he cannot 
revive through revenge.  So get all the items, all the skulls, kick a bomb, 
throw a bomb, and if you wanna make the other player mad, wait until the last 
10 seconds.

AVOID BOMBS.  One cannot stress this enough.  The winner is the last one 
standing, not the one who kills the other.  Most players tend to die trying to 
pursue the other bomber.  You still want to go on the offense by attacking 
and trying to hinder the other bomber from getting more items.  But don't let 
that stop you from getting your own items while avoiding your own bomb's 
crossfire.  This is especially important in Escape stages.  Revenge bombs have 
been upgraded to a blast radius of 2, so watch out.  Not only do you have to 
avoid your bombs' blast radii, but stay away 2 spaces away from them.

In this new WiFi Scoring System, Hudson has made it so the survivor is almost
always the winner, and the loser almost always gets a negative score.  So if
you think you're gonna draw or die, don't suicide!  It is now worth -200
points!  The most points that can be subtracted from your score!

6.  SUGGESTIONS/CORRECTIONS/CONTRIBUTIONS
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The chart above is obviously not 100% accurate, but I would say maybe 90% 
accurate.  Some of the descriptions may be very vague, but most of them are 
self-explanatory.  There may be an 'Action' I have not accomplished yet.  If 
you notice any errors, discovered an 'Action' I have not yet mentioned, want 
to recommend a tip/strategy for WiFi, or leave a comment, please post in this 
game's forum or email me at the__mute@hotmail.com.  Any contributions are
greatly appreciated and proper credit shall be given as always.

some Bomberman WiFi.
