This general knowledge of how this guide and the War Room in Advance
Wars works.


---------------------------------------------------------------------
 1.1  Difficulty Meter Explanation
---------------------------------------------------------------------



* - This is a VERY easy level, it's not hard to get 999 points either.
** - This is a easy/normal level, but if you want S-rank you will have to
think.
*** - This is a normal/hard level, can be difficult.
**** - Very hard only experts gets good ranks on these.


---------------------------------------------------------------------
 1.2  Requirements Explanation
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Please e-mail me (lbarl1@yahoo.com) if you know any requirements that are not
posted (technique or power!

Power - How many units you have killed.
Technique - How many units can be killed.
Speed - How many days you spent on the map.

For every day extra, unit not destroyed, or unit killed/not built your meters
at the screen after you finished the battle will go down, if they are at max
you will get 999 points

999-950 S-rank 12 coins
949-850 A-rank 8 coins
849-700 B-rank 6 coins
699-500 C-rank 4 coins
499-300 D-rank 3 coins
299-000 E-rank 1-2 coins

I'm not quite sure about the points/rank/coins system please confirm/unconfirm


---------------------------------------------------------------------
 1.3 Advance Wars 2
---------------------------------------------------------------------

If any of you reading this guide has got hold of a catridge of Advance Wars 2:
Black Hole Rising please note that this guide and the strategies within are made
for the first Advance Wars and will probably not work as well on the sequal because
the COs have been tweaked to close perfection...

If you're wondering, yes, the original War Room maps are available in the sequal with
additional ten maps. Maybe I'll make a seperate guide for the sequal, eho knows.

Speed: 14


---------------------------------------------------------------------
1.2.1 Moji Island: CO Max S-rank day by day
---------------------------------------------------------------------

By: Miles A. Matthias

CO: Max
Rank: S
Days: 15

I took a day or two more than allowed or it would have been a perfect 999.

------
Day 1:
------
Create 2 infantry and an APC in the base below your HQ.

------
Day 2:
------
Move your infantry from your right base into the APC, move the APC as far right
as it can go into the forest and unload (he should be able to start capturing
the base next day). Move your other infantry along the left road. Create more
infantry and another APC, this time on the base left of your HQ.

------
Day 3:
------
Move your infantry from your right base into the APC and move it as far down
the road as you can (do not unload it, you're taking this one down towards the
base by the bridge), and move your other infantry down the road. Keep your
other APC 3 spaces away from your infantry who should be capturing the base in
the forest, so when he's done you can reload and transport him the other
direction. Create 2 recons for moving down the road.

--------------
Next few days:
--------------
You'll spend the next several days capturing cities. The goal is to clog up the
bridge so they can't get past it, but use recon to chase away distance units.
You need a rather large force of tanks and 1-2 Mid tanks by the bridge. In the
forest, Create a Mid tank first (it moves the slowest through the forest), then
a tank, then an Anti-Air, then tanks from there on out. By day 9-10 you need to
have several tanks by the bridge and at least the Mid tank and one tank at the
edge of the forests (avoiding distance range).

Grit would build more artillery than rockets luckily and station those by the
bridge. Use recon to keep them at a distance until you have enough units to
storm the bridge. When you do, use an empty APC or a tank to move everything in
range. Load up your other APC and keep it out of range. If you have a lot of
money (and space) to spare, you can build another APC and load it up. Next day,
take out as many units as you can, avoiding missile fire when possible (he
should have a rocket towards the back that will shoot something of yours,
probably your Mid Tank). Attack anything in range with your units from the
forest (probably infantry), but keep them out of the rocket's range by his HQ.

---------
Clean-up:
---------
Be careful what you put in range of the
missiles. Try for a capture win (probably faster if you play your cards right)
but you may not have a choice but to go for elimination. Don't use your CO
power until you can take out several units in the process (mainly it should be
used the day before you can wrap up the map, if for nothing else for power).
Rid Grit of his missiles ASAP if you can avoid their range; before his CO power
would help more.
I completed this map in 15 days in a situation where I could have won by
capture or elimination (I used elimination since I wasn't sure of the scores).
15 days does not give you a perfect speed score though. I'm not sure now
lenient the Technique score is since I didn't lose many units, so do as much
damage as fast as you can, but don't keep too many units in a position where
they can be slaughtered by the few Mid tanks Grit may have built.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
1.3.1 Duo Falls: CO Sami 999 points S-rank
---------------------------------------------------------------------

By: YoYoYoshi

CO: Sami
Rank: S (999)
Days: 6

Send infantry on transports to mad-rush the HQ, with a fighter and battle
copter to back them and get full speed.


---------------------------------------------------------------------
1.3.2 Duo Falls: CO Max S-rank
---------------------------------------------------------------------

By: YoYoYoshi

CO: Max
Rank: S
Days: 13

Start building infantries and one APC, get the APC with an infantry to the
base,
and use others to get the ones near your base. save up money and build an air
fleet of about 3 bombers with maybe 1 or 2 fighters to kill copters.
You should also make some a-air and tanks and occasionally a md tank.
Move your air fleet with a loaded t copter. Kill off kanbei's units in the
middle.
If you can destory his a-air and other units that may mess you up.
When you get to his base he we be distracted in the middle.
The only thing that might be in his base could be a tank, a-air, or b copter.
Most of them should have moved into the middle. Capture as normal.
If you can get your bombers to fight in the middle while you capture his hq.
Just kill most of the enemies in the middle to get full power.


---------------------------------------------------------------------
1.3.3 Duo Falls: CO Max S-rank day by day
---------------------------------------------------------------------

By: Kesuki

CO: Max
Rank: S
Days 13-15

------
Day 1:
------
Build 1 APC (SE factory) build 3 Infantry

------
Day 2:
------
Load the APC with the Southwest infantry move the APC 3 north/up, 3 east/right drop infantry east/right
(or north/up) Move the other two Infantry 3 east/right each and use the one to capture a
city Build APC at NorthEast/UpRight and AA at NorthWest/UpLeft factory

------
Day 3:
------
Finish capture, the Infantry you dropped last turn should capture the northeast
city on the north side of the road (not the northwest city because the infantry
that just captured a city is in range of that city) Load the APC with the
infantry next to your NE base and use the just built infantry to capture the
city there. Move the AA NE along the road. Move the loaded APC 1n,5e and drop
the infantry south in the forest there. Build Medium tank

------
Day 4:
------
Finish city captures, use the Infantry in the captured city to capture the
neutral city 3 north/up, Use the infantry in the forest to capture the factory 3S. Move
APC 4 west/left,1 south/down. Move AA 6 east/right. Move medium tank 2 north/up, 3 east/right Build tank

------
Day 5:
------
Save. Finish Captures. Load APC with the infantry on the SouthWest/Down/Left city by your
factory move the APC by the forest just east of the river and drop the infantry
there again. move the other infantry 2e onto the river. Move AA 2 east/right, 4 south/down. Move
medium tank 5 east/roght. Move tank 2 north/up, 4 east/right. (optional) Build 2 B-copters.

------
Day 6:
------
If you didn't build the B-copters there is a chance that Kanbei will move
his b-copter in range of your AA If you're no good with B-copters you should
try to get this 'lucky move' and build a bomber instead (when it won't
interfear with building medium tanks a few turns later) Personally I have
little difficulty S-ranking, so I will play without the 'lucky' move from here
on. Start the 2 city captures you can. Move both B-copters 6 east/right. Move AA 3 south, 3 east/right.
Infantry on base 2s, other infantry move in range of APC. Move Med. tank 1 east/right and 4 south/down.
move tank 5e,1s. Build Medium tank at East factory(new)

------
Day 7:
------
Finish captures. Check ranges. Load APC move loaded APC onto forest south of
newly captured city (within b-copter range) Move AA onto a forest due south of
APC. Blockade road with Med tanks but stay out of artilary range. Use tank to
blockade B-copter from infantry on forest Move B-copters behind medium tanks
out of B-copter range. Build Medium Tank at East Factory.

------
Day 8:
------
Laugh at Kanbei's military formation I count 5 confirmed kills for me and zero
kills for Kanbei next turn. Kill 1, AA kills the b-copter that attacked APC on
forest. Kill 2 Medium tank on city kills AA on road. Kill 3 Med. tank from
factory kills Artillary. Kill 4 B-copters kill Infantry capturing city. Kill 5
Med. tank on road kill AA on plain. Medium tank wait on south city All infantry
move south one on forest goes 2s,1e Move APC onto city near river (the one
outside his rocket range) Build Anti-air or medium tank your choice at east
base. If you build an AA you may choose to build a T-copter and infantry or
mech at the southeast factory/airport or a B-copter or if you didn't build
b-copters before (because you don't like them) you can build a bomber.

------
Day 9:
------
Use wounded B-copter to wound an infantry (leave it over the water though.) Use
AA to kill his B-copter. Use full B-copter and tank to kill infantry south of
Rockets. Use medium tanks to kill South infantry, rockets, and wound the tank
on top of airport. Move APC up to next city in range, Start 2 city captures.
Move whichever unit(s) you opted to build last time east. move remaining
infantry 3s (just south of factory) build your favorite Max unit at east base
(mine are Med. tanks but I always try to have 2 AA )

-------
Day 10:
-------
Laugh at Kanbei using his power up. Use intel to ensure you've lost 0 units and
save. Finish captures. Kill wounded tank with tank, kill T-copter with AA. Kill
9hp infantry trying to city capture with AA and wounded b-copter (Anti-Air
should use the east forest so it's in a good position.) Check range on his AA
and use your medium tanks to kill his infantry and wound his mech. move the
other medium tank onto the city. move B-copter over the sea close to Kanbei's
HQ but out of AA range. Move units east. You can Probably stop building at this
point too, but If you find yourself short build air units.

-------
Day 11:
-------
You have max force but I prefer to save it for the final blow to Kanbei. Kill
his wounded AA with your farthest away unit (mine was my secondary AA) Kill his
wounded Mech with your wounded tank. Use farthest med. tank to kill nearby
artillery. next farthest to kill APC and nearest to kill farther artillery. Use
AA and wounded b-copter to kill infantry he built. block his factory but leave
his airport open (if you have 2 full AAs) use B-copter to kill T-copter.
Seriously this fight is over STOP BUILDING you loose points for building at
this point.

-------
Day 12:
-------
Do any captures, use an AA to kill his b-copter and capture his airport and
stuff I combine my wounded B-copters and move stuff forward. be careful about
how you kill off his stuff you want to loose the least amount of life from your
units as possible.

-------
Day 13:
-------
I generally break down and "maxforce" by this turn even though I can't kill him
yet You need to kill him today for a Perfect 999 S-rank though. Day 14 If you
did it right you were Just able to kill him today. for a 990-point S-rank! If
you were a better tactician than I was you killed him a turn before for a 999
S-rank!

---------------------------------------------------------------------
1.4.1 Sole Harbour: CO Max S-rank
---------------------------------------------------------------------

By: YoYoYoshi

CO: Max
Rank: S
Days: 18
Points: 985

Build infantry to capture cities southwest and east. Send middle tanks,
regular tanks, and a few rockets as well as infantry to capture cities
and the eastern port. Keep on making middle tanks to attack. Once you
defeat those, go for the win by capturing the enemy HQ.


---------------------------------------------------------------------
1.4.2 Sole Harbour: CO Grit S-rank day by day
---------------------------------------------------------------------

By: Miles A Matthias

CO: Grit
Rank: S
Days: 22

What made this funny was I used an incredibly basic strategy and got an S-Rank
out of it. Hey, it works, why complain I guess. One Thing I will say, either
this mission is very harsh on the technique score, or Drake's CO power counts
against it, because I lost two units, APCs, and that's it. I never even took
any other real damage save Drake's CO and it wasn't perfect. At least the
speed's rather lenient.

------
Day 1:
------
Create an APC in the base second farthest from the road, infantry in the
others.

------
Day 2:
------
Move the far infantry into the APC, drive it down towards the western cities
(unload when it will put your infantry close enough to start capturing the next
day. Start capturing cities with the other infantry. Create the same units
again.

-------------------------------
Day three and from here on out:
-------------------------------
You'll be making NOTHING but rockets (with one exception, will get to later).
Continue to capture cities with your infantry (using your APCs as faster
transports) until you get to the forest. Don't head into the forest, nor should
you head to the northern cities. When making your rockets, do NOT move them
into range of enemy vehicles, especially tanks, and again don't go into the
forest or move up north yet. The goal is to create a ton of rockets and get
them right outside the forest so they can take down anything coming through it.
If anything's in range, kill it, rather than moving your units. You need to
build up your CO power. The destroyer he'll build to the south is an exception,
leave that alone for a while since it won't do anything.

The other key to this mission is APCs. Because you can't always have your
missiles on cities, you'll need to refuel ammo, so have at least 2 APCs around,
and if you ever have less, spend a day and build more rather than missiles.
Also towards the beginning of the mission when you don't have a lot of missiles
to deal damage with, his units will get near yours and you need something to
take the damage away from your missiles. They make great blockades and decoys,
but if you're going for S-Ranks you should already know that.

Drake's CO power is the biggest annoyance on this level. It weakens your
Missiles and slows down the pace. For this reason I keep as many Missiles on
cities for repairing, and get others repaired when possible. Using this guide
he'll have to deal with it at least 4 times while only getting 1, maybe 2 CO
powers yourself (I finished the mission using my second), so be prepared.
When the North clears and you can protect the path from anything getting up
there, get an infantry to capture the Seaport ASAP (He may not make anymore
units even if you don't capture it, but best not to chance it) and destroy the
Sub he created. Also destroy the destroyer at this point. From there, it's just
killing off anything he creates and avoiding damage to your Missiles (VERY
IMPORTANT!!!)

As a last note, I took 22 days on this mission because I wanted to be a bit
conservative, I don't suggest taking any more than that, or you risk losing the
S-Rank and having to settle for an A.

The basic strategy is to build 2 infantries and an APC. Ignore the center isle,
since it's completely useless in this mission let Eagle waste time taking it
over.
Move the infantry and APC (carrying the other infantry) to the factory below
ASAP.
Day 2 create a tank and infantry. Move all troops below and try to capture
factory and city. Day 3 create anti air gun. Day 4 one more anti air gun +
infantry.
Day 5 you should have factory below and you'll meet the wave of Eagle first
troops from his base.

Just continue to crank out tanks anti air in the factory below
(do not produce anything at your old base anymore) and move your troops east.
Eagle should be distracted capturing the middle isle. So after you clear out
the wave of enemy on the bottom of the path to Eagle's base should be clear.
Load you're APCs with infantries and move everything you have towards
Eagle's base. Create a medium tank and block the bridge from the middle isle,
since Eagle doesn't have bombers at this point he can't do anything about it.
At this point your infantry should be capturing his base, his 4 factory
around base should be occupied by your APC, 2 anti-airs and a tank and
surrounded by other troops you brought.

Build a couple of APCs and infantries, and while your infantries
capture the base/air etc, use your APCs as cannon fodder.
Build an anti air at your base for defense, and rush his HQ with some tanks,
an anti air and a medium tank, along with the infantry to capture it
(an APC for drawing attacks it nice to). You want to do this
while he is still concentrating on the "pivotal island". Using that strategy,
I got a 997 S. I might have got the 999, but messed up a bit on the positions
during the raid.

Send infantry through APCs south to capture factories and ports while
defending against Drake's invasions. Once you've secured the territory, send
in landers to the eastern half of Drake's island with middle tanks and
infantry while defending the sea with a few battleships. Work your way west
after sending in more and more troops through landers, weakening Drake until
you can take out his headquarters.


---------------------------------------------------------------------
1.7.2 Kita Straight: CO Grit S-rank day by day
---------------------------------------------------------------------

By: Kesuki

CO: Grit
Rank: S
Days: 25-29

I'm only going to give you the first 15 days because that's all you need IMO.
Some things to keep in mind while playing as grit. Don't use your CO power
unless you've positioned your units for maximum kill zone. This is a long
battle but grit should only get his CO power twice, and Drake should only get
his 2-3 times. Use intel to watch where drake's CO is at. Grit's strength on
this map is speed and technique. Once you've got enough ranged units build some
Medium Tanks and get his power filled. I consider 5 battleships, 5 rockets and
3-4 artillery 'enough' ranged units it's amazing how fast you can get this, if
you time your CO power usage to overlap with drake when his units are flashing.
The second best time is when his meter has tripped on his turn, and if that
happens it's almost always better to use your CO power than to 'wait'.

------
Day 1:
------
Build 1 APC and 1 infantry.

------
Day 2:
------
If you're trying for a 999 point s rank you'll want to save here, you'll need
to reset a few times to make sure Drake plays the right moves for a 999 point.
If you're just going for 950+ you don't need to save. Load your APC move it
3e,2s. Build lander (east) and 2 infantry at the east side.

------
Day 3:
------
Load Lander and go 6s. Capture city. Move APC 1n,1w. Build 2 infantry and 1 APC
The eastern most base should be an Infantry and the one that is 1n,1w of that
should be the APC. the western most base isn't used to build.

------
Day 4:
------
999 point players should start watching what Drake builds and making sure it's
a. expensive and b. ineffective against grit. Ranged units and landers are the
ideal, subs other than the first one are your bane. Finish capture. Move lander
into neutral port and drop infantry, if you drop one south that one must begin
capture on the port next time otherwise it's not important which infantry does.
Load APCs the one father back should go as far as it can and unload south. The
other APC should go to the maximum movement range of the dropped infantry and
drop within range of a city. build 1 infantry and 2 Artillery.

------
Day 5:
------
Start Captures of 3 Cities and 1 port(move lander 1w,5n.) Load southern APC,
and move 3s and drop infantry south. Move remaining infantry 2s,1e and position
north apc 2e,1s of that position. move Artillery as far along road as they go.
Build Artillery at eastern most base.

------
Day 6:
------
Finish captures (4) Start Base Capture. Load North APC, move 2s,4e drop south.
Move the other APC 2s,2e. Move Artillery along road. Move lander to port. build
nothing.

------
Day 7:
------
Finish base capture, Start 2 city captures. Load 2 APCs, North APC drives 5s
and drops East or north, the other one drops next to it and drops south. Move
Artillery to the spot 2N and 3N and 3n,1e of the newly captured Base Build
Cruiser at West Side seaport (new capture)

------
Day 8:
------
Finish captures(2). Start capture of port and use west infantry to start a city
capture. The other infantry that can capture should attack the infantry
capturing a city south. Load APC and move it to the southern most city block,
drop on infantry. Move artillary into spaces 1s an 1e and 2w of new base .
Recharge Artillary 1s of base with remaining APC. Move cruiser 1w. move lander
6s build battleship at west port.

------
Day 9:
------
Use 1e Artillery to kill his 7 hp infantry, then Finish captures (2) start
captures (4). Wounded Cruiser(8/7hp) wounds to 1 or 2 hp Drake's Sub.
Battleship wounds medium tank. North APC moves 2 west to city within Med Tank
fire range. Artillery 1s moves 2s,1w, Artillery 2w moves 1w to city. South APC
recharges Artillery in forest, but stays out of med. tank range. move lander
4s. Build rocket at central base.

-------
Day 10:
-------
Finish captures (3) 2/3 capture (1) start capture (1). Move unwounded APC to
city near east side seaport and load infantry. Use artillery on forest to
wound/kill Med. tank. Move Battleship 2w,3s. move 7hp cruiser to port. Move
rockets and artillery towards southwestern shore. Move lander 2s,1e. move
wounded APC to SW city. I Build a cruiser at east side sea port, to combat any
subs he may build in future turns.

-------
Day 11:
-------
From this point on Drake is pretty chaotic, sometimes he'll try send 1 unit up
at a time sometimes 2 units but in any case he's pretty easy. What you're
looking for is that he sends up expensive units that you can pulverize while
still in the landers. you're also watching out for subs. Finish Captures(2)
start capture(1). Wound tank with artillery. load west APC (mine is full hp)
move to blockade tank from damaging your rocket. Position artillery and rockets
for maximum coverage of the south western coast--avoid drake's rocket range
though. Position lander out of sub and rocket range, but towards drake. Make
sure Battleship is out of sub attack range but don't attack. Move east cruiser
south then Build lander at east port load APC and move infantry in loading
range. Drake should be at a hair shy of CO power just where you want him.

-------
Day 12:
-------
What you're looking for here is that your rocket is at least at 9 hp. Finish
city capture. Kill his tank and medium tank with artillery today, and wound a
transport of his with another one. Move your Rocket onto your southern most
city in range of his rocket. You can ignore his rocket in preference for a
lander this turn. It's lucky to get the lander to 2 hp. Move your west side
cruiser near your B-ship. Move lander out of rocket range. I move my east side
cruiser onto the reef. Build a B-ship at your eastern port.

-------
Day 13:
-------
Use Battleship to wound his rockets. use cruiser and land units to form a
blockade, my blockade went as follows from west to east Bship,cruiser,10hp
artillery,(jags along coast)Infantry, APC, Infantry, Infantry, lander. My
rockets wounds his rockets(to 2 hp), my battleship wounds his AA, and I put my
Lander 1n,1e of my cruiser. my wounded artillery rest on cities one on the
southernmost city next to my rockets. The other artillery should be on the
eastern city in it's block. build artillery at central base.

-------
Day 14:
-------
This day takes a little luck. you should have enough to build a battleship and
a rocket, this won't happen if the anti-air attacked your rockets. Save your
power and Don't trip drake into his CO power, just kill his landers and wound
his sub and do clean up. You should be able to land 2 loaded APC and an
infantry on his continent as well. Move your cruiser into the shadow of his 3hp
rocket. move your east side Battleship in range of his seaport. If you have a
choice between destroying a 1hp lander with 2 infantry or a 3 hp rocket take
the 3 hp rocket. Build a Battleship on West side, and a rocket at your central
base.

-------
Day 15:
-------
Drake is close enough, use your CO power now. You should be able to destroy a
lot. Don't unload your APCs. If you have an artillery that can't fire load it
in your transport. also load any 10 hp infantry. you should be able to start
capturing the east seaport on drake's island too. You have a huge money
advantage over Drake.

You must finish Drake off by your day 25 turn (before you 'end' day 25) if you
use a HQ capture for a perfect 999 point score, or by before day 26 for victory
by destroying all his troops. and you need to kill 5-6 units with direct combat
to get max power. It's pretty easy from here though. I have two branches from
day 5 this one is better suited for 999 point s-rank, if you can't S-rank from
here the other branch from day 5 might be a little easier to S-rank with, but
you'll have lower speed or power because of all the Rockets built early on.

The other strategy I also only wrote out to day 11 because my power was so low
that I only got a 956. You also have to get 'lucky' if you are the first sub he
builds will go after the lander near your HQ ignoring the Battleship

------
Day 5:
------
Start Captures of 3 Cities and 1 port(move lander 1w,5n.) Load southern APC,
and move 3s and drop infantry south. Move remaining infantry 2s,1e and position
north apc 2e,1s of that position. move Artillery as far along road as they go.
build nothing.

------
Day 6:
------
Finish captures (4) Start Base Capture. Load North APC, move 2s,4e drop south.
Move the other APC 2s,2e. Move lander to port. Move Artillery along road. Build
Rocket at eastern most base.

------
Day 7:
------
Finish base capture, Start 2 city captures. Load 2 APCs, North APC drives 5s
and drops East or north, the other one drops next to it and drops south. Move
Artillery the the spot 3N and 2N of the newly captured Base, move Rocket along
road 5 spaces. Remaining Infantry moves 1e,2s. Build Cruiser at northwest port.

------
Day 8:
------
Finish captures(2). Start capture of port and use west infantry to start a city
capture. The other infantry that can capture should attack the infantry
capturing a city south. Load APC and move 2w of enemy infantry and drop south
onto city. Move north artillery 1s of new base and move the other artillery
next to it. Move rocket 5 spaces along road, build rocket at new base. Recharge
one of your Artillery with remaining APC. Move cruiser 2 south of lander.

------
Day 9:
------
If sub surfaced next to your port attack with cruiser. Move rocket on road 5
spaces along road. Move one APC onto a city (forest for 999 point wanna bes)
within range of medium tank that was dropped (he shouldn't have dropped an AA
if he did you won't get a 999 point S-rank.) The remaining APC should recharge
the rocket that just came down the road. Move newly built rocket 2s and build a
new rocket. Use an Artillery to kill his 7 hp infantry and move the other on on
a forest 1 space away from Med. tank range as far s,w as possible. Finish
captures (2) start captures (4).

-------
Day 10:
-------
Finish captures (3) 2/3 capture (1). use artillery and rocket south of mid
island base to wound/kill medium tank. Move infantry towards cities, move
rockets along road, move other artillery to southwest of island. If you're
going for 999 points you should have enough to build a Battleship now. If not I
recommend building a cruiser at the east side seaport.

-------
Day 11:
-------
Finish capture, kill sub Build Battleship at west side port, move wounded APC
out of artillery range move full life APC into it's range (on city) weaken tank
with Artillery. Start city capture, move infantry towards cities, leave road
open. Move Rockets and artillery towards south-western shore. leave cruiser in
port. Do obligatory city captures. Make sure you didn't loose an APC and try to
reposition units for maximum repair next turn. Build lander at east port.

1.12.2 Toil Ferry: CO Max S-rank day by day
---------------------------------------------------------------------

By: COAndy (http://www.marioworldhq.cjb.net)

CO: Max
Rank: S
Days: 17


---------------------------------------------------------------------
WARNING! THIS ONLY WORKS ONCE! IF YOU CAPTURE THE HQ, NEXT TIME YOU PLAY, GRIT
WILL PLUG UP THE HQ WITH TANKS AND ROCKETS, SO IF YOU MESS UP, DON'T SAVE!
---------------------------------------------------------------------

------
Day 1:
------
Build two infantry

------
Day 2:
------
Build a transport copter, and a infantry. send the two infantry capture citys,
and the airport, and the harbor, and the rest of the citys.

------
Day 3:
------
Build another transport copter, and a infantry. continue capturing
propierities.

------
Day 4:
------
Continue building transport copters and infantry, and loading them into one
another. Keep going untill you have 5 transport copters filled with infantry.

----------
Next days:
----------
When you have 5 transport copters and infantry in them: You should have
captured most of the properties by now. Save up for a bomber. Send your
transport copters all the way north, AND STAY IN FORMATION! ALWAYS HAVE YOUR
COPTERS CLUSTERED AS CLOSE TOGETHER AS POSSIBLE!

When you have a bomber: Go after landers and infantry on the middle island, to
build up your power rating. Wacth out though, Grit may build a fighter, so
start saving for a fighter. Send your copters all the way to the right, and, as
always, keep them in tight formation.

When you have a figher: Partroll the area for copters and fighters and bombers,
shoot them down when you have the chance. Build battle helicopters from now on.

Next Turn: Move your copters to the enemy HQ, dropping the infantry on the
bases, and one of them on the HQ. Use your battle helicopters, fighters, and
bombers to wreck havoc on anything south of the area. REMEMBER: LEAVE THEM IN
THE SOUTH AREA OF THE MAP, DO NOT ENGAGE ANYTHING UP NORTH, UNLESS ITS A ENEMY
BOMBER!

Start capturing the enemy HQ, but grit probably attacked it with a long range
weapon, so capture the HQ, then combine the infantry with a fresh one. Attack
rockets and mechs, if grit has any in the area, but do not leave the bases
open. Make sure to have a copter or something sit on them.

Now repeat the above step for 1 or 2 days, and walla! You get a 999 point
score! NOTE: YOU CANT LOSE A SINGLE UNIT TO GET A 999 score, so if something
gets into trouble, combine it with a another unit, or retreat! You can always
heal that unit.

For a really quick win you need a little luck --
Kanbei should build all his tanks on the left side and
send the only one he built on the right side across to
the left behind the mountain range.

------
Day 1:
------
Nothing

------
Day 2:
------
Build APC (south) and Infantry (north)

------
Day 3:
------
Save
Send APC and Infantry SE to a forest.
Build Infantry

------
Day 4:
------
Kanbei sent the tank he built west behind the mountain
range, if not restart. If he built a Medium tank or
tank on the east side Restart.
Move your APC to the east side on the plains outside
his range.
Start building mechs and Artillery

------
Day 5:
------
you can probably only move your APC a little it's
okay though
keep cranking out mechs and capturing nearby cities.

------
Day 6:
------
Kanbei sent the tank he built west behind the mountain
range, if not restart. If he built a Medium tank or
tank on the east side Restart.
Move your APC to the east side on the plains outside
his range.
Wow -- He just Ignored your APC what an idiot.  move
it in range of his east factories and drop your
infantry east.
If you haven't got an artillery yet you'll want one.
you should have at least 2 mechs too.

------
Day 7:
------
Okay your infantry was dropped next to his factory,
but does he build anything? NO does he move any tanks
in? NO. take over his factories to teach Kanbei a
lesson and use the APC to block the other one.
Oh what does he think he's doing sending an artillery
and a tank into your territory anyways? Hit his tank
in the artillery's blind spot make sure your artillery
is on your HQ and build some mechs -- outside the
artillery range.

------
Day 8:
------
Finish off his tank and his Artillery if you can
Finish taking his factory
Build more mechs.

------
Day 9:
------
Well you Could take his HQ now but you only killed 2
units so far you're better off going to day 12 and
trying to kill 6 of his units.

T-Copter and load it with an infantry unit. Move it as far as it
will
go every turn toward the enemy HQ, dodging any fighters and B-Copters
that
get near you. Once you get near the HQ you may find a few units lurking
about, but these will ignore you and move off along the north-south

Once all is clear (or before if you're brave!) land your copter and

begin capture of base and move lander 2N,5W next to reef, build
a battleship on Australia port

-------
Day 8:
-------
Use rockets to kill infantry on your base, shoot anything
with your battleship, move your forest infantry E to sea

-------
Day 9:
-------
Use weakened lander to save wounded inf. on Aus.  Move NZ
inf. 3E.
Use battleship and south Rocket to kill infantry invading your
base, then build an Mid. tank there.  Use the other rocket to kill
biggest threat to your MD tank.  finally, build an APC and
another infantry with west bases.

--------
Day 10:
--------
Laugh if you see land units attack your battleship.  NZ
infantry should start capturing cities moving southward.  Move your
lander straight north (should be north of a rocket).  Ready
your fresh infantry to board it.  Build a 3rd rocket and recharge
your rockets with APC.  shoot what you want with your other
units.

From here on, defend your MD tank with your long range units.
Load your lander, use the APC to fuel it and send it along the
North coast.  Keep capturing cities on New Zealand.  1st priority is to
build another battleship to attack Drake's battleship (build it
out of range and attack with CO power).  Attack any subs that
come north, but don't kill them.  4 units or less will do
laughable damage to your battleships.  Towards the end, build
Rockets on New Zealand.  Around day 20, your CO meter should be full
again, but save it for the day you capture Drake's HQ.

That after about 40 tries was my best score.
I don't think Max can pull an S-rank.

Capture the nearby factory first.  build anti-air on day two


The day Sonja builds her first battleship save.  Do random stuff until you
see her ship go straight North.  If you're lucky she MIGHT go south of your
island, but most of the time she goes straight towards your HQ.

She'll send a steady stream of copters to your HQ.  I kept 2 anti-air nearby.

When your inf. are near the port, she'll send her battleship to get you.
Distract her with a supply of APCs.  You can try to use artillery to take the
battleship out.

You'll need an invasion force to take the airport.  I used 3 MD tanks,
3 anti-air, 1 artillery and a bunch of APCs.  When the airport was mine,
I had about $40000 to spend.

I built a bomber, T copter, then Jet, in that order.

At the port, I built a sub, then a transport.  That was enough to stop Sonja's
navy. My bomber took out her anti-air boat, my sub and artillery took out her
battleship. My lander was attacked at a reef (sometimes it wont survive, i.e.
save at the reef) Next turn, I used Max power to injure her sub.  By then it
was running low on fuel, so it didn't bother to finish my lander off.

When I invaded, I had to keep resetting until the only threat to me was some
missiles. Take advantage of their firing range.  You can land or attack under
its range.

In the meantime, I had my original MD tanks hold off the eastern end of my
island.

Move the Recon as far NE as possible (end of the road).
Move the north infantry 3 east and the other two south
to the river ignore the city for now you want the
factories south of the river.
Build 4 infantry

-------
Day 3:
-------
cross the river with two infantry
send the other old infantry 3 more east ignore those
cities you'll get them soon
send the SW Infantry to capture the city by your HQ.  Move
the other three as far east as they can (almost a
Tetris L shape formation)
send the recon on top of the factory
Build a tank at your NE factory

-------
Day 4:
-------
Blue Max should have kept his tank near his base If
not you're hosed.  If he did Save then use the recon
to attack it from the forest south of it
your infantry should move as follows. Finish the city
capture, start getting the two south factories the one
in the forest should go 3 north and the Tetris
formation should become a bracket where that infantry
was positioned start the capture of those cities
move your tank to the spot east of the end of the
road.
Build a tank at your NE factory

-------
Day 5:
-------
Blue max should have kept his tank back again if so
save.
Infantry should finish captures and start on the
factory on the road to blue max.  The infantry that is
in the forest should move 1s2e the one in the city
should cross the river south.  Use one tank to kill
Blue Max's APC and move the other one where it is.
Build a recon at NE base

-------
Day 6:
-------
Finish Factory capture and start 4 city captures north
side you should have an infantry ready to move 1s2e
and south side one ready to go 2s Move your new recon
4 east.
Combat moves are pretty simple wound his AA in with
your tank (staying in the rockets no-fire zone) and
use your recon to kill his 2 hit infantry move your
other tank to the plain near your factory there
Build a tank on the south side

-------
Day 7:
-------
Finish all captures. Combat moves are to kill(or
wound) Blue Max's rocket with a tank then use your
recon and wounded infantry to kill his infantry. You
should be able to use the forest to wound max's tank
to 1 hp without taking any damage on your tank.  Your
second recon should be moved as far southeast as it
can go. You should move the infantry nearby 3 east
On the south side move your tank one east and your
infantry 3 east.  Build one medium tank at your
north-central factory (on the road to Blue max)
-------
Day 8:
-------
On the north side Blue max just wasted his overdrive
if you were lucky his rocket survived and just drained
his cash pretty hard you want to hit his rocket with
your 1 hp tank so that you can make sure he Never has
the cash to build a medium tank, without losing too
many HP from your medium tank If you're really lucky
he's using 60% of his daily income on unit repairs
this is going to really hurt him and let you kill him
by day 13 leave your south formation alone except
moving an infantry off a city that Isn't in grits
rocket range you want to get hit by a rocket to
ensure you can use a power up next turn. Wound Max's
APC with your tank and his infantry with your recon.
Block grit's northward incursion by capturing cities
and factories and moving your recon in place to repel
his infantry.

Kill max's tank with your medium tank.  Today you
build a medium tank and an APC the medium tank at your
North central factory and the APC at your NE HQ
factory. Start capturing that other neutral city and
send your 4 or 5 hp infantry to heal

-------
Day 9:
-------
Let blue max heal again this time he should be using
72% of his income 'healing' and use the shadow of his
rocket to kill his full life tank and move towards his
base. Finish captures and use your recon to hit grit's
infantry. On the south side move your wounded infantry
out of the line of fire and move your tank into it
killing an infantry build a medium tank and leave a
full life infantry where it will draw grit's tank fire
safely.
Move APC towards max

--------
Day 10:
--------
Grit should build an infantry not a rocket on the
factory closest to you Save if this happens.
Save your max force because it's more needed on day
11.

On the north side my basic strategy is pretty simple
kill his AA (with 8 hp med. tank) and kill his mech
with my full med. tank I use my tank to cripple his
mech on a factory.  then I weaken his rocket  with my
1 hp tank from the road and I move my empty APC as far
east the infantry is of course that 8 hp one I put it
on my factory and by next turn it'll be ready for
action.  I move my 7 hp recon into the shadow of the
rocket so it can be used for rocket cleanup next turn.
in the middle area I use my recon to wound the
infantry in front of it and move the wounded infantry
back and use the one on the factory to wound the one
in the river (in front of it)

On the south side I try to move my infantry out of
harms way as well as the wounded tank and use my
medium tank to kill one of his tanks and build a
second medium tank
I also send the full HP infantry south across the
river

--------
Day 11:
--------
If Max builds an Anti-air SAVE this is the best possible
thing!
Max Force! Combat
South side I send my wounded infantry north use my new
medium tank to kill his infantry and my wounded medium
to kill his wounded tank.  In the center I use my
recon to make sure grit can't get a foot hold and
finish sending my 6 hp infantry to heal and use my 10
hp (from the north) infantry to capture that last
neutral city. The other infantry kills/wounds grits
6/7 hp infantry

North side I use my medium tank to kill the AA he
just built and the full HP mech I use the recon to
clean up the 5hp mech and use my 9 hp tank to wound
the infantry he built I then the 1 point to finish the
kill.

--------
Day 12:
--------
South side I like to move a medium tank on the city in
range of grit's rockets so I know what grit will do
with it I put my wounded tank on the city that isn't
in range of grits weapons and build TWO medium tanks
down south

North Side if he put his tank in range of you kill it
and his rockets too if he's running scared ignore
them. And focus on making sure that your infantry can
capture his HQ uncontested and that max is unable to
wound you.  From this point he's officially out of the
game, because you have a half captured HQ of his and
he has nothing that can touch you...
I try to make sure that I'm still good in the central
by moving wounded infantry and building a mech.

From this point on there is no challenge in winning,
only in getting a good rank, I recommend saving on
turns you know are 'golden' and trying again and again
until you can figure out a way to win with Zero unit
loss, within the 20-22 day S-rank time limit for this
map

LoZoDudes words of advice:

Here's how to do it much quicker. Once you have all of Eagles cities and bases
to just destroy a few units for power and just try to capture Sami HQ...
you don't need to build tons of units to destroy Sami's... just distract her

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

These formations are from the official Advance Wars website.


---------------------------------------------------------------------
4.1.1 Flying Column
---------------------------------------------------------------------

*Tank* *Artillery* *Rockets* *APC*

The first formation called a flying column backs a Tank/Mid. Tank with two
indirect units and
an APC. The tank/Mid. Tank takes the enemy fire, while rockets and artillery
clear the way.
Use the APC to refuel as needed


---------------------------------------------------------------------
4.1.2 Circled Wagon
---------------------------------------------------------------------

       *Tank*
*Tank* *APC* *Infantry*
     *Infantry*

Once a unit is surrounded on all four sides it can be attacked only by either
eliminating
a guard unit or using long range weapons. Using circled wagons is a handy way
to protect APC's
missiles, rockets and even your bases and HQ

You can also surround an enemy fighter with four ground units or an enemy
ground unit
(not Anti-Air) with four fighters


---------------------------------------------------------------------
4.1.3 Leapfrogging Units
---------------------------------------------------------------------

                       *Mid. Tank*
*Recon* *Blank* *Blank* *Recon*

Don't get ahead of yourself while advancing. Make sure speedy units, like
recons, stay in
range of other units for protection. If you leave an unprotected unit in the
open, it will
be destroyed in a matter of moments

4.3 Tricks
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=


---------------------------------------------------------------------
If you don't want opponent to build more units place a strong unit on top
of the base and then he can't build anything on that base.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
You can also capture your opponents bases.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
If you capture a HQ when there are more then two players you get all that
teams bases and money, so when there are a map with three COs go for one HQ,
the strongest CO first then you get a lot of money to battle the other
opponent.

4.4 Units Tactics
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=


---------------------------------------------------------------------
4.4.1 General
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Buy different units!

When playing against Grit or in Fog of War you should have recons because they
are fast and has good vision range.

Battle Copters are good against Mid. Tanks so use them wisely, and watch out
for them.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
4.4.2 Sea Units
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Sub attacks Battleship.
Battleship attacks Cruisers.
Cruisers attacks Subs.

Battleships can also attack subs, but when they are dived they can't be
attacked by indirect combat units.

Subs can also attack Cruisers, but they usually loose more than they gain.

Cruisers can't attack battleships. Cruisers are good against air units and can
be very dangerous because they are hard to kill, need battleship or other
indirect unit. Battleships costs 28 000 and it can take a while to save up.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
4.4.2 Indirect Units
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Rockets should have an APC with them to refuel with rockets, they get empty
fast.

Indirect units should be behind a line of Tanks/Mid. Tanks/APC/Mechs (while
playing with Sami).

You know that Max isn't very good with indirect units but you should by some on
or two artilleries, only 6 000, just keep them safe they can be usefull.

Unless you really need a rocket I think two artilleries are better (at least
with Grit) They only have one square less attacking range and is a lot cheaper
only 6 000 compared to rockets 15 000. Two for 12 000, 3 000 extra for you!

Missiles can be useful, but they only work against air units and gets fast
useless, you might want to go with anti airs instead, unless you are Grit.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
4.4.3 Ground Units
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Sami is pretty good if you have a lot of mechs, but you should have a couple of
APCs to refuel (only 3 rockets)

Mid. Tanks are good but buy different units!

4.5 Winning a map
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=


There are several ways of winning a map:
---------------------------------------------------------------------
You can rush to the HQ as fast as possible, this will give you good speed and
technique score but you will have low power score if you don't kill any units.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
You can take your time and kill all of your opponents units but your speed
score will be low.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
