0. Version History
------------------

1.02 (02-19-13) -- It's been a while, huh? I finally beat Mission 80, so now
I can update this again! Missions 81-100 in E1 have been added, meaning that
Episode 1 is now complete! I also corrected a few typos in the walkthrough.

0.82 (11-16-12) -- We're getting close to 1.0, folks! Missions 69-80 in E1
have been added. In addition, Slinder of the official forums has complied a
list of the longest songs in Audition, which I have linked in 5. Additional
Tips.

0.70 (11-13-12) -- I guess I lied last update. Missions 66 and 68 in E1 have
been added. I also changed up a bit of strategy--my apologies for not knowing
what I wrote in sooner.

0.68 (11-11-12) -- There goes my roll. Missions 61-65 and 67 in E1 have been
(mostly) added. I also forgot to change the total number of missions in E2--
fixed that, as well. Don't expect another update for a while. Mission 65 and
67 are a PAIN.

0.62 (11-8-12) -- Man, I'm on a roll. Missions 51-60 have been added to
Episode 1, I've changed some of the badge information, and a new question has
been added to the FAQ. I also fixed a couple of little typos.

0.52 (11-3-12) -- Finally getting into the Audi swing again! All missions up to
50 in E1 are up, and we've still got those two missions in E2 kind of hanging
around. I've also changed some of the strategies for the old missions a bit.

0.41.6 (3-9-12) -- Another minor update to change the song in Mission 16 of
Episode 1. Nothing new yet, sorry.

0.41.5 (12-22-11) -- A very minor update to change the mode of Episode 1,
Mission 30 to C4 instead of CC4.

0.41 (12-12-11) -- I have completed Missions 24, 38, 39, and 40 of Episode 1. 
Whoo! Also, I must have mis-counted on my last update... Oh, well.

0.36 (11-23-11) -- Wow, it's been a LONG time, hasn't it? I've been very busy
over the past year and a half, what with wrapping up my senior year of high
school and then starting college... A lot has changed since March of 2010,
including the addition of Episode 2. Since you can start Episode 2 without
finishing Episode 1, it makes it a bit harder to adjust the version number
properly, so I'm just adding one point for every complete mission added in
the update.
The Walkthrough section has also been changed quite a bit to accommodate the
new episode. Several more missions have been added since the last update.
Also, a few NPC names have been changed. Not totally sure why.

0.30 (3-29-10) -- Okay, I lied last time. THIS is the last version rollback--
I realized how wonky things would get if I ever got to 100%. Anyway, I added
some new missions. Have fun!

1.21 (3-24-10) -- Life is tough... But that's beyond the point. I haven't
been able to play Audition or update this guide until now. Missions 20 and 21
are done. I've adjusted a couple of missions to reflect the new songs in them,
and I've also added an amazing tip by -StarGirl.
Also, this is the LAST version rollback I'll be doing. When RedBana adds more
missions, they will be in Episode 2, so I will start using 2.xx at that point.

1.23.5 (9-6-09) -- No new missions, but just a tiny update to mission 19 and
a slight change in badge color.

1.23 (8-16-09) -- This guide just went through a MAJOR reworking. During the
most recent update, RedBana changed the songs for a lot of the missions, so I
had to rewrite most of my strategies. Here's a full rundown:
*Due to the July 2009 update, songs for missions 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, 8, 10, 11, 12,
15, 16, 17, 18, and 19 have been changed.
*Strategies for missions 1, 4, 5, 10, 11, 12, 17, 18, and 19 have been adjusted
to fit the new songs.
*Mission 20 has been added but not completed, and Mission 2's status has
been changed to "incomplete."
*The format has been changed slightly to make mission objectives more clear.
*The Additional Tips section has been added.
*The FAQ has been updated to include relevant questions.
*The version number with now correspond with my current Story Mode progress.
Note that due to the size of this update, this guide may contain several
mistakes. Please contact me if you find one.

0.30 (5-1-09) -- It's been a while, huh? No, I'm not dead. I just fail at
8Keys. Anyway, with Audition's transfer to a new publisher, I've had to change
some of the copyright information. No new missions up yet. Sorry.

0.29 (1-3-09) -- Happy New Year! Missions 14, 15, and 16 have been stomped,
and the information for Mission 18 is up. I also fixed a very stupid typo in
the first mission... I spelled "Mission" incorrectly.

0.25 (12-31-08) -- What a way to end the year with a quarter of the walkthrough
done already! I beat Mission 2. Check out the guide.

0.24 (12-29-08) -- Is the year really almost over? Wow... Anyway, Mission 13
is complete, and the information for Mission 16 has been added. I also added a
little bit of information to Mission 2 that may be helpful.

0.22 (12-23-08) -- I'm on a roll here! Missions' 17 and 19 full guides are
added, as well as the information (finally) for Mission 2. I've also fixed a
typo from Boombloom to Bloombloom. Still a funny name, if you asked me.
Finally, I changed the answer (again) to one of my random FAQ questions to
tie in with story mode. Allusions fans should like it.

0.19 (12-22-08) -- Just a few more days until Christmas! Anyway, Mission 12
has been conquered, and the information for Mission 17 has been added. I also
added another little tidbit to Confrontation with Lean. Go check them out.
Also, I spell-checked this thing for the second time. Typos have been fixed.

0.17 (12-20-08) -- I finally beat Mission 9. Check out the (somewhat lame)
strategy. Also, I changed the answer to one of my random FAQ questions. Not
that it matters much.

0.16 (12-16-08) -- Added the rewards for missions 9, 11, 12, and 14. Didn't
realize you could look at them from the mission list... Heh. Also, I added
the date for version 0.15.

0.15 (12-14-08) -- The first released version of the walkthrough. Contains
information about chapters 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, and 14, as well
as the full strategy for all of the above except 9, 11, 12, and 14.

---------------
1. Introduction
---------------

Hello there! I am UltraVioletGirl... or Alicia Jewel... or Hanyu-chama...
Whatever you want to call me. This is my walkthrough for the Story Mode of
Audition Online in America. If you play another version... well, I don't.
Sorry.

I made this walkthrough due to the staggering amount of trouble I've had on
Story Mode and the same trouble that I've seen others have. I really hope it's
helpful!

----------------------
2. Before You Start...
----------------------

First of all, are you at least level 6? If not, you cannot yet play Story
Mode. Don't worry--just get that level up and you'll be playing in no time!
Now, if you ARE level 6, to get to Story Mode, go to any channel, make a new
room, and select Story Mode from the drop down menu. You don't need to
password-protect it or worry about the name, for the system will rename is
StoryRoom and disallow anybody but you from entering. (Which really kind of
stinks if you want an audience.) Afterwards, just pick a mission (so long as it
isn't locked) and go!

------------------------
3. Script and Story Flow
------------------------

I have NO idea why they decided to number the missions the way they did. Either
way, it can be a bit confusing unless you want to log on, check the story
flow chart, and then log back off. Or you can just go to this link:

http://s420.photobucket.com/albums/pp289/AuditionOnlineScript/

The main album contains a little introduction, and the rest of the script is
divided into Episode 1 and 2 sub-albums with each mission also having a sub-
album. Naturally, the script contains spoilers, so don't read it if you're not
that far yet and don't want any plot spoilers. (Yes, there's a plot to this
thing. It's not a very deep one, but it's still a plot.)

--------------
4. Walkthrough
--------------

Yes, this is the walkthrough. Since Episode 2 was added, I've divided this
section accordingly. All Episode 1 missions will now begin with 4.1., and all
Episode 2 missions will begin with 4.2. If you want to find the mission Bravo
Diego, for example, you would search 4.1.14.

--------------
4.1. Episode 1
--------------

Episode 1 has a total of 100 missions. Please note that you CAN move on to
Episode 2 without finishing this one, but the story probably won't make much
sense. (Assuming you even follow the story, that is...)

--------------------
4.1.1. The Beginning
--------------------

Mission Name: The Beginning
Mission Objective: Get three perfects in a row (Perfect x2 combo). Place does
not matter.
Mission Mode: Choreography - 4Keys
Song: Audition - Digital Soul (102 BPM)
Opponent(s): Bobby
Rewards: 1600 Beats or 800 Exp
Strategy: The first mission of story mode is incredibly easy. This is one of
the slowest songs in the game, and all you have to do is get three perfects
in a row. The best thing to do is just follow the beat.

--------------------
4.1.2. Bobby's House
--------------------

Mission Name: Bobby's House
Mission Objective: Get first place.
Mission Mode: Choreography - 4Keys
Song: Audition - Can Can (150 BPM)
Opponent(s): Bobby
Rewards: 4000 Beats or 2000 Exp
Strategy: They made Confrontation with Lean easier, so I guess they just had
to make this harder. Just have really good reflexes, try to chain, and hope
that Bobby doesn't decide to go pro. I don't advise trying to Chance this one
unless you've REALLY been practicing. Insane Mode is a godsend in this
mission.

-------------------------------
4.1.3. Welcome to Audition Town
-------------------------------

Mission Name: Welcome to Audition Town
Mission Objective: Get 10 Perfects. Place does not matter.
Mission Mode: Choreography - 4Keys
Song: Audition - Euro 2005 (138 BPM)
Opponent(s): Chloe
Rewards: 1200 Beats or 600 Exp
Strategy: Another pretty easy mission if you can keep up. Luckily, this song
has "exploding" drums, so it's a lot easier to keep the beat. If you can't
pass this mission, practice on faster songs until you can get the hang of it.

------------------------------
4.1.4. Confrontation with Lean
------------------------------

Mission Name: Confrontation with Lean/The First Encounter with Lean
Mission Objective: Get second place.
Mission Mode: Choreography - 4Keys
Song: Audition - Canon Groove (105 BPM)
Opponent(s): Diane Dance, Alice, Kei Note, Pablo, and Sara Steppenice
Rewards: 3200 Beats or 1600 Exp
Strategy: Good news: the song is easier now, AND RedBana fixed Canon Groove so
it's on-beat! Whoo-hoo! Now, the only challenge is to get EXACTLY second place.
Here we go!

First, keep an eye on the NPCs' scores. The NPCs are extremely unpredictable;
just when you think they're never going to get a Perfect, they come at you with
a x10 combo. Make sure that you keep well behind the first place player while
not letting the third place one overtake you. This can be VERY tricky if the
first and third place NPCs have similar scores. Part of getting second place
in this mission is luck.

Second, DO NOT CHANCE. I'm not just saying this because I'm bad at it. I'm
saying it because it will get you too far ahead and make it harder for the
other NPCs to catch up with you. Just trust me and play a normal game.

Finally, DO NOT FORCE MISS. Even if you are very far ahead, force missing can
cause multiple NPCs to overtake you since you technically miss two moves when
you force miss. Instead, try to get several Cools and Bads; for this, you'll
want to watch the bar.

Again, just keep trying with these strategies and, hopefully, luck. You'll get
it.

---------------------------
4.1.5. You're Under Arrest!
---------------------------

Mission Name: You're Under Arrest!
Mission Objective: Get no Bads or Misses. Place does not matter.
Mission Mode: Choreography - 4Keys
Song: Audition - Funky Town (130 BPM)
Opponent(s): Felicia Force
Rewards: 2000 Beats or 1000 Exp
Strategy: And now for a true test of your skill! The most important thing in
this mission is to focus on completing the song. The best way to do this is not
to rush through it. Doing this could easily result in finger slips or miskeys,
so it's best to take it slow and steady. Chancing and Insane-ing would be a
very bad idea for this mission, especially since you don't even have to win.

------------------------------
4.1.6. Searching for the Pro~~
------------------------------

Mission Name: Searching for the Pro~~
Mission Objective: Get four Perfects in a row (Perfect x3 combo). Place does
not matter.
Mission Mode: Choreography - Expert
Song: Audition - Digital Soul (102 BPM)
Opponent(s): Jack Jumpoff
Rewards: 2400 Beats or 1200 Exp
Strategy: We're venturing into a new mode. Choreography - Expert uses both 4Key
and 8Key moves, so if you don't know how to 8Key, now's a good time to learn.
Luckily, this is a very slow song, and the objective is easy enough if you have
a good sense of rhythm. Just do what you did in mission one with eight keys,
and you should do fine.

And, yes, feel free to laugh at Jack's name.

-----------------------------------
4.1.7. The Other Side of the Legend
-----------------------------------

Mission Name: The Other Side of the Legend
Mission Objective: Get first place.
Mission Mode: Choreography - 4Keys
Song: Audition - Dream Machine (125 BPM)
Opponent(s): Felicia Force
Rewards: 2400 Beats or 1200 Exp
Strategy: This is actually a really easy mission. Felicia is one of the few
NPCs that doesn't chain like crazy, and this song isn't that fast. Just focus
on getting all or almost all of the moves with as many Perfects as you can
muster and you should win. Feel free to Chance, but it shouldn't be necessary.

-----------------------------
4.1.8. Teacher(?) and Student
-----------------------------

Mission Name: Teacher(?) and Student
Mission Objective: Get three Perfects in a row (Perfect x2 combo). Place does
not matter.
Song: Audition - Chinese Lady (118 BPM)
Opponent(s): Travis Trounce
Rewards: 1920 Beats or 960 Exp
Strategy: Laugh at Travis's name. After that, get ready for an all-out 8Key
game. Luckily, you don't have to win. As usual, focus on the beat and just get
three Perfects in a row. If you haven't practiced 8Key very much, now would be
a good time to do so.

----------------
4.1.9. Sunny Day
----------------

Mission Name: Sunny Day
Mission Objective: Get at least 300,000 points. Place does not matter.
Mission Mode: Choreography - Expert
Song: Audition - Funky Town (130 BPM)
Opponent(s): Felicia Force
Rewards: 2400 Beats or 1200 Exp
Strategy: This is honestly one of those missions where you just have to get
lucky unless you're really good at 8Keys. The song is less than three
minutes long, which barely gives you enough time to complete the mission.
The best thing I can say is to try to chain as much as you can unless you're
REALLY confident in your Chancing skills. You could also try using Insane if
you're good at getting Perfects in this song. Of course, if you're good at
8Keys, this shouldn't present much of a challenge.

------------------
4.1.10. Fast Hands
------------------

Mission Name: Fast Hands
Mission Objective: Get four perfects in a row (Perfect x3 combo). Place does
not matter.
Mission Mode: Choreography - 8Keys
Song: Audition - U Know (90)
Opponent(s): Travis Trounce
Rewards: 2000 Beats or 1000 Exp
Strategy: This is the slowest song that you've done in Story Mode so far, and
it will be the slowest one for a long time, if not forever. Hopefully, this
should make getting four Perfects in a row easy. If not, all that I can suggest
is work on keeping the beat.

---------------------
4.1.11. Chloe's Visit
---------------------

Mission Name: Chloe's Visit/Bobby's Visit
Mission Objective: Get no Misses. Place does not matter.
Mission Mode: Choreography - 8Keys
Song: Audition - Digital Soul (102 BPM)
Opponent(s): Bobby
Rewards: 2400 Beats or 1200 Exp
Strategy: Yay! RedBana made this mission easy! If you've been practicing 8Keys,
this shouldn't be too much of a problem for you, especially given the slowness
of the song. If you can't pass it, try this hint: place your fingers on the 4,
8, and 9 keys. It may seem awkward at first, but it actually helps your fingers
adjust to using all eight keys. (Thanks a ton to Vince for that awesome
strategy!)

Oh, also, I have no idea why this is listed as Chloe's Visit.

------------------------
4.1.12. Beat Lean Jean 1
------------------------

Mission Name: Beat Lean Jean 1
Mission Objective: Get first place.
Mission Mode: Choreography - 4Keys
Song: Audition - Beat City (120 BPM)
Opponent(s): Sara Steppenice, Reno Williams, Yunno Cimi, Bunny Lovesmith, and
Sally Strut
Rewards: 1600 Beats or 800 Exp
Strategy: Finally, we're getting revenge! This song isn't very fast, and the
NPCs are all pretty easy, so you shouldn't have too much trouble with this
mission. You are free to Chance, chain like crazy, and do whatever it takes
to win. You don't have to hold back this time.

------------------------
4.1.13. Beat Lean Jean 2
------------------------

Mission Name: Beat Lean Jean 2
Mission Objective: Get five perfects in a row (Perfect x4 combo). Place does
not matter.
Mission Mode: Choreography - 8Keys
Song: Audition - Elec Bossa (123 BPM)
Opponent(s): Lean Jean, Ferris Fuego, Schoolgirl Sue, May Bloombloom, and
Casanova
Rewards: 2400 Beats or 1200 Exp
Strategy: If you're good at 8Keys and chaining, this mission should be easy...
emphasis on "should." This song is hard to chain, and it's even harder when
you're not very good at 8Key, and the fact that there are five NPCs makes lag
an issue, too. Luckily, you have three Chances in this song to hit the lower
levels. (I managed to get a x5 chain at the very end.) Just be thankful that
you don't have to win this one.

(I just love some of these NPCs' names. May Bloombloom... Hehe...)

-------------------
4.1.14. Bravo Diego
-------------------

Mission Name: Bravo Diego
Mission Objective: Get first place against the second-hardest NPC in the game.
Mission Mode: Choreography - 4Keys
Song: Audition - Canon Groove (105 BPM)
Opponent(s): Diego
Rewards: 6000 Beats or 3000 Exp
Strategy: Welcome to Hell.

For this mission, you MUST Chance! There's no way around it--Diego will ALWAYS
get at least 400,000 points, and he can even pass 1,000,000. Also, he chains.
A LOT. Like, at least x10 in each round. Insane mode might be able to take
off some of that edge if you can manage it.

If he gets to 500,000 points before the Finish Move, Alt + F4 it out of there.
If he's actually getting a reasonable score, Chance until you've passed him by
at least 50,000 points or so, otherwise he could easily catch up. If he starts
chaining again, Chance. Be careful on the Level 9 moves, though. If you miss
the Finish Move on this song, you're probably going to lose.

If this mission sounds impossible, it's not. There are very rare cases where
Diego will only score about 400,000 points and get a chain of less than x5.
(In my case, he got a x4 and 408,330 points.) If you can get lucky and get
one of these, you should win easily. If not... then just keep trying and
practicing this song.

-----------------
4.1.15. Celebrity
-----------------

Mission Name: Celebrity
Mission Objective: Get five Perfects in a row (Perfect x4 combo). Place does
not matter.
Mission Mode: Team Choreography - 4Keys
Song: Audition - Beat City (120 BPM)
Opponent(s): Rawb, Baron, and Trisha
Teammate(s): Diego and Delphine
Rewards: 3200 Beats or 1600 Exp
Strategy: Ugh! They changed the song AGAIN!

*sigh* Okay... My rage aside, this shouldn't be too hard. 120 isn't that fast,
and you can easily get a x4 combo with enough skill/luck. Nothing major here,
especially since you don't even have to win.

-----------------------
4.1.16. With a Teammate
-----------------------

Mission Name: With a Teammate
Mission Objective: Get a team first place.
Mission Mode: Team Choreography - 4Keys
Song: Audition - Can Can (150 BPM)
Opponent(s): Kane, Monica, and Marg
Teammate(s): Bobby and Chloe
Rewards: 2000 Beats or 1000 Exp
Strategy: At 150 BPM, this is the fastest song that you've done in Story Mode 
so far (unless you've done mission 2 already). Luckily, you've got two NPCs on
your side who can chain at any point in the round, but don't depend on them too
much. You still need to get as many Perfects and chains as you can. I don't
suggest that you Chance past Level 1 unless you're, like, a master.

Part of this mission is luck. Sometimes, all three of your opponents will chain
in large numbers while Bobby and Chloe get Cools and Greats, but sometimes it
will be the other way around. Just keep trying. If you've made it this far,
you should be able to beat this. If not, practice faster songs and work on your
reflexes.

(On a random note, I find it funny that these are the same NPCs from Mission
19 with another one that rhymes with "Wayne.")

-------------------
4.1.17. The Prophet
-------------------

Mission Name: The Prophet
Mission Objective: Get first place.
Mission Mode: Choreography - 4Keys
Song: Audition - Canon Groove (105 BPM)
Opponent(s): Pluto
Rewards: 2000 Beats or 1000 Exp
Strategy: This guy is like a toned-down version of Diego. He'll chain in the
double-digits sometimes with other smaller chains scattered about in the round.
However, he can be defeated with Chancing and chains of your own. The song is
VERY slow, so Chancing shouldn't be too hard as long as you've practiced it
before. Although he'll get reasonable scores more than often, he can still get
up to 500,000 in one round.

Be careful about Chancing the Level 9 moves if you're not confident in your
Chancing skills yet. The LAST thing you want to do in this mission is miss the
Finish Move.

Also, I don't understand why they changed Wayne's name to Pluto while he still
refers to himself as Wayne in the dialog and mission objectives.

---------------------
4.1.18. For the Dream
---------------------

Mission Name: For the Dream
Mission Objective: Get no Bads or Misses. Place does not matter.
Mission Mode: Choreography - Expert
Song: Audition - Digital Soul (102 BPM)
Opponent(s): Bobby, Chloe, Jack Jumpoff, and Travis Trounce
Rewards: 2000 Beats or 1000 Exp
Strategy: Whoo-hoo! This mission is finally easy! This is almost an exact
copy of Mission 11 with Choreography - Expert mode, instead. Just like Mission
11, if you're good at 8Keys, you should be fine for this mission. If not, see
said mission for a tip.

-------------------------
4.1.19. A Flicker of Hope
-------------------------

Mission Name: A Flicker of Hope
Mission Objective: Get five perfects in a row (Perfect x4). Place does not
matter.
Mission Mode: Choreography - 8Keys
Song: Audition - Destiny (132 BPM)
Opponent(s): Pluto, Monica, and Marg
Rewards: 3600 Beats or 1800 Exp
Strategy: Ugh. They made this mission harder. I have some confirmed cases of
people finishing this mission but still failing it. I'm not sure if it's a
glitch or what, but it seems to be an issue.

Anyway, putting that aside, this is a fairly difficult mission if you can't
8Key on faster songs. All that I can say is to just follow the beat and try
to chain on the level sixes.

---------------------
4.1.20. Another Start
---------------------

Mission Name: Another Start
Mission Objective: Get third place or better.
Mission Mode: Crazy Choreography - 4Keys
Song: Audition - Blackout House (130 BPM)
Opponent(s): Gloria, Ally McHeels, Proud Paul, High Class Lass, and Karen
Kutoff.
Rewards: 4000 Beats or 2000 Exp
Strategy: Welcome to Crazy Choreography. Those with weak constitutions should
leave the building immediately.

In all seriousness, this is the first CC4 match in Story Mode. I suggest that
you take advantage of two huge point-builders: Random Chance and Insane Mode.
Random Change has a fairly large point multiplier, and it can pull you up to
the top if you just use it in levels 6 and 7. (For advanced players, feel free
to use this on the higher levels, too.) Insane Mode is great for those who are
good at getting Perfects, but if you keep Missing because of it, feel free to
turn it off.

If you're good at CC4, then you may not need the above tips, but if you're
still new at it, give them a shot. They're well worth it if you practice
enough.

If you complete missions 1-20, you get a grey E1 badge above your name.

------------------------------
4.1.21. The Start of Adventure
------------------------------

Mission Name: The Start of Adventure
Mission Objective: Get third place or better with at least 10 Perfects.
Mission Mode: Choreography - 4Keys
Song: Audition - Canon Groove (105 BPM)
Opponent(s): Bobby, Chloe, Travis Trounce, Diego, and Pluto
Rewards: 2000 Beats or 1000 Exp
Strategy: This should be a pretty easy mission. The song is slow, the mode is
easy, and the objective is simple enough. You're free to use Chancing and
Insane Mode if you feel like you need to, but you shouldn't have much trouble
with this mission.

--------------------------------
4.1.22. Bobby's Special Training
--------------------------------

Mission Name: Bobby's Special Training (er, Chloe's...)
Mission Objective: Get 15 Perfects and no Bads. Place does not matter.
Masson Mode: Choreography - 4Keys
Song: Audition - You (136 BPM)
Opponent(s): Chloe
Rewards: 2800 Beats or 1400 Exp
Strategy: I love you, Chloe... Er, what? Oh! The guide, right. Well, all I can
say is to not Chance or go to Insane Mode since you don't have to win, and
just do your best! The song is 4 minutes, so that gives you plenty of time to
get all the Perfects you need. And no, I'm not sure why the game mixed up
Bobby and Chloe AGAIN.

CONFUSION: The in-game description says you can't Miss, but I got 3 Misses
and still passed. Not that I'm complaining, though.

-------------------
4.1.23. A New World
-------------------

Mission Name: A New World
Mission Objective: Get 1st place, 15 Perfects, and no Bads. Place does not
matter.
Mission Mode: Choreography - 4Keys
Song: Audition - Funky Town (130 BPM)
Opponent(s): Jeremy, Billy Backstep, Fernan, Roby, and Daria
Rewards: 3600 Beats or 1800 Exp
Strategy: We're back with 4Keys again, which should make this mission slightly
easier. Unfortunately, 15 Perfects is a lot to get in one game, and holding
1st place against some pretty tough NPCs is no easy chore either. But I
believe in you! Er... That is, just use Random Chance and Insane Mode like in
the previous missions, and you should be able to pass this.

-------------------
4.1.24. Big Match 1
-------------------

Mission Name: Big Match 1
Mission Objective: Get 1st place.
Mission Mode: Choreography - 8Keys
Song: Audition - You (136 BPM)
Opponent(s): Francis Fairy, Perna, Daphne, Judy, and Abel.
Rewards: 5200 Beats or 2600 Exp
Strategy: This is a rather difficult mission. These NPCs are pretty decent,
and you have to do 8Keys on 136 BPM. The only reason I managed to beat it was
because I got 20 Insane Perfects in one game, netting me over a million points,
but if you can do 8Keys on a fast song like this (especially with Random Chance
on), you should still be able to beat it.

-----------------------------
4.1.25. The Experience Begins
-----------------------------

Mission Name: The Experience Begins
Mission Objective: Finish with at least 450,000 points and no Bads. Place does
not matter.
Mission Mode: Choreography - 8Keys
Song: Audition - Party Party (130 BPM)
Opponent(s): Benny, Janet Timberlag, Diane, Samus Shine, and Janelle
Rewards: 2800 Beats or 1400 Exp
Strategy: This actually isn't very hard if you use Insane Mode or Chancing to
get some extra points. If you're good at 8Keys, this should be a snap.

------------------------
4.1.26. Diego's Training
------------------------

Mission Name: Diego's Training
Mission Objective: Get no Bads or Misses. Place does not matter.
Mission Mode: Choreography - Expert
Song: Audition - Canon 2007 (105 BPM)
Opponent(s): Diego
Rewards: 4400 Beats or 2200 Exp
Strategy: This is a lot like Missions 11 and 18: an 8Key mode with a slow song
where you don't have to get 1st place. (And thank goodness for that since Diego
kicks so much butt.) If you're having trouble, just keep practicing.

-------------------------------------
4.1.27. First Meeting with Crazy Crew
-------------------------------------

Mission Name: First Meeting with Crazy Crew
Mission Objective: Get at least 400,000 points and no Bads. Place does not
matter.
Mission Mode: Crazy Choreography - 4Keys
Song: Audition - Dance Dance (132 BPM)
Opponent(s): Steve Slacker, Athena, Cara Cop, Daisy Showers, and Jessica
Jitter
Rewards: 4000 Beats or 2000 Exp
Strategy: This isn't a very hard mission if you know what you're doing. As
usual, use Random Chance and Insane Mode to get some extra points. It shouldn't
take but a few tries to get this down.

-------------
4.1.28. Run!!
-------------

Mission Name: Run!!
Mission Objective: Get a team 1st place.
Mission Mode: Team Crazy Choreography - 4Keys
Song: Audition - Hands Up!!! (135 BPM)
Opponent(s): Kei Note and Isis Fox
Teammate(s): Travis Trounce
Rewards: 4000 Beats or 2000 Exp
Strategy: Again, a pretty easy mission if you use Random Chance and Insane
Mode. The only thing is that Travis isn't always a reliable partner, so part
of this mission is luck.

Also, WHY DID TRAVIS THROW A KITTEN?!

-------------------
4.1.29. Big Match 2
-------------------

Mission Name: Big Match 2
Mission Objective: Get 10 Perfects, no Cools, and no Bads. Place does not
matter.
Mission Mode: Crazy Choreography - 4Keys
Song: Audition - Audition - Roller Coast (125 BPM)
Opponent(s): Ursula, Owen Poplock, Oliver, Kevin, Phil
Rewards: 4800 Beats or 2400 Exp
Strategy: There is one reason that I hate this mission: lag. Getting no Bads
is one thing, but being just a bit behind and then hitting a lag spike can net
you one Cool too many. Of course, if you have good internet and/or a good
graphics card, you shouldn't run into that problem. And, as mentioned in other
missions and the general tips, you can try moving to a low-populated server if
all else fails.

Either way, how easy this mission is will partially depend on how good you are
at CC4 on a song with moderate BPM. Unfortunately, I am not so good at it. One
strategy you can try is waiting to get all 10 Perfects and then just stepping
away from the keyboard--this mission doesn't penalize you for getting Misses.

-----------------------
4.1.30. A New Companion
-----------------------

Mission Name: A New Companion
Mission Objective: Get 1st place, four Perfects in a row (Perfect x3 combo),
and a total of 15 Perfects.
Mission Mode: Choreography - 4Keys
Song: Audition - In the Groove (130 BPM)
Opponent(s): Perna
Rewards: 4000 Beats or 2000 Exp
Strategy: This is a bit tougher than usual. Perna is a pretty decent NPC, and
the Perfect requirements are no walk in the park, either. I suggest that you
DON'T use Chance until you get your x3 combo. Otherwise, just use whatever
tricks you have up your sleeve to win.

Also, I can never seem to get Insane Mode to activate in this mission... Huh.

Update: Apparently this mission is C4 instead of CC4. I'm not sure when this
happened...

-----------------
4.1.31. Hall Cup!
-----------------

Mission Name: Hall Cup!
Mission Objective: Get 1st place.
Mission Mode: Choreography - Expert
Song: Audition - Canon Groove (105 BPM)
Opponent(s): Laurel, Sirus Samba, Christina Cross, Gilbert, and James
Junebug
Rewards: 5200 Beats or 2600 Exp
Strategy: This isn't too terribly difficult, but some of these NPCs like to
chain a lot, so be warned of that. If you can Chance 8Keys, feel free to do
that, but a few well-placed Insane Perfects can easily put you up top.

--------------------------------
4.1.32. Bobby's Special Training
--------------------------------

Mission Name: Bobby's Special Training (for real this time!)
Mission Objective: Get at least 450,000 points and 10 Perfects. Place does not
matter.
Mission Mode: Crazy Choreography - 4Keys
Song: Audition - Driving At Night (140 BPM)
Opponent(s): Bobby, Abel, Fernan, Janet Timberlag, Daria
Rewards: 4800 Beats or 2400 Exp
Strategy: Once Bobby gets his foot out of his mouth, we can begin...

Anyway, the good news is that there are no "get no blank" objectives here,
which is a lifesaver since this song is pretty fast. The bad news is that you
still have to rack up 450,000 points and 10 Perfects. My advice, as usual, is
to follow the beat and use whatever tricks you have to get Perfects. It's not
the easiest mission in the world, but it's doable.

-------------------
4.1.33. Big Match 3
-------------------

Mission Name: Big Match 3
Mission Objective: Get 1st place.
Mission Mode: Crazy Choreography - 8Keys
Song: Audition - Digital Soul (102 BPM)
Opponent(s): Bonita Sonata, Vivian Rockwell, Adolph, Prince Vibe, Freddy
Frump
Rewards: 6000 Beats or 3000 Exp
Strategy: If you're bad at CC8 like me, Insane Mode will be your saving grace.
This song is REALLY slow and has a rather easy beat, so getting Perfects
shouldn't be too difficult, allowing you to rack up the Insane points. I
managed about 700K using it and a bit of Chancing at low levels. Of course,
if you're good at CC8, then you might not need these tricks.

Also, is it just me, or does Prince Vibe look like Michael Jackson?

-------------------------------
4.1.34. Crazy Crew's Misdeeds 1
-------------------------------

Mission Name: Crazy Crew's Misdeeds 1
Mission Objective: Get a team 1st place.
Mission Mode: Team Choreography - 8Keys
Song: Audition - Canon Groove (105 BPM)
Opponent(s): Sweetfeet, Cody Cash, and Greg Goggle
Teammate(s): Travis Trounce and Perna
Rewards: 4400 Beats or 2200 Exp
Strategy: This can be a bit tough if you're not good at 8Keys. As usual, just
use Insane Mode, Chance (if you can handle it), and luck. Perna can usually
get a lot of points, but Travis is less reliable.

-------------------------------
4.1.35. Jack's Special Training
-------------------------------

Mission Name: Jack's Special Training
Mission Objective: Get 25 Perfects and no Bads. Place does not matter.
Mission Mode: Crazy Choreography - 4Keys
Song: Audition - Beat City (120 BPM)
Opponent(s): Jack Jumpoff
Rewards: 6400 Beats or 3200 Exp
Strategy: Well, looks like Perna has managed to make two men shove their feet
into their mouths...

This wouldn't be so difficult if not for the sheer amount of Perfects
you have to get. This mission will require you to get a Perfect on quite a few
moves... in CC4. Luckily, the song is rather moderate, so if you can keep up
and time your moves correctly, you should be fine.

If you're having trouble getting Perfects due to lag, try changing to a low-
populated channel. It's what saved my butt.

-------------------------------
4.1.36. Crazy Crew's Misdeeds 2
-------------------------------

Mission Name: Crazy Crew's Misdeeds 2
Mission Objective: Get a team 1st place.
Mission Mode: Team Choreography - 4Keys
Song: Audition - Canon Groove (105 BPM)
Opponent(s): Prince Vibe, Darius, and Adolph
Teammate(s): Perna and Travis Trounce
Rewards: 5200 Beats or 2600 Exp
Strategy: This is a lot easier than the last mission. As usual, just use Random
Chance, Insane Mode, and anything else you've got up your sleeve. The only
problem that could arise would be Travis dragging your team down.

--------------------------
4.1.37. What's Missing...?
--------------------------

Mission Name: What's Missing...?/What's Lacking...?
Mission Objective: Get 20 Perfects and 20 Greats. Place does not matter.
Mission Mode: Choreography - 4Keys
Song: Audition - Driving at Night (140 BPM)
Opponent(s): Perna
Rewards: 5200 Beats or 2600 Exp
Strategy: Good news: we're back to C4! Bad news: it's a fast song.

The most difficult part of this mission will probably be getting the 20
Perfects you need. Luckily, this song is quite long and gives you plenty of
Chances to get them, and since it's only C4, you'll get back to Level 6 quickly
if you're having trouble on the upper-level moves. Like before, move to a low-
populated channel if you think you're lagging.

-----------------
4.1.38. The Feast
-----------------

Mission Name: The Feast
Mission Objective: Get at least 4th place with three Perfects in a row (Perfect
x2 combo).
Mission Mode: Crazy Choreography - 8Keys
Song: Audition - Canon Groove (105 BPM)
Opponent(s): Bobby, Chloe, Travis Trounce, Diego, and Perna
Rewards: 6400 Beats or 3200 Exp
Strategy: If you haven't completed Mission 33, then welcome to CC8!

Despite the fact that this song is really slow, this mission is not easy,
especially if you're still new to CC8 and/or are bad at 8Keys in general. Diego
is the most obvious threat to your victory, but all of these NPCs (with the
exception of maybe Travis) are pretty good. Use whatever tricks you have up
your sleeve to rack up some points, whether it be Chancing, Insane Mode, or
just some awesome chains.

A warning, though: the NPCs cheat. They get one last Level 10 move after you
start doing the win/lose pose, which can knock you out of 4th place if you
don't have enough points.

-----------------------------------
4.1.39. Final Practice for Hall Cup
-----------------------------------

Mission Name: Final Practice for Hall Cup/Last Practice for Hall Cup
Mission Objective: Get 600,000 points and no Bads. Place does not matter.
Mission Mode: Crazy Choreography - 4Keys
Song: Audition - Beat City (120 BPM)
Opponent(s): Travis Trounce, Abel, and Daria
Rewards: 6000 Beats or 3000 Exp
Strategy: This is a lot like Mission 27 but with a slower song and a larger
point requirement. It's really not that difficult--by now, you should know what
works best for you as far as getting points goes, so just use that. If you feel
like you're just barely going to make a move, force Miss. It's better than
getting a mission-killing Bad. You can also try the trick of walking away when
you get 600,000 points so you don't mess up.

------------------------
4.1.40. For the Hall Cup
------------------------

Mission Name: For the Hall Cup
Mission Objective: Get a team first place.
Mission Mode: Team Crazy Choreography - 8Keys
Song: Audition - Canon Groove (105 BPM)
Opponent(s): Jake Highstep, Rachel Raver, and Harriet Frolic
Teammate(s): Travis Trounce and Perna
Rewards: 7200 Beats or 3600 Exp
Strategy: This is a lot like Mission 38. (These missions are getting a bit
redundant, aren't they?) Same song and almost the same mode, the main
difference being that now you're in a team. Perna is the more reliable of your
two teammates, but Travis is probably going to drag you down. Your opponents
are rather skilled, as well, so you might be in for a challenge. Whatever you
did to beat Mission 38 should suffice here.

Also, the NPCs cheat again, but since it's Team mode, it shouldn't interfere
too much... hopefully.

If you complete missions 21-40, your E1 badge will turn blue.

-----------------------
4.1.41. Forgotten World
-----------------------

Mission Name: Forgotten World
Mission Objective: Get first place with 5 or more players in the room. This
task must be completed 5 times.
Mission Mode: Choreography - 4Keys
Song: Your choice
Opponent(s): Other players
Rewards: 3200 Beats or 1600 Exp
Strategy: Unless you've jumped ahead to Episode 2, this could be your first
mission in which you must go against other human players. Basically, you make a
room, set the mode to Choreography - 4Keys, and get at least 4 other people in
the room with you. The song can be set to anything you want, and all you have
to do is complete the objective 5 times (though not necessarily in a row). If
you want/need to, you can ask the others in the room to let you win.

----------------------------------
4.1.42. A Big Fish in a Small Pond
----------------------------------

Mission Name: A Big Fish in a Small Pond
Mission Objective: Get third place or better with 5 or more players in the
room. This task must be completed 5 times.
Mission Mode: Freestyle Battle
Song: Your choice
Opponent(s): Other players
Rewards: 2400 Beats or 1200 Exp
Strategy: About the same as last time, but now you're doing Freestyle mode
instead. This one might be more difficult to complete because Freestyle isn't
the most popular mode.

Also, is it me, or was this script REALLY buggy?

-----------------------
4.1.43. Easy Breezy Day
-----------------------

Mission Name: Easy Breezy Day
Mission Objective: Get at least 500,000 points. Place does not matter. This
task must be completed 7 times.
Mission Mode: Choreography - 4Keys
Song: Your choice
Opponent(s) Other players (or none)
Rewards: 4400 Beats or 2200 Exp
Strategy: Third verse, same as the first. The only difference is that you
apparently don't even have to play with anyone. So pick a song, lock yourself
in a room, and get those points! For actually getting points, I'd suggest
picking a long song with a moderate BPM and using Chance, Insane, and whatever
else you use to maximize your points. (For a list of long songs, see Slinder's
Audition's Longest Songs list linked in 5. Additional Tips.)

----------------------
4.1.44. Dance Carnival
----------------------

Mission Name: Dance Carnival
Mission Objective: Get 20 Perfects. Place does not matter. This task must be
completed 5 times.
Mission Mode: Dynamic - 8Keys
Song: Your choice
Opponent(s): Other players (or none)
Rewards: 6400 Beats or 3200 Exp
Strategy: You should know the drill by now. Pick a song with a solid beat and
rack up those Perfects!

-------------------------
4.1.45. Crazy Crew's Plot
-------------------------

Mission Name: Crazy Crew's Plot
Mission Objective: Get five Perfects in a row (Perfect x4). Place does not
matter. This task must be completed 5 times.
Mission Mode: Choreography - C - 8Keys
Song: Your choice
Opponent(s): Other players (or none)
Rewards: 5600 Beats or 2800 Exp
Strategy: Similar to Mission 44, but now it's CC8. Good luck!

-------------------
4.1.46. Our Victory
-------------------

Mission Name: Our Victory
Mission Objective: Get a team first place. This task must be completed 5 times.
Mission Mode: Night Dance - 4Keys
Song: Your choice
Opponent(s)/Teammate(s): Other players
Rewards: 4000 Beats or 2000 Exp
Strategy: Though there's no set minimum number of people that have to be in the
room, you need at least four for Night Dance. Also, to actually get to Night
Dance, make a normal room and switch it to Team Mode (in the lower-left
corner). Just do what you normally do to get a high score and hope your team's
good enough to win!

--------------------
4.1.47. Never Forget
--------------------

Mission Name: Never Forget
Mission Objective: Get a team first place. This task must be completed 3 times.
Mission Mode: B-Boy Battle - 4Keys
Song: Your choice
Opponent(s)/Teammate(s): Other players
Rewards: 3600 Beats or 1800 Exp
Strategy: This is similar to Mission 46 but with a different mode. Getting to
B-Boy mode is similar to getting to Night Dance mode--from there, just do what
you can to win.

------------------------------
4.1.48. A Victory For Everyone
------------------------------

Mission Name: A Victory For Everyone
Mission Objective: Get seven Perfects in a row (Perfect x6). Place does not
matter. This task only needs to be completed once.
Mission Mode: Team Choreography - Free
Song: Your choice
Opponent(s)/Teammate(s): Other players
Rewards: 6400 Beats or 3200 Exp
Strategy: Another team game (*groan*). Luckily, you don't have to win this
time. Just... do what you can to get those Perfects. Fortunately, you only have
to do it once.

----------------------------------
4.1.49. Do You Believe In Destiny?
----------------------------------

Mission Name: Do You Believe In Destiny?
Mission Objective: Get a team first place with at least 5 hearts (Synchro
Perfects). This task must be completed 5 times.
Mission Mode: Couple Dance - 4Keys
Song: Your choice
Opponent(s)/Teammate: Other players
Rewards: 5600 Beats or 2800 Exp
Strategy: And now things get awkward (unless you already have a couple, that
is)! This shouldn't be too hard of a mission--just find a song that has a solid
beat and hope your partner knows how to Perf.

(I'm not sure if you actually have to get first place or not. Can someone
confirm that for me?)

--------------------------
4.1.50. Show Me Your Moves
--------------------------

Mission Name: Show Me Your Moves
Mission Objective: Get a team first place and at least 500,000 points. This
task must be completed 5 times.
Mission Mode: Team Dynamic - 4Keys
Song: Your choice
Opponent(s)/Teammate(s): Other players
Rewards: 3600 Beats or 1800 Exp
Strategy: Another mission where you have to get a lot of points. You guys know
what to do by now: Chance, Insane, chain, and whatever else you do to get a lot
of points. As usual, if you really need to win, you can ask the other team to
take it easy on you.

When you beat this mission, you're halfway through Episode 1! Whoo! (No shiny
badge for it, though. :c)

-----------------------------
4.1.51. Never Ending Training
-----------------------------

Mission Name: Never Ending Training/Neverending Training
Mission Objective: Get at least third place and five Perfects in a row (Perfect
x4) with at least 5 people in the room. This task must be completed 5 times.
Mission Mode: Choreography - 8Keys
Song: Your choice
Opponent(s): Other players
Rewards: 5200 Beats or 2600 Exp
Strategy: We're back to 8Keys again. Luckily, you only need third place--your
biggest problem is probably going to be getting the chain you need. Just pick
a song with a good beat, and you should be okay.

------------------------
4.1.52. A New Experience
------------------------

Mission Name: A New Experience
Mission Objective: Get at least 600,000 points and no Bads. Place does not
matter. This task must be completed 7 times.
Mission Mode: Dynamic - 4Keys
Song: Your choice
Opponent(s): Other players (or none)
Rewards: 6400 Beats or 3200 Exp
Strategy: And the point requirement goes up and up... I found that long songs
like Party Party really helped with this mission. Plus, as usual, you can use
Chance, Insane, and chaining to get a high score. Just be careful that you
don't accidentally get a Bad. If you feel like you're barely going to get a
move, force Miss. You can also step away from the game when you reach 600,000
to avoid an accidental Bad.

Bug(?) Alert: Admittedly, I didn't count very well, but I think I only did this
five times before it let me move on.

-------------------------------
4.1.53. The Days Spent With You
-------------------------------

Mission Name: The Days Spent With You
Mission Objective: Get at least 10 hearts (Synchro Perfects) and at least one
Finish Move. Place does not matter. This task only needs to be completed once.
Mission Mode: Couple Dance - 8keys
Song: Your choice
Opponent(s)/Teammate: Other players
Rewards: 3600 Beats or 1800 Exp
Strategy: This is pretty much a harder version of Mission 49. Not only is it
8Keys, but the Synchro Perfect requirement is higher, AND you have to get an
FM. Find a partner you can synchronize with and do the best you can. Luckily,
you only have to do this once.

-------------------------
4.1.54. Conquer the Crew!
-------------------------

Mission Name: Conquer the Crew!
Mission Objective: Get four Perfect in a row (Perfect x3) and three Finish
Moves. Place does not matter. This task must be completed 5 times.
Mission Mode: Crazy Choreography - 4Keys
Song: Your choice
Opponent(s): Other players (or none)
Rewards: 6000 Beats or 3000 Exp
Strategy: And now we're back to CC4! Try to pick a long-ish song so you'll have
enough chances to get the amount of FMs you need. Again, Party Party is a good
choice for length and rhythm for your combo if you can handle the BPM.
Apathetic by Windcheater is a good choice, too. (More can be found in Slinder's
list in 5. Additional Tips.)

-------------------------
4.1.55. One-Two~ One-Two!
-------------------------

Mission Name: One-Two~ One-Two!
Mission Objective: Get 200,000 points. Place does not matter. This task must
be completed 5 times.
Mission Mode: One-Two Party - Easy
Song: Your choice
Opponent(s): Other players (or none)
Rewards: 5200 Beats or 2600 Exp
Strategy: Ah, One-Two Party. Easily one of my favorite modes.

Anyway, the difficulty of this mission depends on how well you can chain in
One-Two Party. I'd suggest songs about 3-4 minutes long for the points--if you
find a song you can chain really well, you might not even need that long.
Chaining in One-Two is a bit difficult, though.

------------------------------
4.1.56. Failure Breeds Success
------------------------------

Mission Name: Failure Breeds Success
Mission Objective: Get four Perfects in a row (Perfect x3). Place does not
matter. This task must be completed 10 times.
Mission Mode: Choreography - 4Keys
Song: Your choice
Opponent(s): Other players (or none)
Rewards: 7600 Beats or 3800 Exp
Strategy: Welcome to what I'd like to call the "Captain Obvious" mission.
You've done missions like this before--just find a song you can chain and go
for it.

-----------------------------
4.1.57. The Beauty of Beat Up
-----------------------------

Mission Name: The Beauty of Beat Up
Mission Objective: Get at least second place with a 100 combo with 4 or more
players in the room. This task must be completed 5 times.
Mission Mode: Beat Up - 4Keys
Song: Your choice
Opponent(s): Other players
Rewards: 4000 Beats or 2000 Exp
Strategy: Beat Up 4Keys is simultaneously an easier and harder version of Beat
Up. On the one hand, it means that you don't have to hit as many arrows. On
the other, it makes the rhythm a bit harder to follow. I like to hit the 4 and
6 keys, anyway, but if that only makes it harder for you, feel free to stick
to 1, 3, 7, and 9.

------------------------------------
4.1.58. Let The Rhythm Take You Away
------------------------------------

Mission Name: Let The Rhythm Take You Away.
Mission Objective: Get 200,000 points with a combo of 200. Place does not
matter. This task must be completed 5 times.
Mission Mode: Beat Up - 6Keys
Song: Your choice
Opponent(s): Other players (or none)
Rewards: 5200 Beats or 2600 Exp
Strategy: Beat Up 6Keys is simultaneously--wait, you've pretty much heard this
before. The rhythm is easier to get into now, but now you have more arrows to
deal with. I would highly recommend a Level 2 or 3 song for this mission so
you can get the required points and combo. It may be a bit harder, but there
are some songs that have a consistent pattern throughout. Experiment and see
what you find~

----------------------
4.1.59. Secret No More
----------------------

Mission Name: Secret No More
Mission Objective: Get at least 3 hearts (Synchro Perfects) and no Bads. Place
does not matter. This task must be completed 5 times.
Mission Mode: Club Dance - 4Keys
Song: Your choice
Opponent(s)/Teammate(s): Other players
Rewards: 6400 Beats or 3200 Exp
Strategy: This mission is a lot more difficult than it appears to be. For one,
vanilla Club Dance only has four Couple moves at a time, and with the length
of time it takes to get to that part, you may not have a lot of chances to get
the hearts you need. I would REALLY recommend using a long song (Kyven's All
Beginning is 104 BPM and has four Couple Dance sections if you need a slow
song) unless you and your partner are good at getting Perfects. If you need a
list, Slinder has complied one that I have linked in 5. Additional Tips.

The difficulty of this mission also stems in part from the facts that vanilla
Club Dance is not popular and requires six people.

--------------------------
4.1.60. Stephanie's Secret
--------------------------

Mission Name: Stephanie's Secret
Mission Objective: Get at least 4 hearts (Synchro Perfects) and 2 Finish Moves.
This task must be completed 10 times.
Mission Mode: Club Dance - 8Keys
Song: Your choice
Opponent(s)/Teammate(s): Other players
Rewards: 8400 Beats or 4200 Exp
Strategy: Remember how Mission 59 sucked? This one is twice as bad. Getting the
Finish Moves should be the easy part, but I would again recommend a long song
to get the hearts you need. The fact that you have to do this 10 times means
that you may be here for a while.

If you complete missions 41-60, your E1 badge will turn yellow.

--------------------------
4.1.61. To a Solid Victory
--------------------------

Mission Name: To a Solid Victory
Mission Objective: Get at least 400,000 points. Place does not matter.
Mission Mode: Crazy Choreography - 4Keys
Song: Audition - Destiny (132 BPM)
Opponent(s): Bobby
Rewards: 2400 Beats or 1200 Exp
Strategy: We're finally back to NPC rooms! This shouldn't be too difficult of
a mission. You don't have to win, so just focus on using whatever techniques
you have to get a high score.

-------------------------------------------------
4.1.62. The Dance That Captures Every Man's Heart
-------------------------------------------------

Mission Name: The Dance That Captures Every Man's Heart/Dance that captures
every men's heart
Mission Objective: Get a team first place.
Mission Mode: Team Crazy Choreography - 4Keys
Song: Audition - Dream Machine (125 BPM)
Opponent(s): Isis Fox and Pip
Teammate(s): Bobby
Rewards: 3200 Beats or 1600 Exp
Strategy: Ignoring the grammatical fail in the alternate title...

Your opponents are about on the same level as Bobby, so you'll actually have to
put in some effort instead of just letting Bobby carry you. Otherwise, it's
about the same strategy as normal: Chance, Insane, and chain. This song is a
bit more difficult than usual to Perfect, so be wary of that.

--------------
4.1.63. Coward
--------------

Mission Name: Coward
Mission Objective: Get a team first place.
Mission Mode: Team Choreography - 8Keys
Song: Audition - In the Groove (130 BPM)
Opponent(s): Billy Backstep and Red Renegade
Teammate(s): Bobby
Rewards: 1600 Beats or 800 Exp
Strategy: As the pathetically small reward hints, this mission is actually
pretty easy. The NPCs are on a much lower level than Bobby, so defeating them
should be a piece of cake as long as you're decent at 8Keys.

----------------
4.1.64. Solitary
----------------

Mission Name: Solitary
Mission Objective: Get at least 400,000 points. Place does not matter.
Mission Mode: Choreography - 4Keys
Song: Audition - Roller Coast (125 BPM)
Opponent(s): Bobby
Rewards: 2400 Beats or 1200 Exp
Strategy: Remember Mission 61? This one is pretty much exactly like that, only
easier. Getting 400,000 shouldn't be very difficult.

-------------------------
4.1.65. Look at My Dance!
-------------------------

Mission Name: Look at My Dance!
Mission Objective: Get no Bads or Misses. Place does not matter.
Mission Mode: Choreography - Expert
Song: Audition - At The Same Time (144 BPM)
Opponent(s): Jungle Prince
Rewards: 4000 Beats or 2000 Exp
Strategy: Ohh, boy. This one's gonna be a doozy.

In case you didn't pay much attention to the info box, this song is 144 BPM,
one of the fastest you've done in Story Mode, and is over four minutes long.
The mode is Choreography - Expert. The objective is to get no Bads or Misses.
I'll let that sink in.

If you're a pro of some sorts, then this may not be very difficult for you.
(Then again, if you're a pro, why are you reading this in the first place?)
For the rest of us, I can offer only a couple of strategies. First of all,
relax. Getting too tense or nervous due to the speed of the song will leave
you prone to making a mistake and failing the mission. Second, take advantage
of Perfect Chance. This song is somewhat difficult to get Perfects on, yes,
but if you can get three of them, then you will essentially be playing three
levels lower than you actually are. This will make high-level moves and the
Finish Move MUCH easier to manage. Try not to get any Cools, though, or you
will lose a level of Perfect Chance.

---------------------------
4.1.66. Look at My Dance! 2
---------------------------

Mission Name: Look at My Dance! 2
Mission Objective: Get first place in a room with at least 5 people. This task
must be completed 5 times.
Mission Mode: Choreography - 8Keys
Song: Your choice
Opponent(s): Other players
Rewards: 4000 Beats or 2000 Exp
Strategy: We go from a really tough mission back to player rooms. You should
know the drill for these by now.

------------------------------------
4.1.67. The Moment I Have Longed For
------------------------------------

Mission Name: The Moment I Have Longed For
Mission Objective: Get first place against a very powerful NPC.
Mission Mode: Crazy Choreography - 8Keys
Song: Audition - Queen of Dancing (135 BPM)
Opponent(s): Crazy Queen
Rewards: 6400 Beats or 3200 Exp
Strategy: Hm. Fitting song title.

Anyway, I'm going to be blunt here: this mission is not going to be easy. Not
only is the Crazy Queen a very difficult NPC (getting 500-700K per game),
but you're facing her on CC8 on a fast song. If you're good at CC8 on fast
songs, then I would suggest utilizing the Random Chance mode of your choice. If
not, using Perfect Chance can help reduce the number of arrows you have to hit.
A warning, though: this will actually decrease your score while it is active,
so you'll have to make up for it with a lot of Perfects and chains. Be VERY
careful of using it with Insane Mode, as well. If you mess up at any point
during an Insane chain, you will lose ALL of your Perfect Chance arrows.

This song isn't terribly difficult to chain, so if all else fails, try to
defeat her with as many Perfects as you can.

--------------------
4.1.68. The New Head
--------------------

Mission Name: The New Head
Mission Objective: Get first place.
Mission Mode: Crazy Choreography - 8Keys
Song: Audition - Queen of Dancing (135 BPM)
Opponent(s): Bobby, Chloe, Travis Trounce, Jack Jumpoff, Diego
Rewards: 7200 Beats or 3600 Exp
Strategy: Hey, remember that pain-in-the-butt mission where you had to beat
Stephanie on CC8 on a fast song? The one that we literally just did? Well, now
we get to do it again!

Seriously, aside from the NPCs, this mission is exactly the same as The Moment
I Have Longed For. The main threats to your victory is Diego, who usually
averages over 600K per game (and sometimes more). The same strategy as the
previous mission pretty much applies--you just need more points.

----------------------------------------
4.1.69. What You Believe Will Come True!
----------------------------------------

Mission Name: What You Believe Will Come True!
Mission Objective: Get five Perfects in a row (Perfect x4). Place does not
matter.
Mission Mode: Choreography - 4Keys
Song: Audition - Driving At Night (140 BPM)
Opponent(s): Trinity
Rewards: 3200 Beats or 1600 Exp
Strategy: Finally, we're getting back to some semi-easy missions! This song can
be a bit tricky to chain at times, but otherwise this mission should be doable.
If the BPM is giving you problems, consider using Perfect Chance to make your
life a bit easier.

--------------------------------------------------
4.1.70. All You Believe Does Not Happen in Reality
--------------------------------------------------

Mission Name: All You Believe Does Not Happen in Reality
Mission Objective: Get a team first place.
Mission Mode: Team Choreography - 8Keys
Song: Audition - Canon 2007 (105 BPM)
Opponent(s): Breaker, Bewitching Betty, Sasha
Teammate(s): Trinity, Calvin Clap
Rewards: 5600 Beats or 2800 Exp
Strategy: Well, it's official: Trinity is the craziest NPC we've met so far.

The good and bad news is that most of these NPCs are kind of terrible, with
the exception of maybe Breaker. The 100% good news is that this is a slow and
easily-chainable song. Use whatever tricks you need to win--this should be an
easy battle.

---------------------------------
4.1.71. Rest within Mother Nature
---------------------------------

Mission Name: Rest within Mother Nature
Mission Objective: Get at least 200,000 points. Place does not matter.
Mission Mode: Choreography - 4Keys
Song: Audition - Dance Fish (130 BPM)
Opponent(s): Jungle Prince
Rewards: 2400 Beats or 1200 Exp
Strategy: Simply put, this is probably one of the easiest missions in Story
Mode so far. The mode is easy, the song is of a moderate pace, and the
objective is not very difficult. To put into perspective: I was lagging for
most of this mission and could barely get any Perfects, and I was able to get
over 200,000 points without any Chance or Insane moves.

-------------------------------
4.1.72. All Together Once Again
-------------------------------

Mission Name: All Together Once Again
Mission Objective: Get at least 2 Finish Moves with at least 5 players in the
room. Place does not matter. This task must be completed 5 times.
Mission Mode: Choreography - 8Keys
Song: Your choice
Opponent(s): Other players
Rewards: 5600 Beats or 2800 Exp
Strategy: This one can be a bit tricky depending on how good you are at 8Keys.
You'll want to make sure that you pick a long song with at least 2 Finish Moves
(possibly more if you want a cushion). A good one for those not so good at
8Keys is Kyven's All Beginning, but as it only has 2 FMs, you'll want to be
careful. If all else fails, feel free to use the long songs list in 5.
Additional Tips.

--------------------------------
4.1.73. Inviting You to My World
--------------------------------

Mission Name: Inviting You to My World
Mission Objective: Get at least 20 Perfects. Place does not matter. This task
must be completed 5 times.
Mission Mode: Crazy Choreography - 8Keys
Song: Your choice
Opponent(s): Other players (or none)
Rewards: 7200 Beats or 3600 Exp
Strategy: This is the last player room mission in Episode 1. Cheer or groan as
necessary.

This one is going to be a little difficult. Getting 20 Perfects is no walk in
the park, and the fact that the mode is CC8 may make this a lot more difficult
for some players, as well (myself included). As usual, I suggest that you pick
a long song with a BPM you can handle. For references, check out Slinder's
list.

------------------
4.1.74. Hi, Bobby!
------------------

Mission Name: Hi, Bobby!/Hi~ Bobbie!
Mission Objective: Get first place.
Mission Mode: Choreography - 4Keys
Song: Audition - Euro 2005 (138 BPM)
Opponent(s): Chloe
Rewards: 4800 Beats or 2400 Exp
Strategy: Double fail on the mission title. Good job, Redbana.

For the next several missions, the objective is going to be to beat the NPC.
Chloe is a mid-level NPC, but the biggest obstacle is probably going to be the
BPM of this song. If you can, I would recommend using at least one level of
Chance and Insane Mode. This song is pretty easy to Perfect, too, so chaining
is a good tactic. As long as you can keep up with the rhythm, this should be
fairly easy.

------------------------------
4.1.75. Chloe, a True Romantic
------------------------------

Mission Name: Chloe, a True Romantic
Mission Objective: Get first place.
Mission Mode: Choreography - Expert
Song: Audition - Can Can (150 BPM)
Opponent(s): Bobby
Rewards: 4000 Beats or 2000 Exp
Strategy: Someone explain why the reward is lower for this mission, please.

Bobby is about on the same level as Chloe as far as difficulty goes, but now
not only are you on Expert, but you're also playing the fastest song in Story
Mode. A combination of Perfect Chance and Insane Mode is the best bet for those
of us who can't do 8Keys on 150 BPM, but as usual, be warned that Perfect
Chance will decrease your score, and Insane Mode will make it easier to miss
some moves. If you can pull of some Insane Perfect chains, though, you should
do okay.

-------------------------------------------
4.1.76. Scotch, High-Skilled in His Own Way
-------------------------------------------

Mission Name: Scotch, High-Skilled in His Own Way
Mission Objective: Get first place.
Mission Mode: Choreography - 8Keys
Song: Audition - Digital Soul (102 BPM)
Opponent(s): Jack Jumpoff
Rewards: 3200 Beats or 1600 Exp
Strategy: Phew, time to take a breather! Even though we're on 8Keys now, this
song is nice and slow, and Jack is one of the easiest NPCs you've had to face
one-on-one in Story Mode. Chance, Insane, chain, etc. to seize victory.

-------------------------------
4.1.77. Pluto, Future Predictor
-------------------------------

Mission Name: Pluto, Future Predictor
Mission Objective: Get first place.
Mission Mode: Crazy Choreography - 4Keys
Song: Audition - Canon Groove (105 BPM)
Opponent(s): Pluto
Rewards: 7200 Beats or 3600 Exp
Strategy: This one is a little more difficult than the previous mission if only
because we're on CC4 now and because Pluto is like a toned-down Diego.
Fortunately, the song is slow and easy to chain, so just use your usual
strategy to win.

Unfortunately, Pluto does cheat: he gets an extra move at the very end of the
song. As long as you're pretty well ahead of him, you should be fine.

--------------------
4.1.78. It's Raining
--------------------

Mission Name: It's Raining
Mission Objective: Get first place.
Mission Mode: Crazy Choreography - 8Keys
Song: Audition - Chinese Lady (118 BPM)
Opponent(s): Travis Trounce
Rewards: 4000 Beats or 2000 Exp
Strategy: And now things get a bit more difficult. Chinese Lady is a bit fast
(and incredibly annoying) for a CC8 song, so you may want to use Perfect Chance
if that gives you trouble. The good news is that Travis is only a bit more
difficult than Jack, so a few Insane Perfect chains in the right places can
easily put you on top.

-----------------------------
4.1.79. O-So-Passionate Perna
-----------------------------

Mission Name: O-So-Passionate Perna
Mission Objective: Get first place.
Mission Mode: Crazy Choreography - 4Keys
Song: Audition - 3254 Techno Party (142 BPM)
Opponent(s): Perna
Rewards: 6400 Beats or 3200 Exp
Strategy: Yeah, this one's probably gonna be difficult. Perna's a decent NPC,
the song is pretty fast, and we're still in Crazy Choreography. This mission's
saving grace is that we're back to 4Keys, so that should make your life a bit
easier. If you need to use Perfect Chance, feel free, but be warned that Perna
is not going to be as easy as most of the other NPCs.

----------------------------
4.1.80. Perfecto Macho Diego
----------------------------

Mission Name: Perfecto Macho Diego
Mission Objective: Get first place.
Mission Mode: Crazy Choreography - 8Keys
Song: Audition - Heavy Metal Syndrome (145 BPM)
Opponent(s): Diego
Rewards: 8000 Beats or 4000 Exp
Strategy: Remember how difficult Mission 68 was? This is MUCH worse.

I shouldn't have to remind you at this point how big of a pain in the butt
Diego can be. He chains like crazy and always gets at LEAST 700,000 points,
often more. The real kicker is that we're having to do a really fast song on
CC8. Perfect Chancing can help you with hitting the arrows, but you're going to
fall behind Diego unless you can manage to get a lot of Insane Perfects. The
best way to win, sadly, is to get lucky and hope that Diego doesn't decide to
pull a x12 out of his hat.

If you complete missions 61-80, your E1 badge will turn bronze. We're almost
there!

------------------------------------
4.1.81. Join the Hall Cup Tournament
------------------------------------

Mission Name: Join the Hall Cup Tournament/Enter into the Hall Cup
Mission Objective: Get first place.
Mission Mode: Choreography - 4Keys
Song: Audition - What Else Do You Want? (128 BPM)
Opponent(s): Tara Tappin, Cassie Canshake, Eric Idol, Shim Shammin, Gunther
Thunder
Rewards: 2400 Beats or 1200 Exp
Strategy: If you thought these missions were going to start being cakewalk
again, you thought wrong. Though not NEARLY as tough as Diego, these NPCs are
no pushovers, and they'll be getting a lot of Perfect chains throughout the
match. Luckily, we're in 4Keys again, and this song has a solid rhythm to
Perfect to.

---------------------------------------------------
4.1.82. The Hall Cup Tournament Preliminary Round 1
---------------------------------------------------

Mission Name: The Hall Cup Tournament Preliminary Round 1
Mission Objective: Get at least third place.
Mission Mode: Choreography - 4Keys
Song: Audition - B Soul Funk (104 BPM)
Opponent(s): Miru, Susan, Dil, Erika, Pip
Rewards: 3200 Beats or 1600 Exp
Strategy: Phew, we're down to a slower song. Much like last mission, though,
these NPCs are pretty tough and will pull some impressive chains. Do what you
need to win.

Also, buggy script is buggier than usual...

---------------------------------------------------
4.1.83. The Hall Cup Tournament Preliminary Round 2
---------------------------------------------------

Mission Name: The Hall Cup Tournament Preliminary Round 2
Mission Objective: Get at least second place with no Bads or Misses.
Mission Mode: Choreography - 4Keys
Song: Audition - Mov Mov (107 BPM)
Opponent(s): Helen, Jim Jam, Willem, Bruce, Riff Raff
Rewards: 3600 Beats or 1800 Exp
Strategy: This is the first mission where we've had to get no Bads or Misses
AND get a certain place. I would advise against using Insane since not getting
a Perfect at the right spot will net you a Miss, so you're going to have to
rely on Chance and chaining to complete this mission. As usual, the NPCs aren't
going to be easy and WILL chain you out of second when you least expect it.
This song is fairly easy to Perfect, though.

---------------------------------------------------
4.1.84. The Hall Cup Tournament Preliminary Round 3
---------------------------------------------------

Mission Name: The Hall Cup Tournament Preliminary Round 3
Mission Objective: Get first place with five Perfects in a row (Perfect x4).
Mission Mode: Choreography - 4Keys
Song: Audition - Catch (120 BPM)
Opponent(s): Candid Kara, Adam Bomb, Melissa Maul, Erika, Charlie
Rewards: 4000 Beats or 2000 Exp
Strategy: Oddly enough, the hard part of this mission isn't winning--it's
getting that chain required to pass. If you can, try to get it before Level 6
and spend the rest of the song focusing on accumulating points. This song isn't
very fast, but it is hard to hear over the game sounds, so you might have to
watch the bar a bit to Perfect. A mission like this lends itself perfectly to
using Insane, but of course you'll probably want to use Chance to win, as well.

--------------------------
4.1.85. Bobby is Kidnapped
--------------------------

Mission Name: Bobby is Kidnapped/Bobby's Kidnapping
Mission Objective: Get a team first place.
Mission Mode: Team Choreography - 4Keys
Song: Audition - Funky Town (130 BPM)
Opponent(s): Victoria Vision, Aris
Teammate(s): Bobby
Rewards: 4400 Beats or 2200 Exp
Strategy: Actually, it should be Chloe is Kidnapped, but whatever.

This isn't too difficult of a mission. The NPCs are about the same level as
Bobby, so as long as you can keep up, you should be able to win.

--------------------------
4.1.86. A Battle with Dino
--------------------------

Mission Name: A Battle with Dino/Showdown with Dino
Mission Objective: Get at least 400,000 points, no Bads, and no Misses. Place
does not matter.
Mission Mode: Choreography - Expert
Song: Audition - Canon 2007 (105 BPM)
Opponent(s): Dino
Rewards: 4800 Beats or 2400 Exp
Strategy: Bad news: XTrap still disconnects you if you use Perfect Chance on
slower songs. Even if it didn't, using Perfect Chance would make getting
400,000 points difficult, especially since no Bads and no Misses means it's
risky using Insane Perfect. Dino himself can't even hit 400,000 in an
average game, so you're probably going to have to Chance a bit to reach the
goal. The only saving grace of this mission is that you don't have to win.

--------------------------
4.1.87. Support from Peers
--------------------------

Mission Name: Support from Peers
Mission Objective: Get no Bads or Misses. Place does not matter.
Mission Mode: Choreography - Expert
Song: Audition - Elec Bossa (123 BPM)
Opponent(s): Travis Trounce, Pluto, Bobby, Chloe, Diego
Rewards: 5200? Beats or 3600 Exp
Strategy: I'm not sure if that Beats reward is correct. Audifan says it's 7200,
but the game says it's 5200.

Whether you think this mission is easier or harder than the last one depends on
how grateful you are that Perfect Chance works in this one. You don't have to
get a certain number of points or anything, so just focuses on hitting all the
notes.

---------------------------------------
4.1.88. The Hall Cup Tournament Round 1
---------------------------------------

Mission Name: The Hall Cup Tournament Round 1/The Hall Cup Main Round 1
Mission Objective: Get at least third place with at least 300,000 points.
Mission Mode: Choreography - Expert
Song: Audition - Who Who (109 BPM)
Opponent(s): Cindy, Chauntel, Sergio, Pedro, Ken
Rewards: 6400 Beats or 3200 Exp
Strategy: Thanks to Audifan for the full objective. Getting 300,000 points is
going to be the easy part--you'll need at least 400,000 to complete this
mission. This song is short, so you won't have a lot of chances to catch up if
you mess up. It is slow, though, so as long as you use Chance and/or Insane,
you should win.

------------------------
4.1.89. A Mysterious Man
------------------------

Mission Name: A Mysterious Man
Mission Objective: Get at least 300,000 points with no Bads or Misses. Place
does not matter.
Mission Mode: Choreography - Expert
Song: Audition - Yo! DJ! (135 BPM)
Opponent(s): Harvey
Rewards: 5200 Beats or 2600 Exp
Strategy: This mission actually isn't as hard as it looks. As long as you can
get a few Perfect chains, you should be able to reach 300,000 points even with
Perfect Chance on.

----------------------------
4.1.90. Searching for Harvey
----------------------------

Mission Name: Searching for Harvey
Mission Objective: Get at least 500,000 points with no Bads or Misses. Place
does not matter.
Mission Mode: Choreography - 8Keys
Song: Audition - 3254 Techno Party (142 BPM)
Opponent(s): Harvey
Rewards: 5600 Beats or 2800 Exp
Strategy: This mission is pretty much a more difficult version of A Mysterious
Man. Harder mode, faster song, and higher point requirement. The song's length
is good news for your score--it's very possible to get over 500,000 points with
Perfect Chance on as long as you get a few chains throughout the song--but bad
news for the no Bad, no Miss requirement. If you passed Mission 80, though,
you should be used to 8Keying songs of this speed.

---------------------------------------
4.1.91. The Hall Cup Tournament Round 2
---------------------------------------

Mission Name: The Hall Cup Tournament Round 2/The Hall Cup Main Round 2
Mission Objective: Get a team first place with no Bads or Misses.
Mission Mode: Team Choreography - 4Keys
Song: Audition - Dance Dance (132 BPM)
Opponent(s): Jared, Tania, Andrew
Teammate(s): Rudy, Marianne
Rewards: 6800 Beats or 3400 Exp
Strategy: Another mission where you have to win with no Bads or Misses. The
good news is that it's 4Keys. The bad news is that it's also 132 BPM. As usual,
using Insane is probably too risky, so depending on how good you are at Chance,
you may have to resort to chains to win. You might have to watch the bar a bit
for this one--getting Perfects is a little difficult in this song. All of the
NPCs are pretty good, so part of this mission is hoping that your teammates
pull some awesome chains while your opponents lag behind.

-----------------------------
4.1.92. A Well-Deserved Break
-----------------------------

Mission Name: A Well-Deserved Break
Mission Objective: Get no Bads or Misses. Place does not matter.
Mission Mode: Choreography - Expert
Song: Audition - Beat City (120 BPM)
Opponent(s): Bobby, Chloe
Rewards: 5600 Beats or 2800 Exp
Strategy: For once, a no Bads or Misses mission where we don't have to worry
about points or place. This song isn't too fast, Perfect Chance doesn't
disconnect you, and this mode isn't too terribly difficult, so this should be
a fairly easy mission.

--------------------------------------------
4.1.93. Meet Kim, a Member of the Crazy Crew
--------------------------------------------

Mission Name: Meet Kim, a Member of the Crazy Crew/Meet Kim, a member of the
Crazy Team
Mission Objective: Get at least 400,000 points and 5 Perfects in a row (Perfect
x4 chain). Place does not matter.
Mission Mode: Choreography - 8Keys
Song: Audition - Can Can (150 BPM)
Opponent(s): Kim
Rewards: 6000 Beats or 3000 Exp
Strategy: Oh, boy. Can Can.

This mission is a lot harder than it looks. Getting 500,000 points is pretty
easy, especially with the amount of Perfect x3 chains you'll probably get over
the course of this mission, but getting 5 Perfects in a row is never an easy
feat. Just try to focus on the beat and use Perfect Chance if you can't keep up
with this song.

---------------------------------------
4.1.94. The Hall Cup Tournament Round 3
---------------------------------------

Mission Name: The Hall Cup Tournament Round 3/The Hall Cup Main Round 3
Mission Objective: Get a team first place.
Mission Mode: Team Choreography - 8Keys
Song: Audition - Beat City (120 BPM)
Opponent(s): Taku, Lania, Juliana
Teammate(s): Neru, Jenny
Rewards: 7200 Beats or 3600 Exp
Strategy: The hardest part of this mission is the fact that the NPCs are on
such a high level. That's good news for your team but bad news if the other
team, especially Taku, starts chaining like crazy. Use your usual tricks and
whatever amount of luck you need to get your team to do well and the other team
to suck.

-------------------------------------------------
4.1.95. A Match with a Member of the Crazy Crew 1
-------------------------------------------------

Mission Name: A Match with a Member of the Crazy Crew 1/Battle with Crazy Team
Member 1
Mission Objective: Get no Bads or Misses. Place does not matter.
Mission Mode: Choreography - 8Keys
Song: Audition - Driving at Night (140 BPM)
Opponent(s): Kyle
Rewards: 6000 Beats or 3000 Exp
Strategy: Yikes, this is a tough one, but not quite as tough as Searching for
Harvey. As usual, use Perfect Chance if you can't keep up with the song.
Fortunately, you don't have to win--Kyle usually gets at least 900,000 points
each round.

-------------------------------------------------
4.1.96. A Match with a Member of the Crazy Crew 2
-------------------------------------------------

Mission Name: A Match with a Member of the Crazy Crew 2/Battle with Crazy Team
Member 2
Mission Objective: Get at least 400,000 points with 10 Perfects and 4 Perfects
in a row (Perfect x3 combo). Place does not matter.
Mission Mode: Choreography - 8Keys
Song: Audition - Get on the Floor (140 BPM)
Opponent(s): Tsukusa
Rewards: 6400 Beats or 3200 Exp
Strategy: This mission is actually easier than the last one. Getting the
400,000 points is pretty easy even with Insane on; the hardest part, again, is
going to be getting the x3 combo. This song does have an easier beat to follow
than Driving at Night, though.

------------------------------------------------
4.1.97. The Hall Cup Tournament Semi-Final Round
------------------------------------------------

Mission Name: The Hall Cup Tournament Semi-Final Round/The Hall Cup Semi-Finals
Mission Objective: Get a team first place.
Mission Mode: Team Crazy Choreography - 4Keys
Song: Audition - Can Can (150 BPM)
Opponent(s): Celine, Karl
Teammate(s): Tom
Rewards: 7200 Beats or 3600 Exp
Strategy: Oh, look, Can Can again. Fun.

This is like a harder version of Mission 94. Fast song, Crazy Choreography, and
high-level NPCs are all going to make this a challenge. Feel free to use
Perfect Chance if the song's too fast for you, but remember that that will
cause your score to drop, so you'll have to utilize Insane and/or some awesome
chains if you want to keep up.

-------------------------------------------
4.1.98. The Hall Cup Tournament Final Round
-------------------------------------------

Mission Name: The Hall Cup Tournament Final Round/The Hall Cup Finals
Mission Objective: Get at least 400,000 points and 10 Perfects. Place does not
matter.
Mission Mode: Crazy Choreography - 4Keys
Song: Audition - Dream Machine (125 BPM)
Opponent(s): Dokibi
Rewards: 7600 Beats or 3800 Exp
Strategy: This is actually a lot easier than Mission 97 was. You don't have to
win--all you need to do is get enough Perfects and points, the latter which you
can easily get with Chance and/or Insane. Dream Machine is a bit tricky to
Perfect, though, so you might want to watch the bar.

---------------------------------------
4.1.99. A Showdown with the Crazy Queen
---------------------------------------

Mission Name: A Showdown with the Crazy Queen/Showdown with the Crazy Queen
Mission Objective: Get at least 600,000 points with no Cools or Bads. Place
does not matter.
Mission Mode: Crazy Choreography - 8Keys
Song: Audition - At The Same Time (144 BPM)
Opponent(s): Crazy Queen
Rewards: 8000 Beats or 4000 Exp
Strategy: This is it! The final battle against the evil queen of Audition Town!

... Anyone else think this music is horribly unfitting?

In any case, this mission is actually a lot harder than you might think it is.
Unless you're really good at 8Keys, you WILL have to use Perfect Chance if you
want to hit enough moves to reach 600,000, and Perfect Chance's reduced score
makes that even more difficult than it already is. The hardest part of this
mission, arguably, is that you can't get any Cools. Any amount of lag can
screw you over--this is especially troublesome since this map lags on older
graphics cards. If you feel like you're barely going to get a move, FORCE MISS!
You're not penalized for Missing in this mission, and the last thing you want
is to almost be at your goal and then get a Cool.

When you reach 600,000 points, feel free to step away from the computer so as
to avoid messing up.

4.1.100. Good Bye, Audition Town
--------------------------------

Mission Name: Good Bye, Audition Town/Goodbye Audition Town
Mission Objective: Get no Bads or Misses. Place does not matter.
Mission Mode: Choreography - 4Keys
Song: Audition - No Space (138 BPM)
Opponent(s): Diego, Pluto, Bobby, Travis Trounce, Chloe
Rewards: 8400 Beats or 4200 Exp
Strategy: I find it odd that this mission is worth more than Perfecto Macho
Diego.

At any rate, this is your standard no Bad, no Miss mission. The song is kind of
fast, and the fact that it's CC4 may make this a bit more difficult, but
otherwise the same strategy as usual applies: use Perfect Chance. Oddly enough,
Perfect Chance's point reduction doesn't seem to activate in this mission...

If you complete missions 81-100, your E1 badge will turn pink. Congratulations,
you've completed Episode 1!

--------------
4.2. Episode 2
--------------

As stated before, you can move on to Episode 2 without completing Episode 1.
Episode 2 currently has 80 missions.

----------------------
4.2.1. An Ordinary Day
----------------------

Mission Name: An Ordinary Day
Mission Objective: Get 3 Perfects in a row (Perfect x2 combo) with 4 or more
players in the room. Place does not matter. This task must be completed 3
times.
Mission Mode: Choreography - 4Keys
Song: Your choice
Opponent(s): Other players
Rewards: 2000 Beats or 1000 Exp
Strategy: If you haven't gotten very far in Episode 1, this could be your first
mission in which you must go against other human players. Basically, you make
a room, set the mode to Choreography - 4Keys, and get at least 3 other people
in the room with you. The song can be set to anything you want, and all you
have to do is complete the objective 3 times. (You don't have to do it in a
row, though.)

----------------------------
4.2.2. Memories or Fantasies
----------------------------

Mission Name: Memories or Fantasies
Mission Objective: Get 3 Perfects in a row (Perfect x2 combo) with 4 or more
players in the room. Place does not matter. This task must be completed 3
times.
Mission Mode: Choreography - 8Keys
Song: Your choice
Opponent(s): Other players
Rewards: 2800 Beats or 1400 Exp
Strategy: This mission is exactly the same as the previous one, except you're
on 8Keys now. Like before, you can pick any song you want.

5. Additional Tips
------------------

This section is for the tips that either don't fit into the walkthrough or
could easily apply anywhere in the game. Feel free to submit your own tips
by e-mailing me.

For 8keys, place your fingers on the 4, 8, and 9 keys. It may seem awkward at
first, but it actually helps your fingers adjust to using all eight keys.
(Copy and paste from my Mission 2 strategy, submitted by Vince.)

A lot of people make the mistake of pressing arrows like crazy for faster
songs. While this may seem like a good idea, it's not the best one to start
with. Start by pressing the keys a bit slower to avoid finger slips. As you
get better, you can go faster and faster. (Submitted by me.)

Chancing is a very useful tool... if you can get the hang of it. If you're
the host of the room you are in, you can adjust the Chance settings by using
the drop-down menu in the upper-right hand corner of the screen. (This does
include Story Mode.) I highly recommend that you start with only one Chance
arrow per bar and then move up as you get better. (Submitted by me.)

"during the 'break' between every move, when the lvl 9 or 11 sign (during the 
'break') is a bit brighter than it normally is. The move AFTER that one is the
finish move. So, if you chance and you are afraid of missing that move which
will result in a 'bye bye finish move' situation, you know ahead that you
probably don't want to chance that one in case." (Submitted by -StarGirl)

I've also noticed that this applies to the last move of each level, too.
Thanks, -StarGirl!

If you're lagging, try moving to a low-populated server. It works wonders!
(Submitted by me.)

If you have a player room mission where you need to get a high score, a large
chain, or something else that could take a while, you should try to use a long
song. Here's a list of several of them in Audition:

6. FAQ
------

This is the section where I answer frequently asked questions... or just ones
I make up.

Q: Can I submit my own strategy?
A: Sure! If it's good, I'll be glad to add it to this guide! If you have a
strategy for a mission I have not yet defeated, I'll test it for myself and
then add it.

Q: How can I submit a strategy?
A: See section 7.1. for details on how to contact me.

Q: How come you mention older songs in a lot of your strategies?
A: In late July '09, Audition had a HUGE update that included replacing most of
the songs in Story Mode, presumably to make it easier for newer players to
pass the first 20 missions. These older songs will not be mentioned in Missions
20 and beyond due to the fact that I had not reached those missions before the
update.

Q: What do those E1/E2 badges above your name mean?
A: The E1/E2 badges are special achievements that are given when you complete a
certain chunk of missions. You get one for every 20 missions you defeat. I'll
tell you which is which in the context of the guide. (For instance, Mission 20
of Episode 1 will also have the color for the badge you get in its strategy.)

Q: How do I play -insert mode here-?
A: I will not be discussing how to play specific modes in this guide. For most
modes, pressing F12 while the mode is selected in a room will allow you to view
a short guide on how to play. For others, there are usually guides on the
official forums.

Well, this is (almost) the end of the guide. I hope you've found it helpful.
If not, then I do plan to expand on it as soon as possible. Until then,
