Started the next mission, but only done Day 1 so far. Actually spent a bit of time picking COs and I think I made some decent choices, but like to hear what you guys think. For red, I have Javier for the com towers and Jake (open plains, no other obvious good choice). Blue is Sasha and Colin for no reason other than I didn't see anyone that gives naval bonuses and cheap units and Market Crash are useful. Green is Eagle for the air force bonuses and Sami because she has three stars next to Eagle's name, so I guess they work well together or something. No idea if that actually corresponds to any game mechanic, but another of those "why not?" choices. Plan is have red take the three com towers, have green and blue advance and beyond that, not sure what my strategy's going to be. Guess we'll see what the enemy does and go from there. Most of the units obviously are in the middle section, so best plan may be have red go defense, just to tie up enemy units, then have green send as many bombers and such as they can to go directly for the obelisk.

The tag system gives anyone who's paired up with a CO which they have affinity stars with a luck-roll bonus. Each Star gives +5% to the maximum luck roll, so Eagle/Sami have a +15% to their maximum luck rolls (the standard for COs who aren't Nell/Flak/Jugger/Sonja/Rachel CO Power is 10%).

So with that in mind, it's probably worthwhile pairing Jess with Javier, for both the minor luck boost and the powered up Tag CO Power.

But you've picked up on the basic strategy of the map already! :)

Javier/jake orange star
Grit/hawke blue team
Eagle/sensei green team

That’s what I’ll be using.

I’ve heard max is pretty useful on green team so there’s that.

Yeah, anyone with an Aircraft attack boost (Eagle, Grimm, Max, Hawke) can do very well on Green because the Bombers can shred any of the fixed emplacements (Cannons, Pipe Seams, Obelisks) in one attack.

Not having a lot of success on this one, although part of that may just be me wanting a good start, so I don't think I've gone past day 5 or 6 before restarting. Mostly using ranged stuff with the orange team, so I've swapped Jake for Grit, but not sure if that's the best move. Hard part is getting the green planes to/near the obelisk without AA missiles or a fighter taking them out. Wish I could do something better with blue, too, but my naval skills suck. May have to check out a couple of guides on this one, just to get things started, then run with things myself from there.
