Ditched my previous attempt because I was down to 6 or 7 days left, didn't have the means to keep up with his production and he had a couple of oozes angel guarding the weak spots and I didn't have the firepower to take them out. So, started again. Haven't done anything with the top front and they seem to be doing okay, though once they get the crystals destroyed, I'll need to be ready to rush the weakpoints. I've captured one of the airports at the bottom of the screen and am racing the enemy to the second. Working on getting some missiles and such to start working on the oozes and should have a bomber next round. Unit-wise, we're about even strength, though those oozes count for a lot for him, so we'll see.

Bottom section isn’t really needed outside of simply cutting off the infantry and a few blobs.
Just push forward quickly enough and capture those top factories. Really gives an edge.
A few infantry and mechs plus a tank/chopper will shred blob

It's nice to grab some of the towers and cities though, it'll give you a huge economy/firepower boost.

True but you don’t need that many outside of cutting things off south while building in middle and pushing north ASAP

Got it! Actually had another failed attempt prior. One more day I would have had it, litterally. Had destroyed two of the weakpoints, had damaged the third, had a bomber right next to it that could deliver the final blow and just came up one day short. But, ultimately succeeded. Although I was real worried in the final cutscene when I was mashing the text and accidentally clicked on "no". Really thought I'd have to redo the fight or have the three days left to fight the giant blob again or something. But, Hawke was there to save the day. Thanks to the 6 blobs I took out, this was one of my highest scoring missions (maybe the highest). 100 points for speed and power, 96 for technique and 240 points for the blobs.

For the debate over the southern section, I did send three infantry units down there plus had a battle copter take out some of his guys. I agree that they don't add much, but keeping him from getting airports is handy and the cities and com towers do help. Only captured one of the northern factories, and that wasn't until the last 2 days of the campaign. He usually had a blob or two next to the factories, so even when I took out the new unit it just produced, it wasn't wise to move onto the square. Bombers and missiles were my primary means of offense especially after the first few days, just to hit things hard and from a distance. Didn't send anything to the second front and Rachel did fine, though she didn't take out the third crystal until day 20 or so, so we were cutting things close there. But right after she took the last crystal out, I got a nice tag that really turned things around and spelled the end on the main front.

Overall, I liked the game. Some of the missions I could have done without (agree with gm: can't say I was a fan of the timed missions), but in general, I enjoyed the game. Not really getting into the COs other than a couple of missions hampered me some and I think there's a way to assign skills or something that I didn't mess with, so I didn't get the full experience, but that'll be stuff to look into down the road, along with the standalone missions and such (got 8000 points to spend on something). But I'm intrigued to see what Days of Ruin has to offer. Tomorrow or Saturday I'll get that topic going and we can jump into that. Thanks to gm, Xenesis, others that have offered tips, encouragement, or just followed our exploits.
