WR1-01: Spann Island

Spann Island Guide

Recommended CO: Anybody but Kanbei

Opponent: Olaf

Speed Requirement: 10 days

Points: 999pt S-rank

Days: 8+





Overview: Distract Olaf’s units from your main Infantry by
offering more vulnerable Infantry units for the pickings. Build a Tank from day 3
onward to provide the offensive firepower and armored shields to
protect the Infantry during the HQ capture.





Kanbei
cannot follow this walkthrough exactly, but he has the same basic
idea: build Infantry for the first two days, and then build Tanks the
rest of the time with the occasional Infantry to join with your
wounded northern Infantry. Grit can follow this walkthrough, but I
recommend you do NOT use him because of his direct and soldier
firepower weakness.

The mountain Infantry is the Infantry that will capture Olaf’s HQ. It depends on the unit adjacent to Olaf’s HQ. The easiest HQ captures are done with an Artillery unit in that base. If Olaf refuses to cooperate, reload from your previous save and try again.





Olaf’s western Tank will be distracted by your Infantry on the road. As long as you continue to build Infantry from that NE base, you will have nothing to worry about from that Tank.





As long as you do not place an Infantry on roads or plains, Olaf’s Recon in the southeastern corner will be fixated on that Infantry. You can place a Tank on a road to keep the Recon away from the capturing Infantry.





Destroying two units should be enough for the power score. If you’re paranoid, you can destroy another unit as long as it does not compromise your technique score.





On the other hand, you can only lose two units at most. Start spamming Infantry on Day 8. You are likely to lose the Infantry in the SE corner, and probably a Tank that is surrounding the HQ.
