Wars World New's War Room Challenge Challenge 2014!!!

Post by MysteriousLad » Mon Nov 17, 2014 4:28 am

Hello WWN!
This forum and site is a fansite, however we seem to have lost are enthusiasm for this great game of ours; Advance Wars. To attempt to slightly reignite this passion of ours I'm going to start a Wars World New's War Room Challenge Challenge (or for short WWNWRCC.). It's basically going to be a competition using Xen's War Room Challenge 2012 hack for AW2. For everyones information I want there to be try harding, strategizing and complete annoyance that Von Bolt is way to overpowered.

Things you'll need How the competition will work
In this thread you can discuss your strategies, capsrage at peeps for breaking your record or just discuss Xen's hard work. However that's not everything to this, I'm going to be keeping track of who's got the highest score with each map. A score will be ingluenced by these factors:
First comes the actuall map score you get at the end of a map.
Then if people are drawing with that the number of days they did it in will decide.

To post a record just post which map the record was made, the number of days, the score and the CO used to get it. I'l then update the list. The winner will be the person with the most records at the end of 2014.

Oh, one side note; all records must be made on a clean new save. So no using past records, we're starting afresh.

Sami is great for suicide rushes and I've used her for a lot of games, however it's hard to get 300 points with her. Kindle is my option for larger maps with many bases, the fire power bonus from the SCOP is insane on larger maps and the COP if timed correctly can cripple funds for the opponent for 1 turn if they have strong units. It also makes for a last chance defence against your cities being captured.

Also just for anyone who wants to know - The scoring in this is exactly the same as standard AW2 War Room, with the only difference is that the S-Rank Score range is a flat 300, rather than 280-300.

I had an 18 day 300pt Ganglands Kanbei win back when I playtested it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cTJejN6SWvI

Also you should track the best score for each CO since that's what we used to do :v

I'll do that as well then :)
That doesn't count anymore btw, all record must be fresh.

Why, exactly? We've never had any such expectation for score-tracking threads before. If people want to share cool scores they got in the past, they should feel free. The only issue is that really old scores might have been made on a different version of the hack and involve strategies that don't work any more.

I haven't actually played a lot of this, but I S-Ranked Talysman with every CO a while back. I really like that map. I don't have the number of days readily available for anyone except the top 5, though.

I should also get to clearing the whole War Room on the Grimm hack sometime.

^That first point will mostly apply to anyone who did testing in the Hack's Open Testing thread anyway.

I made some slight map tweaks to fix bugs and a few of the background rules (mostly involving weather, to make it not-random). I should pull out some of my final scores though. Had to test that CO code :V

My 18 day isn't even optimal, everything after capturing Olaf's HQ is improvised and even Olaf's HQ capture could be shaved by a day.

I feel I should point out that the given time for Old Wounds is incorrect: The game says the speed limit is 25 days but it's actually 16 days.

On that note, Old Wounds, Split Mountain and Bank Robbery are the only maps I don't have S-Ranks on. Any advice?
