Hints & Tips

Alshand River
Alshand River

WIN: Destroy the enemy mining stations.
LOSS: All your units are disabled or destroyed.

Your Kamren Starting Units

Combat Support Buildings
2 Assault Guns
12 Infantry
4 Tanks
1 Constructor
2 Engineers
1 Scanner
1 Mining Station
1 Light Units Plant
2 Gun Turrets
2 Anti-Aircraft Turrets

NOTE: The enemy clan is Aspen and Sheevat.

TIP:

A) In this mission you must destroy a whole army. You start off in the bottom left corner, slightly above the bottom. Build a few Mining Stations first. Then build an Air Plant and a Large Unit Plant. There are a few Sheevat Spawns around. Then enemy is on the other side of the mountain across the water. Build a good force of Rocket Launchers. Then just keep sending them at the enemy until the enemy is dead. Also build a Sea unit for the range of the Missle Cruisers. - Lancelot (MAX2) ..Merlin (Kali) (from Reliable MAX2 Players Strategy Forum)

B) Lessons I Learned (SIM game): Keep some Anti-Air units/turrets with your ground troops and buildings. Include Fighters in aircraft groups for protection from enemy Fighters. Enemy Anti-Aircraft Turrets will take out your Ground Attack Planes before they can shoot. So I sacrificed 1 or 2 Fighters to draw the enemy fire ... once the enemy AA Turret has fired twice, that is all the shots it gets for that turn and it is safe to come in with 2 Ground Attack Planes that will take out the AA turret. - CaptComal

C) (SIM game) First set your Light Units Plant to build Scout and Mobile Anti-Aircraft units (set on repeat). You start with several tanks, assault guns and infantry. Spread them out single file as a row across the screen (mixing units as you go down the line). Then slowly move that wall up until you get about 3/4ths the way up the screen. As you move up you will meet Sheevat units. The Incubators you meet are deadly only to your Infantry, but since you have Tanks and Assault Guns next to your Infantry take out the Incubators as you meet them. While your units are moving up the screen, immediately take your one Constructor you have and build a mining station on the nearest mineral deposit. Use your Engineers to build a Radar Station and Anti-Aircraft Turret next to the new Mining Station. Build an Aircraft Units Plant next to the new Mining station along with two Power Stations and a couple Storage Units. By the time these are done, your wall of combat units should have cleared the whole bottom area of the map on your side of the mountain. Move your Constructor and Engineers up to the 11 Mineral Deposit halfway up the side of the mountain. Build a Mining Station and Radar Station and Anti-Aircraft Turret. Once you sweep the entire left side of the map with your wall of combat units, all the enemy Sheevat units will be destroyed. Build three Anti-Aircraft Turrets and a Radar Station at the start of the "path" through the mountain and gather your forces there. Build a Heavy Units Plant and two more Air Units Plants by these Anti-Aircraft Turrets. Set the Plant to build Tank, Assault Gun, Rocket Launcher and set it to repeat. At this time you also may wish to build a couple Repair Units. Now just build aircraft to form groups of 1 AWAC, 2 Fighters, 2 Ground Attack Planes. Each group can take out an enemy Anti-Aircraft Turret. The enemy has a few Missile Launchers and Rocket Launchers, so I built a few Missile Turrets to protect my forces. I ignored other enemy units and just took out their Missile Launchers and Rocket Launchers and after that their range was not that great. Your Ground Attack Planes also can be used to destroy them. The enemy will send Fighters to attack your planes, so be sure to have a couple Fighters of your own for protection. - CaptComal
