Chapter 01

US Europe
Will: ...Huh? Where am I? What's this room doing here? Ed: Where am I?! What is this room?!
Lin: This is the war room, Will. You can come here to learn tactics for the current battle. Lin: This is our Briefing Room, Ed. You can come here for tips on tactics for the current battle.
Will: Oh, that makes sen... Wait a minute! How do you know my name? And how did you pull me off the battlefield like that? And who are you, anyway?! Ed: Wait! How do you know my name?! And I was just in the middle of a battle, you know! I don't even know your name!
Lin: Please. Now is not the time to worry about minor details. You don't need to know my name. You just need to take my advice. Lin: Please don't concern yourself with such minor details here. You don't have to know my name. Suffice it to say that you will find my advice useful.
Will: Um... OK? Ed: Okay...
Lin: Now, let's get down to brass tacks. It's tactics time! Position your units next to the enemy, and attack them. That's it. Lin: Now, let's get down to business. I have some tips on tactics for you. Position your units beside the the enemy and then attack them. That is all.
Will: ...What do you mean, that's it?! Ed: Th-That's all you're telling me?!
Lin: What? It's a perfectly good strategy. ...Oh, fine. I'll tell you more. The more damage you do to an enemy, the weaker its counterstrike will be. Striking first is very important. Make your first hit count. Lin: I thought it perfectly clear and concise. Well, if you insist on knowing more... The greater damage you do to an enemy, the weaker its counterstrike. So make those attacks count!
Will: I think I understand. Thank you. Ed: I got it! Thanks!
Lin: We'll take care of this battle for you, but remember these tips in the future. ...That's it. You can go now. Oh, and try not to get killed, all right? Lin: You don't have to do battle right now, but this will be useful in the future. Okay, that's all from the Briefing Room for now. Good luck out there!

Chapter 02

US Europe
Lin: This is the war room. It's a place to learn battle tactics and strategies. If you've already been here, then welcome back. If it's your first time, I hope it's useful. Lin: This is the Briefing Room, the place to come for tips on tactics for the current battle. If you've already been here, then welcome back. If it's your first time, I hope it's useful.
Will: So...you give me hints on how to defeat enemies and win battles? Ed: Tips on tactics? So you'll give me hints on how to defeat enemies and win battles?
Lin: Smart kid. Now listen up. Artillery has a long range, which makes it very useful. However, it can't attack adjacent enemies. Block the road with your tank, and pound enemies with the artillery. Don't allow the tank and artillery to get separated. Lin: That's right. Now listen carefully... Block the road with the Tank and use the Mech Gun to attack. It's a good plan to move the Mech Gun in tandem with the Tank to support it. Don't allow your Tank and Mech Gun to become separated!
Will: OK. Got it. Ed: Understood!
Lin: You seem like a fast learner. I hope that translates to battlefield success. Feel free to visit the war room anytime. Now get out there and do good. Lin: You're a fast learner. Now let's see you put it into practice on the battlefield. Come and visit the Briefing Room again when you want more tips.

Chapter 03

US Europe
Lin: Oh. Hello again. I was wondering when you were going to drop by. Ahem. Welcome to the war room, the place to come for tactical advice and strategy. Lin: I was wondering when yo were going to drop by here. Welcome to the Briefing Room, the place to come for tips on tactics for the current battle.
Will: You're going to help me with this battle, right? I'm still kinda new at this... Ed: Tips on tactics? So you'll give me hints on how to defeat enemies and win battles?
Lin: Patience, grasshopper. All will become clear... There's a narrow pass through the mountains at the top of the map. Position a tank and artillery there, but watch out for the enemy artillery. Place your mechs in the mountains to make their attacks more effective. Lin: Be patient. All will become clear... At the top of the map, there's a thin pass through the mountains. Position a Tank and Mech Gun here and try to avoid the enemy Mech Gun. Use the mountainous terrain to make Bazooka unit attacks more effective.
Will: Got it. Ed: I've got it!
Lin: Are you sure? That's a lot to absorb. All right! Well, if you forget something, feel free to ask. I'm chock-full of helpful advice, so come back anytime. Lin: You're quite sure you understood? Well, in case you forget what I told you, feel free to come back again. Come and visit the Briefing Room again when you want more tips.

Chapter 04

US Europe
Will: Lin? Uh, I mean, sir? Hello? ...Lin, is that you? Ed: First Lieutenant Lin...?
The Beast: Gwar har har! Guess again, loser! Drakov: Har-har-har!!! Guess again!
Will: Eep! ...Wait, what are you doing here? Ed: It's you! What are you doing here?!
The Beast: Givin' tactical advice! What does it look like I'm doin'? Drakov: I'm here to give you advice, of course!
Will: You're giving me... Wait, is this a trick? Where's Lin? Ed: You?! Advice?! What do you really want?
The Beast: GWAR HAR HAR! So ya want yer mommy, huh? Well, tough beans! This is Beast country, and no one knows it better than me! So listen up! Drakov: Har-har-har!!! Prefer Lin would you? Well, tough! This is my turf, and no one knows it better than me. So listen up!
The Beast: If there's one thing I love, it's ambusing little chumps like you! So don't move without thinkin'! Use yer flares to see what's up ahead. And get foot soldiers into the mountains to give yerself a better view. Now do as I say! Drakov: Don't move without thinking first! Use flares to see what's up ahead. Use the terrain to your advantage, but watch out for hidden enemies! You'd better do as I say!
The Beast: Gwar har har! I'm The Beast, and I love me a good tactics session! Later, little man! Drakov: Har-har-har!!! Till next time!
Will: ...OK, that was kind of weird. Ed: ...Wait! Too late! He's gone...
