Advanced 3 - Against All Odds

Any questions, tips, or cool solutions to the tactical puzzels
Tue Jul 28, 2015 3:51 pm

  • Can anyone help me with Advanced 3 puzzle ("Against All Odds") where the goal is to "Maintain control of Kyburz". I know that it has something to do with getting my Inspector to Kyburz so that he can recharge the shields before the sub with the Revered Elder arrives, but no matter what I do I can't get him there in time.

    What am I missing?! Thanks!

  • The inspector is certainly the obvious first choice. But have you considered the Inspector might have been placed into the scenario for misdirection?

  • None of the other specialists have a combat priority low enough to defeat the revered elder, and without a specialist I can't beat her 55 subs.

    How about another hint :)

  • The combat priority system is applied to all specialists that are present in the combat. So you are correct to assume that the only specialist that would do anything in the combat is the martyr, which is not available. However, are there any other specialists that would affect the outcome of the battle through a global effect that they provide?

    I know that’s not exactly clear, but it’s as close as I can get without telling you the answer :P

  • I already tried upgrading the Lieutenant to a General so that he destroys 10 drillers. That still leaves me with a 14 driller deficit. None of the current hiring options impact combat strength and none of the next hire options have a global effect. At this point I'm fine with you telling me the answer :lol:

  • Ignoring the first sub for a minute, have you got a plan for how you are dealing with the 2nd incoming sub?

  • If I could somehow survive the revered elder sub, my plan would be to take my pirate and move him to Kyburz. Right after the first sub hits but before the second does my Queen spawns another specialist. I would get the saboteur, combine him with my pirate, then send him to the second sub, which should redirect him to Vaccarino.

    All of that assumes that I can survive the revered elder sub...

  • You are so close to the answer it's not funny :P

    I'll send you a PM so it's not written in here.

  • Thanks man, I finally got it. I sent you a PM back with a question on the final puzzle (Kobayashi Maru). Would appreciate the help! :D
