Specialists 5 - Global Abilities

Any questions, tips, or cool solutions to the tactical puzzels

  • I got the Beta on October 13th, but until yesterday I wasn't able to test it "thoroughly".

    So far, I've completed all the puzzles except 5:

    Specialists 5 - Intermediate - Global Abilities

    **I'm required to promote "in a future", but I get a Pop-up saying that "hiring or promoting in the future is not yet implemented (shame on them)". Does this make this mission impossible? I'm able to lose control of Vintgar and regain it, but it doesn't count as "victory"... Solved! thanks to solid fuel

    Winning 3 - Intermediate - Losing a Mine

    **Haven't tested it that much, but I seem to be unable to advance in any direction. I think I've tried everything, but maybe there's "that step" that I'm missing. There's only one specialist that could "make HINT useful", but I don't seem to be able to arrive in time... EDIT: Solved it too... apparently related to the same problem...

    Advanced 2 - Advanced (duh) - The fastest way from A to B

    No matter what I try, I don't seem to be able to reach the mine under the 24h mark. Anything not in Kyburz arrives too late EDIT: Oh gawd... apparently THAT was the problem... 1 simple "misread information"...

    Advanced 3 - Advanced - Against all Odds

    **Apparently same problem as the "Specialist 5" test. I want to promote/hire "in a future", but I get that popup. I've read people saying they solved it, but I don't seem to be able to stop the incoming subs on time.

    Kobayashi Maru - Advanced - A Test of Character

    **Only gave it a quick glance, and been fiddling with it for a while, but I seem unable to get enough specialists/drillers to stop all the subs on time... but I think I might have something.

    I don't want to start playing online until I can get all the missions sorted out, but I'd appreciate a hint.

    Thanks in advance

  • For specialist 5 just scrub time forward 10 minutes and the promotion goes into effect.

  • Thanks! actually never tried to "go forward 10 minutes" WHILE the promotion was still pending... shame on me for thinking too much and not reading enough >.<

  • Hi,

    I don't know what I'm doing wrong but I cant finish this Puzzle :D
    Can someone give me some hints how to solve it?

    Also is "loosing the control of Vintgar" a part of the solution ? (Add then capturing it back?

  • While trying to solve this puzzle, I noticed even the hint tells you to promote a unit... While doing it using the time machine an error occurs and a little alert pings saying that sheduled promotions are not implemented right now... So, is it still solvable?

  • Yes, it's solvable. Have you picked the right hire and/or promotion? (don't want to give anything away for other players here)

    In this puzzle when you've picked the right hire/promotion action, the game should accept your solution and turn the objective green. Without the need to confirm or finalize it.

    In general (online) gameplay you can simply turn the time wheel 10 minutes into the future to see the new hire/promotion. This way, by not finalizing it, you can still cancel the order to hire/upgrade if you want to change strategies.

    Are you sure you picked the right specialist hire/promotion?
