Except that apparently you can finish the Selvaria mission in a single turn. I haven't tried it yet, but i've read on other forums that a smoke round + snipers can kill Selvaria in the very first turn. If I can pull myself away from BlazBlue maybe I'll test it out.

Although I usually prefer the method of systematically making my way to the top. More fun.

Alicia!Rush can finish it in one turn too. Snipers + Smoke round is just cheese.

Besides, you can get an A-rank on that mission even clearing every single enemy off the map.

How does smoke round and snipe work? I'm not quite seeing the trick here.

Smoke round so Selvaria can't kill your sniper in the <1sec it would normally take if there was no smoke round. Then just sniper her from inside/through the smoke.

Wow, I would have thought that Selvaria could evade well.

How easy is it to set up that kill?

I assume it's pretty easy. I haven't actually tried it yet, but read of that strategy multiple times on the gamefaqs forums.

Being in the smoke is like sneaking up from behind. You can only use one sniper for one shot though, any further shots will be evaded regardless if you're in the smoke, so you'll need 3 snipers.

I forgot if any orders were needed but I did try this and it works.

That being said, killing Selvaria is not the only thing you have to do to win the mission, right?

Nope, that is all you have to do to win.

I always found laying a smoke round and driving right up to her with the Edelweiss and giving her an 88mm surprise in the face was the best tactic. It'd nearly kill her every time and a scout could finish her off with a couple of head shots (undodgeable shot works wonders).

I was basing difficulty off of my first and only time playing through the game, so that strategy doesn't count.

Well, just beat the game again on my clear file and it was just as fun, if not more so, the second time around. I still can't believe what a great game this was. Simply amazing.

Finally, being OCD and all, I can allow myself to tackle the DLCs. Edy Detachment stuff first, I guess.

EDIT: Ya know what ticks me off? I wish you could view the the post-war bios of the main supporting characters without having to view the credits every time. I am not a slow reader, but I think the post-war bios go by too quickly.

Not for the main supporting characters like Captain Varrot, Largo, Rosie, etc. It only shows up to the entry you get after completing their side story or getting up to the final chapter.

I think it's more appropiate to keep discussions about the first game (PS3) and second game (PSP) seperate, so I spawned off the posts about the second game to a new thread:

Where do you fire the smoke round? At Selvaria? Or on your own snipers?

I found the time just then to play the first half of Chapter 15. That took a lot longer than I thought. It wasn't until later that I found out that the gatling bunkers could reach quite far, and it took some time to extricate my guys out of the line of fire.

Drop the smoke round just infront of where you start. You may also want to move Edelweiss to the front right, just outside the smoke, for a bit of cover from the other tanks and Selvaria herself. You'll have to edge them out of the smoke to be able to make out Selvaria's outline, but move a bit too far and you'll be under fire. Edelweiss can reduce the damage while figuring out the right spot/distance.

Finally did the Edy Detachment DLC tonight. Took me a couple hours but I got the A rank finally. I watched the three alternate endings on YouTube just now. I definitely prefer the A rank ending over all the others if only because it's the A rank. Pretty cute.

I just don't get the infatuation with Edy. Her character isn't that good. Her usefulness in battle is shaky at best. The best part of that extra chapter was getting to see Marina and Lynn get some screen time.

Next up, the Selvaria missions. Probably won't try those for a week until I get back from Connecticut.

Edy's popularity in Japan is due to her tsundere personality. She's definitely not the most popular non-main character in NA (that honor probably goes to Marina), but she's the most popular in Japan.
