Yuzhong fucked everything up with this map right before release, so I've written a new solution. The video should reflect this, and both parts should be entirely updated to work in EN for now. -Miyako
This is a puzzle map, so watching the video may be more clear than following the notes, as the movements can get a bit confusing with all the swaps required. Either way, you may want to cross-reference it just to make the map less painful. The mechanics of the map won't be explained here, but every swap made is necessary, even if it seems redundant, just due to the way nodes become accessible or inaccessible based on movement in this map. The Echelon you select to swap with matters, so if you get stuck somehow, make sure it's the same as the video.
I'll be referring to the echelons by numbers here, to make it simpler to give directions. If you can, try to match your echelons to be the same to make it simpler.
Deploy Echelon 1 on the Command Post, and Echelon 2 on the Heliport.
On turn one, move Echelon 1 to the right, then move Echelon 2 to the right twice. Deploy Echelon 3 on the Heliport and end turn.
On turn two, move Echelon 2 up, then move Echelon 3 to the right twice. Deploy Echelon 4 on the Heliport. Swap Echelon 3 with Echelon 2, then move Echelon 1 to the right and end turn.
On turn three, move Echelon 4 to the right, then swap Echelon 4 with Echelon 2. Move Echelon 3 to the right. Swap Echelon 2 with Echelon 4, then move Echelon 2 to the right. Swap Echelon 2 with Echelon 3, then move Echelon 1 to the right. Move Echelon 4 to the right, then swap Echelon 4 and Echelon 3. Swap Echelon 4 again with Echelon 2, then Swap Echelon 4 another time with Echelon 1. Swap Echelon 4 and Echelon 1 yet again, returning them to their previous positions. Move Echelon 3 left and end the turn.
On turn four, move Echelon 3 to the right, then move Echelon 1 up. Swap Echelon 2 and Echelon 4, then swap Echelon 2 and Echelon 4 another time to put them back where they were. Move Echelon 4 up. Swap Echelon 2 and Echelon 3, then move Echelon 3 up. Swap Echelon 3 and Echelon 4, then swap Echelon 3 and Echelon 4 again to put them where they were. Select Echelon 1 and swap it with Echelon 4, then move Echelon 4 right onto the enemy Command Post and end the turn to complete the map.
