Getting the most out of each level
It's quite simple really. If you want to gain more points/powerups etc on each level, as soon as the level begins, order the rest of the troops to simply defend their nearest base rather than attacking (try to make sure that the main camp is defended, by either defending the main camp itself, or defending bases which are in the immediate path to the main camp). This will ensure that only attacking enemy generals will be attacked by anybody other than yourself, (and none of these will be killed since they will retreat, if weakened too much, to a nearby base) and will also ensure that no bases get taken out, leaving all the pointage for your beautiful self.
(for those who don't know) You issue orders to each unit by going into the start menu (during a battle), selecting unit info, and selecting an allied unit, then a list of possible orders will come up, and you select "aid base" then select the base which you wish that unit to aid, and the unit should go and aid that base.
P.S. Sometimes it doesn't work right away, but after a minute or so, if the unit has not moved, simply repeat the order, and it usually works.
