2nd rescue mission

WTF

whoever thought this up is hopefully going to rot in hell for the rest of eternity. Seriously, you have to rescure 100% of the people (no problem) and have a maximum destruction rate of 10% or less for an A-rank.

Here comes the kicker. The second mission takes place in town 2 where you previously fought Tempest. The shit he destroys counts towards the 10%. Problem his, no matter what I do or how I act, after sending the first few fireballs he ALWAYS does an attack that destroy the exact six buildings beneath him.

My best rank on the 2nd rescue mission is B with 19% buildings destroyd. I counted. 10 buildings. So if my math is correct and the logic of the game is not some made up bullshit, I only can have a maximum of 5 buildings in that area destroyed. And even if the 6 buildings somehow accumulate only 9.8% than there is still the problem of finishing the mission without any extra destruction. And since there are 6 squads the possibility of that is so low that I'm not even sure I could pull it off. Not without some seriously bullshit luck.

It's the only real problem in the whole collection and I hate it more and more.

If somebody can come up with a good solution, I will thank you forever. But even though the game is 11 years old, I couldn't find one helpful guide on how to get the A-rank on that mission. It is driving me insane.

EDIT: Ok, I now have a save file with only the 6 buildings destroyed. After I get the A-rank on the first rescue mission (for the thrid time now >.>) I will try my hardest to see, if this is even possible with the six buildings. I managed no extra destruction last time but I had 8 destroyed buildings from the Tempest fight. Will see how it goes.

I've now spent more time doing this than on the rest of the game. Not even ZoE2 was this hard to SS.

EDIT 2: Ok, I've done and still only 11,7% This shit is pissing me off. Until someone finds a way to do it, I keep my hands off the game so I won't go insane. This is such horrible game design.

I didn't have any real problems with the game at all. EXCEPT FOR THIS! I'm pulling my hair out trying to figure out how to get past the second rescue mission. I can get past the first one fine, but I can't seem to get anything below 20.8% damage.

Any tips that you have, let me know, because I'm going to go bald if I keep playing this game.

This isn't as hard as it seems. A good strategy is to stick close to Tempest in his first form so he just does that fire spray attack that doesn't seem to hurt the buildings. In his second form, just stay in the river area and keep him faced away from the buildings. After the battle, leave the area right away so you don't have to fight the other frames and risk damaging more buildings. Hope this helps!
