Finish the 100 turns allowed in any one campaign, but do not actually conquer China. There must be at least one area not under your control at the end of the 100th turn.

In historical mode, play as anyone's force except for Dong Zhuo. When the regional lords join up to fight Dong Zhuo, do not participate. The region lords will lose and Dong Zhuo will continue to rule the land. Eventually Lu Bu and Diao Chan will talk about betraying Dong Zhuo. An intermission sequence of Lu Bu fighting some of of Dong Zhuo's men will start. After this, Lu Bu becomes his own force.

To beat an officer the first thing to do is let him venture far in your territory then destroy all the base men at the top and the area that was blank or red will be blue. Then quickly rush down and kill the officer or officers if you did it in time your person will say enemy officer defeated instead of the officer retreating.
Office morale must be low for this to work.
If you wanna save time and win the level then secure the perimeter make all strongholds blue.Don`t rush strait to the enemy main camp.Cuz`officers will come and by the time you beat the 2nd one the 1st will be back onhis/her feet then you`ll have to beat like 5 officers around 3 times.
