May Day Map Size: Medium
Map Terrain: Snow/Urban
Recommended Side: Either
Players: 2
Author: erikmcfar
General Overview
May Day is a favourite of some player because of lots of oil derricks and lots of ore so there is a chance of huge armies which are real fun. May Day is a two player map with the players starting on the top or bottom sides of a river that separates the two sides, there is a bridge that is reparable, but it starts out destroyed. On each side the map is littered with garrisonable buildings. The rivers are big enough to move naval units through, however it is a tight fit.

Tech Buildings
There is no shortage of tech buildings on May Day. A total of 16 Oil derricks(8 on each side of the river), 2 airports and 2 hospitals(one on each side). Note: The player starting in the bottom position is at a severe disadvantage, because four of there tech buildings start behind a wall that requires a tank or something like that to blow it up before you can send your engineers in.(I don't know if WW just messed up or what).

Team Selection
This map is well balanced, there are several key buildings to help stop and early rush, so I have decided that either side is a good selection for this map.

Allies:

I would suggest using America on this map because there are several buildings to garrison near enemy positions which can help cut off your opponents access to ore or your base or his base. Korea is also good because you can quickly take out any building or unit that stands in your way. France is good to help with defense or attack. Germany and Great Britain aren't really effective on this map so I would avoid using them.
Soviets:
Iraq is the best overall and the best for this map as usual, then I would recommend Russia against an allied opponent, and then Libya and Cuba against a soviet opponent.
Economy
Each side has a huge ore cache relatively near the starting position.

Walkthrough

Allies:

Start by building power plant, barracks, and refinery. After building a barracks build a few dogs for scouting and a about four engineers and capture the oil derricks near your base and also build a GI or two and garrison a key building or two, if you can try to garrison a building a near your opponents base to put pressure on him early. Then build a war factory and then an AFC and another refinery, sell the second refinery. After the war factory build one miner and three tanks. If you are playing an allied player you might want to build one patriot derrick system in case of a rocketeer rush, otherwise don't bother. You need to capture the remaining tech buildings in your area, and garrison key buildings. You should be raking in the cash, build a battle lab and another refinery nearest the ore field so it doesn't take so long to come back. Start churning out tanks and build naval units and harass enemy buildings in range. Then take out any assets your opponent has, tech buildings or units, and after you tie up all the loose ends go for your opponents throat and destroy his army and base.
Soviets:
Start by building the usual, pp, barracks, and refinery. After building a barracks build a few dogs and send them scouting, also build a handful of conscripts and garrison a key building or two, if you can try to garrison a building a near your opponents base to put pressure on him early. Then build a war factory and then another refinery, sell the second refinery. After the war factory build one miner and three tanks. If you are playing an allied player you might want to build one flack cannon in case of a rocketeer rush, otherwise don't bother. After you finish with your three rhino's immediately send them to take out your enemies harvesters or oil derricks, but be careful of garrisoned buildings. You should have a fairly decent economy at this point, build a radar if need be and another refinery nearest the ore field so it doesn't take so long to come back. Start churning out tanks. Then take out any assets your opponent has, tech buildings or units, and after you eliminate any units roaming around the map, send you army and destroy his army and his base.

I hope this improves your game on May Day.
