All of these guys are meeting for the first time, so no prior experience in dealing with a certain enemy i.e. Tou knowing Reiou likes to use pincers or Ouki fighting Houken.
In character: Characters are in character except when it severely compromises team synergy i.e. Houken wanting to challenge any strong general on his team. However, if it's their strategy/tactical quirk, like Ousen's refusal to straight up fight a competent opponent or Kanki not keeping his allies informed of his moves during battle, they keep it.
Synergy: Characters that have canon synergy/familiarity keep it, like Hakurei and Kouyoku or Kaine and Futei.
Elites: elites can do independent actions but they cannot be assigned to another character. You can have Karin's elites assist Bajio in an objective but he cannot lead them.
Knowledge: No knowledge since they are meeting for the first time
Burning to restricted to Raido and Zenou only
Nord is defending and Zentos is attacking. Treat those buildings like they don't exist but the wooden palisade walls in front of each deployment area are still there. They can be knocked down by regular soldiers with some effort. The left side has forests and narrow swamps while the right side is more open.
