Antanjyl
Come into the map with your Opinion Leader's unit classified as High Sky. Send them directly east to the side of the screen, and then wait to see if a flying unit comes after you. If they do not appear, they will capture your home base, causing the game to return to the map select area (big bite of Reputation Meter gone). If they chase you, fly north and then east until a second enemy unit takes your home base. Repeat these steps until your Reputation is at 1/4 full (at the absolute most) to completely empty.
