Frequently Asked Questions

What is the goal/purpose of the game?
Build a strong base with good resources. Build a strong army of Commanders and units. Invade and attack rivals, gain bases (up to 10), move towards the center of the map

List of Buildings and what they do:
Factory – “trains” builds units
Research Lab – Unlocks and upgrades units
Warehouse – increases resource storage
Oil Derrick – Oil resource
Iron Mine – Iron resource
Uranium Drill – Uranium resource
Titanium Mine – Titanium resource
Refinery – Fuel resource
Trading Center – Cash resource

How do I build buildings?
Click on the hex where you would like to place the building. Click on the Build button at the bottom of the screen, and choose from the buildings available for that spot. Placing a resources building on top of a raw mineral spot will *double*that building’s output.

Can I build one building while I upgrade another?
You can construct, upgrade or demolish only one building at a time per base. However you can repair one building while constructing/upgrading another in the same base.

How do I build another base/outpost?
Players can have a total of nine Outposts (and one Homebase). Base cores are required in order to begin construction.

What are base cores and what do they do?
Base cores are necessary in order to build a new base. Base Power Cores are required for the first three bases (1, 5, 15). Base Fusion Cores are required for the second three bases (5, 15, 25) and Base Plasma Core are required for the final three bases (10, 25, 45). When you make a new outpost, the base core is not consumed; they are only required to begin construction.
Base Cores are randomly dropped when raiding bases, both from other players and NPCs. They can also be purchased from the in-game store under the Items tab.

What are commanders used for?
Commanders level as you do, via xp earned during play. You need commanders to move your units around the map, in order to attack and invade other bases.

Can I lose my commanders?
No, your commanders are indestructible. They do run on energy though, and therefore may not be available for every engagement, depending on when you last used them.

How fast do commanders regenerate energy?
Commanders regenerate 1 energy every 6 hours, to a maximum of 10 energy.

What is Star Power and what does it do?
More star power means larger increases commander’s stats when leveling up. Players can choose to have one commander absorb the other commanders by selecting Menu->Commanders->Fusion->Absorb. This action will increase that commander's star power . Also, fusing two of the same commanders together will increase that commander’s maximum star power capacity.

How do I fuse commanders?
You can only fuse the same commander with itself, ie Commander 1 with Commander 1. When you fuse, both the level and the tier increase. Ex: Midnight( level 1, tier 1) fused with Midnight( level 1, tier 1) will give you Midnight( level 2, tier 2) which reads as Level 2/20, previously Level 1/10.

How do I train a unit?
First, you need to research the unit in order to unlock it for building. Next, go to Factory and train that unit. You can train up to 100 units at a time. It will cost more, and take longer, the more you do at once.

How do I scout?
To scout you need stealth units, such as the Stealth Drone. These can be unlocked in the Research Lab and trained in the Factory.

How do I attack or capture another base?
Select a hex in the enemy base. Choose “Attack”, and select which of your bases to attack from. Create a New Army or select an available Army Template. Choose a Commander to lead it, and hit Send.

Why join an alliance?
Allies can reinforce your cities, sending troops for assistance. They can also send you resources.

How do I join an alliance, or create one of my own?
Go to the Menu in the bottom right corner of your screen, then to the Alliance screen. The “Join Alliance” tab gives you a list of alliances to join. Select one and tap the “Request to Join” button. If you’d rather create your own, go to the “Create Alliance” tab; fill in a name and description, then tap on the “Create Alliance” button.

What are attack points?
Attack points are earned during PVP. They are determined by the value of the player unit defeated.

Why am I not getting any attack points?
Only attack against other players will contribute to attack points. Attacking NPCs does not give attack points, nor does defending other attacks.
