Research and Resources
To conduct research in game, you mainly need two resources: These two resources are Credit and Research Points. You can obtain Credits through refineries, raiding other people’s camps, or purchase them.
For the research points, the only way for you to obtain the research points is through raiding other people’s bases. You cannot produce the research points nor purchase them. You have to get them through constant combat. You can get more research points by taking out higher defended bases. Meaning that the more units are defending one specific base, the more research points that you will get. However, by defeating the construction yard, you will obtain the full amount of research points as if you destroyed all the defending units.
Research Strategy and Progression
