Suggestions?.

mkenobi - I have noted a common misconception.

Most don't want to Upgrade 'Sonics" for various reason, mostly due to no increase in Damage (which is good) - BUT - keep in mind that you are not upgrading "Sonic" but in-fact Upgrading the "Turret Platform" upon which a "Turret" is placed.

PUT SIMPLY - Go ahead and Upgrade the Turret regardless of what it is currently configured as - Sonic, Burst, Rocket, etc., because later you will have the option to SWAP to new Turret Type and perhaps you might want to Swap a Prestige Sonic Turret to a Prestige Burst or Prestige Rocket but if you did not Upgrade the Sonic Turret earlier then you would need to do 2 Actions - Swap + Upgrade - instead of only 1 Action - Swap - if you simply just upgrade all "Turret Platforms".

THAT SAID... IT IS TRUE - that the costs in both Time / Alloy are more at Prestige Level so if you want to Swap first than Upgrade to Prestige that is a valid "Upgrade Strategy".

:arrow: Hope you understand better...

2 days to swap Level 10 turrets. 3 days to swap Prestige turrets. Not a big problem, but the fact you can swap 5 turrets at 10 at the same time, and only one at Level 11. But the "1 action Vs. 2 Actions" argument is pretty valid. Thank you, DS.

I won't change any of my Prestige Bursts again unless they nerf the turrets like they did with Rapids. I'll have 10 Sonics tomorrow, and the Prestige Droid will be available in 3 days for another upgrade.

The natural order of the things is start upgrading all Sonics to Prestige. Even if they don't get any extra damage I believe Sonics at Level 10 are the best turrets against every kind of unit now.

To avoid that kind of problems, I use a turret mix : burst - rockets - sonics. I did this before upgrading them all at a Prestige level. So far I have not needed to have to modify them.
My droid is still busy upgrading my credits markets to Prestige .. :mrgreen:

I am slowly upgrading all of my turrets (only 6 more to go), though if either the MTTs or Wookie Wagons/ITTs start to become more popular, I will regret upgrading them as it would take 2+ months to change all of the bursts over to rockets. It would also take 2+ months to research the Rocket skins... After upgrading your turrets to Prestige you need to commit 2.5 months to change them all to test a new configuration and if it does not work, another 2.5 months to change back. Just think, one game balance tweak, or new unit and we may all have to spend up to 2.5 months to convert all of our turrets! (I still think that turret conversions should happen immediately and that you should be able to convert all of them with one full load of alloy. That way you could actually change your turret config before a HD, since the text in the HD screen suggests that you do so for different HD troop configs.)

Burst Turret P level #18 completed
Sonic Turret P level #4 is in progress

then 4x credit markets, 4x alloy refineries, 2x credit storage, 2x alloy storage, ...

... then the droid will be thinking about the poor decisions he's made during his short existence and wondering why Skippy the Jedi Droid was able to find a meaningful way to end his own life and he cannot.

You mean 6x credit markets and alloy refineries?
