Is upgrading to HQ 8 as an Imperial player worth it?

Post#1 » Mon Oct 01, 2018 6:25 pm

I have the necessary alloy and I am a maxed out HQ 7.
I don’t know if it is better to sit at HQ 7 and enjoy the game or move up.

You get jumptroops at level 8, which is your main unit. I would upgrade to 8 just to get them. I would hesitate there for a while before jumping to 9.

You get jumps, Vader and the twerks... it's a bit of a game changer. So... either you park at level 7 if you enjoy it... or take the plunge to level 8, which is essentially where the next section of the game begins...

Then it'll just be rinse and repeat to prestige... nothing will change, just longer build, research and upgrade times... yawn.

I've been sitting at level 8 with my imp base for almost a year now. Level 7 was okay but not having jumps while attacking up was a notable disadvantage. I'd say go ahead with the upgrade but be prepared for all the changes that come with it. On a side note, given the latest positive changes in gameplay, I'm upgrading to level 9 since I maxed out 8.

Go to Level 8 if you have a good armory and most of basic units upgraded to 7, specially if you have all Jets/Jumps skins at level 3-4, and then keep HQ at Level 8 untill you are maxed out. Jumps/Jets are the best reason to upgrade to 8.

The problem is when you have a maxed out HQ 8 your rivals are most of the time Level 9 and 10, and this sucks. And it's really hard when you have to attack bases with LAAT/IDT traps, both Dekas, and maxed out Sonics if you don't have a good armory.

I kept my primary Rebel base on HQ 8 for almost one year, only when I was maxed out and all armory items for defense and attack at level 6-7, I upgraded to 9... Events are easy to play, Objectives are fast and simple, and HDs aren't tough at Level 8 if you use a HD layout, these are good reasons to keep at HQ 8 for so long.

I ALWAYS upgraded HQ AS SOON AS POSSIBLE...never regretted it...

This is a "King of Hill" game...attackers will ALWAYS be stronger (unless you make an effort to play vs the system...keeping medals low or such).

So...i prefer to get to L10...as there is no L11 i will NOT be attacked from above ;)
(This is no longer true ;)...but i got HQ upgrading to 11 as soon as i could)

AND...the effect of upgrading HQ was never that big...much more visible when you upgrade turrets OR get lots of medals...

Anyhow...your choice...i am in the game to use ALL POSSIBLE units and content...so no point on stopping at ANY LEVEL...
