I think it may be more valuable to upgrade unit transports before SC, each get +4 UC, versus SC +2. Yes the +2 will improve your defense 6 instead of 5 x 7UC units, but having an extra 4UC in your loadout will be great for wars.

Also, can someone clarify, is the Strix upgraded by prestige droid only or by regular worker droids?

I agree, you get 10% more troops, that's the biggest and quickest bang for the buck, imo. I'd probably do research, then transports, and then worry about the other buildings.

I might even do transports first. Still have a few things I want to research to before starting on prestige unit upgrades.
I'm assuming since its nearly 2 weeks since prestige came out there will be many more prestige HQs in war, so will need the extra UC to get 3 uplinks, especially if they fast track their two extra turrets.

Thanks for the tips

wesman21 - Thanks for starting this Topic. I was thinking doing the same thing. I am sure the info presented so far and to be presented will help those soon to be or current "Newly Minted" Gold Prestige Base Commanders. :D

Well ... yeah, the recommendations are fine, but they did not include the Rax or the Fax at all.

I would think you would want one of these right away after the Research Center so that you can actually use researched troops. THEN go to the SC.

Midge - Could you define the Terms / Abbreviations "Rax" and "Fax" as I (and perhaps others) may not know what you are referring to.

Thanks! :D

Rax obviously refer to the barracks building, and likewise the Fax refers to the factory buildings.

In plural that can be shortened to: Barracks = Rax and Factories = Fax. simple.

… Now, if I had a dollar for every everyday word DeathStriker puts quotation marks on, I'd be full prestige 4 times over :) :)

One and a half days out till Prestige...
Good topic thread here.

It is a tough choice what to upgrade first (after the Strix Beacon I mean).
How many days will the Lab take? I was in such a hurry to start Prestige upgrading that I forgot to look. I think I read 5 days (which is a bargain compared to the usual upgrade times in SWC).
On the other hand, I really could use those 3 upgraded Transports in wars. 12 UC more is a lot and can mean the difference between victory and defeat, especially with Prestige bases coming out in droves in two days… And I have some L9-10 lab upgrades to perform on useful war stuff like top-notch Gammos as well.
While typing this (and shirking some administrative work I should be doing instead ;-) I think the best route for me will be Transports first while completing my last useful lab upgrades (i'll leave the Tie Bomber, IDT-ship and Med shuttle low level thanks).

On the other hand, some types of infantry get a heavy boost at prestige level...

Question, I think it has been posed before: The Strix Beacon, can it be repaired by regular droids?
If not it will be nearly useless in anything but wars...

I heard no one mention the two extra turrets. I know, they can de upgraded till 10 by regular droids but those will be strated on immediately as well. It looks like 4 of my 5 builder droids will be bsy for many weeks to come!

The Strix Beacon is upgraded and rearmed by regular worker droid.

That should clarify, once again.
