Sorry, I need to get better at looking at who's posting. You are a veteran, so you know the drill. I know what you mean about starting a new base and resetting the expectations. It's also changed a little from what I am seeing. When we got to level 5, the resources went from 4k to 5k per base, to 100K to 1M per base. That's a weird jump. I would almost recommend new players spend the $10.00 or so in crystals to buy your way from level 4 to level 5 and save a huge amount of time. At level 5, we now have a quick route to level 8 if the resources stay at this level. More than we need and the bonus is the walls are so much cheaper now than the first time we went through this.
Squad Level: 50
We are always looking for active players. We have a squad of 20+ members, and we war at least once a week. We have maxed out our Perks. We like helping new players, so all players are welcome!
