Contraband question

Post#1 » Fri Nov 23, 2018 9:03 am

Do the squad perks which increase contraband generation work while your base is just sitting there or does it only apply to contraband received or captured?

Diablogrunt - The Squad Perks which increase Contraband Generation - like Black Market Buyer - will increase the amount of Image Contraband Generated based upon the Level of the Perk and the Level of the Contraband Trade Port for a period of 12 hours after which it requires 16 hours to cool down before being used again.

⇨ IMPORTANT: This Squad Perk does NOT effect the amount of Contraband received as a result of a PvP Win nor the amount received in a Reward Crate.

Hope that answers your question.

So this does not affect the contraband in the storage facility? It appears it is going to take months to accumulate enough contraband to do anything useful - I'm only at level 6.

At level 6, the only way to get CB is to attack other bases or get it in crates. You don't get to build a CB tradeport until level 7. Finishing UC is a good way to get decent-sized chunks. Check the crate details in the current conflict to see what you get (it won't be enough to buy a deka, though).

Go to a planet with dev bases-with luck you may find some that are loaded with CB. Otherwise, it can be difficult to get a deka unlocked at level 6.

Don't rush contraband. In time, you will be rolling in it. Its rarity at the lower levels is a ploy to get you to crystal or to play like a madman. Just play and upgrade at a normal pace, and you'll soon have way more than you need.

I wish I had known this when I was at L6... basically just ignore CB until you're L7 or 8. Once you get to L9, you'll start hitting the maga-loot whale bases with as much as 300,000 CB in them.

Thanks so much - I have moved the CB storage out of my base to a corner and will not move it back until I hit level 7 which is going to be quite a while yet. This was my first character and I got way too aggressive in upgrading my HQ without first getting all the other base stuff upgraded. I didn't know any better at the time. Once I got into a squad I found out about all the mistakes I made. So now I am having to upgrade all the various stuff which takes a long time even with my 4 droids.
