Yes, do the heroic defense tour twice a day and do all Daily Objectives for Bronzium Crates on all your planets. At HQ 8 you have access to 5 planets, join a level 50 squad and buy Orbital Reckoning -7 star and any other -3 star perk to relocate the world, do the tour, cancel the perks and do it again in next day at the same time.
Better if your squad regularly do wars, and you can get more desert/cold equipments, as well as frags for TX skin and old Elite units.
Drop medals to see if you can get easy/weak rivals in conflicts, play Events and Wars, and make heroic defenses and objectives until you have something good to use in your Armory -- Guard Reserve and Jet/Jump skins. Or fill your transports with +90 storms using forest/desert skins, and make an "attack of the clones" and see what you can get.
For those who start in the game, there are three steps that players must follow:
1) When you get HQ 5, stay there and max out your base. Have your units at the same level as your HQ or above for units you upgrade through frags - old and new Elite units. Then go to HQ 6 and build Armory.
2) Stay at HQ 6 and play for Armory until you unlock and upgrade all troops and turrets skins, and upgrade them to level 4, maybe 5, if possible level 6. It will take time but have patience.
3) Go to HQ 7 to unlock mercenaries and then jump to HQ 8 if you have all jets/jumps skins at good level and stay on HQ 8 until you reach the max for all Elite units and equipment for your HQ level or above. HQ 8 is the best level to play Events. Enjoy.
Then you can move on, at least you will have high level skins.
And always check the Forum to know what is coming. There are a Naval Event and a Jet/Jump conflict for the next weeks. Prepare your attack and join.
