This game is fairly entertaining, however, it is pretty stupid the opponents that it matches you against. As rank20, the NPCs i face are rank10-12, the people I face are 35+. NPCs are killed with zero effort outside of the rare doctor and that boss dude. If I dismiss a player who has been around to long, I get someone much higher in rank. So the best strategy is to save the player characters for a long while until I am ready to face them. Keeps me from playing more than 5 min a day because there is literally nothing todo but waste gold on troops trying bases I cannot beat.

For now focus on leveling your units. I agree matchmaking is stupid, I was trapped in the same duldrums. At least now I'm only hitting +5-7 levels instead of +6-10.

Yeah, I've been stuck Ina cycle of hitting a bunch of bases I can't touch, doing nothing for a week or two, finally clearing them all out and then starting the cycle over. I just wish there was something to do in the mean time

Think something witty and pretend it's written here.



So it seems that they just hit us with a graphics update for resource-related buildings, and gave LVL16 bases Jamie Hyneman throwing granades. Is the new troop type any good? (I'm stuck on LVL14, gemming it next time when it costs less than 400, though to get tank+medic-combo.)

Compared to zookas they're faster and have decent HP, so all your DPS doesn't die to one unlucky mortar shot/rocket barrage. The shots are really inaccurate though, hitting all over behind the target. Zookas are far better single target DPS, I can only see these guys being better for specific bases with everything clumped together so the splash helps.

A couple weeks ago I posted I'd hit a wall. Evenly-upgrading all my troops had severely limited my attacking power, and my HQ was too low for my level.
Thanks to some good advice from folks here, today my base looks like this:



Those are my tanks upgrading to lvl 7. Still a little behind, but leagues and leagues better than before I decided to focus on them. Now I can always farm the resources for whatever I need.
Basically if you're at that hump, there's hope if you just press a little further. Thanks thread!

Medkits feel underwhelming. Every other upgrade goes up by a % of the previous level, making their growth seem more substantial.

It scales pretty shittily. That said, I love Riflemen, and it's one more way to make GBE mitigate AOE damage, like letting you approach a rocket launcher head-on to get riflemen into its blind spot, then healing as they arrive to take fire from other rocket launchers.

Depends on the specific damages of the AOE and your RIflemen and stuff, but I have level 13-14ish, and it's not a bad use of armory time if you don't feel like raiding super hard.

Root your phone and install SCR Pro, record as you play.

If you have Lollipop, I believe that the latest version of SCR doesn't even need root, but can't record in game sounds (just microphone input).

If you are on iOS, get hosed!

Even if it's 15, you can probably swap some structures and still make a variant work. HTH!

Are there any other active task forces other than the full goonfleet? Otherwise are there any inactives I can take over for? I play regularly.

Probably, we only really get about 25-30 people go attack for ops. It's just hard to track, but I'll go kick someone with 0 Intel earned for the week.

E: kicked a few, if you got kicked and still play just ask for another invite.
