You will start the game with a peace shield that will last 6 days. With the shield active you can attack the renegades but if you attack other players you will lose the remaining shield. As I have mentioned on General Hints and Tips, you will earn some achievements while doing the tutorial but first when the game starts you will automatically log on your Xbox Live account and you will earn the first achievement, easy:
Now in the tutorial follow the instructions and build your first (believe me you will build many more) unit factory and grab another achievement:
This is a War game so it’s impossible to make war without a commander-in-chief. The game has a total of 6 commanders but you will only choose 5 to fight against others. This is because J. Trasher is the commander responsible to defend your base. After every battle against renegades you will earn some pieces of equipment. The better results come after you defeat renegades higher than level 10. You can use some of this equipment to make J. Trasher stronger. All other 5 have unique abilities, but none of them are really better than other. As you make progress in the game you will unlock others and as your army grows and you do all command centers upgrades you will able to use all 5 commanders to gather resources or attack renegades and other players. If you aim only to unlock all achievements at one time you unlock the last one you still have only 3 available.
Follow more instructions and unlock your first commander for another achievement:
Well, we need to do some upgrades on the Headquarters and you will need to do this to reach level 16 if you aim to complete this game, but for now do it once for another achievement:
For the next achievement you have to join a Faction. You can select a lot of open factions or build your own but it’s much better to select one available with more people and also more resources. You can leave a faction and join another if you want, but bear in mind that you can work with others to improve all faction resources and this will make your life a lot easier than playing alone. As long as you are in a faction, you will earn a lot of resources medals and some boosts, use this to your advantage. Still in the tutorial select one of any available to earn the next achievement:
On the Faction Tab you can see your progress towards the faction. Always help on the Research tab. If you do this you will help to improve all the resources for the entire faction but also for your base. There’s a shop that you can buy items with the coins earned while helping your faction.
Again, as I have mention I’m playing on Portuguese language and haven’t faced any bugs / issues because of the language. For the next achievement you have to build a Vault. This will protect some of your resources if other players attack your base. For this, finish the tutorial and upgrade your Headquarters to level 4 and when it’s done you will find the Vault in the Build Tab. As soon the construction has finished you will earn another achievement:
As your base grows you will need more energy to keep then working. You can click the Edit Tab to better suit your buildings and also for create some Roads. All the energy from your Power Relay is distributed by roads and all your buildings must be connected to the roads. All buildings without power will be displayed in black and if you check the Edit Tab you can see the warning at right side.
As you have learned on tutorial, you can send your army to gather resources. For the next achievement you have to gather some Oil. In the picture below you can see the oil and metal deposits:
I don’t know if the achievement description is wrong but it says that you need 2000 Oil but I have gathered 10x this number before earning this. You will do this a lot and when the game counts that you already have the required Oil you will earn:
Your Power Relay can be overloaded if you have Power Cells to use. There are 3 kinds of power cells: Military are purple color, Production is green color and Utility has an orange color. The power cells have unique aspects but all of them will decrease the power relay range by -3.
For the next two achievements you can work together since they are about a battle. You have to destroy 3000 units but the game doesn’t tell if they must be from enemy players or NPC (renegades). Anyway, as you will see on the World Map there’s some renegade’s army and they appear like a miniature truck or airplane and what level they are. If you click once you can see some details about their power and what rewards you earn if defeat then likes the picture below:
If your commander is available to fight click to attack and your army will move on to the renegade position and start a battle. You can click again on the fight icon but it’s not necessary and as soon you defeat any renegade level 1 you will earn another achievement:
If you weren’t attacked by other players yet, probably you will not earn this on the first battle against renegades. So build more units and fight again against level 1's and after defeating the second one you will be able to select to fight against level 2. You can’t fight against a renegade with level 4 if you don’t beat the lower levels first. You also can earn some good stuff in these battles, including Intel for Black Ops. When the game counts that you have destroyed 3000 units you will earn:
Nice!! If you came up here you have only 1 achievement left and now you will spend a lot of time . As you may noticed by now, to upgrade your garrisons other building requirements must be met. For the next achievement you have to gather some Thorium but the problem is it’s only available when your Headquarters reaches level 16. In the Picture below you can see polymer and thorium resources:
In the first 12 levels you will do all the upgrades easily enough but the next 4 will be a pain since you need many more resources. As you have noticed, after upgrading your headquarters you always have to upgrade other buildings first before another headquarters upgrade. You can use all the boosters that you have earned doing missions, but for now it is better to gather more resources and be prepared for the next upgrade. Keep gathering more resources and if you have the second queue available to work on 2 building at same time use it and work on the other buildings like oil refinery, metal extractor, chemical plant and all the others. Do the available Black Ops and try to defeat some renegades for more boosters. Always use Peace Shield if someone tries to attack you and do some research at Research Institute. Here you can improve your Offense, Defense, Economy and Development.
To upgrade your HQ to level 13, after all requirements you will need these resources: 1.25M Metal, 1.25M Oil, 450K Polymer and 20 hours to finish the upgrade.
Before upgrading the HQ to level 14, you will need Garage, Unit Factory and Chemical Factory at level 13. After all upgrades you will need these resources: 1.90M Metal, 1.90M Oil, 1.1M Polymer and 1 day and 2 hours to finish.
Again for level 15 do the required upgrades then you will need these resources: 2.90M Metal, 2.90M Oil, 1.40M Polymer and 1 day and 9 hours to finish.
The last level required for the achievement is in front of you but you still need to do some upgrades if you haven't yet, then you will need these resources: 4.20M Metal, 4.20M Oil, 2.10M Polymer and 1 day 18 hours to finish.
As soon your headquarters reaches level 16, you will be able to build a structure to produce some Thorium but for the achievement you have to gather it from the world deposits. Again, when the game counts that you already have gathered the required Thorium you will earn the last achievement:
Congratulations on completing another game .
