Erepublik day 1839
QUOTE OF THE DAY
Economic growth without social progress lets the great majority of people remain in poverty, while a privileged few reap the benefits of rising abundance.
John F. Kennedy (1917-1963) Thirty-fifth President of the USA
Alright all my newbs…. Im a little disappointed in the response I received with questions. If you are anything like I was and (still am) there are a lot of little things that I wish had known starting the game out. So PLEASE if you want to know how something works PM me with your questions.
Earlier we learned some abbreviations regarding erepublik language. Today we will be discussing BH ( battle hero awards.. and the opportunity you have as a newbie.
First we must discuss what is more important….. STRENGTH vs. MILTARY RANK
You may find differing opinions on which is more important… But Strength is very valuable.
Strength… is built each day by training. You can pay gold to train at other facilities but your gold is better spent upgrading the free facility in my opinion.
You must log in everyday and train to get strength built fast. You don’t have to fight everyday.
Military Rank… is built by fighting everyday. The more enemies you kill the more rank points you receive. Rank points will increase your rank and eventually your player level.
Your player level is located right next to your avatar in the upper left corner of the page.
THE “DO” ( Daily Order)DOES NOT HAVE TO BE DONE EVERYDAY…
Now I say this with hesitation… depending on what MU ( Military unit) you are in… you may be required to fight each day to receive supplies…. You must balance this
I would recommend only fighting a couple days a week… but work and train each and every day.
STRENGTH - will grow as you train with out your rank leveling up very much. The stronger you are the more damage you do in each fight and the less energy it takes to defeat your enemy. This means you can fight longer without replenishing. In addition you should be building food supplies since you wont be using as much and you will be increasing you “ Minutes until next restore”
"The stronger you are the more damage you do in each fight and the less energy it takes to defeat your enemy. This means you can fight longer without replenishing."
Not true. The game matches you against opponents of similar strength, as you gain strength you will face opponents with increasing strength too. Your strength is irrelevant in terms of energy consumption. A higher Quality weapon however will let you defeat opponents with less energy used up.
I believe though you will still be in division 1 and you should not run against too many D1 players with a ton of strength
This will allow you to fight longer in one sitting and not have to wait for the timer to replenish energy or use an energy bar.
What does all this mean…. Well your level determines what division you are in and the strength of your average opponent in each fight. From level 0-24 you will be in division one.
This division is much easier to take BH ( battle hero) awards in. this will earn you gold each time you do it.
Since gold is the precious commodity in this game and the currency that allows you to upgrade training facilties and companies… this is a useful strategy to obtain gold as a newbie.
(Wish this were explained to me early on )
So in summary train 2-3 days ( or more) for each day you fight… if you can, upgrade your training facility ASAP on the free one. This way each day you train you gain more strength.
Now Military Rank.. this does have its Pluses as well. You can earn 5 bazooka parts and an energy bar for each rank… these also gain you a 5% damage bonus for each rank up. These are all very valuable.. but in my opinion can be gained at a later time and can be gained easier with higher strength… if you continue to fight …fight ..fight( I know this can be fun) It will cause you to hit level 25 Too soon… be moved to division 2 as a fighter and you will be facing people with much more strength than you. Remember when you first fought in the game……you will be there again and it will drain your energy very fast.. for each kill.
Build strength stay as low as you can in rank…. Fight only once for every 2-3 days or more that you train… only fight enough to get DO ( or satisfy MU)
Now watch battles for low BH amounts and try to take them at low cost… next week I will discuss War and strategy on taking BH awards a little more in depth next week… but for now come in late and try not to get in pissing matches over BH with other players… I have won some BH awards for as little as 160k damage in division 1…. That’s 2 gold
So In summary you will have to ultimately decide what is more important to you … strength or military rank…. But my opinion is Strength rules early in the game… I know it can be a little more boring but the payoff is worth it…. You will earn much more gold as a newbie if this is executed early
The games new setup allows for very fast rank up until about level 20 and this can give a new player a false sense of success in the game..
TRAIN TRAIN TRAIN every day…. Upgrade training facitlity to 10 strenth a day I will cost you 20 gold for the first I believe… try to wait for sales or specials on these upgrades
The four Buildings have the same Upgrade cost:
From Q1 to Q2 costs 20 GOLD
From Q1 to Q3 costs 70 GOLD
From Q1 to Q4 costs 170 GOLD
From Q2 to Q3 costs 50 GOLD
From Q3 to Q4 costs 100 GOLD
Here is a useful link for more indepth info on training and cost of different levels of upgrades
Below are you levels for each division… you want to be totally prepared for division upgrade from 1 to 2
1st - 0-24; 2nd 25-29; 3rd - 30-36; 4th - 37-oo
