Part 1: Advance through low levels, UPDATE: Added info: Shadow OPS : ways to Do!
Most of us are now thinking that the attack forces are too tough to counter. This is not the case, at reality, though. A base with good defences can defend yourself through Advanced platoons from low players, except Hackers, of course, or spam.
Basically, in the start of the game, you will receive a MG. Remember, the MG is useless, when got to 20, but a bunch of Level 5 MGs are good for you in event, grinding Tier C, and advance to get the Napalm Turret.
The napalm turret is the centre of your start of advanced defences. Normally, you should be a 25 or more to get Napalm, and with the Low event Xp cost, it is interestingly effective, but not at level 1. Normal players, at the time of equipping a Napalm, is 27-8, and the core has just started.
Now, you get two path to strengthen your defences: Upgrade walls or upgrade Turrets. But, before doing all these, I would Strongly suggest you to upgrade your Command Center to level 6 first, and The defence lab to 10. It is important to do so.
When you basically got to that level, you must be at least a 30. Well, typically, your defences are now a mix of Napalm, MG and Mortar, if you love Mortar.
Here's the intersting point: You shall directly upgrade your oil, metal, and thorium, massively until Level 32.
Here's my suggestion at
Command Center 4/5
Tech Center 7/8
Defence Lab 7/8
At least 10 DF Platforms built
Bunkers : LV2/3 *3, and have a mix of Watchtowers and The armed Bunker. You will be handy when defending a 20-24 at that time, at some cases, a 28
Hovertank/Elite Unlocked at that time through Shadow, which you may ask for help, or grind level 10s
Command Center: 5
Tech Center: 9
Defence Lab: 9
At this Academy level, you can start owning SFs
Level 27 through 30
Command Center: 5 -> 6
Defence Lab:9 ->10,
At level 30, you should have:
Command Center: Level 6
Defence Lab: 10, Napalm Unlocked, Level 5, AA Plasma Unlocked
With some SF, Napalm level 5/6
At level 30, you should be able to fend off some aggressors, if you have Hovertanks unlocked, and placed in a base , normally.
