    How do we get the xp? So say that if you destroyed the gun turret and few other building in the first wave and then hit end attack will you get the xp then or will it be when you have destroyed the base completely? Also is swag going to do another video?

    Air will come in waves, so you will have a gap between them. They will prevent people from just MT spamming.

    Ouch - so you can't destroy your their air completely in one shot, just have to defend your tanks... okie, Gatz and tanks it is then :)

    Nope, they get harder as you get more XP. We did this so lower to mid level players can get the XP needed for the low level prize without too much trouble but as you get more XP the air starts to kick in. The people competing for the Kondor or the top 20 bonus prize will be taking on the raptors and warhawks.

    It also means that as a high level player attacking a high level base you won't encounter raptors instantly and you will be able to evolve your AA strategy as you play.

    We is smart ;)

    a good way to defend is to put 3 hercules with rifle men on the 2 sides of your megas
    i think hellfires are basically useless due to low HP

    For me, that means that when Warhakws appear, go look for another base.

    Correct, you need to keep your units defended from waves of air. The gap between waves is reasonable, but if you ignore the air completely or do a bad job it could pile up.

    You can, you could take out all defenses and units but that won't leave much XP for them to take as the defensive buildings and units hold the majority of the XP

    The formula behind the damage>XP is complex, but hitting a level 20 base and killing it completely will net you around 100 > 120 XP, I got 180 from a single level 30. The XP depends on the damage you do and how many defenses and units the base has (how hard it is)

    Damage = XP, if you half damage a gun turret you get half the XP you would if you destroyed it. You get XP in real time, no need to finish off a base. Though I recommend you do clean up to get the max XP and force another one to spawn.

    You didn't understand my post. The difficulty of the air is based on YOUR XP. If you have a lot of XP it does not matter what base you attack, the air will find you :)

    In simple terms, the difficulty of the event increases as you progress through it. It's sort of cool in that the enemy are recognizing your skill and responding with better defenses.

    If it is based on the exp bar you have gathered, changing another base won't matter I think...

    You are wrong. A couple of gats or hercs could take down that air before it does more than 2 passes. Evolve your game son.

    Ah, I thought it was related to much you had gotten from the base.

    So, if you're running into Cobras, but then redeem like 1000 XP, you go back to Wing Drones?

    Your total event XP will have remained the same, but your "Balance" of spendable points will reduce. If you buy something, it won't get any easier.

    Yes, we track your total XP for the leaderboard, this is the number used to set the type and level and volume of air defenses.

    Must be crazy amount of air units for the top 20 players competing for the prize.. If the volume of air defences keep increasing.

    Somewhere between 150 and 200, depending on what exactly the base has.

    Probably lvl 10 as lowest, and lvl 30 as highest judging by the video.
