    The easiest way to get units is to wait for the next monthly event and play the early missions to unlock some lower tier faction units. If kixeye preserve the same event track prize format, the first 2 attack missions and the 1st faction mission should award some Gen1 faction units which will be a key for progression.

    Finally, the next monthly event are scheduled to start March the 22nd which is in about 2.5 weeks from this date.

    or, seems to be a new sale every couple of days.  You can get some pre-built max level units with good tech.

    Take part in Warpath which starts this week. You can farm dead bases for Honor using whatever you have from a year ago. If you can earn 3 Blood Thor you can pick up a hero from the Gear Store. I suggest getting Ardra if possible. Then try your best to get the Juggernaut if you don't already have it. I'm not sure when the standard Jug bases will be out again but with just Ardra and the Jug you can do most bases. Depending on the base you might take a lot of damage or even lose your stuff which is 16 hours repair BUT it's the difference between doing a base and not doing it. Phalanx are also very useful. Once upgraded they can do a lot on their own and you can kill a whole toon of them to take a base same as Jug but only 8 hours for 12 dead. Phalanx bases are out right now, try to get one done or steal one. The first base each week pays the unit and then it pays tech. They removed them for the event store but having one will allow you to start upgrading it. Technicals are one of the newer faction units and it's utility is unbeatable in both attacking and defense. Low repair, low capacity, AA only or AG only or both and they're super cheap in the event store. Whatever xp you get in the event I would spend it all on Technicals. They're the new Howler!

    Hello Slade and welcome back to War Commander. Currently there are a plethora of bases on the map that give out units and tech for units that you can do or have opened up for you if you are in a good clan.  Once a month we have a monthly event which is another option to gain units and tech. Typically once a month as well, we have a defensive event called "onslaught  [Edit] INVASION" which is another venue for some needed tech. 

    If you ever have a question about any units or tech, please feel free to post to the forums and we can help you out.

    Depending on how far behind you actually are, you need to build up a good supply of at least one of either Liberators, Spartan ZKs, or Acolytes.  These units are really the entry-level units to get you in to the Faction Era of WC.  The good news is: by the end of the week we'll be releasing 24/7 bases for you to earn these units that will be geared towards players who are a bit behind.  There will also be separate bases that will be a little tougher where you can farm tech.  Once you've got a good stockpile of baseline units, you can climb the ranks through a variety of means (which the community has done a good job outlining above).
    In my opinion for him is to get some caretakers and tech for them because they go great with SF if you literally have nothing for faction units

    I'm sorry to disappoint you but it was a while ago we had our last onslaught. The most recent Onslaught was the October 2017 Onslaught and the current defensive events are the Invasions which can be a decent source of tech.

    Uh....I was just checking to see if you were all paying attention haha  ;) 


    But on a serious note, I am human and I goofed up and mistyped the event. I apologize. It is indeed invasion and not onslaught that we typically have monthly and thank you for letting me know. I have edited my post to show the correct information. :)

    Haven't played in nearly a year.   How the heck is anyone supposed to get decent units without help?

    lmmfao

    and now 4 an honest answer. I'm in the same boat, I started back after about 2 years out. if u were a skilled player b4 u quit great, u have a chance 2 catch up faster.  most bases that r out rite now r very hard 2 take down. and if u do get the unit u will b stuck at lvl 10 until u get  tokens or parts and that my friend is even harder. I know guys in my sector that have most of the newer stuff and they have a hard time taking down the bases 4 tech/parts. even the metal bases r a pain in the azz. kixeye at least upped the metal payout in the highway z base from 2000 to 5000. b4 that it was taking 4ever. but u still need lvl 10 phalanx or jug and pur  2 take them down with out massive damage. the technicals r ok but u need tech 2 beef them up.

    try 2 get the blackout, deena and bonesaws. the caretaker is great but worthless until u get past lvl 5 as the purifier will do the same thing at lvl 10 and is a faster upgrade.

    the events r your best bet. i had 2 do 2 of them 2 unlock a few units 2 advance. ask friends or ask in chat what bases u can take with what units u have (chat gives u a faster 1 on 1 response,).

    ask 4 help. a lot of others out there will help u take down bases. u only need a few good units 2 start advancing on your own, u can do it alone but it will take 4 ever.

    as far as buying the units, I got lucky, the 1s that were up 4 sale were the same 1s that were given in the events. it may b better 2 buy a few units, as u don't what units will b given away in the events, that is up 2 u. and as stated above, gives u a jump on upgrades.

    keep in mind, u will need 2 up grade unit storage, air field, helipad and hanger, this will increase the number of units u can deploy. 10 or 11 units help make up 4 a smaller amount of lower lvl units.

     go2 kixeye wikia fandom, it's a guide 2 war commander everything. helps u figure out what u can upgrade fastest and exactly what each unit can do.

                                                                                      DON'T TAKE IT WROMG                                                                                                          some of the above advice is great I'm not putting it down, but it sounds like some of it is coming from players that  have more advanced units.

    it's like the event videos, they r a great help 2 the players that have the great, high lvl units but don't know how 2 use them. but 2 those that don't have the units or have the lo lvl version, not much help.

    sorry if this post is hard 2 follow but I'm handy caped and have 2 peck away at the keyboard 1 letter at a time with a stick.

    hope this helps.

    Sorry but I don't think the caretaker is worthless. If you have a juggernaut, Would you risk getting a 6 hours repair or a 30 minute one?

    when did I say caretaker was worthless ?????? 4 some1 returning from a long rest, the purifier works just fine until u r strong enough 2 get the caretaker. I was not referring 2 those that already had all the good toys when the caretaker came out. I'm in the same boat as the op, I have both and I was able 2 up grade the purifier faster thus upgrade other units sooner. as. the need 4 the caretaker will come in2 play as u get stronger. would u place a 5 star general in direct charge of a platoon of privets. if he can get it, fine, but the caretaker can't do everything.
