No where to go, so soon?


I thought this game would be like Boom Beach, but I learned early on that the campaign was over too soon. The battles are not worth fighting. Every unit deployed must be replaced, even if they survive, which makes the loot not worth fighting for. It took me a few months before I maxed out the upgrades to the top level, in which I am stuck making tiny incremental upgrades, that make no difference, and the only players who I can fight against, are 100% maxed out. I wish this game was modeled after Boom Beach. I open it up every day to collect the money generated.. which is very slowly adding up.. it's not addicting... it is just a waste of time, and I regret spending money on in game purchases.

More resources from home base please


I have been at this game for MONTHS and resources take weeks to build up in real life time. It’s honestly quite frustrating after 4 months of having to save up resources. Please have the resources produce at least 7 times more than they currently do.

Great but

Great game I could play for hours but when you retreat you lose all men you have deployed and sometimes you might press it by accident and when you do it’s super annoying
