Command Center 13 is coming soon! Arriving at the same time are seventeen defensive upgrades and a new missile countermeasures turret. Rock-solid base defense is key to winning the war and these fortifications help ensure your victory. 


SEASONAL DEFENSIVE UPDATE

All defenses for the entire season are released at once, giving you the choice of what to upgrade first for your strategy—the War Factory 15 is a recommended starting point because it is required to build upcoming Tier 12 Heavy Vehicles. 

The next defensive update is tentatively scheduled for the 6.9 update in September when we’ll see monthly defensive updates once more. 

NEW RESOURCE

Chromium is a new resource required for certain key defenses and may be acquired through two sources. The first source is the building Story Mode event track that begins Wednesday, July 6th, which provides all Chromium required for all upgrades in this release. Second, early adopters may upgrade immediately by purchasing Chromium through limited-time offers or item bundles. A maximum of 2,100 Chromium may be held at once.

LEVEL EXPANSION

A level 90 base is required for the Command Center 13 upgrade and all subsequent upgrades in this release. Currently, level 85 is the maximum level. Due to the concentration of power at level 85, level 85 will be spread across five new levels, from 85 to 90. Fully upgraded bases can expect to be level 90 after the 6.6 update.

If you’re currently at level 85, check the current base XP in your user profile then check the chart below. In this example, the base will be level 89 because it has 202,917,527 XP.

XP Level
140,156,099 86
158,685,271 87
177,214,442 88
195,743,614 89
214,272,784 90

GET TO THE TOP!

If you’re currently working up to level 85, a few methods are currently activated that let you make progress quickly. Each time you gain a level, rewards are granted which may contain gold, metal, thorium, and/or equipment tech. 

From Thursday until Monday each week, building discounts allow you to purchase upgrades with up to an 80% resource discount. Special Events will be run alongside these building discounts, providing access to event stores with up to 50% discounts from their normal point costs.
