Invasion: Modern Empire was recently named one of 2015’s best mobile games in a Facebook poll, and since we’re covering this game for the first time, we might as well fill you in on the title and explain what it’s all about. This exciting mobile game (Android and iOS) is an online war simulation and RTS title where you can fight enemy factions, conquer their military base, and fight toward the ultimate goal of world domination in the midst of a global apocalypse. You can play alongside friends and form your own guild and in fact, you will definitely want to round up your friends (or make new ones) to enjoy this game to the fullest. Think of this as Clash of Clans’ social gaming, base-building, and RTS elements transposed to a post-apocalyptic time and setting.
As this is a rather complex game as compared to the average game on the App Store and Play Store, we thought we’d give you a bit of a boost if you’re starting out. Check out our list of Invasion: Modern Empire tips, tricks and strategies for any question you may have about the game and its mechanics.
1. Don’t Claim Your Quest Rewards Right Away
This is a tip that we believe is very common in games like this. Yes, it is important to follow the quests, or as they’re called in here, missions. They will guide you on what to do and where to go so your base can be up to par. And you will also earn rewards for completing these missions. The thing here, though, is that you wouldn’t want to claim the rewards right away. Those rewards may be best saved and used at a later time when necessary, and as is often the case, they can be raided by other players if you redeem them right away.
2. Both Skill Trees Are Important
Once you’ve created your character, you will notice that there are two skill trees, namely Combat and Economy. But even if this is a fighting game, you shouldn’t prioritize Combat or Economy, or even vice versa. Both of these skill trees have equal importance in the grand scheme of things, so make sure that you’re paying attention to them equally when allocating skill points.
3. Don’t Hesitate – Join A Guild
It’s interesting that in Invasion: Modern Warfare, alliances are referred to as guilds, a term most commonly used in more traditional MMORPGs. But regardless of what they’re called, you would definitely want to join one. It’s that old “no man is an island” adage ringing true in yet another MMORPG, with the benefits of joining a guild being quite extensive. For starters, you’ll be able to join guild-only events and take part (and complete) guild missions. You can trade resources with fellow guild members and help each other out with your concerns. And while this probably goes without saying, it is also important to be civilized, reasonable, and friendly when negotiating with guild members. You can’t expect them to have your back if you’re acting rude and standoffish in this game!
4. Teleport Near Your Guild In Battle
Once you’ve joined an active guild – the operative word being active – you can now assist each other in battle. That would mean teleporting near them when you’re battling it out. This will give you additional protection and allow you to carry out attacks with each member being close to one another. There isn’t just strength, but also safety in numbers.
5. Distribute Resource Buildings Evenly
When constructing resource buildings, it is important that you build an equal number of each of the types. Each resource is equally essential to your base and your overall success in this game, so it’s best to ensure a balance across the board and to be an “all-rounder” when it comes to your resources.
6. Keep Your Troops Busy
Your troops aren’t just there to carry things out for you in battle. They can also help you out in other ways when there isn’t anything to fight for. Dispatch them to gather resources by going to the different farms on the map. But if you can’t find any farms, you can have your soldiers do what they do best and have them raid enemy cities for valuable resources. One thing you can try is raiding inactive players’ resource buildings, which is a nice and easy way to ensure you’ve got enough.
7. Upgrade Your Headquarters After Everything Else
Patience is key to success in Invasion: Modern Empire. That means not upgrading your headquarters until you’ve properly upgraded your other buildings. Rushing upgrades on your headquarters may sound like a nice short-term solution, but when talking about the big picture, it won’t do you much good.
