Gunship Battle: Total Warfare may seem like a simple game, but there are a lot of sectors that players need to keep in mind. The most prominent mechanic that this game emphasizes is managing all the limited resources to create a thriving environment for your army. Doing so can be extremely tough if players don’t know what to prioritize. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of the sectors that players need to learn about and prioritize as a beginner so that they’ll know how to start the game in the best way possible.

Manage the Economy

In every real-time strategy game, the most important sector that players need to focus on is managing their economy. Economy refers to the gaining and spending of resources. To gain a successful start, players need to establish a consistent economy at the start of the game that allows them to produce more resources compared to what they’re spending. Beginners often make the mistake of not placing a lot of priority on building their economy despite it being crucial to their development.

There are a lot of ways to gain resources in the game and even more ways for players to spend them. Finding the balance of spending resources and earning them back immediately is the mark of a good RTS player. Remember that a good economy is one that never runs out of resources but doesn’t limit you on what you want to spend on. As long as you prioritize upgrading your resource buildings and mobilizing your fleet to find resource plots, you should be able to have a stable economy.

Ready Your Fleet

The most influential part of playing a real-time strategy is having a good military, or in Gunship Battle: Total Warfare’s case – a powerful fleet. Economy and military go hand-in-hand and one can’t function without the other. The economy makes sure that the player is able to produce new units while the military protects you from other players that are threatening to take your resources. During the early stages of the game, establishing your economy is more important but you should make sure that both are given equal attention in the middle stages of the game.

Unlike other real-time strategy games, building a powerful fleet is much more complex in Gunship Battle: Total Warfare. There’s a hard cap on the number of ships you can have meaning you can’t just build the cheapest or strongest units and expect to dominate. Each ship has its own advantage or disadvantage in battle which forces players to create a fleet that has a variety of ships. We’ll be placing more insight into this by creating in-depth articles that explain how the military sector works.

Keeping Your Base Busy

The base is the place where all the magic happens. This is where players upgrade their buildings, collect resources, build new weaponry, and research new tactics to help them succeed. Needless to say, the base is always a busy place, or at least it should be. Most players don’t have the patience to keep the base busy since they do a few tasks and leave it at that for a few hours. This is an inefficient way to do things if you want to stay at the top because it keeps you behind the rest of the players.

Players should always have a task active every hour. This game requires a bit of commitment but you don’t have to stare at the screen 24/7 to succeed. As long as you have about 5 minutes to spare every hour, you can do all the important tasks you need to do without being left behind by the competition. Try to activate every task from upgrading buildings to training troops. If something isn’t doing anything then force it to do a task so that you can keep up with the top names.

Raising Combat Power

Raising combat power is basically the summary of all the tasks/sectors we’ve already mentioned in this guide. Combat power is the average value of all the things that you own in the game. This means that upgrading a building or training new troops will add to your combat power. It’s important to raise your combat value because it gives your account a higher stature regardless of everything else. When you have higher combat power, more players will respect you or try to scout you out.

Combat power is the only thing that most players look at. A player with a high amount of combat power is often recruited to a prestigious alliance and is left alone by other players. Players with low combat power will be constantly rejected by alliances are picked on by stronger players. There are a number of ways to raise your combat power so don’t be too worried about this part. 

Completing Missions

Beginners don’t often realize the importance of completing missions. Missions are a huge source of resources and helps your economy thrive. It also serves as a basic guideline on what players need to do to improve the state of their base and help them to become better players. Even veteran players try to complete as many quests as they can in a day so beginners should prioritize it the same way.

There are multiple types of quests in the game from the main quests to the daily quests. Each type of quest have different kinds of rewards that are all useful when progressing your account. As a beginner, try to look at the quest overview and start doing all the missions that you can complete so that you can get all the rewards from it as soon as possible.
