Mobile Strike tips – Grid Search

It is very useful to understand what exists in your state. Either it be the CP or important rss sources.

Most players do grid search in order to find opportunities of different sorts, but it’s a good idea to do it a bit systematically in order to be effective.

In the picture below you see that we start in one corner of the map.

This is simply done by opening the map, and scroll until you find a fence, either to one side or up/ down.

Then you scroll 90 degrees on the first scroll until you find a fence corner like the picture above.

The next you should note is the X and Y coordinates at the mid bottom of your map screen. In the picture above it says x:509 y:1021.

One way to start searching is up and down. In the pictures below we have moved 6 points to the left, you can see the same black vertical line on both pictures as a reference. Meaning it’s a bit of an overlap, but this is only done to explain. The screen should be moved 10 points at the time.

This means that you scroll up following the fence until you see the fence on top of the screen.

Then you move 10 points to one side, that way you are covering the whole map, and not missing any spot or opportunities.

Start playing – 104 – Map and teleport

By now you have familiarized your self with the main buildings and how the different tasks like Research, Construction and Training Troops works.

In this article we take a look at our own base from the outside, and explain how the map works, and most importantly how to move around.

In the beginning most players let the base stay still on the spot the program chose for you for awhile, but one of the first tasks that you do is to choose an Alliance, and for most of the time, the alliance wants everyone to move together in order to share resources (rss) and to help each other defend against enemies.

So you can expect to get a chat message or an email from one of the leaders in the alliance ordering you to move your base to their coordinates (coords).

This operation can be a bit confusing the first time, so we will take the process step by step in order to guide you through, and help you teleport your base to the alliance/ hive.

The map

On the lower left corner of your screen, you have a button that looks like the button below.

When you push this button, you will be presented with a picture looking something like this.

If you have not changed your Base name it will say something like “Base 4…5….1…”. You can change this later and make a name for it. It’s important that you change name because otherwise it’s difficult for other players to recognize who you are.

The map you see is part of an area called a State. The map is shown schematically below.

In the middle is the Control Point. Each state have a different Control Point symbol, but below you see an example.

This is what players are fighting for control over. If you have control over this, you and your alliance are the ruling alliance and can claim honor and glory, but also taxes from other players.

Coords to hive

In order to join and move together with you alliance you need to teleport your Base to some given coordinates. You will get those from one of your alliance leaders.

If you get them in chat in will look like this “S:840 X:250 Y:300”. The first letter S is the coordinate to the State, the two others are the XY coordinates to the state map as explained above.

When you get them in the chat you just click on the numbers and you are taken directly to the map and those coordinates.

The alliances will look something like this, but can be both bigger, or just a few bases. That depends mostly on how old the alliance is.

Teleporting

If you click on a free tile (empty space) on the map close to your alliance members, you will see a screen asking if you want to teleport or occupy.

You can then choose to teleport and you Base is teleported to that location.
