Train new soldiers or promote them?

It’s a building called Troop Academy. This building let you promote soldiers to a higher Tier.

The process works by first choosing the soldier type you want to promote, then you choose the soldier type you want the soldier to be promoted to.

The question is – is it cheaper to promote a soldier or is it better to dismiss him and train a new one?

The answer is very clear. It’s cheaper to dismiss a soldier of a lower Tier and train a new soldier of a higher Tier rather than promote him.

As we can see the cost of training a new soldier is almost 50% cheaper.

So the advice is – Dismiss soldiers and train new ones.

Mobile Strike tips – State Boosts

From time to time you will find a screen right between the White Dow/Shield mini screen and the Challenges mini screen.

This mini screen shows different small icons representing Reseach, Construction, Farming etc.  The picture below show an example of how it can look.

This is what is called State Boosts, and it’s a time limited boosts given to all bases in the State for a short time. Usually a few hours to a day/days. The state boosts can be very helpful for the biggest focus areas like research, construction and troop training.

The boosts are usually very strong and gives a large improvement for speeding up time for these tasks. It can also give free use of resources or items used for research or construction.

An example of how the State Boosts overview looks like is shown below.

In order to give some perspective of what all this means, we made a comparison with and without the gear while we were training 10M Warden Tier 7:

As we see from the pictures above, the gear gives more than 50% (57%) reduction on the training speed.

Troop queue

For use in some lower level Tier troops, the gear gives also an extreme boost in training queue numbers, seen in the picture below.
