Here are the top 10 tips/tricks/cheats you need to know for DomiNations (Cold War Update).
1. Advance Your Units Through the Ages
• Spearmen and Slingers are okay, but wouldn’t you rather play with the Assault Vehicle and the Mobile Rocket Launcher (MRL)? Upgrade your armory and bring the most advanced units to war. You’ll thank us later…
2. Use the Rally Tactic!
• Sure, you can have all of your units bear down on a single target, but consider the versatility of this tool. Rally your troops to a central location before applying the Protect tactic, or use it to pull your troops out of heavy fire. Alternatively, pair it with a few of your lead troops to take out critical targets, then let the rest of your army go to work.
3. Protect Your Resources in Walled-Off Areas
• Having a single Wall running all around your base means you’re vulnerable if someone breaks through that single line of defense. Separate, smaller walled-off sections can slow down your opponent, and gives a chance for your defensive buildings to blast away at your enemy.
4. Build up Your Defenses
• Traps, towers, garrisons – there are so many options to defend your base. Upgrading defense buildings also helps to increase your player level so you can move to the next age. As a nice bonus, if you are able to destroy troops that attack your base, you can earn Crowns.
5. Move up the Leagues to get Better Daily Rewards
• As long as you’ve made a single offensive attack during the current season, you will be placed in a league. When you’re in a league, a boat will appear at your dock every day, bearing a range of gifts. The more League Medals you have, the better rewards you can get.
6. Join an Active Alliance
• Alliances let you participate in World Wars, test your base layout without losing troops, and request additional units to take into battle. We could do a whole top 10 list on why you should repair your Alliance Gate and join an Alliance.
7. Participate in Events to Earn Troops and Resources
• An icon will appear on your base for special, limited-time challenges. These events are based on actual world history – such as the black plague, the oil boom, and the Berlin airlift. If you can complete the event on time, then you can earn specialty Troop Tactics, Buildings, or piles of resources.
8. Activate Blessings for a Leg up
• Feel that your troops need a little more health on the battlefield? Pick up a Armor Blessing from the Temple. Need to eek out a little more treasure for that next upgrade? The Loot Blessing has you covered. The Defender, Trap, and Storage Blessings have your back when you’re away from DomiNations. Don’t forget that blessings only work during PvP battles.
9. Upgrade Your Research to Further Develop Your Units
• The Library, the University, and the Blacksmith all have places to research advancements for your troops as well as improve your defenses and resource generation. Build strength for your nation with a focus on economy, defense or army upgrades through the choices you make.
10. It’s Not All About Winning – Until it is!
• When raiding other villages, be sure to wipe out all of their defensive buildings. This enables your surviving troops to head into battle with you again next time without waiting to be retrained.
