The Great War Rivals Beginners Guide: Tips and Tricks

Here are some of our tips in our The Great War Rivals Beginners Guide to help you, newbies, to kickstart your journey.

  • When you are on your way to attack a certain troop, make sure you tap on the middle of the base, so that your weaponry can successfully destroy the troop from all sides. A green line shows the damage done to the troop and once it turns red it means the job is almost done, ultimately becoming zero which defines the base is successfully destroyed. 
  • One tip that you must remember is that you can speed up the process by using the gold which you have in your capacity.
  • Make sure to collect the supply lines after completing the chapters. The chapters are easy to complete with basic missions like building a cement factory, oil refinery, etc.
  • While building your base, give equal importance to the food supply as compared to your training camps, alongside hospitals and houses. 
  • You must increase the level of your headquarters (basically upgrading them) to increase your active march capacity. The more the active march capacity of your troop, the better chances you have to win combat and destroy other bases faster. 
  • Under the profile of your commander, there is a column described as Skills. By clicking on that, another screen appears with lots of locked and unlocked icons. Among those icons reside an icon named Troop Attack, from where you can maximize the attacking potential of your army troop.
  • In the same display, you can find the tab of auto-assign from where you can assign skills useful to fight, build, research, train, gather, etc to your troops. 
  • Once we have finished training for the battle, we must next equip the empire, build additional towers, and organize an army after finishing the training. You realize at this point that this is a geo-strategy similar to Lord of the Rings: Rise to War. The player must pick between two combat sides: the Germans and the Russians. Beginners should not be concerned because the city is shielded by an energy shield. When this dissipates, hostile states will begin attacking you.
