Increase Troop Strength
You can make your troops more powerful in Age of Z by going to 'Research' at your Academy and checking out the the options under 'City Defense and Military'. There are several technologies you can research to improve your troops' stats. You can also choose Commander Skills that make your troops more powerful, and enjoy a temporary Attack boost at VIP 8 and above.
Check for Incoming Attacks
Keep an eye out for a red flickering line around your city as this is a warning that someone wants to attack or scourt you or one of your allies. You will be able to find out more by checking the Alliance Battle screen for incoming attacks.
If you find that your city is being continually attacked you can use Shields to protect it, this though is expensive. You can however avoid being attacked altogether by keeping your resources under the Depot limit. Tap your Depot building, then tap 'Details', and check out the 'Food/Oil/Steel/Mineral Protection' numbers listed. These are the amount of each resource that will be protected from attacks. If your resources are below these numbers, any enemies that attack you and win will get nothing except the few uncollected resources outside your city wall. You can also use the random teleport or elite teleport to avoid a prolonged enemy attack or you can consider joining the largest Alliance in the vicinity to receive strong support.
Protect your Resources from Attacks
The Depot Building in your city protects the resources from the enemy. Resources that have been placed in the Depot Building cannot be looted by others so if you want to protect more resources at a time you need to upgrade this facility. Check out our Building Guide page to find out more about the different buildings in Age of Z.
Restore City Defense After Defeat
If you are defeated by the enemy and your city is captured a fire begins, during which your City Defense will be reduced. In order to restore your City Defense you must use the 'Recover' function which will make the fire go out automatically after your Burn Time counts down. If you allow your City Defense to burn down to zero, your City will be automatically randomly teleported to a new location on the world map. After being teleported, your City Defense will be automatically restored to max.
Reset Your Defense
There are several ways in Age of Z in which you can get free Gold. You will normally be rewarded Gold after you have completed importants tasks but you will also get it after joining an Alliance for the first time and during some temporary events like Strongest Commander or completing certain achievements such as Alliance Quest or Nation Progress.
Join an Alliace
Join an Alliance as soon as possible so you are able to access powerful Alliance technologies and be able to buy items in the Alliance store. Click 'Alliance' and you will see a list of alliances.
