Hi,
Just was wondering how to build a war factory, shipyard and so on.
I was never prompted to build these buildings .. Is there somewhere to choose to build them from?
Also how do you increase your allied attack and allied defence ?

store>unit buildings.

Buy units and make sure you have enough allies to use them all.
Each ally uses 4 units, so if you have 16 units, have 4 allies.
Do not add more allies than you have need fr or you will be visible to higher level players :)

So to add to the noob questions, is there a difference between raid and attack? I mean, I know they're different in the way you go about initiating them, but is there a difference in the outcome and how much you can possibly earn if you win? Thanks for any replies.

you can do alot more w "raid" than you can with "attack". attack is more a quick fight
option, but with the right strategy tons of $$ can be made. choosing raid allows you
to view the rivals map, profile, and you can choose exactly what or who
you want to attack. i mainly use attack, but raid is nice because you can view the rivals
profile....

Yeah, I try not to attack without viewing Raid first to see the stats of who I am going to fight. Attacking is a singal click action, over in a few seconds. Raid you choose what and how much you want to attack.

Does anyone know if the cost of raiding is higher than attacking? I would imagine with more reward comes more risk but I have not figuerd out which will be better once I start leveling again.

Also, can you get loot drops in raiding or is that just in pve?

What's a loot drop? Is that from CC? I like the fact that you can pick the exact target in raid, like going after a munitions depot instead of a barracks, for instance.

When I have attacked people and lost I click on there weapons/troops and could swear it said Can not puchase, item is a look drop. In PvE when sometimes when you kill someone or destroy something you get a soldier or a ship for example besides the money. I wondered if the same thing happens in Raiding so I know where to farm "extra items" when I resume leveling.

I don't think so, but I'm a noob and don't know for sure.

Another question, I've seen players post screen captures of their results, how do you do that on an iPhone?

So, to answer multiple questions.
"Raid">then attack the guy has same outcome as just "Attack", I don't know why the attack button is there, but I'm sure there are some monster players that are so sure of their own dominance, they just Attack, attack attack, looking for a cow.

You do not get loot from raiding buildings, at least I have never seen it and been plain a while, here and CC.

Screen capture on iPhone, press both on/off (top) button and menu (centre) buttons at once - works in all apps as it's hardwired into the phone.

Loot items are from following the story or from PvP attacks - and yes, when you click on them in a rivals list it will say "cannot purchase"

Sry, but I can't seem to find the buildings anywhere( war factory, and such)
After I go to store. I have 6 options ( specials, money buildings, defense buildings,expansion, extras, and units.
Are they in a different location?

I can't get more than 18 of my allies to show in my list, whether I go thru the "Add Allies" tab or through the "Visit Allies" tab on the second page of "View More". Anyone with a solution?
