Massive New Feature! Clan HQs!

Command Your Clan From A Single Location!

Construct It For Free Today!

Commander!

Something groundbreaking has come to the Wasteland: Clan HQs!

The fight to dominate the Wasteland has never been more important, but you won’t accomplish much solo.

To better your changes of dominating your Wasteland rivals, your Clan must have one location from which to rule. For this purpose, STRATCOM has ordered the construction of Clan HQs!

Clan HQs are special Buildings that bring together the forces of a Clan and strengthen the armies of its Members. You can protect and upgrade your own Clan HQ, or engage enemy HQs by attacking and downgrading them. If you’re successful, this will reduce their Levels, and limit the bonuses they are able to receive.

As if that wasn’t reason enough, having a central HQ allows your Clan to create Training Programs, which provide enormous bonuses to all your Clan Members’ armies.

ABOUT

Clan HQs have 21 levels (0-20). When first constructed, Clan HQs will be at Level 3, but can be downgraded to zero by rival Clans. The higher the Level of your Clan HQ, the greater the bonuses it is able to provide to your Clan Members.

Each upgrade Level grants you additional Influence Points and increases the bonuses you are able to receive from your Training Programs.

HARDWARE

Hardware is required to Upgrade Clan HQs. It can be earned by either participating in certain Tournaments, or by purchasing it from the “Info” tab of your Clan HQ.

TRAINING PROGRAMS

When you construct your Clan HQ, you also gain access to Training Programs. The “Training Programs” section of your Clan HQ interface contains a variety of Programs. Developing these provides statistical bonuses to the armies of ALL Members of that Clan.

Training Programs are not affected by attacks, and cannot be downgraded. Once upgraded to a certain Level, they will never drop below that Level.

To upgrade a Training Program, you’ll need Software.

SOFTWARE

Software is a special Clan-only Resource that can be earned by participating in Clan Missions and Tournaments, or by purchasing it with Crystals when upgrading your Training Programs.

HQ INTERACTIONS

Each Clan should work to downgrade other Clans’ HQs. Firstly, downgrading rival Clan HQs keeps them from receiving bonuses. Secondly, downgrading other Clans’ HQs is vital for a Clan hoping to upgrade their own HQ.

To downgrade a rival HQ, your Clan must perform a successful attack on it.

If another Clan successfully attacks your HQ while an upgrade is NOT in progress, your HQ will be downgraded by one Level, and 50% of the Hardware spent on the upgrade to the lost Level will be returned to your Clan.

If another Clan manages to perform a successful attack on your HQ while it is being upgraded, the upgrade will fail, and your HQ will be downgraded by one Level. Your Clan will be reimbursed 75% of the Hardware spent on the attempted upgrade, as well as a further 50% of the Hardware spent on the upgrade to the lost Level.

Important: Clan HQs cannot be downgraded more than ONCE per day.

HQ MANAGEMENT (FOR CLAN LEADERS)

BUILDING YOUR HQ

Clan HQs can only be built on special HQ Sites, which can be found on the Map and scattered throughout the Wasteland.

Each Clan may build only ONE Clan HQ.

Only the Clan Leader is able to initially construct your Clan HQ.

To construct your Clan HQ, go to the Map. From there, click on the large icon in the bottom-left to open the "Locate HQ Sites" window, then click “Find HQ Sites”. The rest is simple: find an HQ Site of your choosing, then click "Place HQ".

RELOCATING YOUR HQ

HQ Dimensional Gates are special Items that can be used to change an HQ’s location on the Map. Clan HQ Dimensional Gates can be acquired from the Black Market, within the “Special” tab.

IMPORTANT

Only Clan Leaders – and those Clan Members granted permission to do so – can:

Spend Hardware to upgrade their HQ. Upgrading your HQ takes time, but this process can be sped up with the use of Crystals.

Use Clan HQ Dimensional Gates to relocate their Clan HQ to a new location of their choosing.

Use Software to Upgrade a Clan’s Training Program.

You’d be well advised to remember this information, Commander. If you need further clarification or information, view the “Guide” section in-game.

REMEMBER: Only Clans that have been around for more than 7 days are able to create a Clan HQ.

If you are the Leader of your Clan, click on the “Build” button below to construct your Clan HQ immediately! Set your Clan on the path to total domination!

What if a clan choses NOT to have a Clan HQ? Is this possible? What are the pros and cons of not having a clan HQ?

Yes this is possible.  If you have it you can get boosts to your clan (increased troop offense, defense, and speed and reduced credit consumption.  The benefit of not having it is that you don't have to defend it.  But at level 5 it can't be downgraded, so you don't have to defend it then either.  So most clans will probably at least get it to level 5.
