War Planet Online: The Beginner’s Guide

War Planet Online is an online mobile strategy game. You take control of a force tasked with preserving world peace after a major conflict has taken place, and get dragged into a full-on war with an emerging threat.

What is the highest level I can reach?

Level 30.

How do I teleport my base?

If you are in a bad situation but you don’t have enough Medals to choose the ideal spot to teleport to, “Random Teleport” is your answer. Use it and your base will be teleported to a random location on the World Map. If you want to surprise your enemy and be more prepared for battle, then you can use the “Elite Teleport” item and teleport to a location of your choice. If you are in a Faction, you can move your base to any available location within the Faction’s territory on the World Map with the “Faction Teleport” item.

How do I move my Buildings?

If you want to change your layout, you can tap on the “Edit” icon, then start rearranging your buildings.

Battle Rules

We follow several rules to ensure that battles are executed as intended.

Rule 1: Individual attack/defense armies can be mixed (attack armies can participate in defense battles and vice-versa).

If you are joining an Ally’s attack/defense battle, you are able to join as long you arrive before the battle ends. It’s easier to enter a defense battle because usually allies prefer to be closer together on the world map.

  • This only works for armies that are in the same Faction.
  • This rule does not apply for armies from different Factions.
  • Keep in mind that you have to send your army at the right moment. If you are too late, your army will start in the second battle instead of the first.

Rule 2: War Planet Online has synchronous battles.

The outcomes of battles occur in real time. If you and your ally send an army but your army arrives first, it may take a large amount of damage before the ally’s army arrives. Even after the ally’s army arrives, you may take a lot of losses. Coordinate your attacks/defense with your allies for the best outcome.

When you send a defensive army to help an ally against a rally, but your army enters after the battle is already started, you will enter too late and your ally’s army might take a significant amount of damage. Even if a second Ally then sends a defensive army to help, you may still take a lot of damage, even if you win. Coordinate your attacks/defense with your allies and try to place your city near your allies for better defense.

Rule 3: Rallies can’t be combined with individual attacks.

Rallies always come in waves. That means that if there are two Rallies, the Rally that comes last must wait until the first one is finished fighting. Even if you send an individual army that will arrive seconds before the Rally, it must wait until the Rally is finished.

The benefit of a Rally is that combined armies will arrive together and will fight together. Individual armies can be more powerful, but you can’t guarantee that all armies will arrive before the battle is finished, and one of the individual armies could take a heavy amount of damage. A Rally ensures that all armies will arrive at the same time.

Rule 4: The Reinforcement Garrison has two game mechanics.

Outside reinforcements: Shows how many troops are helping an ally.

Inside reinforcements: Shows how many allied troops are helping you defend your base.

Outside and inside reinforcements show you how many troops are defending, even if they are currently battling. Until the battle is over, additional defense armies can join. Armies not sent from the Reinforcement Garrison will be sent back to their Bases after the battle is over. Only armies sent from the Reinforcement Garrison will stay.

GENERAL NOTE: Keep in mind that rallies are often not the best choice of attack. Your enemy can activate a protective shield moments before the rally arrives, or call for help from their allies. You can coordinate attacks with your allies and make attacks that have more power than armies sent via the Operations Room building. Note that you can’t combine your individual attacks with other rallies and vice versa.

How do I find my realm and realm ID?

In order to see the Realm, please zoom out until you are in Planet View. On the left side, there is an icon called Worlds. There you can see your Realm and its ID.

What are Power Relays?

Power Relays are buildings that distribute Power in order for your buildings to function properly. The distance (in tiles) that dictates which buildings they can power is called the Power Range. It can be increased by upgrading the Main Power Supply, but it can also be decreased if you choose to Overcharge a Power Relay.

What are Renegade Camps?

Renegade Camps are neutral armies spawned on the World Map. To be able to attack higher-level Renegade Camps, you must first defeat the lower-level Renegade Camps (ex: You must defeat a Level-1 Renegade Camp before you can attack a Level-2 Renegade Camp). For defeating a Renegade Camp, you will receive experience or resources (ex: Vouchers or items), and experience for your Commander. There are four types of Renegade Camps, each representing a unit type (Armored, Aerial, Assault, Artillery) which is predominant in a camp. The maximum Renegade Camp level is 30.

What are Bookmarks?

Bookmarks help you save coordinates for specific objects located on the World Map (player Base, resource Deposits, etc.). To add a Bookmark, you must tap on the desired object and tap on the icon on the left of the object’s coordinates, then tap on the Confirm icon. You can also choose to add a name and description for each Bookmark, as well as a type: Friendly, Enemy and Other.

What are Vouchers?

These are in-game consumables that give you various benefits (resources, buffs, etc.). Vouchers can be acquired by various means (from Daily Rewards, Daily Missions or Daily Supplies, or by participating in special events or buying them from the in-game shop.)

What are the benefits of being a VIP?

There are many bonuses that VIP status provides. The amount of bonuses depends on your VIP level (Free Speed-Up, Army Speed, Army Size, Gathering Speed, and many more). The higher your VIP level, the more bonuses you will get. The bonuses will not work if your VIP status is not activated. You can increase your VIP level with VIP Points, which can be bought from the Shop or received as rewards from Missions, etc. You can also activate your VIP whenever you choose with VIP time vouchers, also rewarded through various game features and/or bought from the Shop. VIP time vouchers can also stack, meaning that activating several of them will add time when your VIP bonuses are active.

Last but not least, each time you reach the next VIP level the VIP bonuses automatically become active for 24 hours and increase your VIP bonus duration by 24 hours.

What are Commanders?

In order to send out an Army on the World Map, you must send a Commander to lead it. There are 5 unique Commanders, each with their own class, special units and skills. Using the right Commander for the right task is essential for success. Each Commander earns experience, which is rewarded to them by battling Renegade Camps and being assigned on Black Ops. By earning experience, the Commanders can unlock and upgrade skills, increase the efficiency of their current skills, increase the base stats of their units (HP and damage) or get rewards (Vouchers, Equipment, Chests).

What are Provinces?

These are regions on the World Map that have one capital city for every Province. In order to make a Province part of your territory, you must be in a Faction and occupy the city. Only one Faction can control a Province. Controlling a Province will let you and your Faction gather resources from Elite Deposits within it. The more Provinces you control, the more bonuses you get. Your Faction can only attack a Province that is adjacent to its own territory. Provinces on islands can be attacked only if they have a link to other Provinces.

The amount of tiles a Province has as well as your Faction Rank determine how much Oil and Steel you will get in the beginning of the day. The more Provinces your Faction control and the higher your Rank, the better. 🙂

What do I do when my Base is damaged?

When you are attacked and you lose the defense battle, your Base will take initial damage and then additional damage over time (burning damage). Once the burning time is over, the Base will automatically start repairing. The auto-repair process will restore the base’s health over time. You have the option to restore the base’s health instantly using Medals. When your Base takes burning damage, you have the option to extinguish the fire using Medals. If your base’s health drops to 0, you will be automatically teleported to a random location on the World Map.

How can I send more Armies?

Upgrading your Command Center building and unlocking new Commanders is the only way to increase the number of Armies you can send.

How can I get free Medals?

You can get free Medals from joining a Faction, leveling up your Commanders, participating in Limited-Time Events, claiming Daily Rewards and completing some important Missions. You can also get Medals from the Lucky Draw and gather them on the World Map.

What are Daily Supplies?

Daily Supplies are a feature that rewards you with various resources, vouchers, etc. All you need to do is tap on the Daily Supplies icon, located on the bottom-right of your Base screen, above the Map icon. Once a reward is collected, the icon enters a cooldown state with a timer showing when you can collect another reward.

What is the News feed?

The News feed is a feature which aims to show you all the important stuff that is happening in your Realm — top Factions in a finished Faction event, players who are one of the first who managed to build a high-level Headquarters or defeat a high-level Renegade Camp, etc. It also gives us an opportunity to make special announcements like Server Maintenance messages or post a message from our Community Managers.

What are Black Ops?

Black Ops are a special type of mission that can be started from the Covert Bureau building. Completing Black Ops awards you with resources and experience for the Commander assigned to the Black Ops mission. Keep in mind that your Defense Commander (J. Trasher) also receives experience from Black Ops.

What are Provincial Bonuses?

Provincial Bonuses are unique benefits that a Provincial Capital gives to a Faction that occupies it. There are four types of bonuses: Offense, Defense, Economic and Development.

What is the Faction Shop?

The Faction Shop is a place where Faction members can benefit from participating in Faction events. Those events reward two types of Faction currency — Hearts and Valor. Valor can be used by Faction members at the rank of General or higher to purchase various vouchers from the Item List tab of the Faction Shop. By purchasing those vouchers, they are sent to the Shop tab where all Faction members can buy them with the other Faction currency (Hearts).

What is the Equipment?

Equipment consist of items that give bonuses to your Base and your Commanders. They can be obtained by making in-app purchases and are awarded as Event rewards. They also have a small chance of dropping as a reward for defeating a Renegade Camp. Equipment can only be used by your Defense Commander, and are attached to one of 8 equipment slots.

Why do Medals take up more load capacity than normal resources when gathering them on the World Map?

Medals are heavier than normal resources, so in order to fully gather from a Battle Academy on the World Map you have to send more units. One Medal is equal to a load capacity of 1,000 Oil/Steel, so keep that in mind when sending gathering armies to Battle Academies.

How do I use Power-Ups in battle?
