Is there an explanation of the rewards and what they do or how to get them?
I see gold medals, shards, silver and bronze shards or medals? Not sure what they are? Trophies that unlock tanks... but no explanation of what they mean or why I should want them? What is the advantage of elite mode? The only thing that is clear is diamonds and dollars.
Ill try to answer these the best i can:
Medals (Red and Gold battlefield pic-ups, rank points) - This is your score in Iron Force and the amount you get decides how high you finish in the weekly tournament, the higher you finish the more prizes you get.
Bronze / Silver / Gold Shards - These are used to purchase tank Afterglows, which increase your Tank's strength similar to Patterns and Decals. Afterglows are only available for Tanks Tier 4 and over.
Tank Trophies - Currently there are two trophies in Iron Force that unlock Tanks:
The Gold Trophy unlocks the Monoceros (Tier 5) for purchase and can be obtained from finishing extremely highly in the Weekly Tournament (the actual position you need to reach depends if you are on iOS or Android)
The Platinum trophy unlocks the Serpens (Tier 6) for purchase and is obtained by finishing highly in the Champions Tournament, which takes place each week from Monday to Wednesday.
Tank Shards - The majority of Tanks in Iron Force can be purchased with either Diamonds or Funds, however all S-Model Tanks and some of the newer Tanks can only be be obtained by collecting enough Tank Shards, which you can get from the Arms Dealer.
Elite Mode - Becoming an Elite player allows you to progress and build up your Tank faster, benefits include; Additional after Battle Funds, faster upgrade time, Daily Diamond and Fund bonuses and exclusive Elite only Patterns and Decals. The benefits of Elite increase with each Elite level.
Ataboy Dave. And I copied this for my newbies. I Did the same for EW to help my team mates as well so they don’t have to jump from page to page to understand the workings of EW (Empire Wars) unfortunately no one plays EW in my league but I did post a simple info page.
Now I would add one more comment to the OPs based on he/she Is to join a legion where team mates can help and guide newbies along. Joining a league with a small starter tank if that’s the case, is difficult but some one will take OP under their wing all OP has to do is go on global and apply to join and preferably with a like country and flag.
