– When you buy an energy drink there is no need to spend all your energy before because the pool will grow over 24.
– The deploy size of your army is affected by your hero level. If you use a hero with a higher level you will have a bigger deploy pool. This is why it is best to focus and level up faster your “war” hero.

– You can receive only 1 attack during a smuggling mission.
– Bosses start attacking players over lvl 5
– The boss system uses so-called attack-me-points to keep track of who to attack. You start getting them at level 4, they reset to 0 when you are added to a boss party, and you start getting them again 72 hours after your latest boss died. Only if you have 5 or more attack-me-points, will bosses be able to spawn for you.
– The trades mission are spread each for 1 player level up to level 10. In case you have locked ones level your player up to get them. For example trader mission #7 requires a level 7 player.
