Im getting Progressive Era side quests somehow, those are Military Preparations and Riot Control, cant complete them since I cant gather more Progressive Era units unless I move up in the age. It may have something to do that Im already in the Progressive Era map, if it itsnt then idk how Im getting these.
General Update: About to research another tech for the quest to gather more Progressive Era and maybe Modern Era troops, got an Arc and the top 1 of my neighborhood is now in Progressive Era and the top 3 has Progressive Era troops.
Neighborhood Update (Because Im still stuck on the story quest that requires me to research 3 tech and currently doing it): Some people have reached the Industrial Age and have troops from that age, meanwhile I seem to be the only one with Progressive Era troops, so far.
On the neighborhood thing, relatively peaceful than I thought, only 3 people attempted to attacked me with varying bonuses of 42% to 76% attack bonus and 31% to 59% defense bonus. All didnt even take down one of my defense units which only have a 18% attack and 26% defense bonus (Dont worry, Im getting a great building or two to improve those stats). I guess Its because of the 1.5 battlefield scaling or something.
Just fought my first actual battle in the progressive era, obviously lost since I only have Colonial Age troops but almost won.
If you're wondering what troops I used and the enemy's troops, It was 7 Grenadiers and 1 Field Gun against 5 Tanks and 3 Armored Cars. enemy only had 2 Tanks left before I lost.
When someone does plunder me, I want to do at least a little bit of damage to their units (Maybe even kill one of their units) when defending. Any tips? Beside the whole "Collect on time" thing which doesn't seem to answer my question that much.
Ps. I'm in Colonial Age
