    Thanks guys you rock! so glad to now the scouting world has nothing to do with the tourney as far as easy/med/hard. yea Soggy I ment the "Advanced Scouts" tech sorry I worded that wrong.:confused:

    It was my goal for 1000 points but I get that easy enough so m now challenging myself for a 1600 goal,,I can get though not easy long as I get online enough to keep my army's going and do the 6 rounds in 6 prov's.. I find myself catering more with it so I have some work to do, either upgrade my armories soon as I do the research. or add a 6th armory...there is also a few AWs I need...Ill get there :)
    Ive seen some get a 4000 score and Im like, That will be my goal someday!! :D

    Yes Kctanzen I have noticed the more rounds you do the harder. also same with provs..there is a big difference in like the first few provs, ill have a good bit of army but in the 10 or up my army lowers. I checked this once on day 2 of a tourney after opening up 10 provs.
    I have weighed the options of opening up more provs and doing less rounds for my goal.. but often the 60 point in the 6th round over runs anything I was trying to do lol
    I thought if I did less rounds I would have more time to train troops,, but what's the point if I'm fighting more provs .

    The percentage starts at 5% and increases by that each round, so by round 20 you are at a full squad size (20 x 5% = 100% or 1 squad). From memory there is a minimum squad size of 6 so a person with a small enough full squad size will likely get some variance as a result of the minimum possible amount.

    I have skipped several open squad size upgrades, if I do not go back and do them will it make any difference if I start now? I'm about to enter the Elements. I have several buildings to make troops so I can do battle but I'm not sure if missing those upgrades is hurting or not. I would like to battle more.

    DO NOT go back and take those techs.
    You can only do a handful of world map fights per day where they help you, but you can do hundreds per week in the tournament where they hurt you.

    The point I would make is that after you scouted a province it battle parameters would be set. If you then did an upgrade on your ss, none of that would change.

    This seems like a good place to ask a question, since it covers the same material. IF I skip a squad upgrade in the tech tree, how does that affect the next squad upgrade I am forced to unlock? For example, if the unlocked SU (Squad Upgrade) has no value on the next upgrade, thats a good thing, BUT if the SU I skipped, has no bearing on the next upgrade...I would like to know that...IE
    I skip an upgrade and the next upgrade gives me 200 per squad. My concern is that if I would have unlocked the previous upgrade, would THAT 200 upgrade be different? Bottom line...does skipping an SU have any affect on the next SU?

    Each SS tech increases your SS by 3xtech name
    "Squad Size upgrade 23" increases your SS by 3x23
    "Squad Size upgrade 4" increases your SS by 3x4
    Note: It's the name that matters, not how many you have unlocked so SS tech 23 will always increase your SS by 69 regardless of any skipped techs.

    Its this mechanic (in Soggys post) that makes skipping techs in later chapters have a bigger impact on squad size and tournaments, because the tech names get bigger every chapter.
