Expansion Details

The time (in seconds) it takes to upgrade to the next level is determined by the following formula: $ { \text{Building time (seconds)} = \left \lbrack \cfrac{25,200}{11} \times 1.1 ^ \text{Level} - 1,728 \right \rbrack } $

Level 1 does not follow this formula, as its build time was shortened by 12 minutes 12 seconds (732s)
when it was added to the in-game tutorial.

The accumulative time (in seconds) it takes to upgrade up to the next level is determined by the following formula: $ { \text{Accumulative building time (seconds)} = \left \lbrack 25,200 \times \left (\ 1.1 ^ \text{Level} -\ 1\ \right )\ - 1,728 \times \text{Level}\ \right \rbrack -\ 732} $

Level 1 does follow this formula.
  • Each type of land Unit has a Minimum Barracks Level  Minimum: only Barracks which have been upgraded to that level or higher can train that unit. Upgrades above the minimum barracks level for that unit will reduce training time for that unit.

Training Times

Basic Formula:
$ { Training \ time \ = \ 0.95 \ ^ \left ( Current \ Barracks \ level \ - \ Minimum \ Barracks \ level \ for \ the \ Unit \right ) \times \ Base \ Training \ time } $
  • The 5 new levels added in 20?? are show as  Levels 50 - 54  and  Level 55 + 56  are to fill out the rows showing what the training times would at those levels if those levels existed.
