We are pleased to bring you intel on Class Tech, set to arrive with our next update!
At the start of a Battlefield you will select from one of three Classes: Airman, Tanker or Cannoneer. Once you select a Class, you will receive bonuses based on research you have completed for that Class. Researching Class Tech offers you various benefits:
Strengthen units and buildings
Discounts to armament and training costs
Boost resource production
Bonuses to tactics
Increase maximum leadership points, tactic points and troop cap
Unlock Ally skills, powerful co-operative skills that benefit allies
Class Tech is designed to give you depth of choice by allowing you to select a Class that fits your play style and to create synergies with your allies and League mates.
As you progress down each Tech tree, you will need to make tough choices on which tech to prioritize. If you should ever find that you want to try different choices, you will be able to re-distribute your tech choices for a cost.
While Class Tech focuses on bonuses for your armies, there are two types of Tech that directly interact with your League or Allies:
Armament Discounts. If you should research Tech that lowers the cost of League City Munitions, all League Mates will benefit from the discount. These discounts do not stack, only the largest discount is applied.
Ally Skills. For the truly ambitious Commander, you and your Allies can challenge your tactical supremacy by researching Ally Skills:
The Unit provides the bonus to allies in a specific radius around the unit.
The bonus only affects allied units and not your own units.
Allies of the same class as the buff are not affected. If your unit is providing a Tanker Class bonus, Tanker allies do not get that bonus
There are two Ally skills in each Class. Each Unit can only benefit from each Bonus once. For example, an Airman Unit can benefit from each Tanker Ally skill once, and each Cannoneer Ally skill once, for a total of four bonuses max
All bonuses in the game (Unit Tech, Officers, Morale, etc) are based off of your units’ base stats. Ally skills are different in that they multiply your total attack, factoring in all other effects, leading to a much bigger bonus. Those who coordinate effectively shall reap the glory of war!
