Once you've mastered the game basics and built a powerful fleet, it's time to conquer the Universe.

There's a few things we can do now, we are basically aiming at power and recognition now. From being in the Top 3 Ranking and earning those hefty Taxes to defeating a Boss and becoming part of history.

One thing to remember is that Resource production will be slowly growing as we research our Production Levels but Units we build now are going to be more expensive, so building a fleet is going to be considerably slower now. Let's not waste them and be more careful who we battle. It's better to avoid a fight if we are going to lose since this will make us drop in the Rankings considerably and the race up is slow and a lot of work.
To become a Top Player we need to increase our score, there's a few things we can do:
One of the mistakes many players run into when raiding is to send their Cargo Ships to battle. Cargo Ships are weak and they will easily get destroyed in a fierce battle. What a pro player does is send them later, after the enemy defenses have been destroyed or maimed so there's no battle, just looting.
The idea is to send two raids: an offensive one to eliminate resistance and a looting one that will collect as many resources as possible. But how do you time them both so they are well synchronized? You want to send the Cargos just after the Battle so that the enemy hasn't had time to build new units or spend the resources.
It is very simple to do and it doesn't require you to do distance calculations or anything else. A Mission will always have the speed of the slowest unit in it, so just add the same slow unit on both offensive and looting raids, one after the other. This will usually be a 5k speed unit (🇷🇪 Bomber or 🇲🇰 Destroyer). Here's an example:
Here we are adding 1 🇷🇪 Bomber to both raids.

These units are special regarding their cost, which increases by the amount of existing units in your planet or the Universe. A trick used by top players is to send the units to other guild members so they don't count towards your quota and you can build them at a reduced cost.
