Sometimes when you look at Mobile Strike it can feel like a lot when you are just returning or playing for the first time. You ask for help and people start tossing out terms that you do not understand and too quickly for you to understand. Sometimes navigating Mobile Strike can be as difficult as navigating a curvy road in the dark.
For those players that are at this point, we are here to help you learn to navigate the curves and turns so you can find your way to the light. This article will cover everything you need to know as a new or Returning Player.
You just downloaded Mobile Strike and you are lost. Do not worry and do not give up! We have all been there, even me! Here on the MSHQ website, we have tons of articles that can help you to be successful. However, this article is a great place to start. Let this article be your GPS through Mobile Strike.
Mech Dimension or Cybernetic Dimension? This is the first question many people will ask you when you start asking questions about strategy in Mobile Strike. To help you, players will need to know what dimension you are playing in. If you are only asking your Alliance that is easy because they know where you are.
However, it is not always that easy. Sometimes you have to go outside your alliance for help and then when you get asked what dimension, we have seen players stumped by this question.
So the basics in most cities you will see a portal that looks like this:
This portal allows you to go back and forth between two dimensions, Mech or Cybernetic. As we get more into navigating in Mobile Strike we will cover these dimensions more in-depth. However, for this section just know that two dimensions exist and this portal is what will allow you to switch back and forth between the two dimensions if you do have it.
Navigating the Mech Dimension
If you are in the Mech Dimension you are going to see a little Mech in the right-hand corner of your city. It looks a little bit like a transformer and I jokingly call mine Bumblebee (nerd alert).
History of the Mech Dimension
The Mech Dimension first came about in 2018. For many players, this dimension is reminiscent of old school Mobile Strike. Much of the gear seems familiar because it is gear that was once seen back in the day.
This Dimension took Mobile Strike back to the basics, however, with the addition of a Mech. Here you will see lower VIP, Base Levels, Commander Levels, and less stuff in general then you would see in the Cybernetic Dimension.
Articles to Help get you on your Feet in the Mech Dimension
So if you are in the Mech Dimension where do you start and how do you build your stats? As a new player what are the most important things to focus on? I have a few articles that can help you start to build up and have a strong account in the Mech Dimension.
The first article I am going to recommend that you read is an article that discusses the different styles of players in Mobile Strike. Before you can even decide how to start building you must know who you are as a player.
The next article I am going to recommend is part of an in-progress series. However, do not dig too deep into this series yet if you are worried about being overwhelmed. This article will help you with the basics of what stats are what and how to use them.
Next, we are going to talk about how to prioritize when you are building. Part 1 of the next three-part series specifically addresses New or Returning players and how to get a solid start and build up your base. Once you have a solid start feel free to go back and read part 2 and 3 that address more specific playstyles.
Finally, for beginners in the Mech Dimension, I am going to recommend an article that talks about how to stay safe in the Mech Dimension. This article covers safety for every type of player from beginner to more advanced.
Navigating the Cybernetic Dimension
If you are in the Cybernetic Dimension you will not have a little Mech in the right-hand corner of your city. The Cybernetic Dimension has been around slightly longer than the Mech Dimension and your Cybernetic account might look something like this:
History of the Cybernetic Dimension
The Cybernetic Dimension came about a few months earlier than Mech in 2018. This feature essentially changed all we knew about Mobile Strike. One Cybernetic troop could one-hit zero an account that was loaded with troops that were released before Cybernetic. After almost five years of Mobile Strike, players saw this as a reset to older ways. Over time things have continued to evolve in the Cybernetic Dimension.
Many players have continued to enjoy this dimension and the intricacies of the features that are available there. The Cybernetic Dimension tends to be faster-paced than the Mech Dimension which is a huge draw to many players who choose to play there.
Articles to help you get on your feet in the Cybernetic Dimension
These articles will help you get going in the Cybernetic Dimension so that you can build up to compete with your alliance there.
The first article I will recommend again is the same one I recommended for the Mech Dimension. Knowing what type of player you want to be is essential to start building up in the Cybernetic Dimension.
The next article I will recommend is an article that talks about stats in the Cybernetic Dimension. This article defines the stats that are available and how they work. This article will help you with understanding what some of the terminology you are working with means.
The third article I will recommend is an article that talks about safety in the Cybernetic Dimension. This article will help you to ensure that you remain safe when you are building and as a more advanced player.
Navigating Spending in Mobile Strike
If you choose to spend in Mobile Strike there are ways that you can make it feel more affordable. While Mobile Strike can feel expensive there are ways to lessen that cost and some of the ways provided in the articles listed below are tricks and tips we have picked up over years of playing. I wish I had known some of this when I first started.
One of those methods is by using Amazon Coins. We have an article about Amazon Coins that will help you to navigate the use of these and explore the cost.
However, we also have multiple articles that explore how to stretch your packs the furthest. Or even how to enjoy Mobile Strike as a Free to Play, Player.
This article focuses on the Mech Dimension, However, it is important to note that many of the principles in it are also applicable to the Cybernetic Dimension. That makes this article a great read for every type of player.
This next article talks about players who choose not to spend or are very low spenders and making the most out of your game. Once again this article focuses largely on the Mech Dimension however, the principles found within it can be applied to the Cybernetic Dimension as well.
Wrapping it Up
