Some noob questions

How much infrastructure should I buy at one time? I'm saving up to buy 100 at once, is that the most efficient method? What about land?

 

Should I be collecting tax only when I can't afford to pay bills? IE save up tax for the 12% interest and collect it all at once.

 

I'm worried about getting attacked. I have 2000 soldiers and 20 tanks, is this enough? My nation strength is 1,852.000.

 

Thanks!

Why don't you join an AA? More specifically NPL. I'll be your mentor and guide you through everything. And dont worry, you won't be attacked

Best way for any new player to learn is to join an experienced alliance.

To answer your questions: I do advise keeping it at an X.99 level.
IE: 9.99, 99.99, 199.99, 299.99, 999.99, 1999.99, etc.
Reason being, every time you pass that 99, your bills will increase by larger amounts. By not having that extra .01 you get the benefit without the cost.
Its best to buy infra in jumps so your bills aren't so expensive in comparison to taxes.
IE:
If I have 999.99 infra, Idealy, Id want to wait until I can buy 1000 more, or at least 600.

Idealy, you only want to collect taxes every 20 days but no later.
Your taxes will cap at 20 days and your nation will go inactive after 25 days, so male sure you collect every 20 days. However, that doesn't mean collecting every 20 days is always the best way to go. Some alliances do trade swapping circles which give you a cycle of collecting/paying bills.

If you're afraid of being attacked, join an alliance. There are many rogues out there who know how to war and it won't matter how many soldiers or tanks you have if.they can out spend you or are much bigger. Edited by Fox Fire

Not quite correct; it is a good general rule to follow, but these upkeep 'spikes' only occur at certain levels; aside from those levels the increase is rather linear.

 

These spikes occur at 1000, 3000, 4000, 5000, 6000, 8000 and 15.000 infra

 

 

As for purchasing infra, purchasing it 100 at the time is the most efficient method.

 

 

In regards to saving up for the interest, you shouldn't need to do that; start tech trading and back collecting (I'll leave explaining that to the alliance you join, but I would recommend you stop purchasing anything and collecting taxes until you get it explained to you)

 

 

Finally, re: getting attacked, I would sell those tanks; the upkeep means that its not worth it and, really, a few thousand soldiers and tanks are not going to deter a raider unless they are also new.
However, I would agree with the others on joining an alliance; it is the best method to prevent attacks
Naturally, I would recommend the New Pacific Order; you can find her forums here: http://cn.npowned.net/

If you don't feel Pacifica is for you, then I would suggest joining an alliance of at least 50 members; less than that and they will struggle to both defend you and teach you about the game
