credits[edit | edit source]
beyond being needed in building and upgrading those buildings, credits offer a wide variety of uses, besides upgrade for equipment it can be used to upgrade fleet ships and bribe other cities. the player also looses a amount relative to the level of the ship he or she uses when they die in the game, its also possible to gain credits from winning a war or loosing them from war, the amount of credits one has can go into the minus for reviving or loosing a war when they dont have those, however its not possible to repair the fleet they are using or to buy resources.
