Set in a world of Zombie Apocalypse, State of Survival is a strategy survival game. There are lots of fun for hardcore or casual players alike. Casual players can follow these tips to progress steadily at your own pace.
Join An Active Alliance
State of Survival is a team game so joining an active alliance will help you progress much faster and also more fun. There are numerous events which must be done as a team like the Plague Zone and Reservoir Raid just to name a few. Also alliance members can help shorten your upgrade and troop training time. This is especially important for earlier levels as the construction time is so short that upgrades could be completed right away with alliance members’ help and you can continue to upgrade the next building or research next item.
Make sure your builders are always working on a building as you will want to always growing. During the earlier levels, buildings will take not more than a few hours to upgrade so it’s important to constantly upgrade during this time. Also your research and troop training should be constantly working.
Collect Daily Rewards
There are many daily rewards which refresh daily at UTC 0. Some rewards need you to do simple tasks which you could complete just by playing like the Daily Rewards mission in Missions tab. Others are free like the first item in store which will refresh daily. There are more free daily rewards in the Bundles tab and you do not need to spend anything to get these rewards.
Participate in Events
As noted above, events will give you good rewards. Sometimes there would be two or even more events running concurrently so keep an eye on the tasks for each event. There might be similar tasks for events and you could kill two birds with one stone. As a casual player you do not need to aim for the ranking rewards and just casually do these events to get milestone rewards once you reach certain point target which award biocaps and some other items.
Use Up Your Stamina
Your chief stamina will gradually replenish over time. Try not to have a full bar of stamina as this will stop your stamina from replenishing. Instead, always use up your stamina to do Intel missions, hit infected, rally infected fiends or doing plague zone with alliance members. The Intel missions will refresh every 8 hours. Doing Intel gives better rewards than normal infected so always do the Intel missions.
Apart from chief stamina, your squad stamina will replenish over time too. Try to use your squad stamina to complete explore missions which will increase your hero exp as long as they are not at max level. Doing explore missions also have other rewards like resources, combat manual, hero badge, and skill book.
Spend Your Biocaps Wisely
Biocaps is the in game currency. As a casual player, you will still be able to amass quite some Biocaps by just doing daily events as advised above. Same as your other items in backpack, try not to simply spend it all. *DO NOT use Biocaps to speedup as reducing construction time, research or troop training time costs too many Biocaps. Instead use it on items which are hard to obtain in game or are absolutely necessary:
- Chief Gear items if you are short of a few for upgrade especially when these items appear in Daily Deals shop with a discount.
- Ray’s Place event to at least get to the 15th or 35th spin bonus to get Legendary hero.
- Value Voucher event which gives you a chance to choose which Legendary hero fragment to exchange for.
- Settlement buffs can be activated through your Headquarter building using Biocaps if you don’t have the buff item. Some buffs are necessary before a PvP event like the recon jammer and some buffs are very worthy to activate like the gathering buff when you are short on resources.
You will get more value from Biocaps when using it together with an event which require you to spend Biocaps like the Throwdown event.
