View Full Version : Home city, not getting any cards.

01-10-2012, 04:47 AM
I'm playing the single player campaign on easy and I'm not getting any crads to upgrade my home city. When I played the how to play "try a game" at the end it said when you win games you get cards to upgrade your tech tree/city.

I've played about 5 missions ( still on easy ) from the single player campaign, my home city is level 4 and I never get any cards after a mission.

Are the cards a reward for multiplayer only?
Do I have to get my city to higher level to start getting cards?
What am I missing please?

Every time you level up your home city, you get a new card.

I've not got any :(
Clicking the spend cards button doesn't do anything :(

Just try to get it to level 5 and see if you get any cards. You level up your city by earning XP (if you didn't know that yet).

Oh, and IIRC, you don't get new cards the first few levels. You start getting them when you can receive shipments from Malta.

Thanks for the reply. That fits, I probably need to get a little further first.

It's been so long since I've played this I got caught out by this as well. In the campaign you just have to wait for a few missions before you can get cards.

Don't forget you also need to unlock the cards and build a deck.

No matter if you're playing the campaign or a skirmish match, you need a level 5 city to unlock the lowest tier cards. If I remember correctly, you need levels 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, etc. to unlock certain cards. If you enable the detailed info feature (under options menu) you can see the prerequisites for each card by hovering the mouse over the card you want.
