UPGRADES | A Guide to Axis and Allies RTS Upgrades
What, When, and Where to Upgrade
Upgrades can make the difference in many aspects of Axis and Allies, but players must first understand the benefits of the various upgrades, and learn which ones to get first, and which ones to skip.
The upgrades which any given player will research, depends mostly three basic factors:
General/Country: Which general/nation a player chooses (or is assigned) will largely control which regiments will be produced, and therefore have a large influence on which upgrades will be researched (the first research for Britian, Japan, and Russia will usually be Military Surplus)
Game Situation: No sense in upgrading your infantry if they are outnumbered 3 to 1... Match your opponent in numbers, before spending money on upgrades (except for production upgrades). Many other factors can effect when you get your upgrades (such as being on point, the type of enemy troops you are facing, etc.. ) Regiments Deployed: A simple concept here, don't research upgrades that have no effect the regiments you have in the field, or are planning to produce WARNING! Very important that the first thing you do in online play is to deploy a few recon ASAP, to capture as many nearby cities as you can, especially that city in front of your base! Don't worry about upgrades until you have captured and secured those cities!
About Our Guide ~ Upgrades
The approach we took with our Guide to Axis & Allies upgrades, was to create several guides, one for each of the most common types of regiments deployed (see #3 above)
Keep in mind these are generalized guides that will need to be adjusted depending on General/Country, Game Situation, Terrain, and personal preference (as well as many other factors). However, the should help to educate newer players to many aspects of Axis & Allies upgrades.
