Breeding Castle/Incubator Levels 11 & 12: The Hump

When I was upgrading my Breeding Castle and Incubator through levels 11 and 12, I seemed to run into a roadblock. I didn’t know whether I’d failed to grow in a balanced way or something was screwy with the game.

It turns out, it was the latter. There is a huge jump in the Base and Storage Hut requirements in levels 11 & 12. Here’s the chart:

Breeding Castle/Incubator Level Base Level Base Level Jump Storage Hut Level Storage Hut Level Jump
1 1 1
2 7 6 2 1
3 17 10 4 2
4 28 11 7 3
5 40 12 11 4
6 63 23 19 8
7 90 27 23 4
8 108 18 23 0
9 108 0 23 0
10 130 22 23 0
11 182 52 54 31
12 280 98 81 27
13 360 80 87 6
14 400 40 93 6
15 435 35 98 5
16 468 33 94 -4
17 495 27 94 0
18 506 11 94 0
19 520 14 94 0
20 540 20 94 0
21 560 20 94 0

I don’t know if this has been pointed out before, but now it seems so obvious.

The solution seems to be to focus a couple of seasons on timers, timers, timers, until you get through it.

Thoughts?

The gap really isn’t an issue, just don’t fall behind on your storage hut. You can go from level 180 to 280 in like 2 forts pretty easily

It happens because towers were discounted (in wood and time requirements) but base buildings weren’t. If you upgrade storage when you can vs when you have to, you won’t run into a problem, but the timers needed for storage vs the perceived advantage of upgrading storage :woman_facepalming:

NOW you tell me! If I’d had the info ahead of time, I would have seen this coming. Now it’s just another problem to solve.

Or just one fort…lol

Now you get to be that person for someone else if you still have lower levels on your team :grinning: It’s really helpful to have growing levels above and below you to see and learn to avoid these bumps

Lol I remember this. I made the dumb mistake of not upgrading my storage hut unless I needed to until I was behind like 45ish levels. I did the electrum line for timers and I was able to get through it in one fort. Oculus line is another good one.

Went from 280 to 400 in one fort, not hard at low tiers with the discounts. It’s annoying when you run out of timers and encounter it, just make sure you and your friend are aware of it.

Welcome to the last remnants of the very old 300 wall. Towers and player xp got adjusted, but main base buildings did not.

Thanks! You’re the first person who acknowledged that there is actually an issue and that my situation is not the result of my moral failure.

I’ll focus on timers this season and hope to have some sigils left over for a dragon.
