Introduction

Resources are the currency used by both the Marine and Alien teams to perform game-play actions. They are gathered by building an Alien Harvester or a Marine Extractor on a Resource Node. There are two types of usable resources: Team and Personal Resources, also knows as TRes and PRes, respectively.

Resources are the most important aspect of the game, the team that controls the most resources for the longest period of time, will be able to advance to greater Weapons / Lifeforms and unlock upgrades to defeat the enemy team very quickly.

Personal Resources

Personal Resources (or PRes)

  • are awarded to a player every 6 seconds at a rate of 0.125 per each fully built & active Harvester or Extractor.
  • can be saved up for expensive purchases but are capped at 100. After 100 PRes has been accumulated, any extra resources are lost.

Usage

  • is the players individual share of the resources gained by the team and are used to purchase bigger and better Lifeforms for Aliens and Powerful Weapons and Technology for Marines.

Team Resources

Team Resources (or TRes) is used extensively by the Commanders on both teams.

Commander can spend TRes on multiple aids for their team including, but not limited to;

Recycle enables the Marine Commander to return a portion of Team Resources by recycling a structure. The recycling process lasts a short duration, after which a maximum of 75% Team Resources used to create the structure is refunded. However, the amount of Team Resources refunded depends on the remaining health of the structure on recycle completion. The higher the structure's health, the more resources are refunded.
