OverviewEditThe Academy is unlocked at level 11. This structure provides the ability to research formations and upgrades that boost your whole army. To access researches, either click on the academy or the Hero button at the bottom of the screen, and click the research tab.
In-depthEditFormations and attack & defense researches are just as key a part of winning as equipment quality and upgrade level are. You should always aim to have a cooldown running on research in the academy.
No matter your formation or hero composition, upgrade all of the defensive researches. Depending on your hero composition, always upgrade the +attack research that benefits you.
When you reach a point of excess Battle Points, spend it on the researches you've neglected.
