Due to a new weapon modification and character system we had to reset the servers and clear the database. So this means that your earned gold and credits are gone, but bought gold, War Bonds or gold earned by War Bonds should still remain. If not, then please contact support.

A new batch of Beta-keys is coming up quite soon, and we’ll also run a new stress test as soon as we have fixed the most grave bugs on Bradley. It’s our goal to have the community grow quite a bit over the coming months, so next week, we’re preparing a major PR push, which hopefully will attract a lot of new players.

Starting next week we’ll also send the weekly Intelligence Bulletin (you’re reading one now) by email to those interested. So if you want the latest development news to hit your inbox each week, then go to your Account settings, press ‘Change account settings’, check ‘I want to receive weekly development updates’ and press save!

You gain credits through each Battle you go through, you obtain a certain amount of credits and you can buy an Assault Squad which can consist of Infantry Battalions, Tank Battalions, Airborne Battalions... but of course each Battalion requires a different set of credits
