Hey guys, Was thinking about upgrading the Dock while it's 25% off.

Has anybody taken this to max level yet? Are the rewards worth it?

It's pretty hard to get supplies at level 9, so definitely don't wanna make that worse...

Level 10 dock is better than level 9 for supplies if you are only taking expeditions with supplies.

Unfortunately I upgraded dock to level 8 long ago before I learned that this is the most stupid thing to in Dominations.
As soon as 4 workers are available I'll go for Dock lvl 9 and 10. Still worse than 7, but better than 8.

I would love to get a downgrade button. Nexon can keep the resources I spent for lvl 8, no problem for me. I would even spend oil to burn the building.
Or better: They could make the supplies for expeditions more random.

Wow Cannibals! Great analysis!
Am not sure I'm understanding this correctly tho???
Are you saying that a level 6 dock produces nearly 4x as many supplies as a level 8 dock???
And that same level 6 dock produces nearly 2x as many supplies as a level 10 dock???
Seriously?!?!
That can't be true, can it?

That’s my take on it ... the dock drops the same supplies at level 6 and 7, and then takes a serious nosedive at level 8 but for far fewer citizens. Then it gets incrementally better as you upgrade to 9 and 10.

question for those that know...

What about NTGs? Going from level 8 to Level 9 dock loses cheese reward. Will level 10 lose scrolls or salt? If yes then level 10 is a no go.

Thanks for the link @arminius
I'd missed this from @tinsoldier

Has anybody actually upgraded their Dock to level 10?
I'm not sure I believe Tin's table (it's gotta be a typo with placeholders, right?)

Are they really giving out WW2 era zero fighters as rewards for completing cold war era expeditions
Seriously?!?!

And only one expedition returns Museum supplies?
Are Mumbai's trade goods NTGs? Or just the easy stuff?

Would love to hear from somebody who's actually upgraded... Anyone?

You make me laugh. 😄
Mainly l don't want to jeopardise my regular supply of NATO and ROK troops. Glad they're still part of LVL 10.

The table is correct. Yes, you get 2 zeroes, but those are weak troop cards, not usable in WWs. Mumbai provides trade goods, but takes 3 people for more than a day, so it’s not worth it. Yes, you loose expeditions providing NTGs. The benefit is that with 10 level dock you have two expeditions giving air superiority blessing.

I have upgraded it. Tin's table is exactly correct. I was also shocked to see the different expeditions giving out two zeros, which were already global age rewards. And two of them are identical - same stupid 55 benefactors and 2 zeros.

The zeros are decent throw one for multiplayer battles, to absorb a Sam battery or two. But stupid that they didn't give us new, cold war unique cars with all the effort they put into cards for sale every day. The good atomic ones are still the best you can get.

and they’re WW2 era Japanese fighters as rewards from cold war era expeditions to Jamaican, Russian, and Taiwanese ports.

this is like the French enlightenment UU being the keshik, or the Egyptian coalition troops being cossacks.

when they create a bunch of bugs with an update, they’re being incompetent but they mean well. but with this, they dont mean well and they dont care. in one of their past streams they have said they were all history nerds at bhg, but history nerds would not do this.

The best dock level depends on your playing style. Personally, I keep two workers free to gather resources, upgrade walls, and send on expeditions. I only do the expeditions that give supplies in 6 hours.

At a level 7 dock, I can get 15 or 23 supplies per trip. The level 8 dock is actually better than level 7 for this style of play because it gives 23 or 34 per trip. Level 10 is vastly superior because it gives 51 or 60.

I haven't upgraded the Dock to CWA level and I'm not going to do this even if they offer this for free. Dock citizens requirements are too high and the rewards advertised are a waste. I'll stick to AA level and I wish I had the option to reverse it to lower Ages, too!

Having upgraded the dock to level 10, compared to the care and effort put into previous dock levels, this has proven a disappointment. Unique units, age specific to the dock level or other rewards have previously had some relation to the expedition destination, something apparently ignored in this update.

I appreciate there’s a desire to control supplies volumes, so I won’t waste time asking for more of that. However at the very least the reparative nature of some of these expeditions (Melbourne/Helsinki, Port of Antonio/Novo) warrants adjustment. Mumbai for 6 trade goods (anyone with this level dock already has more benefactors than they’ll ever use) is very poor value. Swap trade goods for ntg’s and you would be on the right track.

If ideas are needed, open a thread and generate some positivity on this subject, we all love to feel involved in the games development much like with the video rewards feedback you sought. I’d like to see Antonio offer a Jamaican Coast Guard unit (a tactical Helicopter and a few marines perhaps?) Many others will no doubt have some great pitches too.
