There are three main types of Resources in War Commander: Rogue Assault:
- Metal: Used to build, upgrade, promote or deploy just about everything in the game. If it isn't a repair, you probably need some Metal for it. This is also the only resource that can be "stolen" from you via PVP.
- Oil: Used mainly for repairing Units; currently they only consistent way to earn Oil is to produce it on our base, though you can purchase it in the Black Market via gold as well. Oil is also used to move your base and attack targets in War Zones
- Thorium: Super Resource that is used to build, upgrade, and promote more advanced units/buildings and is typically not regularly required until later in the game around the time you each CC LV 6.
