April 13th – Cores Highlighted
Cores are a carry-over from Game of War, and essentially, cores are time-limited, bare-bones frames that you add attachments to to increase their combat or economic power. Once equipped, a timer begins and the core “breaks” or “burns out” at the end of that timer. They can stay in your inventory indefinitely, space dependent, until they are first equipped, however.
