Congratulations! you have completed your first campaign. So far what we have learned are:
     - Battles are automatic and cards are taken from the squads randomly.
     - Shows how Damage and Health of each unit clash each other.
     - Replacing cards from squads to counter certain cards.
     - Replacing cards from squads to avoid enemy card's effects.
     - Adding new squad and using all squads as one.
     - A Squad must share only one Faction.
     - Units with card effects such as Trample, Regenerate, Heal and Retaliate.

       As the game goes, from here on you will encounter lots of different cards that can be added to your squad. Every player gets his or her own cards from many sources like gifts from friends or treasure troves. Remember that not all of your friends or other players around your level, have the same cards like yours. The more friends you have, the more cards you can horde.
       For this guide, I will use common cards that is attainable from campaigns.

       You have completed your first three campaigns with the help of tips before the fight page. From here on, there will be no more tips page available before the fight and you have to figure all out how to win your battles. Don't worry, losing doesn't have any penalties plus you'll get some practice.

       I'm sure while playing through the campaigns, you got lots of different cards from different sources like treasure coves, gifts and more. Build your own unique squads with your heroes and units available and win campaigns to conquer territories , battle with your friends or complete challenges, fend off invasions to protect your earnings and more.

       Earn silvers or cash and purchase more cards at the Shop. Buy faction packs or pre-built squads to unlock Orc, Demon and Undead factions. You can also get Warstorm cash from treasure troves and gifts to be able to purchase and unlock more campaigns.

       Buy elf packs at the shop (5000 silvers) and try to create at least 4 elf squads as a start.

       Well' that's it, and I'm sorry I will no longer make guides for the next campaigns because first, it will take out all the fun and second there are so many ways to achieve victory in a single battle. Just experiment with your squads, and make them as one united squad. Good Luck and Thank You.
