When it comes to resources, you have a few options, each of them with advantages and disadvantages.

If you are a new player you have to decide:
1. Go for quick production: build normal bases, not mines. They need less resources to upgrade, so you'll produce more in short term than with mines. They are safe to keep with the current rules, as nobody is able to take them. This is a good strategy if you plan to fight as quick as possible, especially in the beginning of the season.

2. Go for slower production, but with increase rate in the future. You need to build mines for this, as they will produce more resources when upgraded to maximum. Use this strategy if you have no enemies and you don't plan to make quick attacks. On the long run you will produce more than your targets and you can prepare a big invasion.

Manage resources based on the timing of the season

Market credits are not a feature to be ignored. You should not have too many bases producing something cheap. There are a few trends which you can follow:
- in the beginning of the season you need to produce more bricks. You need them for upgrades and also you can exchange them for Market credits and buy the other type of resources as they tend to be cheaper than the price of bricks (e.g. for 100 Market credits you might use 20 K bricks, and you can buy 21K food).
- soon after the beginning of the season, you should slowly make a transition from bricks to other resources, check which one is increasing the price to buy
- after the middle of the season you rarely need bricks, so ideally, all your bricks bases should be dismantled and replaced with resources you need for armies. If you need bricks, you can alway buy with market credits and for 100 K food exchanged in credits you might get 150 bricks (or even double towards the end of the season)

Robbing enemies
If you want to produce resources by robbing enemies, you can try to be safe by sending only the number of units which can steal the maximum. The number of resources you can steal from every base is:
- 5000 from bronze
- 8000 from silver
- 12000 from gold

Tips for stealing:
- you don't always have enough spies, so try to send the minimum units which can steal the maximum from that base, in case it is defended you don't too much (what is the purpose in stealing 12 K resources if you lose army you spent 50K on it?)
- you can only attack a player 15 times, so don't attack without enough units to steal the maximum from that base

Units for stealing:
- 1 Chinook can steal 75, that means you need to send: 77 for bronze, 107 for silver, 160 for gold
- 1 Charles Gaulle can steal 500 resources, so you need to send: 10 for bronze, 16 for silver, 24 for gold

You can find how much 1 unit can steal by checking the statistics:

Nice job AngrySuzako hey ChillTime see that is the right way to explain the game you should explain like this in your help section e.g how many attacks u can do on a player how many base conquers or destroy etc etc bravo AngrySuzako nice done
It's in our plans to launch an improved version of the Attack History, which should be one of our priorities after we launch the new Battle Engine :)
