Answer from: Wheat.HHi Tap2775 You obtain merits by attacking other players bases at a level close to your own. For example if you are a Level 7 player, try attacking level 4, 5 or 6 players nearby and you will receive merits. It is advisable to avoid punching above your weight by attacking (using the same example) Level 8, 9 or 10 players as you will lose power, lose troops and resources. Try to engage in the world chat, be friendly, join alliances and build your power through harvesting resources, building your base, and playing through the missions. Good luck!.
