Empires & Allies Survival Mode: Everything you need to know

Empires Allies Survival ModeThe amount of features available in Empires & Allies now is almost getting ridiculous. Zynga recently introduced Survival Mode to the game through the War Room building, and it's said to pay tribute to the classic arcade game days. The feature, which pits players against wave after wave of enemies using just one squad of five units, is on a slow roll-out (of course). But once it becomes available to you, it's time to place and build the War Room, which requires zero materials to complete.

Once you finish the War Room for a few Energy, click on it to take your first crack at survival mode. Sergeant Cross will prompt you to choose five units wisely, as the feature essentially puts normal combat on loop, but without the breaks. That means all weaknesses and strengths are accounted for, so choose a varied squad. After you successfully defeat each wave, you'll earn rewards.
Survival Mode continue?
You can pause the Survival Mode battle at any time, but the only way to start over is to lose. But when you do lose all of your five units (which are reportedly gone forever) to the hordes of enemies that steadily grow more deadly, you're given the option to continue from the wave you failed on for 10 Empire Points. Of course, the rewards you would have scored are dangled in front of you as a classic timer ticks down. There's not much else to the Survival Mode--at least it serves as a diversion from the all but defunct Campaign Mode.
