I'd like to thank the Academy (that I built to tech up, only to fall 1 short on resources) that caused me to go on a rampage, also Afrit for being a massive douche and repeatedly attacking me until all I had left was Cannons and Saiph for losing to me in combat.
I too got a hull upgrade. Screenshot for proof . Also playing the game is hard on my phone. I can not seem to find a way to turn off the one handed controls so attempting to scroll up and down instead zooms in and out on my phone. Which sucks since you can not scroll if you click on the game itself. Also you end up opening up a lot of help tabs from missclicks. Oh well you do end up getting used to it.
