Resources

Requisition Points
You require Requisition Points to build basic buildings, infantry units, purchase vehicle upgrades, and more. To gather Requisition Points, you need to capture the Resource Points and build Requisition Generators on them.

Power
You require Power to purchase vehicles, upgrades, advanced buildings, and units. To gather Power, you need to capture the Resource Points and build Power Generators on them.

Elite Points
You require Elite Points to unlock Elites in addition to activating Super Abilities and continue to earn them during the course of a match – one Elite Point every two minutes into the match. However, you can also acquire additional Elite Points by destroying the Shield Generators and Turrets. Moreover, you can also build an Elite Point Generator on a Resource Point with an Elite Node. Doing this will net you an Elite Point every 90 seconds.

Finding and Upgrading Resource Points

You can use the mini-map to see the locations of the Resource Points. Pay attention to the mini-map and you should also see two or three little dots next to a Resource Point – usually in purple, yellow, and blue colors. These colored dots indicate the Resource Generator that you can build on top of a Resource Point.

After building a Resource Generator on a Resource Point, you gain the option to upgrade it for 250 Requisition and 50 Power. There are three upgrades in total and each upgrade provides an additional 25% income from the resources. When combined with Escalation Phases, you should easily have enough resources to sustain your army in the late game.
