Tips for Rail Nation: Clash!

Make the most of each game round

You have 5 game rounds every day that influence your place in the rankings. You should make sure you use every game round if you intend to stay ahead of your rivals.

Maintain your speed

You can send your engine from one station to the next without losing speed or stopping. While your engine is in transit, simply click on the second industry before it reaches the first industry. This allows you to shave seconds off your overall time, which could make the difference between a win or loss at the end of the game.

Reset rival progress

Sometimes it makes more sense not to concentrate on the next good, but instead actively reset your rival’s progress by crossing their line. Depending on the situation, this could help you collect points more safely.

Reset your own progress

It can even be helpful to reset your own progress in some instances. For example, if a good appears in the direct vicinity of your own city, you could get there more quickly by resetting, rather than by traveling all the way back.

Head-on collisions

Using head-on collisions is also a strategy. For instance, if you see that a rival will reset your progress by crossing your line after collecting a good, you could make them suffer the same fate by turning around and going for a head-on collision, preventing them from collecting other goods. This approach can be particularly useful against a rival in the lead.

Length of route sections

The diagonal stretches on the map are a little bit shorter than the horizontal routes. In a neck-and-neck race, choosing the right route can make all the difference.

We wish you lots of fun and travel safely!
The Rail Nation Team
