You are aware that energon acquisition from enemy bases is dependent on the target player having stocked up enough of a reserve to confisicate? I know for a fact it is possible to get 100k minimum from a level 1300 base if they have the surplus. But it looks like they made sure to spend it all before I arrived, so that's why my returns have been so low lately. Even Team Prime targeting Level 2000 bases has only gotten 30k on average and that's on a good run, which most of them aren't. My defense upgrades are costing me aroundabout 2000k now, so it's irrevalent wanting or needing to upgrade my teams, as I can't do it anyway. I can have stronger bots or stronger defences to keep Cons from stealing my energon, I can't have both. And they've been taking energon about as fast as I can earn it lately, so that is also a factor limiting my progression.
