Anomaly Decay

Anomaly Decay

Anomaly Decay

The Anomaly Decay is one of the main technology among other Special Technologies in the Evolution: Battle for Utopia game.


Anomalies appear only in Terraformed areas and give Resources when collected.

Anomalies always appear right after a location is terraformed. Otherwise, they appear to show seemingly randomly after a certain amount of play time. The more sectors you have terraformed the better chances of getting an Anomaly event.


By upgrading the Anomaly Decay technology, you increase amount and quality of the Resources collected.

To research next level of the Anomaly Decay technology the previous one have to be researched.

Currently level 5 is the highest Anomaly Decay level you can obtain.

    Wow! It can give gems?? 😮

    • avatar deepspace ( Private Private Player's Rank 1 )

      Yes it does give gems 😉 morw you play more you get it. I have counted once around 10 gems in a day. Youwont play so much everyday so chances for gems are also reduced.

      Once you research L5, there’s a small chance you get gems as a reward.
      I postponed researching the L5 advancement because the description is quite misleading. I can no longer quote it verbatim now but it was worded like researching L5 would lower the chances of getting gems as reward. while the opposite is true: researching L5 anomaly decay enables a “small” chance to get gems at each occurring event. However small, 1-2 gems per event isn’t that bad at all!

      BTW, the ‘Anomalies have been detected’ event is absolutely my most favorite event in the game… Chasing them is soooo fun 😀

        I also agree with the wording used. It leads to some confusion. It says something like “Low probability of getting gems”… “There will be a small probability of getting gems” would be much more appropriate!

    This random encounter and the home base attack are the only encounters I have. I don’t have dominator or Overlord or Merchant encounters anymore, why??

  3. avatar psb ( Sublieutenant Sublieutenant Player's Rank 104 )

    if u have reached dominion territory, dominator invasion stops i think… the story progresse like that… but merchant and overlords do not stop… maybe u r missing them!!

    I also love the anomalies, honestly they really help stock up on your resources so upgrading asap is really important. I researched my Lv. 5 this evening and just in the past 6 hours of gameplay I have collected 32 gems plus tons of the other resources as well!! My husband who has been playing longer then I have upgraded his anomalies to Lv.5 I believe 2 days ago, and since this morning he has collected right at 100 gems. Normally where we both work we can’t put in as many hours of gameplay as what we did today so i am assuming acquiring the gems is based on how long you are playing in a day. Point is, for sure worth researching asap, but personally my husband and I did wait to get our 20% discount, it’s really worth the wait and does not take no where near as long as you make think to acquire the discount. Have fun!!!!

      I wonder why it shows Private, and that I have only 1 badge. Is it showing that pertaining to how many times I post in this forum??

      • avatar Sugarman ( Sergeant Sergeant Player's Rank 31 )

        Your rank is related to your post number.
        Regarding gems, one easy and relatively cheap way to get gems is to do a couple of missile strikes a day to level 4 missions. 10 gems per strike, and costs you 300 fuel, 300 magmatite and 300 steel whereas attacking at that level makes you consume much more resources as grenades and health packs and winning is difficult.

    Thanks for the tip, I did not know that but I’ve also never used my missile on any missions just on the Denominator or that big spider that intrudes on my village every day or so, and actually I think I’ve only used it once on the spider because the pay out is for sure not worth it. But anyway thank you for the tip, makes me wonder what kind of pay out I would get using it more often on different npc’s, etc!!!!

    • avatar Tina ( Private Private Player's Rank 5 )

      Ok now I understand what you meant by your comment, you have 2000 plus ranking points and for every Terror Lv. 4 that you defeat you get 10 gems from it, I honestly have no idea what I thought you meant, I guess I thought that you meant just for using the ICBM on the Terror Lv. 4 that you get 10 gems plus your reward, lol. But anyway still thanks for the tip, and your right in the aspect that it is easier, but me I prefer to fight!!!!!

    Hello! Does anyone still play this game? I’ve been playing a few months and just built the embassy. Looking for friends to dd to get rewards.

    • avatar zZoNe ( Private Private Player's Rank 2 )

      Hey Will, I am still actively playing. I haven’t built the embassy yet, but I can if you want to add me.
