Levels are obtained by upgrading things such as defenses, resources and other buildings such as War Academy, Troops, Generals and Library.

Levels are used to be able to upgrade your Town Center.

Unlike Clash of Clans, you don't get Experience Points from clearing Obstacles or donating troops to Allies.

Levels also indicate how strong and capable a player is.

There is a glitch where whenever you upgrade your roads, you gain more levels than usual due to a glitch where you receive XP points for every Road you have.
