Tokens, Red (Supporter Tokens) or Blue (Bonus Tokens), are used to purchase Battle Dawn boosts. Boosts are advantages you can redeem in-game via the "boost" menu in the top left hand corner.
Red/Supporter Tokens: Supporter tokens are tokens that are purchasable via the "Buy Tokens" menu (See the section below for a table of packages). Some boosts can only be bought with these red tokens. Supporters do have the option to give red tokens to any other player on a world they are playing on via the profile page.
These tokens are given out to players for certain things and CANNOT be traded. A player receives 100 bonus tokens on completing the tutorial (for the first time only) and gaining 20 power (for the first time only). You can also gain bonus tokens for competing in staff/community events, helping Battle Dawn in some way or anything else the administrators deem worthy such as notifying the admin of a player/alliance you suspect of cheating/exploiting in some way. Another way to earn bonus tokens is by referring players to the game, using your personal referral link. You get 20% of the first token package they buy in bonus tokens, so if they buy a 3000 red token package you would get 600 blue tokens. Finally, you gain bonus tokens by unlocking achievements during play, each being worth 50 blue tokens. Bonus tokens can only be used to buy certain boosts, but are certainly very useful! Achievements can only be earned once on an account and show up in all worlds you play.

The world administrator may decide to add a 'discount' to the price of boosts in his/her world. The world's discount is displayed below the 'Boost' button. The range of discounts during game-play varies from 0-20 percent. During havoc there are usualy large discounts of 80% or more. Note that discounts do not effect the price of which tokens are bought at, rather the amount of tokens it costs to purchace a boost. For example:
Without any discount a light metal boost will cost 100 tokens.
With a 10% discount the light metal boost will cost 90 tokens
