***WARNING***
Warzone has a major update on Aug. 9, 2021. Below is the changelog.
https://www.warzone.com/ChangeLog/5.14.0.htm

All information below might be inaccurate.



The upgrade cost of an army camp or a mine at level n + 1 is 1.8 times that at level n, when n is large enough.

For mines, this formula works when n >= 4.

Disclaimer: This formula is based on the upgrade costs of early army camps and mines that I gathered till the level Copper Creek Castle. The formula for later army camps, mine, or levels could be different.

@riskboy88: Can you be more specific?

What he's saying is this;

If a mine L4 upgrade costs 4M, L5 will cost 4M*1.8=7.2M.

A corollary of this formula is an upper bound of army camp levels. Assuming that the upgrade cost is stored in a 64-bit integer, then the levels of army camps are capped at 75. The actual max level may depend on the level and camp, and I would guess it is capped around 50.

I would be very surprised if anyone can get a max level army camp (not the supercamp), except on Tutorial.

Edit: For those who are interested, the max level of the regular army camp on Tutorial is 8. A new player can max it in 15 minutes.

For science, just now I upgraded my starting army camp in Africa to lv25. It can still be upgraded.

Given that there are so many instances where you get .4 ores per second or .7 money per second, and such, I wouldn't be surprised if most of the values are actually floating-point units. Then, even knowing the bit-size wouldn't tell you much. They can store (almost) arbitrary large numbers. They just get more and more imprecise. But does it really matter whether a 1B upgrade costs 1B or 1B and 1??

I agree that there is probably some upper limit to army camps like there is one for mines. But I wouldn't derive this from a (arbitrary) technical assumption that I personally would want to challenge. In addition, integer are bad at multiplying with fractions like 1.8; another reason why floating-points are more likely.
