6. What is an "Upkeep"?...............................................[Upkeep]
==============================================================================

An "Upkeep" is a food limitation your forces or armies uses while in the
battlefield. When your upkeep is high, the more food you produced but at the
same time, your GOLD income decreases.

==============================================================================
7. How does an "Upkeep" Work?........................................[Upkeep1]
==============================================================================

It is simple. When you train your units, you produce more food which means 
that when you have more food produced, your GOLD income decreases as well. As
you produce food to train units, there is a higher chance that you will get
less GOLD income because of the upkeep.

==============================================================================
8. Benefits and Downsides of an "Upkeep"..................................[BD]
==============================================================================

In this section, you will see the ups-and-downs of an Upkeep along with its
explanations on the next section (not the following sections below this).

==============================================================================
8A. Benefits of an "Upkeep".........................................[Benefits]
==============================================================================

An upkeep has not much of benefits but its still worth it. Here are the list
of its benefits :

a) You can keep track of your food limits
b) Notifies you if you have exceeded the food limit
c) It has levels

==============================================================================
8B. Downsides of an "Upkeep".......................................[Downsides]
==============================================================================

An upkeep has also some of the downsides or some disadvantages too. Here are
the list of its downsides :

a) You won't know the food limit unless you have at least 1 Town Hall
b) The food limit won't go over 100

==============================================================================
9. Explanations......................................................[Explain]
==============================================================================

In this section, this is where i will explain all what the Benefits and the
Downsides of an Upkeep is.

==============================================================================
9A. Benefits of an "Upkeep"........................................[Benefits2]
==============================================================================

a) You can keep track of your food limits
- This means that your Upkeep is always on the headers of the screen. You can
find that Upkeep with the Chicken icon. You will always keep in track with it.
You cannot remove it either.

b) Notifies you if you have exceeded the food limit
- When you have queued up units that you know that will exceed the food limit,
the game will tell you a message similar to this "Build more farms to continue
production"(Human). If it is, it means that you either exceeded or the food
that the unit spends cannot be carried into. If this happens, your Upkeep will
flash in red depending if you are on High Upkeep. So let's say this how it
looks on your Upkeep :

83/81

That means that you exceeded and you will receive that similar message so that
you can continue producing units.

c) It has levels
- You just won't stay up on No Upkeep. But you can proceed to other levels by
producing more food. The amount of food you have to produce for each level is
shown on the section "10. Levels of "Upkeep".

==============================================================================
9B. Downsides of an "Upkeep"......................................[Downsides2]
==============================================================================

a) You won't know the food limit unless you have at least 1 Town Hall
- What i mean by this is that when you don't have at least 1 Town Hall (varies
on the race) on any part of the map you are in, you won't know your food limit
and you can just identify the food being used without the food limit. It
appears like this :

12

That's it. You noticed there is no / and the number right? That is what i mean
by the food limit although you can still see how much food you used.

b) The food limit won't go over 100
- In some maps especially those that are already provided in the game, your
food limit only goes up until 100. For some custom maps, your food limit can
go up over 100. Not really all maps would have their food limit over 100 not
unless it is a custom map maybe made by you.

==============================================================================
10. Levels of "Upkeep"................................................[Levels]
==============================================================================

In the game, there are three levels of upkeep. Here are they :

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A. No Upkeep..............................................................[No]
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- This upkeep only occurs when your army has 0-50 of food consumed. In
addition, your peasants can bring in 100% of the gold (+10) they mined.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
B. Low Upkeep............................................................[Low]
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- This upkeep only occurs when your army has 51-80 of food consumed. In
addition, there is 70% gold income(+7) when your peasants mined gold from gold
mines.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
C. High Upkeep..........................................................[High]
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- This upkeep only occurs when your army has 81-100 of food consumed. In
addition, there is 40% gold income (+4) when your peasants mined gold from 
gold mines.

11. Frequently Asked Questions...........................................[FAQ]
==============================================================================

---
Q - Question
A - Answer
---

Q - Is there a way for me to get higher than 100?
A - If you make a map whose food is over 100, you can make more units at your 
    desire. But you won't find those on the maps that Blizzard Entertainment  
    already set.
---
Q - Is there a way to change the food consumed for each upkeep?
A - No. It just stays like that.
---
Q - If my food consumed is 51, do i enter quickly on Normal Upkeep?
A - As long as you get to that, you enter it quickly. For High Upkeep, you
    enter it quickly when you have 81 food consumed.
---
Q - Where do i find this "Upkeep"?
A - When you are in the game, you should see a chicken icon. The chicken icon
    represents as your "Upkeep" so keep in touch with that.
---
Q - Does upkeep determine your food limit?
A - Yes it does.
---
Q - Can i change how much food i have to produce so that i can proceed to Low
    Upkeep or High Upkeep?
A - No you cannot. If you meant changing let's say Low Upkeep's 51-80 food
    limit, i think you really cannot. I think they didn't have that feature to
    prevent abusing the game.
