As Tower Defense Game, the main goal of battle in Arknights is to prevent enemies from reaching the goal or the blue box in levels. This is done by deploying Operators to the field.

Deploying Operators Require Costs

Every time you deploy an Operator, it will consume costs. Operators have different costs depending on their levels. Create teams of low and high cost Operators to win!

Get 3 Stars by Defeating All Enemies

Although you won't lose the battle immediately when an enemy passes the blue line, you won't be able to get three stars for this. Make sure to take down all enemies that will appear to get 3 stars and unlock the Auto Battle function.

How do you increase unit limits? Right now I am at 8 but the "how to..." videos show the user having 10. I have been searching the net but don't see any guides or explanations so far.
