Research is a time-based progression mechanism where Research Points are generated at a specific rate and stored in an amount determined by abilities unlocked in the Skill Tree. There are two pools of Research Points: stored and collected. Research Points are generated automatically, whether the player is logged in or not, in the stored pool. From there, the player can manually transfer them from the stored pool into the collected pool. Only collected research points can be spent in the Research Trees.
