If you upgrade your HQ again, you will:
- unlock more turrets
- have more troops to use in attack (once you upgrade your transports)
- have troops at a higher level for your attacks (once you upgrade your research centre, and then the troops)
- have easier matches in PvP and Squad Wars, because the matching is based on your base score, and with your turrets at a lower level, your base score will be lower than other HQs of the same level, thereby presenting you with more attackable targets.
This strategy is called 'sandbagging', and this game has been rewarding it in these ways for at least a year now. As it's here to stay, many players have adopted it.
But you must do what you think is right (for you), of course.
