Invasion B4 Christmas – Act I- The Math to Getting It All!

Let’s just get the whining out of the way… Let’s all scream altogether now.
1-2-3…
“THE ROBO-FUNZOS ARE NOT FUN!!!! THIS IS TOO HARD!!!”

There…feel better now?  No?

Well, yes, the little buggers are hard to see on white backgrounds…but, let’s remember how many of you wanted these updates to be harder, and not just a mind-numbing grind. Right?

Well…there is a lot going on, with a wide variety of ways to GET IT ALL…and the math is a little less friendly than in the past. But, it is doable…

Bonus Percentages – The Fertilizer in Donut Farming

When and if you succumb to the fine art of Donut Farming (as I reluctantly admit to doing recently), you are going to start also becoming a player that is at least casually obsessed with Bonus Percentages Earned from buying and placing a variety of items in your town, which may or may not be bought for their beauty or intrinsic value, but entirely for what they earn.  It’s like the difference between having a nice tile roof on your house, or an array of solar panels.  The tile probably fits the architecture and original intent of the structure…but, the panels are EARNING their keep…all of the time.

Or…think of it like fertilizing your crop.  When you add items to your town that have Bonus % increases, every KEM you farm, every character tapped, every rent or menu collected, will yield more donuts per square green patch.  30 KEMs with a multiplier of 200% will generate 1.2 donuts while those same 30 KEMS will generate 1.7 donuts with a 600% multiplier (at least according to Safi)..until you reach level 939.  See His CHARTS HERE.

Man…OK…so it still sounds complicated. But, using our fertilizer analogy again, your KEM plant will generate way more buds, if you fertilize it with Bonus %. Wait…are were still talking about TSTO?  And what kind of plant are you growing there, son??

As a recent convert (I won’t go into the why right now), I also started caring about Bonus % for the first time. The two go hand in hand. If you are going to  take the time to  farm Bonuts…you better pay attention to the BO-part of the term Bonuts, as in Bonus Donuts. Especially after you crest over the now-storied Level 939, and find yourself having to earn TWICE the number of XP (currently 1M) vs 500K (again currently before you hit 939).

So…Bonus % Items Really Start Mattering…if you want to play in the “big leagues of donut farming.”  I’d like to come up with some romantic or cool term for the “Big Leagues of Donut Farming,” like the “Sprinkle Show,” or the “Big Time Donut Duster” or the “Tragically Obsessed Addicts Who Play Too Much For Their Own Good.”  But, now that I am aspiring to be one of them, it is a waste of time and space.  I’ll just call it, BTDFBig Time Donut Farming.

But, why does the Bonus % matter so much to BTDFers?
