As it stands now, the admins have achieved their goal of making buying gold the only way to make money in this game. There have been a few articles lately about the futility of investing in companies, one article figured that an investment in a Q7 weapons company now would start making profit in 36 YEARS! Now I'm not presenting a new concept or unveiling the answer to all our problems here, but just looking at a different option to spending your hard earned gold on worthless companies.
My theory is that you'd be better off investing your gold in Training Grounds. Here's the maths bit:
Each of the 4 training grounds costs 170 gold to upgrade so thats 170 x 4 = 680 gold to upgrade all 4. If you do it during the 45% off promotion this takes it down to 374 gold.
To use all 4 training grounds cost 2.87 gold per day. With the 50 gold training contract special offer, training cost is reduced by 90% or 0.287 gold per day. Training contracts run for 30 days so 0.287 x 30 = 8.61 gold per month. Add the 50 gold to that and you fork out 58.61 gold per month on training. That sounds like a lot of gold (About 713 gold per year) and it is but what do you get back from it?
All 4 upgraded training grounds will give you 90 strength per day or 2700 over the 30 days(32850 strength per year!). 2700/250 = 10.8 super soldier medals or 54 gold. You get 9 strength per 5 days for completing your daily tasks or 54 strength or 1 gold worth of medals per 30 days so thats 55 gold per month back from training.
So if you add it all up 58.61 - 55 = 3.61 gold is spent per 30 days for 2700 strength. Assuming you get your hard worker medal every month you could be making 1.39 gold per month(About 17 gold per year) along with your tank making training. At that rate your initial 374 gold investment would be paid back in 22 years
As I said, nobody is meant to make money in this game anymore except the owners but at least this way you are getting the maximum training every day and it pays for itself pretty much.
Well thats my 2 cents worth on the matter, hope you find this article useful and if I made any maths errors forgive me. I'll see you guys next time o/
