I wanted to get some thoughts on an efficient plan for getting to SH 20 and beyond. By my calculations, it will take a bit over 79 days to get to SH 20 based on all other upgrades that are required, and another 15 or so days for ‘not required but resource-growing upgrades to do before then’.
For background, I’ve been playing for about 2 months or so, have been F2P but did buy the Black Market VIP deal. Currently I have 1 4* (not maxed), 9 3s (maxed) and another 13 3s (not maxed). I have 3 EHTs saved up for the Xmas event and have 2300ish gems.
Currently I’ve been running TC13 to try and get a couple 4s on the way to TC20, however this uses up a good bit more food than TC12 and only gives a small chance for 4s. I don’t have a great feel for food needs at higher levels. Is it worth it in the long run spending the extra 4.7M food trying to get 2-3 4*s before getting the TC20s set up or would it be better to store food in a TC12 until TC20 is online to save on the food costs?
My current thought is getting farms / mines / tower to L15 and then parking them until TC20 is online. Would it be wiser to build up mines / farms / tower / food storage higher before doing that?
Thanks for any help all.
