 As the round gets longer an longer, snipers’ advantage shows even more. That is still not considering that it can attack. Also, ice stalling become possible in btd5 after the disable of the regen farming in flash. this become another method for infinite money. wait a second. how many farms can you fit after you have a screen of temples? I found this thread useful for my games. i found a lot of noobcakes in this thread. btw i play on ninjakiwi, not kongregate Let’s see. A banana republic generates 25 bananas each round worth of 30\$(Considering you have valuable bananas) So,in 1 round,you will have 750\$ cash. The monkey bank gets 630\$ every round(Considering you have banana plantation,or 2\3) Let’s say you are on normal,so 1000+500+1400+3000=5900,so it costs 5900\$ to get a 3\0 farm. Considering 750\5900 gives me 7.86,it takes 7 rounds to get another 3\0 going. In the same 7 rounds,a 2\3 farm produces 4410\$,which isn’t enough to get a 3\0 going,much less a 3\2. 3\2 is definetly the better choice,but if you’re using dartling guns,then the bank might be smarter. I’ve just done the math and you make \$3286 with the factory in one round, and only \$1128 with the bank in one round… so technically the factory is better than the bank when maxed out. and you make \$11360 with the factory in 3 rounds, and you only make \$3358 with the bank in 3 rounds… > *Originally posted by **[masterlevi84](/forums/225/topics/305709?page=3#posts-10095855):*** > > I’ve just done the math and you make \$3286 with the factory in one round, and only \$1128 with the bank in one round… so technically the factory is better than the bank when maxed out. and you make \$11360 with the factory in 3 rounds, and you only make \$3358 with the bank in 3 rounds… the factory and farm were made for different purposes. The factory goes with the traditional keeping your mouse near the crates to collect them, the farm does it manualy ( at a lower gain ). That said, the farm was likely made with the fact that some people might not want/cant collect the crates of the factory. BANK, DUH! I like factory better Both. I use the largest plot of land to put factories, and then leave my mouse over the center. Last game I had 9 factories. Then I fill out other areas with Banks. Let it run 7 rounds, then collect. Be sure to put a hut down for a discount on upgrades. Bank gives around 18k in 7 rounds, while factory gives you 3k per round. So, it's almost as good.
