New scaling formulas (locked)

 Right now: * The next ticket takes 3X the previous one * The next share takes 9X the previous one. * The next favor takes 4X the previous one. * The next investor takes 2X the previous one. * The next mana takes 5X the previous one. This means that very quickly it becomes inefficient to try and get more of anything and it is better to reset. I think we need a formula that slowly eases up the curve. Not sure what formula but one that scales down the above values over time to pretty mild increases like 1.2-1.4 for each additional increment. That's not remotly true. All of those are root functions. For tickets you need 7 Points for the first Ticket, 56 for the second, 190 for the third, 448 for the fourth, 875 for the fifth and so on. There is no factor of 3 anywhere. It's even below 2, once you're past the 4th ticket. Same goes for shares. 10 tickets for the 1st, 5120 for the 2nd (factor 512), 196,830 for 3rd (factor 38.44), 2,621,440 for 4th (factor 13.3). Since you practically have an exponential grow in your earning of points this is quite a fitting way of calculating the prestige points. I really like it. The way the points grew worked pretty well in my opinion, took me a bit to figure out the formula before this came along, since I had no clue what symbol was being used nor what the process is called, this totally makes it easier to understand how it works and when to reset things Tickets/Shares/Favors end up coming so fast that calculating them doesn't matter too much in my experience. Because the difference between any two consecutive perfect squares is equal to the sum of their roots (more commonly expressed: equal to twice the sum of the lower root plus one), each Investor ends up costing 8 more Favors than the previous one. Mana is indeed a 5x growth because it's logarithmic. If anyone's trying to calculate growth, I made a little Google Sheet to be helpful: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/19jVBOmwiHrgWPGcftxSHtQa2XrBJIt4mQabzlSC5xm4/edit#gid=0
