The only way to make meaningful progress was to click golden cookies (and I'd get over 300 trillion in a single click if I got a lucky while 7x was going... so every few minutes basically). The new update makes it so I need to click 77 cookies of them, and the upgrades aren't there from the start.
I saw 2 in about an hour, where I spent 70% of it looking at the game since I just restarted. It was pain in the ass enough to do it once when you needed 27. Not sitting around for days clicking my way up to 77. Guess that's that and I'm done.
I got tired of clicking after about 50 cookies so I found a program to do it for me. Got tired of not being able to use my compter after a day so I gave up. Was somewhere around a billion cookies per second without clicking.
Yea idk why i let this shit suck me in again. Ive been at it all week--close my tab when i leave work, open it up when i get in. I don't like cheating by letting it sit there producing cookies all night while i'm away!
Currently at 39.679 million / second... the game has certainly slowed down at this point, which IMO is a good thing lol
