It can be quite good late game if you can get Grand Harvest.

If you can't spend the money on anything else, you don't need the money it gives you anyway. tongue.gif

Disagreed. Its a 15% boost to your economy from Grand Harvest. Can't pass that up. Its much better than building more Farms in late game.

Grand Harvest is one of the most underused upgrades in the game, which is very stange to me considering how good it is. Buying it in late game is counterintuitive, unless you have a lot of trouble expanding for some reason or you have already maxed out your command points. Mid game is the best time to buy it tbh imo because it allows you to purchase late game units like Rohirrim and Gandalf, and get upgrades.

getting this shit midgame is absolutely senceless
i think it takes like 10 mins to get the costs for everything back when you get it while not having tons of lvl 3 farms + 1000 cps

Disagreed with both especially with Pie tongue.gif
Tell me.While you're spending 1500 for the market and then other 1000 to have the +15% your enemy is simply waiting you to get it?I mean using 2500 $ in midgame who gives you NO UNITS is a bit dangerous.You could get it yes,then you're gonna get owned.

2500 are still a lot of cash (also in lategame)
you will be handycaped in these 5-10 mins till it pays itself...
the marcetplace must make like 3000 res + for you to make it worth the costs + the time (which should take easily 15 mins)
the marcetplace is basically like a bank
it takes LOTS of time (to much) till you get the money back when you invest in it

Meh, can be used with maxed out cp units since you dont have to buy more, but like i said the reasonable situational times when you can get it and use it are to rare, so rare that its pointless to get.

basically you get it with a cashflow as an insurance policy that if something retarded happens, like losing all your cp to army of the dead, you will have an eco that can both fill it up in notime and allow it to be upgraded asap. Or something of the sort.
