    Kind of funny, I got home with 750E from stock special twice while I was offline. Decided to use DVD and E to improve happiness. I trained defense 10E per time and got blocked by torn by accessing the page more than 60 times in a 60 seconds. I used up all 750E but my happiness reset while I was blocked so I couldn't refill.

    I've stopped using anything to do with happy gains now, simply because I found out it made no difference to me whatsoever, but I disagree with the strength boost thing, I had over 1 mil strength and used 900 army points and got an extra 3 million, to a weak player as i was, that's a huge boost, now I've got another 900, but I'm saving until I reach about 50M strength

    There's nothing to disagree with - you get more bang for your buck with army points on defence.  In this case I'd recommend you save until you've got 1.5-2k points and use them on defence for a similar boost.
     
    Remember that stats at a lower level take a -lot- longer to bring up to the 50 mil cap than stats that are already in the millions.

    doesnt the casino do a speed boost ? has anyone seen the gains you get from that ?

    No. I work in the casino and no speed specials. 

     I thought that there used to be a grocery store special that gave a boost to speed. Packing groceries or something

    now I've got another 900, but I'm saving until I reach about 50M strength 

     That's a bad idea, training to get to the cap and THEN using army points. The gains at capped strength (or defense for that matter) are so low from army points compared to training at capped stregth. You are better off using army points to get to the cap, and training afterwards.

    I tried to find an example of using 1k points with capped strength, but not even Maledict's document has it, because before the cap you join a company.

    Here's what it is for defense

    You changed 1,000 army points for 1,040,066.3237 defense.

    1m? And you only get 5/7ths as much from strength, so 738,447

    Here's a 25e strength FF train at the cap:

    You successfully traversed 1 obstacle on the army assault course taking 95%of the record time
    You gained 53,702.0809 strength

    So from 350e I would gain more strength than you will from over 3 months in army. 100 days for an extra xanax and refill?

    You'd be far better off working at a fitness or furniture company, for strength anywhere near capped. Frankly you'd be better off doing many things.

    friendly reminder that this main thread exists here and should be read if possible:
     
    Army Guide Thread

    It is also in the Guide to Guides so i'd highly recommend subscribing to either that or the one above.  I simply rely on Guide to guides to get bumped so first page isn't cluttered with bump only posts.... but feel free to bump link above if that tickles your fancy.
