    Is it worth it to buy trainings to join OIL rig if your working stats is under 100k, or each 30k?

    if yes, why?

    if no, why?

    Yes. You can join Education and get -10 edu time fast.
    Yes. You can join law and get +10% increase in crimes success.
    Yes. You can bank more and get more interest rate.
    I guess there's no to this.

    At $3B NW, hell no. IIRC, there are at least a couple of stock blocks that are more profitable than bank with TCB and max banking merits, and, well, with $3B you'd pretty much be out of money by the time you have $2B in the bank and TCB, so $3B in the bank wouldn't work. 

    If you had much more money (or have money stashed away elsewhere where it doesn't show in your NW stat), then *maybe*, but you'd have to do the math on ROI on stocks vs the money spent buying trains - the stocks that are slightly less profitable than bank + TCB + max banking merits would likely still be more profitable after you factor in the cost of the trains and the income you could make working in another job instead of an Oil Rig.

    If you have the means to do so, it's probably worth it to get federal judge and principal as early as possible. Specifically principal. Beyond that though, I'd say dont buy trains.

    That is just bad advice.

    Buying trains early on is 100% the way to go, and even for older players with more stats it can have major benefits

    If you can afford to throw away 300-400mil go for trains I would highly reccomend it, as a new player you can very quickly go from 10k a day to 2-3mil a day with decent specials.

    That's what I did when I came back to torn did not regret it, already got my roi on it since last year even though I'm not in a high paying job right now.

    Also reduces your need to rehab in lower in demand jobs creating better quality of life.

    In your case, yes, if you want to join a 10* oil rig. Buying trains is good in general, because they're a permanent stat that'll always help. If you can get into 10* oil rig, tbf you have enough stats to get into almost any company. These are very end game high requirement companies. 

    Companies perks are op and to take advantage of them you must meet workstat requirementsz ideally many times more than the min requirements. High workstats allow you ease of mobility that you won't have with low workstats. They're fairly cheap. Just get them. Rotational trains are very very slow.


    Imo it's almost never worth staying in education beyond the point where you're principle. Just get out and into a good company. Player company perks are much better than career perks. Just get the career passives and move on to player comps. Higher star the betterz but it really depends on your goals

    Nah i disagree. Not everyone can be lucky or dump irl money for the game. There are so much things that money can do for average noobs.

    even for noobs, selling losses and buying some trains to get into that 10* AN for example can be well worth it
    I agree it's not always the best thing to do. But " Never buy trains" is just wrong, it has many uses, for both new and old players

    I would disagree by buying trains your increasing your daily income, higher daily income = more money somewhere else. Trains have a better roi then stocks or banks, and are permanent. What stock for 200mil will give you 2mil a day? You can do it the slow way  but your losing out on billions over time.

    It is the ideal thing to do.

    Yep. Work stats are a permanent stat. And they don't grow exponentially, so the sooner you get plugging, the sooner you can reap the rewards. For example, there's really nothing differentiating a new account and a super old account with the same workstats in a logistics comp. They'll both be earning the same and have the same opportunities available. Once you have high stat, you can get into any company you want

    For new players especially. Help you get to the Fastrack point faster for city careers

    I stand by my answer. The op shouldn't buy train just for banking. I don't think anyone should ever waste money in that if they only have 3b nw. Heck I won't even buy it even if I have 100b nw. I think waste of money.
    Never bought train n somehow my ws morethan 100k just by working in 10* company from very such young age. Not everyone has hundreds of billions nw to burn ya know. To say my advice is bad just because it doesn't fit with your stats and gameplay is meh. I think it is relatable for the average joe like the op.

    If you're new, don't buy train, just join a 10* company and let them train you for free, easy peasy. 10* companies grow on tree and are willing to take in low stat employees apparently.

    only 100mil in trains can get u to a sweet spot in a AN or most companies where a noob may benefit from. And no once did the OP mention buying trains to join an oil rig for the 10* perk(i maybe blind its almost 1am god dammit).

    Take it from a noob who has below 3B nw, All the money I ever spent in trains was worth every penny and has already made up for the money spent. If buying trains gets u to a company u need to be for your growth, its much better than waiting for weeks or a few months. Time is much important than u think. But however I do get your point, for the average semi actives, they might as well never buy trains and still be good to go

    Not really. You do know there are other train than hj with edvd ya? For noobs with money, sure go ahead. Noobs no money, go with other things. Candy trains is solid options for average noobs. If buying trains work for you, ggwp. 
    Time is much more important than I think, you say? I think time is way bigger than you think. 3 years from now it makes no different whether you buy those trains or not. Heck you do hj in 10* AN vs I don't do hj with dvd at all makes no different at all once we are here, yeah? I can still beat you and you can still beat me. Heck 5 years from now the ecans n fhc we spents make no different at all. So why you talk like torn is short term game?
    Sorry but I never see buy trains is important enough to buy. If i desperately need train, I would join least favorite type of companies who don't sell trains simply because I know the directors will give all the trains the company has for the only active employees they have. Yes, there are many companies like that. But why bother? I still get there in timely fashion with the company where I am now.

    Buying Ecans 20E - 30E for market value. No need chat, just start trade.

    Nah. Never buy train. Just join 10* company that gives free train or join company/ city job that gives extra ws for the jp like edu, clothing, or lingerie

    If you're new, don't buy train, just join a 10* company and let them train you for free, easy peasy. 10* companies grow on tree and are willing to take in low stat employees apparently.

    No i didn't have anyone. I was factionless. But you know clothing company n some companies have really difficulties to get employees that they will take anyone right? N thats was the path I chose. Second i knew it gave 100 endurance for 10 jp plus mug protection i went with it. I just wrote all 10* directors n i got accepted.

    Yeh, and even with that, your job stats are only like 90k total. so the jobs you can select are just limited.
    I am half your age and have over double that

    Beeing able to freely pick more jobs is just a huge benefit, either for perks or for some people money.
