My game time is up to 9 hours and I'm getting 12, no, 16 million cookies per second.

After upgrading them a lot, each one of my cursors now outproduce 300 farms. 13 hour, 65 million cookies a second.

I think I prefer CandyBox to this, but it's the same kind of fun. CandyBox 2 is coming out soonish!

After letting it go on its own, I came back tonight and had 20 billion cookies, at the rate of a little over a million per second. After some upgrading it's at just shy of 6. By the morning I should be able to up that considerably.

I kinda want to rewrite it to buy the cheapest first, but that'll have to wait.
[...]
Also you might want to go into settings and turn numbers and particles off.

I assume you mean you want to buy whatever would optimize your ROI? For example, a factory produces four times as many cookies as a mine. I think it therefore stands to reason that as long as a mine is cheaper than 1/4 of the prize of a factory (minus some epsilon to account for the increase in prize of every subsequent min), you should buy the mine. Or am I thinking too simple here?

Also, thanks for the hint about the effects.

It's a bit simplistic - as there's a different amount of x2-upgrades for every building, so investing in more than the absolute minimum of say farms, factories and mines will lead to a slower upgrade path. Also, you might catch up in the long run if you go a bit slower early on due to waiting for higher level things rather than buying several of the low level buildings.

That is until Clicker upgrades start being affected by how many buildings you have. Also when Grandmas start making more cookies per Grandma the more Grandmas you have.

I'm currently producing 1.87 billion cookies per second.

As of this morning I'm at a measly 44 million cookies per second. I've only been playing since yesterday morning, and wasn't playing all that efficiently though. I hope to be up to a billion per second by tonight.

You need 100 of each (and 200 cursors) for achievement purposes, so even if it slows you down at first, it helps for down the line.

For some reason the title of this thread makes me feel uncomfortable whenever I read it.

Probably because the "wut" is annoying as hell and you can't change it to be correct. You just have to stare at it, losing braincells from stupidity.

Also, for those cheaters:

On the contrary, it's finding a different way to play. Also there's nothing stopping you from changing the "wut" in your own post.

I'll just agree to disagree.  Also, that is the way it was spelled in the topic so I couldn't change it.

See: this post.

According to someone else, about a minute, but I didn't keep count myself.

I cheated and checked. You have to click five times within a third of a second. Good luck!

(alt+shift+num lock on windows activates a mode which lets you double click with numpad +. Turn it off again with the same combo, also turning it off sounds crazy)

But that doesn't change the thread title, just the title of your post and who you're replying to.

Also, someone did a spreadsheet a while back that helped with min-maxing Cookie Clicker, but it failed to take into account some bonuses.

Also, in that Cookie Clicker game.. farms seem useless. They max out at 2,000 cps at 100.. everything else is better by a large margin.
