I'm sure you guys all know this already, but with the new update GC effects stay upon closing the game. At first, I just thought it was just going to act like a fail-safe if can't play CC during a clicking frenzy or something.
That would've been perfect. but right now it actually boosts
offline production the entire time you're offline, meaning you can literally get an elder frenzy and go offline for 12 hours reaping all of the benefits from said elder frenzy.
It basically promotes you to get a good combo and stop playing the game for a whole day. which is very
bad! because, active play isn't nearly as rewarding anymore. and it almost completely removes the need to even play actively since you get so many bonuses from not playing anyway.
So... after saying all of that, my suggestion is to keep GC effects when closed, but not apply it to offline production.
quick note: this is from the stuff i've seen through screenshots, i'm playing on a new save rn so i'm not going to be at end game anytime soon. so i'm not fully aware how all of the end game mechanics work just yet. so bear with me if it turns out active play is actually stupidly broken or something. im just stating my thoughts about the game currently. thanks
