Shouldn't you go through the Grandmapocalypse?
I'm pretty sure it's true, but I need to clarify: In order to attain the optimal boost in CpS in one run, you should go through the Grandmapocalypse process in order to attain the tech upgrades it gives you, and then you should declare a covenant to bring back golden cookies. It is correct that the Grandmapocalypse upgrades (and the Halloween ones from wrinklers) will give you such a boost as to override the -5% CpS deduction from the covenant? Or should you avoid the Grandmapocalypse to keep your 5%? I'm fairly sure that you need to go through the Grandmapocalypse for the maximum bonus CpS, but I'm just making sure.
