Improve Farmland' production speed or lower the prices?

Hey there!

I did a little math for you.
Upgrading your Farmland from lvl 9 to 10 costs 1,520,000 tomatoes. Adding the 41,600 tomatoes you lose while upgrading (26 hours to upgrade times 1600 tomatoes) you get a total cost of 1,561,600 tomatoes.
The upgrade improves the production rate by 150/h.
1,561,600 / 150 = 10,410.6

Basically this means that upgrading your Farmland from lvl 9 to lvl 10 is worth the upgrade costs (including the loss of the previously mentioned 41,600t) after 10,411 hours.

10,411 / 24 = 434

Thats 434 days. Adding the many hours you lose because you cant play the game which leads to full Farmlands you roughly get a total of like 450 days which is basically 15 month.

I hope you understand the point I am trying to make. These upgradecosts are way to high in my opinion. I know you are supposed to gain ressources by fighting against walkers but come on 15 month ist just to much.

If you find any mistakes I made feel free to point them out, I am no mathematician. I am also sorry for my mistakes concerning the english language since I am not a native speaker.

I am looking forward to your comments :)

    I think all the smart people on here figured out and let the rest of us know that basically it's not worth it to upgrade the farms after level 7. I think they said it would take 23 days to start seeing a "profit" just going from 7-8.

    That's why I hang out with all you smart people. :)

    Thank you, late game economy issues have been noted. It's being looked into, no word yet on if/how/when things may change.

    Especially exploration maps are jokes for players 37+
    6900 supplies as a guaranteed reward when every building needs at least 1.5 mil to upgrade doesn't look good.
    The same with XP exploration maps. Gear 15+ needs around 1 mil to fully upgrade when we get 3900 from map. Also scrapping gear worth 1 mil XP for 5000!!!
    Come one. Let's be serious.
    About farms ;
    Upgrading to Farm lvl 8 cost 450K and gives 200 extra per hr
    Farm lvl 10 cost 1.5 mil!! and gives 150 extra. Fair?? Not really

    I agree 100% it's like taking a loan from the mafia . After you pay it all back you find hidden fees next thing you know they own your house ...

    @amiga: i do not agree. In my opinion farming of ressources is ok. Its every 60minutes: 7800 guaranted + chests. Thats >10k, for 1h. x18 (6h sleep) are 180k in one day + extra fuel/ressources from chests + events (herd and increased fuel recharge).... its 200k-350k per day.

    @topic: and this above is the problem. The value of farms are so marginal compared to the output that every player got from farming.

    For 1 hr you can do 3 exploration map. I will not doing exploration map whole day. I'm not crazy. Boring as hell. Anyway challenges more interesting.
    No time for boring exploration map with low guarantee supplies reward.
    That's my state in this case.
    Anyway what lvl you are?

    You either farm or you spend gold/$.

    Since I choose not to spend gold/$, I farm. If the payout gets increased that's great too but that doesn't stop me from farming.

    @amiga: nearly 42. payed last where survivor max lvl was 14.
    all maxed. only farms/tents/hospital left. The increased fuel event gave me millions. Herd was also cool.

    the point is: getting ressources is fast enough. but the balance between farms and farming is broken.
