Cheapest way to buy tech for a deal

Buying tech in batches of 10 starting from 0 (barring any modifiers like gold) costs a grand total of € 860.000.

But if I'm correct, first buying 4,5 tech, than 4 batches of 10 tech and a final batch of 5,5 tech will cost you € 821.975, so you save € 38025, which is a pretty large amount for a smaller nation. This is based upon the assumption that at 4,5 tech an extra level still costs you 10.000.

Else the cheapest option would be to first buy 4 tech, then 4 batches of 10 and then another 6 tech. If I'm correct, that still save me € 33.600.

Can someone confirm this?

i was wondering if anyone can compare 4-10-10-10-10-6 to 4.5-10-10-10-10-5.5? I know there is no price change from up to 4 tech, and the price jumps at 5 tech... but what about 4.5 tech? im sure it wont be too significant of a savings, but if you like to sell tech, it could add up overtime.

here are some of the common methods without any modifications

0-10: 100000

10-20: 150000

20-30: 180000

30-40: 210000

40-50: 220000

= 860000

4-14: 100000

14-24: 154000

24-34: 184000

34-44: 214000

44-50: 134400

= 826400

0-9.5: 95000

9.5-19.5: 129500

19.5-29.5: 179500

29.5-39.5: 189500

39.5-49.5: 219500

49.5-50.0: 11475

= 824475

0-4.5: 45000

4.5-14.5: 100000

14.5-24.5: 154500

24.5-34.5: 184500

34.5-44.5: 214500

44.5-50.0: 123475

= 821975

so it looks like buying 4.5 is the most efficient way of the four listed

Extremely great find. However, you mentioned this is without any modifiers. Does the overall benefit change with upgrades, such as microchips and universities? For example, would buying 4, 4 batches of 10, and then 6 suddenly become cheaper? It needs to be found out if this is across the board or just on a situation to situation basis.

I hope that made sense.

^this is exactly what I think as well.

Well, since the modifiers are percentage based, I'd stay it's still cheaper. Gold gives you a 5% discount for example. So buying 50 tech in batches of 10 would cost 95%*$860.000 = $817.000. Buying it in the other way (first 4,5, then batches of 10, than 5,5 to get to 50) would cost you 95%*$821.975 = $780.876,25.

So you'd be saving $36123,75 instead of $38025, which would happen to be 95%*$38025. So it's still cheaper
