The Factory : Short or Long? Hmm... a sellbot building? Do you want to take on the sellbot boss himself, the VP? Of course, you do! Maybe it's too feel accomplished, to spend time with a friend, make some friends, complete a task, or if your like me - you want to max your suit for those 5 extra laff points! Assuming you have your sellbot suit, you will need a promotion! You get a promotion by collecting merits from sellbots. . If you go into the factory waiting/boarding room, you will see toons with "short" and/or "long" thought bubbles above their heads. Short and long are too different routes in the factory. It simply means, if you take the short route you defeat less cogs and receive 240 merits or 480 during an invasion. This is the most popular route. Sometimes you need more than 240/480 merits, than you go with long which provides you with 388 merits or 776 during an invasion. The factory is the best place to gather merits but sellbot buildings, especially big ones also provide a lot of merits as well .Although, you will most likely need to repeat factories or cog buildings if your a high level suit and try to do this in an invasion! You'll be taking on that VP in no time!
