I'm looking at my profit loss ratios the upgrades seem to be kicking my corps ass profit wise. Nexus Prime on LU. Wondering if the Corps will level out before the econ protection goes out.

If you're set on automatic upgrade for both types of upgrades, probably not. Dependent to a certain extent on trade strategies, market conditions, and corporation type.

I've seen folks upgrade one side or the other to max, and then start on the other.

I've also seen folks vary when they order upgrades (like the corp is making a profit, order both, wait until a return to profitability and repeat.)

I'd go off automatic both sides, and find a strategy that works a bit better for your bottom line and individual playing style.

Hope that helps,

Remember that effectivity upgrades only reduce the number the number of employees used, by losing some manual workers and replacing them with fewer higher workers. This may also cause an increase in your salary bill because the hi-tech earn far more. So not up-grading the effectivity may be an option, at least 'til you get the productivity upgraded. But eventually having fewer employees in each corp means more spare to build extra corps = more income hopefully.

Aye, Crafty. I'm thinking of using the effectivity option when I start my second enterprise - going to specialize in country consumption products to start. So want to keep quality upgrades down, and smooth down to 120ish to 150ish quality. Putting them in my own countries with good corp welfare should help the productivity side out enough to keep them marginally profitable, as long as the market isn't completely flooded.
