... Golden hour is a load of rubbish as well. Its a myth put into play years ago by the hourly prestige pinchers. Its lack of supply that makes loading times high. So when you smart, no it all players, haul direct in golden hour you are in fact the ones making loading times higher.
Safe to say, you have little to risk from being one of those know it all players.
FYI... Happy Hour was leveraged by city levelers to close rgs in a hour, long before prestige farming was even a thing.
The biggest driver is Utilization not supply. Dancing was an innovation many years ago to level cities faster by minimizing utilization. The math on chained hauling is very rare that chained hauling benefits total tons delivered. The counter argument is always. "But if I don't chain haul, it will eventually be worth while" That's like saying... "I could win if I wanted to".
My senior project in college was to recreate the formula that "invented" anti-matter. I am used to knowing things people insult me about. But I manage to enjoy the game none-the-less. I am imagine we are on different ends of the spectrum when it comes to knowing things nobody else agrees with, but I suggest you try to shoulder that burden with as much grace as possible.
