I think it was a combination of factors. Also, people seem to gloss over the fact that the septor was LIKELY being used to keep Loki under Thanos' thumb (he had all the same physical symptoms as a septor controlled person like the humans).

I'm pretty sure he would also have kept his intentions as low-key as possible. What if he would have been able to get all of them except for one and then was forced to wait 500 years or so to get the last one. At that point the whole universe would have been alerted to him trying to find all of the stones and he would have to spend half a millenium defending them against the entire combined might of the universe. He had to be certain that he could get all of them quickly before springing to action.

Nah you over thinking this 😂 This was a perfectly laid out plan from the start. He was testing the waters with Loki fighting the Avengers 😂. He wanted Ronin gone yep he knew the guardians would destroy him 😂 Then he decided to do it himself because he knew Gamora was lying about the soul stone 😂 the whole time and he needed to crush multiple Avengers at once only Thanos has the strength and will to do it. Trust me he planned out every detail.

I think another reason why he waited until infinity war is because he didn’t know where the soul stone was until Nebula snuck onto his ship and he accessed her memory files. The soul stone was the last one he needed to find and when he knew that he would be able to find it is when he went into action.

The real reason Thanos waited was because he needed the dwarves on Nidevelire to create the gauntlet for him. This was the only way to simontainiously use the stones and wipe out half the universe. However, until the events of Ragnarock, Asgard was protecting the dwarves on Nidevelire, and Thanos couldn't get the gauntlet made. After Ragnarock, Thanos could threaten the dwarves, get the gauntlet made, kill the dwarves, and start his plan.

Thanos couldn’t create double resources because we see in the movie (Infinity War) that the reality Stone stopes working after a certain range from the user. That is why Mantis and Drax turned back to normal when he took gamorah.
Double resources means double usage. More waste.

I think Thanos knew that there was a very limited amount of time to collect all the stones. All those in the know (and I would include Thanos) knew the Convergence was going to happen when it did. Thanos, who spent most of his life in search of the stones, probably knew the Reality Stone connected to it, just like the Dark Elves and Odin, through myths and legends. Morag was easier to predict given the tide cycle. However, add those two events coming at X time, Thanos would've known that his time to strike was very limited. I think he intentionally put the Mind Stone on Earth as a means of keep the stones as close together as possible. Rumors of the Sorcerer Supreme's powers over Time, would've been a dead give away, so knowing the Space, Mind and Time stones were in or near a single, low tech location, would've been a good hiding spot, especially if he could get the Power stone in time for the Reality stone to appear. His only loose end was the Soul stone, which still could wait so long as he could access the Reality and Power stones in the X window. He lucked out with the Sorcerer Supreme's death, but If he already had the Mind, Space, Power and Reality stones, he would've assumed he could get the Time stone from whomever had it, as he did from Strange, as Thanos understands empathy and how to use it to his advantage.

If the resources are doubled the planet would be in chaos, like a big feast with few guests. What happens to the food when the bellies of the guest s are full? It ends to trash. So, it's unfortunate and cruel, but Thanos logic has a point and the balance is to dust the half living universe.

Stones can't create something from nothing. You can't double the recources, because for something to be, something has to be taken away. That was established multiple times. That's why Thanos motivation was as it was. Because he wanted this exact thing. But since you can't create without destroying something else, his conquest was obvious.

Jonas Hanle

SCREENCRUSH you are competely wrong, Odin's death was the most important thing that set his plan in motion because when he got the location of the soul stone, at that time, he already had 3 stones in his possesion. If he was just waiting for the location of soul stone, then he would have gone for the soul stone first. But He didn't even made much efforts to find Gamoura because She is the only one who knew location of the soul stone, So according to your theory, his first step should be to find Gamoura and get the soul stone, then go for others. So Odin's death set his plan in action.

" why did thanos not just double the resources and killed half the universe instead ? " Becouse resources are still finite and living things grow exponentialy if not kept in check by nature or someone higher on the food chain. Doubling the resources would last the universe less than purging half of life

He hasn’t been in his prime for thousands of years. He’s been weak at least since the first movie (remember Laufey “you look weary”) but probably longer because he’s been keeping Hela imprisoned for all this time with his life force

The most important reason, was that he did not know where they all were, and could not make his bog move until he did. Otherwise the entire galaxy would have teamed up against him, and defeated him. He also could not have had the gauntlet made until after Odin was out of the way.

You can't just double the resources to help the people...Many of those people are not equipped to gather those new resources and you would start wars over unclaimed but vital resources. There is an infinite amount of problems with doubling resources.
