Time & Cost Balancing

Hey Chief!

You might remember that we announced earlier some of the upcoming "Quality of Life" changes that will make it to the next content update in Clash of Clans.

Today we are here to tell you about some big reductions happening in troop training, spell brewing, and laboratory and building upgrade times!

Should you want to read about these changes in detail, we invite you to take a look at this thread in our official Forums.
