    If I recall didn't they say a year or more ago that they would not go past 7 for hero's and 14 for buildings?? Something to the tune of not wanting the grind to get too ridiculous??

    I understand it takes more time to get more loot, so having longer times allows you to keep the same "pace". However, it also turns the game into too much of a grind. Then again...it's going to be nice to get all 5 builders busy and putting the phone down for days at a time, until I need to start to accumulate loot again....so maybe that's their plan...force people to work on their play-life balance...

    If you are using hammers or books does it really matter if it is 7 days or 47 days? With the amount of perks out there, it is hardly necessary to wait the full time.

    Just we have not seen it on hero's in years.
    Several years ago they informed us of their conscious decision to never have hero upgrades take long than 7 days or buildings longer than 14 days. I assume the reason for the change is the gold pass and I am fine with it to be honest. While I have never had the gold pass, having upgrades take a bit longer doesn't bother me as I always find myself fully maxed and bored at some point, so longer upgrades don't actually hurt.

    Well, if you got the 6th builder it more than evens out.

    I was initially a bit put off by the longer times, but then I remembered what it was like to be a maxed th12 and how I longed for something to upgrade. With that in mind, things taking a little longer is fine by me. It does mean that I have to dump more loot on walls, even with the 6th builder.

    One year ago we didn't have Gold pass and 6th builder either.

    BTW, there are 6 hero levels which take 8 days. This is not exactly 6 days with 20% gold pass time reduction. 

    7.2 days with 20% reduction becomes 6 days, true. I had missed that there were 8 day upgrades, ah well, we'll be overflowing on Dark Elixir soon enough (couple of months, if we slack)

    Do the few days extra really matter?

    with that logic then it wouldn't matter if it took a year. also you forget there will be a second round of upgrades coming later.

    Also if its not a big deal then why increase time to begin with?

    Bottom line is we always had a max days to upgrade across multiple th levels it cant be surprising not everyone is ecstatic about making it more slow/expensive to do it now.

    Personally my frustration is always the same ... I can out farm any amount of builders.

    7 days and 14 days were temporary plateaus probably chosen for psychological reasons due to our habit of thinking in days and weeks. They weren't barriers in any sense. Besides missing a fourth consecutive war while upgrading, what difference does an additional day make, really?
