Instead of halving the remaining construction time of an item (i.e. building, research or unit), you will now be able to instantly complete the item with one click. The gold price will depend on the remaining construction time of the item and the world speed. But in general the longer the remaining construction time, the more expensive it will be. If the remaining construction time of a building or research is below 5 minutes, you can complete it instantly for free. This doesn't work for units.
List of premium features that will switch from "halving construction time" to "instant buy"
|Feature||New instant buy function|
|Buildings: Build time reduction||Instantly completes the construction of a building|
|Technologies: Research time reduction||Instantly completes the research order|
|Units: Recruit time reduction||Instantly completes the recruitment order (disabled in the last 5 minutes of an incoming attack)|
|Heroes: Healing time reduction||Instantly completes the healing process (disabled in the last 5 minutes of an incoming attack)|
Every building that is in the queue, can be instantly completed if the building requirements are fulfilled. Exceptions:
- Instant buy is not possible, if a building needs dependencies from a building that is currently in the queue or if another construction order for this building is at a prior slot.
Additional layout changes to the queues: Level changes of a building will now be displayed in green or red above the building image.
|A green arrow pointing upwards indicates that the building is currently upgrading.|
|If the arrow is red and points downwards, the building is demolishing a level.|
Every item in the queue can be instantly completed. You just need to hover over the corresponding item and click on the button in the tooltip. Instant buy also works for demolishing buildings.
Every unit order can be completed instantly. The whole package of units that is in this slot will be instantly completed.
- The feature will be disabled in the last 5 minutes of an incoming attack. The feature is only in the town disabled that gets attacked.
Every research that is in the queue, can be instantly completed. Within the last 5 minutes you can complete the research order for free.
If a hero is injured you can heal the hero instantly. This will work in the same way like for units. The feature will be disabled if an attack arrives in the corresponding town within the next 5 minutes.
Free usage of instant buy
Every "instant buy" feature becomes free if the construction time goes below 5 minutes. This will work for upgrading/demolishing buildings and researching in the academy, but not for recruiting units and healing heroes.
With the new price calculation, the price of an item will change after reaching certain thresholds (price decreases with elapsing time). Before determining the price of an item, the time will be multiplied by the game speed.
