Honestly yes if you consider the fact that it contributes to the amount of upgraded soldiers you can train every 4 hours. I can't say how much this would effect it. Since I was a high sire level when soldier upgrade was implemented, but it would likely be enough o tip the scale more towards the massive spenders. You need to remember that you can refresh the cool down timer with 20 gold instantly.They already have an imbalance of those in relation to low to mid spenders/non spenders. So if you want balance I suggest we keep the alliances intact.
