I think their build time was increased like 10 seconds. Yay!

the idea of train time based on res cost isnt that great, since some units are cheaper and great (longbow, dogs) and some cost a lot of res but are rather crappy (nadier, halbs)

so it kinda nerfed certain units that didnt need a nerf.

Yeah, grenadiers suck a lot now. It used to be that the only time I ever saw them was if I was playing a Russian or was using for a grenadier rush. Now there just isn't a point to making them.

Likewise with Ruyters.

They were nerfed even further. The building that produces their direct counters (Stable) is 30% cheaper.
I just don't see Grenadier rushes working any better in 1.08 than they did in 1.03-1.07. If anything they're probably worse.

The only grens we'll be seeing are probably the french UC ones.
