Looks like I was told about this a couple days ago but just found it in all my messages.
The reason for the big crash on Monday was due to an actual physical break down of a piece of equipment of the service provider for Travian.
As for what equipment and the specific parts, was not informed and did not ask. I am not too concerned about knowing that deep into what happened.
Just thought I would let you know since you were asking.
How strange... We had the same kind of downtime and maintenance for over 24 hours not so long ago.
As for the rest, it is the usual crap served by TG team. I'm sorry for those who have to use it against their thinking, but as employed (if they are free workers, I don't see why they stay, or do they like / love to serve people crap ?)
Gift and not compensation : read the terms... We have never been customers, but mere "users" and "players". And this company advertising a free game is actually talking about money a lot for a free game. Just have a look at the so called terms : 8 pages out of 13 are talking about money !!!!
