Travian isnt a mechanically skilled game.
Its a stratergy game.
And I would be happy to still play it if there were no mechanical requirements.
If youre not active enough to try again on your waves or to attempt to learn the game, this is not a fault of the game. Its simply that you're not invested enough to learn the mechanics, which you shouldn't be rewarded for.
So your arguing here that mechanics that were not intended to be in the game in the first place (Hence the nerf) Must be learnt, and how must u learn them "only from other players"
Its hardly an even playing feild. Most of my point concerns new players, in particular those that dont want to become buddy buddy and suck up to experienced players to learn things, they should be able to comete, rather than face the elitism here.
Games like "Clash of clans" etc are exploding, loads of people play them, why dont they play here..
Well clash of clans is a very simple game, and probably they do a great job of guides etc, the combat is fun and engading
Vs here, Install a custom brower or else u are unable to play the game.
Right thats a great feature love that thats gona make every one want to play isnt it.
Thing is its even worse, to have a chance u must first get the knowledge from a player to get it to work, maybe even alter your PC settings.. Its just completly wack imo.
Thirdly I have to disagree again, people with math brain will see there will be an optimal route and try to find it, probabyl stumple on a guide. Or a guide can be provided.
Travian should do a lot more to reach and attaine new players for its game.
And this "mechanics" u call it which btw.. IDK I just think its really clunky, mechanics is usually like position or timing in a fighting game, this is like making an army land some place to 1 seconds. Imagine 10,000 guys all leaving a village at 1 seconds.. its kinda b.s in other games its like sure thats a mechanic its skill here its just kinda gimped IMO.
Doesnt really fit the style of grand stratergy game, sitting there timing things to a second, sure thats the way the game has to run, but the fact that u cant tell ur guys or pass the orderss to a liutenant or something when ur comander of a vast empire of 1000s of people its just not really within the games theme.. but thats my opinion
If you think comanders where waiting untill a precise second to give comands for armies to "MOVE OUT" not when to fire or any of that travian hasn't got any in battle mechanics, your just sat there and u have to micro this stuff... Just dont think it adds to the game at all.
