Hello all the nice people playing Travian.
I am here, with yet another analysis. This time, its time for an early game UK4 analysis.
I will divide this analysis into 4 parts. Eeach part will include alliances from each quadrant. I will include every alliance with 10 or more members. Alliances with less members I will disregard, since they dont play a major role just yet, or will join someone stronger in the future.
(A disclaimer, my IGN is Venom (SQ), so excuse me if you think Im being biased ) Lets start:
Basically, what this tells us, that a part of SQ went to boonies to sim and a few stayed centre to start clearing the quad as soon as possible.
There are many many red dots. All clustered in the spawn area. Strength in numbers? Lets check the statistics for these alliances:
|# of players||59||29||12|
|# of villages||111||76||21|
|Average # of villages per player||1,88||2,6||1,8|
|Average village popultion||273||300||266|
|# of 100% or better 15c croppers secured||2||21||4|
|Those croppers/# of players||3%||72%||66%|
So what do these numbers tell us? SQ is a preformed group of players that have played travian before. They have secured a healthy amount of croppers. There is a lot of other accounts in the quadrant that they will need to clear. But with time the cropper productions should make up for the difference in the quadrant and I think they (we) will prevail. MF seem like a small group as well, with about the same mentality then SQ, just smaller in numbers and a bit behind in simming.
From the picture above, you can see that there is a lot of TIN in this quadrant as well, but if decided not to show them, so that REKN can be seen better.
Broforce are about the same type of an alliance as SQ. They have their own theme, are premade and have won the most recent UK6 servers. They know what they are doing.
REKN seem to be all over the map. This tells me that this alliance recruited all sorts of players and that they are here just to have fun and play a casual game of Travian.
I will include the statistics below.
|# of players||24||21|
|# of villages||25||53|
|Average # of villages per player||1,04||2,5|
|Average village popultion||185||297|
|# of 100% or better 15c croppers secured||1||14|
|Those croppers/# of players||4%||67%|
Orangeish - PP
2 relatively small alliances. Based on # of croppers secured, a bit lesser in power then BROFORCE and SQ, but still decent. They do seem to have relatively free quadrant to sim up. PP seem to have settled on the SE border, so they might get some fighting there, but thats about it. I see them as a decent addition to a major end-game power if they stay untouched and are able to sim up some troops.
Below are current statistics for those 2 alliances.
|# of players||36||16|
|# of villages||77||23|
|Average # of villages per player||2,13||1,4|
|Average village popultion||282||203|
|# of 100% or better 15c croppers secured||12||1|
|Those croppers / # of players||33%||6%|
Since I know minimal about these 2 alliances and the quadrant seems empty, everything I had to say is written above. A pretty peacefull quadrant it seems.
This is the quadrant with the most players it seems.
Blue - NS
Yellow/Gold - NGU
Sooooo. Where to begin. 3 decently sized alliances in a single quadrant. What I see in this quadrant, is one elite alliance called NGU. Im assuming that, since nearly every player have secured an amazing cropper. At the same time, they have already establised a confed with NS. So that is a lot of players under the same roof. On the other end, END hasnt secured that many croppers and are sticking to the spawn area. They can be a pest to those 2 alliances, but in my opinion, they wont last till artefacts.
Below are statistics:
|# of players||55||23||34|
|# of villages||120||57||61|
|Average # of villages per player||2,18||2,47||1,79|
|Average village popultion||297||282||260|
|# of 100% or better 15c croppers secured||10||21||1|
|Those croppers / # of players||18%||91% (!!)||2%|
I think NS and NGU will make quick work of END. NGU really does seem elite, with a support from a lot of decent accounts in NS. These seem like the front runners right now on the server. Of course, its super early, anything can change right now, but thats just how it seems.
My prediction for arty time:
What I think its going to happen on the server, when artefacts arrive. I think SQ, BROFORCE and NS+NGU will have already cleaned their quadrants till then. The race for artefacts will be huge. SW seems underwhelming and im not quite sure what to think of it. They might just wait it out and join a winning side in the end, or they might make a server more interesting and join the underdogs. Too early to tell.
I hope you enjoyed this analysis. Feel free to drop your own input on how the server will going to progress. It can turn pretty interesting
