2018 Tournament Finals

We are testing a brand new User Interface, a new background and some other small changes on our PTRx3 gameworld! 🎨
📌 PTR is the acronym of Public Test Realm. PTRs are used to test patches before we release them to the public. Unlike standard game worlds, you’re one of the first people testing a new build which can often be unstable or otherwise non-functional. Accessing the PTR and reporting bugs is one of the biggest services you can provide ❤️

  • Dear players,

    as you know, the Tournament Finals game world is struggling due to the disruptive behavior of a group of players who deliberately decided to sabotage it. Until around the 22nd of February, the Tournament was proceeding very well, with a lot of fun and incredible battles organized by the biggest alliances in the world. Our aim has always been to provide a platform that gives the opportunity to compete with and against the best players. Unfortunately, a group of players decided to deliberately exploit a technical gap to destroy the game world, making it unstable and generating a bad gameplay experience for all players.

    Even if in the recent years we have managed to significantly increase the technical quality and to decrease sources of error as much as possible, we (as the team behind Travian: Legends) also expect the community not to exploit game issues with the sole purpose of disrupting the experience of other players.

    To make sure we could take the best possible decision regarding the current state of the game world, last week on Friday we have met with some of the representatives of the major alliances / metas of the Tournament Finals to discuss how to proceed (you can read all information here).

    Most of the leaders asked us to end the Finals immediately and make the Natars win the game world. On the other hand, we received a lot of feedback from individual players who asked us to continue the Finals.

    As our Tournament T&C do not give clear guidance on how to handle the present situation, we have met with our lawyers this morning. Our lawyers advised us to deal with this regulatory gap by applying the principle of good faith. This means that a fair compromise has to be found which considers the interests of all players involved.

    After evaluating additional options, reviewing the chat with the alliance leader and the feedback we received via our support system and forum during the weekend, we have decided to proceed as follow:

    • The Tournament Finals game world will be set to maintenance mode, tomorrow 05/03/2019 at 10:30 UTC+1
    • The server will get a rollback. Everything will be reverted and set to the status of 22nd February 2019 from 19:00 UTC+1.
    • The Travian: Legends Finals will reopen on Wednesday the 06/03/2019 at 14:00 UTC+1
    • Some prevention measures will be taken to reduce the mass-starvation exploit by players. These measures will be announced separately.
    • Every player will have 50% of the Gold bought until 22nd February added up to his/her account.
    • The Gold Transfer link feature will be activated on the 2018 Tournament Finals game world, so that you will be able to receive the remaining available Gold at the end of the server, or after deletion, to use it on any game world of your choice globally.
    • An email will be sent to all participants, to inform them about the happenings, so that they will know their account is still there, and there is still the need of their help to win the race!

    We know this solution is not everyone’s favorite and we are sorry for it, but there are many aspects to be taken into consideration in such cases.

    We will do our best to make sure things go as smooth as possible, and we hope you can still have an exciting end-game phase on the Tournament Finals.

    Your Travian: Legends Team

  • Dear players,

    as mentioned in yesterday announcements we have some additional important information for you regarding the 2018 Tournament Finals rollback.

    Additional compensation:

    • after checking the technical feasibility we are ready to announce that we are going to grant an additional compensation of 500 Gold (on top of what mentioned above) to each Tournament Finals account, regardless whether the player bought Gold or not in the past.

    Gameplay information:

    • all troop movements that were "on the way" at the time of the rollback will still be "on the way".
    • the "Fool's Artefact" will change its effect immediately when the server is restored and this new time will be kept for future changes.
    • we will try to make sure that your trade routes work correctly, but we suggest you check that they leave your village as planned. Should this not happen, the fastest fix will be to disable and re-enable them again.
    • The no-starvation will be enabled for 4 hours after server is back online.

    Prevention measures:

    • every attack to Wonder of the World or Artefacts with less than 20.000 units will turn home right before to arrive at the target. This will not apply for attacks including heroes and chiefs. This amount was requested by the alliance leaders we talked with. The exception for Heroes and chiefs ensures that players can still move and/or chief the Artefacts.

    We apologize again for all the inconvenience. Thanks for your understanding,

    Your Travian: Legends Team
