So ive been away for nearly a decade (like everyone else i seem to speak to) , i apologise if ive missed the mark on something here and im sorry if im re asking a constantly asked question, but i did give a quick look and didnt see what i wanted to know.
I like every other player here, remembers the glory days, my first server on com2 back in the day had 28'000 registered at its peak i believe, and clearly numbers are a huge problem now and thats ok!
But why do travian delete inactives?? why? why not let them just sit there, let active players raid them constantly throughout the game? maybe im missing a glaring stupidly obvious answer here but i dont see it. It would allow players to raid big and grow bigger armys like back in the day (i know people can still grow big armys) is it feared that the big players would get too big and the small would fall further behind? But personally on my current server my like 30 square radius is just barron.
Now all the banned players are a different thing (everyone around me is banned) i dunno what the solution there is.
I realise the natars taking villages was partly helpful in preserving villages, but why not let accounts that are deleted via inactivity be COMPLETELY absorbed by the natars rather than just one village?
