The "Legends on Tour" summit is coming back with an update to the format. In this post, you can get all the information you need to apply and become a legend yourself.
What is the "Legends on Tour" summit?
"Legends on Tour" is a player advocacy group, consisting of 8 members democratically elected by the players to meet the Travian: Legends Dev Team, in order to discuss with, advise and assist the team in the development of Travian: Legends. "Legends on Tour" brings focused, structured feedback from the community to the Travian: Legends Team and represents community views and interests as well as the one of the communities themselves.
"Legends on Tour" members automatically become part of the Ambassador program and Ambassadors themselves.
The role of a "Legends on Tour" member
The role of a "Legends on Tour" member is to represent the player community in the development of the game. As an elected representative, the "Legends on Tour" members will have clear communication paths with the team and a chance to influence the development of Travian: Legends.
The objective of a "Legends on Tour" member
The "Legends on Tour" player group will meet with the team in Munich between May 11th and May 17th 2020. Here they will have the opportunity to take part in high-intensity work sessions together with the Dev Team. Every member will be able to request summit sessions with specific teams or on specific topics and, depending on the schedule, the team will try to accommodate these requests.
In the months before the event, the selected people will have the possibility to collect topics from their community in a special section of the forum dedicated to the event. They will also get access to a Slack workplace where they will proceed with the team to prioritize the topics proposed by the community they represent. This will allow the Travian: Legends Team to prepare for the workshop and the entire group to make the best of the time available.
The Travian: Legends Team will cover the cost of flights, lodging and transfers within Germany for those attending the "Legends on Tour" summit.
The "Legends on Tour" coordinators will be available via email, and members of the advocacy group can request 1-on-1 calls should they have any questions or concerns regarding the summit itself.
"Legends on Tour" members' obligation toward the Travian: Legends Dev Team
The "Legends on Tour" player group will sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement so that the Travian: Legends Dev Team can engage them in discussions under the assumption they will remain private, unless there is mutual agreement to share the contents of the discussion publicly.
Freedom of expression
