The question is simple: why bots are forbidden?
I play Travian since 2007 and I never used bots. Hiowever, I stopped playing this game about 5 years ago, because this game requires a lot of time and time is something that I (and most of people) don't have nowdays. And also my sleep has become very precious. In 2007 I was 14 years old.
I know several ex-players in the same situation: people like this game but hates the idea of spending the time necessary to be a competitive player. So why don't Travian Games think of a solution for that? Because people can no longer spend like 4 or 5 or more hours a day on something like this.
Sometimes I think about play Travian again but using bots, but I don't do it because I know it is wrong. However, as a customer I believe Travian Game is wrong too, in its way to deal with this question.
Play Travian weel should be total MANAGEMENT and not how long you spend online time on an account. I've seen people share an account between 7 players, wich is absolutely withim the rules and what is the difference between this and a bot? I mean, the account will be online almost 24/7. It is unfair to players who play this alone by itself. And banning sharing accounts is not a viable solution, it is not an issue. What solution does Travian have for us? I can declare the TIME required by the game and the NO SOLUTION for it was the factor that has led Travian to decay in recent years.
Maybe bot is not a solution too. But what kind of solutions does Travian have?
