Really sad to see the state of the forum right now. Such low levels of engagement. *sigh*
But still, even if split, 1hr is still very very low.
Like I said, it's not low if you plan your account development properly. One of the major factors as to why this 1hr is enough in most cases is that experienced players like Lem join one of the best alliances in the server. That in itself is a huge deterrent for potential attackers. If some guy tries to push his luck, your alliance will (should) come to your rescue.
Sure you won't be able to raid like a a madman with just 1hr a day but in the grand scheme of things that is not needed. You can make a very respectable hammer or anvil without raiding. The final goal of this game is to make sure your alliance wins. Someone like Lem who has a rich history of being a travian veteran with hundreds, if not thousands of medals, will most likely be jaded.
Like medals and ribbons don't matter anymore when your enemies start quaking in their boots when they learn you are on a certain account even if that account doesn't look as developed or void of medals/ribbons.
Sorry. Got off on a tangent there.
1 hour per day is more than enough to maintain a respectable account that actually contributes to endgame.
What. 1hr per day on speed server and still be competitive. And I wanted to join the next speed round. It should not be worth it then?
Don't compare yourself to Lem. That dude is crazy. He can do it because he is Lemon. Others are not him. 😂
Jokes aside, what he said is true. You don't need much time if you allocate your time properly. When he says he needs only 1 hours a day he doesn't mean 1 hour straight. That one hour is split into different sections that cover 24 hours. You just need to have a good game plan to execute it. And of course, deep pockets.
Always remember, spies are good and don't let anyone tell you different.
The best and most efficient way to destroy your enemy is to have a spy infiltrate them (Granted you have a team with working brain cells).
If anyone tells you that this is not fair or is cowardly, just laugh at them. Expecting fairness in a war game is like expecting your enemy to let you off because you just want to 'have fun'.
So you're saying everyone is just wasting their time here, the game is tailored for the selected top 1% richest and all these new features are useless?
Wait, I thought everyone knew this?
You guys give TG too much credit if you think they're going to listen to you after years of not listening to anyone.
Many have been down this road, and many have said sensible stuff with good reasoning but if TG listened to us then they'd lose more than half of their player base (cheating scumbag whales) and their revenue along with it.
This is what happens when a game company is focused on making money rather than making the game enjoyable for its player base.
Eventually, we're going to get a replacement for Travian and we'll leave. That day is coming soon.
What a brilliant way to recruit spies. I applaud your diplomacy.
So I started on COM3 in 2009 with TB The Borg? which over the years, evolved into TR Triumph. Some really great players and leaders and friends. Anyone else remember nighthawk, starlilac. Bratac, Scout, Tums, WARPIG, falcon and alfie, brm and Dani, Digital Reaper, Commie, nicealice, hiccup, Percy, Ganghista, rikiwatusi, mark, Lanrete, Cherriii, RagnorLothbrok, wangiri, Lindvior/Merlin, firefly and Dolphin ??
There are so many Ragnors over the years I don't know who is the OG lol
I remember Alfie tho. Think he's in my Skype. And you of course Dragun 😏
i played travian seriously around 3 years ago, yesterday my friend asked me to join him on a week old server, i actually have quite a few questions in mind.
how important is the first week? being a second week player, does it mean i cant create a successful guild with my friends and compete for the ww?
how important is the highest climber medal? i remembered myself trying to get one last time (and succeed) but does it really matter (for example: allowing me to get into a top guild)
what should my early game strategy be? i have heard of people upgrading mainly iron and barracks to boost the population in order to get the highest climber, does this actually work? how badly does it effect your early game growth?
as a roman, how many troops do i need to have by the end of my 120 hours protection? or is a guild all i need? in my experience, people tend not to attack others in a top guild.
with hero levelling, is fighting strength the thing i should try and max out first? or is this wrong? should i sell my cages early for quite a bit of silver or should i capture animals instead?
theres a 125% 15 crop literally 2.8 squares away from me, i feel incredibly lucky as i know how insane it can be but at the same time i have no idea what i should do? should i rush level 10 residence and settle a village there and mane it capital? or should i settle village around it so i can protect it? is having a 15c as a second village really a good idea? my friend says it isn’t but i really want it and i am afraid someone will get there before me
i an sorry i asked a lot of questions, i hope its not too much... thank you in advance
News flash. No one cares about the climbers medal.
The first week is crucial because you need to efficiently build up your village so that you can settle a 150% 15c cropper or something closer. People don't build iron a lot. It's mostly wheat. As for cages, if you plan on using gold a lot then cages could be useful as you'd start to buy them from the auction house. But if you do not intend on golding heavily then just sell the cages for a profit.
Always settle your capital first which is the cropper. You dont have time to build a village around it and then settle it later. The moment you said guild, you probably have played MMO's before. Travian is a completely different ecosystem. As for getting into an alliance, just do your best and the alliance will come to you. Or apply to them ... Nicely.
I have not seen the statistics, but how did you determine the cause? Even if so, are you sure these players (or accounts?) were not bot users or multies who became less profitable under new rules?
Entirely possible ... I don't disagree ... Just saying that the player base is reducing with each year which says something ... It could be bots or players, but from TG's point of view it's still a loss I would say
Classic was more fun and challenging for teamwork is how I opine. The evolution of TG has basically been a run for the gold...
Just my 2 bits.
We can't blame TG completely because at the end of the day they are a business, they got people pay.
And let's face it, browser games popularity is decreasing every year. I don't like how TG keeps expanding and keep taking on more projects (games) when a lot of their games are not fixed yet.
Because, I'm sure TG knows about the rampant cheating that happens in Travian and I'm sure they know exactly what part of their system is being taken advantage of by cheaters. But they cannot/will not do anything about it is because all that is revenue. BB had a statistic somewhere where within one year, Travian lost around 200k players, because of their new bot detection program and also maybe the confed rule. They should just keep the game simple as a throwback because in a few years, browser games will become non-existent in the gaming community except for a select few who cannot or do not handle the rest of the gaming world that well.
TG should honestly stop trying to evolve and instead provide a small space for browser game enthusiasts to come here to relax and enjoy and get away from the noise of Triple AAA titles or in the near future, VR.
You have no idea how much multi accounts are there right now. It a lot more than you or I think. It's a serious problem that needs to be addressed.
Under the Automatization section for the celebration queue feature. According to the picture shown it seems like you can only queue celebrations if you have enough resources at that particular moment as seen in the pic that you can queue the small party but not the large one.
Lets assume that we do have enough resources at the moment to queue the large party but what if at the moment its time for the large party to activate from its queue? Will it activate, will it be disabled, will it switch to the small party, or any other scenario?
wait what its not against the game rules? I got banned on the 5x server for having 2 friends create me 2 personal farms and i would just farm them once the village was established. Multihunter claimed it was against game rules and deleted both personal farms. im confused are you guys trolling farzeer as in the same way that people say making a multi account for the start of server to clear oasis is not against game rules or are you actually being serious?
In hindsight, the rule does say that it cannot be for personal benefit
Sending res and deff to the WW is for the alliance and not for oneself
But yes.. I'm caught in a loop whether sending res to arti holders is justified ...
It all comes down to nuances imo ...
Rule 1.1 is a tricky little sob and I don't think travian really put much thought into it by comparing rules to game mechanics ..
EDIT: I'd also like to add that you probably got in trouble for farming them ... If they were sending you res via the marketplace of their own volition, then I dont think a rule would have been broken ... But we would need a staff to confirm this lest you get banned again
shut up cavallera you troll
- § 1.1 Each player may only own and play one account per game world. An account must always be played for its own benefit. Accounts that exist solely for the benefit of other accounts may be permanently banned.
Attention ladies and gentlemen, class is in session.
We have a scenario here that many have only heard about but have never encountered.
This my young heroes is called "Digging your own grave"
The moral of this scenario being "Think twice before you speak, or should I say, type .. huehuehue :D"
Well Rip lol .. its been a good run .. Guess the spikes weren't enough. Nice diversion tho
How accurate is the Military rank in the general tab of statistics? For example, if I see that I have the number one deff in the whole world (that server) is that accurate?
So, how's everyone enjoying this server?
