    Dear players!


    There is no life without progress. There is no action without changes. There is no strategy without a good balance.


    For the past months we collected different feedback from players all around the world and we want to introduce you the following balance changes.


    They include some units and hero item adjustments, building effects, alliance bonuses and general statistics. The new values will be effective on all game worlds that start after January 1st, 2019.


    What would change:


    Units:

    To make the units requirements and characteristics more balanced, we reduced carrying capacity of the Steppe Riders and increased research requirements for Resheph Chariots and Equites Caesaris.


    Tribe

    Unit

    Changes

    :rom09: Romans :rom06: Equites Caesaris Need Academy lvl 15 to research (instead of 5).

    :egy09: Egyptians

    :egy06: Resheph Chariot

    Need Academy lvl 15 to research (instead of 5).

    :hun09: Huns

    :hun04: Steppe Riders

    Carry capacity reduced from 115 to 75.


    Hero:

    Fighting strength of the hero items has been adjusted to make it more balanced through the whole game round. We also increased CP production of the Tier 3 helmet and limited artwork usage to 1 every 24 hours.

    Items Tier 1 Tier 2 Tier 3

    Spawn day *

    -

    70 (instead of 75)

    140 (instead of 165)

    Fighting strength




    :item04: Weapons

    250 (instead of 500)

    1 000

    4 000 (instead of 1500)

    :item03: Shields

    250 (instead of 500)

    1 000

    4 000 (instead of 1500)

    :item02: Breast-plates

    250 (instead of 500)

    1 000

    4 000 (instead of 1500)

    :item02: Segmented Armors:

    125 (instead of 250)

    500

    2 000 (instead of 750)

    Culture points **




    :item01: CP-Helmet

    100

    400

    1 600 (instead of 800)

    :item15: Artwork

    Cooldown 24 hours



    * The change will be implemented only on Classic (not Annual Special) version and is still subject to the server speed factor (base day/server speed).

    ** Helmets on x3 speed servers will give 50 / 200 / 800 CP respectively. Artwork cooldown on speed servers will be calculated similar to bucket cooldown period: (24 hours / (RoundDown (Speed/3) + 1)


    Resource Production:

    We kept Egyptian hero resource production, and at the same time increased it to all other tribes to make resource distribution fairer especially on early stage of the game. The table below shows how much of each resource / specific resource per hour will each hero produce per attribute point.

    Tribe Before After

    :egy09:Egyptians

    12 / 40

    12 / 40

    :hun09: Huns

    6 / 20

    9 / 30

    :rom09: Romans

    6 / 20

    9 / 30

    :teu09: Teutons

    6 / 20

    9 / 30

    :gau09: Gauls

    6 / 20

    9 / 30


    Alliance bonuses:

    In order to give more fair chances to smaller alliances we increased Philosophy and Commerce alliance bonuses effects and at the same time reduced the required resource donations.


    Bonuses

    Before

    After

    Philosophy bonus (CP production)

    2% per level

    4% per level

    Commerce bonus (Merchant capacity)

    20% per level

    30% per level

    Required donations

    51 200 000

    Lvl 5

    153 600 000

    153 600 000


    Brewery:

    It will be possible for Teutons to build brewery up to level 20, and therefore to increase their power by 20%. These changes will also affect base costs and building times for brewery.

    New building costs: Brewery lvl 1 Brewery lvl 20

    :lumber: Lumber

    3 210

    191 215

    :clay: Clay

    2 050

    122 115

    :iron: Iron

    2 750

    163 810

    :crop: Crop

    3 830

    228 145


    Trade office:

    Trade office will give 20% carrying capacity instead of 10% per level on all servers (was only Annual Special feature before).


    Tournament square:

    Tournament square level will give 20% speed increase on classic servers instead of 10% per level (was only Annual Special feature before).


    Other changes:

    We're also happy to introduce new statistics that will be effective on all game worlds starting from January 1st, 2019, with better overview about different aspects of the game:

    • World progression – with some insights about the game world including the server day, accounts activated on the game world, and tribe distribution
    • Resource rank – with raid, trade and production details in comparison to your own alliance and the entire game world
    • Village strength rank – both for defense and attack in comparison to your own alliance and to the entire game world
    • Culture point rank – per day and in comparison to your own alliance and to the entire game world

    We wish you many glorious battles and only loyal friends!

    Dear players!


    As it's been announced earlier, in this episode of Ask Travian, our game designer Jake is going to dig deeper into the challenges behind balancing and designing such a complicated game like Travian: Legends.


    What makes good or bad balancing? How does balancing affect speed? Five Tribes VS Three Tribes. What’s the challenge there?

    Hello,


    I want to thank for this suggestion and I hope that it will be implemented. I think this would be a really nice feature, I don't get happy when I train the wrong troops for the hammers (and my duals get really mad at me for doing that again and again...).


    This is forwarded to HQ in our weekly report for this week.


    Kind regards,

    Stellamini

    Hi Wolkenengel,



    thank you for a very good suggestion!

    Unfortunately, I don't think it is possible to do like this, but I will for sure ask the persons responsible for the forum administration. This would really make life easier for the communities and CMs.



    We have been promised to get a new language pack for anglosphere but I don't know when. I will ask about that too and will get back to you when I have an answer.


    Kind regards,

    Stellamini

    Dear players,


    those of you who are playing on our test game worlds (.com80 and .com83) may already have noticed that there have been some changes recently. There is a new improved information interface for most buildings inside your village.


    With the next release, we will implement these new changes on all live game worlds!


    New-effects.png


    In the picture above, you can see these new exciting changes:


    Resource icons are now bigger and better placed.

    • Certain buildings have received special icons showing their effect.

    • Improved visibility of current and next level building effects.

    And last but not least, all buildings will now display the total number of culture points it produces and (in brackets) the number of points next level will give.


    We hope that those small changes will help all players, both new players and veterans, to have a better overview of their villages and help them to plan their strategy!


    To arms! Best luck on the battlefields!


    Your Travian: Legends team

    Dear players


    On November 5th, we are going to update our current forum software to the newest version WBB5.
    Since this is a complete new installation, we will have to close the forums for 4 days.


    The Forum will be offline between Monday, November 5th until Thursday, November 8th.


    Why are we doing this?

    • The current version WBB4 will not be supported anymore at the end of this year
    • We want to keep up to date with our used software and the security standards
    • The new version will improve the performance of the forums in general

    During the maintenance phase, you will still be able to reach us via IGM and in other channels.

    • If you have issues with your account or want to report a bug, please, send IGM message to "Support", "Multihunter" or "Admin".
    • If you want information about upcoming game rounds, know what’s new or just chat, visit our official Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/traviannews
    • Getting bored and just want to chat? You might find fellow players in unofficial Travian Discord, driven and powered by the community! Join link: https://discord.gg/bWKx25D
