i consider my self experienced a bit , i got my 15 cropper to level 9 - 10 with 50% oasis and bakery at this point of the server and its considered decent i only play for 24 day now and yes i used gold
the question is when do u think i should start raid from my 15c to have the maximum output ? and most efficient .
As people mentioned already, you should avoid making hammer in capital, otherwise you will be limited with building slots while trying to upgrade crop fields.
For hammer you will need barracks, stables, workshop, tournament square, HDT if you roman as well. That's 4-5 slots wasted which could have been used to make more warehouses. Unless you have no plans to have your cropper fields high lvl and decent hammer (keep in mind you can't make Great Barracks and Great Stables in capital).
I might be a bit biased, but i usually make hammer in spawn (if capital not far), or in 3rd villages and up. I just don't see any benefit in having hammer in capital (yes you can't chief capital, but any serious alliance can simply zero the cap, so i am not taking chiefing part as argument).
Not sure how many people would like this, but i would rather TG make the game info easier to access. Some people dislike techs, some like them, but instead of forcing any kind of restrictions, just make techs easier to notice.
# NAP / Confederacies should be showed on alliance pages without a possibility to remove it;
# once Confederacy is signed, it should take 3 days to come in effect (1 day in speed servers) - to avoid hidden techs to get spiked or them sending reinf quietly;
# if someone gets chiefed multiple times without defending (or even once depending on TG thoughts), both accounts should be highlighted in surrounding reports;
# if someone is being a garage (x % production being used on other people troops while barepy having any of your own) - make their villages have a different colour or some kind of marking appear on map. Anyone with enough time spent scrolling map, could find garages and take some actions about;
# if someone is being heavily raided, every time lost res milestone is reached (100k / 250k / 500k etc), account should pop up in statistics new section - Best farms. If you being a good farm, then everyone should be able to find you.
Just some random thoughts how to combat teching. These would actually have zero impact on actual tech users, but anti-tech players could find techs easier and actually take siege action against said accounts.
Shadow_Fiend as someone already mentioned, you can't be an alliance leader without ever finishing an alliance. Start multiple servers at once, join alliances there, see which one is the most active and has the best communication. Once you find one, stick there and learn from them.
Discord, GetterTools, Alliance Def Tools - learn about those. These are important tools for alliance. If you plan to make an alliance, make sure not to go easy on people. Make Discord and GetterTools mandatory (idk about other alliance, but the one i am in has 100% participation in Discord / GT).
With good communication it is not hard to dominate server, even if players aren't battle hardened travian maniacs, but some casual noobs.
Another important thing - alliance can't be run by a single player. Find people you can trust, best would be people from opposing timezones so that leadership can have 24/7 coverage. Another personal example - my current alliance has about 10 people in leadership. If any problem arise, they can instantly answer to it.
On another note, leadership needs a lot of commitment. Most of the time you might find yourself chatting more than actually playing, so getting a dual to take care of account might be a good idea.
Not sure what else to advise, but if you have any questions - feel free to ask.
Useless stuff. Would rather be able to spy alliance confed list so that i know whose techs i am zeroing
99% of the tips here, ruins your early game hard. Make sure to not follow any of these, dear players.
Buy as much gold as possible.
Forget about the old rules and myths about teutons being the worst tribe for new players.
You are new to the game? Know nothing about Sun Tzu "The art of war"? -Then pick teutons.
Troops are so cheap and trained so fast, that even when you splat, you will have nothing to worry about. The only tribe were you can experiment as much as you want without any big repercussions. Especially with the new oasis respawn rules on new servers, teuton is the best tribe to start with in regular servers.
I say you a noob who has no friends. Played solo plenty of servers. Never had any issues with account coverage. Just get sitters, that's what alliances are made for.
DM me for invite to com3 discord server invite.
so the main problem i see, is you not being able to afford gold? Find a job and you will be good.
Yea. Got email response like few hours ago. Still took them 3-4 days to reply. And that MH responded via pm in earlier instances. So kinda confused with this one.
title self-explanatory. Zero response from MH / Support since friday. Was i blacklisted by them cause i called them incompetent before or is it just a coincidence? Or should i just spam messages to MH every few hours until i get a response?
Uff... People so scared that they are making confeds one week into server lmao
maybe troops were slashed away by travian team from FFs and multis users? 0.o cause from what i was told, not everyone lost troops.
teuton building catas?
