I believe there is less Natar defence in the WWs in the grey zone. I believe there is a reason for that as well...
Are "Morales" Spanish "Morals" - like Moralés? Or do you take a ripe morale, remove the stone from the middle and smash it up with some sour cream and a sprinkle of tomato and you have guaca-morale to dip your corn chips into...
As you may have seen, @Ameno has generously agreed to give up some of her time to meet with and discuss ideas with UK alliance leaders.
A Skype room has been set up and leaders added. Discussions in there are manic, positive and very creative. Massive enthusiasm so far at the opportunity to be able to put ideas forward and get some responses back. Please PM me if you feel that anyone has been missed from servers you have played recently, in particular from speed.

Ideas for the agenda are being put together now. Please message your alliance leaders if you have any burning issues you would like them to represent for you.
The intention is to nominate 6 leaders to meet with a list of ideas and issues to bring forward. The contributors would like this agenda to be sent to TG well in advance of the meeting to allow TG time to formulate responses.
This thread will be regularly updated.
I am Troy from Betrayed, so you got me.
Losers confirmed in above meta now based on coordinated attacks. You can check JJ-Spec and Virago's town names for confirmation.
@notorious crunchie Metas generally frowned upon on UK - especially 3 quad meta lol
Looks like its time for a Meta. Incomings from CTL and -FOL- on us, the NE and SE, who as far as I am aware there has been no interaction with to date. If they are getting involved in the SW then its not too hard to work out that it's meta-time. We are not concerned at this point as we understand that we have the numbers here...just interesting that these guys are getting involved when they have not sorted their own quads out - or have they???
my guide is a variant on meme's guide that was posted a few months back...my notes are on that
Man, if you do this strategy I hope you have some good allies to work with as you will have zero economy. On UK1 some people did this and I did an alternative strategy which settles about 10hrs later, but gives 2x the economy. Got a 125% still and then catapulted all of their feeders around me cause they had no production to stand against it...
Be careful doing the zero economy, super fast settling strategy above. Decent raiders are still going to settle faster anyway.
Ah, H+++ OK - thanks for the clarification. Maybe we just need so many allies to get past your vast number of spearmen...
Care to comment?
I've been in touch with the leaders and players involved to find out what happened and sort it out. They have the story. I think you should know better than to get the truth from this thread though!
I would like to be enlightened by how even the theoretical meta being discussed would have 260 accounts though? Can someone tell me which alliances I am purported to be allied with Would be quite enlightening I think!
I’m going to answer this. I think Lemon should, but like a lot of us, I think he finds it hard to stand up for himself where it really counts and this was quite a personal and harsh slam. I was also in a chat room with a few of the invitees to Munich so I’ve a fair idea of how this is going.
First of all, I think the intention to talk to the community and get their input was a good one, however, the person running this had very specific ideas about what they wanted to obtain from it, that didn’t necessarily coincide with what the people invited wanted. The game has a number of communities across a lot of domains. Each domain has very different ideas about how they would like the game to run.
Lemon asked for the issues with the UK forum to be added to the agenda. Bearing in mind that other domains like .de have also had some big issues with crew recently, and other domains haven’t had the same issues, the response Lemon got was that this wasn’t something that could go on the agenda as it was specific to one small domain and didn’t affect the others. He was offered the opportunity to have a chat about it over a coffee break.
This is the first time TG have ever run anything like this. Many of us have tried in various ways to get our opinions up the ladder for years. Like some have suggested, maybe this is shutting the stable door after the horse has bolted, but it’s the first time I have ever known TG to make any serious attempt to communicate with the community, so hopefully this may have some impact before it’s too late.
In the years I have played this game I have seen far too many good people ousted because they told the truth too forcefully, went against the party line or said what needed to be said. I’ve never seen a commercial company so out of touch with their customer base or so unwilling to listen to them. For a head of customer management to tell a player that she was too busy/important to talk to players beggars belief, but it’s how this company runs.
This is a great game, which is why we all still play it despite all the issues. I just wish any other company but TG were running it. Don’t blame Lemon though, he’s done an amazing job and has fought and argued for weeks to try to get what he thinks the community wants on the agenda. I couldn’t think of anyone better to represent us.
Well this is great then. But this is not what @Lemon said in his post. He said that these issues will not be discussed - period. He did not say that "I requested these items to be put on the agenda and Travian came back that they are specific to UK, and therefore they will discuss them with me individually over coffee".
We are not all privy to private chats.
You are absolutely correct, but I believe that HQ don't know what they are doing in general.
I won't be able to specifically discuss the issues we are experiencing here on the UK domain (unless there's a bit of free time), but shouldn't be an issue really, as the main problem is at HQ and not at the UK staff.
Why won't you be able to talk about major issues with the UK forum? You are there for 3 days! Put your issues on the agenda rather than blindly agreeing to a proposed agenda otherwise there is no point going as you do not understand, or are too immature to be attending such a meeting. You were invited to a meeting - not summoned to a meeting with your superior to smile and nod.
So who won the big prizes? I have some non-golders who could do with 150 gold
There was a "tot" last UK1 according to my getters log
If you ever want to take your game to the next level, you can play with me and I'll teach you the 3 things you posted wrong about your game there
I am going to throw this out there - maybe the reason why HQ does not listed to some people is like this - and imagine this as a possible scenario, not what I personally think is actually happening:
HQ: OK we need to implement something to improve UK forum, people are not happy
CM: OK, how about we bring on a new Mod who might be better
HQ: Is this realistic
CM: Don't know but worth a try
CM introduces new mod
Several people instantly post very negative things without even giving the person a chance
CM: feedback is these people are just hostile to staff as they did not even give the person a chance
HQ: not our fault then
Now, this acknowledges that many, many, many, of the issues that have been raised have not been addressed. But I think we all know that the QC process at TG is fairly flawed and that information does not travel perfectly from the game, forum or support to the devs. So, I think the best we can do is try to make sure that information is passed along in a coherent manner (e.g. Lemon => HQ - and we can all blame him if he just boozes up and doesn't do his job), because at the core of it you have to admit just creating a new thread to troll the staff is not working.
Hmmmm...the most important thing I see in all of this is that it looks like Crunch is a spearman building defender
The cure is contained in the Red bottle.
This statement is true, and therefore both statements on the other battles are false (Menes) and contain death.
If either Yellow or Red bottles contained the cure, then both the other two have death, which means both the red label and the statement (Menes = fales & Nils = true) are in violation.
can someone please give me the odds of the meta GotFH happening? With the tone here I think I could make a lot by putting $1 down at the moment
In response to Lokii, and what is happening in the south: I think about the highlight of today is that I built a level up on my academy in a feeder?
Correction - we did have a bit of a laugh when someone tried to scout one of our scouters and lost about 500 scouts...
