    Quote from Eric Rasputin: “ Why is it so hard for them to cranny up? It's literally just clicking one button and poof! no more raiders at your door steps. From there you train deff to show those raiders than this is an active account and they will not come anywhere near it. ” Like I said before: Quote from Elisa_UK: “ Complaining that it's a war game is not really very productive. Neither is saying newbies need to learn to cranny up (we know this does not happen and we know they quit). ” It's no…

    Quote from Eric Rasputin: “Any experienced raider would not quit even if farm list was banned for a month. Hell, I have no problem in farming from my spreadsheet, its just nostalgic. There is absolutely no way for any war game to accommodate newbies by being partial to them. It defeats the purpose of a war game. The newbies must figure out how to deter raiders and there is only one thing they have to do. Cranny up. If they came into a war game, expecting kindness, then they are sadly mistaken. W…

    So many players complain about dwindling player numbers but when someone puts forward a good suggestion to try to encourage new players (like, stop the raid lists for the beginning) so many big raiders cry about it. We've been saying for years that raiding is killing this game. In the first week, veterans ALREADY have enormous advantages over newbies just through experience. Newbies have massive disadvantages, like not really understanding how critical an alliance is. So they're alone. Then of c…

    Quote from Loffe: “ If your hammer is big enough for being called a "hammer" you're not farming with all of it anyways + the cata/rams so most of the cases small diet gives more benefits anyways. ” You've just ruined my evening, TIL that I've been doing it wrong for years. Either that or you don't know how to farm more often than once an hour, maybe you've never seen that message that you've hit the rally point movement cap... naw, that couldn't be it... BRB just off to leave my hammer somewhere…

    Quote from notorious crunchie: “Quote from Elisa_UK: “I have been challenged to make a post so here are my observations for this thread. 1. Scandiwegians in general seem to be universally disliked unless there is banter about chuckleworthy foreign phrases (insert "perkele" and "megapussi" here) 2.

    I have been challenged to make a post so here are my observations for this thread. 1.

    Helga-Pataki-Eating-Popcorn-rcm222.gif One aspect of the raiding vs simming debate that nobody has addressed is: what is the cost to your life of having to send a raid list every seventeen seconds? <please discuss> Also in case anyone needs yet another debate, the numbers of "good croppers" settled imo does not indicate how good the alliance is, but how organised they are as a group, which is an indicator of the general level of experience but not the be-all and end-all. I've seen brand new recr…

    Well, as player numbers fall and fall and fall, they STILL think the solution is new races, new amazing things, new new new. (Hot tip: it's not working.) When something is not working, only a fool continues on the same path with the hope that things will change. New players are alone, disconnected from other players with no in-game chat, and then they get raided to bits as they leave beginner's protection. They quit, and this makes older players leave, because player numbers are too low. Not to …

    There has been a lot of nitty-gritty discussion here about what's been done wrong, which threads were touched in what way and how they should have been left alone, who got banned and couldn't contact someone, yarda yarda yarda. These are symptoms. Nobody is touching the root cause. It's even pointless to say that staff are doing x, y, z thing wrong, because the entire problem is the Travian HQ culture. Players are considered cheats and annoyances. They are people to ban, to police, and to modera…

    Quote from Eric Rasputin: “Quote from AJR: “I am confused how you can defend this dreadful new version of a game that was perfectly user friendly and playable before - now it looks awful and is very, very hard work. ” I completely understand what you are trying to say. But look at it from a business point of view. Maintaining a company like TG is not easy where thousands, maybe millions play every day. Every company needs to evolve according to the times. Just because the customers like the old …

    Among my friends I have two players who are visually impaired. One is now at the point they can virtually not play. This is beyond frustrating. The contrast has been destroyed on many of the most-used features. Several features are inexplicably gone (the ability to hide coordinates, the hover text over the cp). The layout is even BIGGER, making it even harder to use on mobile. You made a whole new skin we didn't ask for and you've ignored our years of pleas for a simple, basic mobile skin - all …

    Aw you'll hurt Sparta's feelings.

  • I'm kind of torn because while yes, it is a great achievement to get into the top ten page, those accounts don't really need to be any further ahead by giving them rewards that boost them in game! But it might be cool if we could think of other things that could show up in the top ten. Maybe most hero points gained this week, most daily cp points gained this week without artes/artworks, any more ideas?

    :ahoy: Maybe their recruiter focusses on quality over quantity. You'd have to ask her. Truth be told I'm quite encouraged by the suggestions that there will be strong competition for us. I'd prefer a tough battle to a snoozefest any day.

    Quote from Eli Monpress: “It seems my name is being run through the mud here. Eagon i have no idea who the hell you are, please stop impersonating me. Trouble i think enough people have discounted you being me, to even respond. Apsalar, kindly stop posting false rumours about Aslan farming me. Aslan, lighten up dude! Elisa, when messaging you, i'd appreciate in future if they weren't used as weapons, subtly or directly, against people, as a forum mod (at least thought you were) i'd expect that a…

  • Try it as much as you like, it won't do a thing to affect the wheat consumption of your troops. As others noted, the stronger your troops, the more efficient they are in surviving attacks - meaning that you get more oomph-power out of fewer troops ONLY because more of them will survive during an attack. This is mostly irrelevant for farmlist raiding, as if you're doing farmlist (micro) raiding correctly you should not be losing any troops at all. Perhaps if you are running out of troops in your …
