Travian: Legends – the new video feature
Being able to shorten construction times in Travian! That most likely is a wish right at the top of the list of every player. With the “video feature” we may have just the right thing for you. It will allow players to watch advertisement videos in-game and in return they will be able to start a building upgrade with a reduced construction time.
It looks like this: In the past there was only one button: “Upgrade this building”. In the future there will be another button: “Upgrade this building faster”. If the player clicks on it, a video showing an advertisement will pop up. Afterwards the building will appear in the construction loop with a reduced construction time.
Each player can use this feature up to 9 times a day. The construction time is shortened by 25% per video per building. Once a building is in the construction loop, the time can no longer be shortened, apart from the standard Gold account button “Finish immediately”.
The feature was implemented to allow players, who so far have not spent any money on Travian and who don’t plan on doing so, the option to use premium advantages without the need to pay.
Currently the video feature is only available for the construction of buildings or their upgrades. The feature does not apply for troop training and so on.
You can view small ads from different providers.
There is no way to abuse this feature, since it doesn’t really affect the overall balancing of Travian: Legends. While buildings may now be completed faster, the “Finish immediately” feature has always been part of the game. Hence there is no big difference to a game without the video feature.
In order to use this feature, you do however have to make sure you disable your ad blocker, as otherwise it will not work. Once you have clicked on the video and selected the feature, the video cannot be skipped. Other similar features are not currently planned. But never say never. It always also depends on how you, the community, think about it.
The new feature will launch in the coming weeks. Of course you can tell us already what you think of this feature.
