T5 Beta Chronicles: Of friend and foe

My switch to governor now lies a few days in the past. I’m still angry at the attacker who smashed part of my troops – even if it was only a relatively small number. But there’s no time to be grieving. A lot is happening in the surroundings of my main village. Read More

T5 Beta Chronicles: The king says his goodbyes

Alpha Diary: The first days

As most of you will know, the T5 alpha started on Wednesday. We have decided to do an alpha diary. Before you ask: no, this is not to annoy those, who didn’t get a key. Rather, we just want to give all of you the opportunity to get a first impression of Travian V. On top of that the players of the alpha round are  also invited to read and comment here. You are invited to share your experience. Uncensored, we will keep you updated on how we are faring. As mentioned already, your feedback is important to us. Hence you will find posts from our closed alpha forum in this diary every now and again, in which other players describe their experiences.
