Here are the three finalists! Enjoy reading:
1) Billy – Ben and the Bear Skin
There are these two people, Ben from the U.S and Cherry from U.K. Ben was a member of my alliance and about five years ago, he asked for a sitter. I knew that Cherry is always helpful, so I asked her to sit for him. She said yes and both started to have a Dual account.
Three years ago, Cherry told me that she was coming to the U.S to meet with Ben. Long story short – a couple of months later, Cherry informed me, that the both would marry each other. The wedding took place on Valentine’s Day 2014.
It was a complete Travian themed wedding: Cherry was dressed as a Roman female hero and Ben was dressed as Teuton. He also wore an original bear skin! I was dressed as Gaul Chief and attended as Bens Best Man. It was the craziest event I have ever attended, but it was a lot of fun!
2) Ivana – Pancakes for a stolen village
In 2009 I started my first round of Travian. At the beginning I was not sure to play either offensive or defensive, so I did both. I played in a small and rather inexperienced alliance and we decided to get to know us a bit better. Therefore we met up in reality to have some pancakes and talk about the game.
We also invited some more experienced players, to teach us about Travian. One guy came with his friend, which I hadn’t seen before. They showed up as the last persons at my “pancake party”. After I introduced myself, his first words were: “Oh, so you are the lady who took my village. I just came to meet my enemy.”
We started talking to each other the whole evening and one week later we became a couple. After 5 years of living together we got married and to crown our relationship, a little Headuan baby was born!
Today, when we are telling our love story to others, he always jokes and tells everyone that I stole his village and as payback he stole my heart.
3) Albina – Romeo and a ginger cat
Our story is not something truly romantic, I am afraid. But I must admit, that Travian has changed our lives. It is about 2 ordinary people, each with their own character, not too young, not too romantic and nothing close to Romeo and Juliet.
She had a child and was at the end of a relationship, he was rather reserved and hasn’t found his true love so far. And then it comes – Travian.
For a game, which is as time consuming as Travian, the people around you will become some kind of family to you after a while. You have some kind of relationship with them, even if you don’t know them in person. Where did our relationship start? I cannot pick a certain moment.
One day there was my scream, “Help! They are destroying my villages!” There was him on a white horse like a real Prince Charming, saying: “Don’t worry, no one will pass! I’ll defend you!” After that, there were many game worlds, where we helped and supported each other.
Finally after 2 years of playing Travian together, we met. The first meeting was followed by two years of traveling between cities, one year of persuading, a little wedding ceremony and an own house with a ginger cat.
Are we happy? Absolutely! And we kept playing Travian, which had changed our lives!
