#1 – Spring is the season of renewal, rebirth and change. With that in mind, at Travian we are happy to announce a lot of new features and changes across the board. Whether they’re on our gaming servers, our forums or in terms of special events – change is all around.

We will begin by relaunching the Travian website: A new, responsive design that will adapt to your smartphone, tablet or computer is just around the corner. We can’t wait to show you our new page and are confident you will like the new look.

#2 – But we won’t stop there. We love our forums’ friendly community, but it’s time to give this wonderful place a new look and the functionality it deserves, so we are going to relaunch our forums as well as our website.

#3 – When planning our special events, like Rise of Alliances, we tend to try out new ideas. Some of them prove to be very successful and popular among all of you, our players. During Rise of Alliances, the alliance donation system and the defense point distribution system became so popular that we decided to include them in every upcoming server of Travian: Legends. You read that right: If you join a new server of Travian: Legends in the future, you will experience more complex gameplay.

#4 – Since we want you to enjoy Travian with as many friends as possible, we are also making it more attractive to invite other players: The rewards for successful invites will be higher, easier to obtain and now the new players will also get a reward. And once you play together on another server, these rewards can be obtained again – even without the hassle of re-inviting them!

#5 – In June, we will start the next iteration of the Travian Tournament. This time around, Turkey, Russia, France and Germany will be the host countries. The qualification round will again take place on two international servers, one in English and one for our Arabic friends.

#6 – We kept the most exciting news for last. Travian has revolved around the struggle between Gauls, Romans and Teutons for a long time, but the world of Travian is about to become a whole lot bigger. To celebrate our birthday on September 5th this year, we will introduce two entirely new playable tribes: the mighty builders from Egypt and the nomadic Huns on their fast horses. You read that right: Our birthday special this year will feature five playable tribes.

As you can see: 2017 has a lot of surprises waiting for you. What do you think about our plans? Any comments or favorites? We would love to hear from you.

#7 – Some of you might have checked the calendar, so yes, we will admit it: There is one statement in this thread that is false.
