It’s that time of the year again (at least in the Northern Hemisphere) when you might want to take a short break from Travian: Legends and enjoy a well-deserved vacation.
But how will you be able to leave your villages and army without getting crushed if you don’t have a sitter?!?
Let’s revise our “Vacation Mode” feature!
You can activate Vacation Mode in your preferences, as shown in the picture above. The maximum amount of days you can take is 21, the minimum is 3. These numbers change according to the speed of the gameworld (the formula is days / speed).
In order to be able to activate Vacation Mood you need to have:
- No outgoing troops
- No incoming troops to your villages / oasis
- No reinforcing troops for other accounts
- No reinforcing troops by other accounts in your villages / oasis
- No Wonder of the World village
- No artifact village
- No beginner’s protection
- No troops in your traps
- Your account is not in deletion
This is done to prevent players from using it as a strategic tool when they are attacked or they are attacking someone. Plus it cannot be used to protect the Wonder of the World or an artifact for you alliance.
When you decide to activate Vacation Mode, you also need to choose how many vacation days you want to select. Be careful here, because once the vacation mode starts, you cannot change its length, unless you use 10 Gold to disable it immediately.
If you decide to interrupt it with gold, you will get back all unused days.
What happens during Vacation Mode?
First of all, your villages and oasis cannot be attacked. Other players will be able to see that you have vacation mode enabled.
At the same time, your villages may still be added to other player’s raid-lists, but of course they can’t be raided. Beware, your troops may starve if you miscalculate your crops, so plan ahead!
Vacation Mode is a chance to take a break, so when it is activated you cannot:
- Send troops to other players
- Receive troops from other players
- Do adventures with your hero
- Start new building orders
- Order new troop training
- Start celebrations in the town hall
- Start parties in the brewery
- Use the market place (with the exception of NPC trade which still works)
- Start new research in the academy
- Start upgrades in the smithy
- Use auctions
- Join or create a new alliance
- Start account deletion
- Set up new trade routes
What you can do instead is aborting Vacation Mode at any time with gold and exchange silver to gold.
What else do you need to consider when enabling Vacation Mode?
First of all, Daily Rewards points will still reset at the usual time. In addition, actions you ordered before Vacation Mode was enabled will mostly continue as usual (including troop training, builds, Master Builder, etc.). Trade routes however will be stopped.
As a reminder, an info box will show you a notification about the Vacation Mode, which will also contain a link to the vacation abort page.
This feature might be improved in the future, as discussed during the Legends on Tour 2019 Summit, but for now… enjoy your vacation! 😀
