Server: 1st T4.6 2x EU

Welcome to the post about the first 2x EU server. | Welcome to the first community post on this blog.

Playing as Pepe_Goes_Wild from IP my view might be not the same as others thats why I invited every leader to leave some words!

2x server were not planned to be launched by Travian.
How nice the feedback was forwarded so we were able to play that server! <3


2x

The employees of Travian are humans.
You (will) like most of them but you (will) never like all of them.
The ones which are receiving the feedback are only the mouthpiece and we have to keep that in mind.

We got many good caring CMs which are trying to solve and communicate problems asap.
Thats really appreciated even the mood from the costumer side was/is/will never be only positive.

Thanks @Stellamini & Thomas & Laure for forwarding our feedback in the EU2x Travian Discord Channel!

We do appreciate the ones which are caring and trying to solve problems.
We might not always show that appreciation as we should – agreed.
I will not become the nicest guy on planet – agreed. 😛

4_Alliances & Interviews

The change from T4.5 to T4.6 came quite fast. Having no regional servers anymore might lead to problems which could be seen in the amount of deleted accounts.
Communication can be quite hard so I am hoping to see some adjustments on that.

Screenshot-56

All leaders got the same questions.
I did copy paste them into the blog. I did not edit any answer by adding/removing words.
The serverchat on discord is quite fun. The amount of toxic people is quite low.
3xC and IP are chatting during missions.
Hope all of you enjoyed the same as we did! 
Lets start with the interviews:

[ IP | 3xC & Edge & NBF & EdgeA & CH | CZ&SK & PNS & VT | Aemp ]

  • IP [Pepe_King]

(1) How would you describe your team to others?
Two hardworking teams playing together for the first time

(2) Which was the biggest challenge you faced on this server?
After 3xC settled their war villages, we had to attack them and there we faced some critical moments after we got some capitals crop locked.

(3) What have you done to overcome this challenge?
We proofed more than I could believe first, that we stayed together as a team no matter what have happened.

(4) What are you most proud of?
That we could withstand more than 5 alliances attacking us and defeating them without doing proper damage.

(5) How are your impressions on T4.6?
With the new oasis raiding in the beginning, the server does start faster and action starts sooner.
I like that as well as the new quest. It speeds up the long simming phase.

(6) How is your experience with the server performance?
There were mostly in the beginning pretty long lags and farm list sending took like 5min for 10 farm lists.

(7) What do you like about having a new server structure? (Europe & American & Arabic & Asia & International)
I think, that there will be more teams on any new region server and the server will get more competitive.

(8) Which problems did you faced having this new structure? (Europe & American & Arabic & Asia & International)
I think mostly tech alliances, which until now have played in their own structure,
will now maybe play on the same server as I will do.

(9) Which topic did I missed asking about regarding this server?
How fun/boring the server was. For me, it was one of the most intense server which i played.
So thanks for all the alliances which tried to destroy as and
just failed on some really sometime heroic reacting alliance.

(10) Which topic did I missed asking about Travian?
How they do solve and care about bugs which occurs during weekends.
Most companies would already be bankrupt if they every time playing an update on the server
also implement at least as many bugs as they solve.
Just shows, that they don’t have control over the code or just don’t test all use cases.

  • 3xC [ El Djadja / Peptor ]
The team is based on a solid kernel of ancient players that enjoy playing together.
Playing on the Europe domain was a challenged and required us to recruit new players.
We started as 40 players and ended up at 100.
We wanted to build up a new alliance, hoping that players will stay and play with us after, in order to create a bigger group.
Most of us a friendly, willing to help and give advice to new players. We are just here to enjoy the game as much as we can.
The biggest challenge we faced on this server was the IP alliance. It was a positive challenge, really exciting!
One of our biggest opponent, they are precise, reckless and give us problems to deal with.
Another small challenge was organizing the alliance with many new players and a fresh, inexperienced leadership.
To overcome this situation and try to defeat IP, we settled down in their area, some hammer villages.
They replied a week after or so and the war began. The war kept us busy, and in my opinion this was the best thing to do.
The server was active, challenging, something new for most of us.
I think we are all proud of having been a good opponent to IP, we faced up and never gave up.
We have as well a good unity inside the group, which was one of the main objective as well.
Travian is a game, but it is also a nice way to know nice people and discover. We were lucky to play a long 4.6 version.
We were prepared, we worked on some guides etc. This version gives a real kick in the early stage of the game.
You can farm way quicker, and start producing troops earlier.
I think, people that use a lot of gold are even more advantaged because
the early stage of the game relies on the hero to gather resources on the oasis.
The game is renewed a little and this is a pleasure to play on.
The only issues were with the lags at the beginning, they hit every time of domain/speed.
It was hopefully fixed quite fast.

Having a new server structure offers more populated servers, more players and more farms.
It is a pleasure to have more than 2 or 3 alliances as we saw in the past on the French domain (mostly for speeds).
However, it is a bit early to draw some conclusions, let us see how it will go in the next months.
Having the opportunity of speaking with other players from other places is a real pleasure!
The new domains scare people that were used to national servers,
I think with time people will move to these regional servers and have as much fun they had before. It requires time.

  • Edge [Pooper ]

(1) How would you describe your team to others?
Edge is a team made up of both very new and experienced players, all of us started randomly and ended up banding together.
We came together after our old leaders suddenly deleted and I stepped up and reorganised def and other aspects while solider organised Off.
Most of us are here for fun and not to win.

(2) Which was the biggest challenge you faced on this server?
Biggest challenge was day 50-60 when our leaders suddenly deleted out of pressure due to TR of all alliances.
We were a ship without a captain with TR and Cobra even refusing to talk to us.

(3) What have you done to overcome this challenge?
3) We reorganised our alliance by removing useless players, assigned off and def playing style although a bit late.
Started daily ops on TR with one. 0 pop each day and became more active on discord.
Generally – we reorganised ourselves and identified a core team to take care of TR.

(4) What are you most proud of?
We are most proud of the fact that despite being a team made up of rag tag bunch we are capable of standing
toe to toe with any alliance in the server be it wrt off or def

(5) How are your impressions on T4.6?
4.6, not much changed since last one

(6) How is your experience with the server performance?
Server has been good, died out towards the end. Was exciting for us

(7) What do you like about having a new server structure? (Europe & American & Arabic & Asia & International)
Makes no difference, should be merged into one

(8) Which problems did you faced having this new structure? (Europe & American & Arabic & Asia & International)

(9) Which topic did I missed asking about regarding this server?

(10) Which topic did I missed asking about Travian?

  • NBF [ollem]
    (1) How would you describe your team to others?
    group of players who found themselves together for the first time. girls and boys who see travian as fun.

(2) Which was the biggest challenge you faced on this server?
a few dishonest people in the leadership of the alliance at the beginning of the server
Many players who have never played together

(3) What have you done to overcome this challenge?
after destroying / dissolving the alliance they deleted the acc
we try to get to know each other and trust each other

(4) What are you most proud of?
I am proud of our members who are extremely good players, who with all the obligations in RL, manage to be competitive

(5) How are you impressions on T4.6?
this is my first server after 9 years, the game has progressed in every field. the game is more dynamic, and more fun

(6) How is your experience with the server performance?
mostly server performance is fine but occasionally it’s not playable. But these are rare moments

(7) What do you like about having a new server structure? (Europe & American & Arabic & Asia & International)
a large number of players in the same time zones, and fewer problems in understanding (language)

(8) What problems did you face having this new structure? (Europe & American & Arabic & Asia & International)
bad and inactive forum related to individual server

(9) Which topic did I miss to ask about regarding this server?
Relationship with other alliances:
extremely good communication, friendly atmosphere, quality and honorable opponents by the way I want to praise IP.
you are something special, you have made the server interesting and high quality.
I am honored to be part of this server because of you.

(10) Which topic did I miss to ask about Travian?
I think that’s it

  • EdgeA [ Majared ]

– missing

  • CH [Prof]

(1) How would you describe your team to others?
We are just a small team of friends who have been playing more or less together for 1-2 years.
We came here to discover this 4.6 and just have fun without making too many plans.

(2) Which was the biggest challenge you faced on this server?
Our basic objective was to relocate in order to be a little more peaceful,
to hold all our accounts that are entirely solo for as long as possible and to see if we had the possibility
of catching 1 or 2 artefacts. On a x2 and discovering the 4.6 it was already a nice challenge for us.

(3) What have you done to overcome this challenge?
We all pulled together well, we were able to clear our surroundings relatively quickly at the start of the game,
we stayed close to each other and we were able to organise our co-management and
different connection times well.
Add a little luck when needed, some strong allies found at the right time and
we succeeded well beyond our expectations.

(4) What are you most proud of?
To have beaten the French at the Euro, hahaha.:D*tongue**love*
No more seriously, mainly to have gone through a server without any internal problems,
spats or any other form of tension that too often spoils the game. that’s clearly class!
Otherwise, the fact that we had 8 artefacts with 9 accounts at the peak of our server,
if we had said it before the server I really wouldn’t have believed it!

(5) How are you impressions on T4.6?
Rather pleased with the discovery. The new features related to oasis looting are particularly interesting
and open up, with a little creativity, a whole new range of really fantastic tactical possibilities.
I have the impression that the hospital brings back a good balance in game level between off and def,
especially in the long run, but I think that 1 or 2 more test servers will give me a better idea of the question.
It’s perhaps regrettable that this 4.6, at least at first sight, seems to widen the gap between
big golders, small golders and players without gold

(6) How is your experience with the server performance?
A bit difficult to answer as it is a discovery server for many and the general level was really scattered
from one extreme to the other

(7) What do you like about having a new server structure? (Europe & American & Arabic & Asia & International)
The main advantage seems to be the fact that there are more populated servers again,
which obviously makes the game more interesting.
Seeing other “cultures” of the game, with different styles and organisations is also interesting and probably beneficial for the game in general.

(8) Which problems did you faced having this new structure? (Europe & American & Arabic & Asia & International)
For people who don’t know English very well (like me^^) communicating becomes necessarily
more complicated and not always very pleasant.
I imagine that for alliances that would be formed on the job with people of different languages,
communication could quickly become difficult and even discourage some to play in a team.

(9) Which topic did I missed to ask about regarding this server?
So I don’t know

(10) Which topic did I missed to ask about Travian?
It might be a bit early after only one server in 4.6 to draw any big conclusions,
but in 1 year for example having an opinion on some details or directions that can be improved
from the players experience might be interesting to dig into, if you have the patience to collect
all the ideas and then sort them out

  • CZ&SK [Buh]

(1) How would you describe your team to others?
we are a bunch of people who got together only thanks to the name of the aliance “CZSK”,
we are Czechs and Slovaks, most of us have been playing Travian for many years but we also have a few newcomers.

(2) Which was the biggest challenge you faced on this server?
the biggest challenge for our alliance was when our leader “RIP” ended and we were left without leadership for a few weeks,
fortunately we did not fall apart and formed a new leadership.

(3) What have you done to overcome this challenge?
I had to start devoting more time to Travian than I would like 😀

(4) What are you most proud of?
probably for players who haven’t given up until now and are still trying to play even though many of our players have ended,
from 60 people we are left with only about 20 original players who have been here since the foundation

(5) How are you impressions on T4.6?
I play after about 10 years so I can’t answer this question, this travian is very different to travian which i know from past

(6) How is your experience with the server performance?
I think good, I’ve never felt any problem with the server’s performance

(7) What do you like about having a new server structure? (Europe & American & Arabic & Asia & International)
for me it’s a great change, thanks to this sorting there is much better competition and more people are playing on the server

(8) What problems did you face having this new structure? (Europe & American & Arabic & Asia & International)
many people in the alliance don’t speak English, so when we have accepted some foreigners,
the communication is bad and it’s hard to make defense call with them etc.
because we use only Czech and Slovakia language on the discord

(9) Which topic did I miss to ask about regarding this server?
who is the biggest noob on the server: D
do not publish this: (for me its pooper, i hate this guy 😀 both of them)

(10) Which topic did I miss to ask about Travian?
for me its what I think about the system of heroes, before it wasn’t like today and I think it’s very sophisticated,
although some equipment at a later stage of the game is really useless, for exemple shield with 4k attack power 😀 its nothing

  • PNS

  • VT

  • Aemp [Nijntje]

(1) How would you describe your team to others?
I think that we are the best of the non pre-made allies. We had to face a lot of difficulties through the whole server. But we are still standing here in the last phase of this game.

(2) Which was the biggest challenge you faced on this server?
Keeping the ally together. A lot of players we had quitted playing too easy.

(3) What have you done to overcome this challenge?
Tried to get everyone on Discord and helped everyone who was willing to help others.
And also we kicked the people who were inactive or getting farmed (When they did not want any help)

(4) What are you most proud of?
That we are still standing with the few active players who are left over.

(5) How are you impressions on T4.6?
There are a lot of nice features implemented like the new task system.

(6) How is your experience with the server performance?
The server performance looks good to me.

(7) What do you like about having a new server structure? (Europe&American&Arabic&Asia&International)
There are much more players now on the server compared to the country servers.

(8) Which problems did you faced having this new structure? (Europe&American&Arabic&Asia&International)
There are lots of players who do not speak English. Our old ally leader let them all in our ally.
That makes communicating a lot harder.

(9) Which topic did I missed to ask about regarding this server?
Which other ally you love the most *hrhr*

(10) Which topic did I missed to ask about Travian?
Don’t know

Feel free to reach out to be if you have any ideas for upcoming posts!
We consider accepting new people  to our team for upcoming server – if you love playing organized as a team while not breaking any rule.
